Energetically You

Apr 27, 2021

In this week’s episode of Energetically You I had the joy of talking with Karolina Rzadkowolska. Karolina is a certified alcohol-free life coach who helps powerful women make alcohol insignificant in their lives.

Questions we address in this episode:

  1. Why might you want to become alcohol-free even though you don’t have a ‘drinking problem’?
  2. How might you know that alcohol is holding you back?
  3. What are some of the benefits of going alcohol-free?
  4. What is the moderation illusion?
  5. How does alcohol change our brain chemistry?



“It’s like that saying in Yoga, we learn to let go of things that no longer serve us. It doesn’t mean they didn’t serve us then, it doesn’t mean we were wrong for choosing them then but we outgrow the younger versions of ourselves. We choose things because we’re evolved, we have different needs that are more nuanced now.”

“When it comes to drinking, we all have very common human needs and oftentimes we try to meet those needs through alcohol and there’s nothing wrong in having those needs, that’s a very human experience.”

“If I have a need for adventure; I want to feel uncertain and have some risks. Like a Friday night sometimes you have no idea what’s going to happen; you’re drinking. If I want to feel that uninhibited, how can I actually create that experience in my life without that negative consequence alcohol brings? Maybe I go jump into a cold body of water, maybe I do a naked moon ritual, maybe I go out on a Tues and leave work early and go shopping. We are responsible for creating the feelings we want to feel.”

Thank you for listening!
