Andy is a former professional athlete turned oil broker who currently runs a successful commodities brokerage business. He is also a master practitioner of NLP, a mindfulness based awareness coach and is currently studying for a Master’s degree in both positive psychology and coaching psychology. A love of wellbeing and peak performance led Andy to stop drinking alcohol in the face of massive social pressure. Running a brokerage in the city and 'not drinking' is almost unheard of. From this experience he realised that there were probably millions of others desperate for a break from alcohol who could not overcome this pressure. So he co-founded the OYNB movement with Ruari Fairbairns to change people’s perception of alcohol for good. One Year No Beer was launched in 2016 and was more successful than they could have imagined.
ONE YEAR NO BEER is a book about giving up alcohol to get back the parts of your life it can suck away. You don't have to be an addict, or have any problem with alcohol to find that it makes you tired or negatively impacts on the most important relationships in your life. In their first book Andy and Rory share their hints and tips for going alcohol free - including surviving the work Christmas party, the inevitable slip ups and most importantly embracing the health and social benefits of a life unbridled by booze.
Bluebird will be publishing in October 2017. First serial rights have been sold to The Sunday Times Magazine and second to The Mirror.
