Q : Isn't the general consensus in the media that a glass or two of red wine is good for your heart?
A: This is not true! The only safe way is to quit alcohol. If this were true, we would all be happy to drink the fresh grape juice, and leave out the alcohol. But we don’t. Or we could drink red wine vinegar – after all, that contains the same anti-oxidants as the red wine! But we don’t.
- Recent analysis of the earlier studies into the health benefits of drinking red wine have discovered that the results were flawed!
- The revised study found that any link between moderate drinking and improved health was based on flawed science
- The original study compared moderate drinkers to complete abstainers, but the group of abstainers included a high proportion of people who had quit alcohol due to poor health, so essentially they set up a situation where the abstainers had worse health (more than likely due to previous alcohol habits) than the drinking group!
- This is worse than flawed science, this is actually using alcohol induced illness to make alcohol seem like a saviour! Nothing could be further from the truth!
- Even more subversive is that I suspect the researchers did not want to believe that alcohol is harmful, such is the power that this poisonous addictive chemical has over us all. Even the researchers didn’t want to stop drinking!
Q: Do you have medical qualifications to counsel people?
A: No – we do not claim to have professional qualifications to quit alcohol – but who does? We are aware of the side effects of quitting alcohol cold turkey, and advise people to consult with a physician prior to doing anything sudden. What we offer is the method to stop drinking that we have developed from our own experience in taking this journey. We have experienced the pain and anguish brought about by our inability to control this addictive chemical. Once we understood the lies and deception that our cultural conditioning has come to accept about alcohol, we have set about helping others to stop drinking, and to stay stopped. We want to offer people a chance to benefit from the health changes after quitting alcohol. You will be amazed and surprised how quickly the body changes after quitting drinking. We have found the easiest way to quit drinking. We want to show you how to stop drinking and stay stopped!
Q: Do I need will power to quit alcohol, and will I be strong enough?
A: The short answer is NO! Our method for helping you to stop drinking alcohol absolutely does not rely on your will power alone. If we did rely on will power – none of us would be able to defeat a poisonous and addictive drug like alcohol by ourselves. It is simply not enough to say to yourself “I have to quit drinking!” because this relies on will power. Using our method to overcome the urge to drink and to overcome the cravings brought on by consuming alcohol, we will demonstrate to you that you can be strong enough to overcome your alcohol habit without relying on will power. We can show you how to stop drinking now – No Fuss!
Q: If alcohol is so bad, why don’t they ban it completely?
A: This is a completely reasonable question, and I personally think alcohol is the new tobacco – in other words, it is quickly becoming less socially acceptable. For example, it is widely acknowledged that drinking in public or in the presence of children is no longer socially acceptable behaviour.
- Have you heard of the Prohibition era? In the 1920’s, there was a social outrage against the prevalence of alcohol in the United States, and the perceived damage to society was such that the sale of alcohol was officially prohibited. As is the way with humans and addictive behaviour, the production and sale of alcohol was immediately driven to the black market, and continued, almost unabated. In short, prohibition didn’t work and even laws were not adequate to make people stop drinking.
- We can show you how to stop drinking without AA.
- Every year in the United Kingdom, there is a nationwide push to reduce smoking on one day, in an effort to cut back on a similarly addictive and harmful drug habit. Do you know what actually happens? Consumption actually increases on that day! There is a pattern here with humans and addictive behaviour – take away the desirable drug, and our subconscious mind will do almost anything to return to our perceived state of pleasure.
Q: Should I cut back on drinking, or quit alcohol completely?
A: I say stop drinking!
Most professional advice available on the internet and through your family medical practitioner suggests that it wise to “reduce your alcohol consumption”, and to observe the “safe” limits which have been established in a bid to prevent alcohol induced illness.
Although I am not a medical professional, I fail to understand this advice on several accounts:
- If alcohol is known to be bad for us (Yes it is!) then how do we know what level is safe?
- If alcohol is known to be bad for us in the short term, then how do we know that even safe limits will be safe in the future? It will be too late once you have been drinking “safely” for 20 years, and then they say, “oops – turns out it wasn’t safe after all.” This has happened!
