You will need to have lived in a cave in past years to have avoided the scary images all over the news relating to binge drinking. Just about everyone has, on some occasions, found themselves dancing the night away, having indulged in one (or six) too many bevies.
We live in a very stressful world, and every day our lives get busier, and with it the need to have some form of escapism grows stronger. It is not surprising we turn to alcohol. Visit a town centre on a weekend and everyone is out letting off steam, having fun. Rivalry between bars is brutal, and offers on drinks are getting progressively more competitive, every single week. A lot of people don’t see it as an issue, after all, it’s just a good night out, right?
Specifically, what makes a few fun glasses of wine develop into binge drinking?
It might possibly shock you to know that you qualify as a binge drinker if you reach for that third glass of wine. The NHS declares that binge drinking is when you have a substantial amount of alcohol (anything over two large glasses of wine) in a short space of time. There are undoubtedly more people out there binge drinking that just don’t realise it. Hypnotherapy can assist those who overdo it on a night out. It can also help those needing to simply cut down on the amount they drink.
Some of us spend a huge amount on drinking sessions; those funds could be contributing towards things that you really want, like holidays, a new car, handbag or even a new pair of shoes. It only takes you cutting out a couple of drinks to see just how much you could save over time. If you go out three times a week and have two drinks instead of three, and each drink is £3.75, you save £585 every year.
There is, needless to say, the health factor. We all know the pitfalls, but when faced with the reality for our own body, it can be a big wake up call. And what about how much binge drinking affects everyday life? From time to time we don’t realise how much time we spend nursing a sore head until we cut out the alcoholic drinks.
You don’t need to beat yourself up over the amount that you are drinking; it’s best to feel good for wishing to make a favourable change. Hypnotherapy tactics for binge drinking can be customised to suit your particular needs – whether that’s total alcohol avoidance, cutting down on nights out or simply drinking soft drinks in some rounds. Your strength and mind power are the keys to your success. Hypnotherapy helps you unlock this potential and have the strength to make more beneficial changes long term.
