How Does Our Subconscious Programming Impact Our Ability to Quit?

As we learn more about the different reasons why it’s so hard to quit our addictions, namely the physical, mental and emotional dependences we have formed on our drugs of choice, there is another equally important factor we want to be sure to look at. The subconscious programming we’ve been practicing, believing and perpetuating for much of our lives has everything to do with our addictive patterns and whether or not we’re able to extricate ourselves from them. Our subconscious mind governs the majority of our daily lives, including our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and choices, and for many of us struggling to quit our addictions, our problematic subconscious programming is partly to blame.

Limiting Beliefs About Ourselves and Our Addictions

While we’ve been growing more and more dependent on our drugs of choice, we’ve also been fueling subconscious beliefs about ourselves and our addictions. We’ve been telling ourselves that we need our drugs of choice in order to survive and that we can’t function without them. We’ve been developing the incorrect limiting belief that addicts can never recover. We’ve been conditioning ourselves to believe that quitting is impossible, that we’re not strong enough to quit, and that we’ll always be dependent no matter what we do. We close our minds to thinking about solutions, and we stay mired in the problem, our apparent inability to quit and our belief that recovery is impossible. We’ve conditioned ourselves to believe that we’ll never be able to quit, and as a result, we keep manifesting that reality for ourselves.

Identifying With Our Relapses

Every time we relapse we tell ourselves that we’re worthless, that we’re incapable of succeeding, and that our past failures are predictions of any future attempts. We believe that if we’ve tried and failed, we will inevitably continue to fail and that there is no room for any other possibility for us. We allow the shame and disappointment of our relapses to permeate our identities and our feelings of self-worth. We allow our feelings of defeat to make us give up on ourselves. We feel so low, so insecure and self-hating, so down ourselves that we give up on our sobriety altogether.

Our recovery is contingent upon our ability to reprogram our subconscious minds, through the use of positive affirmations, through meditation, through energy healing and self-exploration, in order to believe that recovery is possible for us and that we are worthy of recovering.

At The Guest House Ocala, our recovery programs include many experiential modalities including traditional therapy, conscious connected breathwork, equine therapy, somatic experiencing, art in healing, grief therapy, mindfulness and other forms of therapy.
