“I started drinking around the age of 14 and drank throughout my teens, thinking it was cool and fun. I had a break from it when I had my 3 children in the 80’s but after a very long messy divorce my drinking went from fun to misery. I was drinking more than a bottle of wine a night, on a daily basis. I no longer felt drinking was a choice but a necessity to sleep and to black out traumatic memories from an abusive marriage. Several years down the line, I am now in a happy relationship. However, I still felt anxious a lot of the time. I went to the doctors and he soon recognised that I was self medicating to sleep using alcohol. He wanted to put me on sleeping pills and anti-anxiety medication but me being me (not a great lover of long term medication) thought there must be another way. I decided after some internet research to try a month off the drink for charity with Just Giving and after putting my challenge on Facebook, I received a pop up advertisement from OYNB. I decided that this could only help me on my journey so I signed up to the 28-Day Challenge. In hindsight, this was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. The support from the OYNB Challengers Facebook group and the daily emails was so valuable and advice on books to read and changing your mindset meant that I completed my challenge without too much difficulty. Undecided in what to do next, I had a couple of drinks over Christmas and New Year but I quickly realised that my anxiety levels started to increase again and my quality of sleep went down hill. So I upgraded to the 365-Day Challenge and after I passed the 90 day mark, the magic that everyone talks about started to happen for me. I completed the MasterMind course, and with my brain feeling less foggy, I signed up to do a diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and NLP Life Coaching which I will finish in July. I would never have done this if I was still consuming alcohol on a daily basis. Not only have I got my zest for learning, and my life in general back but my energy levels have increased, my skin and hair are in better condition and my sleep is much better quality. I enjoy holidays and days out now for what fabulous sights I see, rather than wasting my days in bars or being hungover. My quality of life overall is so much better. Do I have the occasional down day Yes, but I now accept my emotions for what they are, good or bad. I don’t suppress or block them out with alcohol.” - Sue If you want to join Sue in taking that first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol and watch your entire life transform around you, you can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.

Massive congrats to one of our 365+ Legends Karl for standing up and talking about his experience… The number 1 influencing factor for alcohol consumption in the UK is feeling pressured by friends, and it's exactly why Karl, and so many others socially isolate themselves in a bid to give up drinking. Simply because they don’t realise there is a better way.. The truth is, you don’t have to face the ‘beer’ pressure from your friends or miss out on social events, and you really can enjoy life more when you take a break from the booze. In Karls own words “I just want to tell you guys who are thinking about taking the OYNB challenge that... an alcohol free life is not daunting. Don’t feel like you’re missing out on loads of stuff, you can still do lots. Without support from Ruari, Andy and the OYNB team, I’d have never got to where I am. My bond with my daughter is better than ever and I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been. You can still have fun socially, there is alcohol free drinks out there, they do help. And it will change your life. You can do it guys!” -Karl If you want to join Karl and take that first step to getting your drinking under control you can apply to join our exclusive 28 Day Challenge.

Meet Karl Elliott, one of our 365+ Legends. We couldn’t be more proud of you Karl No grit no glory! “I’d been drinking since 14 years of age. A very heavy drinker for 15 years. After the breakup from my daughters mum I went into self destruct. 614 days ago this all came to and end when I decided I didn’t want to do it no more. I realised that I needed to quit alcohol, it had given me nothing in 20 years except heartbreak and misery. 35 years old living with my parents forever skint, no prospects of living in a home of my own. It was time to start a new life build a new me. My daughter is a massive reason for me to change my life. I had no money to take her places, that was my beer money. Clock watching somedays, waiting for her home time so that I could get to pub for my fix. All that has changed and I’m now bonding better than ever with her. I’m also seeing her enjoying time with me as we have money and energy as its not all been wasted on alcohol. We’re even going out doing things that we never done before like going for walks along canal. Going to the cinema watching her smile at movies, something I never noticed before. I just want to tell you guys, who are thinking about taking the OYNB challenge that.. an alcohol free life is not daunting. Don’t feel like you’re missing out on loads of stuff, you can still do lots. There is alcohol free drinks out there, they do help. And it will change your life. I’m in the best shape of my life. I went out to buy a t-shirt today, I bought a size small and it fits me perfectly. I’ve never been in a small, I’ve always been in a large. Without support from Ruari, Andy and the OYNB team I’d of never got to where I am.

