I get asked about this from time to time and quite a few family members have had great results with AA. But for less hard core drinkers, I thought this post was a very good one.
“Affirmations are prepared positive thoughts that you repeat to yourself, out loud over and over again. If you say something often enough, eventually your mind begins to believe it. By repeating a positive affirmation, you reprogram your thought patterns in a positive direction. When you convince your mind that you are a person for whom addiction holds no attraction, it begins to become true. Millions of people have proven the benefits of positive affirmations over and again.
Greet yourself each and every single morning with a brilliant smile and say something like “Hey there handsome, you are going to beat this addiction to alcohol cos you are strong, powerful, independent and deserving of a healthy and strong body”….. Say it again during quiet periods of the day and before falling to sleep at night……… look yourself in the mirror when you do it so as you have visual affirmation and look yourself in the eye when you say it and say it with strength and determination♥
