This week, we’re talking about the most requested topic by our listeners thus far – rebellion. Rebellion is the idea that no one can tell you what to do when it comes to your drinking – whether it’s taking a break, slowing down, or sitting a night out – not even you.
This rebellion in the face of any rule or restriction manifests itself in beliefs that you have a right to drink and get drunk if you want to and maybe even that you somehow “earned” this right.
Join us on this episode as we pull back the curtain on where your rebellion around drinking comes from and why it’s crucial to understand this when working on changing your habits. We also explore how using certain language can increase your desire to drink and how to begin reducing your unconsciously created rebellion that's getting in the way of taking a break.
