Dr. Gina Slejko, an associate professor at Colorado State University, joins Annie Grace to discuss how her self-awareness around alcohol led her to choose a life free from it. Dr. Slejko thought she had a normal relationship with alcohol from her childhood until well into her 40s. Even once she was drinking 2-3 glasses a night, everyone reassured her this was normal. Annie Grace and Dr. Gina Slejko dive into conversation about the role of motivation in our behaviors, alcohol as a gateway drug, and how prolific alcohol is in our culture.
I am so excited to announce our newly recalibrated signature program – The PATH: Freedom Accelerated. This 90-day program is designed to make freedom from alcohol quicker, more accessible, and more affordable than ever before. Imagine if just 90-days from now you discover a new freedom without feeling like you’re hanging onto willpower by your fingernails, without feeling deprived or like you are missing out, and without shame, guilt and blame.
The PATH: Freedom Accelerated provides a guided, almost hypnotic, sequence of content that speaks not only to your conscious mind but also to your subconscious – actually changing your desire for a drink. Plus, you will receive daily accountability and support from our coaches and our community. If you feel like you have lost control of your drinking, there is a solution – One that’s easier than you might think, and doesn’t involve rules, missing out, or deprivation. I would love for you to join us. Go to NakedMindPath.com to learn more.
