PRIVATE COACHING TO

Quit Drinking

CREATE A LIFE YOU LOVE WITHOUT ALCOHOL

Why Dive In

You deserve a life you love.

You work hard every day to accomplish a lot. You’re smart, capable, and productive. 

You take care of people.

You manage work deadlines and finances, business trips and family vacations, school conferences and sports practices. 

OH, AND YOU’RE PROBABLY DRINKING TOO MUCH.   

Drinking is your favorite way to relax after a long day, but waking up at 3 am with anxiety is getting old, and starting work with a hangover is awful.

If you drink more (or more often) than you want to, if you create rules for yourself about when or how much you’ll drink and can’t stick to them, if reaching for wine each night is getting in the way of living your best life—you’re not alone.

Trying to cut back on your drinking alone is hard.

You need support. And a road map.

This is for you if…

E

You want a private, empowering, personalized and rewarding plan to stop drinking that will meet you where you are and provide the resources, tools and support to get you where you want to go.

E

You’re a busy woman who has realized that drinking isn’t working in your life anymore, have tried to moderate in the past and haven’t been successful.

E

You’re excited to see how amazing you can feel and how awesome life can be after 100 days without alcohol.

E

You’re looking for positive and confidential support to quit drinking with a clear road map for success and defined milestones along the way.

E

You’re not into 12-step programs, meetings, sponsors, labeling yourself as an alcoholic (you don’t need to and it doesn’t matter) or saying you’re powerless over alcohol.

      Day 50! I’d say this is the longest I’ve ever gone without drinking, aside from my pregnancies, but I’m not sure even that’s entirely true. 

      When I was pregnant I’d always have a taste of my husband’s wine, and toward the end, an entire (small) glass.

      Now I’ve gone 50 days completely alcohol-free. 

      Here’s what’s amazing: It does not feel like deprivation. 

      For the first time deciding not to drink doesn’t feel like a punishment or that I’m having to turn my back on something good; this feels like taking a deliberate, enthusiastic step toward something positive.

      Don’t get me wrong. There are nights when I’m crazy stressed, tired, pissed, or <insert strong emotion here>, and for a split second, a cold glass of numbing agent sounds tempting. 

      But I’m getting better at noticing those triggers and allowing myself to feel the negative feelings, knowing that this too shall pass…and it always does.

      I am so glad I made the decision to work with you as my coach Casey!

      I’m feeling grateful this morning for all the ways you have helped me. 

      Here are a few of them: 

      1. You validate that my feelings are warranted and real
      2. You listen intently to me (and don’t just hear me) 
      3. You encouraged me to get started, to keep going, and now to keep doing what I’m doing
      4. You celebrate my milestones (even when I forget!) – and encourage me to mark my successes with tangible items and/or pleasures
      5. You’ve given me actionable advice that WORKS (starting with the afternoon snack & alt bevs, and now putting exercise on my calendar)
      6. You provide great recommendations for quit lit, articles, and podcasts (including your own!)
      7. You’ve shared your perspective and anecdotes from your own sobriety journey
      8. You remind me how far I’ve come from Day 1 
      9. You remind me to prioritize self care, starting with a morning plan
      10. You help me see the forest for the trees and not get ahead of myself, providing big-picture context and reassurance that I’m “right on schedule”

      ….And a billion other ways I have yet to realize. You are amazing!!!

      I’ve never felt more in control of my life.

      I finally feel free from the shame and disappointment in myself, the procrastination and wishful thinking. 

      Thank you all for your support Casey!  

      – Lauren, Illinois, (Now on Day 110+)

      Day 64!!!

      I started working with Casey on Day 11 and it’s made ALL the difference (after more failed attempts than I can say)

      When I was trying to stop drinking before, accountability from friends and my husband faded quickly when they decided to go back to drinking.

      Casey has been the rock I’ve needed! ❤️ 

      Kim, North Carolina (Now on Day 75+)

      Day 30!

      I’m still shocked that I have pulled this many days together.

      It’s hard to believe how much has changed in just a few weeks. 

      In the first week I was anxious about not drinking, about how to get through the weekend and about my job. 

