Hypnosis Treatment for Addiction
In a society where almost everything we could possibly ask for is readily available, it isn’t difficult to understand why people can so easily get hooked on anything from one too many Oreo cookies to that extra martini after work.
It’s not a simple job practicing self-discipline while temptation tugs at every corner but luckily, with hypnosis, you can effortlessly ignore the call of your vices.
When one chooses a treatment plan involving talk therapy, it could take six months or even a year for a breakthrough. However, with hypnosis, I will have you seeing results after the first session.
This may seem like a bold claim but there is an occurrence in the brain when one undergoes hypnosis called neuroplasticity. It physically changes the way your neurons connect and communicate so when you would once reach for a cigarette or a scotch on the rocks to calm your nerves, you will no longer associate negative behavior with a sense of relief.
Our most basic form of consciousness in our reptilian brain tells us to avoid pain and lean towards pleasure, and with hypnosis you can actually “reprogram” or redirect the feelings of pleasure you have towards things that could potentially be causing you pain ie: smoking, drinking, drugs, overeating etc.
Perhaps you think that this is something that is unnecessary. “I’ll quit tomorrow”, “I’ll stop when I’m ready”, everyone has their excuses. The truth is that most of the time we are not driven by logic at all so we can listen to a doctor tell us that smoking will give us cancer, excessive drinking will affect our livers, our cholesterol is too high, etc.
We can hear this information, these threats on our life, and recognize that our behavior is detrimental to our well-being and still continue with it. People who act on emotion rather than logic are not “dumb” for not listening to their doctors or suicidal for partaking in reckless behavior. They simply have an addiction and they need help.
Quitting is not always an option or a permanent fix. You have to kill the problem at the root and hypnosis will permanently adjust your way of thinking so you don’t have to worry about relapsing or feeling withdrawal. You can change your life.
