    The Strength for Quitting Alcohol Comes from Persistence
    http://alcoholmastery.com/the-strengt...

    Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence. Persistence is one of the best habits you can ever develop because it will help you throughout your life in a variety of different areas. Napoleon Hill said that “Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steal”. How successful you are in any of your endeavours will be largely determined by your levels of persistence and discipline.

    Yes, I still think about alcohol. And it's not just because I'm writing or talking about it every day. Some things just don't ever go. However, the way you think about things alters when you push yourself to make consistent deliberate self-directed changes in your life.

    Fear Kills More Dreams Than Failure Ever Will
    http://alcoholmastery.com/fear-kills-...

    There is no real point in worrying about something, fearing what might or might not happen. This is one of the biggest obstacles to anyone trying to quit drinking, or make any other changes in their lives… The inner circle of comfort loves predictability, repetition, uniformity… It hates fluctuation, uncertainty, or vulnerability. These cause anxiety and anxiety produces fear. As I said, mostly fear is unwarranted and it only exists in your mind. Like any other thought, fear will remain as long as you focus on it… The only way to stop fear in its tracks is to move into positive action and fear will be shown up for what it really is.

    Quit Drinking Alcohol and Taking Responsibility for Your Own Health
    http://alcoholmastery.com/quit-drinki...

    Poor lifestyle choices, such as smoking, alcohol use, poor diet, lack of physical activity and poor stress relief are key contributors in the development and progression of preventable chronic diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and several types of cancer. Almost 90% of hospital admissions and prescription costs are for treatment of chronic diseases. Fortunately, over 75% of these chronic illnesses can be treated by the choices that we make in our lives. I think that number can be pushed even higher with preventative measures, stopping smoking, quitting drinking, eating healthy, and getting regular exercise. In other words, your health is in your hands and it's your responsibility!

    Alcohol Is Not Your Friend Alcohol Is Your Enemy…
    http://alcoholmastery.com/alcohol-is-...

    The topic of today's video is looking at how alcohol affects your life, physically, mentally, spiritually,… Through every aspect of your life in fact… Now, it's not that alcohol itself is a damaging substance for your body, it's not.

    Your body is quite capable of handling small amounts of alcohol, it produces small amounts of alcohol as part of the digestive processes… But, the amount of alcohol that it takes to get drunk are super excessive. Your body has got nowhere near the capacity to deal with this.

    In the short-term, the damage can be mitigated through other physical elimination processes, through being young, or because every time you suffer the consequences of a hangover, your whole system is trying to tell you to stop through various pain mechanisms…

    But, we don't listen…

    We have to get to the understanding that alcohol is not your friend.

    I hope you enjoy this video.

    Who Are You Blaming for Your Alcohol Problems?
    http://alcoholmastery.com/who-are-you...

    It's one of the easiest things to blame other people or your environment or your talents for where you find yourself today.

    A much more productive thing would be to examine how much faith you have in your own ability to respond.

    It's in your responsibility, that 100% responsibility that you know you need, and by looking at your past mistakes. This is where you will find all the answers as to why you are where you are today.

    As soon as you start to blame anything outside yourself, you give up so much of your own power, you start to shrink back into yourself, not growing, receding.

    Stop playing the victim to the circumstances that you created.

    If You Don’t Want to Quit Drinking, You Won’t Quit Drinking Long Term
    http://alcoholmastery.com/if-you-dont...

    Today's video is about the topic of needing or wanting to quit drinking. They can be two completely different perspectives. If you don't want to quit drinking, you're going to find it very difficult to do this in the long-term. There's a big difference between wanting and needing to quit. Most of us get into quitting drinking because we have to stop, for one reason or another. We know we need to do this, but there is a reluctance to start and once we do start, a period of mourning for our loss. Sometimes this mourning period never ends. That's why you have so many people still referring to themselves as alcoholics even decades after they have taken their last alcoholic drink. What can we do?

    And there we have it...Day 365...Challenge Done!!!

    I have learned so much about so much doing this challenge, from a personal level to a professional level. It has given me a much better understanding of the subject of habit change and in particular changing the alcohol habit - extermination of the habit, to be precise. Hopefully, a lot of that has transferred out to you in these videos.

