A testimonial from LB in the Central Belt Scotland, who has successfully completed our programme.
“I should probably start by saying that the Sinclair Method saved my life. It is a bold statement, but there is no other way to describe it.
I knew I was having a problem when a bottle of wine a night became normality. The moment I started hiding empty bottles from my husband was the bottom line. It was also the moment I realised that I couldn’t stop drinking, even if I wanted to. I tried to quit, I truly did. In those periods, the thoughts about a drink would become even stronger and every day without alcohol felt like a torture. Over the past 5 years, my abstinence record was 4 days, after that, I felt like I deserved a reward in a form of a huge glass of wine.
I did my research and I was shocked to learn that the most common cure was just to stop drinking, as it was that easy. The lack of empathy within the society doesn’t help either. I felt like the only way was to admit to the world that I was an alcoholic, a broken person, and to be labelled as such for the rest of my life. I saw Claudia Cristian’s Ted Talk about the Sinclair Method on YouTube and it finally all made sense! For the first time in a long time, I felt like I wasn’t alone, that there is a proper cure. Right after taking the first pill, I felt different and every day since then I saw small differences in my relationship with alcohol. My daily amounts of alcohol were decreasing without me putting any restrictions. The best part was that the abstinence days weren’t a torture anymore – they suddenly became regular days when I just didn’t want a drink! I must say though that the healing is a long and very emotional journey. There will be loads of ups and downs, which is why the support program is so important. I’m so glad I met Bruce. He is an incredible person, truly passionate about his work. Our regular calls made a massive difference in my healing process. He is so easy to talk to, even when it comes to some delicate topics. He also provides support to families and educates them about the disease, which makes a massive difference to everyone involved. His constant encouragement phrases would always cheer me up. Thank you, Bruce, for all the incredible work you do! One small golden rule will change your life forever!” This is the program we are promoting as we see it as a successful and achievable way to help those with this illness. This Testimonial is hopefully the first of many to come.
