The Journey

Member Benefits

You’ve seen a glimmer of what’s possible…

The habit is finally starting to make sense…

But you still blame yourself & think your brain is the problem.

You’ve got the tools you need to change…

Yet you’re not consistent with saying no or the daily practice.

This work has opened your eyes…

Except you’re intimidated by all there is to “fix.”

You’ve found an approach that makes sense.

All you need to do now is learn how to transform knowledge into know-how.

This is where most people get tripped up.

Assuming the journey should be effortless and easy.
Not creating space to stumble or make mistakes.
Convinced the past is doomed to repeat itself.
Impatient to be at the finish line already.

The result? Giving up too soon before change can happen.

The secret to permanently changing your drinking is to keep showing up.

Habits don’t just magically change without regular practice.

That doesn’t mean you need to spend hours and hours rewiring your brain.

You just need to commit to small changes every day.

So What Keeps Getting in the Way?


You started out strong, but before you knew it there were a bunch of reasons why change was too hard, this approach wouldn’t work, and your motivation went right out the window.


So you skipped a day. No big deal, right? Except that one day turned into two and now an entire week has gone by and you don’t know how to get back on track.

Winging It

You knew the visit/party/date was going to be challenging to say no, but you figured you could handle it. Then before you knew it, you had fallen right back into the habit.

Bumps in the Road

This time you swore you were all in, but you keep slipping up. You broke your promise, are convinced you wasted your money, and now are deep in a shame spiral.

I don't feel better yet!

You wanted to feel better, but your sleep is messed up, you’ve replaced drinking with eating, and now you feel overwhelmed by everything you need to “fix” about yourself.

Changing your relationship with alcohol requires exercising your your mind.

You need to learn how to keep showing up even when you’re tired, overwhelmed or simply don’t feel like it.

Just like working out a couple times a year won’t keep you in shape, allowing your urges a handful of times won’t change your desire.

Your ability to permanently change your relationship with alcohol has nothing to do with…

If you’ve been perfect since you started.
How many times you drank during the challenge.
If you hit the reset button every Monday.
Whether or not you quit halfway through or never got past Day 1.

The only thing that matters is how you answer this question…

You must trust yourself and your ability to change.

If you’re doubtful, anxious, or simply defeated please don’t ignore these feelings.

They are vital clues about how your brain is thinking about the habit.

You’ll slip back into old habits if you keep repeating old thought patterns.

that’s why I created the…
