Hypnosis

Has anyone undergone hypnosis to try and kick their mental issues or addictions.  I think i want to try it but wanted input from someone who has tried it.  Thanks friends!  Hope you all are doing well and had a good weekend.

Hi,

As addicts we want that quick fix still. It's amazing.

What is it you think hypnosis will do...suppress the root issues? If so, that is dangerous. The idea behind recovery is to get to those issues, face them and learn to deal with them. That is what recovery is. It is healing and I don't think you will get that being hypnotized and if you do it may too much, too fast. I feel it is dangerous and non-productive. I would not trust any doctor who suggests it and is NOT an addiction specialist.

Counseling and outside support is what works best.

Either way you decide, I wish you the best.
