She’s BACK!! After two years, Annie welcomes back Meredith Atwood, a busy wife, mom, athlete….Meredith spent more than two decades using alcohol to numb her feelings and avoid dealing with her “stuff”. After a chilling moment of realizing, without a doubt, that she’d be dead within a year if she didn’t quit drinking, Meredith put herself in permanent restriction from alcohol. She’s now written a book called The Year of No Nonsense and she’s here to tell us about it and her life on this side of sobriety.

Let me ask you a question. What is better than change? Lasting change, of course. If you’ve had trouble making change stick, either with alcohol or in any other area of your life, you are in for a treat. I created the 100 Days of Lasting Change to ensure that we don’t just change for a moment, but we truly transform for a lifetime. This program is so close to my heart. Thousands of people have been through it, and their results are incredible. But don’t take my word for it, check it out at
