160 Duncan Bhaskaran Brown: Real Men Quit… Drinking!

Jun 10, 2024 | Fitness, Personal Development, Podcast, Podcast Episode, Wellness

 EPISODE 160 of GROWING OLDER LIVING YOUNGER focuses on alcohol use, excessive drinking, and the destructive effect of alcoholism on health. Alcohol consumption is highest in the Boomer Generation, and there are differences between alcohol use in men and women. I speak with Duncan Bhaskaran Brown, author of “ Real Men Quit. Our conversation revolved around the common assumptions that lead men to indulge in excessive drinking, and the importance of understanding the advantages and disadvantages of different systems for addressing addiction. We discussed how to overcome alcohol addiction in midlife, emphasizing the need for empathy and open communication and touched on the effects of alcohol consumption on health and wellbeing, including the impact on cortisol levels, sleep quality, memory recall, and brain shrinkage. As both of us enjoy dancing, the conversation also touched on the social advantages of dance and how it can be enjoyed without the need to drink.
