The Alcohol Industry's Propaganda Machine

Don’t Allow the Programming of the past to Control Your Present or Future

We are programmed from birth to look upon alcohol consumption for getting drunk, merry, tipsy, for use in celebrations, to relax, to socialize, to party, to wind-down, and so on and on. It’s not just a cultural phenomenon.This happens within families. It happens among friends. In this video, we are going to look at the most obvious programming. We will look at some of the most insidious types of programming: labels. We’ll look at how most of this programming is happening on a subconscious level. And we’ll look at what you can do about it.

Living the Benefits of Quitting Drinking Alcohol for Good

Living the Benefits of Quitting Drinking Alcohol for Good

And there we have it…Day 365…Challenge Done!!!

I have learned so much about so much doing this challenge, from a personal level to a professional level. It has given me a much better understanding of the subject of habit change and in particular changing the alcohol habit – extermination of the habit, to be precise. Hopefully, a lot of that has transferred out to you in these videos.

If You Don’t Want to Quit Drinking, You Won’t Quit Drinking Long Term

If You Don’t Want to Quit Drinking, You Won’t Quit Drinking Long Term

Today, I want to talk about the topic of wanting to quit drinking. If you don’t want to quit drinking, you’re going to find it very difficult to do this in the long-term. There’s a big difference between wanting and needing to quit. Most of us get into quitting drinking because we have to stop, for one reason or another. We know we need to do this, but there is a reluctance to start and once we do start, a period of mourning for our loss. Sometimes this mourning period never ends. That’s why you have so many people still referring to themselves as alcoholics even decades after they have taken their last alcoholic drink. What can we do?

Who Are You Blaming for Your Alcohol Problems?

Who Are You Blaming for Your Alcohol Problems?

It’s one of the easiest things to blame other people or your environment or your talents for where you find yourself today. A much more productive thing would be to examine how much faith you have in your own ability to respond. It’s in your responsibility, that 100% responsibility that you know you need, and by looking at your past mistakes. This is where you will find all the answers as to why you are where you are today. As soon as you start to blame anything outside yourself, you give up so much of your own power, you start to shrink back into yourself, not growing, receding. Stop playing the victim to the circumstances that you created.

Alcohol Is Not Your Friend Alcohol Is Your Enemy…

Alcohol Is Not Your Friend Alcohol Is Your Enemy…

The topic of today’s video is looking at how alcohol affects your life, physically, mentally, spiritually,… Through every aspect of your life in fact… Now, it’s not that alcohol itself is a damaging substance for your body, it’s not. Your body is quite capable of handling small amounts of alcohol, it produces small amounts of alcohol as part of the digestive processes… But, the amount of alcohol that it takes to get drunk are super excessive. Your body has got nowhere near the capacity to deal with this. In the short-term, the damage can be mitigated through other physical elimination processes, through being young, or because every time you suffer the consequences of a hangover, your whole system is trying to tell you to stop through various pain mechanisms… But, we don’t listen… We have to get to the understanding that alcohol is not your friend. I hope you enjoy this video.