- How do safe limits work when you are dealing with an addictive drug, which is readily available throughout our society? Do they really expect that the general population will be able to resist the cravings, the urges, the addictive patterns, and actually stop drinking when they reach the safe limits? I seriously doubt it!
- If alcohol is known to be a poisonous and addictive drug, how can the average person in society be expected to overcome an insidious problem which is almost universally and socially accepted, and to do this using will power alone?
- We will show you our tips to stop drinking.
- You will find immediate benefits of quitting alcohol.
- We can show you a safe and simple way to stop drinking on your own.
Quit Alcohol for good!
Q: What if I try to stop drinking alcohol and fall off the wagon?
A: It does not matter if you try and fail – at least you recognise that you want or need to stop drinking alcohol, and that is the most important thing. If you try and fail, I encourage you to keep trying! Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb tried and failed almost 10,000 times before he finally got it right – but it was worth it! And so are you, you are worth more than what alcohol can give you, and you will definitely reap the rewards in the long run. Learning how to quit alcohol is a process, and not everyone will follow exactly the same path. Let us show you the process we have developed, and how we achieved success.
Q: Is there such a thing as a Hangover Cure?
A: No there is not! But what a marketing opportunity – give everyone a poisonous chemical cocktail, and then sell them a remedy cure the next day! Does this sound absurd? Actually it is the reality in our crazy society where we believe everything we are told by persuasive advertising campaigns, and million dollar promotional endorsements. If you don’t believe me, do a search on “clean vodka” which is currently being marketing as a “pure” form of alcohol which does not contain the contaminants which can cause a hangover – because as we know, it can’t be the alcohol which causes the problem? Oh yes it is!
The only way to avoid a hangover, is to stop drinking in the first place!
Q: What harm can alcohol cause to my body?
A: Where do we start? Alcohol is poisonous to your liver, it kills brain cells, it reduces your natural instincts to protect yourself from harm (hence causing increased likelihood of harm), it increases the ageing process, it causes wrinkles on your face, it reduces your ability to function properly the next day. It causes many indirect consequences such as causing weight gain due to excessive calories, it reduces your productivity, it increases stress and anxiety, and results in brain fog. Alcohol creates an excessive flood of dopamine in the brain, which creates the craving for more and more dopamine. The more we drink, the brain’s dopamine receptors become less stimulated, and thus require more dopamine to keep us feeling happy. This can result in a downward spiral that makes us feel less happy, unless we consume more and more alcohol. This is a direct link to depression, whereby the body cannot produce satisfactory levels of naturally occurring dopamine, such that we no longer find happiness in our normal daily life – how sad! The good news is that if you stop drinking you will be amazed at how the body changes after quitting alcohol.
Q: What is a functional Alcoholic?
A: This description is given to those people who seem to be able to hide their addictive habit behind a veil of normality. This can be a charade that allows them to perform their everyday tasks in a more or less functional way, but always within a framework of regular consumption of alcohol. This framework becomes a way of managing a lifestyle within the acceptable bounds of normal society where we get up each day, go to work, drop the kids at school, go to the shops, or whatever it is that we need to do each day, but more than likely, operate within a timeframe, or even a closely managed circuit with alcohol being the central motivation. In fact, in some cases, the alcohol consumption of a functional alcoholic can be in excess of what a full blown alcoholic will consume each day, but has become conditioned to handle higher and higher doses of poison, just to get by.
Q: Doesn't alcohol relieve stress? How can I relax if I quit alcohol?
A: No it does not! Alcohol causes stress! The idea that alcohol can relieve stress is yet another myth perpetuated in our society, in order to justify our cravings for the stuff. Sure at the end of a long day, it is relaxing to sit down and think about something other than work stress. But you do not need alcohol to relax. In fact, it is the cravings from yesterday’s alcohol that have caused the feelings of anxiety at around 24 hours from the previous session. To overcome those feelings of anxiety, we generally have another drink of alcohol, thus perpetuating the cycle of cravings and withdrawal, that can only be relieved by having another drink tomorrow. This is a vicious cycle brought about entirely by alcohol, and has nothing to do with relieving our stress at all. The best way to relieve stress is to quit alcohol and avoid the nasty vicious cycle that is caused by drinking.
