Take control of your desire & unlock a new you.
What You’ll Learn
How it Works
WHEN IT COMES TO DRINKING, HAVE YOU EVER ASKED YOURSELF…
Everyone else knows when to call it quits, but I’m always up for another.
Am I missing an off-switch?
I know it’s not great for my health, but I just can’t resist a glass (or three) of wine.
Why can’t I do what’s good for me?
I’m too old to be worried about my drinking and feeling bad about last night.
Will I ever figure this out?
I loved to drink.
Pouring a glass of wine was a reward after a long day.
I felt sophisticated with a fancy cocktail in my hand. Once the drinks started flowing, the fun could begin.
But drinking could also be a headache.
A big one.
Too often, I’d wake up feeling awful.
Sometimes, it was the physical toll drinking took on my body.
Sometimes, it was the emotional hangover from regretting what I did or said.
But mostly, it was wondering why after all these years I couldn’t learn my lesson.
The more I couldn’t figure out my drinking, the more I worried.
Was something wrong with me?
My life wasn’t in tatters. But reaching for a wine glass on most nights wasn’t exactly living the dream either.
I felt stuck in a love-hate relationship with alcohol.
It turns out I’d taught my brain to over-desire alcohol, and as a result I felt deprived whenever I said no.
Your brain always learns something when you say yes or no to a drink.
Just take a look
It’s a celebration!
Work was a total shit-show.
“Don’t make me drink alone!”
Parent duty never ends.
You’re sick of being perfect.
IT’S JUST TOO AWKWARD.
Life just never lets up.
It doesn’t matter if you start out with the best of intentions. If you…
It means your brain believes that drinking solves a problem.
Your desire for a drink is simply an indicator of what’s happening beneath the surface.
You helped me pinpoint the elusive part I just wasn’t seeing…
Even though it was right in front of me: anticipating and planning for “the freak out” in my brain when I said no! Now I feel so confident, capable, and determined. Truly like I got this.
Your goal is to stop fixating on what’s in your glass and focus on what’s happening in your mind.
(Because it’s the only way to break the habit.)
Learning how to do this is easier than you think.
I’ve taught thousands of people how inside my 30-day challenge.
HERE’S WHAT MAKES MY APPROACH DIFFERENT
You don’t need to commit to any long-term lifestyle changes. Instead, you’ll begin to change your drinking habits with a 30-Day Challenge.
YOU CALL THE SHOTS
Take a Break puts you in the driver’s seat. You decide how long you’ll stay. You decide the role alcohol will play in your life.
The Gift of a Clean Slate
Too much drinking in your life is like too much clutter in your home. It’s hard to make headway if you keep adding to the piles.
ALCOHOL ISN’T BAD
Demonizing booze only turns it into a forbidden fruit, making you want it more. Instead of telling yourself it’s “poison,” learn how to be curious about the relationship you developed.
Clear up the Mystery
Drinking doesn’t just happen. There’s always a decision, even if you can’t see it right now. By learning how habits form in the brain, you’ll figure out why you keep saying yes.
THERE’S NO PERFECT TIME
You can’t do this work in a vacuum or wait for a magical stress-free time with zero events, vacations, or deadlines. Lasting habit change requires practicing these skills in real life.
THIS ISN’T ABOUT SWEARING OFF ALCOHOL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
It’s about learning how to say no without forgoing connection, fun, and ease.
It’s about taking back control of your desire, rather than being at the mercy of it.
Only then can you make a clear decision about the relationship you want to have with alcohol.
I don’t feel like alcohol is the enemy…
Something I don’t have control over, or something that makes me weak. I’ve accepted that it really is neutral — that has been huge.
What will your relationship with alcohol look like in the future?
You might discover…
The point is, you can’t decide what kind of relationship you want to have with alcohol until you understand why you’re in your current one.
you’ll start with a 30-day challenge where you’ll learn how to:
Stop being at the mercy of the urge to drink by teaching your brain that unmet desire isn’t a big deal.
Take Back Control
Understand how alcohol interacts with the brain and why you reach for a drink even when it’s not serving you.
Have Your Back
Learn how to follow through on your commitment, navigate challenging events, and say no even when it feels impossible.
Feel Better Fast
Discover a foolproof way to cope with anxiety, stress, worry, and boredom, and become stronger and more resilient in the process.
From there, we unpack what no one else talks about drinking:
Develop emotional resilience so that you can break the cycle of drinking, eating, shopping, working, or anything else that distracts from how you feel.
Reconnect to your body
Repair the connection with your physical self and what you see in the mirror so that you can feel better from the inside out.
Unlock more enjoyment in your everyday life so that you stop relying on instant gratification and false pleasures to feel good.
