Red Wine


Hello! I need help coaching myself around red wine. I’ve gotten to where I drink close to a bottle most nights. It’s not causing major negative effects in my life. I don’t feel hungover ever; however, I do think I am a little groggy sometimes and I am not showing up probably as the best version of myself. The problem is when it comes time to drink wine (5pm according to my brain), my brain tells me all of the reasons why it’s such a good idea at the time. In the moment, I believe that primitive part of my brain. I’ve tried so hard and caught myself in the middle of these thoughts recognizing that my brain is doing this and argued with myself, but in the end, most of the time, the primitive brain always seems to win. I would like to view red wine the way I view other types of alcohol which is that I could take it or leave it. I would like to take a 90-day break from drinking so that I can evaluate the effect it’s having on my life. I also have other personal and professional goals I want to work on over the next 90 days. Do I need to constrain to just one goal? I need help believing I can do this.
