Boozeless – 

February 3, 2020 – Member Cori Clark says it’s a social gathering that allows for more authenticity “because you’re not distracted by what you’re drinking.” Clark, a recovering alcoholic, says that for her, sobriety is a matter of life and death. But for many women in the group, avoiding alcohol is more of a healthy lifestyle choice.

Yet as Clark wrote in a Chicago Tribune commentary, “If someone abstains from alcohol as a recovering addict or to improve their overall lifestyle, it’s breaking a mold shaped by a multibillion-dollar industry. We are standing up against a thing designed to control us.”

Clark joins “Chicago Tonight” in discussion, along with Daniel Fridberg, an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience at the University of Chicago.
