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.

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.

In this week's episode of The Alcohol ReThink Podcast Patrick shares how you can overcome any setbacks and failures you experience along the way on your journey to sobriety.

He offers some tools and mindset shifts that can help you reframe your experiences instead of beating yourself up about them.

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

- The positives we can find from setbacks 

- 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
