Alcohol Abuse

The Thrive Programme for Alcohol Abuse in Wolverhampton

If you drink alcohol simply to feel good, or to avoid feeling bad, your drinking could become problematic.

Alcohol abuse and drinking problems can sneak up on you, so it’s important to be aware of the warning signs and take steps to cut back if you recognise them.

Understanding the problem is the important first step to overcoming it.

Understanding Alcohol Abuse

Alcoholism and alcohol abuse are due to many interconnected factors, including genetics, how you were raised, your social environment, and your emotional health.

People who have a family history of alcoholism or who associate closely with heavy drinkers are more likely to develop drinking problems.

Finally, those who suffer from a mental health problem such as anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorders are also particularly at risk, because alcohol may be used to self-medicate, often called ‘self-soothing’.

Since drinking is so common in many cultures and the effects can vary so widely from person to person, it’s not always easy to figure out where the line is between social drinking and problem drinking.

The bottom line is how alcohol affects you and your life.

If your drinking is causing problems in your life then you almost certainly have a drinking problem.

Do YOU Have a Drinking Problem?

You may have a drinking problem if you…

  • Feel guilty or ashamed about your drinking.
  • Lie to others or hide your drinking habits.
  • Have friends or family members who are worried about your drinking.
  • Need to drink in order to relax or feel better.
  • “Black out” or forget what you did while you were drinking.
  • Regularly drink more than you intended to.

If you think you have a drinking problem we strongly recommend that in the first instance you seek Medical Advice from your GP prior to consulting us for any kind of help.

Signs of Alcohol Abuse

Substance abuse scientists make a distinction between alcohol abuse and alcoholism or alcohol dependency.

Unlike alcoholics, alcohol abusers have some ability to set limits on their drinking.

However, their alcohol use is still self-destructive and dangerous to themselves or others.

Common signs of alcohol abuse include:

  • Repeatedly neglecting your responsibilities at home, work, or school because of your drinking, for example, performing poorly at work, neglecting your kids, or ignoring your commitments because you’re hung over.
  • Using alcohol in situations where it’s physically dangerous, such as drinking and driving, operating machinery while intoxicated, or mixing alcohol with prescription medication.
  • Experiencing repeated legal problems on account of your drinking, for example, getting arrested for driving under the influence or for drunk and disorderly conduct.
  • Continuing to drink even though your alcohol abuse is causing problems in your relationships.
  • Getting drunk with your friends, for example, even though you know your partner will be very upset, or fighting with your family because they dislike how you act when you drink.

The Thrive Programme for Alcohol Abuse

The Thrive Programme is unsurpassed at helping people with ‘problems’ identify and then change their limiting belief systems.

This multi-session course utilises the very latest findings in cognitive psychology and neuroscience research to help a person to understand how a limiting belief may be formed in the first place, through either ‘learned social behaviours’ or by the accumulation of ‘evidence’ based experiences that provide the robust foundations of those belief systems.

Remarkably, it turns out that what we consider to be the ‘truth’ about the ‘way the world works’ amounts to nothing more than what we ‘believe’ to be true rather than what actually is!

The Thrive Programme for Alcohol Abuse will help you to gain a greater level of understanding behind the reasons why you believe drinking excessively is a problem that you cannot solve on your own and then go on to help you do exactly that!
