A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Walsall hypnotherapy branch
When Chris called about our Walsall hypnotherapist, he seemed at first to fit an average profile, but as the conversation went on we learned more. Chris’s problem, apart from smoking of course, was drink.
Alcohol and tobacco go together for many people, and so the subject comes up quite often for our Walsall hypnotist. The problem we often have is that people who own up to smoking often don’t own up to drinking. There’s nothing wrong with drinking, but there is something wrong with excessive drinking. There is usually no problem with helping someone who drinks moderately to stop smoking, but heavy drinkers do have a problem. And Chris was a binge drinker.
Our Walsall hypnotherapist is well used to clients with a drink problem, but the two issues combined require a careful approach. We don’t lecture clients, but we do need to set some boundaries. Hypnotherapy can help with alcohol just as well as tobacco, but clients who come to us for smoking cessation usually want to restrict the hypnotherapy to that. Chris did.
That was his decision, but on the other hand we couldn’t sweep it under the carpet. Our Walsall hypnotist is sensitive to these problems, but she couldn’t ignore Chris’s drink issues. It’s a careful balance – making the client face the problem without accusing them of being alcoholic. In any case, there is no very good definition of alcoholism in our opinion. So what we did was to try and get Chris to deal with the smoking as if he was like most other smokers – drinking normally.
Without going into a lot of detail, Chris actually did better than either he or we expected. So we were right to leave him to sort out the drinking. We’re not saying he stopped doing that. We are saying he was able to separate the two problems and deal with the smoking with the help of our Walsall hypnotist. And he found what a lot of clients find – that not smoking actually helped him to bring his drinking under more control.
NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STOP SMOKING
Sometimes, people come to us not to stop smoking but for smoking reduction. It’s a choice they make. We publish a book on reduction. It’s called, No, You Don’t Have to Stop Smoking. You might be interested to read some of it before you visit our Walsall hypnosis branch. Here is a taster.
Myth number 1: Addiction happens because you like something so much you can’t stop using it …
How can this possibly be true? Look at typical addictive substances – tobacco, coffee and alcohol, for example. Take a child who has never had any of these and give them some. If the theory of lethal attraction is right, the child will want more straight away. In fact the first dose of any of these substances is unpleasant, even repellent. You may well remember that reaction yourself. I do. The child has to learn to like the taste of these things.
So the reason you are addicted to tobacco cannot possibly be because it’s so good you can’t stand the thought of not having it. You may well have developed a deep psychological dependence that tries to convince you that you do like the taste, but that is brainwashing and has nothing to do with what I’m talking about here, the physiological dependence on a substance. Just to be quite sure about this, consider whether any substance could be so nice you would be prepared to die for it.
So you and millions of other people know this but it’s so nice, well, you’ll just have to die rather than miss the enjoyment. I don’t think so. Clearly, addiction has nothing whatever to do with pleasure.
TALK WITH OUR HYPNOTIST FIRST
When you enquire about hypnotherapy we will discuss whether it’s what you need. If it is, we will have our Walsall hypnotist phone you, because you will still want to see if you like them. Hypnotherapy is great, which is why we provide it, but your success will also depend on your relationship with the hypnotherapist you see.
