3 Reasons Why You Haven't Been Able To Ditch The "Mommy Juice" For Good
Have you been trying to get out of the toxic drinking cycle, but then after 4 or 5 days, you say, "screw it!"?
Download the top three reasons WHY the inner wine witch gives in, and what you can do to conquer that wine witch once and for all.
I finished up the 30 Day 1:1 Coaching Program (Bye, Bye Booze…Hello, Freedom!) with a mom in Australia. Yes, I work with mothers all over the WORLD. She had done the live Alcohol Experiment a few times, listened to podcasts, and read some books, but she found that she needed MORE. What she needed was the one-on-one support that personalized coaching provides. Challenges like The Alcohol Experiment as well as ones that I host are great to get the ball rolling and for some that is all they need. For others, they need a bit more accountability, guidance, and a space where they can TALK. Talk about their triggers. Talk about what’s going on in their chaotic life. Talk about the WHY and the HOW.

I also offer a 90 Day 1:1 Coaching Program and one-off sessions. To make sure you're a good fit for the 90 Day 1:1 Coaching Program, please book a free 20-minute call here. This call makes sure you are ready for this type of investment and to ask questions.
It’s one thing to communicate with someone through text or comments, it’s another level of experience to be able to HEAR and LISTEN to what others are struggling with, and think of ways we can get past a roadblock TOGETHER. We can’t go through this journey alone. We need to form connections, and this is the way to do just that.
I believe so much in the power of connection that I include group coaching with private 1:1 Coaching as well as the Alcohol-Free Challenges.
Sober Mom Coach
Who Am I?
Hey there, I'm Alyson Premo.
Just 4 years ago, I was in the midst of a drinking cycle that I didn’t know how to get out of. Right now, you may be justifying your drinking with the mommy wine memes, merchandise, and the “everyone around me is drinking,” so I’m fine attitude. I thought I was “fine” too until I slowly progressed to having shots of vodka before work, going out to the liquor store at lunch to fill up my coffee cup with wine, and finishing a whole bottle of wine before bed as my way of relaxing from the stressors of motherhood.
This progression didn’t happen overnight. It took years of detoxing and thinking I could moderate, and then slowly going back to my old ways to finally wake up. Ultimately I hit my “rock bottom” on 11/14/16, and it ended up being the worst and best day of my life. That was the day I got sick of living my every waking moment with anxiety, sick of the hangovers, sick of not being the mother my son deserved, and sick of feeling like an embarrassment.
To fulfill my true purpose in life, I switched career paths from being in the corporate world as a Business Development Executive to becoming a Certified Professional Recovery/Life Coach. I was fueled by my passion to help other mothers who are struggling alone, and for those that wanted a different way than reading out of a Big Book in a church basement.
I have been where you are. Hiding how much I was drinking. Chugging alcohol before even leaving to go to a restaurant. Never leaving a sip of alcohol behind. Not telling anyone how much I was drinking for fear of being called a bad mom. The shame and guilt kept me trapped in this cycle for far too long.
I'm here to guide you through this journey. YOU CAN DO THIS. There are going to be some hard days, but those are the days when we grow, and we can look back and say, "wow, look at all I’ve accomplished and how far I’ve come." This life is worth it, and YOU are worth it. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

"I signed up for the 90 Day Alcohol-Free Challenge after hearing Alyson's story on "The Bubble Hour". I had been drinking on and off throughout the Summer following a 100 day break and decided that I wanted long term, permanent sobriety. The small group element and daily accountability appealed to me. I'm currently at 80 days alcohol-free and can attribute a lot of my success to the group. The daily journal prompts and lessons have not only helped me address the "why" and underlying reasons I drank, but Alyson has also provided many resources for my recovery toolbox. If you are on the fece, I highly recommend joining and not looking back."

Your argument for drinking red wine is now invalid.
You know those people that I’m talking about, right? Those that say I’m drinking red wine for the antioxidants. Um, you can get your daily dose of antioxidants without ethanol in it. Blueberries, grapefruit, watermelon, broccoli, carrots, and the list goes on are foods that you can eat without a side of cancer-causing carcinogens.
This week the American Cancer Society published NEW GUIDELINES for alcohol.
Once upon a time...
Once upon a time, there was a girl from a small town in Connecticut who felt she was never good enough.
Not pretty enough.
Not athletic enough.
Not outgoing enough.
Not smart enough.
She grew up in a household where "perfection" was expected and led to the small views she had of herself.
She went to college, and started to let herself be free, but not the free you're thinking of. Free of the grips of her mother's hold. Free of the constant criticism. Free of the strict rules.
I'm more than my sobriety. I'm a mom. I'm an entrepreneur. And I'm a lover of Bravo.
One of my favorite women in this sober community asked me a question last week in my stories. It was pretty profound and made me take a step back, so I told her I would answer it for my 3 year soberversary blog post. Her question was, "How proud of yourself are you that you started such a successful and inspirational place for women to share and bond? How do you go about telling non-sober women what you do when asked?”
