Tired Of Thinking About Drinking With Belle Robertson
[My Sober Coach]
Today my guest on the podcast is my very own sober coach.
Belle Robertson from Tired Of Thinking About Drinking was the person I emailed on my very last “Day 1” 5 years ago, after I woke up at 3am and decided that I needed support to stop drinking wine every night.
After that first day, and over the course of 2 years, Belle and I exchanged over 800 email messages.
Belle held my hand through my first week without alcohol and gave me advice and support as I navigated dinner parties, crappy days at work, date nights, sick kids, camping trips and my first sober vacation in Europe.
I love Belle’s approach because it’s practical, approachable and positive.
When I started working with her I heard this message – and it set me on the path I’m still walking today. She said…
So I want you to imagine that there’s something else for you, something better than what you’re doing now. I want you to think about what could be rather than what is. So if there’s a you who right now is a person who’s drinking, and you want to be something else, and you want something else to happen in your life, and you don’t know how to get there. And you don’t know how to get this voice in your head to stop. I know what the answer is. I know that you don’t believe me when I tell you I know what the answer is. Because the answer is stop drinking. And when you stop drinking, things change.
In this episode, Belle and I discuss:
- The benefits of not drinking and having a sober coach
- Why having a positive mindset will help guide you through sobriety
- Why repeated relapse is normal and how to change your strategy to support sobriety
- How being sober takes work, it doesn’t happen overnight
- Why removing the booze will make things better for you and your relationships
- The drinking cycle of quitting drinking and how it affects your mental health
- The importance of self care during your sobriety journey
And if one of your goals in 2021 is to drink less + live more I can help.
I created an on-demand course, The Sobriety Starter Kit, which can help you make 2021 the year you stop drinking.
This online, self-study sober coaching course will help you quit drinking and build a life you love without alcohol.
The Sobriety Starter Kit is based on the sober coaching work I do with my private clients and is available at a cost that’s significantly more affordable than one-on-one coaching.
Plus the online Sobriety Starter Kit course is ready, waiting and available to support you anytime you need it.
When you purchase the course you’ll have lifetime access to it. You can start today or at any other time.
The course is self-paced, so you’re never ‘behind’. You can move through the lessons as quickly or slowly as you need to and revisit earlier lessons at any time.
In the Sobriety Starter Kit you’ll learn the framework, plus all the skills + strategies you need to stop drinking and build a life you love without alcohol – without white-knuckling it or hating the process.
And I’ll hold your hand each step of the way.
