What is your relationship with alcohol? Have you ever woken up with a feeling of dread, wondering what you might have done or said the night before? Maybe you've felt inner self judgement, swearing to yourself that you"re never drinking again! Or maybe you just want to try Dry January to feel healthier, look better, and see if you can do it. I myself, as an energy healer and wellbeing specialist know better! ...but that doesn't mean I don't know those feelings all too well. Maybe it zaps my energy for a couple of days, or I eat crappy processed food, or maybe the lingering effects of a couple glasses of wine have made me feel a bit down in the dumps. Either way, we know alcohol is not good for us, a poison actually, and yet we often can wait to clink our glasses with friends. Why?

In this weeks show my guest Wayne Smith and I discuss the book The Alcohol Experiment by Annie Grace and his success, weight loss and self love journey. (Spoiler alert, he lost 40+ pounds and has never felt happier!) The book has been called a game changer and is a celeb favorite designed for ANYONE who wants to challenge themselves to interrupt their habits and help take control.

Author Annie Grace covers everything you can think of to help you succeed. You will learn about your relationship with alcohol, your triggers and just how much alcohol really affects our bodies homeostasis. The book offers step by step tools with easy daily chapters, science based facts, motivation and inspiration. Wayne shares his personal experiences with over indulgence, happy hour habits and why he feels everyone should try this. *hint: better skin, better sleep, better outlook and better sex!
