I studied hard. Earned a law degree. Built a thriving business. Was raising my kids and helping my parents. From the outside, I was killing it.
And yet, I drank too much.
Why was I unable to control my drinking when I succeeded in everything else? Was I really unhappy with the life others would love to have?
Therapy didn’t help. I wasn’t an alcoholic. I’d never risk a client or someone I knew professionally seeing me at a 12-step meeting. I knew I didn’t need (or have time for) rehab.
I’d tell myself I wouldn’t drink, or would only have one, then overdo it, again. Countless silly arguments with my husband occurred that wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t drank. There were less than flattering moments in front of colleagues.
Then I worked with a consultant and coach who exclusively helps overdrinkers. Finally someone understood where I was and where I wanted to go. She helped me unlearn self-destructive habits and replace them with positive ones. We worked on my mind, emotions and actions—getting better and faster results than I thought possible.
My whole life changed.
Professional organizations know drinking too much is a serious problem—impacting our career, clients, personal relationships and health. We hide, not wanting others to question our competency.
I solved my overdrinking and so can you. I’ll teach you how.
