I’m going to jump right in here and say that if you have been doing dry January and are coming to the end of an alcohol-free month I want you to keep going, keep going, keep going, keep going because the best is yet to come it really is.
And if you’re on the fence, or just starting out then the next 100 are going to involve some of the worst and best times of your life, that’s not to say that getting sober is not totally worth it because it is. But I also want to be real.
In this podcast I will go through some of the physical and emotional changes and symptoms you are likely to experience and explain that while it might feel rubbish at the time, these changes are good, they really are!
I talk about why 100 days is such a great milestone to aim for, and my own experiences of sobriety during those first 100 days.
Also should we count the days at all and what it actually means to be alcohol-free.
In this episode
I share the ONE thing that helped me feel good about my first 100 days of sobriety and beyond
I give you some client insights and experiences of their first 100 days and how they overcame their own challenges
How your first 100 days of sobriety can totally be awesome, motivational and inspiring and how to create that experience for yourself
Why coaching, support, and accountability can play such an important role in ensuring success and awesomeness during those first 100 days
I share some of the tools other than cake that I used to help me in the beginning and offer ideas on what you can do to make this an enjoyable experience as possible.

Thank you for sharing this podcast with the world. As a single mother who is on day 74 alcohol-free, it’s definitely tough sometimes to feel at-ease with my decision to let go of alcohol for an extended time. Overall, it’s been great–my anxiety has dissipated and I’m pampering and indulging myself more than ever. I really appreciate you sending these reassuring messages to love on ourselves abundantly throughout the first 100 days (and beyond). It’s so nice not having to budget for wine and booking a massage instead!!! Signing off from Laguna Beach, CA…
Hi Alyssa! Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me, I really appreciate it and hugest congratulations to you on 74 days, this is awesome. I love it that you are spending money on gorgeous massages instead of booze – feels so much better doesn’t it! I think it is so important to keep up with the message of self care, looking after yourself, pampering and indulgence as it can feel hard sometimes and we can feel like we are missing out, but these are just fleeting thoughts. The reality is that we are gaining so much, much more than the booze could ever give us. Keep going, you are doing brilliantly and do keep in touch x
