    How an NHL Player Found Inner-Peace by Taking Control of Alcohol

    Hey everyone! We've reached the final episode of Series 3, and what a wild ride it's been! We've had awesome guests, scientists, cool speakers, and some real game-changing Complete Control stories. Series 4 is up next, and we're cranking it up a notch!

    If you are interested in re-addressing your relationship with alcohol, don’t hesitate to check our page https://www.oneyearnobeer.com/
    Stepping away from the bright lights and roar of the crowd isn't easy, especially when it means confronting the silence within. That's the reality Scott, a former NHL icon, faced when he hung up his skates and embarked on a soul-searching journey towards sobriety.
    Prepare to strip away the glittering veneer of a professional athlete to uncover a culture of excess and the daunting pressures athletes endure, both on and off the ice. Scott's candid account of his struggles, from the allure of match-day highs topping the leaderboard, to the devastating lows of retirement from the professional game, paint a brutally honest snapshot of professional sport in 2024.
    In an intimate exchange, Scott tells coach Jen Fairbairns how he swapped pucks for introspection, and alcohol for authenticity. Hear how the Complete Control program transformed him when he was at his most vulnerable and how he hopes lasting peace can be found through meditation and community.
    The ice was Scott's battlefield, despite the inevitable physical injuries from match fixtures, his scars ran deeper with regular battles still fought his mind.

    Scott Thomas on Breaking the Chains of Alcohol

    Scott Thomas on Breaking the Chains of Alcohol

    Coming from a successful famous family sounds like it could be the perfect life, but for Scott Thomas, it exposed him to a world of temptation; as a club promoter and regular attendee at glitzy product launches as a PR company owner in his home town of Manchester.
    This explosive episode lifts the lid on the complexities of fame, identity, and the way public life's pressures can shape - and sometimes distort - one's future. Hear how Scott, best known for his time on reality TV show Love Island, publicly trod the path to sobriety, and how his personal battle with compulsive behaviours played out in the papers, rather than behind closed doors.
    Ruari and Scott also discuss living with an ADHD diagnosis and the clarity that it can bring to your life at a time when you're learning how to manage compulsive behaviours. Opening up about how community continues to play a critical role in his sobriety, Scott offers some strategies and support for those facing similar hurdles.
    Scott's story is full of empowerment, and charts a journey in which alcohol became denormalized, breaking free from the grasp it had on his daily life. The transformation from surviving to thriving demonstrates that with the right support, everyone can change their relationship with alcohol. Whether under the lens of publicity, or privately.

    Healing Through Community: Susie's Complete Control Story

    Healing Through Community: Susie's Complete Control Story

    In this deeply honest episode, Jen is joined by OYNB member Susie to discuss her shift from overindulgence to finding inner peace.
    Three years ago, after many summers filled with excessive alcohol consumption leading to a strain on her marriage and wider relationships, and with the social hangover outlasting the warm weather, Susie decided it was time to finally change her relationship with alcohol.
    After finding OYNB through social media, Susie embarked on an 8 week Complete Control challenge, finding her tribe with the other participants who were in a similar situation, by taking full advantage of the community that the program provided. Reflecting on her experience, Susie explains how important the role of daily routines are in sustaining a healthier lifestyle, how she rediscovered who she was by admitting her imperfections and how therapy brought about profound changes in all her relationships.
    As her coach, Jen celebrates the successful transformation that Susie has undergone, describing her as “a powerhouse”. For anyone looking to make a positive change to their behaviours, Susie’s story is truly inspirational. This episode dismantles the misconceptions surrounding sobriety, and instead celebrates the clarity and care that come from making healthier choices.

    "Just work harder": Straight talk with Joe De Sena

    "Just work harder": Straight talk with Joe De Sena

    Join the ranks of those who dare to live a life of discipline and purpose, as we sit down with the indomitable Joe De Sena. Get ready to be challenged and inspired by Joe’s relentless pursuit of resilience, where actions speak louder than words. Hear tales of early morning workouts where a true test of character is part of the daily grind. Joe’s "nobody cares, work harder" mantra isn’t just a catchphrase; it’s a call to arms to anyone who is looking to inspire change and lead by a powerful example. But the path to success isn’t paved with protein shake; it’s full of trials and the occasional stumble.
    In this motivational episode, we break down the notion that young people should be shielded from adversity. Instead, we explore the benefits of letting them experience the rich lessons that come from pushing past our comfort zones. With Joe’s insight and Ruari’s own parenting journey, we discuss the benefits that instilling grit and a strong work ethic from an early age can have.
    We also hear about how life changing taking part in a Spartan race can be. These races are more than just physical challenges; they’re transformative opportunities that allow participants to take greater control over their life choices, including the decision to say ‘no’ to alcohol.
    Joe is a huge tour de force; so for those on a new year health kick, or having already taken steps towards taking control over compulsive behaviours, this episode is the motivation YOU need.

    New Year, New Beginnings - It's Time to Take Control

    New Year, New Beginnings - It's Time to Take Control

    Happy New Year!
    Today is the first day of 2024, and there is resolution in the air.
    We often find ourselves in a societal loop - normalising alcohol, the very substance that dims our sparkle, only to seek remedies for the gloom it brings. Have you ever considered the silent toll that alcohol is taking on your professional drive and the quality of your connections with family and friends?
    This special episode could be the beginning of a year of change for you - it’s time to take control. But unlike “Dry January”, it isn’t about cutting back on drinking for a limited time; it’s an invitation to envision a life where clarity, focus, and relationships flourish. We invite you to imagine your future, the personal growth you see for yourself, and to be honest about the very real (and mostly hidden) costs that alcohol has on your life.
    Behind all of this is the neuroscience powering compulsive behaviours. Learn about strategies to manage stress and prevent it from derailing your ambitions for the year ahead. And explore how mindfulness techniques like breathwork can lead to overcoming habits and living a life filled with more personal wins and self love.
    What does the best version of yourself look like this year? Grab some headphones and join founder Ruari in creating your personal manifesto for 2024 and beyond.

Brilliant

Absolutely love this podcast. Such a great inspirational listen and it so helpful on my AF journey. If you’re sober curious or know you want an AF life, you need this podcast in your life!!

Really awkward

Who knew sobriety could be so profitable?! I honestly thought i was listening to an infomercial. Another sober podcast pushing a coaching program. Yawn.

I just can’t warm to these two, I’m sure they might be lovely in real life but they remind me of a couple who would pretend to be really concerned if i was in a serious accident… then come visit me in hospital and unplug my life support machine so they could charge their cellphones.

Maybe stop trying to make money and start trying to actually help people

Adverts spoil my enjoyment

The first five minutes of adverts set the tone and don’t come across as being terribly sincere. I will fast forward (showing my age!) the first five minutes of all podcasts.
