Overcome Alcohol Addiction with Positive Affirmations

Anyone who has ever struggled with alcohol dependence, whether mild, moderate or severe, will recognise that the simple act of stopping drinking does not by itself conquer the problem.

Sure, we may feel better physically once we get through the initial detox period, but we don’t suddenly become a different person overnight.

That is to say, the subconscious programming we have developed as a result of our past drinking still remains alive and well, and continues to be a constant threat to our new found sobriety.

Whilst we might not be consciously aware, we are subject to such mental programming every day whether we know it or not.

In the case of the drinker, this means that consciously or subconsciously we have been repeatedly affirming our choice and our decision to drink, and we use self-talk and repeated thought patterns in which we give ourselves “permission” to act as we do, even in the face of negative consequences.

The habits we have developed, which have for so long supported our drinking, do not suddenly disappear just because we managed to get sober temporarily, and the habitual thought patterns, beliefs and behaviours associated with drinking remain deeply engrained within us.

So whilst the act of quitting is an essential first step, it is only that: the first step.

Defeat your alcohol dependence from the inside out!

In order to fully take control of our drinking it not only requires us to stop the physical act of drinking alcohol, but also to change the mental programming underlying that drinking behaviour.

In other words, to deliberately and systematically change our thoughts, feelings, attitudes and beliefs about drinking, and to truly become a “non-drinker” on every level of our bodies and minds.

One of the easiest and most powerful ways of achieving this is through the use of Positive Affirmations.

Reprogramming Your Subconscious with Positive Affirmations

Affirmations are positive statements describing something which you desire to be true in your life. The conditions you desire may not yet exist, but the affirmation is spoken as though they do.

This works on the principle that your mind believes what you repeatedly tell it, especially when said with conviction and when accompanied by a strong emotional attachment.

They are not just statements that you wish to be true; they are statements that you believe are true for you.

By repeated programming you essentially become the person you have affirmed yourself to be. As Earl Nightingale famously quoted, “Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.”

And another quote by Mahatma Gandhi espouses the same philosophy: “A man is but the product of his thoughts – what he thinks, he becomes.”

Essentially, their message boils down to the following core principle: “You become what you think about most of the time.”

Through the use of positive affirmations, repeated regularly over time, you are deliberately and consciously choosing the thoughts you wish to implant in your conscious and subconscious mind, rather than allowing random programming from your external environment, or the repeated unconscious programming from your past.

Here at Kick-the-Drink, we have developed our own Affirmations Audio Program specifically designed to support anyone wishing to change their thinking about alcohol – to help reprogram the mind during the initial detox period, and to provide ongoing positive programming into recovery and towards permanent, lasting change.
