• Heroin, Crack Cocaine And Alcohol

    Alcohol, Heroin & Crack Cocaine

    It’s been about two years since I came to see you. I was addicted to heroin, crack cocaine and alcohol. My life was in turmoil. I was neglecting my business, my family and my own health. Since I came to see you my life has changed beyond measure. I have expanded my business and reaped enormous rewards. I regularly go to the gym and work out. I look after my body and my family life. My wife thinks it’s the nearest thing to a miracle and we tell all our friends about you.

    Alcohol & Heroin

    I quit using heroin with Shokat's help in May 2013. With the NHS, after a few days I was curled up ready to die and I could just not sleep for two weeks. With shokat, I was happy and smiling throughout the process and I slept like a baby. My mum and dad are amazed at the results.

  • Gambling & Alcohol

    Alcohol & Gambling

    Being a sceptical person I didn’t think that Hypnosis and a Bioresonance machine would ever stop me drinking. How wrong was I! I haven’t even had the urge to sit down and mellow with a pint or two. As to the thought of gambling and going to a Casino the thought is just not there, I feel it would be just a waste of time, previously I would be checking matches on line, reading the racing form and having a flutter, but now I am just not interested. You just wiped the hunger for Alcohol and Gambling away. I am very pleased – thank you

  • Cocaine, Crack Cocaine & Alcohol

    Alcohol, Cocaine & Crack Cocaine

    I stopped drinking alcohol, quit smoking crack cocaine and cannabis with LifePrinciples. Six months later I started using cocaine but you soon helped me put a stop to that. My mum Caroll and my dad Brian also quit smoking with your help. My sister Gemma stopped smoking with the NHS but started over-eating which you also turned around in one session. We are so glad we found you and we tell everyone about your treatment.

    I just wanted to say Thank you. I have just had the best nights sleep in years, without any anti depressant, or alcohol the first since 1993. I know you asked me to contact you in a couple of weeks but I NEEDED to say Thank you now. I feel great.

    Alcohol, Insomnia & Manic Depression

    What you have managed to do (with our daughter) in a very remarkable space of time – three short weeks – is to take her back some twenty years to to the sharp, lively, effervescent musician, performer, conductor, teacher she used to be. I am still trying to take in the fantastic change in her, and to stop asking myself if I am dreaming all this. I know you have not yet finished your work with her, but I felt that you are overdue, from all the family, our heartfelt gratitude and thanks for your work with Pam. Our sincere thanks.

    Alcohol, IBS & Severe Depression

    I just wanted to let you know how good I am feeling, I went to for one week to Turkey after seeing you and have not touched any alcohol or anti-depressants, no cravings at all; in fact I feel great, I feel like at last I have a life worth living, People are beginning to comment on how healthy I am looking, I have been in pubs; restaurants with people drinking around me; it does not bother me in any way at all. My skin has improved, my IBS has improved; my outlook on life is now full of hope for the future. Thank you so much.

    Alcohol & Chronic Depression

    Well, I can only go on my own experience and that is that your treatment saved me, and I will always be grateful. Of course, as you have stated Shokat, the desire to change has to be present. 1 year 4 months for me :). Try not to be defensive, and focus on the wonderful tributes. As you say, if it worked 100% of the time you really WOULD be referred to as God, ha ha. I refer to your treatment in a video I made at New Year. I didn't go into full details as it's the story of my childhood till now, but you can have a look if you like.

    Alcohol & Bereavement

    I lost my mother in a tragic accident, and I am ashamed to say I drowned my sorrows with alcohol, I soon realised it was not going to change anything, in fact, if truth be told it made me feel more depressed. I rang Shokat and he put me back on the right track again. I felt like a different person when I left after the treatment and much more able to cope.

  • Quit Drinking - The Truth Behind Alcohol Addiction


    First the man takes a drink,
    Then the drink takes a drink,
    Then the drink takes the man.[proverb]

    Let’s start with the bad news…

    If drugs were re-classified today, alcohol is one that would not be approved! Apart from the social problems it causes, it is actually a poison that has to be processed by bodily organs, especially the liver. There is no cure for liver failure besides a transplant and we have all read the high profile cases of those who have benefited from this rare gift and then gone on to destroy the new liver in exactly the same way.

    A recently televised documentary about St George's Hospital showed that one young alcoholic had needed two liver transplants by the age of 31 at a cost to the NHS is £90,000  each.

    As well as being a killer illness in its own right, alcoholism creates broken and damaged families. One client whose drunken father used to come into her room and urinate on her head, thinking it was the toilet, still ended up a full blown alcoholic herself. We all have a tendency either to repeat what we saw as children go in the exact opposite direction. Sadly, this woman was a repeater of the behaviour she had seen modelled from infancy.

    Some religions, such as Islam, forbid alcohol because of the danger of the altered mental and emotional state, including making some people violent, aggressive, unruly – or very emotional. Face it: being drunk is hardly a pretty sight.

    Some people use alcohol to self-medicate to take away emotional pain of some sort, seeing alcohol not as a problem but a solution to a problem. The trouble with this is that you still have to come down to earth, when sober, and face the reality of life – with the addition now that you have the consequences of drinking to add to the mix. This cycle causes people such despair they have nowhere to turn to but to repeat the escapist behaviour, until they become full-blown alcoholics – and now have two problems to wrestle with: being both emotionally bankrupt and an alcoholic.

    Some people argue alcohol gives them confidence but, very soon, it ends up controlling them (or you could say the drink really does ‘take the man’ or woman (or child in some horrifying recent cases). However you look at it, alcohol is not good for society in any way, but the fact we are stuck with this ‘rotten’ culture for the foreseeable future does not mean any one of us has to be stuck with it.

    To put an end to this toxic cycle, we really must deal with both the emotional as well as the addiction part.

    When drunk, people’s behaviour changes completely. They often become utterly unruly. Here is a drunk woman who steals 45ft ferry while shouting 'I'm Jack Sparrow'. Some people drive while drunk and end up ruining their own lives and the lives of others. Many, many people have killed and been killed through drunk driving. Yet, every year, the alcohol lobby comes up with more statistics demonstrating that drinking a small quantity of alcohol on a regular basis is good for you.
    Do you really believe drinking any amount of poison on a regular basis is good for you?
    It might not actively (or at least visibly) harm those indifferent to it (so why bother anyway?) but a small amount generally leads to a large amount where there is any tendency or temptation to any form of escapism or use of substances to feel ‘better’. Besides, some cancer researchers assert that even one unit per day adds to the risk of developing cancer.

    … and then the good news

    Our unique therapy can deal with alcohol addiction in as little as 30 minutes (we will explain this to you). However, dealing with the emotional part of the condition can take up to a year (during which you will come for treatment every three months). The most extensive (and therefore expensive) programme we run is for emotional problems. If you enrol on this, we include getting you off alcohol free of any extra charge.

    So what stops drinkers seeking help?

    “FEAR Stops People Seeking Help – fear that it’s going to be too painful or too difficult to give up drinking”

    Most people who want to quit don’t do so because of FEAR, fear that it’s going to be too painful or too difficult. No, it’s not painful or difficult emotionally or physically – this is the impression people get from the ‘daft’ methods used by the NHS, pharmaceutical intervention, useless charities such as the AA (who have their own agenda only they can understand). Anything that does not also deal with the mind is a futile exercise, and that’s why most NHS methods are a complete waste of time. 

    "Everything is going well, am sleeping really well, and have lost the compulsion to think of alcohol. I used to think about it late afternoon every day, and have not done that once. I have just had a bit of a crisis through the post, and for once did not even think about alcohol either, will just sort it in a calm way. Zoe, Manchester"

    "FEAR – I am going to miss my emotional crutch"

    This is again an irrational fear. If you think about it, why would you miss anything if your unconscious mind does not want you to have it? Did you miss drinking alcohol before you got addicted to it?  So after successful therapy, your mind will return to the same state it was before you got addicted to alcohol, you will not miss anything, not a sausage! Your willpower will be boosted so you can turn your back on this nasty habit and be able to sleep without drinking yourself to sleep. 

