How to Quit Drinking Alcohol: Find a Way or Make a Way!

Sep 19, 2017 21:33

Description:

At times, you might find that yourself stuck, with no seemingly logical way of moving forwards… No piece of advice or technique seems to hold the answer. You are blocked with nowhere to turn. What do you do?

It's at times like these where you just need to figure out enough to move yourself one step forwards in the right direction, however small that step is. Often, taking that initial step is enough to gain a little bit of height over your problem, to see things from a different perspective, enough to see the next step or two that you need to take. Don't forget, in order to make any of this work, you need to have a goal which you aiming towards, otherwise your steps are merely going to take you around circles.

Tips to Socialize After You’ve Quit Drinking Alcohol

Jul 21, 2017 23:25

Description:

Today we’re going to be looking at changing your social patterns to suit your new alcohol free life.
It’s so important that you try to see your life as a whole, then take it apart, bit by bit. With those parts which have been influenced by your alcohol drinking behaviour, and there will be many of them, you have to do some reinventing.
Sometimes this is going to be a painful process, not because of some of the things that you have to change, but because of the mind work that you have to do.
This mind work involves altering your mindset about alcohol, about the liquid itself, but mostly about how you have allowed that liquid into your life. It involves dissecting how you have surrounded yourself by environments and people who’ve also allow that liquid to become attached to their lives. This is the one road will lead you to a life of freedom from this toxin forever, not just for a week or 30 days, not just for 6 months or a year, but for the rest of your life. It will lead you to a level of freedom which has got absolutely no fear attached to it at all. This freedom gives you the knowledge and the surety that you will never, ever drink alcohol again, that you will never, ever want to drink alcohol again… Enjoy!

Are You Tired After Stopping Drinking Alcohol? How Long Will it Last?

Jul 18, 2017 28:44

Description:

Today’s video is about being tired after you have stopped drinking alcohol. Some people just find that when they quit drinking they don’t get enough sleep. This is completely natural. Your alcohol habits are not built overnight and nor will they be deconstructed overnight. I talk a bit about my own struggle with sleep in the beginning, as well as tiredness. I talk about replacing the alcohol with sugary foods or drinks, how you sleep might be affected, and some suggestions about what you can do.

Don’t Allow the Programming of the past to Control Your Present or Future

Jul 11, 2017 21:09

Description:

We are programmed from birth to look upon alcohol consumption for getting drunk, merry, tipsy, for use in celebrations, to relax, to socialize, to party, to wind-down, and so on and on. It's not just a cultural phenomenon.This happens within families. It happens among friends. In this video, we are going to look at the most obvious programming. We will look at some of the most insidious types of programming: labels. We'll look at how most of this programming is happening on a subconscious level. And we'll look at what you can do about it.

The Alcohol Industry’s Propaganda Machine

Jul 7, 2017 20:41

The alcohol industry, or Big Alcohol (BA), has a sophisticated and powerful marketing machine backing it up, just like cigarettes used to have, and still has in some countries… In this video were going to look at a definition of what exactly is a propaganda machine?

Living the Benefits of Quitting Drinking Alcohol for Good

Jul 3, 2017 32:01

Description:

And there we have it...Day 365...Challenge Done!!!

I have learned so much about so much doing this challenge, from a personal level to a professional level. It has given me a much better understanding of the subject of habit change and in particular changing the alcohol habit - extermination of the habit, to be precise. Hopefully, a lot of that has transferred out to you in these videos.

Today's video is all about living the benefits of not drinking any more. Now, starting every day without a hangover is one thing. It's something that as drinkers we have all experienced, at one time or another. In this video I wanted to talk about what it's like to get away from the whole boozy life. What is it like to get up every morning and not have to think with a drinker's brain any more. What is it like to be free of that self-made mental cage?

If You Don’t Want to Quit Drinking, You Won’t Quit Drinking Long Term

Jul 1, 2017 9:53

Description:

Today, I want to talk about the topic of wanting to quit drinking. If you don't want to quit drinking, you're going to find it very difficult to do this in the long-term. There's a big difference between wanting and needing to quit. Most of us get into quitting drinking because we have to stop, for one reason or another. We know we need to do this, but there is a reluctance to start and once we do start, a period of mourning for our loss. Sometimes this mourning period never ends. That's why you have so many people still referring to themselves as alcoholics even decades after they have taken their last alcoholic drink. What can we do?

Who Are You Blaming for Your Alcohol Problems?

Jun 30, 2017 13:10

Description:

It's one of the easiest things to blame other people or your environment or your talents for where you find yourself today. A much more productive thing would be to examine how much faith you have in your own ability to respond. It's in your responsibility, that 100% responsibility that you know you need, and by looking at your past mistakes. This is where you will find all the answers as to why you are where you are today. As soon as you start to blame anything outside yourself, you give up so much of your own power, you start to shrink back into yourself, not growing, receding. Stop playing the victim to the circumstances that you created.

Alcohol Is Not Your Friend Alcohol Is Your Enemy…

Jun 27, 2017 9:20

Description:

The topic of today's video is looking at how alcohol affects your life, physically, mentally, spiritually,… Through every aspect of your life in fact… Now, it's not that alcohol itself is a damaging substance for your body, it's not. Your body is quite capable of handling small amounts of alcohol, it produces small amounts of alcohol as part of the digestive processes… But, the amount of alcohol that it takes to get drunk are super excessive. Your body has got nowhere near the capacity to deal with this. In the short-term, the damage can be mitigated through other physical elimination processes, through being young, or because every time you suffer the consequences of a hangover, your whole system is trying to tell you to stop through various pain mechanisms… But, we don't listen… We have to get to the understanding that alcohol is not your friend. I hope you enjoy this video.
