Living in the Gray Area


I have been an on and off drinker – often referred to as a Gray Area Drinker - functioning well in day-to-day life, yet not happy with my relationship with alcohol. I have gone for long periods of time – for example when in college and when competing in triathlons – when I barely drank at all. Then there have been times – like when I worked in the City of London for a Stockbroker, or when I was on that project in New York that strained us all to the limit and studying a law degree at the same time(!) – that alcohol has been a bigger presence. Bigger than I wanted.
