Sauvignon Blanc and Glass Ceilings
The big city can be a very exciting place to manifest, to create and give our gift to the world… However for many who are socially conditioned, parentally conditioned, educationally de-natured and then tossed onto a ladder that pleases everybody else; only to find several years later that precious life was squandered in an unconscious daily cycle of wake-commute- hurry-roleplay-commute-sauvignon-blanc-feelbad-sleep…
AND you were climbing the wrong ladder after all, still mostly pleasing the expectations of others and all along utterly ignoring your true self. A Self that eventually gets heard by screaming HELP loud enough that you start to do something about your dire state of affairs called life. Is that what we are here for?
What about those dreams you have?
As if we need a government study to tell Women the obvious; A recent study in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine has found High-achieving female executives are turning to the bottle because of growing frustration about the "glass ceiling" which they feel is holding back their careers. The study found that women in senior positions were more likely to have a drink problem than their male peers and were turning to the bottle far more often than less successful women. It also found that women in highly paid, highly pressured jobs were three times more likely to be alcohol dependent than those in the lowest-grade jobs. But men's vulnerability to drinking did not alter as they climbed up the career ladder. Lack of scope for making decisions was also associated with problem drinking in women, despite the apparent conflict with the pattern observed in female executives. It could be to do with struggling against the glass ceiling; They have to put so much effort into getting to the top of the pile that it makes life more stressful. Women who are high-flyers, skilled, competent and educated, yet who feel that alcohol is the way to deal with stress do seem to be aware of the downside.
