The Happy Pear Podcast
The Truth about Alcohol with Andy Ramage
We are starting off 2022 with a bang! Now, although this is one for any time of the year, there really is no better way to begin dry Jan than with this motivational piece.
“The fear of change and being thrown out of a tribe is an unavoidable instinctive fear.”
Andy is known by many as the godfather of the alcohol-free movement. A former professional footballer, and creator of two major financial brokerages - Andy gave it all up to co-founded the OneYearNoBeer movement, which has now helped over 100,000 people transform their relationship with alcohol.
Since then Andy has written two books ‘The 28-day alcohol-free challenge’ & ‘Let’s Do This! How to use motivational psychology to change your habits for life’, and delivered a brilliant TEDx talk titled, ‘The pill will make you limitless’.
Recently Andy stepped down from OYNB to create the Arete Group which is a collection of initiatives to help people reach their limitless potential including self-development courses like 'The AreteWay: Unlock your limitless potential', and a world class coach training certification called AreteWay Coach.
As non drinkers ourselves for the last 19 years this episode is very close to our heart. Finding a new tribe, thinking outside the box, questioning culture norms that have been imparted on us at such a young age are some of the topics we discuss along with the serious health scares no one seems to talk about.
