It’s wonderful. Going downhill on those fast ski’s, and drinking large glasses of beer in the sun. For all the ski-lovers among us: it’s the ultimate holiday feeling. After a long day of skiing and enjoying the view, you walk straight into the bar to dance all evening long. “Hey, wir wollen die eisbären sehen”, is what everyone keeps singing. But you don’t want to see a polar bear (eisbären), you want to see your baby!
An alcohol-free ski trip
Since you know you´re pregnant, you don´t feel like drinking anymore. While sitting in the cold snow and feeling the heat of the sun burn on your skin, you – for the first time since your pregnancy – feel like having a beer again. It’s the atmosphere. Luckily you stay strong and order an Apfelschorle again. But that’s not necessary; it’s 2019! There are so many delicious alcohol-free beers, all equally tasty. And guess what? Your brain won’t notice any difference between beer with or without alcohol, because the taste of beer alone is enough to activate the rewarding system in the brain. Of course you’re not going to get drunk, but you will definitely gain great feelings by drinking alcohol-free beers. A little piece of advice: are you in a big group? Just to be sure, order your own beers, so you’ll know you have the right one!
