Ali (name changed for anonymity) saw me for a desire to drink alcohol. A recovering addict, Ali has made the decision to stay away from all drugs except for cigarettes. He is doing wonderfully.

On this occasion, he came to stay on track, after a serious temptation a few nights previously. The incident in question was when Ali, a new love interest, plus a friend and her boyfriend, all went out for a meal. There was alcohol and it was a big temptation to Ali. Upon asking him who made the drinking desire greater or him, it was clear that it was the stranger, the friend's boyfriend, and the attractive lady. Ali said that this was because he felt comfortable and relatively at ease with his friend. We started at an 8 out of 10 in the desire to have alcohol if Ali was to relive that evening. we tapped on the following aspects.

  • “People are judging me at this table I fear they don't like me”
  • “My world will collapse”
  • “I judge myself by how much people like me”
  • “I need people to like me”
  • Uncertainty of how to proceed with the potential new girlfriend and ask her out on a date

After tapping all these aspects of the social anxiety, Ali reported that if he were to relive that evening, his  desire for an alcoholic drink would be zero. Then I asked him to lose his eyes and imagine himself he was there, imagining vividly the sights, sounds, smells, where he was sitting, etc. He did, and the desire was still zero. It was a success.

We finished by working on self-love in general terms. We increased Ali's self-love when in in a particular situation. This was in front of strangers. It improved from a 40 percent to a 45 percent. This is a work in progress, and Ali is doing marvelously. Thank you so much, Ali, for allowing me to publish your story.
