what happens before (like, before we quit)

I write a lot of emails for folks who have quit drinking and want support. I record audios, short and long. I talk about prelapse and treats and tools.

What I don’t often talk about is what happens before. Before we quit.
How do we sort through the thinking … what do we do with thoughts of moderation or counting days.

and so often, the ‘drink now’ voice is absolutely screamingly-loud, so it drowns out the real you in there … you know, the real you who signed up to get sober-support emails. the real you who knows that there’s something not-quite-right about your relationship with alcohol.

i’m happy to say that i have a 5-part Exit the booze elevator so you can Exist audio series. All you have to do is sign up and you’ll get audio #1 right away.

thanks to donations, three-quarters of the price has been covered for you, so this new series of audios is $10 US. one payment. not recurring. nothing weird. just 5 audios for you. yes, that’s my voice. you’ll hear me — talking directly to you.

Sign up here.

In these audios, I will talk about getting started, how to THINK about the idea of quitting drinking, advice on tools and supports, and we’ll talk about how to get ready to begin.

If booze is an elevator that only goes down, it’s time to find the exit.

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012
