EP 315: Naked Life Story - Kelly

As a kid, Kelly watched her mom struggle with alcohol. There was physical and emotional abuse. Although her own relationship with alcohol started out “just like everyone else’s” and she was well aware of what alcohol could do to a person, Kelly found herself drinking to manage emotional waves and blackout. Though Kelly never missed work or got a DUI, red flags popped up as she tried to moderate and set rules around her drinking. Today, she has taken back her power, made alcohol small, and broken an intergenerational cycle of alcohol abuse. I'm so excited you guys, because we are just about to start another live alcohol experiment. If you do not know about the alcohol experiment, you need to literally drop everything right now and go to thisnakedmind.com/lae. That's L-A-E for Live Alcohol Experiment.

EP 313: Naked Life Story - Amy M.

Amy didn’t pick up alcohol until college. After graduation, she put it down again. People often found it curious that she didn’t drink. However, when she became a parent to special needs children, everything changed. Though well-intentioned, the moms with whom Amy connected supported one another by encouraging drinking and she began using alcohol to cope with life’s stresses. The logic that drinking wouldn’t change anything never worked on Amy; the fact things were never going to change was the very reason she drank. Though alcohol became very sneaky and difficult to break up with, Amy found the freedom she deeply wanted, even amidst a pandemic. Are you ready for a deep dive into truly lasting change? If so, you might consider my Intensive Program. It’s a 9-week, self-led program that you can do in the complete comfort of your own home. It will truly transform your relationship with alcohol. If you want to learn more about this, go to thisnakedmind.com/intensive.

EP 312: Reader Question - How can I convince others not to drink?

Annie Grace answers a phenomenal question today. A reader asks, “Now that I know the truth about alcohol, how do I not force it on others who are doing the same thing I was?” When you have removed alcohol from your life and learned so much from your experience and you’re watching people you love continue doing something that’s harmful to them, how do you reconcile those things? What can you do to get people to take your advice? If you asked me about the one thing that makes This Naked Mind so different from anything else, I would have to say emotion. It is the emotion when people feel really ready to make a change, when they’ve had that mindset shift, when they’ve gone through all the materials and the methodology and they get this feeling that it’s not that they never get to drink again it's that they never have to drink again. And, interestingly, according to all sorts of new research, it is emotion, especially positive emotion, more than anything else that predicates how long a change will stick, how long it will last. It is emotion. When you feel excited about a change in your life. When you feel thrilled you’re making this new difference, instead of feeling deprived like you’re missing out, everything changes. And it really makes it that This Naked Mind can stick for the long term. If you want to know more about how to truly change your emotion around drinking, I want you to join me at nakedmindpath.com. It is the path to changing your emotion and changing your feelings and really finding freedom in your relationship with alcohol.

EP 311: Naked Life Story - Victoria

When she began the process of deciding whether to try to moderate her drinking or completely remove alcohol from her life, Victoria took a quiz to figure out her core values. The results didn’t tell her anything new - she was already aware of her core values. However, what she realized is that when she had alcohol in her system, she was not living with integrity. From anxiety to marriage to divorce to marriage to motherhood (times four) to a cancer diagnosis and treatment to finding freedom from alcohol, This Naked Mind coach Victoria shares her story and how she's brought her behavior and beliefs into alignment. Are you looking to connect with like-minded people? Sometimes maybe you feel like you have all this information from doing This Naked Mind or The Alcohol Experiment, but you’re living in a world where people don’t speak your language. That is why I created The Exchange. The Exchange from This Naked Mind is an online community where we meet face to face, live with video calls multiple times a week with people from all over the world just to connect and have somewhere that you are seen, you are heard, and you feel less alone. A place where you can really give back and get the support you need. If this sounds great to you, check it out at www.thisnakedmind.com/exchange.
