How do you go from being the drinker poking fun at non-drinkers to the non-drinker afraid of being the butt of the drinkers’ jokes? What can you do to avoid being perceived as a hypocrite if you speak up when people think they’re being funny at your expense? Annie Grace shares her wisdom and advice in today’s episode.

Hi, it’s Annie Grace. I wanted to interrupt this podcast. I guess the end of this podcast, to say that if you are totally serious about actually truly and forevermore transforming your relationship with alcohol, really leaving it behind in the rear view mirror for once and forever more.

Now it’s not for you if you are still dabbling or still trying to figure out where you want to be or maybe even still want to moderate.  

All those things are fine. But if you are beyond that and you’re like, “No, I just want to be done with this. I’m ready to invest some time and I’m ready to just make this happen.” I want you to check out nakedmindpath.com.
