Episode 228 

Listen to all episodes here. 

The purpose of this episode is to help you create a plan for yourself leading up to and after a holiday party, a get-together with friends, or a work event where you would typically drink, so you don’t.

I also talk about my social anxiety today, FOMO, what you’re really missing out on if you don’t drink, and some fun practical tips to stay a/f! 

I’m here to help you take care of yourself and protect your energy and your sobriety, whether you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert, so you don’t wake up the next morning saying, “you did it again - you drank when you said you wouldn’t” - instead, you will wake up saying - I’m so proud of myself! YAY, ME! I’m blowing my damn mind!  

What You'll Discover in this episode:

  • How to organize your thoughts to calm your nerves 
  • Why planning for socializing is beneficial in staying alcohol-free 
  • Tips to plan pre-party
  • The importance of making a plan to “get ready” for the party 
  • Tips to help you navigate social settings 
  • How to choose a reward to treat yourself with post-party
