Some potential benefits of stopping drinking:
Problems with alcohol may creep up over time or even develop quickly particularly if used to ‘manage’ painful life events.
As alcohol is widely acceptable within our society as a part of everyday life, it often only becomes a problem to the drinker (and less acceptable to society) when the drinker loses their control over alcohol. Often people don’t realise (or don’t admit to themselves) that there is a problem with alcohol until it’s such a big problem that it may seem too difficult to change. Problems with alcohol take various forms. It may be binge drinking – not knowing when to stop. It may be constant, habitual drinking – not stopping. It may be regular drinking – perhaps only drinking at home, or only at weekends/evenings. Whatever the drinking pattern, if the drinker has first admitted to themselves that they have a problem AND that they WANT to change, they will get, by far, the best benefits from any therapy.
Often there are underlying reasons why somebody has a problem with alcohol, such as trauma, grief or other negative emotions. Clients are therefore encouraged to learn and practice healthier coping strategies.
I had quite literally hit rock bottom for the second time in five years. Having heard it all from various councillors and help groups, someone recommended Jo to me. I have to say that from the first meeting I felt that I had found someone with empathy for how I felt. Jo allowed me to talk, but didn’t let me spill everything out all in one go, which a lot of councillors do and sometimes it leaves you feeling ” what was the actual problem in the first place”? We take one problem at a time and work on it. I would also like to say that I felt so at ease with Jo.
After my very first session with Jo I found that my outlook towards alcohol completely changed. I came to realise that I could enjoy myself much more without the need to binge drink and currently apply the same train of thought to many aspects of my life. As a result I have now seen a huge improvement in both my physical and mental health so am eternally grateful. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who wishes to take back control in their lives.
It is possible to cut down, although this route typically takes more effort, discipline and regular maintenance than stopping altogether.
If you think you have a serious drinking problem and are experiencing any of the associated symptoms of alcohol dependence, you should consult your doctor before stopping.
Smoking and drinking often go together. Some clients prefer to do one at a time and others want to do it all at once. It is up to the individual. Contact me to help to decide what might be best for you.
Often clients find that this is the best and easiest way. That said, every client has different circumstances and should be considered on a case by case basis. Book a discovery call to discuss further.
