The simple answer is this program is unlike anything you have ever tried.
Using our whole mind and body holistic approach, you will not only change your philosophy
—your beliefs around alcohol created from the customs you were raised around, your perceptions of societal norms, and your learned alcohol consumption patterns; but in The Anchored Abstinence Recipe™
program we go much further by changing your physiology
—your physical brain and body.
Because, let's face it. If all of the journaling prompts, daily reflections, discussions about your beliefs around alcohol or any other forms of "talk therapy" approaches you've tried to change your 'mindset' around wine or cocktails up until now haven't worked it is because they're simply not enough to effectively correct the biochemistry of your brain. It is the alcohol-induced dysregulation of the biochemistry of your brain that is keeping you stuck in the nightly loop!
Your success, whether you choose complete abstinence or moderation, lies in simultaneously addressing these three critical areas of your health and wellbeing, so the shifts you make, and the gains you acquire create enduring momentum and lasting results that prevent your brain from sliding back into old unhealthy biochemically-driven patterns.
You can't "willpower" yourself out of this cycle. By simply focusing on "changing your relationship with alcohol"—an oxymoron, in my opinion, you're trying to fix the problem through language (i.e. speaking, listening and writing) a singular modality aimed primarily at your emotional mind. With that narrow approach, you neglect to address your physical mind—your biochemical brain.
Trying to "will" your mind to simply ignore the neurochemical messaging resulting from the biophysical conditioning, imbalances and deficiencies throughout your brain and body that are at the root of the issue and creating your thoughts of alcohol consumption only leads to disappointment. In order to rewire the neuropathways in your brain, you need to change the wiring with the correct biochemical building blocks and resources your brain needs.
Ignoring your body's physiology that is driving the cyclic patterns and cueing the nightly wine or cocktails is about as effective as ignoring an elephant in a room. An elephant that is rather persistent and not going anywhere by simply being spoken, written or listened to.
