Habits and addictions

Most addictions and habits have an emotional and an habitual component. There are often also triggers that trigger off the behaviour. The behaviour may relieve stress or tension (emotion), or give you pleasure whilst you are doing the behaviour. The behaviour was probably learned, it is unlikely you were born doing the behaviour - and, provided there is enough motivation, the behaviour can be stopped.

Positive and negative habits

Everyone has habits and addictions, some good and some bad. At the time of creating the habit or the addiction, the sub-conscious mind did so for what it believed to be a positive reason. Over time the good habits, became negative. Although your conscious mind may decide to cease those habits your unconscious mind (the part that is in control) still believes the habit is performing a positive function. It is the impasse between the conscious and the sub-conscious that prevents you from resolving the issue.

Hypnosis can help

Hypnosis allows us to directly access the sub-conscious mind, and make the changes that will break the habit or addiction and replace it with new positive actions.
