Millions of people around the world consume alcohol for various social purposes. For many of these people, there is no concern because they take the alcohol in moderation and can stop themselves from drinking beyond their limit.

Such a person can also quit drinking any time they wish to. For such people drinking is not a problem but just a way of having fun or relaxing.

Alcohol consumption becomes a problem when you start drinking uncontrollably. The inability to control alcohol consumption is referred to as alcoholism or addiction to alcohol. Alcoholism is often a pointer to as a coping mechanism against a psychological stressor.

As with any other addiction, quitting alcohol once you are addicted is extremely difficult even if you can know the damage it is causing to your body.

Alcohol dependency

If you find it difficult to cope with stress, unwind without taking alcohol, you are considered to be alcohol dependent. Many alcohol dependents do not drink excessively all the time but once the trigger e.g. stress occurs, the person ends up drinking.

Such a type of alcohol addiction is dangerous because it is difficult for you or people around you to notice that you can’t cope without alcohol. You may therefore struggle with the addiction for a long time without realizing you need help.

As a result, many alcohol dependent people get help when the addiction has already caused irreparable damage to their health.

How does alcohol dependency happen?

Nobody starts to take drugs the aim of getting addicted. It is the same with alcoholism. Most alcoholics start drinking alcohol as part of socializing or just relaxing. 

The dependency is therefore a gradual process. At first, you start to find it difficult or impossible to unwind or have fun in social events without drinking. The seriousness of the dependency grows over time whereby you are start resulting to alcohol when you are going through a difficult time.

At extreme alcohol dependency, you cannot even do your daily routines without drinking. At this level the alcoholism starts to directly impact other aspects of your life such as job.

Hypnotherapy and NLP to overcome alcoholism

If you or someone close to you has an alcohol drinking problem, you should seek help from a doctor, counsellor or support groups near you. 

These approaches, however, mainly focus on making you stop drinking alcohol and not addressing the underlying issue. As a result many people relapse to alcoholism soon after the rehabilitation. 

Experts have been researching on using hypnotherapy to solve the alcoholism problem and I has produced very positive results.

Hypnotherapy is different from other treatments because it taps into your subconscious mind to identify the underlying problem. Once you identify the psychological reason behind the alcoholism, the therapist will guide you towards letting go of it.

You will then work together to help you create a more positive thought process in your mind. Positive thoughts are important in helping you recognize the benefits of quitting the addiction.

By the time you are done with the therapy you will have changed your lifestyle such that you no longer see alcohol as a solution to difficult or uncomfortable situation.

Since hypnotherapy involves a complete change in your lifestyle, it is highly unlikely for you to relapse after completing the therapy.
