Your brain loves being right. It loves believing the same thoughts over and over again. There's a good reason for this: the think-feel-act cycle is self-reinforcing. The cycle creates evidence to support what you already believe. Unless you understand how this all works, changing your habits will be difficult.
If you're going to change your drinking, you'll need to disprove the thoughts holding you back: I'm no fun without a drink... this party won't be boring without alcohol... everyone is going to make a big deal if I turn down a glass of wine.
Join me this week as I show you how to create new evidence when it comes to your relationship to alcohol and your ability to successfully take a break. This work will require you to challenge your thoughts, but it's vital to successfully changing the habit.
