Ending my Daily Alcohol Pain and joyfully living in Peace
My drinking robbed me of LIFE, not physically (although it came close), but the joy, peace, gratitude and love of a life worth living.
My attempts to not drink, to not pick up that damn first glass was a daily battle I always lost.
I thought it was me vs vodka, but the truth is it was me vs me.
Ever morning I made the decision to stop, yet every evening I drank and felt less of the woman and mother I longed to be on every level.
I know that making a heartfelt decision to change is not enough to change.
I know that willpower, control, positive thoughts and motivation don’t work and I know why, and that ‘why’ was because my focus was on ALCOHOL being the problem, when the truth was, my drinking was nothing more than an action I had learnt to believe was the solution to my problems…….
The day I suddenly become sober, when all hope was lost, I didn’t start by making any changes to the way I drank, instead I changed the way I thought – I had a moment of awareness, that opened me up to another 1000 awareness’s, as I started a different conversation, with different questions that bought to light different answers, that had nothing to do with alcohol, and I was free.
Of course I had to learn a different way of living, but that wasn’t fearful, my drunk way of living was. This was (and still is), a journey of joyful discovery, and yes I stumbled, but not around alcohol, never around alcohol, and every step was a new gift that I took forward to the life of peace and freedom I LOVE.
Now, with daily profound gratitude for the woman and mother I am, 6 years free of my alcohol pain, and living in grace and peace, I know what does work, and why, and how to deliver it to you, effortlessly.
Hi, I’m Sonia and I am The Recovery Coach, the very proud sober single mother to my one-in-a-trillion-son, Christopher, and Mama to my two ‘Girls’, my doglets Gorby & Piccalilli.
Professionally, I am the creator of The Rapid Alcohol Recovery Method, a Master Practitioner of NLP, a Master Coach, Master Of TimeLine Therapy, Mindset Master, certified Soul Plan Reading and Grace Healing practitioner, who coaches world-wide, as well as being an internationally acclaimed author on addiction & recovery & have appeared on This Morning, the BBC, in Woman Magazine and in The Daily Mail.
As a former alcoholic & binge eater for almost 28 years, I understand that the way you drink is a response to how you are feeling – maybe tired, lonely, overwhelmed – you know your reasons at any given time, and that alcohol started out as being the ‘solution’, long before it became the problem it is today.
I know that the glass of wine at the end of your busy day has the intention of making you ‘feel better’ – less stressed, to give you a little bit of peace/calm/you time.
I also know that it is no longer just a glass. I know that you feel you have no control over when you drink, that alcohol thoughts & feelings haunt your working day, and that ‘feeling better’ is very rarely, if ever, the result.
I see your confusion and I hear your silent private fears for your health, your relationships, your work and your life, and I know , completely, that all the resources you need to be free are within you right now, you just don’t know how to access them. And I do!
Delivering effortless freedom is my passion, and after almost 6 years free from my own, ‘Alcohol is the Solution’ belief, I know exactly how to guide you back to the woman you deserve to be, confident, resilient and at peace with yourself and the world.
I have a unique experience of sudden change to problem drinking, an even more unique multi layered skill set and approach to change that is enlightening, empowering and my clients enjoy a level of easy success unheard of in traditional methods and therapies.
