Is the 12 step program for everyone? Some say no. Many clients of mine say they don’t like hearing depressing stories every meeting and they don’t feel like they fit in. They feel like going to AA and always introducing themselves as an alcoholic makes them feel like there is no hope and they lose their optimism.
Personally I think it’s all about the individual, for some AA is definitely the way to go and I usually recommend it to people that I see for therapy to go to AA in conjunction with our therapy.
I do have those clients that do really well with hypnosis alone. They want to put their alcoholism behind them and reminding themselves for the rest of their life that they are an alcoholic doesn’t work for them. These people are motivated and don’t feel like they need to hit bottom before they start getting better. It is a matter of changing your belief system from being an alcoholic to a person who is in control; a person who is choosing a healthy body and mind! When your mind stops associating alcohol with relief from pain, you will no longer find yourself reaching for a drink to feel good or to avoid your problems.
Hypnosis helps you create the outcome that you want. It supports the positive and reinforces that into your subconscious mind. You will find when you change your core belief about yourself and alcohol, making new choices will be much easier than you thought. Hypnosis is a safe and healthy way to become free of alcohol addiction! Click here for more info.
