Highlights of Stars Like Us With Aliza Kelly
This Stars Like Us Podcast is unlike any other I’ve ever done. Here’s some key points from it.
- unique upbringing. I was actually born and raised in a tiny, one room cabin on the backside of a mountain at 10,500 feet, without running water or electricity.
- Parents didn’t drink alcohol. There wasn’t alcohol in our house. There also wasn’t sugar in our house. We had carob, not chocolate. We’d have honey and maple syrup.
- Moving to NY after college, still not drinking much
- Being told careers are made at happy hour
- 26 and head of marketing for the whole country
- My method – glass of wine, glass of water, glass of wine, glass of water, make sure I never got too tipsy
- Going to the bathroom to throw up the glass of wine so that I could keep drinking wine, and just make sure I could keep up.
- Replacing things I was doing for my mental health, or for my health in general with alcohol
- Drinking almost two bottles of wine every single night
- Trying to drink less
- Forbidden fruit syndrome
- Fighting with ourselves, this both wanting to do more and less of something, and then beating ourselves up for it, it’s really, really brutal on the human soul.
- “I’m going home to my family, my husband and two young boys, and I’m bringing them the worst of myself, and they really deserve the best of me.”
- Why? Why is this different than it used to be? How is it that when I first started drinking, I could look at the bill and be like, it’s expensive I don’t want to do that anymore. Now, if I don’t have a drink, I feel totally deprived, and like I’m missing out.
- Committed to curiosity
- I drink what I want, whenever I want.
- Replaced all of the shame and blame with curiosity.
- How alcohol impacts us
- Finding freedom from alcohol