    However, if you fall off the wagon at any time within 12-months, we will put you back on track without further charge, to make sure that not only that you quit, but stay quit. After 12-months, if you ever relapse you don't have to re-enter the full programme like a rehab or have to wait for six months like the NHS, but pay us for one session and quit drinking alcohol again. The programme is designed to keep you to alcohol free for life. 

    "I had a really stressful day yesterday. And its continuing today...surprisingly did not want a drink! Who would have thought this would be possible? Suzi, London"

    Can we get people to quit drinking in a day?


    Yes we can! We follow ours clients progress and rather than taking their word for it, carry out face-to-face interviews and breathalyser test. We found that in the past year alone we had almost *100% success rate charted over 12 months. In the vast majority of cases people quit in just one two-hour session. Compare this to the NHS who have no answers for alcohol addiction or statistics. 

    * People who do not abort the programme prematurely. 

    Here is a full playlist of our clients taking about their experiences of trying to quit drinking with the help of the NHS, the rehabs and then with us (the difference is like night and day):

      Darren Testimonial

      “Shokat. Its a year since I came to see you for Alcohol hypnotherapy and Bioresinence. I was drinking 4-5 pints at least 6 nights a week and felt deprived without it. 

      My life is now completely different. I don’t even think about alcohol and my business is booming and my everyday life is far more enjoyable. I did have some old cravings pop into my head when spring came and I could smell all the barbecues lighting up but you were there for me and booked me back in for a booster. 

      I would also like to let everyone know that I had previously been on the Alan Carr EasyWay to Stop Drinking course and have bought countless “off the shelf” hypnotherapy CD’s to try and quit drinking but non worked. 

      You saved my life, thanks a million.”

      “Hi Shokat Conor here from Ireland.

      You saw me on 28th and 29th June 2010. Just to let you know I haven’t had a drink since I left you 4 weeks ago which is brilliant for me.

      I am feeling so happy in myself and my family are really proud of me and supportive. They cannot actually get over how well I am doing. I can now sleep all night without waking up and haven’t had any problems going to my local pub without having alcohol. My vertigo has also gone now. Thank you so much for your help. Hopefully I can stay on the right track for the future.

      I will keep in touch and let you know how I am getting on.

      You have put me and my life back on track.

      I saw you on 28th of June. Just to let you know I am going into my 13th week without touching a drop of alcohol and am feeling great. I still have not had a desire to touch it. My family and friends are really behind me too and are telling me I look much better.

      Thank you, you have put me and my life back on track hopefully I can keep it up. Maybe you could help me with the smoking habit as well but maybe I should just keep going the way I am for now.

      Its now been 12 months this weekend since I had any alcohol and I feel much happier and confident in myself.

      Just to let you know everything is going great here for me. Its now been 12 months this weekend since I had any alcohol and I feel much happier and confident in myself. I just want to thank you for changing my life around. My family and I are a completely happier bunch of people and are amazed at what happened with just one visit of 2 sessions with you.

      Thanks again and when I get a chance (as the days are not long enough for of now) I must come and see you again about my smoking and see how that goes.

      Thanks again"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Connor from the Republic of Ireland came to see us during 28 Jan 2010 to quit drinking. Alcohol had consumed his life for many years. He spent most of his time in the pub and as he says, ‘he had no family life’. He provided feedback throughout the year.

      After the two session programme he stayed quit for a year and a week. Then he thought he could get away with just one drink (big mistake) and reverted back to drinking.

      We got him back-in for another two sessions and again he quit drinking as easy as pie.

    • "You helped me stop drinking after a long-term, serious alcohol problem in November, that lasted over 10 years and I am very very grateful"

      Jacqueline (from Aberdeen) Testimonial

      “Dear Shokat,

      You helped me stop drinking after a long-term, serious alcohol problem in November, that lasted over 10 years and I am very very grateful. This issue had overwhelmed my life, and you gave me it back, which I didn’t think could happen at one point. We have worked together alone more than once, and I am convinced of your integrity, ethical and moral code. You never touched me and I have complete faith in you. You work to save people, to enhance their lives, to free them from nightmarish scenarios, and are helping humanity. One of the good guys….I wish there were more people like you in this world.

      I phoned you yesterday as my lifeline. I am severely traumatised due to being subject to covert hypnosis/embedded words over a four week period, and have been ‘taken over’ by a master who wants to control me as his ‘slave’ I cannot get out of my head. Suicide thoughts have entered my mind, and I am terrified. I know you can understand and treat this, as you also have the ability to do this technique but don’t, due to ethical reasons.

      This person brainwashed me and used me and my computer for his own evil ends, and it was you who I knew could save me, offering lengthy support at awkward times even though it wasn’t in our initial contract, and I called at inconvenient hours. You have given me hope for my future for the second time, as I know and I can’t express my gratitude enough, you are a rock and please keep up the good work. I know your hypnosis will clear this influence and once again free me"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Jacqueline shares her story of how easily she overcame her alcohol addiction after the very first hypnosis session. Then about three months later she during Christmas of 2009 she had a pudding with a alcoholic liquor and that made her feel almost sick. A few days later a friend offered her a glass of wine and she thought she could get away with it which you cant and reverted back to drinking again. She came back for a free backup session and quit as easy as pie with our help. This time she has learnt her lesson and will never make the same mistake again.

Have been in social company in pups/restaurants etc and have no problem in quietly stating that I do not drink alcohol. Only challenge is to find a decent range of soft drinks that are not ‘sugary sweet!’. All best and many thanks.”

      Hi. All going very well and no alcohol. Due to the ‘off the booze status’ kayaking work and life in general very good and busy in the best sense of the word. Am away kayak guiding in North of Scotland as of this Friday for till end of August then on holiday to States till mid September. It would be much appreciated if you could let me have a date for my final appointment – Wed 6th October? That would be a year as I recall. If that date is ok Ill put it in the diary now and organise a flight down and back on the same day like I did for the last appointment. I think we met at 12 o’clock on that occasion"

      Mark (from Birmingham) Testimonial

      "Hi my name is Mark. I am 39 years old. I recently (have) been to see Shokat in January, 7-months ago. Before that I suffered, about 25 years of pretty chronic alcohol abuse since I was 13. I went through all the therapies you can think of – couple of months rehabilitation in institutions various drugs various clinics to no avail.

      My life came to a point seven months ago at Christmas where it was a make or break time for me mentally, physicallypersonally. As I say, I came to see Shokat and after the first session I have been a non-drinker since which I am completely amazed with. 

      There is no battle at the moment, there is no urge, there is no craving I am totally amazed. 

      This is me after 25 years of constant alcohol abuse which turned my life upside-down basically. I have since started my own businessI have a new life. 

      I highly recommend this form of treatment"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

    • "Free from Alcohol and Anti-Depressants after 10 years"

      Philippa (from Newcastle Staffs) Testimonial

      "In September 2009 I made an appointment to see Shokat after trawling the web site for help. You see, even though doctors will tell you that the ‘New’ anti-depressants are not addictive I found it very difficult to stop taking them and I mixed them with large glasses’ of red wine just for good measure.

      Shokat has helped me to turn my life round. I had been dependant on ant-depressants and alcohol since my husband died in an accident nearly 10 years earlier. I had tried on numerous occasions to wean myself off anti-depressants, by taking one every other day or every three days, but if I had a bad day or week I would be back to taking them daily. The same with alcohol I would have the most terrible craving if I tried to go a few days without it.

      The treatment was the closest I have come to a miracle. To say I don’t have my bad days would be very foolish, I have had a few since my first treatment, but Shokat has always been at the end of the phone, or rang me back if I left a message and made an appointment within days for me to see him if need be.

      In June of this year I lost my mother in a tragic accident, and I am ashamed to say I drowned my sorrows with alcohol, I soon realised it was not going to change anything, in fact, if truth be told it made me feel more depressed. I rang Shokat and asked for help, an appointment was made for me within days(where else would that happen) he wasn’t judgmental or made me feel weak (which in fact is how I did feel,) but very understanding and put back on the right track again. I felt like a different person again when I left after the treatment and much more able to cope.

      I have visited Shokat’s clinic on four occasions. On my first visit his wife was present. Shokat has helped me to turn my life around, so much so I agreed to share my story, which can be viewed on YouTube.

