"There is not a drop or a vat of alcohol that will take away work stress."

Work stress and unfulfillment are leading causes of women's drinking later in life.

I worked in an industry for decades, and I felt like I had to drink through the weekends and evenings to cope.

When we are barely getting through the day, it becomes harder to cope with anything, let alone a job that causes us anxiety.

But does alcohol help anxiety or add to it? You know what I say if you've listened to the podcast: anxiety + alcohol = more anxiety.

No job or boss, or co-worker on the planet is worth drinking over, my friend.


You'll hear: 

  • How I used alcohol for decades to cope with work stress and anxiety 
  • About my first panic attack at 27ish inside an office I was working in 
  • What happened after the panic attack with my self-image and drinking 
  • How throughout the years, my work changed, but my drinking kicked up 
  • How to practice different techniques to help you unwind without drinking

I'm Lori Massicot, the host of To 50 and Beyond. 

I started the podcast in 2018 with a mission to talk about aging and sobriety and share stories of hope and inspiration in midlife and beyond. 

My continued mission is to bring women over 40 together over topics that don't usually get discussed aloud to break through the shame and stigma that holds us back from being, doing, and experiencing BETTER.

It's never too late to travel another path and have fun along the way. 

I know you're ready to ROCK your very best self To 50 and Beyond!
