You did it!! 30 days alcohol-free. So What comes next?

Bravo and give yourself a hand!

You should be so proud of yourself for giving the 30 day alcohol-free challenge a try, I know I am!

So how did it go? In today's BONUS episode I discuss the conclusion of our experience as well as what comes next. It is so important come from a place of liberation vs fixation. Remembering to see the benefits of our choices and how good they can make us feel, instead of having an internal monologue of self judgement and negativity. There is no place for those low vibrating feelings in your life! Period!

It is also so important moving forward, to reframe perceived mistakes as necessary learning experiences. As Annie says, it might take you 2 or 3 times trying this experiment to work, but every time you will learn something to your benefit and get that much closer to your ultimate goal. Maybe your goal is cutting back, maybe it is to modify when you choose to drink and maybe you want to quit for good. What every your personal "Why" is, make the decision from a place of POWER!

Think of it this way, if you slipped one time in the 30 days, that is a 97% success rate! and if you slipped 5 times, that is still a 84% success rate. Not too shabby.

Whats Next?

Now that we have finished the 30 day experiment, take some time and make a list of your non-negotiables moving forward. In other words, what are your personal lines in the sand that if you cross you will go back and try this experiment again.

Examples form my list are:

  • If I drink for any reason other than to celebrate because I feel like it. (not because others are or I feel pressure, perceived or real)
  • If I drink more than 2 drinks when I am out...ever!
  • If I wake up with a hang over...ever!

Now is also time to decide what you would like your relationship with alcohol in the future to be. Be honest with yourself and remember WHY you started.

Remember....This is YOUR story, YOUR mind, YOUR life and YOUR choice! You GOT THIS!

I Also Mention:

  • My personal experience with already having a drink...yep!
  • The importance of making decisions around drinking ahead of time. Plan before you go and stick to it.
  • What does moderation really mean? What does it mean to you?
  • The only failure is giving up. Life is long and it's NEVER too late :)
  • Ethanol and looking at the % of alcohol in drinks as % of poison: Beer 4-6% Poison, Wine 12-16% poison, the hard stuff 40+ % poison, etc
  • Video yourself drunk...really. "Drunk for science" link below but I'm not endorsing or recommending this.
  • Free 24 hour access to community support moving forward at
