Drink in Moderation

Drink in moderation, or not at all. Hypnosis Chicago can help.

Hypnosis can help you:

  • Stop drinking alone

  • Stop drinking wine nightly with dinner

  • Drink only on social occasions

  • Drink in moderation when you do go out

  • Pace yourself if you drink

  • Stop drinking completely

  • Have more fun with less alcohol

 


Hypnosis is a very effective way to reduce your drinking.

Maybe you started out having a glass of wine with dinner occasionally, but now it’s turning into a nightly habit, and it’s a whole bottle, not one glass.

Or perhaps you overdo it when you’re out socially, and want to stop at two drinks.

Whatever your goals, hypnosis can help you to drink in moderation, only socially, or quit completely if that is your goal.

This is an issue that responds well to hypnosis. Anything that we can tell the subconscious mind to stay away from, it seems to understand.

Over the years I’ve successfully worked with hundreds of clients who felt they were drinking in excess or who felt it was time to stop before they developed a dependency.

Often it  starts out having a glass of wine with dinner occasionally, but now it’s turning into a nightly habit. Some people  want to drink only when they are out socially, and then limit themselves to one or two. Others want to quit completely. It’s up to you.

How does hypnosis work for drinking too much?

Basically, my program consists of addressing the underlying reasons why you’re drinking, starting with reducing the stress, worry and boredom that can lead to excess. Then I give you new tools to relax and unwind or comfort yourself.

All the benefits of passing on alcohol/wine and staying sober for the most part will be reinforced. Suggestions will be given that you can have more fun with less alcohol, or more fun when you’re completely clear-headed and in control.

Powerful NLP techniques, creative visualizations, time progression and other tools are used for maximum results. In some cases aversion techniques are also used. I use a combination of visualizations, direct suggestions, aversions and rewards to elicit the desired behavior.

Can hypnosis really help?

Yes, it can. Just as with smoking and eating sweets, hypnosis can take away the desire for wine and alcohol, so that it’s easier to just say no. Hypnosis can also help you to pace yourself, stop after just one or two, and reach for water or a non-alcoholic beverage instead.

In their own words…real client results…

“I have been sober since my first session. Alcohol is no longer controlling my life! I listened to the recordings of your session daily for several months. I want to send you my sincere thanks!” Sharon L.

“I used to enjoy a 1/2 bottle of wine with my husband in the evenings, but I am pleased to tell you that I haven’t touched a glass since I last saw you‚ and haven’t even missed it. Now I’m sleeping better as well.Julie B.

I want to be able to pace myself when I drink. I used to get so out of control at parties and events that I’d embarrass myself. Sometimes I’d meet a cute guy and I’d be slurring my words. Not very attractive. Hypnosis has helped me to pace myself and drink much less. I now have a glass of water between drinks, and it’s helped a lot!” Karen B.

“I was up to a bottle of wine a night, and I have a small toddler. I realized this had to stop. The best thing I ever did was to see you for hypnosis. I feel like I’m reconnecting with my daughter and my relationship with my husband has improved. And I feel like exercising again and to be honest, living again.” Tanya H.

“I’ve gotten into a bad habit of putting away a few hard drinks every night. It hasn’t affected my work yet but I don’t want this to go any further. I feel like I have an addictive personality, so I came to see you to quit completely. Hypnosis has worked far better than I expected. I was able to quit completely after two sessions. Unbelievable. I don’t even think about drinking anymore.”Nick T.

“These are all true case histories. However, results will vary from individual to individual depending on how well you respond to hypnosis, how many sessions you do, how often you listen to the recordings.”


A Word to Women:

Women, Wine and Weight LossTM

Over the years I’ve seen so many women who want to cut back on their drinking because of weight gain that it merits a few words.

Many feel that their nightly habit of 2 or 3 glasses of wine is seriously interfering with their weight loss efforts, and keeping them from looking and feeling their best.

Alcohol is an appetite stimulant, and it releases inhibitions, so we not only eat more, but we make poor choices as well when we drink. Recent research published by Weight Watchers, Inc also showed that women tend to consume an extra 200 calories the day after they had something to drink.  Many women also report feeling tired and lethargic and headachy the next day.

Alcohol consumption has also been linked to an increase in liver, rectal and breast cancer. The risks increased with consumption.

And now, some more testimonials:

Binge drinking testimonials:

“My drinking was starting to get out of control and was affecting my job and relationships. I usually binged on weekends and drank heavily during the week as well. My girlfriend said if I don’t quit she is going to break up with me. Drinking heavily runs in my family, so I was a bit skeptical about whether or not this would work, but I knew a friend who used it to quit smoking and wanted to give it a try.

After our first session, I went all day Saturday without a drink. Normally I would have started around noon. Finally at 11pm at night I said to myself “well, it is Saturday night. I could have one drink.” And so I poured myself one and drank only a few sips. I really didn’t even want any more of it. This is amazing. It wasn’t like I had to argue with myself. I just didn’t want one. This is the first time in years I’ve gone over a week without a drink. I feel like I’m getting my life back. Now I want my brother to see you.” Fred S.