      At all times I have always felt safe and have been treated with the utmost respect, and have always found Shokat to be very professional in his manner.

      Shokat is one of the kindest, honest, caring, most genuine people I have ever met, and one of the few gentlemen left on this planet.

      I would not hesitate in recommending him to my friends and family"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Darrell a Joiner from Manchester came to overcome his alcohol and cocaine addiction with Life Principles. He quit over a two day period spending 2h per day with us. As he says in his interview, he had no desire what-so-ever for alcohol and cocaine during that time – he did not even thing about it.

      Three months later he went on an all inclusive holiday and thought he could get away with just a few drinks but found he couldn’t and after getting drunk he was offered a line of coke and he took it. Very soon he was back where he was before he came to see us.

      In one further 2 hour session we put him back on track free of charge because – we look after all our clients for a year on our fixed price programmes. Darrell could have been duped by some very prominent Bioresonance clinics close to his home but he is glad he didn’t. Not only had he quit drinking alcohol and snorting cocaine but in the last session we give him another free bonus, we got him to stop smoking cigarettes as well.

    • "I had a bad alcohol problem but not any more"

      Joyce (from Birmingham) Testimonial

      ‘Hello, I’m Joyce.

      I am 71 next week. I had a very bad alcohol problem. I was drinking two or three bottles of whiskey a week. I was tired all the time. I nearly lost my family. My daughter said she was not going to come and see me if I did not pack-up. My husband has been wonderful. He has tried to be fair with me, he has tried to be firm with me, he has tried to be loving. He has tired everything he could to help me but I just could not help myself. Anyway, I saw this advert in the Journal and I came last week for the first time and oh, what a difference it’s made. I am sleeping better, eating better, I haven’t touched a drink. 

      Yesterday I went down to the shops and there was a bottle of whiskey and I thought I love a drink but then I thought, ‘No, I am not going to let people down.’ And as Shokat says, I would be letting myself down. We don’t argue my husband and I, but he has been cross with me and we have not had one cross word this week and he said, ‘It’s been one of the best weeks for years that we had together.’ I used to pass out – I think that was because of the drink. I was sick a lot of the times because of what I was doing to my body. 

      I have only been once and I feel wonderful"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Shokat: ‘Will you ever drink again?”

      Joyce: ‘No, I am not an alcoholic, I am a tee-totaller. Yes, it’s most definitely worth it. If anyone who is in the same problem as me – if they can afford to come – then they should come.

    • "Pauline shares her struggle to quit drinking alcohol"

      Pauline Testimonial

      "I am Pauline. I come from Staffordshire. I am 70 years old. I was an alcoholic. Going through the divorce, I started to drink and drink, until I got through one-and-half-bottles of spirits a day and I was out of my mind. So, I tried to get help; I had acupuncture – it worked for six weeks. Then, I tried to stop drinking by making myself busy, doing something, but as soon as I stopped that, I had to have a bottle; once I had my bottle, that’s it, I would drink the lot; then I would just pass out and just go to bed and stay there ‘til the morning – my life had gone. I can’t understand why I was so bad an alcoholic. My eyes went yellow, my liver had a pain, my liver count was way over the limit and I (knew) then that I got to do something about it. So I came here, and it’s the best thing that has ever happened to me in my life.

      The first time I came here, following the session that day, I did not want to drink – I never thought about the drink since and it’s been absolutely lovely. I am starting to smell the flowers, go for a walk, which I haven’t done for years. I am a new woman and I feel younger. The whites of my eyes are coming back and my skin is getting better, even my hair. I feel absolutely great. I can’t understand why people don’t know about this hypnotherapy/hypnosis like ‘Gazza’ and ‘Georgie Best’. I think this would have done them a power of good; believe me, because I am 70 and they are a lot younger. It could have helped.

      (While stroking her legs) “This is about my skin. This was all ‘scurvy’ flaking old skin, very dry and on my arms, and now, since I had this treatment, my skin is absolutely beautiful..moist; it’s only been one week. Shokat, can you imagine what it would have been like after a year? I should feel like a queen in a year. Well, every penny I spent on drink (I’d) rather bring it here because it’s done me a power of good, it really has; and that’s only one session, wait for all the others – oh I can’t wait.”

      Allan (West Midlands) Testimonial

      ‘Hi, my name is Allan. I am 40. I have been drinking heavily for about 20 years. I have come here to get help because the AA did not help me, group sessions didn’t help me, and hopefully the sessions I had (with ‘Life Principles’) will. I came last week because I was a heavy smoker as well and, since then, in the last seven days, I have only had just one cigarette rather than 20-a-day. And all I can do is to recommend this kind of therapy because the AA (wouldn’t) have helped you, doctors wouldn’t have helped you and the NHS will always forget you.

      Aquarius, I went there. It made me worse. The group sessions were terrible. All you do is sit down and listen to everybody else’s problems (then) go away, feeling more down than when you come in. There is no after-care; there is no after-thought, there is nothing. And all they do is to take the money they take from the donations and the money they receive and use it for themselves. There is no help whatsoever. This is why I came here and this is why you should come here (too).

      I used to smoke up to 60-a-day. The things I have noticed since I cut down on the smoking and since I cut down on the alcohol intake, how much it didn’t just affect me and my health but how it affected other people. I was not just hurting myself, I was hurting a lot of people, and that is one thing that has to stop. My actions should not have a reaction on somebody else, when they have no control over the situation I’m causing. It’s my problem and I got to deal with it and – if I get better – then everyone else will get better, and everybody else will be nicer towards me.

      The reason for drinking is because I have had a bad life. It’s no excuse for drinking. It’s just that when you are drinking that heavily, you forget everything. The only thing is (that) the problem doesn’t go away, you wake up the next day, the problem is still there and you start dinking again. So it’s an ongoing thing. So, rather than drinking Monday, Wednesday, Friday you are drinking Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sundays – just to try and forget. The only thing is the problem has not gone away. Shokat, the problem doesn’t go away until you deal with it at the unconscious level first, which we will deal with in the next session.

      I have been to no-smoking-groups. I have had the patches, I have had the tablets (champix), I have had the gum and nothing works until I came here. Now, one fag to me in a week, that for me is unheard off.

      I am now looking forward to the next session"

      Mathew (from Birmingham) Testimonial

      "Dear Mr Ali, 

      After receiving treatment from yourself for my drink addiction I have been Sober for 12 days and the desire to drink has left. I am also sleeping well with out any sleeping aids. 

      I have had family problems during these 12 days which in the past would have returned me to drink but since my session I have not felt the urge to drink and been able to face my problems head on. 

      I have been more relaxed, am feeling good in myself and I am also stopping at my parents as recommended. I thank you deeply for all your help.

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Here is Mathew sharing his story of how he would bring on a fit through drinking and end up hurting himself. Panic attacks and insomnia did not help. Knowing that one day he may kill himself was still not sufficient enough reason to quit drinking.

      Mathew had tried the usual route to quit such as NHS funded rehab and the AA but nothing worked that it until he came to see us.

    • "My family is so impressed with what I have managed to achieve with your help"

      Dennis (from Essex) Testimonial

      “My name is Dennis. I come from Essex. I have been drinking alcohol for many, many years with no success to cure myself. I have been to the AA – that was no good to me. I have been to the ‘Alcohol Advisory Service’. They were just talk. And what I used to do is drink too much, and call myself an alcoholic. I used to lie to them (about) how much I was drinking and giving them the impression that I was overcoming it when I wasn’t. And my wife made the decision to come and see Shokat. We took a train from Essex to Birmingham, and booked into a hotel. I came to see Shokat. 

      I had three hours of hypnosis. I left here to go back to our hotel and Shokat said to me you can mix with people who drink alcohol, because they are drinking alcohol, that’s their problem, it’s not yours because you are not dying from it anymore. You can cure yourself, and you will be (a) tee-total for the rest of your life. 

      And after I left Shokat yesterday, we went to a local hotel where we bought a meal and there were people walking around me with pints of Guinness and pints of lager and spirits and I bought my wife a spirit and I had two glasses of lemonade-and-lime and it did not bother me at all.”

