Why meditation can help quitting drinking

Forget mindfulness

Have you tried meditation before and struggled? Hard to clear your mind?

Chances are that you tried a mindfulness technique (breath focus, Headspace, Calm etc).

We Meditate uses a much easier approach.

Instead of the breath, you use a self-transcending mantra, a simple word or sound you silently repeat in your head that brings you to inner stillness.

Many people who have tried both mindfulness and a mantra find the mantra approach significantly easier.

What you’ll learn

- A simple meditation technique to reduce stress

- A way to control your impulses and reduce cravings

- How to deal with thoughts during meditation

- A way to improve sleep

- Each recording begins and ends with a few minutes of instruction and has around ten minutes of silent meditation in the middle

- The technique will create new neural pathways in your brain to allow new ways of thinking and behaving

- For the Six Steps course you also get nine live online group seminars plus access to a chat group and buddy system with likeminded people to support you and hold you accountable to your goals

Success stories

Simply works! I'm two weeks in and my mind feels much more clear, I feel relaxed in myself and around alcohol. It’s amazing that 15 minutes a day can be so life changing. Thank you.

Working for me! This is BY FAR the best meditation class I’ve ever taken! 

Heather N.

I was sceptical that this would help, having tried many times before. The meditation eased my cravings dramatically. I'm now 8 days in and have made it through my first weekend without drinking. Feeling great!

Gabrielle, Graduate Student, South Carolina

“After the first meditation I spent the rest of the day feeling calm and relaxed, and slept well for the first time in a while. Not sure if it’s the overall effects of sobriety or the meditation or a combination of both. Rory’s voice puts me in a relaxed state almost immediately.”

Becky, Health Care Assistant, Cheltenham

"This course has been a game changer for me. Once you commit to daily meditation to stop drinking alcohol, so many other doors become unlocked. I can see so many things I need to work on internally which I couldn’t while I was drinking. Rory explains things clearly and at a good pace so you really learn how to meditate properly. I have tried different techniques in the past but this has really worked and is so easy.

I have tried and failed on many occasions to stop drinking. I finally feel I have cracked it by taking this course, and I have also learnt so many things about myself which has all come from meditation.

The course is very good value for money."

Tom, Carpenter, Bristol

“Twenty-four days alcohol free now and I am really starting to noticeably feel the benefits both mentally and physically. The meditations are a great way to start each day on a really positive note and have really helped me maintain my resolve in some particularly trying circumstances.

Fiona, Senior Educator, Victoria

"I found the course very beneficial. I used to meditate many years ago and have found the mantra method an effective and less time-consuming approach.

I have cut down alcohol significantly and feel much better for it. When I have lapsed, I've learned not to get angry with myself but rather stay calm and renew my commitment."

The meditation has helped me overcome cravings and react differently to stress. My family have noticed I'm more relaxed and my sons are proud and relieved that I am more present and emotionally available. I look forward to continuing to meditate my way to a happier life!"

Tess, PA and mum of three, London

“I loved the course. I don’t know why I haven't been meditating since I was a teenager. It feels like it was made for me but I expect lots of people think that! I have a constant stream of worries and thoughts and just giving myself the chance to let those thoughts ramble without worrying about them and then refocusing on the mantra has been revolutionary. I've been sleeping so much better and when I wake up I’m not in a horrible cycle of negative worries and thoughts.

I have stopped drinking when I go out in the week. Like last night with my oldest friends – I just felt confident not ordering alcohol. The others all got hammered. I felt so smug the next day because it didn't dampen my fun at all.

The course is brilliant – it's really easy to follow.”

Hear Rory's story

You need no prior knowledge or experience with meditation and will only need to set aside 15 minutes a day, where you can sit somewhere, close your eyes and listen to a recording.

The technique uses a mantra which is a meditation word you say silently in your head. The mantra gives you something to occupy your awareness instead of thoughts and leads you to a place of stillness within.

By accessing this place of stillness, you will allow your body to release stress and create new circuitry in your brain which will help you change your habits, including drinking.

This course is designed for moderate to heavy drinkers who want help quitting or cutting down. If you have serious issues with alcohol or a history of mental illness, you should contact your doctor before starting this program.
