“Since May 5th of 2019 life has dramatically changed for the better”
I joined OYNB because for a while I had felt a bit like, ‘maybe I was drinking too much.’ I always rationalised it, compared myself to others that were drinking just as much, convinced myself that it was normal and just what you do. I told myself that I deserved my wine after a long day of parenting and running a business, or that it relaxed me. Except, it was never just one glass. It was more like a bottle. More often than not I was waking up cranky, irritable, snapping at my kiddos, losing patience with everyone and usually battling a headache of sorts.
I didn’t have a stereotypical ‘rock bottom’
OYNB appealed to me because giving up drinking “forever” seemed daunting and I wasn’t ready to take that leap. But anyone can do anything for 28 days. I knew I needed to change my relationship with alcohol. I need real strategies and tools to apply to real life situations and OYNB gave me just that. I also wanted to be able to connect with people who were in my similar situation of ‘grey-area-every-day-over-doing-it-a-bit drinking’. I knew, like anything, that I would need to put work into this. Doing my own research, using the tools OYNB provided and putting the effort in has resulted in an entirely new lifestyle.
The results are incredible
Since May 5th of 2019 life has dramatically changed for the better. My sleep is incredibly restful. My patience level is a million times better. My relationships with my kids and my husband are dramatically improved and while I still have some pounds to lose, medically, I’ve been told I’m in the “best shape of my life” by both my traditional and holistic doctors. My business is thriving, and I am 100% more calm and tranquil. I have virtually no anxiety, am able to clearly think things through. I find that I am significantly more responsive vs. reactive in my temper when faced with the challenges of life and people. It was hands down the BEST decision I ever made.
I loved the practical applications
An entrepreneur and former senior oil broker, Ruari gave up drinking after excessive consumption almost cost him his marriage, and worse, his life. Going alcohol-free improved his relationships, career and energy levels, leading to him founding OYNB to provide a support network for others.