“I awake with yet another hangover from hell, full of remorse, shame, guilt and anxiety. Once again I had drank too much during a day out with “The Boys” at the football. Once again, my wife had endured a torrent of unprovoked, verbal abuse on my return home because I disagreed with something she said. Enough was enough, I could not go on living like this and something had to change to save my marriage (which was perfect apart from when I was full of alcohol) and to save me from ending up in the gutter as well as doing severe damage to my health. I had been a heavy drinker since I was 18 and I was now 53. I could not go on like this. I had previously completed a OYNB 28 Day Alcohol-Free Challenge while reading Andy and Ruari’s book. I was amazed at the difference I felt after those 28 days and carried on to 34 days. Then a weekend away at Wembley was on the cards and I was “back on it” for a week. So on that Monday, knowing how good and effective the OYNB approach was, I signed up for the 90 Day Challenge. Since finishing my challenges, the changes I have experienced have been amazing; 1. I no longer live my life through a constant, hungover haze. I have become more productive and feel 100% present in most situations. 2. I have learned that alcohol NEVER made anything better, only worse. We do not need alcohol to congratulate, celebrate and commiserate. These times are best experienced without alcohol as they remain as clearer memories after the time has passed. 3. I have more confidence in myself now. I used to use alcohol as a crutch in social situations. This resulted in me getting drunk before anyone else and not being a good person to be around. What I didn’t realise was that I didn’t need alcohol to have a good time. 4. I am a lot happier with myself now as my sleep has improved which gives me more energy and more energy means more exercise. I have started running two to three 5K runs a week and now participate in the local Park Run as often as I can. I even achieved a personal best time on the Christmas Day Park Run this year!! Last year, Christmas morning would have been a dash, but a dash to deliver presents so that I could be on the beer as soon as possible! 5. I have saved over £2,000 not spent on alcohol. 6. My body shape has completely changed. All the above are just a few of the benefits of going Alcohol Free. But my main benefit is: My marriage is saved and we are back to the happy couple we were when we first met 23 years ago.” - John If you want to join John in taking the first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol this Dry January and changing your life for the better, you too can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.

“90 days alcohol free, done and dusted . I hope that these key things I’ve learnt on my journey will help others…. 1) Alcohol free beer really helps! It’s very important to reward yourself for not drinking so why not drink ‘alcohol free beer’. 2) Take your ‘alcohol free’ journey one day at a time and try not to focus on the thought that you will never drink again. 3) Read ‘The Naked Mind’. It’s one of the best books that I have read on this topic. 4) Decide that drinking in moderation is not an option. I feel that for me, life before OYNB was like having to wait for life to begin. Most nights I would drink two or three beers and each day I would think about getting home so that I could have a beer or two. Weekends were pretty much the same although I would normally have a few additional drinks. It felt like everything I did gave me an excuse to drink. I would have a bad day, then I would drink. If I had a good day, I would drink. If I would play sport, I would drink. If I went out for dinner, I would drink. If I stayed at home, I would drink. Now I don’t live each day waiting to be able to have a drink or wait for the weekend so that I can have a few more drinks or wait for the next opportunity to get wasted. I do enjoy my alcohol free beer very much knowing that I can have a couple of drinks and still be present with my kids and be able to drive them to places or pick them up if need be. I can see a visible difference in my photos from day 1, after spending that day skiing, and my photo that I took close to day 90. I would like to offer my grateful thanks to all in this group, especially those of you that have struggled. Your lessons have been invaluable. I haven’t signed up for the 365 Day challenge yet but am committed to never drinking again.” - Mark Trevena If you want to join Mark in taking that first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol and watch your entire life transform around you, you can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.

