    On today’s episode, Annie Grace answers a question from an alcohol free reader who recently found herself sipping sparkling water surrounded by people discussing and romanticizing the wine they were all drinking. How could she not feel uncomfortable and attacked? Is there any way to appreciate someone else’s passion when it doesn’t align with your own?

    EP 293: Naked Life Story - Julia

    EP 293: Naked Life Story - Julia

    A self-described “messy drinker” from the start, Julia grew up in the middle of nowhere on the England/Scotland border and had her first taste of alcohol around 14 years old. While she often worried about alcoholism and whether or not she was drinking too much, she easily calmed her fears and assured herself she was alright when she watched those around her drinking the same way she did. By the time she turned 40, Julia was living in a big loop of drinking, hangovers, and generally getting in her own way all the time. Since quitting drinking, she has gone from being convinced living without alcohol was going to be a boring, grey half-life without any friends or fun to writing a book about her journey and feeling safe and secure with the absence of alcohol as a rock underneath her.

    EP 291: Coaching Questions with Scott Pinyard

    It’s time for this month’s coaching questions with This Naked Mind head coach Scott Pinyard! In today’s episode, Scott talks about dealing with the temptation of drinking to celebrate as we emerge from quarantine, getting past the “brick wall” that keeps showing up at five days alcohol free, why some people are addicted to alcohol and others can control it, and whether or not the lessons we learn to stop drinking can be used for other things.
