The Booze Break Podcast is a diary of my journey taking a break from alcohol as well as looking into the different ways to help sustain a break from the booze!

We’ll be going through the ups and downs as I circumnavigate my way through work, family life and social situations without the hooch.

I’ll be delving into the general benefits of living alcohol free and tackling topics such as socialising without alcohol, the health benefits of taking a break from booze and creating new healthy habits.

If you think you’re drinking more than you should or find yourself making excuses for breaking your ‘let’s just drink at the weekends’ rule. Perhaps it’s time to consider taking a BOOZE BREAK

    I am thrilled to be speaking with the wonderful Denise Fagan on Today’s Podcast. Denise is a holistic therapist and mental health and successful development coach.

    "Take fail out from your language....it's just feedback. Fail creates emotion therefore the need to drink." 
    - Denise Fagan
    Show Notes:Denise talks about NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) which is the way your thought connect with how you feel and the way you then behave.
    Denise shared how she started her "drinking career"
    Her drinking habit changed when she was getting through her divorce.
    "When I wake up in the morning I feel so much clearer and brighter...And if I'm honest I didn't have that fear because I started to get fear of going out with my friends because I know they want me to have a drink. And I know that drink would cause me pain." - Denise
    Tapping into what your values are is a really first good step to change.
    Denise focuses on the negative aspects of alcohol to help her abstain.
    "Booze Break is having a break and not necessarily about stopping or abstaining." - Dan
    Denise talks about NLP coaching. She helps people find the WHY and help them to think differently and how to break the habit.

    Build Confidence without Alcohol - Scott Hardiman

    Build Confidence without Alcohol - Scott Hardiman

    It's a big day for me as I have hit my original goal of 90 days booze free. I signed up with One Year No Beer and took on their 90 day challenge and with their support, guidance and the help of the massive community in their closed Facebook group, I've smashed that goal!

    I feel amazing. Who knew that abstaining from alcohol for 3 months would have such a positive and life changing affect.

    I feel so much healthier, well rested, enthusiastic and emotionally stable.
    The destructive and unhealthy things I used to enjoy as a drinker are no longer a part of my life and have been replaced with development, learning, exercise, progressing in my career and most importantly for me, dedicated and 100% present time with my wife and daughter.


    There's no sugar coating it, I'm a better Dad without alcohol in my life. But I'm not stopping there. I'm not ready to give up the incredible changes to my world, so the show must go on and I'll be taking you along with me as I continue to navigate this amazing life sans alcohol.

    So my guest for this week is Scott Hardiman.

    Scott is a coach that specialises in building confidence. He tells us about his journey of being alcohol free and we talk about Scott's past history battling anxiety for over 5 years and how this affected his perception of drinking.

    We broach the subjects of anxiety and confidence and how we can tackle anxious thoughts and build confidence without the need to self medicate through alcohol.

    Scott also explains and demonstrates that being more present and mindful can help alleviate anxious thoughts

    One a side note we talk about my crippling fear of holiday entertainment teams and he teaches me how to question my negative self talk.

    I'm excited to share this interview with you and I hope you enjoy it.

    Finding Happiness Without Alcohol - Interview with John Davidson - Happiness Hacks

    Finding Happiness Without Alcohol - Interview with John Davidson - Happiness Hacks

    Who doesn't want to be more happy?! Silly question really, but do we ever consider what affect alcohol has on our happiness? Is it holding us back from a more rich and fulfilling life?

    Looking back I don't think I was truly happy when I was drinking. And when I wasn't drinking, I would be suffering the affects of heightened anxiety, guilt and the negative physical symptoms that come with drinking.

    I would trade a few hours of boozy relief for a day of suffering in a continuous cycle. That's no way to live a happy life.

    In this episode I'm thrilled to be joined by John Davidson; a psychotherapist, host of Happiness Hacks podcast and all around lovely guy.

    He decided to cut alcohol out of his life 7 years ago and as a result, he completely changed his career and lifestyle to one that is based around both caring for himself and helping others with their mental health.

    We cover some fascinating topics including how to swap out alcohol as a coping strategy to something more beneficial and also how to develop other areas of your life alongside your relationship with alcohol.

    Check out the Happiness Hacks Website as well as on Spotify and Apple Podcasts

    John also has a brand now programme called YOUniversity which is a 12 month course on living a happier life.
