Ditch the upcoming New Year resolutions!
How about just setting out to be the best you can be – for you!
Instead of setting yourself a list of ideals to reach, it’s a lovely idea to choose a word to focus on, how do you want to feel this year and next? What can you begin/do more of/return to, in order to feel happy and thriving?
If you are considering giving up the booze or if you want to focus on optimum health and wellbeing underpinned by not drinking alcohol, then one mantra I repeat a fair bit is ‘Keep the Ritual Change the Ingredients’ – you definitely don’t want to feel deprived, and you don’t need to! There are so many options now for delicious alcohol-free drinks and we have some to give away in our competitions here if you’ve not entered yet then do so to be in with a chance of winning some brilliant prizes.
I have been sober now for more than three years and in the beginning when I finally caught sight of the ‘elephant in the room’ that was booze, I literally inhaled ‘quit lit’ and podcasts, but there wasn’t much that went beyond the ‘I’m sober… now what?’
So, as you know I launched The Sober Club and my ‘Alcohol Free Life’ podcast and my book ‘Happy Healthy Sober’ which is available in different ebook formats, which I hope will inspire others to look at their relationship with alcohol and ditch the booze to live their best life.
This book shares my story, gives a 30-day challenge (you don’t have to be at rock bottom to benefit from ditching the booze) and has a huge section on wellbeing, with some amazing expert contributors on topics such as nutrition, therapies, creativity, anxiety, the menopause, meditation, fitness, et al. The foreword is by the wonderful Denise Welch who was one of my podcast guests and has been so open about how she got sober and the impact it had on her clinical depression.
Thanks in advance to anyone who buys it, reviews it, recommends it, it really means a lot, it’s been a while since I’ve released a book, I’d forgotten what a ‘thing’ it is! Thanks to everyone who contributed and of course my amazing Sober Club members, some shared their tips and stories for the book too.
