The Man Who Helps People To Quit Drinking

Alcohol wasn’t always a problem for me, for a long time I LOVED it!

People considered me to be the life and soul of the party… a man who could handle his drink! I was proud of this reputation, and at this point, it didn’t worry me in the slightest.

I am not sure at what point my drinking habit changed from ‘social pleasantry’ to be a primary focus of my day-to-day life.

Alcohol Lied To Me

Such is the deceptive nature of this drug; it takes so long to get hooked that you don’t even notice there is a problem (until it is too late).

Alcoholism is very much like the old story of the frog in the boiling pan of water… If you drop a live frog into a boiling pan it will jump straight out of the water in shock, but if you place the frog in cold water and slowly increase the heat it will eventually boil to death – this is alcohol addiction personified.

In my early thirties, I started to question if my drinking was normal, of course deep down inside, I knew it wasn’t, but I was desperate to prove to myself that I wasn’t doing anything wrong. I probably spent five years fighting to keep drinking; I just couldn’t see how life could be worth living without alcohol.

I Was Out Of Control

I was so out of control I refused to go anywhere with my family that prevented me from drinking. Even if I went to the movies, I would sneak a bottle of whiskey into the theater with me so I could add it my big gulp!

Alcohol turned me into a lousy father and a bad husband. I would refuse to go anywhere with the family unless I could be sure I could drink once I got there.

Soon my drinking started to affect my health, and at this point, I started to sit up and take notice. I became very scared about what was happening, and I tried everything I could to wrestle control back from the drug.

How I Got The Old Me Back

I tried locking away my alcohol and giving the key to my ex-wife, I tried going cold turkey, forcing myself to have painful dry months and I even bought dangerous prescription-only medication online.

Nothing made the slightest bit of difference to my drinking.

Eventually, I reached rock bottom… I was at my lowest point, I had tried everything, and yet I was drinking more than I ever had in my life. I was slowly killing myself, and I couldn’t slow down. It was at that point that I decided I had to do something different or I was going to die and leave my children without a father.

How I Quit Drinking Alcohol:

Once I identified the triggers that started me drinking and encouraged me to keep repeating the process it was as though a light bulb flickered into life in my mind.

It was a eureka moment.

It suddenly became so clear to me that I hadn’t previously been able to stop drinking because I believed that alcohol was a benefit that I would be depriving myself of.

Willpower doesn’t work.

I tried to quit drinking a hundred times before and every time I would use willpower in some form. The moment I stopped using this weak, broken solution everything got easy. I no longer had to force myself to avoid the thing I wanted the most on planet earth. I just fell out of love with alcohol.

For problem drinkers (as opposed to full-blown alcoholics) the secret to getting back in control of alcohol is to fundamentally change your belief structure around the drug. I know that sounds too simple a solution to cure a complex problem but it’s not. Chances are good that you don’t use heroin. But Why?

If you are looking for a buzz, then surely you would choose heroin. The reason you don’t is, your programming around heroin is perfectly aligned. You understand (and firmly believe) that adding a drug like this into your life would be a profoundly bad idea.

You Are 100% Right

With alcohol, your programming is corrupted. That’s all!

You are not a bad person or weak-willed or any of the other horrible labels you give yourself in your lowest moments of guilt and regret.

When I realized just how many people I could help, I took the exact same approach I had used to fix my own problem drinking and created an online course for other people to follow.

Since then over 100,000 people have discovered their own happy, sober life – want to be the next?
