"Please bear with me as I'm not good at writing these types of things.
My name is Luca and I live in North London with my wife and two beautiful children, however up until 6 months ago things were not going as well for me as they are today. I have worked as a professional chef in London all of my life, I have always worked long hard and unsociable hours.
The pressure of the kitchen is tough for anyone and most of my co-workers drink and use other methods to keep themselves functioning and what they believe to be "feeling good" during a long shift.
For me my problem has always been the drinking after the shift in order to come down from the intensity. As soon as I had finished one of the wait staff would bring me through a double to finish the night and I would have at least 3 more when I got home.
For many years my beautiful wife put up with me as she knew I had a very stressful job and that I used alcohol as my coping mechanism.
At least that was until last year when the restaurant was closed and I started drinking more than before and for no reason whatsoever. I found my self wanting to drink as I was cooking at home and finding my way through half a bottle of whisky whilst watching TV on an evening.
Looking back I am disappointed at myself for how I behaved not only for my wife but also as because for the only time In my life where I had months and months at home with my children, I choose not to be present in the moment with them.
My wife told me that it had all become too much and told me if I did not make a dramatic change she wanted to end things between us. It was at this point I realised that I could not go on like this.
Whilst searching online I came across Clear Minds and decided to give it ago. I sent the team a message and they replied, making me feel comfortable and like I had done the right thing.
I explained to them that I am not interested quitting drinking fully, however when I drink I have no 'Stop' button. I just drink and drink and lose all control. They recommended I try the hypnotherapy package and I started that evening.
All I can say is Thank You from the bottom of my heart. After finishing the session I cried, I woke up and instantly felt different. I felt a calm sense of comfort and warmth and I felt like I could see things clearly. Just like everyone, I knew the negative effects of alcohol and yet I drank it anyway. Now it is a like a switch has been triggered and my brain makes the decisions based on the knowledge rather than some strange need to self destruct.
I still listen to the audio therapy once a week in order to maintain the person I have become and keep on track. I still enjoy one or two glasses of red wine with a meal, but that is all I want and then I stop. I know that this will not harm me and is perfectly acceptable. I feel like I am in control.
My wife has said It is like I have gone back to when we first met. I seem positive, happy and full of energy. It is like we have fallen in love with each other all over again, I feel more drawn to her than ever and crave our time together.
I feel a bit weird saying this about myself but what pleases me the most is the fact I know that I am now being a good father and the Dad my children deserve. I can see that they will only grow up once and I am going to make sure they have memories of me that they treasure. I cannot go back and change my past, but that is OK for me now. I am focusing on mine and my families future as that is all that matters to me now. I will leave this review by saying this, If you are thinking about trying this I would highly recommend it.
It is normal to be dubious or think it will not happen to you, I felt like that at first also. However I tried it and I can say that every aspect of my life has improved, not just for me but also for the the people around me that I love the most."
