When I was worrying about my drinking and trying to cut back it was a really uncomfortable place to be.
While lots of people around me were drinking in the same way, I just knew that it wasn’t doing me any favours.
I was worried about my health.
I was concerned that I was starting to drink more … which meant my hangovers were worse.
But that stage of awareness was awful because the more I tried to cut back the more frustrated I became about how difficult it was.
“What is wrong with me?” I thought.
Nothing actually. It turns out alcohol is addictive and was working exactly how it was supposed to.
It’s only when I took a different approach (examining my thoughts and beliefs around alcohol) rather than using willpower alone that I changed the way I drank.
I can now take it or leave it – something I tried for years to do.
