    Pink Cloud Syndrome
    http://alcoholmastery.com/pink-cloud-...

    Pink Cloud syndrome is "recovery" jargon which refers to somebody who speaks about how great it is to be free of alcohol, how great life is, and how the reality has improved so much. In the twisted vernacular of the recovery industry, this means that the person is out of touch with reality.
    Hahaha is all I have to say! It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous that the recovery industry has a name for if you're still feeling crap after you have quit drinking…Post Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) and then Pink Cloud Syndrome, for when you're too happy.
    This means that there is no real middleground…As AA likes to say, once an alcoholic always an alcoholic… Anything outside of that is out of touch with reality…

    You Have To Plan For Context In Any Behaviour Change

    You Have To Plan for Context in Any Behaviour Change
    http://alcoholmastery.com/you-have-to...

    You have to understand the context in which you want to change a behaviour. Obviously, with alcohol drinking, the basic idea is to stop putting this stuff into your mouth.

    So, the contextual element of this comes into play when you are figuring out what triggers your drinking, where you drink, who you drink with, how much you drink, the time of day you drink, and so on…

    These are all contextual markers.

    You also have to identify the context of the new behaviours you would like to acquire.

    It is neither. Alcoholism is a choice and has more to do with willpower and self control than it does anything else.

    Who Do You Need to Become To Quit Drinking Alcohol?
    http://alcoholmastery.com/who-do-you-...

    One of the best parts about quitting drinking alcohol is that you necessarily have to change many parts of your life to accommodate your new self. Think about this. This is a wonderful opportunity to get a fresh start, to become the person who you really want to be.
    On the other side of the coin, in order to get to that place where you never look at alcohol again, never desire another drunken night, you have to become a different person… It's necessary… you have to alter your thinking on a very fundamental level.
    In this video I talk about changing on the inside which precipitates change on the outside. How to push yourself to take those actions and how it all begins with altering your thoughts.

    Can You End Up in Hospital From Quitting Booze?

    The question today is: can you end up in the hospital from quitting drinking alcohol?
    The quick answer is, of course you can. But, you can end up in the hospital for drinking too much water. You have to ask yourself why you're in the hospital in the first place. Is it because you quit all of a sudden and you're in the hospital because you quit drinking? Or is it because you were drinking all that stuff in the first place? How many people have to pay a hospital visit because they have been drinking alcohol?

    5 Ways to Stop Doubting Yourself - Work Hard and Make it Happen
    http://alcoholmastery.com/5-ways-stop...

    I think one of the biggest things that stops people from achieving things is their fear of failure. But in reality, it's doubt that starts the whole ball rolling. Doubt about your talent, about your skills, about your abilities, about your intelligence, and so on, are the things that even prevent you from trying. Doubt is something which precedes fear, which ignites and inflames fear, which stops most people from even pushing a little bit outside of their comfort zones.
    You've heard the old saying that belief can move mountains… Well, doubt can construct those mountains… How do you avoid this? Build more belief!
    In this video I'm going to be talking about planning, overthinking, using your past doubts, avoiding spinning your thoughts out of control, and keeping an air of confidence about you.

    Counting days in the long-term is not something that I would advise. It keeps you firmly tethered to alcohol thinking, recovery thinking, past thinking… However, the first 30 days are an important time. This is where most of the habit "ungluing" will happen. So, it's a great milestone to get to your first 30 days…

    In today's video, I'm going to talk about quitting when the going gets tough. There is no easy way out of a strong habit. The only way you get rid of any embedded habit, especially where a drug is involved, you have to break it down bit by bit.
    You can create an internal culture of failure by giving into temptation. I'll talk about some of the problems of quitting and not following through and some of the things you can do about it.

    A huge obstacle that you will have to overcome when you quit drinking is the brainwashing that society forces on us from the day that we were born. To completely get away from alcohol drinking and thinking, we have to change the way we view alcohol… alcohol within our culture, our families, our social circles, and especially in our own thinking. One of the main areas of alcohol propaganda comes from our environment. This video tries to your mind to some of that brainwashing.

