Excessive drinking can be managed with meditation as this can help soothe anxiety and a super agitated nervous system. Underlying anxiety will begin to give way to a sense of clarity and serenity. Beeja Meditation can help to develop the serenity and confidence needed to face old pain and trauma, and to work through harmful cognitive distortions developed as a result of drinking.

  • The problem

    Admitting the problem, is always the hardest first step to take on recovery. 

    We (nearly) all love a drink. But it’s a fine line between drinking to have fun, or doing it to take the edge off things; to relax, or find a means of escape. 

    It’s fair to say we live in an increasingly crazy, and over-stimulating world, where switching off from the action of daily life isn’t easy.  Our brains experience so much agitation that quite often a cheeky sherry, or two, feels like the ideal solution to our overactive nervous system.

    But while it is an alluring short-term fix, it doesn’t offer much as an ongoing strategy. Before long, our brain cells start dying, our liver begins deteriorating, and our brain activity becomes dulled and ceases functioning nearly as well as when we’re free of the grog.

    The most evolved part of the brain, the prefrontal cortex, is the one that suffers the worst impairment. This has enormous ramifications for us because it is the home of our creative thinking, our rationality, our organisational capability, our ability to problem solve and our ability to feel love, compassion and empathy.

    What starts as a crutch can turn easily into an addiction which is very hard to get out of. Far too many lives are affected by alcohol abuse.

“One reason I drank was that my brain would get to a level of agitation, and one thing that was incredibly effective at diminishing the agitation was alcohol. For me… meditation is an effective tool at diminishing agitation and because it was agitation that often led me to drink, it's lack - the lack of restlessness - makes me less inclined to do so.” “When I’m doing it every day, the quality of my life internally just improves”

"..I managed to switch off for long enough to get that floaty feeling people from Brighton swear by."
"I have a lifelong tool that has brought me calm, clarity and increased creativity"
"I've noticed that I’m no longer ruled by emotions – I can see when I’m angry or frustrated without being in that feeling.”
