I almost didn’t believe when a Soviet-Trained Physician who was a student in one of my hypnotherapy certification courses about two years ago told me about some of the techniques mentioned in this article. He told me that he used hypnosis and other waking hypnosis techniques to scare alcoholics sober, and that it was “standard opperating proceedure.” For me that is what makes this article so interesting. And, of course it begs the question, is it right to lie or use overly paternalistic hypnotic techniques to sober-up an alcohol abuser?
Whether you agree with it or not, the good news is that this kind of work is no longer necessary. Now with age regression based hypnotherapy the cause of the alcohol abuse can be uncovered and neutralized.