Massive congratulations to one of our 90 Day Heroes, Netta who has completely reversed her declining health and re-invigorated her life heading into retirement! "I was the Chief Executive of a Hospice, a job I loved but which meant very long hours and a commitment to my job which meant that even on holiday my phone was always on and I was nearly always on call. As such, my relationship with alcohol was moderate and managed until my husband and I took early retirement 4 years ago. We both gave up our stressful jobs and chose to live in Perthshire Scotland for 6 months of the year in winter and in the Dordogne France for 6 months in the summer. An idyllic life with little or no responsibility but our freedom to live our lives away from the stresses and strains of working life resulted in a 6 o’clock habit of pre dinner drinks and wine with dinner most nights of the week. Whilst I was loving life in retirement I recognised that my days were changing around a dependency on alcohol in the evenings. At the same time I got a shock when my routine medical checks showed that my health instead of improving in retirement was suffering and I was clear that something had to change. I found OYNB as I struggled to self moderate and changed my life : I used to wake up most mornings feeling hungover and wracked with self loathing . ⏰I used to waste my life planning my days and evenings around alcohol and how I could ensure my evening fix of wine I used to be sad I am 120 days into my OYNB challenge and my life has been transformed. I wake each morning full of life and vitality I wake each morning aware and centred around who I am and where I am going. ‍I exercise each morning and evening I don’t feel guilty ❤️ I love life and I am happy I am mindful and meditate at 6 o’clock every evening at gin o’clock. I am grateful I am healthy with normal blood pressure , cholesterol and have a lovely healthy liver Thanks to OYNB I finally have the courage, support and motivation to continue on this happy journey to 365 days and beyond . I never want to and have no desire to drink alcohol again. I cannot recommend this OYNB challenge highly enough and thank Andy , Ruari, the OYNB team and the OYNB tribe often enough for giving me my life back - Netta If you want to join Netta in taking that first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol and watch your entire life transform around you, you can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.

“DAY 365!! Today marks so much more than a year off alcohol! I’m celebrating the life I’ve got back, after giving up so much away to alcohol for so long. I didn’t even realise a year ago that anything was missing. I had accepted a really under par version of what was ‘normal’ to me - but after a heavy Christmas last year, I knew something had to change and so thought I’d start by cutting out alcohol for a while. I had started drinking at a young age, which gradually merged into a habit that I gave too much time to, too regularly. I now realise that I was attracted to alcohol to manage struggles with my mental health. Over the years this included: social anxiety and shyness, depression, undiagnosed PTSD, living with an eating disorder, stress, general anxiety and all-round fearfulness, compounded by huge feelings of inadequacy and not being ‘enough’. Drinking went from being a crutch to eventually taking centre stage of all activities. Throughout this year, OYNB has enabled and empowered me to essentially ‘start over again’ without booze. A second chance to construct my life and my identity in an authentic way. The OYNB community provides a hugely positive space for people from all over the world who for whatever reason are taking a break from drinking. Everyone is in it together, sharing daily inspiration on how to live life better. I could talk all day about the benefits I’ve seen over the last year, but to name just a few: The amount of TIME I have regained from not drinking, being anxious and hungover feels like such an amazing gift! OYNB has helped me to fill that time wisely, through their amazing online coaching programmes, encouraging goal setting and events. For example, I’ve found out what’s really important to me by exploring my values and beliefs during the OYNB mastermind course. I’ve trained and done a Spartan race with the OYNB team in Iceland, a successful physical and mental challenge I would never have considered in the past. Secondly, clarity of mind. This year I have proven to myself that I can face life’s challenges, big or small, and keep a straight head. I’ve faced impossible, stressful and tragic situations, which being alcohol-free has helped me massively to remain calm and make the right decisions. What has also helped is proactively caring for my mental health, as much as physical, through regular exercise, daily meditation (something I never knew about before joining OYNB), sleeping better and generally being kinder towards myself. Finally, through more positive thought patterns and better control of my mind, I at last feel comfortable, relaxed and confident in my own skin. This applies in everyday life and also when I have been to hen-dos, weddings, holidays and other social events without drinking. I am happier than ever before, being me! I actually had no idea of the extent of personal transformation I could achieve with OYNB, I just knew I could do with a break from alcohol. What an unexpected blessing that it has totally changed my life, relationships, mindset and perspective for the better. I can’t give enough thanks to the team at OYNB and all of the amazing members! “ Madeline We’re so proud of Madeline and the transformation she has achieved to a more relaxed and confident woman.