    Today's video is all about living the benefits of not drinking any more. Now, starting every day without a hangover is one thing. It's something that as drinkers we have all experienced, at one time or another. In this video I wanted to talk about what it's like to get away from the whole boozy life. What is it like to get up every morning and not have to think with a drinker's brain any more. What is it like to be free of that self-made mental cage?

    The alcohol industry, or Big Alcohol (BA), has a sophisticated and powerful marketing machine backing it up, just like cigarettes used to have, and still has in some countries… In this video were going to look at a definition of what exactly is a propaganda machine? We'll also look at how it compares to cigarette smoking and how that has changed over the years… Finally, we'll look at the WHO MPOWER measures which were designed to attempt to tackle the tobacco epidemic that is sweeping the world and how close we are to a similar set of measures to try and combat the epidemic of the alcohol drug use.

    http://alcoholmastery.com/dont-allow-...

    We are programmed from birth to look upon alcohol consumption for getting drunk, merry, tipsy, for use in celebrations, to relax, to socialize, to party, to wind-down, and so on and on. It's not just a cultural phenomenon.This happens within families. It happens among friends. In this video, we are going to look at the most obvious programming. We will look at some of the most insidious types of programming: labels. We'll look at how most of this programming is happening on a subconscious level. And we'll look at what you can do about it.

    Are You Tired After Stopping Drinking Alcohol? How Long Will it Last?
    http://alcoholmastery.com/are-you-tir...

    Today’s video is about being tired after you have stopped drinking alcohol. Some people just find that when they quit drinking they don’t get enough sleep. This is completely natural. Your alcohol habits are not built overnight and nor will they be deconstructed overnight. I talk a bit about my own struggle with sleep in the beginning, as well as tiredness. I talk about replacing the alcohol with sugary foods or drinks, how you sleep might be affected, and some suggestions about what you can do.

    Tips To Socialize After You’ve Quit Drinking Alcohol

    Published on Jul 20, 2017
    Tips to Socialize After You’ve Quit Drinking Alcoholhttp://alcoholmastery.com/tips-to-soc...

    Today we’re going to be looking at changing your social patterns to suit your new alcohol free life.
    It’s so important that you try to see your life as a whole, then take it apart, bit by bit. With those parts which have been influenced by your alcohol drinking behaviour, and there will be many of them, you have to do some reinventing.
    Sometimes this is going to be a painful process, not because of some of the things that you have to change, but because of the mind work that you have to do.
    This mind work involves altering your mindset about alcohol, about the liquid itself, but mostly about how you have allowed that liquid into your life. It involves dissecting how you have surrounded yourself by environments and people who’ve also allow that liquid to become attached to their lives. This is the one road will lead you to a life of freedom from this toxin forever, not just for a week or 30 days, not just for 6 months or a year, but for the rest of your life. It will lead you to a level of freedom which has got absolutely no fear attached to it at all. This freedom gives you the knowledge and the surety that you will never, ever drink alcohol again, that you will never, ever want to drink alcohol again… Enjoy!

    What Do You Expect? Expectations – Past, Present, and Future
    http://alcoholmastery.com/what-do-you...

    In today's video I am going to look at expectations from three different perspectives. First, we will look at expectations from the past, asking the question: what did you expect? Then, we will look at the present and how you can view your expectations from this perspective: what can you expect? Finally, we'll look at the expectations about your future: what do you expect to happen?
    I hope you enjoy.

    Tough Times Never Last, Tough People Do
    http://habitsunplugged.com/tough-time...

    Here's another video for habitsunplugged.com.

    Today I'm talking about mental resilience.

    It’s true that even the toughest of times don’t last forever, and as long as you remain strong you’ll make it through and be able to weather whatever storms come your way.

    The human spirit has shown that it’s capable of making it through tough times, and getting to the end of the tunnel.

    The best part of dealing with adversity is that it toughens you up for the next trial in your life.

    Habits Unplugged will be getting it's own newsletter over the next couple of weeks. I'll send you the details when it's ready.

    How Manageable is Life Without Alcohol?

    In today's video I talk about how my drinking life was affecting everything else around me. My life in general was descending rapidly getting uncomfortable, and forcing me outside of my comfort zone in ways which I hadn't previously thought. My life was becoming a vicious circle. I also talk about how that has changed, how much that has, and how not drinking alcohol, not thinking about drinking alcohol, has become the new normal for me.

