The Art and Science of Creating Alcohol Free Lives

I SMOKED

I DRANK , a lot

I STRUGGLED

The alcohol struggle is real! I drank everyday. I didn't know a life without alcohol. It felt impossible to have an alcohol free Life. I have felt it. I know able the alcohol cycle. 

Signed up for the Alcohol Experiment LIVE and it changed my life. 
I knew I can not moderate my drinking.
I gradually made the right changes to my drinking in This Naked Mind's Intensive Program. 

I kept walking and healing but I was still holding the crutch of  "Just One" glass of wine.  
 
Annie Grace and Scott Pinyard coached me through the last belief of that thought of "Just One Glass" of wine.
 
Now, I am strong enough to walk on my own. I have made the transformation into a non-drinker.
A 100% confident NON-DRINKER.
A person that can drink if I want to, I just don't want to drink anymore. 
&
I am very passionate to help other people and here to lend my hand so you can
get off the alcohol rollercoaster ride. (it's making you sick, get off the ride)

I CHANGED 
I DRANK, I SMOKED, I STRUGGLED, AND I CHANGED. 
I can't believe it is true I quit drinking. 

If you asked me five years, if I would be able to quit drinking. There was no way. "Give me a glass of white wine, leave the bottle, and shut up."

Some of my alcohol conditioning has been formed since I was a little girl growing up in a steakhouse, with lots of wine. I was taught wine was about culture, people, and community. That might be true for some but those beliefs no longer serve who I was as a person. An adult woman that has the power to choose how I live. What I put into my body. How I spend my time.  

I have dual Bachelorette Degrees from Indiana University in Art History and Studio Art. I love to sew. Quilting. Paint.

I was suffering in my own personal hell of alcohol. I wanted to quit drinking but did not know how. Alcohol was my life, my friend. I didn't know any other way. I didn't know life without alcohol.  

I spent my days stuck in past pains and staying stuck there in the bottle. Coping with my world with alcohol. It was not until I actually stopped drinking was able to move past these emotions. Yes, at one time in my life alcohol was serving me, helped me blackout drunk to my pains, I thought alcohol was actually the safest thing for me to get through the pain. I don't do pills. I drank a bottle of vodka. 

But It is true I did quit drinking. I realized and accepted the truth of what alcohol really does to me, my body, and it's effects on my life in general. 


I WAS SUFFERING...

 I was extremely over weight and needed to stop drinking. I drank two to three bottles of wine a night.  I was an extreme alcohol abuser. I couldn't get passed day 4 without drinking. I hadn't been alcohol free for 30 days since Junior High without medicine.  I  tried to quit dinking alcohol with naltrexone, vitriol shots, AA, church, and therapy, nothing worked. I was coping with my emotions with alcohol. What I needed was self- compassion. 

I DISCOVERED...

I discovered the work of This Naked Mind.  It wasn't until I signed up for the July, 2019 LIVE. I was amazed I made it through the 30 days. A This Naked Mind Intensive Graduate.  I had data points and years of data points of trying to quit alcohol.

I WANTED IT...

I wanted to quit and I was ready to quit drinking alcohol. I had hiatus hernia and my esophagus was starting to show signs of pre- cancerous cells. I wound up in the ICU after the hernia surgery complication.  NO people you do not need a serious health scare to quit drinking.  I needed This Naked Mind to teach me how to get control of alcohol. Alcohol had control over me.

I  EXPERIENCED... 

I started to experience new and old alcohol free things. Everything felt new and amazing.  I stopped letting alcohol consume my thoughts everyday.  I journaled before and after events I would normally drink at. 

I DID THE WORK 

I did the work to start thinking differently and changed the stories I was telling myself. Self awareness become my navigation to understanding my feeling., emotions, and craving.  I was amazed when I actual found the work to do on quitting drinking. 

I SURVIVED and changed

The Neuroplasicity of  is scientific proof that human beings are capable of changing. A person can change even in the midst of chaos, a broken hearted,. I started a meditation practice. 

I WANT TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE

I remember what it felt like. Waking up every day, wish and praying I could change my drinking habits. I have a strong desire to help people suffering from the pulls of alcohol abuse disorders. 

By Amazing GRACE, 
I Found Freedom from Alcohol!

I took my POWER back from alcohol and started to CONTROL alcohol. 


Is Alcohol Genetic? 
This is a picture from a special trip I made to my Croatian vineyard homeland. My grandmother immigrated to American to Chicago in the early 1900's. Traveling to Croatia was the most amazing experience of my life. I wouldn't change my vineyard roots for anything in the world. 
❤️
 It is so beautiful there.

I always thought that was why it was so hard for me to quit drinking or even control my drinking. I thought alcohol was in my genes. That is what is so amazing about This Naked Mind addresses this topic. And then was able to study the deep conditioning that was passed down for generations. This Naked Mind finally answered my question, Do I have a wine in my genes?

There is not a known genetic competent to alcohol abuse. Alcohol dependency is not in our DNA. But some days it sure feels like it. I remember spending all day thinking that wine was a part of who I am. How white wine ran in my blood. How I felt normalized by wine. Wine was as common in my house as water. The only time wine was in my heart and ran in my bloodstream was when I drank it, not in my genes. All that was based on past experiences and conditioning, Thinking white wine ran in my blood was an alcohol belief. 

Does me quit drinking make me stop loving my family or my roots. NO. I love and appreciate them more now! Drinking wine at a vineyard was a very special time. It was all the other nights drinking that was a problem. If I ever get to travel back to the vineyard, that will be the only time, I will every allow myself to drink. But the thing is I don't want to drink, I want to remember the time spent with family and meet new friends.  That is the beauty of This Naked Mind Method, I can drink if I want to but I end up not wanting to drink. I changed my beliefs around alcohol. I did not change my love for the special stories of my family. It is still special.

I CHANGED & NOW, I COACH
I DRANK, I SMOKED, I STRUGGLED, AND I CHANGED. 
I can't believe it is true I quit drinking. 
 
If you asked me five years ago, if I would be able to quit drinking. There was no way. "Give me a glass of white wine, leave the bottle, and shut up."
 
Some of my alcohol conditioning had been formed since childhood growing up in a steakhouse, surrounded with lots of beer and wine. I was taught at a young age that wine was important to culture, people, and community. That might be true for some people but those beliefs were no longer serving who I was as a person. An adult woman that has the power to choose how I live. What I put into my body. How I spend my time. I did not want alcohol to be a part of my life anymore. I made it my goal to quit drinking by age 40 and I have! It wasn't easy. 
 
Yes, I have had some really good memories with people drinking. Alcohol use to be fun until it became my EVERYTHING. It became hard to disguise between drinking in the fun times with family and friends to drinking every night and gaining weight. 
 
I was suffering in my own personal hell of alcohol. I wanted to quit drinking but did not know how. Alcohol was my life, my friend, and the best coping mechanism. I didn't know any other way. Sometimes, I thought alcohol was the safest way through my problems because that is what I knew. I didn't know life without alcohol.

Alcohol Never Made Me More CREATIVE.

Taking a break from alcohol made me more creative than ever. Drinking didn't make me more creative. I just got sloppy with my work and inhibited in caring about precious details. Wine didn't didn't help me sew. It created a bunch of Works -In - Progress. 
Start looking what projects can you finish? 

NOW, I can spend my money on more fabric instead of wine! WIN WIN!