Three years ago I finally got back control over my drinking and I’ve never been happier. I wasn’t an alcoholic or anything but I was very much living the stereotypical city life. Found myself out on the booze anywhere from two to five times a week and never really felt I had a problem, I guess in today's culture it is seen as a normal thing to do after work. Not that there is anything wrong with this lifestyle but as time went by it started to take a real toll on my life... My family and friends noticed a dip in my energy levels and I found myself living with a hangover more regularly than I would have liked. As a result my performance at work dropped giving me unnecessary pressure from my colleagues. I spent numerous weekends in bed feeling sorry for myself... Tired and hungover trying to play catch up with my sleep. Missing all kinds of important moments and events with friends and family because I was tired. And noticing that even simple tasks like climbing the stairs were starting to leave me out of breath. That was a harsh reality check considering I used to be a professional athlete. To fix these problems I tried changing my diet and exercise routine, I tried all sorts of pills and potions, anything in the hope that I wouldn’t have to accept what I already knew… I was just ignoring the elephant in the room, the root cause of the effects I was feeling - alcohol. When I realised I needed to go alcohol free I immediately got worried about the social pressure that would come with it. “Just have one drink, it won’t do any harm” “Don’t be such a lightweight, everyone else is having one” I could already hear my work colleagues and friends questioning my decision. This made me curious as to whether I actually had a problem because I was so worried about even starting. The truth is everyone experiences it...peer pressure is a difficult thing to deal with. I knew that I had to be prepared for this. But being prepared with a busy working life and a family to look after meant there wasn’t much t

“7 months alcohol free today... and if you'd have said that to me at the beginning of this, I'd have found that extremely hard to believe as I sat there depressed, trying to piece together yet another blackout induced bender that filled me with immense shame and anxiety. Physically and emotionally I was wrecked. From years of not being able to just enjoy a couple... (having no handbrake we'd call it). I was stuck on a loop, heading from one weekend to the next, relying on alcohol to give me a false confidence in which I have since come to learn it destroyed. Drinking wasn't all bad, as I had some really fun times but I certainly wasn't happy. I was constantly robbed of energy, suffering wild emotions as I muddled on with a depression and anxiety I didn't really understand or truly see. It took my lust for life, killed my creativity and I see now I let it take so much of my time. I didn't have a clue who I actually was anymore. I sat there looking at pictures of people who'd given up drinking and thought ‘can I do this’ I didn’t know anyone else who had attempted a challenge like this, but I knew I had to do something drastic to change my life, so I decided to take a punt and sign up for the whole year - the 365 Day Challenge as I knew it had to big enough to move me into action. It was one of the most significant decisions of my life. In the last 7 months it's been a roller coaster of emotions, some of it raw as I've opened up to my friends, family and to myself. I've achieved more in the last 7 months than I have in the last 7 years as I threw myself into the OYNB philosophies and challenged myself in so many ways. I soon learned this wasn't just about my relationship with alcohol but how I wanted to live all aspects of my life. I fell in love with exercise, lost two stone through a combination of running, gym, spinning, and boxing. I ran in the Spartan races with some of the other OYNB members and completed the coveted Trifecta. I started to enjoy running long distances and completed a number of races. I took myself back to school and studied two evening courses at the local arts University and am planning to launch my new photography business soon. I've got into things that were alien to me before like meditation, yoga and cold showers. I am so much more relaxed, focused and filled with positivity. For the 1st time in a long time I can say I've started to find confidence. I love who I am, who I'm becoming and am excited for all that the future brings. Last year was about changing my mindset but this year is about me smashing it, embracing change and being open to new possibilities. I'm fascinated to try further avenues of OYNB, exploring the possibilities of a mastermind course or some coaching as I hope to work towards figuring out my true north and work towards a life in which I am time rich and can spend doing the things that make me happy with the people I love. I've been blown away by the incredible OYNB tribe (Facebook community) who have been absolutely inspirational in their advice, encouragement and friendship which I've not seen anywhere else like it. I've met some amazing people online through this group and in person at Spartan. I'm so glad to be a part of it and to help give hope to others like me. It's time to start living the life I deserve and thanks to OYNB I have the courage to go after it. There is a great strength in overcoming things as I learn everything I've ever wanted is on the other side of fear. It's amazing and if you're reading this then know if I can do it then so can you. Take that first step and begin as you have no idea where it will take you but it will undoubtedly be amazing.” - Brian If you want to join Brian in taking the first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol and changing your life for the better, you too can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.

