Why You Should Say YES and Work With Me...
Hi, I'm Patty McMahon, M. Ed in Curriculum, Instruction, Innovation, and Design
Creator of Sober Sense for Millennial Moms 21 Day Dry Challenge, How To Plan Your Sober [Blank], and P. Mac Insights on living well.
After sacrificing my evenings with my family for mommy wine time and feeling like crap the next day only to repeat the wine routine, I decided I was sick and tired of letting my hangover get the best of me.
But putting down the glass wasn't easy. After dozens of attempts to moderate, restrict, or refrain from drinking entirely, I only found myself slipping further into the bottle. I started feeling depressed. I would wake up and say terrible things to myself for 'doing it again.'
I noticed I became more easily irritated at my children and felt unable to cope with the demands of my job. I locked myself in my Classroom and cried one morning because a colleague asked me to make copies.
I was a teacher during the pandemic. Everything was messed up. I thought I deserved the right to drink my evening wine. But after googling, am I an alcoholic for the umpteenth time, I realized I needed to make a change.
Over the course of a year, I studied how to be sober as if it were my master's thesis and began not only to quit drinking but became uninterested in it entirely. I can't unlearn what I have learned about how alcohol affects your brain. I can't deny the benefits of sober living. I catch myself smiling for no reason and realize this is the feeling of lasting joy.
And as an educator, I know about the connection between our thoughts and how we learn based on current brain research. I was blown away by the science of alcohol's physiological side effects.
Did you know it takes 10 days or so to recover from one night of drinking?
And I want to teach you what I know.
All of my products, guides and programs include scientifically backed information, experiential data not only from me, but also my clients.
Now, I invite you to gain some sober sense without the glass in your hand.
