Alcohol use disorder is a "perfect" storm (plus 5 steps to emotional sobriety)
Play • 39 min

Have you thought about quitting alcohol on and off for years--especially after a night of over-doing it?

But once the hanxiety wears off, sobriety feels complicated and overly dramatic?

The primary problem is not how much you drink. The problem is that you're relying on shame as a motivator. And once you feel better and the shame goes away, your motivation goes with it.

You're a perfectionist, not an alcoholic.

In this episode, I give you the five steps to emotional sobriety so that you can unlearn perfectionistic thought loops. Deal with life as it is instead of arguing with yourself about how it should be. Learn how to feel confident about who you are--with or without a drink in your hand.