      I felt sick and exhausted just by getting up, going to work and not drinking. 

      But the days actually feel easy now.

      • I feel good. I’m happy and productive.
      • I had a great hike with my dog last night and I got a lot of work done during the day.
      • I am KILLING IT at work. 
      • I used to dread looking at my schedule and I don’t anymore.
      • I’m less anxious than I used to be, about everything from opening my mail to meetings with my boss to kicking off new projects at work. 

      What began as boring days (not drinking) are beginning to evolve into simpler days – which is actually a pleasant balance to the madness I’m used to.  

      And I’m amazed at the difference I already see in my body after just a month. 

      • My stomach isn’t bloated and I stopped taking my ulcer medication. 
      • I thought the reason I felt like garbage meant that I needed to take amino assets and supplements. But the truth is that I was just drinking way too much.
      • I used to have a pill container full of vitamins – and now I’m down to just a few.

      Not drinking is the very best thing in the whole world.

      Thank you for your support!

      Before I started working with you it was hard to get a week without drinking and now I’m looking forward to hitting 50 days!

      – Christy, Wisconsin (Now on Day 75+)

      9 months alcohol free!

      As I was reflecting on this milestone today, what strikes me most is just how big and expansive my life is now versus when I was drinking. 

      Then, my goal was to get through the day so I could get to my wine.

      I had a few close friends and a lot of acquaintances, none of whom knew what was really going on inside my head. 

      I felt very little joy (forget about hope), and felt anxious, controlling, and fearful most of the time. 

      I was happier watching trashy TV with wine in hand than connecting with my husband. 

      My kids often felt like burdens, constantly leaving little landmines I had to side step so I didn’t completely lose my shit on them. 

      I lived in a Groundhog Day of waking up hating myself, pretending pretending, pretending, and numbing it all away at the end of the day. 

      My life was getting smaller and smaller inside the bars of my own self-made prison. 

      It’s almost funny now to me that what I have described above is what I clung to so desperately, for years. 

      Because now, by finally letting it go, I have hope. I feel joy daily.

      My anxiety has improved so much it is astounding to me, and such a relief. I have an ever growing circle of true friendships centered around real things, where my insides match my outsides (for the most part). 

      Despite our growing pains (or maybe because of them), I feel truly seen by my husband for the first time since very early in our marriage. 

      There are still many “I want to pull my hair out” moments, but my kids are one of my biggest sources of joy every day, and I understand they will be one of my biggest contributions to this world that is so in need of their benevolent hearts. 

      Finally, I have all these other things I have discovered I love doing or learning about. 

      There is just so much SPACE when you’re not spending all this time drinking or recovering from drinking.

      I can’t wait to see what happens next.

      – Mary, Georgia (Now at 10+ Months)

      If you’re looking to work with a coach I’d tell you that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain; including your life back. 

      After too many day ones, coaching with Casey has been a game-changer.  

      I’ve gained so much from this experience: joy, peace, self care, self love, contentment, happiness, my health and most importantly, sobriety!  

      Casey provides input, guidance, support, accountability. 

      She speaks from experience, knows how to phrase things in a different light that makes so much sense, and is able to turn my negative self talk into something positive.  

      She’s available and always holding space for me when I need it the most.  

      Casey has helped me shift my thinking and connect the dots.

      I’m growing and becoming a better version of myself.

      My husband’s even told me he notices the positive differences in me and the benefits of the work I’m doing.

      Our coaching sessions are powerful. I think differently and I treat myself differently.

      I would recommend working with Casey in a heartbeat!  

      – Kathy, Washington, Day 455+

      I hit Day 22 today! Yay!!!!

      Last night my husband asked me how I was doing with all of this “not drinking stuff”, how I was feeling, and what good things are happening. 

      I told him waking up not hating myself for drinking too much is wonderful.

      My depression and anxiety have lifted and I am really proud of myself. I have my self respect back.

      I’m so much more productive at work – I don’t feel fatigued or brain foggy even after working all day. 

