Read on for my story….


About Me

I’d like to share with you my story of how, I knew I had to get control over alcohol. It was time to face the truth, and get sober.

 To be honest, when I was a drinker, I didn’t know that alcohol was highly addictive, nor that it was causing a pandemic of health problems for people like me.

What I did know though was that alcohol was causing problems in my relationships and my life. 

At some point in my life, drinking alcohol went from being something I did for fun, to being something that I did more often and for more reasons. When I was tired, stressed, feeling a bit down, feeling excited, happy…you name it, I’d pour a glass of wine for any reason. 

I’d control my drinking for a while, but would soon be back in the fridge at wine o’clock. I’m a strong-minded person, but my willpower always ran out.

I thought I took good care of myself, but I clearly didn’t. I suffered blackouts, nausea and awful feelings of guilt and remorse. I’d wake up vowing not to drink all week, only to be reaching for the bottle that evening, or days later.

I knew that I needed to do something and that what I had been doing to manage my drinking hadn’t worked. I had failed. I wanted to live a long and healthy life, and I knew this wasn’t the way.

Then one day my partner said that he’d had enough, and couldn’t live with me drinking anymore, and was leaving.

I knew that I needed to take action, but I didn’t know what to do. I was capable in most areas of my life, but alcohol had me beat. It was then that I stumbled across a fitness book that talked about how willpower never worked as a permanent solution for anything.

That was the light-bulb moment when I realized that I had been using willpower to try to control my drinking. No wonder I’d failed!

As a professional coach, I started to use my coaching knowledge to ask different questions. I realized that this was an addiction I was dealing with and I needed to look at the whole problem differently. I read over 100 books on addiction, neuroscience and psychology, and I can remember the moment that I realized that I’d figured it all out.

3 years ago, I went from worrying about alcohol… feeling miserable, ashamed and, pretty desperate, to being completely in control, confident and free from any of those horrible negative feelings.

I have been in control of alcohol ever since. I drink exactly what I want to, which for me is none.

My life improved in so many ways…ways I had never imagined,and my relationship survived and prospered.

So I decided to quit my job as an executive coach, go back to school and really learn about the science and psychology of addiction, and give other people THE PROGRAM that I wished I’d had. The Discover Sober Program is based on the unique 5 Stage CBC System.