Not only has Frances given up alcohol this year, she’s also used the habit change principles in our challenges to give up smoking aswell! And is now experiencing the life-changing benefits that comes with giving up the UK’s 2 biggest vices. We couldn’t be prouder ☺️ “In 2018, I was a member at OYNB and achieved four and a half months alcohol-free. Prior to joining OYNB I was not a daily drinker but when I did drink, I drank to get drunk and had no off switch. My hangovers made me so unproductive and I felt like they were becoming too much of a problem. I was wasting the whole day after drinking laying around, not getting anything done and I knew I needed to stop this. I finished my initial challenge with OYNB before Christmas 2018 and made the mistake of toying with the idea of moderation. The first few drinks after being alcohol-free for so long were disgusting, my whole body shuddered at the revulsion of the first few sips. Instead of stopping right there, I persevered and before I knew it was back to my old self. Over Christmas I was drinking on a daily basis: I was so busy with social occasions as it was the holidays. I would have drinks at one party and then wake up hungover the next day. I had to attend another social occasion the following day so I would drink again to take the edge off and so the cycle began. As you can imagine, after a week of this, I was feeling rubbish. My skin was awful, I felt bloated, sluggish and anxious. Enough was enough, I was hating feeling like this. I had to take back control so I decided to return to OYNB. Since starting back on my challenge I have felt great again: I am sleeping so much better and not waking up with the 3am ‘dread’. My skin is better. I feel much less anxious. I have started running again, completed my first 5km of 2019 and have been practising Yoga everyday. I have also stopped smoking, the list goes on! The days have literally flown by. One of the greatest sources of comfort during this process was the other members of the OYNB Challengers Facebook group. They were always there to encourage me when I needed it, and were never judgemental.” - Frances If you want to join Frances in taking the first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol this Dry January and changing your life for the better, you too can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS SALLY WILKINSON -365 LEGEND TODAY!! Thank you for being such an amazing inspiration and support to us and the rest of the One Year No Beer tribe! ❤️ “I discovered OYNB on Boxing Day 2017 through a friend and joined their wonderful community 3 weeks later. Like everyone i had some really hard days where you convince yourself that life is so dull when you are not drinking and you are left with a foreboding sense of.. ‘is this it... Is this all I have to look forward to’ It was so important for me to look at the people who were way ahead of me, the OYNB 365 legends...I did struggle to believe them that life was better, I still couldn’t imagine that for myself, but there were so many of them...surely they couldn’t all be wrong I got to 30 days then amazed myself by signing up for the 90 days.. My husband had ‘accidentally’ become AF...at first to support me, but he too was feeling the benefits. And here we are now at day 365! It has truly been amazing. There are obvious benefits like simply feeling better, no hangovers, more proactive, especially in my business, losing weight, saving money. However, its the not so obvious benefits that have surprised me. The biggest is that I am more present, especially at home and with my children, I just remember everything, every conversation, every smile.. I am no longer wishing they would go to bed so I could ‘relax with my wine!’ I know my feelings are now true..whether that may be high or low..they are real. People do give you grief, some just don’t understand, but the longer you are alcohol free the more people come round to it and the more people become curious. I was worried that i would lose a lot of clients if I gave up drinking..I worried they would think i was boring, but it has had the opposite effect...it has inspired so many of them to try it. I really truly believe that you have to give yourself the gift of time..the gift of being alcohol free for a decent amount of time. How can you even make an informed decision if you have never experienced what life could be like without alcohol if you never allow yourself to try it...properly. Believe me it is amazing” Sally transformed her relationship with alcohol and her whole life transformed around her… If you want to join Sally and take that first step to transform your relationship with drink you can apply to join our exclusive 28 Day Challenge.

One Year No Beer | Transform Your Relationship With Alcohol

The biggest challenge with creating any positive change in your life is breaking old habits... it’s no different when you’re trying to stop the drink. Maybe it’s resisting the glass of red that calms your stress levels after work, or trying to avoid the weekend binge that leaves you feeling slow and sluggish. Just removing alcohol from your cupboards and fridges isn't going to have a lasting effect. It’s more of a cover up and thats why the majority of people cave in to their temptations so quickly. The real key is to break those old habits and create new, more powerful ones... rewire your whole relationship with drink so it is no longer a crutch to you. Not giving it up forever, but regaining control over how and why you consume it Over the last few years our revolutionary challenges have helped over 26,000 people in 120 countries achieve just that, getting back control over their drinking. More so than that they all saw different areas of their life change like: ✅Dropping the stubborn fat... Clearing up their skin and sending their confidence through the roof ✅Less anxiety… Alcohol is a proven depressant and only covers the effects of anxiety, a feeling that is replaced by a hangover and even more anxiety by the morning. Finally break out of that cycle and get a brand new lease of life. ✅Keeping more of their hard earned cash in the bank… Take a quick minute to add up how much you spend on booze a month and imagine how else you could be spending that money... an exotic holiday, a new kitchen or even a new wardrobe! ✅Improved productivity and motivation… Finding the energy to achieve things you never thought possible, smash through the goals that have been set aside over the years and spend more quality time with your loved ones. Our 28 day challenge walks you step by step through the barriers that usually make it so hard for people to give up alcohol. Getting back control over your drinking shouldn’t mean missing out on social events, awkwardly making excuses in lunch meetings or having to put up with friends tempting you to “just have one” Our award winning challenges have a 96% success rate in helping people just like you take a break from drinking and improve their relationship with alcohol Over the next 28 days we will show you exactly how to survive ANY booze session completely alcohol free and give you all the tips, tricks and support to overcome any challenges that pop up along the way. We’re so confident that you will make an improvement in your life, that you can get started completely risk free! If you haven’t seen the full benefits of the programme after 28 days, we’ll give 100% of your money back with no questions asked. Are you ready to discover just how much you can improve your life in as little as 28 days Then take that first step and find out more here https://www.oneyearnobeer.com/takethechallenge

