Simon Chapple, known as “The Quit Alcohol Coach,” is a UK-based sobriety coach. At age forty-four, he decided to stop drinking alcohol and help others do the same. Simon says that he thought alcohol was helping him solve his life’s problems for years. However, after years of anxiety, mood swings, and emotional problems, he discovered alcohol was causing him to live a “colorless and unhappy existence.” He writes and speaks about his journey, which includes being diagnosed with ADHD and PTSD. He started blogging on day one after quitting alcohol.
