Addiction Explained

Addiction is a compulsive need and use of substances such as alcohol, nicotine, or drugs. When you are addicted to something, your tolerance for that substance or activity (gambling and porn can be characterized as addictive activities) increases and going without that produces definite physiological changes, and this is known as withdrawal.

Addiction can’t be outsmarted. It is not a defect of character, and it is more than a bad habit. At the root of addiction is often a desire to escape physical and/or psychological pain or uncomfortable emotions. As an addict, It is common to think you are alone in your suffering, but approximately 20.6 million people suffer from some form of addiction in the United States.

How does hypnosis get rid of an addiction?

Hypnosis can help individuals get rid of their addiction in a non-intrusive way. AA and 12-step programs, while effective, are not for everyone. Hypnosis may be a preferable alternative for those who are uncomfortable speaking in groups. Hypnosis can also be a powerful supplement to those who are 12-step participants but want to supplement meetings with more than just focusing on abstinence.

Hypnosis addresses the emotional and psychological issues surrounding the addiction. The philosophy behind hypnosis is not just to encourage a person to stop drinking or using drugs, but to address why they use drugs or drink in the first place. Hypnosis gets to the core of the illness rather than just treating the symptoms. Instead of teaching someone they are powerless against their addiction, hypnosis helps people fix their coping mechanisms by solving their underlying issues.

What are benefits/what can you expect from hypnosis addiction therapy?

The hypnotherapy process puts someone into a deeply relaxed state, a place where you are somewhere between being asleep and awake. You are aware of your surroundings, yet unable to direct your focus which opens your unconscious mind consciously. This allows you to receive suggestions more willingly. Hypnotherapy techniques are created to change brain triggers, stop self-sabotage issues, release trauma and redirect the neural networks in the brain. During work with a hypnotherapist, he/she will explain your behavior to you, create a strategy for change, help you change via hypnosis and/or visualization, and then evaluate your progress. Unlike what is portrayed in movies and TV, hypnosis can’t force you to do anything you don’t want to do. Hypnosis is not magic or party trick. It is a respected, scientific process that helps beat addiction.

The experts at the Orlando Hypnosis clinic say that many people find that hypnosis calms the mind, body, and releases stress and anxiety. For those who averse to taking pills, hypnosis can be a helpful alternative for them. Hypnosis is quick, easy, safe, effective. Those who undergo hypnosis experience fewer, less painful withdrawal symptoms. Hypnotherapy is not just about getting you sober but keeping you sober.  It is important to note that while hypnotherapy is effective, it shouldn’t be used as one’s primary therapy. Do not agree to undergo hypnotherapy treatment with anyone who is not a licensed mental health professional.
