No Such Thing As An 'Alcoholic'?

Posted: Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if someone has been "drunk for the past 38 years" then the lovely folk down at Alcoholics Anonymous would class them as "an alcoholic", would they not? As would doctors, nurses, family members - even friends? Surely it is a physical addiction, right? A dependence?

Now check this:

"Hi Chris,

This is Carl, I came to you a week ago about my drink problem. Just to let you know that I haven’t touched a drop of wine nor have I had any cravings for drink since our session which is truly remarkable when you consider that I have been drunk for the past 38 years!! It’s also remarkable the way my life has changed in just one week (as Labi Siffre sang # I can see clearly now #), my health is improving daily, I’m exercising daily and I can concentrate on work! I feel so inspired that I would like to know more about hypnotherapy and even embark on a training course. Chris, could you point me in the right direction about getting trained in the subject?

Many thanks


The main reason Carl is astonished because hypnosis worked immediately with alcohol whereas all the other places he went to, or was sent to by medical advisers and doctors over the years never really changed a thing. Having experienced that difference for real, he now wants to understand it properly as well.

If you would like to ditch the booze - or just cut down - call me (Chris) at Central Hypnotherapy on 0161-474 8120 or call/text 07748 838 644 (any time, including evenings & weekends) for more info or to book an appointment.