      “It is now Saturday morning and I am back with Shokat for another session, and I can honestly say to Shokat that, by this time, at home, I would have had a can of lager. Now I don’t even want to. I think it’s been worth it and I would recommend it to anyone because the people I have met have been all talk and no action. Now, I finally got action. Because I feel so good, I feel so good this morning. 

      My wife says I look better. I used to wake up in the morning and I used have to prise my eyes open with my fingers because they were stuck together. And I was in the hotel room this morning, standing by the radiator and I said to my wife, “It did not dawn on me initially, it’s the first time in months and I have woken up and my eyes are open – fantastic feeling”

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Shokat; today you are here for the second session, and because we dealt with the alcohol so well yesterday, today we are going to concentrate wholly on the ‘Luggage of Life. So what we are going to do today is to take away all the pain that you are carrying from your past and thereby we will get rid of the reasons why you may have started drinking in the first place.

      Okay. Are you ready for that?”

      "Dennis: “I am ready for it, Shokat: Okay, lets go.”

      On Sunday – two days after his first session – Dennis called me and said: “My family is so impressed with what I have managed to achieve with your help. The best present I got was when my grandaughter told me that her mum had told her that she now had a new grandad. I will always remember those words for the rest of my life.”

      He also went to pick the Sunday groceries and paper and when he was leaving the shop the shopkeeper reminded him that he had forgotten his booze. He said, “No, I haven’t forgotten it. I just don’t need it any more.”

    • "Quit drinking, smoking and gambling"

      Raj Testimonial

      “I came to see you on the 21/08/2009 to quit drinking, smoking and gambling. That night I went to a wedding and even though there was a lot of alcohol being served, I had no inclination to drink. Later on, I was around the roulette table and I did not feel like placing a bet. I still had a slight craving for a cigarette and smoked about three cigarettes later on that day. However, by the next morning (after a sleep cycle) my desire for the cigarettes had evaporated into thin air.

      By the time I came back for my third session I had decided that smoking was not a problem and I wanted to continue with this but Gambling was history. Also, as my gambling was driving me to the alcohol I had become a very responsible drinker after quitting gambling. I am very happy with the way things have gone”

    • "A ten year binge drinking habit gone in a day"

      Mandy (from Birmingham) Testimonial

      ‘I would say that from about ten years ago, I went from having a social drink to binge-drinking where I would regularly binge drink three-to-four-times-a-week, where I would ‘pass out’, ‘black out’, every single time. I would be absolutely devastated the next morning because I couldn’t remember what I had done. I had shown myself up, I lost my dignity, and I would be absolutely dying inside and would never want to drink again. But then, like I said, three-to-four-times-a-week became my habit – the cycle was just set – a spiral downhill, because the more I did it, the less control I had of it. There were some really worse circumstances where I found I nearly got attacked – I would not even know that I got attacked because there were moments when I would wake up and think how did I get here? It was absolutely devastating, because without drink I am very dignified and very in control of every other aspect of my life but the drink really did take a hold. I just put it by; that was society because everybody goes out and everybody gets wasted and I was in good company.’

      Shokat: ‘Tell me what happened, how did you overcome your problem?’

      Mandy: ‘Well, I just came to the point were I knew that this was life-threatening. I knew that one particular time I would either vomit in my sleep and that would be it, or I would be attacked because I left myself open, completely open within that state. So, you know, it’s started to affect my life as I would not want to go out because I knew that if I (got) drunk, I would be just a loose cannon, I would be susceptible to anything. So you know, I tried to just stop drinking and I found it extremely difficult. If I went to a social occasion, I really didn’t want to be there because I didn’t feel part of it because I wouldn’t be drinking. It didn’t work it just never worked, with all the willpower in the world it never happened – I would still drink. A few days would go by and some scenario would come up and I would excuse myself, pretending I could control it this time, or that I needed it because I had some stressful occasion, or I needed it because of a celebration – I would find some sort of an excuse. (I) just did not have the willpower and it just continued and continued until I just happened to be looking on the internet and just trying to find something that would help me. And that’s when I come across Shokat Ali’s website and I saw Liz and how it had affected Liz. I could relate to Liz in that she drunk a couple of bottles of wine and didn’t think much of it but she knew it was taking a toll on her health and on her life. So I phoned up.’

      Shokat: ‘So what happened?’

      Mandy continues: ‘I had an appointment very quick, so once I set the decision; it was not long before I came up and then we had a two-hour session where I had the hypnotherapy and the bioresonance treatment. And I went away, and, I just can’t believe it – this is my second session and I have not touched a drop and it’s just not like me.’

      Shokat: ‘How many weeks (since you last had a drink)?’

      Mandy continues: ‘It’s been two weeks, and I have had the most stressful two weeks, I have actually moved house, it’s been really stressful but not once have I even felt like having a drink. I can’t believe it really. I feel a lot more optimistic now, I feel very optimistic for my future because I feel that I can now make plans. I don’t feel that that’s now controlling me.’

      Shokat: ‘Until you ended up looking at my website by chance, did you think there was help out there, did you consider something else?’

      Mandy: ‘I’ve seen people do the conventional way and go via the hospital; the doctor’s and I’d seen it fail, so no. I had gone previously a few years back when I realised that this was becoming a problem and I went to a counsellor to talk but it didn’t have any effect on me and I would still go back and drink. You know, it just didn’t seem to have that effect so with all the passion and the willpower it just didn’t work for me – until here, yes.’

    • "I Drink To Wipe Out Images and to Cope with Stress"

      Pam (from Derby) Testimonial

      "Something happened to me at the age of 11 which totally destroyed my life. I started drinking as a form of self-medication in order to cope with my past memories. I could not cope with stress and I could not sleep. I suffered the most awful nightmares for the last 35 years.

      After just two visits, Shokat has totally changed my life. I no longer need to drink. I sleep like a lamb. I no longer get those terrible nightmares that have blighted my life for so long. I can cope with stress much better then before. Both my parents see a remarkable improvement in me. I take my supplements that you recommended and I listen to your self-hypnosis CD. I have full confidence that with your help I will get my life back.”

      This is the letter we received from Pam’s father three weeks later.

      “Dear Shokat,
      I am Pamela’s father. Six weeks ago I was in despair over my daughter’s health. Despite seeking NHS help over the past ten or more years she had just six weeks ago been diagnosed with OCD, with her behaviour complicated because of intense dependence on alcohol – to block out her nightmare thoughts.

      Her physical health was at a critical stage – she could not eat, had stomach pains constantly and bouts of extreme anxiety and trembling.

      What you have managed to do in a very remarkable space of time – three short weeks – is to take her back some twenty years to to the sharp, lively, effervescent musician, performer, conductor, teacher she used to be.

      I am still trying to take in the fantastic change in her, and to stop asking myself if I am dreaming all this.

      I know you have not yet finished your work with her, but I felt that you are overdue, from all the family, our heartfelt gratitude and thanks for your work with Pam.

      Our sincere thanks.

      Jim

      As a postscript, and from my personal point of view:

      I also feel my political hackles rise when I consider the NHS inability/unwillingness to provide support when expertise such as yours is available. I would like to provide you with a considered statement on this when I have had time to reflect fully on it.

      Regards

    • "In control of my drinking after the very first session"

      HS Testimonial

      "Before hypnosis

      Once I have one drink I find it impossible to stop. I’ve tried to narrow it down to when I need to drink but it is really any reason.

      Methods I have tried before:

      * Abstinence

      * Doing extra things like evening classes

      Why I want to quit drinking:

      1. To regain control of my life.
      2. To live longer.

      Video Transcript:

      Basically the problem was alcohol. I got to the point that the only way after I finished work was to go home and I’d be drinking all night. As soon as I started drinking I wouldn’t stop until I fell asleep and then I would wake up and then go to bed. It was every excuse I could find to have a drink whether I had a stressful day, whether I’d done something good, whether it was the end of the week, a family celebration, anything. I was really really concerned about the extent of it.

      Also, as well I did not like the person I had become when I did start drinking. I hated the person. I also hated myself because I couldn’t stop drinking. And I knew it was affecting myself and my family. Also my health as well because the next day I just get up with a terrible hangover be really really bad then I would start eating lots of carbohydrates to try and settle myself down. The weight piled on so obviously I got a lot fatter.