      My husband said that I am much more calm and steady. He said he recognizes that my anxiety has lessened. He told me that he can see that things don’t bog me down as much. 

      He told me that my eyes are brighter and he sees me blossoming as a bright person again – that I just seem to have some much more life in me.

      Working with Casey has been a really great experience.

      Her technique and approach to quitting drinking absolutely works if someone really wants to stop.

      I’m so glad I reached out for help.

      – Jennifer, (Now ONE YEAR +)

      ​It’s been 120 days since I quit drinking and I wouldn’t be here without my coaching work with Casey! 

      Before I quit drinking I felt frustrated and overwhelmed.

      I was living with a lot of fear and anxiety and felt like I couldn’t handle everything going on in my life, with my work, and with my family’s busy schedule. 

      I’d been on a self-help journey for 10 years, but it wasn’t until I quit drinking that I was actually clear enough to follow through with things.

      Now I’m finally able to do all the things I’ve always wanted to do, like being there for my girls, financial planning, medical appointments, and getting in my workouts and exercise.

      It’s like there is a clarity in me that ​​wasn’t before. 

      This work takes time, and I’m still figuring out how to live the life I don’t want to escape from, how to fill my time with things I value, and not listen to old messages & negative patterns in my head.

      But I feel like I can handle things now. 

      I’m finally the person who can work on stuff that makes me feel better physically and mentally and actually believe that I am doing it for me.

      I haven’t been in that head space for a long time.

      I’m so grateful to have found Casey as a coach, for her support and guidance and knowing that she’s there for me when I need her.​  

      – Ali, Missouri, (Now ONE YEAR +)

      ONE WHOLE YEAR!

      I truly would not be celebrating a year without wine if it were not for Casey. 

      Working with Casey is the best gift I have ever given myself, the best chance I ever took to make myself a better person, to get out of my miserable rut – the cycle of work – take care of family – wine – promise yourself you will quit – can’t – then repeat. 

      Casey helped me break that cycle, first by getting through the first 30 days just curled in bed every night ordering take out and watching TV with the kids, assuring me that was OK, to getting through every holiday, soccer trip, beach vacations with the in-laws, flying, a hysterectomy, my daughters surgery, pandemics, homeschooling and all of it. 

      Casey walked me through creating a life I don’t resent or want to escape from every night, changed the patterns of rewarding myself with wine to rewarding myself in other ways I had forgotten or never knew I liked. 

      And Casey gave me tools- like planning ahead for how I was going to take things slow and reward myself along the way when something I knew would be a trigger was coming up. 

      And she was always there for me when life surprised me and I needed someone to help me re-frame or rethink something, or get through a bout of anxiety.

      Like I called her crying from Minneapolis once after a terrible flight, and I had to walk past the bright wine bar at the hotel reception, and locked myself in the bathroom so my daughter wouldn’t hear, and thanks to her support I didn’t drink that night. 

      Casey gently encouraged me to look at and move out of the unhealthy emotional patterns I had that were no longer serving me and contributing to my overdrinking. 

      Doing that work was so empowering, and I felt like I was finally growing again as a 45 year old.

      I had my physical recently and, since quitting drinking, I am down 30 lbs, from 170 to 140, my cholesterol and blood work and liver enzymes are all better this year and in normal healthy ranges. 

      I didn’t diet, I just stopped drinking wine at night and it changed my life. 

      I can’t even overstate how much better I feel about myself every single morning. 

      I wake up feeling good! No groggy pissed off headache depression anxiety combo. 

      I don’t need any anxiety/ depression medication anymore, it is manageable through keeping up on my sleep, healthy eating, exercise and other coping skills I have learned along the way. 

      I tried for years after my third child to moderate or quit drinking on my own but I never could do it for long, I never asked another person to help me on that journey because I was too afraid and too embarrassed and thought I should be able to do it myself. 

      Asking Casey for support and help was the best decision of my adult life.  

      If you have been trying and not getting anywhere, stop trying harder and try different things. Casey was the difference maker for me. 

      Hugs and love to every woman trying to do this. You can do it – and it’s worth it.

      – With love, Megan, Day 365+
