Summary of the Alcohol (LivingSmart) Course

Gain control over drinking

LivingSmart doesn't involve willpower. There's no tricks or gimmicks of any sort. Truly living smart is a lifestyle, a state of mind, and it's everlasting. LivingSmart is the science-driven course that addresses the alcohol problem where it was formed: in the brain.  

LivingSmart contains the following:

  • 12 pre-recorded video-based sessions that simulate live 1:1 training/coaching.
  • Personalized coaching feedback based on short surveys starting at session 4.
  • Key to success cards to introduce and reinforce a renewed ability to choose an ex-drinker's lifestyle and all the benefits that go with it. 
  • Support audios that emphasize specific concepts and use visualization techniques that help to retrain the brain and break free from the drinker's addictive mindset.
  • Reading materials that summarize the most important lessons in the course.
  • Assignments that integrate the ex-drinker lifestyle into the participant's life.
