Deal with problem drinking in just one day with me in Nashville!
Quit Drinking Bootcamp is an intensive seminar I take around to world to help people get back in control of their drinking. I am coming back to Nashville on 24th February 2019!
While they always sell out there are many people who dismiss the concept without a second thought.
I understand why.
The commonly accepted narrative around problem drinking is that it is difficult and uncomfortable to deal with. It’s hard to argue against this viewpoint with drinkers because they have experienced that sort of thing for themselves.
Everyone who comes to Bootcamp has already tried to cut back or quit drinking dozens of times before. Every attempt has ended in failure, so to consider that some British guy can lead them out of the loop of alcohol addiction in just one day seems unlikely.
There is a reason people fail to quit drinking
All that said, there is a reason that problem drinking is hard to deal with on your own. Alcohol is a bit like quicksand, the danger does not begin when you start to sink but rather when you enter the area where quicksand is present. The same is true with alcohol.
Your problem begins with the first drink of this highly addictive and very devious drug, not the point where you realize that you are out of control.
Just like quicksand, the more you struggle the deeper you sink. Trying to force yourself to avoid the thing you have become addicted to makes you feel stressed, anxious and uncomfortable. What do drinkers do when they feel such negative emotions? That’s right, they drink!
So, by attempting to deal with a problem they actually create another problem. This keeps people trapped in the narrative that quitting drinking is difficult and unpleasant.
Who is Bootcamp for?
The quit drinking Bootcamp is designed for problem drinkers rather than alcoholics. If you are wondering what the difference is, let me explain.
Problem drinkers are people who are stuck in a loop with their drinking but are not physically dependent on the drug.
For example, they can often go days, weeks or months without a drink. However, they are routinely using alcohol to cope with life or deal with specific problems such as boredom, stress or loneliness.
Alcoholics have abused alcohol so long and to such a heavy extent that their body has become physically dependent on the drug. They can’t go more than a few hours without a drink otherwise they will experience severe symptoms of withdrawal. Such as tremors, sweating, nausea, and vomiting.
These people are not suitable for a Bootcamp because they need round the clock medical supervision.
The psychology of addiction
My quit drinking Bootcamp works so well because I systematically reveal how the drug is performing its illusion. There is not one single benefit to drinking alcohol and yet millions of people believe the opposite to be true. The perceived upside of alcohol consumption is just a smoke and mirrors illusion.
Attending a live Bootcamp is a bit like going to see Penn and Teller. When they first perform an illusion for you, it blows your mind. It appears for all intents and purposes that real magic was on display. Then when they show you how the trick was done it suddenly becomes something entirely different.
What was once magic is now nothing more than a piece of theatre.
You will never be able to watch that same illusion again and see it with the wonder you had upon first viewing. You will never be able to label it as ‘magic’ again.
This is what I do at my Quit Drinking Bootcamp. You will never believe that alcohol has any benefits again.
Changing your beliefs changes reality
Is changing your beliefs enough to stop you drinking?
You bet! Let me explain by asking you a simple question… If you are drinking to get a ‘buzz’, sense of euphoria or even just to deal with stress. Why don’t you use heroin? It’s a much more effective drug!
The simple answer is, you do not believe that adding heroin into your life would be a good idea. Plus there is no social proof around heroin to validate your viewpoint.
We do not do things that we do not believe have a benefit to us.
I am sure that the very suggestion of using heroin is abhorrent to you. Never in a million years would you consider doing such a thing, but why? There really isn’t such a huge difference between the two drugs. Heroin is the most addictive substance in the world, but alcohol comes in at number two.
Plus alcohol kills significantly more people, currently estimated to be around 3,000,000 people every year!
In the western world, we have allowed Big Alcohol to create a bubble of unreality around a dangerous and highly addictive drug.
The drinks manufacturers have peddled a series of lies and fake news.
These companies are no better than the tobacco companies who put greed and profit ahead of the lives of their customers back in the day.
The marketing claims that drinking helps with stress, confidence, pain, boredom and a hundred other spurious issues. It’s all a huge sleight of hand!
Using alcohol to deal with life’s problems is as effective a solution as using a loan shark to deal with your debt problem. You will get a little short-term relief in return for a lifetime of misery.
The best decision of your life.
The vast majority of drinkers avoid dealing with their drinking until things get really serious. Often by this point, it’s simply too late to take action. If you are worried about your drinking, be brave and take a leap of faith. Signing up for my Quit Drinking Bootcamp maybe the best decision of your life.
