Also, don't forget, alcohol is a tricky trickster. It presents itself as a social lubricant, but it's not. And it's not just me saying that. Here's Catharine Fairbairn and Michael Sayette from the University of Pittsburgh's Psychology Department: `The experimental literature examining alcohol's effects within a social context reveals that alcohol does not consistently enhance social-emotional experience. Alcohol's effects within a social context are largely explained by its tendency to free individuals from preoccupation with social rejection, sedating their limbic and cortical regions, and allowing them to perceive social rewards (even if this is not factual).

This real confidence is something many people experience only after they quit drinking. Here are a few quotes taken from the hundreds of Sober Stories I've published at livingsober. Kerry: `I always thought I was confident, but I had no real idea how much further from the truth that really was. I only thought I was confident because I was drinking.

E motional intelligence has grown in importance over the years, especially when it comes to the workplace. Just because you walk into your workplace it does not mean that all your emotions that you were feeling that day gets automatically put away. Although it often appears that way to most people, in reality, emotions are always existent in the workplace but they are normally kept in check in order to remain professional. People often pretend that they do not have emotions during work hours to avoid appearing unprofessional.

Now, not everyone needs to quit drinking completely and get sober in order to accept who they are authentically and find their true courage. And not everyone is a through-and-through introvert who is only ever happy spending time with small groups or alone. In actual fact, Nimmo says a lot of people are a bit of both--extraverted in one context and introverted in another--and the goal is to be comfortable with both sides of yourself. That is, being able to be with people socially and also be relaxed when you're on your own, not craving attention or validation from outside sources.