“It was a throwaway line in Anne Kreamer’s ‘Going Grey’: what I learned about beauty, sex, work, motherhood, authenticity, and everything else that really matters that triggered this journey for me (FYI she was the Chief Creative Officer of Nickelodeon and is a total badass). In her memoir, she described the moment she realised she needed that glass of wine at the end of the day and how that realisation scared her enough to go cold turkey. It resonated. Of course – that was in 2011 and I was smack in the middle of the physical slog of early working motherhood and wading through the fog of grief after losing my mom, brother, and sister-in-law in a plane crash. So I kind of put the thought up on a mental shelf and carried on. For years. But deep down, I couldn’t forget her ah-ha moment. And eventually, I began to admit to myself that I, too, needed a glass of wine at the end of the day. And to work up the courage to socialise at school events. And to be more “me” at work events. And to bond with friends. And to have fun. And to deal with kids who were testing my last nerve. And, and, and. All those ands made me deeply uncomfortable. So eventually my journey began. Maybe it was 2015 2016 I don’t know exactly. I would do Dry January or dry Lent or Whole 30 or some kind of “challenge” to get my weight down, which invariably involved zero alcohol. But as soon as it was over (and often before), I’d find an excuse to have a glass or two of wine, which would lead back to the nightly habit. Giving it up completely seemed impossible. And way, way too un-fun. Cut to May 31, 2018. I was too fat for my fat shorts, lethargic, stressed at work and feeling constantly behind and exhausted. I watched myself get snippy with my kids for moving too slow at bedtime, and I realised it was because I needed to get to that glass of wine to relax. That was the last straw. I knew it was time.

“From the outside, my life looked pretty darn perfect. Everything I needed or could ask for, was available. Married 14 years to a great guy, I have 2 amazing Jack Russell Terriers, multiple homes, good health and an active lifestyle. From a ‘country club’ lifestyle, to ‘home on the range’, or wherever my travels would take me. A truly blessed life, is mine. But was it really.. In my late 30's, early 40's, what started out as ‘normal’ or acceptable drinking, the social occasions, romantic dinners, wine tastings/pairings, wine tours, wags and wine, etc, became a nightly beverage or bottle of red wine. Though alcohol had always indirectly or directly effected my life, I never thought I would fall into the tranquil stupor of its grip - a state of near unconsciousness or insensibility. As life turned up the heat, drinking became my coping mechanism for everything. From celebration to tragedy. Maybe the next drink would bring back love, health and happiness I was only doing what others and society did on a regular basis. It was considered normal, encouraged, ok, if not an obligation. In fact whenever I had tried to cut back or quit, the immediate reaction was “Why, That is Boring, or Your No Fun." As they say, ‘alcohol’ ... because no good story, starts with a salad.. Though I had tried counselling, antidepressants and other support groups, I always found myself slipping back into the socially acceptable lifestyle, with a smile on my face, unresistingly allowing alcohol to destroy my life. I knew I wanted and needed to quit. I didn't want to waste this amazing life that was given to me, anymore. No more self pity, destructive thinking, no more shame. It was time! ‘You either Get busy living, or get busy dying’. The difference I found with the One Year No Beer Program, was connection and focus. You look forward.

You deal with your feelings and work through the tough stuff. You make a plan. You get comfortable with the uncomfortable. You accept encouragement and help from others.