      I have tried abstaining. I tried doing extra things like going out, doing different evening classes and absolutely nothing has worked. To be quite truthful I was very sceptical when I first came here but I was absolutely desperate to do something about my drinking, really desperate. I came here, had the session and I haven’t had a drink since.

      I actually identified two time periods; Friday evening when that was it, like the end of the week, that was it. I would go out for an Indian meal and have a bottle of wine with a meal and then come back and drink some more. And then on Sunday when I would have all of my family around or relatives for dinner where I would cook for everyone and we would drink lots and lots of wine. Then I would carry on drinking and the next day I would feel awful. I just could not stop this process at all.

      So when I came here, as I said, I was very sceptical but I am absolutely amazed. I have not had a drink and this Friday and Sunday it did cross my mind and I just said ‘no’ to the thought and it just went. I just cannot believe I have not had a drink. I had not wanted a drink. I mean yesterday I had one of the most stressful days of my life at work, really stressful. When I got home which was a lot later than normal because of the circumstances I didn’t even think about having a drink and that to me is a miracle. So I am just over the moon and it really has changed my life and I hope it continues to change my life as well. It’s absolutely brilliant and I will tell everybody.

      If I look back it all started when my first marriage was on the rocks 27 years ago. For all of those years I was out of control until now thanks to your help"

      “I have had one session so far and in that time I haven’t wanted any alcohol at all, I haven’t even thought about it, I haven’t even craved it. It’s fantastic.

      I am a nurse. I come from the West Midlands. I have a history of alcohol abuse that started from my teenage years. Through the years I have tried various means to stop. My own self-determination which failed miserably. I tried Aquarius. Although they did help I was still not in control of my drinking, not at all and it was getting worse and worse. There came a point where I thought I was going to die because of drinking so much alcohol so I came here and I must say the results have been fantastic. I have had one treatment so far (90 minutes) and its been absolutely wonderful. I haven’t even thought about alcohol, I haven’t wanted to drink. I felt so much better about myself. I felt so much confident about myself that I won’t want another drink as long as I live.

      I went to my GP and I didn’t get any direct help from there. He said I could refer myself to other agencies which I did. I have a close friend who is an alcoholic who has been free for 29 years and he tried to give me some support. But I am afraid even with that support and even with that counselling I wasn’t able to control my drinking.

      Tim Testimonial

      Video testimonial.

      "I first saw Shokat six months ago in June 2011.

      I’d learnt about ‘Life Principles’ whilst researching the internet in connection with my anxiety which I was sure was linked to my dependance on alcohol and long term use of an anti-depressant. I had reached a point where I was drinking every day, usually about four or more pints of beer or lager, and depending on circumstances, possibly some wine or spirits as well. I felt that I was out of control and that my craving for the drink was getting progressively stronger than I was.

      For several years I have tried to stop by willpower but with very little if any success. (For example on holiday two years ago I think I managed four days without a drink). I felt desperate and in need of help. Although I had been taking only the lowest amount of citalopram for several years, I was very scared of stopping it because when I tried reducing it before my anxiety had increased.

      I made contact with Shokat and he was able to see me within a couple of days. In my first session Shokat dealt with my reliance on the citalopram, this was so successful that on my return home to Southampton the following day I was confident to dispose of the remaining tablets and to date I have not missed the drug at all. I sufferred none of the withdrawal symptoms normally associated with stopping. Shokat followed by treating the alcohol addiction and I was amazed that any craving for alcohol had evaporated away!” 

      After travelling home I was over the moon with the apparent success of the treatment. I had none of the craving for a drink any longer. My family and friends were all so pleased and happy for me, they found it difficult to believe that I had finally stopped with Shokat’s help. After a couple of months people who I hadn’t seen for a while remarked on how well I looked. I’m sleeping far more soundly, my wife tells me I’ve even stopped snoring! There have been many times when I’ve been tempted to have a drink and its not all been plain sailing but thanks to Shokat and Life Principles, I feel that the old Tim is returning, life is a gift worth living.

       For the first time in many years I haven’t got to have ‘stop drinking’ at the top of my list of new year’s resolutions!"

      Philippa: I just wanted to say Thank you. I have just had the best nights sleep in years, without any anti depressant, or alcohol the first since 1993. I know you asked me to contact you in a couple of weeks but I NEEDED to say Thank you now. I feel great. Thanks Philippa.

      Shokat: Philippa, thanks for making my day!

      Philippa: No, Thank you for helping me to start my life again, Alcohol and prescription drug free.

      Philippa: This is truly the best thing that has happened in my life for a long time. I came to you because I knew I must change my life, and couldn’t carry on the way I was. I have prayed for help and guidance. I craved for a peaceful life and my prayers have been answered. I needed to sort my life out and move out of this very unhappy marriage I am in but in my heart I knew that I would probably end up in an apartment on my own drowning my sorrows, and feeling sorry for myself. I was having visions of losing my job, my driving licence, because I have been out in my car to fetch another bottle when one didn’t do the job. I have been so lucky not to have hurt anyone in or been involved in an accident.

      So you see you have saved my life. I could have lost my driving licence and my job which in turn would have meant losing my home and everything else – just thinking about it makes me feel cold. I will be visiting my Dr to tell him how well I feel after your amazing treatment.

      Barry Testimonial

      "Hi Shokat
      I trust this message finds you well. I saw you on the 19th July and you were helping me with some issues- snorting cocaine, alcohol issues, cigarettes and nicotine patches. 
      Since our appointments I have not taken any of the substances I was having issues with which really feels like a breath of fresh air. 
      There have been a couple of days that have been harder than others but what do you expect when you have been addicted to a class A drug. 
      I feel 100% positive, yes sometimes it takes effort, and sometimes cravings or urges do appear but I am looking to the future and not at the past. My days of being a slave to a substance are over. 
      Thank you Shokat, you have not only helped me you have also helped my family. I have no desire at all to return to the things I was doing. I can also quite happily tell people that I don't drink, have quit cocaine (for those that knew), and I don't smoke anymore. It's not a problem. 
      So I would say all in all it has been a massive success and one which without your help and involvement would not have been possible. 
      Thanks again"

      James (from Sussex) Testimonial

      "I have been snorting cocaine since the age of 16. I have been to a two week rehab (£8,000) and relapsed after a month and half. I had one session of hypnosis which lasted a day. I had six months of counselling and managed to abstain for three weeks. Then I had 5 sessions of bioresonance (cost thousands) and started taking cocaine after one week. I also admitted myself into the Priory for three weeks – they were RUBBISH! 

      I quit snorting cocaine with you in the very first session.

      When I came back two years later, you also helped me quit drinking and gambling free of charge. My wife and I are more than willing to give you a glowing video testimonial during our next check-up date"

    • "Best decision I ever made was coming in"

      Pete Testimonial

      “Hi Shokat,

      Just thought I would send you an email to let you know how I am doing. Before I came to see you, on a “good day” I was experiencing about twenty to thirty thoughts per day around taking cocaine or drinking alcohol. About two or three of these would develop into a more serious “craving”. On a “bad day” you could exchange this for almost constant cravings until I used cocaine or drank alcohol. It has been this way for the majority of my adult life, despite trying to quit for well over eight years.

      In the few days following my visit I was experiencing only two or three brief thoughts around using, but these were fleeting and had nowhere near the same power as before, nor did they develop into a serious craving. After about a week, I was experiencing approximately one thought every other day. Now after two weeks, I only tend to briefly think on using if confronted by it (i.e stood at a bar) but that passes immediately and in no way do I feel tempted to drink or shove more coke up my nose!

      Best decision I ever made was coming in, thanks and see you soon!”

This cost £16,000 but as soon as she came out she hit the bottle within weeks. They had sorted out the body detox but did nothing for years of mental conditioning. 

      We finally built up the courage to see you and all I can say is that the therapy has been nothing short of a miracle. My wife never touched alcohol again after the first session.

