    What’s Wrong with a Reward?

    What’s Wrong with a Reward?

    Pouring a drink at the end of the day can be a treat. But it can easily sabotage your goal of changing your relationship with alcohol. Especially if you have a love-hate relationship with your desire for rewards. 
    This episode will help you stop framing the reward you want as good or bad. Instead, you’ll learn why it’s important to view the desire for a drink as neutral, and how that can help you tap into the inner workings of the habit. 
    Discover the real problem when it comes to wanting to reward yourself at the end of the day, and why a drink might actually be a mismatch for what you truly need.

    Hair of the Dog

    Hair of the Dog

    Using alcohol as a remedy for a hangover is so common that it has its own term: “the hair of the dog.” Discover why some people swear by this and what’s really happening when you drink to feel better. 
    This episode explains the real reason hangovers feel bad (it’s not what you think). We explore why so many people promise “never again” after a hangover, only to go back on their word. And we examine why you should be a scientist—not a moralist—when you’re looking for relief.

Labels defined

What a fabulous podcast regarding the tendency for labeling things, and the tendency to limit the outcomes because of labeling. Wish this teaching was around when I was younger. Truly helpful in providing effective tools to help us retrain our thoughts to bring about successful outcomes for ourselves and others without using a judgment measure. Thank you!!!
