I am thinking of signing up, but already feeling a little scared.
Contemplating change sends most people headfirst into fear, doubt and worry. You can listen to the fear and the habit and keep drinking too much, or you can take action despite being nervous, and teach your brain that fear is never a good reason to stagnate.
I want to do this, but now’s not a good time.
Okay, let’s be real. A "good" time isn’t coming. You need to learn how to say no in the real world when life is actually happening. If you can only succeed when your schedule is empty, that’s not success.
I’ve never taken a break for this long and not sure I can do it.
I get it. Every woman I’ve worked with has the same question: Can I really do this? You can, especially when you have a master life coach on your side, every step of the way.
What if I give in and drink during the break?
In this program, failure is impossible. Seriously. I’ve created a plan for every potential obstacle. And if you do drink, you never go back to square one. I’ll show you how to use the decision to drink to better understand how the habit works and what’s truly driving it.
What if I’m already not drinking. Will this program still be beneficial?
Yes! If you’re frustrated that you’re not making headway faster decreasing your desire, sometimes feel like you’re missing out, or notice yourself isolating, this program will help you change all of that.
I’ve given up alcohol for periods before and always went right back to the habit.
This happens when you’re focused primarily on saying no and not spending time to understand why you were saying yes. This work isn’t about crossing days off a calendar or willpower. It’s about getting to the root cause of the habit so that you can change it.
What if I’m not sure I want to stop drinking forever?
The vast majority of women I work with are in the same shoes. This isn’t about deciding what you want to do for the rest of your life. It’s about giving your mind and body a break so that you can take your brain off auto-pilot and make a considered choice that you feel good about.
Okay, but I really need a drink to fall asleep. I’m terrified of insomnia.
There are no two ways about it: alcohol only ever disrupts your sleep. Your body needs to re-learn good sleep hygiene, and it can’t do that when you’re drinking. I’ll show you how to deal with insomnia so that it doesn’t wreak havoc on your life.
My husband drinks and there will be alcohol in the house.
Not a problem! You don’t have to isolate yourself from alcohol in order to be successful. In fact, having alcohol around can actually help succeed. You have to learn how to say no in the real world where other people imbibe and offer you drinks.
Can I participate anonymously?
Yes! You can be as visible or hidden as you want. You’ll be able to complete all the work in the privacy of your own home on your own schedule and you can submit coaching questions anonymously. Plus there’s no social media component, so you don’t have to worry about someone stumbling on to your profile.
I’ve never been coached before. What does that look like?
Coaching is problem solving at its finest. I help you identify the blind spots and obstacles getting in the way of success and strategies to overcome them. This isn’t about delving into your past or talking about your childhood. It’s about creating simple, effective solutions that you can implement right away.
When are the live coaching calls?
Coaching calls are held at various times during the month to accommodate women in multiple time zones. But don’t worry, all calls are recorded so you can always watch a replay later.
Are there any women this program isn’t right for?
Yes. If you’re physically addicted to alcohol—in other words you experience tremors, shakes or need a drink to avoid feeling physically ill—this is not the right program for you. Please consult a medical professional before you attempt to stop drinking.
Do you offer refunds?
Nope, and here’s why. If you show up and do the work, there’s no question you’re going to change your relationship to alcohol. This will not happen if you start the program with one foot already out the door. Not offering refunds is my way of helping you go all in. When your brain starts complaining that you’re too busy, you’ll be able to remind it that you’ve already decided that you’re going to show up no matter what and not listening to its B.S. excuses.
