Alcohol is a depressant, yet it has a way of becoming a crutch in our lives. It’s there for happy hours after work, celebratory occasions, and nights when we just need to relax. It’s ironic, but if you’re struggling to stop drinking alcohol, hypnotherapy can help. Keep reading to learn how to stop drinking alcohol for better health.

Why Is It So Hard To Stop Drinking Alcohol?

You may have even tried to stop drinking alcohol but found it extremely challenging. What many people may not realize is that alcohol is making their problems worse.

It’s exacerbating the very thing we’re trying to forget or numb with drinking in the first place. That’s why so many people are struggling with alcoholism. But, why is it so hard to stop drinking alcohol? 

    • Alcohol is legal and socially acceptable, which makes it easy to obtain and easy to justify drinking.
    • Your brain has come to rely on alcohol. When you drink alcohol, it releases dopamine, which makes you feel good. 
    • Chasing certain emotions: Over time, your brain begins to believe that it needs alcohol to feel good, relaxed or confident, and it is forming a loop pattern itself as a bad habit.
    • High tolerance in the body:  When someone drinks alcohol regularly, their body becomes used to the presence of alcohol in their system and has developed high tolerance. 
    • Withdrawal symptoms: Withdrawal symptoms make it difficult to stop drinking alcohol. They can include anxiety, shaking, sweating, nausea, and vomiting. In severe cases, they can even include seizures or hallucinations.

Here, the important part is to know that you are not alone, and you don’t need to hit rock bottom to seek help. You can reach out for help any time, so end your struggles and try hypnosis for alcoholism to rewire your brain for sobriety.

How To Stop Drinking Alcohol Every Night?

Maybe you’re not even aware of it, but alcohol has become a regular part of your nightly routine. If you find yourself drinking too much every night, it’s time to take a step back and reassess your relationship with alcohol.

5 Tips to Cut Back or Stop Drinking:
Strategies For Overcoming Alcohol Dependence

  1. Think about the reason WHY you need to give up drinking. Is over-drinking affecting your productivity, motivation or even your relationship? What happens if you keep drinking the same way for 3 to 5 more years?
  2. Be conscious of what keeps you drinking. What are you using alcohol for? To numb yourself for certain uncomfortable feelings? What deep down do you need to heal emotionally?
  3. Start by becoming aware of your drinking habits. Keep track of how much you’re drinking and when. This will help you to see patterns in your drinking.
  4. Decide which days of the week will be alcohol-free and set limits on how much you can drink and stick with them.
  5. Drink plenty of water. Drinking water helps flush the alcohol out of your system and prevent hangovers. If you enjoy something cold, make your own iced healthy drinks!

It’s nothing to be ashamed of—plenty of people have trouble quitting alcohol on their own, as they keep chasing the good feelings of drinking.

With the help of hypnosis for stop drinking sessions, quitting drinking can be easier than you think. Hypnotherapy for drinking can help you understand your unconscious patterns in your drinking and help rewire your brain while giving you the empowering tools to change your relationship with alcohol.

How To Stop Drinking In The House?

Often, it can be all too easy to overindulge, especially if you’re drinking in the comfort of your own home.

If you’re noticing that your drinking is starting to have negative consequences, it might be time to cut back. Here’s 3 ways: 

    1. Filling up your fridge with healthy beverages: You can make your own healthy beverages to refresh yourself after work.
    2. Plan something relaxing or fun for after work: People often drink as they don’t have anything else after work. If this sounds like you, plan something relaxing or fun after work instead, e.g. riding a bike, riding motorbike, hiking, dancing? What is most enjoyable for you that can make you forget drinking
    3. Hypnotherapy for Drinking: Over time, your brain has become so used to alcohol to relax your mind or to feel confident in social settings. That’s where hypnotherapy for drinking helps best! You need to rewire your brain so that your subconscious feeling mind will work with you to create the change you desire.
