Alcohol: A Friend or a Foe?

Updated: Feb 10

When it comes to alcohol, we've all had our fair share of experiences with it. Some of us may have overindulged on multiple occasions, using it as a coping mechanism for past traumas or to drown out unwanted thoughts. At the time, it may have felt like it was helping, but in reality, it was only creating an environment for deeper issues to fester.

It's important to note that there's nothing inherently wrong with having a few drinks with family and friends on special occasions, or even just to unwind after a long day at work. However, when alcohol consumption starts to cross the line and becomes a form of self-medication, that's when problems can arise.

Alcohol can have a detrimental effect on our minds, our ability to regulate emotions, and even our internal organs. It's no secret that hangovers can be brutal, and if you're someone who drinks more than a few, you're likely all too familiar with that feeling. But is the trade-off really worth it? Is it worth feeling terrible the next day and having to explain your actions from the night before to loved ones?

At one point, I was that person. I was living hard and partying too much, and it eventually led to the loss of a few friends. I decided to make a change, and I can honestly say that I am a million times better for it. If you find yourself in a similar situation, I encourage you to take a hard look at what alcohol has really given you and consider making a change.

CBD as a Solution For some, quitting alcohol completely may not be an option. It may have become such a ingrained part of who they are and their entire social circle, that they don't know how to live without it. That's where CBD comes in.

CBD has been shown to have the ability to "facilitate Drinking Reduction" and also "may provide protection to the liver and brain, which could reduce the development and impact of alcohol-related liver disease and alcohol-related brain injury" (Source:

Whether you're a social drinker or a recovering alcoholic, CBD may be able to help reduce the damage that alcohol can do to your body and mind. In addition, studies are showing that CBD can also reduce alcohol-related liver inflammation and prevent neuronal loss by its antioxidant and immuno-modulatory properties.

The potential benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids are vast, and at Easy Day, we encourage you to educate yourself as much as possible and try it for yourself. Take control of your life and choose natural solutions for a better, healthier you.
