The term gray area drinking has been around since *2011 and describes the area between socially drinking and severely abusing. There have been numerous articles and publications about the term, including the blog by GrayTonic titled, What is Gray Area Drinking?
The purpose and mission haven’t changed since September 2018 when Kari Schwear, Founder of GrayTonic and Question the Drink, began her quest to share this term with the world.
That statement is:
The mission of Question the Drink® is to create awareness and acceptance to those questioning their relationship with alcohol through education and support while providing the EMPOWERMENT needed to make healthy decisions.
Question the Drink® is a battle cry for others to raise their hand and not be afraid of asking questions regarding their drinking. It’s an invitation to move out of the gray area.
For gray area drinkers, it’s a choice to drink.
The question now is, what are you choosing?
