How did you wake up this morning? A can full of beans, half a can of beans or feeling like an empty can of beans that has been lying neglected in the bin for a week?
And what part did your drinking last night play in the way you feel today?
Today I am a full can of emotional beans, and half a can of physical beans, because last night was a show stopper in my life.
I finally got to bed at 3am, after driving home a very drunk friend of my son’s, who couldn’t remember his address.
I would have preferred him to stay the night, even though I would have had to sit with him (he was that drunk), but he was adamant, in the way only a totally pissed person can be, that he go home, because it is his mum’s birthday today – that poor women is in for such a treat……
When I finally made it home, I spent the next 90 minutes clearing vomit from the hall, the front steps and my Girls – yes, ladies, he had thrown up on my sleeping dogs! I mean WTF!!
Now this is a lovely, kind, funny, thoughtful, delight of a young man, and this episode was totally out of character. Last night he just lost the alcohol plot, in exactly the same way that I, and you, are lovely, kind, funny, thoughtful, delights of women, who have also just lost the alcohol plot.
I lost my alcohol plot for 28 years, yet I am effortlessly, peacefully now safely back in the loving, safe home base of me.
And the irony of last night is not lost on me. I am fully aware that last nights scenario could easily have been me, probably was me in the past. But now that my Golden Ticket in life son is an adult, that it would have been my son, getting me to bed, making sure I had water, putting a container by my bed for me to be sick in.
That my son would have slept badly worrying about me, ashamed, disappointed and embarrassed by me, (as I would have been 100 times more when I finally woke up), and yet I live in the grace of knowing that will never happen again.
So, how do I feel this morning?
Happy, blessed at peace, proud, joyful, profoundly grateful and a little bit tired. And whilst tiredness passes, the other emotions never do, because yet again, I was the mum my son needed, and the surrogate mum his friend desperately needed.
The mum who just got up in a ‘crisis’ and ‘did’, both capable and calm.
The wonder of the mother I had so long dreamed of being. The mum who took over, stepped up, who loved and cared, without stress or trauma, for me, and for these incredible young men, and all because I am sober.
This woman is who you are too, its just that in your drinking pain you have temporarily lost sight of her.
But only for as long as you decide to lose sight. In the Rapid Alcohol Recovery Method, I have developed a trailblazing new approach to the world of recovery from alcohol pain, that comes from a different perspective, using a compelling combination of my research, training’s and supported by the powerful skills and practices as a Master Practitioner of NLP, a Transformational Coach and Master Coach, to deliver a complete, holistic toolkit for life long change to you drinking.
My work is not for women who want to be saved. It is for women who want to be empowered. For women who want the return to their self-trust and self-love to own the changes to their drinking they make, and to know that no matter what life throws at them, they will stay in the pace and grace of freedom from any alcohol ‘need’.
If my message resonates with you, and you are ready to commit to stepping back into the woman and mother you truly are, the golden opportunity is here, waiting for you.
I have used everything I have learned on my journey back to a women I adore, understanding that your struggle with alcohol has very little to do with alcohol and everything to do with your ‘Alcohol is the Solution’ belief.
I know that willpower, control, motivation, avoidance and all the old tried and failed methods don’t work, and so do you, because you have tried and ‘failed’ over and over again. And I also know what does work, effortlessly.
So if now is your time, take the only hard step to change and reach out to me, today. All you have to do is hit reply with a ME, and I will do the rest.
Have a peaceful day and be kind and gentle with your lovely self.

If you would like to understand more about my journey from 28 years of alcoholism, to peaceful freedom, take a look at my internationally acclaimed book,This Isn’t Me (click on the link HERE).I wrote it for my son, as an apology for his younger years, and as an attempt to explain the un-explainable and to let him know in the clearest way possible, that always was, and always will be, my Number One.
