Stop Drinking Alcohol

Top Stop Drinking Tips According to ,Wiki. How

Step 1. Talk to your doctor. If you choose to start the path to recovery alone, bear in mind that alcohol withdrawal can potentially be deadly. If you start experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms (panic attacks, severe anxiety, the shakes, rapid heart beat) you should seek immediate medical assistance. The condition could potentially deteriorate to delirium tremens, which is deadly, if left untreated.

  • Don’t feel like you need to quit alone. You are carrying a heavy burden, but plenty of people (including people with medical degrees) want to help you. It’s often easier to quit with the help of medical intervention than it is to try it cold turkey.

Step 2. Change your attitude about quitting. Remember, you’re not being forced to give up a good friend who has treated you well. Instead, you are finally ridding yourself of an enemy. Adjust your attitude so that quitting is made easier. Your better half wants you to quit; your selfish half wants you to stay the same.

Step 3. Try to pick some significant date to quit. Be ambitious, but reasonable. If you are very heavy drinker you must first slow down to avoid withdrawal symptoms (in this case it is best to have your doctor help you plan your quitting date).

Step 4. Get rid of all bottles, cans, etc. Don’t feel that just because you are having guests over you need to offer them a beer, wine, or cocktail. It is perfectly fine to offer people tea, lemonade, coke, or the like.

Step 5. Feel your feelings. Cry when you need to. Laugh when you can. Eat when you are hungry. Sleep when you are tired. This is going to be really weird at first, but embrace it. You haven’t felt your feelings for a long time. You will have a learning curve.

Step 6. Don’t put yourself with people or in situations where you’re likely to drink. There’s an old saying about “Playgrounds and Playmates” — look at yours. You may need to leave some of your old drinking buddies and watering holes behind. That being said, it can be quite a revelation to find out that the friends you used to drink with were drinking with you only occasionally and were having two beers or two glasses of wine to your five.

  • Don’t do anything you don’t feel ready to do. If going to the beach is a time when you drank a lot, don’t go this year. If going to a certain friend’s home for dinner is a time when you drank a lot, get a rain check this time. Protecting your sobriety is the most important thing you are doing right now. Take care of you! Don’t worry about everyone else right now.

Drug Addiction – There is Hope with Hypnosis

A firm commitment needs to be made to eliminate the grip that some drugs have on many people. One session is not enough; I have found that several back to back sessions prove to be the most effective.

Battling the feelings of guilt, numbness, anger, sadness, and loneliness that come from substance abuse can be the most difficult part of your recovery. These emotions come and go quickly during healing and increase the urge to use again. Hypnosis can provide you with the tools to handle everyday life and these emotions again.

Ask yourself: Prior to your particular substance abuse, what was the nature of the original motivation and emotional reward of the drug? What did it seem to do for me that was good? The majority of us cannot truly explain what originally motivated today’s behavior. Sometimes a certain smell, sound, scene in a movie, or reaction from another person can send us into a series of emotional reactions that are so habitual themselves that they 
have become uncontrollable. This is the subconscious mind steady at work. The reason that this point is so important is because treating addiction is next to impossible unless the reason for the first repeated use is identified. You need a tool to access your subconscious mind, learn what event(s) in your life caused this myriad of emotions that the subconscious mind is working on overtime to protect your conscious mind from. 

Without a doubt Hypnosis works hand in hand with Drug Rehab very well.
