How to Overcome Drug Addiction With Help From Self Hypnosis


Visitors: 218

You have the ability to overcome drug addiction within yourself. It doesn't matter if you are addicted to cocaine, marijuana, prescription medication or alcohol, you can get treatment for the substance abuse problem. If you enter a formal rehabilitation program, you can augment with self-hypnosis to maximize the benefits of your treatment.

Rehabilitation through Willpower

When you seek to rehabilitate from a substance abuse problem, you have a number of options. You can try to use your own willpower in overcoming your addictive state but this often falls short without the proper support. Self-rehabilitation is very difficult for a number of reasons.

You feel completely alone in the process, making it very difficult to stay on track. It is also problematic because you are not likely to hold yourself accountable. Falling back into the cycle of substance abuse is far too easy when you are trying to use willpower without self-hypnosis as a support.

Rehab Facilities

Seeking to overcome drug addiction in a rehab facility is much more productive but there are some drawbacks to consider. If you don't augment your treatment with self-hypnosis, you are more likely to revert back to your old ways. This is because you are relying on outside influences to support you.

When you depend on a formal program and other people in your treatment of substance abuse, you do not always develop enough intrinsic motivation to carry you through when you are on your own. These programs are very effective when you are in the facility. Augmenting them with self-hypnosis helps you adopt the new habits intrinsically.

Overcome Drug Addiction Intrinsically

Intrinsic motivation is a very important factor to consider when triumphing over substance abuse. When you use self-hypnosis as part of your approach to addressing addictive tendencies, you are using a proactive strategy that involves intrinsic motivation more than outside influences. This approach also makes you realize that the power to win is within yourself.

The subconscious mind controls your habits. When you try to change your habits on a conscious level, the subconscious mind resists. In effect, you struggle with yourself as you try to make progress. This internal struggle causes anxiety and doubt, leading to feelings of failure. These components can lead to a major setback.

Self-hypnosis helps you by reprogramming your mind to respond differently to temptation. You automatically change your outlook and your inner beliefs, making your willpower stronger on a conscious level. This leads to feelings of confidence in your self.

You also learn that you have control over your addictive traits. The drugs and alcohol do not have control of you. When you use self-hypnosis as a treatment approach, you learn how to take the reins on your habits. It becomes very easy for you to resist temptation and change your lifestyle. You will overcome drug addiction once you learn that you can.
