No Brainer!

No live broadcast this week, as I have a cold, and no one wants to see that! I'm talking about our brains on and off booze this week, and PAWS!

No Brainer!

Also, as the Seasonal Booze Madness is soon upon us - Thanksgiving, Halloween, Office Christmas Parties, Christmas...and finally New Year - I am hosting six LIVE seminars to help the newly sober, or struggling to be sober through these (sometimes stressful) event without 'taking the edge off" with booze.

There are six seminars, easy to join ,just sign up and I'll send you a link, you can join in a live Q & A, via a messaging system, or send me your questions beforehand, there are downloadable print-outs, cheat sheets, and even some recipes for mocktails in some of the seminars, plus bonus stuff for live attendees.
You will automatically get access to the replay plus materials. Once the event has been held, it will still be possible to sign up for replays.

The first one is 6th October - so quick, sign up and I'll see you there!

Why Don't We Talk?

I have a running joke with my husband - every time I want him to do something, I threaten to talk about our feelings.....that soon gets him off the couch! But there is a flip side to the hilarity..

One of the least appealing features of facebook, is the prompt to share "memories" - especially if you would rather forget..

Side Effects.

I love those commercial from Big Pharma that show wonderful new 'cures' and then list all the things that can go wrong - including irregular bowel movement. EVERYTHING seems to affect bowel movements

What am I Against?

Sometimes people tell me that I'm "anti-alcohol". That may have been true in the early days of sobriety, but not so much now. Here's what I am against now..

Cravings?

Cravings are normal.

I get it.

But that urge to drink that seemed to come from nowhere and engulf me, was often my undoing.

Eventually, of course, I learned to deal with cravings.

On Thursday 2nd February Noon (PST), I'm hosting a live webinar to talk about cravings and how to overcome them.

If you are struggling a bit, this event might help you with some tips and advice.

If you have never attended a webinar before - here are some details

* The webinar will be held on Thursday 2nd February Noon PST and will last about 45 minutes.
* It's completely free.
* You won't need software - you just follow the link that I'll provide in an email before the event.
* You'll be able to type questions in real time via a messaging system OR
* You can email me questions beforehand and I'll answer them during the event.
* You will get a recording of the event, to watch later.

Basically, it's a live streaming video that you can view/listen to. You can see and hear me, but I won't know who is attending, unless you message me during the event.

I understand that many of you are concerned about anonymity. If you prefer NOT to message questions that other participants can see, as I said you can email questions beforehand. I'll answer the questions as best I can - without naming you of course. You can then just view the event - and no one will know that you are there.

You will be initially automatically signed up for my weekly newsletter. This is a function of the software I use - however you can immediately unsubscribe if you don't want to receive them.

The newsletter comes out once a week - and appears in your inbox from "Jackie Elliott's Sassy Life" - so there is no mention of sobriety or drinking etc - and includes articles/blogs/podcast episodes, and information about products and services, free and not free, from the website.

I hope that answers some questions - I hope that Thursday's event will be useful - last thing! - if you can't attend LIVE - everyone who signs up for the event will get the recording, so you can watch it later.

Here's the sign up link - Crush The Cravings!

The Last Day One. Ever.

Mid January is often the time that intentions, goals and resolutions seem to fade. "Real" life takes over.

You are back at work, the kids are back at school, credit card bills have started to arrive - somehow that promise you made to yourself that 2017 WILL be the year that you quit drinking...well, that doesn't seem so important right now.

I know, because I've been there myself - many times.

I often get asked - what changed? What happened that made your sobriety STICK?

To answer this (and other questions), I am hosting a live webinar. I'll talk about my sober journey and answer questions.

You are all welcome to attend. Today's event has been postponed until next week!

* The webinar will be held on Thursday 19 Noon PST and will last about 45 minutes.
* It's completely free.
* You won't need software - you just follow the link that I'll provide in an email before the event.
* You'll be able to type questions in real time via a messaging system OR
* You can email me questions beforehand and I'll answer them during the event.

I understand that many of you are concerned about anonymity. If you prefer NOT to message questions that other participants can see, as I said you can email questions beforehand.
