Have you ever thought you were too old to change? That old saying, “you can’t teach an old dog a new trick” can have us doubting our ability to embrace this alcohol-free life.
Today, I want to introduce you to 3 ladies who have not only ditched booze but who have learned that the best years are our ‘golden years’. And, living alcohol-free means true freedom; to embrace new beginnings, to explore deeper and more meaningful relationships and to challenge ourselves to live life to the fullest!
Here’s one thing I learned recently; the reasons we drink in our 50’s and 60’s are often interwined with the reasons we drank in our 30’s and 40’s. Life doesn’t stop and wait for us to catch up, it keeps delivering the good, the bad, and, sometimes, the ugly moments. If alcohol has been a part of your life for many years, it can feel daunting to imagine living without our go-to, our crutch, or even our best friend.
So, how do we face our biggest fears around NOT drinking and take those first steps forward? My guests today will share their own path to self-discovery and to changing their relationship with alcohol.
Michelle, Maryann and Angela get real about motherhood, caregiving, marital intimacy (yes, sober sex!), and discovering the beauty of an alcohol-free life!
