Do you think about drinking alcohol more than you think about eating sandwiches? Do you spend significant amounts of time thinking about NOT drinking (Dry January, for example)? Or are you one of the many with an uneasy feeling that alcohol is no longer bringing anything good into your life, and may well be holding you back?

Therapist and sobriety expert Veronica Valli had a problematic relationship with alcohol for twelve years. She has now been sober for twenty years, and has helped countless others give up drinking.

In this episode Andrew and Veronica discuss:

⭐️ How giving up alcohol can give you the energy and freedom to be your true self.

⭐️ Why your friends may not always be your cheerleaders if you give up drinking.

⭐️ Why a drinking problem is really a symptom of another, underlying problem.

⭐️ What to do if your partner has an alcohol problem.

⭐️ Extreme social pressure to drink and how to deal with it.

Veronica Valli has worked in the field of alcohol recovery for almost two decades. She is an author, podcaster and former clinical psychotherapist.
