This week on the Take a Break podcast, I'm discussing permission-giving thoughts, how they fuel the habit of drinking, and the most common one, "I deserve it."
Past results are never an indicator of future success. If you keep looking backwards for evidence that you can't change your drinking, you will never be able to change the habit.
This week, we look at why you're really not enjoying yourself when you don't have a drink in your hand.
Your opinion of you should be your number one priority. When you focus on what others think, it will keep you stuck and unable to change the habits that aren't serving you.
Discover an alternative to the common belief that we should remove all alcohol from our environment to successfully take a break from drinking.
Most people are conditioned to talk about overdrinking solely through the labels “alcoholic,” “sober,” or “recovered.” These labels don't capture the varying degrees of struggle or the nature of how habits work. Listen to the benefits of describing the habit rather than labeling the person when it comes to changing your drinking.
Find out why you’re still not taking action when it comes to changing your drinking.
Why it helps to have a compelling reason if you want to take a break, how to find one, and how to avoid the most common pitfalls and misconceptions when using a compelling reason to motivate change.
Why alcohol and food are NOT your friends and how that thinking is holding you back from creating meaningful change in your life.
