Questioning the role of alcohol in your life (and for online business) with Karolina Rzadkowolska
Do you rely on alcohol to celebrate, vacation, de-stress or attend big events like weddings?
I’m chatting with the inspirational Karolina Rzadkowolska. Karolina is a certified alcohol-free life coach who helps powerful women make alcohol insignificant in their lives. She has worked with thousands of clients in her online courses and coaching, has written a book ‘Euphoric: Ditch Alcohol and Gain a Happier, More Confident You’, and is the host of her ‘Euphoric the Podcast’.
In this episode, we’re questioning the role alcohol has in people’s lives and how central it is for online businesses. Karolina encourages you to create a greater awareness of the role alcohol has in your life and if the relationship is actually serving you.
You don’t need to have a problem with alcohol to be more aware of it. When you take alcohol out of the equation, it creates space for you to find the underlying solution for why you’re reaching for a glass. Instead of numbing yourself with alcohol, there is more time and energy to invest in hobbies and pastimes that generate joy and contentment.
This is a very thought provoking conversation and I encourage you to reflect on your own relationship with alcohol and if it’s holding you back from creating a life that truly leaves you fulfilled.
Topics We Covered:
[3:49]: Karolina talks about the role alcohol has in our lives. You don’t have to see yourself as having a problem with alcohol to assess your relationship with it.
[7:30]: Drinking alcohol regularly is so ingrained in our society that many don’t see a problem with it.
[9:39]: It isn’t a black and white conversation about abstinence. Karolina encourages you to ask yourself if alcohol is truly serving you and adding to your long term happiness.
[10:54]: Taking a break from alcohol for a prolonged period rebalances brain chemistry.
[12:08]: Alcohol is used as a status symbol.
[14:48]: There are other ways to celebrate that are far more meaningful than champagne and alcohol.
[15:28]: Karolina discusses the added stresses for women and how alcohol is advertised as being an answer rather than systemic change to address the issues.
[19:22]: We are meant to emotionally grow through our challenges instead of numbing ourselves with alcohol.
[20:00]: By taking alcohol out of the equation, there is space to find the underlying solution.
[20:32]: Karolina shares what readers can expect in her book ‘Euphoric’.
[24:48]: When you remove the one thing that isn’t serving you, you create space for something that is fulfilling and creates joy.
[25:43]: Karolina’s life shifted 180 degrees when she stopped drinking alcohol.
[27:09]: It’s not about a drink at the end of the day, it’s about being so alive to your life.

[32:18]: Where to find Karolina.
