408: Casey McGuire Davidson: On Giving Up Wine To Gain Clarity and Connection

av The Shameless Mom Academy | Publicerades 1/22/2020

Casey McGuire Davidson is a certified life coach, the founder of Hello Someday Coaching and creator of the “Sober Girl’s Guide To Quitting Drinking, 30 Tips To Help Get You Through Your First 30 Days”.

She works with busy, successful women who want to reevaluate their relationship with alcohol, quit drinking, and create lives they love without their nightly glass (or bottle) of wine.

She’s also a wife, a mom, a practical dreamer, recovering corporate ladder climber, retired people-pleaser and ex-red wine drinker, who's been known to crawl into bed at 9 pm and whisper "Don't worry...you're still a badass" to herself.

Casey and I met at an event recently when she approached me as a fan of the SMA.  We immediately hit it off and the second she told me that she works with moms who are reevaluating their relationship with alcohol I knew she had to come on the show.  So many moms have a silent struggle with alcohol.  I think it’s one of the most under talked about issues of motherhood.  And that is not ok.

Listen in to hear Casey share:

  • How she relied on wine to manage her emotional and mental health
  • What pushed her to attempt 100 days of sobriety
  • What red wine represented for her and her fear of giving up something she loved so much
  • How to view giving up alcohol as a positive powerful choice vs sad consequence
  • The best question to ask yourself if you’re thinking about giving up drinking
  • The pros and cons of different sobriety programs and why she believes some are better than others for women
