Lifting Your Spirits - How to Stop Drinking Alcohol?

How to Stop Drinking Alcohol?

Lifting your spirit can be a challenge with alcohol dependency. Yes, all drinkers struggle to lift their spirits and eke out the willpower to stop drinking alcohol. The good news is that you can stop drinking, no matter how difficult it may seem.

What Does Alcohol Withdrawal Feel Like?

When you stop drinking alcohol, your body starts healing. You may experience fatigue, headaches in the beginning as your body adjusts. These are known as withdrawal symptoms, and vary from person to person.

But the hardest part is usually dealing with the urges and cravings around “wine/beer o’clock”, for many people, resisting the temptations or getting over the habit is one thing. Dealing with the emerged uncomfortable emotions is another, as they have been using alcohol to numb or avoid certain emotions.

As hard as it may seem, the withdrawal symptoms and cravings won’t last forever. If you can stay strong and are determined to stop drinking alcohol, these symptoms will eventually cease. If you have tried many times on your own, but “relapsed” again and again, you need to find professional help.

Hypnotherapy for drinking works wonders to help you overcome the cravings permanently. You will be able to moderate drinking or stop drinking by working with your subconscious mind where the habit was formed.

What Can You Expect When You Stop Drinking Alcohol?

Here are 6 things you can expect when you stop drinking:

    1. Alcohol disrupts sleep patterns and prevents deep REM sleep. So, you may wake up exhausted after a full night’s sleep. Giving it up will improve your sleep quality dramatically.
    2. Drinking too much leads to health problems, like liver damage, heart disease, stroke, cancer, and digestive issues. Quitting drinking reduces the risk of developing these health problems.
    3. It’s no secret that having too much alcohol makes it challenging to get things done. With sobriety comes increased productivity both at work and at home. 
    4. Stop drinking alcohol brings with it a newfound sense of peace and happiness. When you’re not dealing with the negative effects of alcohol, you can focus on the positive aspects of your life. 
    5. Alcohol is linked to depression and anxiety, so quitting drinking can help improve your mood and outlook on life. Giving it up also leads to increased energy levels.
    6. With time, your energy levels will increase, and you’ll feel more vibrant and alive. You may also notice that your emotional well-being improves as you no longer rely on alcohol to cope with stress


How Long Does It Take Your Body To Get Used To Not Drinking?

Once you’ve decided to stop drinking alcohol, it can take around two weeks for your body to adjust. 

The point is, the loop pattern starts in the mind. The need for a drink has to be interrupted so you can forget about the alcohol and not become dependent on it anymore. 

With online hypnosis for alcoholism, you won’t have to undergo withdrawal symptoms nor intense cravings. Think of hypnotherapy for drinking as a powerful way to reprogram your mind to create new positive habits. It can help you develop strong willpower and you will find your cravings will be gone as soon as you start working with your subconscious mind.

Remember, drinking is a mind game that you can win. You will have to learn how to manage your cravings, stress, and emotions in a healthy way.

Hypnosis To Stop Drinking Also Treats Anxiety

Anxiety is the most common mental health problem in the U.S., affecting 40 million people annually. Alcohol can worsen anxiety, and if you don’t address the root of your problem, anxiety won’t go away on its own. 

Likewise, with the help of a hypnotherapist, you can explore the underlying reasons why you overdrink and eliminate triggers that cause cravings. This is an essential step in learning how to manage stress without alcohol.

A 2016 study showed hypnotic trance alters brain areas. It involved scanning the brains of people having guided hypnosis sessions and found those individuals had got:

  • Greater emotional and physical control
  • Focused attention
  • Less self-consciousness

If you are serious about quitting drinking, then hypnotherapy for alcoholism can be a powerful ally on your journey. It will help you become more mindful and, in turn, help you build the willpower to stop.
