Binge drinking is one way people choose to deal with stress and uncertainty.
It’s natural to want to feel good and avoid certain stressful situations. In fact, research has found that absence of discomfort is often perceived as pleasure.
Everybody turns to something – whether it is an idea, a belief, a feeling, a person, an activity or a substance that helps them deal with feeling stressed and uncertain.
How would you feel if you could:
• deal with negative thoughts and expectations;
• realise that you do have other choices;
• raise your tolerance for uncertainty;
• raise your patience for delayed gratification;
• be more in control of your feelings;
• see more of the big picture and the consequences of your actions;
• be free of the past; and
• perform to the best of your ability.

“My issue was alcohol had slowly crept into my daily life; I was grabbing a beer at 10 am. This no longer happens!
Issi really showed me how to look at the real underlying issues that were causing me to drink. I am no longer friends with my local bottle shop staff and am enjoying my days alcohol free.”
