Your deep rooted attitude to alcohol determines if an alcohol abuse problem will develop or not, as the case may be. It depends on whether you drink with a take it or leave it attitude or if you drink because something "deep down" tells you that you have to. Alcohol abuse and the symptoms that can follow it - damage to health, social breakdown etc - isn't something that develops overnight. Habitual or frequent misuse of alcohol leading to an alcohol problem and the symptoms of alcohol abuse is a process, not an event.
During the term of this process the habituated use of alcohol as a means of coping with stress, boredom, loneliness or other problems becomes an habituated response in that through your constant conscious thoughts about it, it becomes imprinted or ingrained on the subconscious, ultimately making the subconscious "think" that alcohol has to be consumed in order to cope with any problems, emotional or otherwise. The subconscious works with what it gets from the conscious mind, irrespective of whether or not what it gets is harmful to you or not.
This is why some people with alcohol problems find it so hard to even seriously contemplate giving it up. It may well be that you've tried several times to turn your back on it, but without long or even medium term success.
It can also be the case that drinking problems develop as an offshoot of the sheer enjoyment derived from situations whereby alcohol breaks the ice in social settings and great fun is had by all, and that in an unconscious effort to continually recreate and repeat these feelings of pleasure and social confidence the drinker becomes in due course a problem drinker, unconsciously and habitually using alcohol in an attempt to fill what has become an emotional void.
There's little need to quote at length the physical and social effects of alcohol abuse as they are well known, suffice to say that, like smokers, problem drinkers are almost all fully aware of the risks they're taking and - on a conscious level - almost all want to stop. However, because the thought processes which cause the urge to drink habitually have become subconsciously rooted, the power of these thought processes and urges overrides any conscious considerations.
So what's the best and most effective way to tackle an alcohol abuse problem and withdrawal symptoms? Attempting to use willpower alone, i.e consciously commanding yourself not to drink, will often prove to be unsuccessful for anything other than short periods of time. Ease of availability of alcohol tends to aggravate this, but that isn't the main cause of failure.
As alluded to above, your deeply rooted attitude to alcohol is where the problem lies, therefore what's required is to change that deeply rooted attitude.
As with all negative habitual behavior patterns, hypnosis and/or self hypnosis represents an effective and acknowledged method of reprogramming the thought processes which create the impulses that cause these habitual behavior patterns, including of course an habitual alcohol abuse problem. Through relaxation and relevant positive suggestion these thought processes are gently but effectively changed in a way that will not only change for the better your "inbuilt" attitude towards alcohol, but will also enable you to deal positively and constructively with any withdrawal symptoms that you may experience. Providing that you actually want to, you most definitely CAN overcome any alcohol abuse problem by harnessing - through hypnosis - the power of your subconscious mind.
