The Alcohol ReThink Podcast

By Patrick Fox

The Alcohol ReThink Podcast is for men who want to change their relationship with alcohol.

They either want to take a break and see what life is like without alcohol or have had enough and want to stop for good but aren't sure how.

Stopping drinking doesn't require you to give yourself a label, attend meetings or worry that you're always one drink away from starting again.

You can stop drinking because you choose to and I'm going to share with you all of the ways to stop the easy way and start reclaiming your life from the booze and never have to worry about it again.

127. Addicted parents, trauma and healing with Denita Bremer

127. Addicted parents, trauma and healing with Denita Bremer

This week on The Alcohol ReThink podcast Patrick was joined by Denita Bremer.

Denita is a shame and trauma coach for latter-day saint women.

Denita was born to teen parents who had struggles with drugs and alcohol. In response to the trauma in her upbringing Denita developed a coping mechanism which was to be a ‘good learner’.

In this episode we discuss the impact of being brought up by parents with addiction, how she survived, the impact that had later in life and how she healed those traumas which led her to create the work she does in the world now. 

Some of the cool things they talk about in this episode are:

- Underage drinking & having conversations around it

- How our upbringing influences our own parenting styles (positively and negatively)

- The importance of connection and the impact of being emotionally absent

- How we form (false) beliefs in childhood that play out in later life

- “The strengths that got you here are now holding you back”

- How we use alcohol and drugs as an attempt to self-soothe and regulate

- Working through trauma

- Cultivating compassion for yourself and your past

- Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional

123. How To Tell Your Mates You’re Taking a Break from Alcohol

Are you worried about telling your mates you’re not drinking or taking a break?

Do you come up with every reason under the sun for not drinking except for the real one?

In this week’s episode of The Alcohol ReThink podcast, Patrick is discussing ‘how to tell your mates you’re stopping or taking a break from alcohol.’

You can expect to discover some of the fears that can hold you back and what can happen when you finally open up about your decision.

He also shares why he thinks speaking your truth and letting others be wrong about you and your choices is important.

Some of the cool things he shares are:

- People can’t argue with your truth

- Sobriety is a beautiful journey of self-discovery

- Write down your fears about telling your mates

- The clearer you are on why you’re stopping the easier it’ll be to have conversations

- How people react to your decision says more about them than you

- Life is never about being perfect

- Failure leads to success…. If you let it

122. The Difference Between Using Willpower and Unlearning Desire for Alcohol with Tony Richardson

122. The Difference Between Using Willpower and Unlearning Desire for Alcohol with Tony Richardson

On this week's episode of The Alcohol ReThink podcast, Patrick was joined by sober life coach, Tony Richardson.

Tony’s relationship with alcohol started when he joined the Royal Australian airforce at just 16 years old. Brought up in a culture where alcohol was the norm, Tony found himself slipping into addiction.

Tony began recognising the signs that he might have a problem with alcohol and after a particularly horrendous hangover, he knew something had to change.

For 8 years Tony managed to stop drinking using willpower and some of the AA philosophy. He spent those years constantly battling with himself about whether he could drink or not.

After hearing about the loss of a good friend, overcome with grief, the willpower Tony had been using was no more.

Tony's alcohol use soon went back to it's previous levels and after a few years a chance encounter with a book called This Naked Mind changed his life.

Now in his second and final spell of sobriety, Tony is no longe drinking and no longer has the battle or desire too.

Join us in this episode to find out how to go from using willpower to completely rewiring your brain.

Some of the cool things they talk about

- Unhelpful beliefs about not drinking

- Willpower is not the enemy

- Discovering why you drink instead of shaming yourself

- The patriarchy trap

- Finding ways to talk as men

- Secret drinking

- Finding the courage to say you need support

- Redefining failure

Some of the cool things he covers are:

117. Setbacks, Failures, F*ck Ups

117. Setbacks, Failures, F*ck Ups

How do you treat yourself when you drink when you say you don’t want to?

Harsh? Critical? Outright abusive?

There are so many ways and words that we use to describe not achieving a desired result. Many of them are self-defeating.

Some of the cool things he covers are:

- The importance of how you label an experience

- Why the brain focuses on the negative

- Why the brain wants pleasure

- 10 questions to reframe and rethink your experience

114. Back from the depths of alcohol with Anthony Wragg

114. Back from the depths of alcohol with Anthony Wragg

This week I am joined by an awesome guest whose journey to sobriety is nothing short of incredible.

After being given his first alcoholic drink at the age of 5, and being brought up in a home and culture that celebrated and normalised alcohol, Anthony has had to overcome some staggering circumstances in life.

A story that involves a heart attack at 41, followed by a cardiac arrest a few months later, being in a coma, having his heart stop for 8 minutes, and then a night where he wanted to end it all due to alcohol and drug use.

Anthony brings his real, raw and authentic self in an interview that is pure inspiration for anyone wanting to stop drinking.

You won’t want to miss it.

Some of the other topics they cover in this episode are:

- Exploring what beliefs he had learnt and inherited about alcohol from a young age

- Creating a sober picture diary

- The incredible support of his wife through it all

- How his once paranoid state when drinking and using disappeared in sobriety

- How having an understanding of his brain helped him to create new choices

- The sober me identity

- New habits and routines he has created since stopping

- Being thankful for each day he wakes up sober

- A willingness to prove himself wrong

- The sober toolkit he developed and what the first couple of months of sobriety have been like.

This is a truly inspirational story that proves that anyone can rethink the role of alcohol in their lives.

Are your reasons for stopping drinking or taking a break compelling?

Do your reasons continue to create motivation once you’ve stopped?

Some of the cool things he talks about are:

- Know your reasons for stopping
