Hypnotherapy To Help With Drinking
We all like a drink, maybe after work to unwind, release a bit of stress, or maybe its a social thing or even just like to have 1 or 2 when you get home. For an increasing number of people though, drinking goes beyond this enjoyable habit and becomes a lot more of a burden. It can get to a point where the drinking seems to take control, and if you’re one of those people that feels like they haven’t got a stop switch then why not try hypnotherapy and see how we can help.
Dont think there is nothing you can do, environmental factors such as your job, family, relationships, work can all be either a contributing factor or equally they can be the things that help you get out of this rut. It doesnt matter how much you drink, its what you think is an acceptable amount of alcohol that is what is in question. For some people a bottle of wine a night is ok, for some its far too much.
I know from experience of helping both clients who drink a bit too much to working with people who have serious drinking conditions that you can learn how to control it.
Below are some useful tips from helpguide.org/alcohol-treatment
- Do you want to stop drinking altogether or just cut back? If your goal is to reduce your drinking, decide which days you will drink alcohol and how many drinks you will allow yourself per day. Try to commit to at least two days each week when you won’t drink at all.
- When do you want to stop drinking or start drinking less? Tomorrow? In a week? Next month? Within six months? If you’re trying to stop drinking, set a specific quit date.
After you’ve set your goals to either stop or cut back your drinking, write down some ideas on how you can help yourself accomplish these goals. For example:
- Get rid of temptations. Remove all alcohol, barware, and other drinking reminders from your home and office.
- Announce your goal. Let friends, family members, and co-workers know that you’re trying to stop drinking. If they drink, ask them to support your recovery by not doing so in front of you.
- Be upfront about your new limits. Make it clear that drinking will not be allowed in your home and that you may not be able to attend events where alcohol is being served.
- Avoid bad influences. Distance yourself from people who don’t support your efforts to stop drinking or respect the limits you’ve set. This may mean giving up certain friends and social connections.
- Learn from the past. Reflect on previous attempts to stop drinking. What worked? What didn’t? What can you do differently this time to avoid pitfalls?
