What does your brain think about alcohol? You'll find lots of thoughts categorizing it as good or bad, and right or wrong. Most people don't realize that labeling your drinking often works against you, especially once you understand the think, feel, act cycle.
This week, I'm talking about a concept that sets my approach apart from others when it comes to changing your drinking: alcohol is morally neutral. No matter the costs or benefits in your life, drinking isn't a vice and abstaining isn't a virtue.
Tune in as I explain how labeling alcohol as positive or negative affects how you feel and act, as well as your results, and learn how these labels often bleed into your perception of yourself as good or bad. We'll explore how moving away from this framework of right and wrong actually speeds up the process of changing the habit.
