Are You Afraid to Quit Drinking? Facing Your Fear of Sobriety

Are you Afraid to quit drinking? Does the thought of not drinking tomorrow, next week, at Christmas or ever, send  shivers down your spine or fill you with fear?

If so, then this special podcast recorded for you in time for All Hallows Eve, or Halloween is the perfect time to face our fears, look them in the eye and learn how to move past them.

At this time of year we’re scaring ourselves silly and doing things that perhaps we wouldn’t usually do, things that take us out of our comfort zone, things that leave us feeling exhilarated and alive.  We’re  facing our fears, doing things that terrify us on purpose, pushing past the scary feelings doing it anyway and it feels great!

Yet when it comes to quitting drinking, or doing anything new or different in our lives, we allow fear to hold us back instead of propelling us forward like we do on Halloween.

I did that for the longest time, even though I wanted to quit drinking, when I thought of sobriety I felt afraid. Perhaps you do too. After all, if drinking has been such a huge part of your life, the thought of never drinking again, ever, can be terrifying.

But are you willing to keep letting your fear of sobriety, your fear of the unknown and what your life could look like, keep you stuck? Some serious questions to ponder and practical and powerful techniques to help you move past your fear as you embrace the unknown wonder that is sobriety feeling exhilarated and excited.

Are you ready for the scariest step of your life? Of course you are!

In this episode

Why facing your fears helps to make them feel less scary and how to do it
Why looking at why you are so scared will help you uncover what’s really going on
Practical tips to cope with the feelings of being scared  
What happens when something feels really scary but you do it anyway

A really fangtastic (sorry) birthday offer you don’t want to miss!
