My name is Alexander. I am here to tell you about hypnosis, I know many of you saw those shows on TV were people start acting weird after they got hypnotized. But there are two kind of hypnosis: the one that is used in show and the one that is used in medical purposes. IaEU(tm)m here to tell you about the second one.
But first let me tell you a little bit about my background. When I was little I had a lots of health problems (from broken arms and legs to chest pain). My arms and legs were broking from doing nothing, once I try to get up, I was laying down the floor, and my left arm just broke. This was happening because I have a calcium problem, my body doesn't assimilate calcium, well it does but in very small quantities. The chest pain were from a heart complication I found out I have when I was 16 years old, I wasn't supposed to do any kind of sport, when I try to do any kind of sport I simply black out.
Anyway, so I didn't get to play too much with the children that were my age, they run away from me because they thought I had a very weird health problem - and you know how kids are, they tend to amplify everything. Time passed and because I didn't have a normal childhood my social skills were a mess, also I start thinking that I was no good and that is why people are running away from me. That's when I decide to lock myself in a tower, never let people get too close to me so I won't have to suffer when they would find out what my problems were and leave.
But like any other human being, I need love and affection - I got a lot from my parents, but it wasn't the same. So I decide to start playing games because in those virtual places people wouldn't see me and I could be anyone I want to. So that's how come I became addicted to games.
I still manage to get a life, but also I was unconsciously removing friends from my life, like a self-defence system. I even got a girlfriend that love me so much that she was able to persuade me to let her stay and take care of me. I thought my life was changing, but I couldnaEU(tm)t quit WoW, after all I was playing for more then 4 years. Because I couldnaEU(tm)t quit WoW, she started to get away from me. I know you will say I was a moron and that is the truth, I was, but if you ever had an addiction you know how hard it is to give up. Especially if you are using the wrong tool (will power didnaEU(tm)t help me back then).
5 Months ago, an old friend came to me and said: aEUoeAlex, we are friends from back when we were kids, what in the world happened that made you change like this. We don't go out, were not having fun any more, you are not the person I know and I care about. Back, when we were little you were a funny person, always laughing and taking care of everyone."
I told him everything and he started to laugh and he said he will do anything to help me, just like I help him when we were kids.
After a couple of days, he came to me with an audio-recording. He said to me: aEUoeDo you trust me?aEU - Of course I do, you came to save me, and so even if it doesnaEU(tm)t work I still appreciate what you are trying to doaEU. He told me to take a sit and relax, and then he played the audio. I really don't know what happened because it was like a dream; a strange voice was talking to me making me realize that I was living a virtual life. I recall during that session, his brother came in and asked if I was sleeping and my friend said to him: no, he's not sleeping...he is getting his life back. Then suddenly I "woke up" and I ask him: For how long was I asleep? He laugh and reply: You were never asleep, the hypnotherapist just said you should come back from your relaxed state and that's what happened.
After that he left and said he will call me next day to go out for a walk. When he left I got back to my PC, eager to find out more about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I was amazed to find out how hypnosis was used to treat different phobias, birth giving, gaining self-confidence and others things.
From that day, I quit WoW for good and start to look at life with different eyes. Now itaEU(tm)s very easy for me to talk to people, make new friends and receive all the love I need. Hypnosis change my life, change the way I think and IaEU(tm)m very pleased with all those changes.
My relationship with my future wife got better; we are having a lot of fun together and she confessed to me that if I didnaEU(tm)t made these changes she would have left me for good.
So in case you never tried hypnosis, I think you should really give it a try. IaEU(tm)m sure it will help you just like it helped me, because hypnosis is working on your unconscious mind, the part of our mind that we use a lot but we donaEU(tm)t have direct access or we donaEU(tm)t know how to access it.
Another thing that I love about hypnosis is that it can make you kill your fears. I had a problem with heights. So I stood and thought about my problem, I recall when I was 18 years old I would go on top of building, so me and my friends can make our own pcaEU(tm)s network. So, if back then I wasnaEU(tm)t afraid of heights how can I be afraid now? What chanced from when I was younger?
The only thing that chanced is the way I think. So now I went on a trip by plane. And guess what, I didnaEU(tm)t have any problem at all. It was only a trick my mind played on me. ThataEU(tm)s why IaEU(tm)m saying, once you know how to look at your problems you will find out that there are not really problems, itaEU(tm)s just our mind making worst case scenarios.
The bottom line is that hypnosis can really help you get rid of your gamming addiction and change the way you think about life. Also, since IaEU(tm)m using hypnosis I have a better time sleeping; itaEU(tm)s like a new body I got. I still have those health problems but I know if I donaEU(tm)t do any sports and if IaEU(tm)m careful nothing wrong will happen.
If you would like to know more about hypnosis I will be more then glad to assist you.
May all of you have a beautiful holydays and all your dreams come true. Also, try as hard as you can to give up your gaming addiction, is not good for you and is no good for those that care about you.
Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
