2022-08-22 | Huberman Lab on alcohol

This video is specific to alcohol, so I would recommend it to someone struggling with alcohol specifically.  I think one of the most important things to do when attempting to change a habit like drinking is to approach it objectively and with curiosity.  Learning about the science of alcohol and its affects on the body is one way to do that.

Suggestions?

I plan to add to this list over time. If you have found a resource for addiction that has helped you, please feel free to leave it in the comments section!
