Beth is a certified This Naked Mind and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, as well as a Bioenergetics practitioner, single mama, yogi, and lifelong learner. On today’s episode, this Certified Naked Mind Coach gets real about her decades of drinking, how she justified it, and why ultimately the disconnect between drinking and yoga led her to stop. She and Annie talk about how alcohol shifts from being a social tool to a reward, about the ways we deal with stress, and how life opens up once alcohol is no longer part of it. Listen to also find out why it is so hard to live a life fully awake and present. Hi, it's Annie Grace. I wanted to interrupt this podcast, I guess the end of this podcast, to say that if you are totally serious about actually truly and forevermore transforming your relationship with alcohol, really leaving it behind in the rear view mirror for once and forever more, and changing your psychology about it, we have a program called The PATH that is created specifically for you. Now it's not for you if you are still dabbling or still trying to figure out where you want to be or maybe even still want to moderate.              All those things are fine, but if you are beyond that and you're like, "No, I just want to be done with this. I'm ready to invest some time and I'm ready to just make this happen." I want you to check out NakedMindPATH.com, and join us in The PATH where you can truly make this lasting change you want in your life.

I’ve been in sales for almost 20 years. One of the things that trips me up when I try to quit drinking is going to a sales conference. There is so much drinking it feels like a non-stop party. I don’t really know how to function in those situations with alcohol and I usually end up drinking, even when I don’t want to. How do I break this cycle? Hi, I am a 37-year-old mom of two that is in the middle of getting her startup running. Life is absolutely nuts right now and I feel like the only thing that helps me keep it together is my nightly wine. But I know from being around This Naked Mind that wine isn’t actually helping. How do I get a clearer picture of what wine is actually doing to me instead of what I see it doing for me? Are you realizing that there’s something more? That you’re so excited about this change in your life - Maybe you’ve put down the bottle for good - and you just want to pay it forward. You want to help others in their moments of need move through that discomfort. You wonder what it would feel like to celebrate your own journey by paying it forward and giving back what you’ve been given. Now is the time to find out! Enrollment is now open for our coaching certification program with This Naked Mind Institute.  In just six months, you can receive the training, the resources and tools you need to become our next certified coach.

Alcohol had gone from being a reward at the end of a long day’s work to a constant struggle to moderate. To other’s she looked like she was moderating like anyone else but no one could see how exhausted she felt.  Amy felt like her hold on alcohol wasn’t adding up. There were plenty of things she loved consuming like key lime pie and she didn’t feel like she had to work so hard to avoid the bakery isle at the grocery store just to keep herself from overeating key lime pie…but she did have to avoid the wine aisle in order to keep herself from buying wine. Listen to Amy share how finding This Naked Mind helped her go from struggling with her own willpower to breaking free from alcohol and now wanting to destigmatize the conversation surrounding alcohol.

Thank you Jamie! Thank you Annie! Jamie"s story was the missing link for me to feel part of "TNM" community. while I am eternally grateful for TNM & have thus far have been successfully AF, I felt like my story was to different from the other people in the community to really participate. I don't feel like maybe I'm in the wrong place anymore! #nopinkcloud. #highfunctioningwhiledrinking&depressed

Please stop confusing alcohol as a CNS depressant with depression as a common mental illness. It's like saying it's a depressant so it presses down on a button.

This loon really undermines your message Annie. I'd love to hear what your truly knowledgeable guests say about this silly woo. She has no expertise at all and almost everything she says factually is wrong.