Massive Congratulations to Lauren, one of our 28 Day Champions Like most of us, Lauren didn’t think the amount she was drinking was affecting her life… until she took a break “My husband and I are very social and I suddenly found myself having a drink most nights of the week - sometimes just one, but often more. I was starting to feel really down, tired and generally lazy and found I wasn’t really enjoying drinking the way I used to. I’d wake up at 3am most mornings with anxiety and feeling angry at myself for drinking...again. I’d promise myself that I wouldn’t have any that day but by 6pm there again would be some reason to have ‘just one’. I was tired of the same old cycle and decided I needed a break... I was lucky to come across One Year No Beer at the same time, and signing up for the 28 day challenge was the best thing I could have done. Today is day 28 - I’ve achieved what I set out to do and honestly, I feel amazing. I have so much more energy, sleep like a rock (no more anxious awakenings!), my skin is better, I’ve dropped a bit of fat and have been able to wake up early to do yoga nearly every morning with little effort. Going to extend my challenge to 90 days because I’m absolutely loving it. Anyone who has been thinking about cutting back, I definitely recommend giving the 28 day challenge a go. October is around the corner - perhaps make it a sober one” Lauren Grimwood If you want to join Lauren in taking that first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol and watch your entire life transform around you, you can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.

“I first experimented with alcohol at age 13 or 14. In my teens and early 20’s drinking normally took place at the weekends. Sundays were spent in a heap on the couch watching TV and praying for the headache to go away. I’ve always loved a good party, always wanted to be part of the celebration. I lived for drinking games, shots and afterparties. It was how I started to define myself; “partygoer, loves a good night out, always up for a laugh”. But somewhere down the line, the stumbles, embarrassing stories and drinking until the next morning started to get old and somehow didn’t seem as funny as it once was in my early 20’s. Three years ago my mum passed away quite suddenly. I was 27 years old. Although she had been chronically ill for well over ten years, her death was totally unexpected. We did not have a typical mother-daughter relationship, although we loved each other fiercely, we fought all the time. We were both stubborn, quick-tempered and loved to get the last word in. Our fractured relationship got worse when I moved to Australia for a year. But when I returned home I made it my priority to mend old wounds and re-build a connection with her. So we started to make it a habit to ring each other weekly, but I missed her call one Saturday evening as I was out with friends. On Sunday I was too hungover to call her back, I just kept thinking I’ll ring her tomorrow when I don’t feel so terrible. But I never got to make that last phone call. After she died, my drinking habits didn’t drastically change but my mindset had totally shifted. When I went out to drink, I really drank. There was no off switch and no stopping me. I was trying cover up how miserable I felt inside, to fill the emptiness and to find some distraction. As this went on not only were my hangovers getting worse but I started to become crippled with anxiety. “What had I said What did I do Why did I drink so much” thoughts like this played on repeat in my head for days after the actual night out. The next day I couldn’t even answer the phone or join in on the group texts for fear of finding out if I did something mortifying again. Because, when I was drunk I became a talker. I was always speaking without thinking and often hurting those around me especially my boyfriend. What seemed funny when I was inebriated was often crass and cruel when I was sober. On my 29th birthday I decided that I was going to give up drinking for awhile. It took 6 months for that plan to take fruition. At this point I was so unhappy with myself, I had gained weight, lost confidence, stopped exercising consistently and felt totally lost. When an ad for OYNB popped up on my social media it didn’t take long for me to sign up. This was exactly what I was looking for! I dived right in and got amongst the quit lit, the podcasts and the members group. These avenues provided me with so much support, comfort and encouragement every single day. To know there are so many other people out there with a story like mine or who have felt the same way as I have is truly amazing. The daily emails from Ruari and Andy continue to provide food for thought. I really love how the tone shifts after day 90 and becomes one of reflection and building up the skills and hacks for life beyond the challenge. So far I have achieved 4 unbroken months, including an AF Christmas, New years, a family holiday and my boyfriends 30th birthday pub crawl! But more so, I have re-learned how to socialise and actually enjoy the party without hiding behind a glass of wine. Although I’ve had such a promising start, its not always easy and I have had tonnes of awkward moments and have faced some negativity when I mention I’m not drinking. But the overall support has been pretty amazing and although my journey is only beginning I am very excited to see where it leads me.” - Clare If Clare’s story has inspired you to taking the first step to transforming your relationship with alcohol and changing your life for the better, you too can apply to join our exclusive 28, 90 or 365 Day Challenges.
