Alcohol is such a blunt tool.
If you’re drinking to take the edge off the day, you’re not just numbing out from the stuff you’re trying to avoid. You end up taking the shine off a lot of the good stuff too.
You numb the lows and the highs.
That means missing out on many of life’s simple pleasures… which is exactly what this week’s video is all about.
The subtle stuff you’re missing
When alcohol is driving a wrecking ball through your life, its impact is obvious. What I’m talking about here are the subtle consequences of numbing out a bit, quite a lot of the time. Feeling just a bit bad, a bit trapped and a bit obsessed with where your next drink is coming from.
In the video, I describe the pleasure of an alcohol-free holiday and appreciating the tiny things – from swimming in the sea, to eating great ice cream and enjoying the views. When I was drinking, I never got excited about little things like that, because alcohol stole so much of my attention.
The little things are the big things
Perhaps you’ve noticed that you never read in the evenings these days, because it’s too hard to concentrate after a few drinks? Maybe you don’t appreciate great food in quite the same way, because your focus is on the wine instead? What are the little things that you’re missing out on?