    Most things that happen in life are irrelevant, in the grand scheme of things… Very few things that are said or done will make a difference… Very few people in your life will make a difference…

    I love that!

    It means that once you figure out what really does make a difference in your life, what matters, you have something worthwhile to focus all your energies on…

    Doesn't that make life a whole lot easier?

    Calling any substance abuse problem a disease is a total cop-out. The people that run those $4o,000 a month club med type re-hab centers are the ones who came up with that myth. Re-hab is a big money making business, just like the prison, and court systems. I've had my own issues with substance abuse in the past. I blame no one but myself. Now, some people need help, or more help than others kicking any habit, I'll agree to that.

    When we fail at something, it's usually down to a skills deficit, which means it is fixable. It's not because of a defecit in you personally, only in what you know, or don't know.

    Success in Quitting Drinking Alcohol Doesn't Happen by Chance
    http://alcoholmastery.com/success-in-...

    The habit of drinking alcohol doesn't happen overnight. It takes time to build. And it doesn't happen by chance. You have to deliberately put the alcohol into your mouth over and over. If you don't do this, no alcohol habit will ever develop.
    It's the same with quitting alcohol. It takes time to break down any habit and it's not going to happen by chance. It too takes deliberate action on your part.

    IMHO, it's a moot point weather it's a disease or a genetic trait. What I'm more interested is in why we drink.

    I can take it or leave it. I've gone thru a lot of such cycles in my life. Occasionally, I'll have a bad night, like fairly recently, had been fighting a rogue tooth for about a month and couldn't sleep. Usually If I have a drink at night, I fall right off, but I don't do that every night and usually sleep well. But every now than then, for some inexplicable reason, I need to go to hell.

    I know why I drink, and what I'm looking for. I'm looking for oblivion. When the pain of the world becomes too much, one naturally seeks oblivion, and alcohol simulates that, at least temporarily. Here's someone who states it much better than I.

    Amazon Review
    "Intoxication is neither unnatural nor deviant,"quotes Hines, prizewinning writer and regular TLS contributor, at the start of his compendious chronicle, The Pursuit of Oblivion. This pretty much sums up his objective take on drug consumption although he is far less impartial on the policies surrounding the trade and legislation of the drugs industry. This fascinating book examines the history of changing Western social attitudes to drugs, their place in our culture and what they reflect of it. Hines uncovers the strange duality of our love/hate affair with each drug du jour, fuelled by the twin forces of puritanical morality and the desire to be freed from one's conscious self. This is aptly mirrored by the fact that most drugs originated as medicines. While the burgeoning British-controlled opium trade created addicts across China, physicians at home were lauding the narcotic for its healing properties. Even minds as great as Freud's were at one time convinced of the marvellous psychological curative powers of cocaine. But of course, it has also been in the interests of scientific inquiry to further the development and production of drugs because of what they can reveal about the human psyche. And from the age of enlightenment onwards, we have as a culture been obsessed by this desire to look inwards: for as Hines rightly points out, it would be illogical to explore the outside world without also exploring the inner one. The Pursuit of Oblivion is exhaustively thorough and rich in detail but its real beauty is the energy and incisiveness of its writing. Hines is clearly riveted by every aspect of his subject and uses it to paint a colourful and captivating picture of evolving human nature in all its messy, ambivalent complexity. --Rebecca Johnson --This text refers to an alternatePaperback edition.

    http://alcoholmastery.com/the-discomf...

    Most people don't change beyond the inevitable changes that happen TO them. They like to remain in their comfort zones for life.
    All change happens outside of that cushioned life. The best changes that you can make, the self-directed changes, mean that you have to deliberately push yourself out of your comfort zone… That's even more difficult…
    With changes that are forced on you, you have no choice… But there is a choice with self-directed change… It's very easy to run back into your shell, hiding in the comfort of your sheltered self. Stick out the discomfort. It's only on the other side of that discomfort that the truly magical things in life are found.
