From a very young age, Rob assumed drinking would be a normal part of his life forever. He drank socially and on special occasions, and from time to time he drank way too much. But, he never felt alcohol was a problem. Then, about eight years ago, he let down his guard. The idea of drinking more was presented to him and, combined with his feelings of disappointment and some pain and fear that had shown up, Rob began drinking to cover up and numb the stuff that didn’t feel good. After lots of searching for the right path to a different relationship with alcohol, he found This Naked Mind. A participant in the very first Live Alcohol Experiment, Rob went from having a constant and desperate desire to drink to having no interest in alcohol whatsoever. And, as a This Naked Mind coach, he now helps others make the same shift he did.
If you asked me about the one thing that makes This Naked Mind so different from anything else, I would have to say emotion. It is the emotion when people feel really ready to make a change, when they’ve had that mindset shift, when they’ve gone through all the materials and the methodology and they get this feeling that it’s not that they never get to drink again it's that they never have to drink again. And, interestingly, according to all sorts of new research, it is emotion, especially positive emotion, more than anything else that predicates how long a change will stick, how long it will last. It is emotion. When you feel excited about a change in your life. When you feel thrilled you’re making this new difference, instead of feeling deprived like you’re missing out, everything changes. And it really makes it that This Naked Mind can stick for the long term. If you want to know more about how to truly change your emotion around drinking, I want you to join me at nakedmindpath.com. It is the path to changing your emotion and changing your feelings and really finding freedom in your relationship with alcohol.
