If I’m really honest with you, there’s something I was using in the same way I used to use food. I was using it to numb.
Today marks 68 days of being alcohol free.
If you feel crazy and compulsive around food, you know how big of a deal it is to be free from ANY compulsive behavior, because of all the inner demons, doubt, fear and energy thats tangled with it.
What’s really cool is that I applied all the same principles, tools and steps I teach in the Escape From Emotional Eating to become alcohol free.
It’s been a journey, for sure.
Thank goodness for the tools.
But now I have no energetic connection, no magnetic pull, to alcohol like there used to be. I don’t feel compelled to numb (even when everyone around me is drinking!). Now I have a choice.
When I first started my journey to heal my emotional eating, I had this fear that healing would be worse than the “food jail” I was in. And when I was looking at my relationship with alcohol I had that same fear.
It was as if my mind was seeing the freedom I desperately desired as death.
But standing here before you today, having walked this journey with food (and now alcohol!), I can confidently say that this journey BIRTHS a new, even better version of yourself.
A brighter, lighter, happier, healthier, more in integrity with yourself version of you.
That’s certainly how I feel.
And it gets better and better each day.
To choosing with nourishes you,
