Stop Evening Drinking Habits

Defining addiction can be a tricky business. After all, we all have addictions that we allow to go unnoticed. Plenty of people are addicted to coffee, falling in love, sugar and other random things that we have just accepted as part of life.

We seem to have accepted too, that a glass of wine after a day's work is perfectly alright too. Maybe for some that is two or three glasses, for others it's a bottle.

So at what point is that habit a problem? At what stage of regular drinking do you have a drinking problem? When does the label "alcoholic"¯ apply?

For some, being an alcoholic means being drunk, almost daily, at unreasonable times of the day. But drinking a bottle of wine or two on a weekday evening is just the done thing. It has no bearing on alcoholism. Could they stop if they wanted to? Possibly, but perhaps only if there was a shake up of their circumstance that changed their drinking routine.

So what are you if you are not a drunk-all-day-every-day alcoholic but you are a habitual drinker and it's got a little out of hand?

You are an addict. At our hypnotherapy and NLP Clinic in Hertfordshire we help people with all kinds of addiction to regain control.

Unless you can make a conscious decision to not drink any alcohol that day and stick to it, then you are addicted. If it would cause you problems, distress or discomfort to go without it, you are addicted and it's important to break that cycle. Hypnotherapy works with the unconscious part of your mind which is much more powerful than the conscious and to to achieve success in breaking a habit or addiction, you need to have agreement in both parts of your mind.

Not only is alcohol damaging to your body when you have large quantities over long periods, but after a time the effects start to wear off, and you need more to get the same level of relaxation or whatever other escapism it allowed you to have.

In preparing to stop drinking, it's important from a dependancy perspective that you wean yourself off gradually rather than stopping altogether one day. People who participate in "Dry January"¯ after a spell of drinking through the festive season often have some uncomfortable side effects because they are experiencing a come down too rapidly. It's better to formulate a plan of phasing the alcohol out of your life gradually and in a realistic way than to knock it on the head overnight.

Think about what would happen when you give it up. It's like that you will sleep better, be sharper and brighter throughout the day and save your liver and kidneys in the future.

Then consider what would happen if you didn't give it up. What the day to day implications would be and the long term effects on your health.

Go back to the positive results of having achieved it and notice how much better that feels.

If you feel that you are influenced, either by your own tendency to sabotage your efforts, or by others who will continue drinking, you may benefit from some help in stopping drinking alcohol. Hypnotherapy is both safe and effective for those who wish to stop drinking, whether you are an alcoholic or just have un unhealthy relationship with it.

Break Your Bad Habits
Having just looked at a list of bad habits posted on the internet, I can honestly say that whilst they are habitual repetitive behaviours, many of them are also disgusting! One site listed nail biting, throat clearing, lying, interrupting, chewing the end of a pen, smoking and swearing in its top 20 list of bad habits. And that's not to mention knuckle cracking and thumb sucking. Habits are formed when a behaviour is consistently repeated. Eventually, it becomes an unconscious behaviour, that...

How Hypnotherapy Can be Used on Children
Today Hypnosis can be termed as a branch of medicine which is quite unique, whereas in the past this treatment was not considered to be effective . Hypnotherapy is simply the procedure in which hypnosis is used for treating any symptom, issue or addiction. In this therapy, the patient is brought in to a state of deep relaxation.

Hypnotherapy And NLP For Curing Allergies Is Not To Be Sniffed At
How often do we accept a label and fully live up to it? Well the answer may be many more times than we should. The challenge that we have as human beings is that we have used words to identify things, but the words are never fully reflective of the true experience. For example, lets say you go to the doctors one summers day because your eyes are sore and your nose is runny. The likely hood is that your doctor, whom you respect and trust will apply a label to your symptoms, in an effort to...

Dental Phobias
Are you someone who is so scared of going to the dentist that you will absolutely avoid going, even to the detriment of your own dental hygiene? If the answer is yes, the chances are you have a dental phobia. A phobia is more severe and intense than a fear which happens when the body senses danger and activates the fight or flight responses caused by a surge in adrenalin. The fear or phobia may occur as a reaction to the dentist, the treatments or in more serious cases, anything dental...

Nail Biting
I remember once going to a Tony Robbins event, where he told the story of how he used to bite his nails totally unconsciously- in that he was totally unaware that he would be doing it. Once day he was at a business lunch with a very attractive woman who he was hoping to ask on a date. Everything was going really well and he was hoping to be successfully in both the business and pleasure aspect of this meeting. Suddenly the woman grabs his hand as she has noticed his scruffy bitten fingers. She...

Building Immunity And Healing
It is well documented that stress has an impact on health and the ability to heal one's self when in a state of illness. How many stressed people do you know that also suffer from headaches and pains in their bodies, or reoccurring colds? My own personal story is that I used to work in a very stressful and pressured environment. I worked through my lunch breaks and at the weekend. If I got sick, I still went to work. I worked when I had tonsillitis and sickness bugs. I covered other people's...

Pain Control
The first account of painless surgery using hypnosis was in 1838. Dr. Elliotson capitalized on the times by giving public demonstrations of hypnosis (which was at that time still referred to as mesmerism, a name given by Franz Anton Mesmer) at the London University College Hospital. Later in 1845 James Esdaile performed over 2000 operations including amputations in which patients were hypnotised. The patients reported feeling no pain throughout their operations. In 1955 The British Medical...
