Episode Info:

Korean mosquitoes dined on my legs for three-weeks while I lived under the threat of Kim dropping a nuke on my head. I felt four aftershocks in Bali and thought my daughter had died when she collapsed at the airport, and I was also eaten alive in Barcelona by bed bugs. But I never got a cold. I've been back in the UK a week. So, how did I deal with my bout of ‘man flu?’ I did nothing. I sat on the settee and hoped it would magically fuck off. An attitude in stark contrast to my wife, Liza. Last night, she sprayed Colloidal Silver in my mouth and poured a strange smelling liquid into each nostril using a gravy boat as a makeshift netty pot. Then she gave me Oregano oil, a hot lemon & ginger tea, told me to rinse with Hydrogen Peroxide, and then take a steam bath with Eucalyptus and Peppermint. The next morning I was fit as a fiddle. And this got me thinking about wanting to be someone that doesn't drink alcohol. Most people approach the gig as I approach man-flu. They decide to quit drinking but don't do much else. They may pop in and out of Strive; post a few things about the weather while pressing a few ‘heart' buttons. They may read a few books and listen to some podcasts, but mainly they white knuckle it. Then you get people like Liza. They listen to the podcast and email me directly asking the question, "How did you do it? Tell me your secret." They join Strive and for the next 30+ days check-in daily, going deep, sharing, and being vulnerable. They ask plenty of questions. They post all of their triggers (especially when they drink) and ask the TTAA Moderators to help them to get to the root cause of why they drink. They read all of the books, taking notes, and then taking action on those notes, like creating and using a toolkit before deciding to drink. They take the TTAA-Life Changing Experience and any other program the likes of Annie Grace, Holly Whitaker and Laura McKowen create, delivering their secret sauce. So what’s it going to be? Are you going to lie on the couch and hope shit magically happens, like me? Or are you going to say to yourself, "I am going to beat this mother fucking thing, a take a fuckton of action like Liza?"
