My name’s Leon Sylvester, and I’m here to show you exactly how to find stopping drinking enjoyable and effortless. Sounds crazy, right? Well, before I tell you about that, I need to be honest with you.
My journey to a great life without alcohol hasn’t been easy. In fact, I’ve failed – A LOT. It’s been a 10-year rollercoaster. I tried to stop drinking multiple times in the past, but the cravings always beat me.
The first time I stopped drinking, I used willpower and nothing else.
During the first time I stopped drinking, life was pretty good. I had a business, a car, a girlfriend and life was going really well.
Willpower Ran Out...
The first time I stopped, I felt great.
I felt clear headed, I had tonnes of energy and I felt true confidence. Life seemed to be going in the right direction.
However, everything took a dramatic shift.
I went to a New Years Eve Party after being sober for around 8 months. It was a really fancy party in a private club. Everyone was wearing suits, people looked good and champagne was flowing.
I was having a great time without alcohol…But…
People kept offering me drinks…And the voice in my head got louder and louder.
The willpower eventually ran out and I succumbed to the pressure.
"Just Have One"
I had “just one”, which obviously turned into more than just one…
After that night, I went back to my business, back to my girlfriend and back to normal life.
Things didn’t go bad quickly. I was successfully moderating my drinking for a few weeks…
But, to cut a long story short, I was back drinking regularly again very shortly after this scenario.
Everything I had built whilst being sober with willpower soon crumbled away.
My confidence, my clarity, my fitness…All of it had deteriorated and I just felt horrendous. I was back at square one.
Every morning would be the same. I’d wake up hungover and regret the money I had wasted, the texts I had sent and wondered how I could escape this vicious cycle…
I know what it's like...
See, I know what it’s like to be in a bad situation. I know what it’s like to wake up every morning and regret the decisions from the night before.
I would wake up and say “Okay Leon, this is it, you’re going to have a few days off…”
And then, by the time the evening came around, the willpower ran out…And I’d be back at square one…
I know what it’s like to be desperate to change…
These days are totally different...
These days, things are a lot different…
I no longer drink, but I also no longer crave alcohol.
I thought quitting drinking was hard, and I thought it required a tonne of willpower, but I was totally wrong. I couldn’t have been further from the truth.
I stopped drinking by following a system that I know works. I call it First Principles Thinking.
