The words I hear most often when it comes to quitting drinking are, "I'll stop drinking when..."
When, at some unknown point in the future, everything is just right, all your ducks are in a row, the stars are aligned and your fridge is stocked with all the chocolate and AF drinks it can hold.
The trouble with waiting until everything is just right is that you are waiting, usually, a long time, to start living. I waited five years! When you wait, you are delaying peace, freedom and the life you deserve. This episode dives deep into what happens when you don't wait, how to take the leap in a way that feels good even if you are scared, and the magic that happens when you do.

Ease into Sobriety
37:07January is a really good month to ease into sobriety. And not because we have magical powers on January first that allow us to suddenly be able to build new habits, and not because everyone else is doing a dry January but because January is a nice month, I feel, to slow down, take it easy and find your way. January can feel like an awful month to do this, if you’re in the northern hemisphere, it is cold and wet, grey and miserable, you might be recovering from Christmas and feeling a bit sad to be leaving the magic and sparkle of the holidays behind. But it is for the same reason, that January can be a perfect month for your sober journey. It is about going inwards, building a strong foundation, leaning into discomfort, tuning into to what is working for us as individuals and finding our way. The only way to do that is to take your time, do the work on yourself, dig deep, and yes take it slowly and ease into things. This is how I embraced my own sober journey and I'm here to help you do the same. I share my top tips and how taking it slowly can help you to ease into your sobriety and have a joyful January.
