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.
I’m so excited you guys, because we are just about to start another live alcohol experiment. If you do not know about the alcohol experiment, you need to literally drop everything right now and go to thisnakedmind.com/lae. Here’s the thing, this 30 day challenge is designed to interrupt your patterns and put you back in touch with the best version of you. You’ll know it’s that version that’s living the most joyful life. That version that doesn’t need alcohol to relax or have a good time. And that version that’s having more fun and is more peaceful than ever. Again, it’s a 30 day challenge. It’s live. It’s starting on the 1st so hurry up, go to thisnakedmind.com/lae.
