Other people’s opinions are something to which we tend to give a lot of weight. And it turns out that other people have a lot to say. This is a barrier for lots of people who want to change their drinking and it certainly was for me.
Dealing with other people’s reactions was in many ways harder than all the thought work I had to do on myself when I decided I wanted to drink less. Initially told people they thought I was mad. Why would I want to do that? But didn’t I really enjoy a glass of white wine? I faced all sorts of comments. People just didn’t get it. This barrage of comments initially put me off and went back to old habits. I had tried to make changes but wasn’t really committed.
So if you tell people you want to change your drinking habits, there’s a good chance they’ll have a strong opinion on the matter. No wonder many people continue drinking rather than face these accusations.
In this episode, I explain why worrying about other people’s opinions is futile, why we do it, who to listen to instead three ways you can start taking action straight away if you find your faced with other people’s opinions that are keeping you stuck.
