Drinking was fun. Until it wasn’t. 

Drinking stopped being fun when I couldn’t control my desire for it.

Each night at around 5pm, I would pour myself a glass of wine while making dinner. 

After a long day, whether at work or taking care of my kids, I looked forward to having that drink. It numbed the stress of the day and all of the negative emotions that came with it. 

The problem was, one glass led to two, which eventually led to the whole bottle. Maybe more.

It wasn’t long before I was drinking an entire bottle regardless of how my day had gone. I wasn’t just drinking to “numb out” after a difficult day… I was drinking because the urge to drink was so strong. My desire to drink had become so intense that willpower, no matter how much, could stop me from drinking. 

My drinking became a daily habit. The habit lasted years. Every time I had a thought about drinking, I would feel that intense urge to drink. I mean, even a thought as simple as, “A drink sounds good right now” was all it took for me to start drinking. And keep drinking.

I thought I was controlling my drinking. The truth is, my drinking was controlling me.

Hi. I'm Jill.

The day I got to college at the age of 17, I had my first drink of alcohol. I couldn't believe how it made me feel - confident, outgoing and pretty, all of the things I hadn't felt without alcohol.

It wasn't long before my drinking became a regular thing. For a long time, my drinking was fun... until it wasn't. I used alcohol to feel better, to feel differently, but mostly I used it to not feel at all. It got to a point where I couldn't resist the urge to drink, no matter the consequences. My drinking was out of control.

I turned to AA because I didn't know where else to go. But AA isn't for everybody, so I wanted to understand the WHY behind drinking too much and not being able to stop.

It was then that I found the solution to my overdrinking.

Rooted in science, I will teach you how to lose your desire for alcohol, transferring all of the
energy you put towards drinking to what really lights your fire in your life.
