Overdrinking Due to Stress?

 

Is your reward starting to feel more like punishment?

Are you feeling disconnected with yourself, your loved ones and your life?

Are you feeling more stress and anxiety?

Are you drinking more to cope with these things?

 

The messaging all around us is clear; a nice glass of wine or a cold beer will make you feel better about your day. It will also make you more attractive, fun and sociable. Maybe you're starting to realize that alcohol is adding to your stress, not relieving it.

 

There's nothing wrong with you. You've just been sold a lie that millions of people buy into every day. And the good news is, this awareness will be the key to setting yourself free.

Overdrinking Due to Stress?

Is your reward starting to feel more like punishment?

Are you feeling disconnected with yourself, your loved ones and your life?

Are you feeling more stress and anxiety?

Are you drinking more to cope with these things?

 

The messaging all around us is clear; a nice glass of wine or a cold beer will make you feel better about your day. It will also make you more attractive, fun and sociable. Maybe you're starting to realize that alcohol is adding to your stress, not relieving it.

 

There's nothing wrong with you. You've just been sold a lie that millions of people buy into every day. And the good news is, this awareness will be the key to setting yourself free.

 

Does Any of This Sound Like You?

  • You are highly functioning and successful in most areas of your life, but when it comes to your drinking you feel out of control.
  • You might even be able to take breaks from alcohol, but always feel a sense of deprivation.
  • You spend a lot of time thinking about drinking or wondering if you are drinking too much.
  • You find yourself drinking alone a lot more often so you don't have to worry about what other people think.
  • You find yourself looking forward to the end of the day because it means you get to drink and this is starting to concern you.

These are some of the things I felt before I stopped drinking. But I had a difficult time stopping on my own and I couldn't bring myself to go into treatment or a 12-step program. I needed another way.

Here's what I found; redefining your relationship with alcohol doesn't have to come with shame, labels, or rules. It doesn't even mean you have to commit to never drinking again. I can show you how to make alcohol small and irrelevant in your life and empower you to make decisions about your drinking that work for you. You can find peace and joy again without relying on willpower or feeling deprived.

Did you know?

The DSM-5 no longer recognizes the term "alcoholic". Instead, they refer to an Alcohol Use Disorder, which is a range of mild, moderate and severe.

And...

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reported that 14.5 million people aged 12 and up suffered from AUD (alcohol use disorder) in 2019. Less than 10% of those people received treatment.  Link to article here. 

Perhaps that's because of this polarization and the stigma still attached to anyone who can't "drink normally". What does that even mean?

Many drinkers fall in the category of "gray area drinker", a term coined by Jolene Park. The term refers to those drinkers that fall in between those that have hit "rock bottom" and those that rarely drink or never drink. But where do gray area drinkers go to get help with this?

 

I found myself in that gray area. Even though I studied addiction. Even though I watched my dad struggle with his drinking. Even though I spent most of my childhood and teens determined to never turn into an "alcoholic". Even though I drank "normally" for most of my adult life.

Here's the truth; alcohol is an addictive substance to anyone. No one is immune, but not everyone develops a problem.

I created Your Soberevolution Coaching to share what I learned both in my education and personal experience with alcohol. I want people to know that they don't have to wait for "rock bottom" to make changes to their drinking. Or be forced to wear a label and declare themselves powerless. My goal is to help people change their desire for alcohol, so they don't feel deprived. My ultimate goal; to help other women build a life they don't feel they need to drink to "deal with" or escape from.

My Journey

For years I felt like I was trapped in my own personal Groundhog Day.  Just surviving one mundane, albeit stress filled day after another; I felt like I was just going through the motions. At a certain point the only thing I looked forward to was that glass of wine at the end of the day. Eventually, that glass turned into a bottle and then two; my reward for making it through the day. Until it stopped feeling like a reward and felt more like a prison. 

Whether you're just feeling lackluster about your life and wondering if changing your relationship with alcohol could help or you're sure that your drinking has become problematic, I can help you discover your path to freedom.