    Alcohol Free Beer and the Evolving Taste for Alcohol
    http://alcoholmastery.com/alcohol-fre...

    Apologies for no videos last week. I have been studying hard for my final exam at the end of the first year in my degree program, which is happening next Monday. It's the first exam in my life that I can say I'm looking forward to :-)

    I've also been working on the Habits Unplugged Program and Mastermind Group, getting everything working, making sure there are no hiccups, and I should be ready to launch sometime next week. I am very excited about this. I will let you know through the newsletter when it's available and all the details of how you can take part.

    Today's video is about how long it takes to evolve the taste and the behaviour for alcohol. You know how everybody says that alcohol is an acquired taste? Well, it's also an acquired behaviour. I talk about how long it took for my alcohol habit to take possession and how long it took for the reverse process.

    I will have a video over on Habits Unplugged on Thursday. And, I hope to get back to normal with at least four videos a week on both sides from next week, or the week after at the latest.

    Quit Drinking Alcohol-Your Mind Is Your Greatest Strength
    http://alcoholmastery.com/quit-drinki...

    Can you make your mind an impenetrable fortress? Maybe not in the beginning, but certainly after some time… The trick is to keep feeding yourself positive propaganda… Why just allow somebody else to brainwash you? Brainwash yourself! At least you know it's in your own best interest.
    Unfortunately, we do brainwash ourselves on a regular basis. Instead of telling ourselves that we are invincible, we do the opposite. We tell ourselves that we cannot do something, that is beyond us, and we allow learned helplessness and mental fragility to take control.
    Just because you quit drinking, day one is not going to be full of strength and courage. It won't be full of persistence and patience. But you should have enough to get you through. These are mental muscles which will build and strengthen, the more you expand the time between quitting drinking and achieving your goals. Keep going, onwards and upwards!

    Scientists have located a protein that links abuse of alcohol to changes in the brain’s reward center.

    A team from the University of California San Francisco have found after giving mice alcohol that prosapip1 holds the key link between excessive alcohol consumption and structural changes in one of the reward centers in the brain.

    The discovery sheds new light on the sequence heavy drinking triggers in brain cells.

    Scientists do not fully understand how ethanol alters brain function to promote compulsive, uncontrolled consumption and alcohol-seeking despite negative consequences, but the discovery of the protein goes a long way to a better understanding, and could lead to more treatment options.

    “We have identified a new protein that plays a crucial role in changing the landscape of neurons in the nucleus accumbens, which then leads to escalation of problem drinking,” Dorit Ron, Ph.D., a professor and Endowed Chair in Cell Biology of Addiction in UCSF’s Department of Neurology, said in a statement. “These findings open up research into the protein’s role in neural plasticity, and also into how alcohol and other drugs of abuse alter our brains.”

    The researchers used a technique called RNAseq to locate new proteins that might be linked to mTORC1—a protein previously proven to be a key mediator of addiction— activity in the mouse brain in response to alcohol.

    They were able to identify 12 proteins including prosapip1 that have shown to play a role at synapses.

    Prosapip1 changed the structure and activity of neurons in the nucleus accumbens after mice consumed alcohol over long periods.

    After genetically blocking the production of prosapip1, the mice experienced significantly reduced alcohol-dependent changes in the brain.

    Following the genetic changes, the mice increased their frequency of selecting water when offered a choice between water and alcohol.

    Previous studies show that excessive drinking increases the protein’s activity in the nucleus accumbens—a crucial part of the brain’s reward circuitry. The recent study suggests that mTORC1 may trigger structural changes in the nucleus accumbens that reinforce positive associations with alcohol, contributing to the cycle of excessive drinking.

    By blocking mTORC1 activity with rapamycin—a common immunity-suppressing drug—the mice significantly cut down their drinking without impacting their taste for other rewarding substances.

    However, rapamycin has side effects, rendering it unsuitable to treat humans with alcohol use disorder.

    According to Ron, the research may lead to new, highly targeted approaches to treating alcohol addiction.

    “I’ve been doing research on the molecular neurobiology of alcohol abuse for many years and this is the first time I’ve seen a signaling molecule that appears to be shared by many drugs of abuse,” Ron said. “I think in a way this may be a gateway to understanding drug addiction—it’s a very exciting time.”

    Ron said that 3.3 million people die annually from alcohol abuse.
