Embracing a life of sobriety can feel like too big a step. Maybe not drinking tonight is ok, but forever? That’s too long…
But you know that whenever you drink, you regret it. You feel like crap when you wake up. You lie in bed scared to look at your phone in case you did, said or posted something you’re going to regret. You wonder if you pissed any of your friends off this time… you can’t remember doing it, but is that because you didn’t do it… or because it was so awful your brain isn’t letting you remember?
And what time did you get to bed? Did you actually sleep? You feel like you need another night’s sleep, but the alarm clock insists it’s time to wake up. Not that you’re going to be much use in work anyway. Again!
You were only going to have one glass …. When is it ever one glass?
So you promise yourself, you won’t drink tonight.
You should be able to manage that…
But forever? That’s still too long.
But what if forever is just one ‘tonight’ at a time.
And what if you had a reason to stay sober that wasn’t just based on fear that you might actually be drinking yourself to an early grave?
What if not drinking could be something you could enjoy 🤯?
Is that even possible?
How can you have fun without booze? How can you cope with those shitty days when everything feels JUST TOO HARD?
What if you could find PEACE and joy in sobriety, so you didn’t even need the wine to enjoy your life?
Imagine if you could enjoy your nights out and your time with friends, and fully experience it all.
As Brene Brown tells us, when you numb the painful feelings, you also numb the good. So, taking booze out of the equation will amplify the good feelings. You’ll remember your good times. You won’t regret the decisions the booze brain makes. You’ll experience the moment fully, completely.
And those painful feelings? They don’t go away when you numb them. They just demand more numbing.
Imagine if you could find ways to deal with them that allow you to learn from, and solve the problems that cause the painful emotions. Rather than numbing out, you face things head-on, finding solutions and insights that allow you to move forward in life.
Imagine waking up in the morning with clear memories, energy, and no regrets.
Imagine waking up in the morning feeling good about yourself.
I can promise you, it is possible.
And in this 8 week coaching experience, I will help you begin to find it.
You’ll find PEACE through
I know it’s possible, because I’ve been there.
If you’d told me 10 years ago that I would be a happy, joyful sober woman with 9 years of sobriety under my belt, I’d have laughed in your face, then poured a large glass of wine to calm my anxiety at the thought of it.
But that glass of wine wouldn’t have really calmed the anxiety. It would have anaesthetised it so I couldn’t feel it. It would have made it so much worse. And, of course, it wouldn’t have been the only glass.
Learning to be sober came gradually to me as I learned to relax, let go, and heal my pain through Yoga teacher training.
I had a purpose for staying sober. I wanted to experience the good feelings that Yoga could give me. And hangovers and regret got in the way of that.
I discovered how to manage my restless energy, as well as finding things that energised me and gave me true joy
A growing awareness of my patterns, triggers and self. I learned who I truly am under the booze mask.
I learned how to create meaningful connection with myself, the people around me, and the world I live in.
And I discovered practices that could help me be present to my emotions, rather than fearing and numbing them.
9 years after my final glass of wine, I still experience pain. I have had huge loss, grief, heartbreak, stress, depression, fear, anger and frustration in the past 9 years. Pain I would have definitely wanted to numb with wine before I got sober.
But I also have joy, self respect, energy, presence, connection, inner peace and love that wouldn’t have been possible for me 10 years ago.
I wouldn’t trade that for all the wine in the world!
