Hypnotherapy & AddictionsBy
It appears that many people use chemical substances such as cigarettes, marijuana, recreational drugs, alcohol and over-the-counter drugs to numb their emotional pains and discomforts but then, many times, it becomes an addiction. Alcohol seems to be the most “socially acceptable” chemical addiction that is served in many restaurants and has become a popular phenomenon in the wine-tasting industry. When I was a little girl, growing up in Los Angeles, my grandpa- an immigrant from Sicily- made homemade wine in barrels in the basement. It was only natural that the adults in the family always had a glass or two of wine with their meals. In most cultures, this is acceptable and normal, but it could also be a precursor to an addiction if abused.
Through hypnotherapy, I have been able to help and guide people of all ages to free themselves from addictive behaviors. With any chemical addiction, such as cigarettes, marijuana, cocaine, heroin and alcohol, it actually takes only 72 hours for the addiction to leave the body. After 72 hours, the rest is behavior modification. Through hypnotherapy and life and mindfulness coaching, I teach my clients how to help themselves and how to create healthier, more beneficial habits so they can live a life of freedom.
