Highlights of Tips to Stop Drinking at Home Alone

Most of the advice we come across when changing our relationship with alcohol has to do with social drinking. But what if drinking at home is your trigger? Annie shares on:

  • Why We Drink: We often use alcohol to numb tough emotions. Annie Grace suggests a different approach. The Alcohol Experiment helps you reframe your thinking about alcohol and approach it with curiosity, not fear. This often reveals your true reasons for drinking.
  • Tips to Stop Drinking at Home Alone: Break the cycle with two key strategies. First, make a firm decision to not drink, even for a short period. This eliminates the constant debate about whether to have a drink or not. Second, create space between yourself and alcohol. 
  • Dealing With the Home Bar: If the alcohol in your home tempts you, it’s okay to get rid of it. Don’t feel pressured to keep it forever. Give it away, store it with a friend, or throw it out. Removing the temptation allows you to explore cravings with curiosity instead of reaching for a drink.
