    Tools To Overcome Alcohol Cravings

    Tools To Overcome Alcohol Cravings

    In early sobriety, it’s important to have tools and practices to help you overcome alcohol cravings.

    It’s normal to have cravings to drink in your first few weeks without alcohol, and they’ll get less strong and frequent the further you get away from the drinking cycle. 

    In the beginning, alcohol cravings are driven by physical, social, emotional and habitual cues to drink. 

    Understanding why cravings occur, knowing your triggers and finding new activities and practices to overcome the discomfort of wanting to drink will help you develop healthier ways to manage your emotions and social situations.

    I asked Mary Tilson, a certified Professional Recovery Coach (IAPRC), Yoga & Meditation Teacher and the Founder of Sun & Moon Sober Living, to come on the podcast to share the best practices and strategies to overcome alcohol cravings.

    Life After Drinking - Two Years Alcohol-Free

    Life After Drinking - Two Years Alcohol-Free

    When you first start on your sober journey it’s hard to imagine life after drinking, much less how you’ll feel at 2 years alcohol-free. 

    So I asked a sober coaching client of mine, Sue Winters, to join me on the podcast to talk about quitting drinking and her life now that she’s 2 years alcohol-free. I started working with Sue in early sobriety and here’s what she told me about her drinking…

    “For the past 10 years I’ve known that I was drinking too much. I’ve tried repeatedly to cut back, moderate or quit and I’ve failed every time. I’m caught in a self-destructive cycle of drinking a bottle of wine most nights of the week, not sleeping, waking up hungover, gaining weight and being unhappy”.

    It’s now been two years since Sue said goodbye to that self-destructive drinking cycle and she feels like her sober adventure is only just beginning.

    Love Your Sober Year

    Love Your Sober Year

    Your first sober year can be awkward, challenging, empowering, tender, transformative and unsettling. Over the course of moving from your first 30 Days not drinking to completing 12 months alcohol-free you will learn to navigate events, relationships, work, parenting and joy, anger, anxiety, stress without drinking. 

    You’ll also move through awakenings, transitions and the seasons of the year with a new clarity and awareness of the world around you. Some people describe sobriety after a longer period of drinking as being able to see everything in technicolor. 

    So as you move from one week alcohol-free to 52 weeks of sobriety it helps to have a guide to  ground yourself in the natural rhythms of the year and the seasons of sobriety. 

    My friends Kate Baily and Mandy Manners from Love Sober have created just that. 
    Their new book Love Your Sober Year, A Seasonal Guide To Living Alcohol-Free is an intentional guide to sobriety through each of the four seasons of the year.

    Your First Sober Holiday Season

    Your First Sober Holiday Season

    If you’re in early sobriety or are trying to stop drinking, navigating your first sober holiday season can be a challenge. 

    Why is it hard to get through your first sober holiday season?

    Well, the holidays are not only a wonderful time of year but also a gauntlet of social, emotional and environmental triggers to drink. 

    I was nine months sober my first holiday season and thought that I would have no problem enjoying it alcohol-free. And still, I was surprised by the need to tap into sober support and plan around drinking events to maintain my sobriety.

    Kimberly Kearns, a friend and author of the sobriety memoir On the Edge of Shattered, also had a difficult time in her first sober holiday season. Kim stopped drinking right after Thanksgiving and was only 3 weeks sober going into her first sober Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s Eve.  

    Kim and I are going to share with you all our best tips, advice and strategies to survive your first sober holiday season.

    Your Addictive Voice and The One You Feed

    Your Addictive Voice and The One You Feed

    When you’re struggling with drinking it can feel like a battle within you, between your addictive voice that tells you that you deserve to have a drink and the other voice (the one that shows up in the morning) that tells you alcohol is dragging you down and making you sick. 

    I call my addictive voice “Wolfie” based on the parable of The Two Wolves. 

    When that endless debate goes on in your head about whether you should drink or not, you might wonder, which voice wins?

    Your addictive voice or the voice telling you that you need to take a break from drinking? 

    The answer is the one you feed.

    Today Eric Zimmer, host of the incredibly popular podcast with over 30 million downloads, The One You Feed, author and behavior coach, is here to talk about what happens when you feed your addiction vs. turning towards the good wolf.

    Risk Factors For Alcohol Use Disorder

    Risk Factors For Alcohol Use Disorder

    What are the risk factors for alcohol use disorder? Are they genetic, social, environmental or psychological?

    Alcohol is the most widely misused substance in America and, according to the National Center For Drug Abuse Statistics, 1-in-10 Americans over the age of 12 qualify as having a mild, moderate or severe Alcohol Use Disorder.

    So how do you get to your first year alcohol-free?

    I asked Dr. Nzinga Harrison to share both the risk factors for alcohol use disorder and strategies to help people become part of the 75% of people who do recover. 

    Dr. Harrison is a physician with specialties in addiction medicine and psychiatry, the Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of Eleanor Health and co-founder of Physicians for Criminal Justice Reform. She’s spent her career focusing on stigma reduction and health equity and is an advocate for leading with empathy in addiction treatment and reframing the way we view and address addiction and the people who are dealing with substance use disorders.

Five stars sober podcast

Casey’s energy and enthusiasm about sobriety has kept me tuning in religiously. Seriously, I have listened to almost one a day in my 60 day sober streak, which by the way, is a personal record! I truly believe that this podcast has helped provide me with some pivotal tools that I have needed to move the needle and stay on the right track.

This podcast changed my life

The Hello Someday Podcast was so beneficial in my early days of sobriety. I decided to stop drinking last November 2021. During my first 100 days of not drinking, I would listen to Casey’s podcast on the drive to and from work. This podcast was just the support I needed to quit drinking once and for all. Like most, alcohol was dramatically impacting my mental health and overall well-being.

I am now approaching my one year booze-free anniversary and haven’t looked back on my decision since. The first few months were tough to navigate but this podcast really helped support me on my journey. This podcast gave me the courage and support to make it through my first 100 days alcohol free and concurrently changed my life for the better. Thank you, Casey!

Running out of steam

The first year of episodes were great but the guests lately have been subpar and uninspiring. I was especially taken aback by episode 133 (I think) where they were complaining about the support breast cancer patients receive. No, breast cancer is not all about posting shaved head, hospital selfies. There have been a lot of shallow, self-centered and self-aggrandizing guests on lately but this conversation left me speechless.
