Sobriety seemed very restrictive to me before I quit drinking.
There was a tightness around it in my mind. All I could focus on was what I would lose.
It didn’t occur to me that quitting drinking might make my world bigger and better… but that’s exactly what happened!
In today’s video, I explain why alcohol-free living adds more to your life.
What most people get wrong
It’s natural to assume that sobriety will make your life smaller and sadder, because you’re taking something away. At least, that’s what I used to think!
But since I quit, I’ve had more fun, more free time, more joy and more amazing experiences… because I don’t drink. I can be out late and still get up the next day with a clear head, ready to take on the world.
Making your life bigger and better
Got a lot on this December? Imagine how much more space you’d have if you knew you could go out on Friday and Saturday night, have a great time and still be fresh the next morning. That is totally possible for you – you can have the best of both worlds.
I have many clients who’ve changed jobs, started new hobbies or gone back to things they used to love but had drifted away from. It’s shocking how tiny and constricted your world can become when your main focus is getting to wine o’clock.
Notice what you need to work on
If you’re thinking, “I just don’t believe I would have as good a time without alcohol – you can’t have the best of both worlds,” then that’s where your work is. That’s probably what you need some support with.
It would be a shame to carry on drinking because you have a thought error or a tangled belief about what alcohol does for you. We can unpack that – together – on my Getting Unstuck course, and help you create the bigger and better sober life you deserve.
