Do you have a love / hate relationship with drinking?
- After a busy day you relax with a drink or two.
- Going out invariably involves drinking.
- Holidays, parties and celebrations are all reasons to open a bottle of your favourite tipple.
But there’s also a side you hate.
- Interrupted sleep
- Fragmented memories after a big night
- Lack of energy
- Impact on your mood
My love / hate relationship with drinking went on for years.
I didn’t want to stop drinking as I thought that was a drastic measure and I certainly wasn’t at the stage where I needed to ‘sober up’, yet I wasn’t happy with the nasty side effects of alcohol.
So what’s the solution?
The way I changed my love / hate relationship with alcohol was firstly to realise that it was even going on.
I then got curious.
“I’m a smart woman who has control over all other areas of my life,” I thought.
“Why can’t I control my drinking?”
It was only when I read This Naked Mind by Annie Grace that I started to question the role drinking was playing in my life.
I discovered why it was so hard for me to moderate and it wasn’t because I was weak willed.
I then learned to question my long-held beliefs about drinking.
The entire process was empowering and helped me to gain back control over my drinking rather than feeling like I had lost control.
It was so life changing that I decided to train as a This Naked Mind certified coach and now work with people who are struggling with their own love / hate relationship with drinking to help them gain back control.
