“It is hard to understand addiction unless you have experienced it”- Ken Hensley
Alcohol addiction or dependence?
Many individuals suffer from alcohol dependence and find it hard to acknowledge their problem, and the result is that the addiction remains undetected for many years. But, for many who accept their problem have controlled their addiction and rebuild their lives with the right help and support. Often times, medication alone is not enough to combat alcohol dependence. Hypnotherapy is very quick treatment and usually only requires just 3 or 4 sessions.
Alcohol and Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis is a rapid remedy to stopping alcohol addiction. Hypnotherapy for alcohol addiction is a way of providing your brain a head start in the process of breaking the habit and wanting to staying sober. Hypnosis therapy can help the subconscious mind to rewrite beliefs as well as conquering impulses to drinking alcohol. Hypnosis also helps lessen the urge to use alcohol as a means to relax, or to remove tension or escape from problems. This allows the person to become much more able to deal with stopping or reducing their drinking and dealing with life more effectively.
“Over 24% of people in England consume alcohol in a way that’s harmful or potentially harmful to their health and wellbeing” – NHS website
Steps to Overcome Alcohol Addiction Using Hypnosis
The initial step to overcoming alcohol abuse is to accept that you can do it. The moment that you realize you can stop or control your drinking at all times, you can begin the battle against the addiction. If you cannot find the courage to decline the temptation of getting sober, just think of the things that you could lose if you fall deeply into the addiction. When will you stop- if you lose property such as your car, your house, or even lose your family?
The next step is to tackle the emotional problems that causes you to drink alcohol. Alcohol abuse may be a physical problem, but there is something in your mind that tells you to do it. Determining the cause of the addiction is extremely important if you want to regain the life that you had when you’re not yet addicted to alcohol.
