Alcohol Is Pleasurable. Really?
As a society we have been conditioned to believe that alcohol makes us happy and is pleasurable.
However it is an undisputed fact that alcohol is a depressant and the more of a depressant you take, the more depressed you will become.
Indeed, if alcohol was the good time drug it is touted to be, our local GP's would be regularly giving out prescriptions for a ½ bottles of vodka!
If you're reading this, it's probably because you're going through something that you think you could use some help or guidance with. This is it - this is your solution. Pick up the phone, get your toolkit, and live the life you're supposed to be living.
And regarding pleasure:
- is there pleasure in blowing your mind so much that you become a different person?
- is there pleasure in not being able to make love or show true affection?
- is there pleasure in diminishing your motivation, focus, creativity, enthusiasm, energy, vitality, and confidence?
We suspect if you are reading this, pleasure is no longer something you associate with 90% of the alcohol experience.
The Prison Of Addiction
An addiction is defined as any behaviour where a person finds:
- temporary pleasure or temporary relief from pain - that they therefore crave
- but where they suffer negative consequences as a result
- and where they are unable or unwilling to give it up despite these negative consequences
I cannot recommend Steve highly enough. I genuinely believe I owe my life to what he's taught me.
And because the more we do something, the less pleasure we get, untreated or unchallenged, an addiction will generally move through a spectrum of problematic through to all encompassing.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
I learnt a lot about myself and how to tackle other relationships, including with alcohol. I have been inspired and feel so positive about life - thank you Steve!
Over a combined 35 years of addiction therapy, using rapid and dynamic techniques, we’ve helped hundreds of clients to feel free and liberated from that dark toxic prison of alcohol dependency.
No White Knuckle Ride Required
Whilst there are no magic wands, most of our clients enjoy the process of stopping drinking and find it significantly easier than they thought possible.
I hope I don't speak to Steve again, but if I needed to, I wouldn't hesitate.
This is as a result of them undertaking one, some, or all of the following:
- healing old emotional injuries
- changing core beliefs about themselves and alcohol
- focussing on what they want in life (rather than what they don't)
- learning AND INTEGRATING new insights and skills around their own emotional health
- showing some genuine courage and tenacity
In this regard it would be an honour to help you help yourself stop drinking now.
If you want to change, trust the process and do the work and you will! It's as simple as that.
Perhaps read some reviews from Trustpilot - this will give you a much better sense of who we are, what we do and all importantly, the results we consistently help our clients achieve.
