Alcohol: The stories we tell ourselves, happiness, our bodies, and sex. Week 2 of The Alcohol Experiment

It's week 2 of our 30 day alcohol free challenge!

In this episode we discuss the important role of self talk in our life, the power of gratitude, and how to handle temptation. We also address how to deal with sugar cravings, phantom hangovers, and the effects of alcohol on your sex life. Spoiler alert: it's not what you probably think.

I also interview Sue, who is over 100 days out and still choosing not to drink. She shares her inspiring story, including her past successes, failures and why this time it's been different. Hear what has worked for her, as well as the extra bonus of increased happiness, clarity and substantial weight loss.

We also discuss:

  • Alcohol's effect on our body and brain
  • The alcohol cancer connection
  • The positive cultural shift around not drinking
  • How fermented food and Kombucha can help with cravings

*If you've ever thought about taking a month off of drinking, or quitting all together then join the 30 day experiment any time and show yourself a little self care. Plus its just a social experiment...you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You can start this anytime! Just order the book and listening with episode 77.

Tips for success:

  • Make a firm decision to commit to the experiment 100%
  • Tell someone you trust about WHY you are doing this
  • Drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins (I also like to add drinking celery juice to your morning routine for a bonus detox)
  • Shower every morning to wash of toxins from the night
  • Get plenty of sleep. This is when your cells repair them selves
  • Step up your exercise. You will feel better and it oxygenates your blood
  • Eat cleaner healthier foods, bump up your protein intake
  • Journal daily
  • Take be before photo, and record your weight
  • STAY SOCIAL! This is not a time to hibernate and cancel your social plans. You don't want to feel deprived. Seeing family and friends is important :)
  • Be positive.. Make this is a self love, judgement free experience.
