How much were you drinking and what problems was it causing?
At least a bottle of wine a night – more at the weekend
Disharmony with my husband.
Feelings of shame and self loathing.
What was the key reason you wanted to change … what motivated you?
My daughter – she is 9, and told me when we were swimming one day that she didn’t like how I acted when I had drank wine. You could have knocked me down with a feather as I wasn’t even aware she was conscious of my drinking
Were you sceptical this method would work for you?
Totally. How could one woman, some online modules, and a WhatsApp group of other ‘problem drinkers’ possibly have me alcohol free in 3 months. No chance, but yet here we are knocking on 80 days.
What difference has being alcohol free made to your life?
It has freed me.
Freed me from shame
Freed me from self loathing
Freed me from engineering every event into an opportunity to drink
Freed me from obsessing about my next drink
It’s given be back so much time to spend with my family and focus on the good things I life, with a clear head!
What would you say to someone worried about their drinking thinking of working with me?
Do it. Take that next step. If you are ready to commit to a change for the better, this is where you want to be. Sandra’s guidance advice and support will help you navigate your 3 months to taking back control.
