I was quite sceptical that anyone would be able to assist me kicking the addiction, let alone through hypnotherapy. But in under an hour I was free of Diet Coke forever.
After over 25 years of addiction to Diet Coke where I was drinking between 6 to 18 cans a day, I am over the moon to have become free of the poison. Whoop! You may view Diet Coke as harmless, and of course compared to other illegal addictive substances you could argue that it is. But Diet Coke is not good for you, and in the quantities I was drinking it, definitely not. Evidence now shows that just 40 minutes after drinking a can the potentially deadly combination of caffeine and aspartame creates a short addictive high similar in the way cocaine works. It's no wonder it hooked me. Excitotoxins are released which may exhaust your brain by overstimulating its neuroreceptors, especially if consumed on a regular basis.How I got off cokeQuite by chance really. It was in a meeting with a potential new client, Kevin Porter from Transformational Hypnotherapy that Kevin started to tell me about all the strings to his bow and the journey that he has been on to date. We got on, and I thought 'sod it' I'll give this hypnotherapy thing a go.I was quite sceptical that anyone would be able to assist me kicking the addiction, let alone through hypnotherapy. But in under an hour I was free of Diet Coke forever. Even more mind blowing, it was very relaxing and simple, for the most part I was just sitting on a extremely comfy chair with my feet up, fully conscious but relaxed. Even with my childish giggling Kevin worked his magic. He spoke to my subconscious mind, and it actually gave a signal back!This took place on the 23rd of October. I have not drunk Diet Coke since our session. At all. On the 22nd October it would have been unthinkable for me to do a car journey without a can, let alone over a week.So whilst it is not long, I have never felt like this on any of the attempts to stop before. I just don't have the desire for it now. In fact I just had to check my calendar to see when our session was, as drinking coke feels so long ago.Life after cokeMe without Diet Coke feels strange but brilliant. I have to say I have a few breakout spots right now, and have been slightly more dippy this last week than normal, but I can live with all of that. For the freedom! To not have to consider something that occupied my thoughts every day has made me feel lighter. I'm telling everyone I meet like I'm six years old. I am so proud of myself, even though it was actually Kevin who did the hard work. Learn more at: www.victoriasedgewick.com