      Just thought I’d send you a quick update to let you know how things are going (since I saw you in Oct 2008), and I can honestly say that life without alcohol is brilliant!! – there was a time I didn’t think I’d EVER be able to say that, but thanks to you and your method I am completely transformed – there is no battle with drink any more, I never even think about it these days and for me that is true release – I can go to the pub, to dinner parties, even have alcohol in the house and pour drinks for people sometimes, only now I wonder what they see in it – there’s no “one day at a time” or “white knuckle” abstention (which is hell to live with) there’s just freedom, and that is priceless.

      Something always told me that there was an answer out there somewhere and fate pointed me in your direction and I’m so glad that it did, I just wish that everyone struggling with addiction could find this way out.

      I hope you and your family are keeping well and that business is good, and I’d just like you to know that this “t-totaller” will always be grateful for the help that you gave her – thank you Shokat.

      “Dear Ali, 

      It has now been almost a week since my visit and I haven’t had a drink or even thought about it. Also my confidence and general outlook has changed beyond recognition. Early days but will keep you informed. My husband sees a marked difference / improvement.

      Many thanks”

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Tracey travelled all the way from Devon to see us. She decided to accept our offer of staying overnight at the Great Barr Hotel so she could see us over two days. She had a lot to lose. Five years of drinking had taken its toll on her life, health and marriage.

      This is what she wrote on her questionnaire:

      “Binge drinking – once started do not stop. Adverse effects on marriage/friendships. Lack of pleasure in life. Quality of life impaired. Guilt/self pity/blame/chaos.”

      Tracy had spent £7,000 to spend two weeks in the Priory. She also spent two weeks in Spain twice at a cost of 2 x £3,500. She had also been to the AA to no avail – she did not have very kind words to say about this utterly useless charity.

      I had clients booked in back to back so I could only give her 2h of my time on day one. She was so anxious about failing yet again that she compromised the session. She just could not be hypnotised. I told her that she had not failed at all as we will turn things around for her the very next day when we would have more time. I asked her to come back the next day at 8 instead of 10.

      She cried and drank alcohol all night long and so when she came back in the morning she was worse for wear. In the four hours not only did I manage to get her to quit drinking but also managed to fit-in the ‘luggage of life programme’. She went home all smiles.

      Just like Tracey, you can also quit drinking without spending an absolute fortune and get your life back. The answer to your problems is only a free phone call away, so call me now!

      “Shokat, you’re the first person to be able to get me to change in a short space of time. I have no intention of drinking alcohol, I don’t want to which is good.

      The alcohol suggestion has definitely worked. The simple fact is that I just don’t want it! how cool is that- doesn’t seem to require any effort of will on my part!

      Tried to get stuff done today but had some sort of massive panic attack, so I just laid down and told myself everything was ok and fell asleep-just woken up-which is so cool.

      I notice that nearly all of my guilt around who I am and what I’m supposed to do has disappeared.

      I AM RESPONSIBLE!

      Finest, as ever”

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Paul started drinking when he was 13. By the time he was 50 he was a full-blown alcoholic. Later on, he became addicted to pharmaceutical drugs just to keep his anxiety at bay. When he came to see us he was addicted to booze, venlafaxine and subutek.

      Paul has been to rehabs almost every year for the last 20 years and in the process he must have spent well over a million pounds. He has tried every type of therapy you can imagine and has also enrolled on every type of self-help programme you can think off; If we were to list them all it would take up a whole page.

      Our treatment seemed just too good to be true. However, in one solid day that he spent with us, his life has turned around beyond his wildest dreams. This is his feedback:

      Helen (from Manchester) Testimonial

      "Just wanted to let you know that I’m feeling fantastic, tired but calm and relaxed and I’ve just put all the recycling out and the alcohol containers just didn’t feel part of me, no guilt as usual, just indifference. Something definitely feels different, much more apparent since I got home.

      I feel really really positive about the future. You are so caring and dedicated, I will be giving you nothing other than the glowing testimonials you deserve. I am so impressed and feel privileged to know you and blessed to have found you, totally by accident, but I’m a big believer in angels and destiny.

      I notice you recommend Anthony Robbins. I’m a big fan of his and went to a 4 day Unleash the Power Seminar with him in London a couple of years ago (even he couldn’t stop me drinking though!)” “Thank you so much, I know what the lady meant when she called you an angel.

      THREE MONTHS LATER

      I just wanted to let you know that all is going really well – no inclination to drink whatsoever, just the odd though but never any more than that – just no desire, feel very indifferent and to drink would seem mad to me – where before the common sense went out of the window – guess that’s where addiction comes in.

      I think a big part of is it is that the depression has gone completely, which is quite scary as you can only see how depressed you were once you’re out of it – not when you’re in the middle of it. I knew I was self medicating to try to feel better – or take the pain away – and I knew it wasn’t working but making things worse, but knowing didn’t stop me. I now feel ‘normal’ again, like I used to feel and it’s wonderful.

      I am still a bit anxious, I always was, but nothing like I was 12 weeks ago – I couldn’t answer the phone or the door unless I knew who it was, but I can now, and the behaviour changes will in turn build up my confidence and reduce the anxiety as time goes on.

      Leon (from Liverpool) Testimonial

      “Hi Shokat,

      How are things with your family? I hope things have not been too difficult for you and your wife. You do such a good service for people, I send you prayers and thanks for all you have done for me.

      My Progress – I have done really well so far. Totally no caffeine withdrawals which is amazing for me – when I last stopped caffeine I was in bed for two days with all-over body aches – this time nothing at all! I get an occasional slight ‘nostalgia’ for coffee and occasionally a less strong feeling about alcohol but it passes within moments and there is zero temptation.

      I was certainly suffering a lot more than I realised as a ‘dry’ alcoholic. It subtly altered all my moods. Since the treatments I have felt like I stepped back in time – to the person I was before I started my nurse training, the person who was relatively free of addictions. I hadn’t realised how unhappy I was being ‘dry’ without anything to take me out of myself or take away the anxiety. Now I am happier just as I am. My family have been amazed and it has probably rescued my marriage too. Perhaps all that struggling in my Buddhist practice to overcome my depression is what brought me to you, who knows. But whichever way you look at it your work has made a tremendous leap possible in my life.

      I am very sensitive to energy fields and could feel my whole meridian system buzzing for days after the treatments. Now whenever I want to go back into that feeling I listen to the CD you gave me. I am trying to wake my right brain up too. Please feel free to use this endorsement in any way. I am an acupuncturist (MSc) work in private clinics and addiction treatment and am also a RGN. I am happy to be contacted by email for confirmation of this.

      All Best"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Note that Leon was a ‘dry’ alcoholic. That means he had quit drinking years before he came to see me. Physically he was free, but mentally he was still being tormented.


      I remember hearing on the radio someone saying that he quit smoking 50 years ago, but even today, when he is with other smokers, he could murder a cigarette. After good solid hypnosis, you could even be with your partner who smokes, and it will not bother you at all. Now can you understand why the chemical based NHS model can never be as successful as good solid hypnotherapy?


      Anything that does not deal with the mental side of things including weeks of rehab are never going to be as good as a few hours of deep hypnosis together with our luggage of life programme! Using chemicals to deal with anxiety, depression and insomnia is nothing short of criminal – when all it takes is 2h of our luggage of life programme to put all of your troubles behind you.

      RS (from Solihull) Testimonial

      "I have tried counselling, hypnotherapy and the AA without success. Then I quit drinking with bioresonance therapy. However, I felt depressed and had to rely on anti-depressants. I started drinking after three months. I have always been a drinker but in later years I have not been able to control my drinking. Drinking wine secretly at home every day + when out, drinking too much. 

      It is a bad habit that has been exacerbated by self pity. Although most friends, family + colleagues would think of me as fun loving + caring person. It does affect my family life. Although I have always held down a good job, I haven’t given 100% to my children or husband that I could or should have done. Giving up would be a release from guilt + release me to do so much more. 

      After the first session I felt quite irritable in the afternoon. A mild argument with my husband caused me to burst into flood of tears. Listening to the self-hypnosis CD calmed me down. However, I felt in control as far as drinking was concerned. After the second session my troubles left me – this was far more valuable then quitting drinking.

      "Normally, when I quit drinking I get the shakes. After the therapy I suffered a bit of that, but your supplements helped me settle down by the morning. 

