I’m about to share something a bit controversial, but true. And if there’s one thing you can ALWAYS count on from me, it’s that I’ll tell you the truth NO MATTER WHAT.
So, let’s get real. This isn’t the first program you’ve tried, is it?
Most programs unknowingly set you up for failure because they STOP with the behavior. They measure success by the absence of drinking, no matter how strong your desire for it might still be.
As long as you stop drinking, it’s considered a win … even if you feel miserable, deprived, and are barely hanging on by a thread every single day.
That means the only thing standing between your success and failure is willpower or self-control. But that’s not enough.
Let me ask you something – has willpower or self-control ever failed you? It failed me. EVERY. TIME.
See, I tried it all too, but it always felt wrong to me.
I’d try to stop drinking, but I was never happy about it. In fact, it felt like even though I wasn’t physically drinking, I was still consumed by alcohol.
It still controlled my thoughts and emotions. It felt like a living hell.
Mentally, I spent way more time and energy NOT doing it than I ever did physically drinking. It never felt like freedom.
And no wonder. My willpower was inconsistent, and my self-control never seemed to be there the moment I needed it most.
And yet, according to most programs, I was still considered a SUCCESS if my outward behavior stopped. That’s where those programs stop - with behavior.
It’s no surprise I couldn’t succeed.
Those other programs were missing the point. They were starting in the WRONG place.
I could do my best to change my behavior, but unless I FIRST changed my beliefs about alcohol and lost the desire to drink, I was destined to feel frustrated and unhappy.
I knew the only way I was going to actually enjoy my life without alcohol …
… instead of feeling deprived and like I was missing out …
… was if I could somehow change the way I thought and felt about alcohol and made it insignificant in my life.
So I dug deep into the science behind the connections between thought, emotion and behavior, and I did it.
