 I am guessing that you are reading this because you are looking for your ‘alcohol off switch’.

This has been said in jest, in reference to themselves or others, in so many scenarios and walks of life over the years. 

Often, too often it is very common for people to think that they have no off switch when drinking.  Almost like it is just ‘a given’.  One of those things.  The way it is.

Once drinking has started, it carries on for far longer than you intended. 

Does this sound Familiar?


“I have no off switch when I start drinking”

And this can feel so very true, if it iis one too many the night before, or drinking has become a daily crutch.  Once we get down the path to feeling that we need alcohol, we often feel like we have no off switch when it comes to drinking. 


I am guessing that you are reading this because you are looking for your ‘alcohol off switch’.  

Truth is, we all DEFINITELY have an alcohol off switch.  It is how and where that alcohol off switch is.  That is finding the key.  


 The alcohol off switch is-

  • An online resource to help people quit alcohol.
  • A guide to help people understand their relationship to alcohol.
  • A community of people who use this platform as a means of support, and to offer support.]

The Alcohol Off Switch was borne by a belief that there is actually an ‘off-switch’ that people have inside them.  It just takes different ways of hitting that switch for different people.  For some, it could be simply reading a book or watching a film.  Something striking a chord, to help you on your way to sobriety.  For others, it will be far more complicated.  

But it is there.  What the alcohol off switch ‘was’

  • It was a tool to help me in my own sobriety
  • A method of accountability
  • Something to use with my newfound time.   

As I decided to have a life without alcohol, I began writing this blog on the day that I started to make myself accountable. Scary putting it out here, but it was much needed!.

As I have progressed through my sober journey, I have decided to share it all for anyone else to see. And it seems that it helps others too, so I continue to do this.   



I Believed that I had no off switch when drinking alcohol.  Period. 

From a very early age, I thought it was just ‘me’ – a part of my make-up or whaterver really. 


 To believe that you have no off switch when you start drinking – you have a drink, then another and so on.  It is not your fault, nobody’s fault.  Just one of those things.  You have no off switch, no big button to say ‘hey’ I have had enough alcohol now for this sitting.  None of that.

A message to anyone looking for hope and help. 

If you read through my life and see where I have come from then I am sure there will be aspects that you will not relate to. I am also sure that there will be aspects that you will definitely relate to. We are all different and have different views and priorities, and have walked very different paths. But, that grip of alchol….it grips us all with the same grasp, and has no mercy…and is also not very choosy who it decides to take down. 

 I have tried and failed, tried and done ok, and am now trying and have kicked drinking to the curb. I will never be blase about drinking alcohol and will always walk this life with my guard up.
I have created a toolbox for my own security and would love to share what works for me. It might well just work for you too.