      My friends took me out to the pub last night, they had alcohol but I had a coke - I had no desire for alcohol what-so-ever. 

      Quitting with you has been a pleasant experience. I am glad I did not go to the rehab and came to see you instead - I have had more rehabs then hot dinners, I quit for a little while then start again, they just don't work for me"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      Most people who want to quit don’t do so because of FEAR, fear that it’s going to be too painful or too difficult. No, it’s not painful or difficult emotionally or physically – this is the impression people get from the ‘daft’ methods used by the NHS, the pharmaceutical intervention, useless charities and ineffective rehabs. Anything that does not also deal with the mind is a futile exercise, and that’s why most rehabs are a complete waste of time – yes, some do use third rate hypnotherapists, but they might as well not bother as most people do not respond to them. Then of course there are some really flashy looking bioresonance only clinics, who promise the earth, but deliver so little – again the problem is that they only work at the physical level, but alcohol addiction is purely psychological, so people end up pulling their hair out when they struggle mentally to cope without their emotional crutch.

      Now, this is what happens after our treatment. This client’s wife wanted to send him to the Priory and was willing to pay £20,000 – she was so desperate to get her husband back. This testimonial is after just one session – client came in the morning for the second session and this is what he said:

      “Since I came to see you over two weeks ago I have lost all desire to drink alcohol. Also, other people drinking around me have not bothered me at all. I am pleased with the outcome. I look forward to seeing you for my luggage-of-life in a week’s time.

      Martin’s father worked as a caretaker at Oxford University when my son was studying his MSc. When he was searching on the web to help his son he stumbled upon our website and saw my son’s picture in ‘About Us’ page. He rang, asked about Bobby then proceeded to book a session for his son who had alcohol problems going back many years.

      Martin had been to rehab over and over again but would relapse within weeks of coming out. As Martin was a heavy drinker we decided it would be better for Martin went to a chemical rehab then came straight to see us in order to avoid an epileptic fit. After one week of Valium Detox Martin was in a pretty bad state so we proceeded with the addiction therapy but left the luggage-of-life part out until Martin was study on his feet.

      Jeffrey (from Cardiff - Wales) Testimonial

      “Carbon monoxide poisoning was the start of my problems. This culminated in me losing my job. I had to stop running and doing any kind of sport and I started to drink. This together with my medication caused depression which forced me to rely on alcohol even more. Over the last seven years I underwent detoxification treatment many times without success. I would quit drinking, get severely depressed and start to drink again. The whole thing because a vicious circle. There was no end in sight until my sister stumbled upon your website.

      You not only stopped me drinking but also helped me reconcile my past. I finally made peace with the people who ruined my life. Now I can think about my ugly past without getting upset. The root cause of my depression and my drinking problem has gone. I no longer need to drink in order to sedate myself. You were right, drinking was the least of my problems.

    • "My only regret is why I didn’t do this earlier"

      Dee Testimonial

      "Hello Mr Ali

      I trust you are well. I am very well! 

      Happy as ever. 

      Since visiting Mr. Ali in 2012, my entire life has changed. I managed to quit drinking easily. I no longer have the urge to drink anymore, I hardly ever think about it to be honest.

      Once I realized that I had a problem, I was convinced that I would be battling this addiction forever, luckily I saw Mr. Ali’s ad in a local newspaper. Desperate, I called his mobile. The treatment was easy and Mr. Ali was very understanding. He acted professional yet very friendly, never judged me once.

      I never thought I would be appreciating little simple things in life again. I live a healthy professional life. I am able to keep promises, make commitments, keep my nearest and dearest happy, and so be very happy myself, deep down. I no longer have guilt surrounding me, doubts about what I did or say, expressions of embarrassment or massive regretful hangovers. I certainly do not miss being 'skint' again.

      I now live a life as if I have been reborn again, back to when I never drank before where I was the happiest ever. I do not take any medication nor attend any AA meetings. I am even confortable around others drinking around me, I will happily pour a drink for guests. I can see a bright, happy love-filled life ahead of me. My only regret is why I didn’t do this earlier.

      Thanks Mr. Ali.
      Kind regards"

      Its Jo here, came to see you Wednesday and Thursday. I had to txt and thank you so much. I cannot believe the change in myself. My partner thinks I’ve been abducted by aliens and replaced with a new woman! 

      Although it’s only been 3 days this is the longest I have abstained from alcohol in over ten years. I haven’t even thought about it. 

      This is nothing short of a miracle for me. I will be in touch in a couple of weeks and let you know how im doing. Also im posting the other cheques monday morning.

      Alan Testimonial

      "Good morning Shokat,

      Although I had made my mind up to stop drinking on the Thursday prior to seeing you on the Tuesday I know your session has really helped me. No Alcohol for 9 days without the slightest problem. Its Saturday morning (normally I would be feeling lethargic and tired) NOT SO, I really feel alive and fit. It’s a wonderful feeling to know I will never drink alcohol again.

      I actually feel proud of myself. Self esteem is creeping back. More than anything to do with myself, my boys are so happy. I am confident I will not drink without another session but I so much enjoy your philosophy on life (it is so similar to mine). When would you like to see me again.

      Have a pleasant weekend”

    • "On the way home I went to the pub with my husband who had a couple of pints but I had water"

      Sharon Testimonial

      “I have had an issue with alcohol for at least 10 years where I had only managed to give up alcohol for 6 days before scumming to the the drink again. Every January I would make a resolution to give up drinking and by the 3rd of January it was already broken.

      I should have given up in June 2009 when I lost my younger brother (aged 29) to cirrhosis of the liver but couldn’t. I had just been made redundant and was suffering from anxiety and alcohol was the only thing that would relax me or so I thought. Also, in February this year I was climbing the stairs taking some clothes upstairs when i lost my footing and did a summersault down stairs from top to bottom, which resulted in me breaking my back (T12 vertebrata and coccyx bone). I had to wear a back brace for 3 months to ensure I didn’t end up in a wheel chair which i put down to being groggy from drinking the night before but again I continued to drink. Also, the pain from the coccyx break was the worst pain I have ever had to live with. I decided in July (2011) that enough was enough and had to do something. I started looking for help on the internet and came across a couple of sites where they offered Bio-resonance System treatment (one had a clinic in Manchester which was local to where I live in Warrington) and yours. However, your treatment was a combination of Laser, Bio-resonance System and hypnotherapy which was more than the other clinic was offering.

      We both came down on the 6th August 2011 and the treatment from start to finish took 3 hours, the first hour was talking to you and the other 2 hours having the laser, Bio-Renaissance treatment and hypnotherapy. When you finished the treatment you asked how long I thought I had been having the treatment for and I said it felt like I had only been there for 25 minutes).

      On the way home I went to the pub with my husband who had a couple of pints but I had water. Usually I would have been craving a glass of wine but there was nothing. Since then I have not needed alcohol and have taken up drinking freshly juiced vegetables and fruit instead which I can highly recommend (even my husband is enjoying them).

      Another of my issues with drink was that I associated alcohol with being able to sleep but this was a false belief. Sure, I was falling asleep but would wake early and was very groggy after 2 bottles of wine. Then if I was due to be away I would get in my car and drive. I am sure on some occasions If I had been stopped by the police that I would have been over the limit which was another reason to stop drinking. The first 3 days were the worst on the sleep front, as I expected I couldn’t drop off to sleep at all but at least when It was time to get up I wasn’t groggy but was still tired. I just happened to visit my local Holland & Barratts health shop on day 4 and saw a magazine on the counter which was the insomnia edition. The person behind the counter recommended Melissa’s Dream supplements made from Lemon Balm which help you drift off to sleep but do not make you groggy the next day. They are not cheap (£11.95 for 40 tablets) but at the moment they are in the penny sale so I got 2 boxes for £11.96. I have been taking 3 (1 hour before bed every night) as per the instructions and have dropped off every time and starting to sleep longer. I wake up feeling refreshed and have a lot more energy, I am also doing some exercises every morning and still have the energy to go the the gym in the evening for 1 1/2 hours.

