Ask the Coach: How Do I Know If I Have a Problem with Alcohol?

 

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Are you a gray-area drinker? Join the club! Over 80% of North Americans drink and about 70% of them wish they drank less.

How do you know when it’s time to make a change? 

I explore this question in today’s episode, highlighting some of the signs that it may be time to start exploring your relationship with alcohol. 

I also talk about the one question we ask ourselves that doesn't really matter, and the one we need to be asking ourselves more often.

Finally, I give listeners a jumping-off point for starting to dig into their own relationship with alcohol with a simple coaching exercise.

Wish you drank a bit less? There's no need to commit to anything more than getting a little curious. I'd suggest you start by digging into your own beliefs around alcohol with  my 3 FREE alcohol belief-busting videos at www.wendymccallum.com/myths

Jessica Landon: Laughter, Gratitude & Connection in Women’s Recovery

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Jessica Landon was a successful Hollywood actress living a charmed & glamorous life, but it all fell apart when she spiraled into full-blown alcoholism at age 26 which led to jail, then living on the streets, weighing just 78 pounds. She lost it all, but somehow, after 9 trips to rehab, she found the will to leave alcohol behind and build a life she didn't need to escape from. 

She now lives in Los Angeles with her fiancee and beautiful baby boy, and is an advocate and coach for moms in recovery.

Jess shares her powerful story with raw honesty, including the role that laughter, gratitude, and connection played in her own recovery.

Jessica and I discuss gray-area drinking, the sober curious movement, mommy wine culture, and the critical importance of community and connection for women when it comes to healing and recovery.

In this special episode, guest host Julie Lesperance takes the reins to interview me about my personal alcohol story on my 3-year anniversary of living alcohol-free. I explain how and why my relationship with wine changed over the course of my life, when and why I started to question it, and how I found freedom and went on to become a Certified Naked Mind Coach. 

If you think you’re the only one questioning your relationship with alcohol, you’re not. If you’re thinking things aren’t “bad enough” to make a change, you’re wrong. 

"Grey-area drinking" exists on a huge spectrum. You don't need to objectively have " a problem", be an "alcoholic" or hit a "rock bottom" to change your habits. The truth is: you simply don't HAVE to drink (or drink as much), and it's 100% up to you! (Boy, was it ever liberating when I realized that!)
