Not everybody wants to stop drinking completely, but if you go to Alcoholics Anonymous they will tell you that habitual drinkers are “alcoholics” and that they won’t be able to cut down, they’ll have to quit altogether and go to A.A. every week for the rest of their lives...
Louise didn’t fancy that, so she came to Central Hypnotherapy where explained to her that A.A. are in fact wrong but it’s only because they don’t know anything about hypnotherapy. Quitting is one option, but you don’t have to go through a twelve-step programme. Just a one-step hypnosis session, and there are many options for alcohol reduction. So I explained them and Louise picked the one where you no longer feel like drinking at home, only if you go out – and even then, the appetite for alcohol is reduced. The effect was immediate:
I just want to thank you for today. Can’t believe that I haven’t had any urges to drink tonight!!!!! My husband is astounded.
Feel so positive and happy.
Thanks again. Will keep you posted.
So that was on the 14th of January and I know what you’re thinking, that’s just one day, what does that prove? Well, for one thing it proves that Louise “can’t believe” the change and her husband is “astounded” so it is fair to say that the immediate results of the session far exceeded their conscious expectations.
But you’re right, I would not put this message up on the website until we got feedback regarding a more significant period than one day, obviously! So yesterday on the 24th February I emailed Louise to see how she was doing, and this was the response:
I’m great, thanks. Lost 9 ½ lbs in weight. Not drank at home or once been tempted. Been a very good girl when out, to the point where I will go on soft drinks of water later on!!!!”
[Yeah, try doing THAT with willpower!]
“It’s absolutely amazing. I am beyond happy and feel like my life’s back on track. Thank you so much. I have already highly recommended you to a few friends who could use you to help with smoking etc. You can use anything I’ve said for website and if you want more just ask.
Thanks once again.
Oh just another thought thanks to you and my actions my husband doesn’t drink at home now either!!! A MAJOR achievement"
