Drinking has been a part of our Australian way of life sine this country was first established. It’s not always easy to tell if you have a drinking problem, particularly as binge drinking is very common in our society. You may not always notice when a couple of drinks has become too many. For some people it’s hard to know where to draw the line.
A study conducted by the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre in 2009 stated that over 1.3 million Australians consumed alcohol on a daily basis. There are ways to determine whether or not drinking is getting the better of you.
Some of the signs that things are getting out of control can include:
- Regular binge drinking episodes
- Prefering to drink alone
- Trying to hide the amount the amounts from others
- Lack of interest in other activities
To gain even more clarity, ask yourself questions such as:
- Have you tried to stop, or drink less but found you can’t
- Do you get drunk even when you don’t mean to
- Do you get into trouble when you’re drinking
- Do you gulp your drinks
These are some telling signs that the drinking habit is getting out of control.
How can hypnotherapy help you take back control over the drinking
Through the use of hypnotherapy, the desire to drink can be diminished. Patterns of thought that were fuelling the urge to drink can be redirected to more productive and healthier outcomes. Often, part of the process is creating better coping strategies.
Once the causes are determined, the issue can be viewed differently and the healing can begin. Hypnotherapy speaks directly to the unconscious mind, where our patterns, beliefs and programs exist. Once these patterns and beliefs are accessed, they can then be changed.
Our minds are made up of many different parts. Once the part that is responsible for drinking too much has been identified, then that behaviour can be altered, to produce better all round results. The conscious mind is then free to make better choices, that aren’t as destructive.
