Download EP:469 Transcript

Samantha’s drinking seemed under control and socially accepted, so she never questioned it until an embarrassing lack of judgment (that she didn’t even remember) left her guilt-ridden and ashamed.

Tune in to find out how fully feeling her emotions helped her to make the decision to ditch alcohol for good. And what it took for her to gain the confidence she was seeking in her social life all along.

The Alcohol Experiment Book, Extended Edition

Hi. Super exciting news. So The Alcohol Experiment book is being released. Actually it got released just a few days ago with the expanded edition. What does expanded edition mean? It means that every single day throughout the book there are deep reflective journal entries that have been added with space to write which is so cool and so exciting. So you really make it your own. And, the reason I did this is because I truly believe that the deepest wisdom you will access throughout the 30 days of The Alcohol Experiment comes from within you. You know more about what’s best for you than anybody else in the entire world. And I know sometimes that can be hard to believe but when you really access your own wisdom it is so profound. So you can pick up your own copy at alcoholexperimentbook.com and check it out. It’s really powerful.

And as always, rate, review, and subscribe to this podcast as it truly helps the message reach somebody who might need to hear it today.

Highlights of An Embarrassing Lack of Judgment – Samantha’s Story

Drinking while socializing helped Samantha disguise her insecurities but it also left her with a lack of judgment and blackouts. Check out the highlights on how she turned it around:

  • Samantha tried alcohol at the age of 15 and attended weekend parties as she got older
  • In college Samantha was binge drinking 4 times a week and blacking out 3 of them
  • She always had a sense that she wanted to get her drinking under control but continued to drink as she traveled and moved to a new city
  • One night when she was drinking with coworkers she kissed another man and didn’t remember (friends told her about it)
  • She had always prided herself on her trustworthiness and loyalty to her boyfriend – Alcohol was making her someone she wasn’t
  • Guilt and shame plagued her and she began reading sober literature
  • Making amends seemed like a huge step in finding freedom so she told her boyfriend about her embarrassing night – The talk went well and they connected through stories
  • She started blogging about her experience and is open to conversations about her AF lifestyle
