Have you heard about Ocsober?
Ocsober began in 2010 as a fundraiser by an Australian Youth Organization used it to raise money for recovery and addiction clinics.
It is similar to the better known “Dry January,” when people swear off alcohol, usually as a New Year Resolution, for January.
Do you automatically pour a glass of wine or cocktail when you come home? And do you stop at one or have a few more throughout the evening?
It can become a costly habit – both in terms of your health and bank account. Alcohol can negatively affect your sleeping which can impact your mood and productivity the next day.
Do you find yourself saying that you wish you could stop doing this, but you don’t know why? Is it an addiction or a habit?
An addiction is when you must have it, whereas it’s a habit if you can take it or leave it. If you didn’t have a bottle of wine cooling in the fridge, it wouldn’t be a big deal. But when you have it, you’ll drink until it’s gone, or you pass out in front of the television. I’m not an addictions expert, so that’s my take on it.
But, if you’ve thought that “maybe it’s time that I didn’t drink so much or just stopped,” Ocsober might be just the boost you need.
“Too much” behaviours like drinking too much are usually done because a distraction from something is needed. Either a distraction from current life events or something deeper-seated from your past.
Either way, hypnosis is a fantastic way to stop “too much” behaviours like drinking too much. I worked with a gentleman a couple of years ago who successfully stopped drinking with hypnosis.
Hypnosis can change the programming around why you drink too much. If this is something that you would like to explore further, I invite you to book a consultation call with me. It doesn’t cost anything, and it could be the conversation that changes your life!
