Life Beyond Drinking with Maz Compton

In this episode of the podcast, you'll meet Maz Compton.  Maz is a TV presenter, radio announcer, one of Australia's foremost entertainment reporters and author of The Social Rebellion: True Freedom begins with a cheeky month alcohol-free.  Maz is on the show to talk about how her life has changed since she stopped drinking 5 years ago, and what you can expect in the first month and beyond.

Deciding to stop drinking - or deciding to take a break from drinking - is the first step in being able to reflect on your relationship with alcohol.  But what happens next?   On day 2, on day 23?  After a year?  After two years?  What are the benefits?  How does life change?  How do you explain yourself to your friends who want you to drink with them still?  How do you avoid replacing one bad habit with another habit... like eating too much chocolate?

If you've ever wondered about your relationship with alcohol, or maybe you are just a little bit interested in understanding more about what makes for problem drinking, then make sure you listen to this episode to hear Fiona and Maz get really honest about their experience of life beyond drinking.

My Mission

Fiona Redding

Fiona Redding

Host

My mission in life is to share everything I have learned – and am continuing to learn – about turning my own life around and to really help you understand that happiness is to be found in the overcoming of obstacles and challenges in your life, and not in the absence of them. 

To achieve your potential in life, you need to become your potential.  And for that to be, you need to understand yourself, and learn how to harness your strengths and overcome your weaknesses.  

You have the power within you to create whatever reality you choose, and I am here to help you know that if you don’t like what you are experiencing, then you can absolutely change that.  

But you do have to choose, believe, and be open to all possibilities, and to keep showing up every day, even when it feels really hard.

If you do what is easy, your life will be hard.  But if you do what is hard, your life will be easy.
