Welcome to the 15th episode of the Take a Break from Drinking podcast.
First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for being so engaged with the show! I’ve received a lot of emails from you with feedback and questions.
On this week’s episode, I’m excited to answer one of those listener questions about “falling off the wagon.”
Personally, I find the idea of a "wagon" misleading. Think about it: whether you're "on the wagon" or telling yourself you "fell off the wagon" the concept suggests that you're not the one calling the shots when it comes to your commitment.
In order to really get this, you need to understand the two simple reasons why you drink in the first place. Once you do, you'll see how these reasons are at odds with this idea of “being on" or "off the wagon.”
Listen in to find out why I believe letting go of the concept of being on or off "the wagon" is crucial if you want to stick with your commitment.
