Assess your alcohol drinking

It is easy to put off reducing alcohol for another day. Many people decide to have less alcohol after the weekend but each Monday fail to stick to the reduced alcohol plan. I have devised these simple questions to help you understand your alcohol drinking habits better so you can be inspired to finally take back control. Answer the questions honestly with yourself.

1. How much alcohol do you drink and how often? e.g. 1 bottle of wine per night 4 times per week and 1 and a half bottles each night of the weekend. 2. How has your alcohol drinking increased over the last years? (e.g. from a couple of glasses per night to 1 bottle a night in the last 5 years). 3. Was there an event in your life which triggered drinking more alcohol? e.g. divorce, the stress of a job, becoming a parent, etc etc.. 4. Is there pressure from family or friends to drink alcohol? In what way? 5. How is your sleep? Do you wake in the night? How many times do you get up? 6. Has your alcohol drinking ever caused you embarrassment? How? At which events? 7. How would you sum up how you felt about your alcohol drinking in a sentence? 8. Where do you drink alcohol? e.g. home, bar, friends/relatives house, on your own, etc etc... 9. Have you ever drunk alcohol to give you confidence or help you have a good time? Think about why. 10. Would you like to take control of alcohol rather than alcohol controlling you?

Your drinking built you over time through a series of habits and patterns. You can break those habits to take back control of alcohol again. Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool to help.

Read my book "Cut The Crap & Feel Amazing" by Hay House. Chapter 4 helps you to make good choices and decisions and Chapter 13 deals with addictions and obsessions. Try my hypnosis recordings: "Take Control of Alcohol" "Stop Binge Drinking for Women" "Stop Binge Drinking for Men"
