Cannabis

Many people argue that cannabis is not addictive, but for regular users the habit can be as hard to break as giving up drinking, gambling or smoking. What may have started out as a way of chilling out, destressing, enhancing experiences of social interaction and listening to music, not forgetting getting "the munchies", often develops into a daily routine and a dependence that has far-reaching consequences – both in terms of physical and mental health.

Constant cannabis smoking takes the user into a world where they retreat into themselves and away from interests, loved ones and a zest or enthusiasm for life in general. In a way the use of cannabis promotes a spiral of action whereby the user increasingly turns to it as a means of escape or release and often family and loved ones find it difficult to understand that their concerns go unheeded.

If you feel your cannabis use is getting to the point where it is out of control; where your life is on hold and you feel a sense of inadequacy, shame or powerlessness, then it's time to take action. If you want to get your life back on track, rebuild your relationships with family and friends and enjoy a sense of happiness that is pure and genuine, then a course of hynotherapy could be the answer.

How can hypnotherapy help?

Hypnotherapy – in the same way that it works for many addictions – establishes the reasons that cause the addict to supplement their days with cannabis smoking. It then unravels these principles and replaces them with a positive alterntives. It directly targets compulsive behaviours to remove the craving and bypasses the conscious mind that deals with will power and treats the subconscious mind that deals with your true feelings. Using neuro-linguistic programming in conjunction with hypnotherapy, you will learn the techniques of how to control your mind so that the triggers that cause you to use cannabis are eliminated. Often, after prolonged cannabis use, there is a fear of life without cannabis and this is also something that can be addressed with the use of hypnotherapy, making your chances of successfully beating your habit that much greater.

One of the main factors in successfully treating cannabis addiction is the power of the patient's will to recover. Some people may find there is an immediate effect while others may need a course of sessions until they feel they are completely free of their urges, but without the willingness to succeed the addiction will remain hard to combat.

What cannabis addicts say...



“For the last 35 years, not a day has gone by without using cannabis. Having been unable to stop the habit, I can’t believe I can now say I am drug-free, and have been for the last six months – with no intention to restart. In fact I was spending fifty pound a week, which I am pleased to say I am now using much more wisely. You really have helped me and thank you so much. Your addiction therapy really worked for me and I would recommend it to anybody. Many thanks.”

“Something had to change and now I look back I have lost years to weed. I wish I had addressed the habit earlier. I feel focused and ready to start afresh. It has been a few months since I smoked but travelling to see Russ was well worth the effort.”