      This week I have overcome another major hurdle, I have been away from home with work and managed to go for a meal and spend the night in my hotel room without alcohol. This is the first time since I started my job in January that I have managed to stay away and not drink alcohol. Yesterday (15th August) I did my first presentation to a client and it went fantastically well. I wasn’t nervous and kept my cool. In the past I would have been a nervous wreck and would have felt sick the night before but I managed to get a good night sleep and feel on top of the world today"

      Yvonne (from Newcastle) Testimonial

      “Dear Shokat

      Apologies for being late in giving you an update. Since our meeting just over 2 weeks ago, I have lost 8lb in weight. The weight fell of quite easily in the first week. I have found it reasonably easy to give up dairy, tea, coffee, alcohol & wheat. I drink lots of green tea with manuka honey & lemon and I am afraid, carbonated water.

      Social occasions shave been somewhat difficult but FEELIN Great the morning after makes up for it. I have not taken any sleeping pills. It has been amazing to have many good nights sleep for the first time in many years. I have no suffered any acidity. I would say that apart from the usual aces & pains I FEEL approximately 16 yrs old not 60 yrs old. Oh and I am beating my husband at scrabble which I never did before.

    • "I lost the desire to drink after two sessions"

      SR (from Stoke on Trent) Testimonial

      “I’m drinking a bottle of wine a day – only in the evening trying to cope with inability to sleep due to anxiety. I’m alone with four children – their father gives no support. My parents died within eight days of each other in May. I’m finding tolerance to one bottle of wine and recognise I have a problem. I don’t want to drink any more.”

      I started to consume about a bottle of wine a night. When it came to maybe another drink afterwards and maybe another bottle after that I knew that was very serious.

      When monitoring my blood pressure it was bordering on hypertensive. I tried to cut out the alcohol and struggled doing so. I felt the best way forward for me was to investigate hypnotherapy to see whether that would help. After a long time trying to find an appropriate person going on websites and doing different things I decided to come to you. I liked the professional advert. I came with trepidation and nervousness as well. Because I don’t know very much about you and the environment as well it could be very vulnerable. But fortunately that was not the case. I had the two sessions and I think I am okay. I can’t say I have overwhelming aversion to wine or anything like that but just a distain.

      I work very closely with stroke families and stroke victims and one of the factors of stroke is alcohol. I am aware that I should not be consuming a bottle of wine a day and end up a statistic either through stroke or liver problems or other health issues.

      I do recommend hypnotherapy and I may want to come back for more treatment to do with other area’s of my life. I see you had someone who wanted to get over her ex (chuckle) that’s interesting.

      Since leaving here after the first session I have not had a single drink or had the desire to drink. I don’t think I will ever drink again"

    • "I quit drinking alcohol. My skin has improved, my IBS has improved, my outlook on life is now full of hope for the future"

      Susan Smith Testimonial

      "Shokat

      I just wanted to let you know how good I am feeling, I went to for 1 week to Turkey after seeing you and have not touched any alcohol or anti-depressants since I had my 2 appointments with you, no cravings at all; in fact I feel great. I feel like at last I have a life worth living, People are beginning to comment on how healthy I am looking, I have been in pubs; restaurants with people drinking around me; it does not bother me in any way at all. My skin has improved, my IBS has improved; my outlook on life is now full of hope for the future. Today the sun is out the birds are singing (I can hear them now!) & I am going out for a long peaceful walk.

      Thank you so much, Sue.

       

      I am writing a letter describing my treatment, help received and the time I spent with Mr Shokat, please contact me if further details are required. I contacted Shokat several months ago after reading about the treatments and his almost 100% success rate. When I originally contacted Shokat I explained that paying for treatment was very difficult as was on benefits and the sole carer for my adult autistic cousin. Shokat immediately offered to treat me for a minimal deposit and allow me to pay monthly with no interest. This in itself gave me faith in Shokat’s ability to treat my alcohol addiction but I did wonder if there was a catch as this did seem too good to be true, a person willing to treat an addict for a small deposit and trusting an addict to continue to make monthly payments.

      I am very happy to say I placed my trust in Shokat, arranged my appointments and travelled to Birmingham to meet Shokat at his house for my initial consultation, 1st treatment session and make arrangements for my 2nd appointment the following day.

      I arranged a taxi to take me to Shokat’s house from the hotel, the taxi driver told me he often took people to and from Shokat’s house and that he was amazed by the stories people had told him regarding successful treatments they had received from Shokat, adding “No-one has ever said a bad word against him so he must be doing something right".

      When I arrived at Shokat’s house I was introduced to his wife who then went upstairs while I had my consultation and 1st treatment session. I felt completely at ease in Shokat’s company and he was extremely patient explaining everything to me in detail and put me completely at ease about my treatment sessions. I have not had any alcohol since my 1st treatment with Shokat and also gave up my anti-depressants after my 2nd appointment. I have suffered no withdrawal symptoms at all.

      My own GP had kept me on anti-depressants for over 13 years, I was originally put on them for post natal depression, my son is now 14 years old! I have never felt better in my life, can finally see a future for myself and look forward to each day as never before, this is all without any doubt a result of my treatments from Shokat. Shokat’s wife was in the house during both my sessions but I felt safe alone in Shokat’s company, Shokat acted professionally at all times but it was also obvious to me that Shokat cares a great deal about his clients and really does want to help people overcome their problems.

      I am a fully qualified hypnotherapist and Master of NLP, trained by Paul McKenna & Richard Bandler (Unknown to Shokat at the time of my treatment). I will most certainly recommend Shokat to anyone who needs an honest, caring person to help them with issues that are controlling their lives.

    • "I tried to quit drinking with pharmaceutical drugs and my life lost its colour and meaning"

      Julie (from Solihull) Testimonial

      "I have been drinking alcohol for the last 25 years. When I went from one and half bottles per day to two bottles per day, I know I had a problem. I went to my GP who give me lots of drugs and vitamin pills to help me detoxify. He was afraid I would have fits if I came off the alcohol too quickly. The first thing I noticed after starting to take my pills was that my life lost its colour and living became meaningless. My libido dwindled to nothing and I lost all interest in sex which is completely unlike me. I also had terrible problems trying to sleep. Within weeks of my first detox I found myself drinking again. My GP wanted to put me on another detox programme but this time I refused.

      I rang Shokat who assured me that no one he know had suffered from a seizure by quitting drinking two bottles of wine per day. I came to see Shokat and after my first session I quit drinking. 

      After the second session I was liberated from the pain of my turbulent past. 

      I now sleep like a baby and my libido has returned with vengeance.

    • "If any future patients are questioning your methods I would happily tell them not to. THIS WORKS"

      Diane Testimonial

      “Dear Shokat,
      I have to write and tell you how impressed I am with your service. I have been in a world of turmoil for over 8 years. Binge drinking, binge eating and occasionally Cocaine frenzies. This lead me to become sluggish, fat, depressed and lonely as well as loosing my job.

      I have tried everything to help myself but having a stubborn mind and challenged each option knowing it wouldn’t work. Weight Watchers, Councelling, Alcohol Councelling, Anti Depressants, Personal Training and then a Gastric Balloon inserted for 6 months. These were a few of the options I took. I was desperate and lost. I searched the website for answers to my problem and your website came up. I looked at it thinking rather skeptically that nothing can be 100% and that it would be another fad that failed. I was on the verge of taking out a loan for a gastric band knowing this was a permanent fixture. I didn’t want to go through the operation but felt it the only way to help me stop this self destruction of my body. However, I chose the option to attend Life Principles (thinking can this really work?).

      Well two weeks into the programme and I have not had one drop of alcohol since the day of hypnosis and I am also eating healthier. I have lost 6lb and know I am going to get to the goal of being healthy and slim. I do have 3 stone to loose but know I can do this with your help. If any future patients are questioning your methods I would happily tell them not to. THIS WORKS!!! (as long as YOU want it to work). 

      In addition, Shokat, you have been very generous and helped my daughter to overcome her eating disorder and clear her mind of past emotions which will help her to become healthy and more positive. Thank you and I look forward to telling you I have reached all the goals that for so long have been locked away from me"

    • "I WISH I had had the good fortune to have met Shokat YEARS EARLIER"

      A (teacher from Scotland) Testimonial

      "I WISH I had had the good fortune to have met Shokat YEARS EARLIER – it would have spared me years and years of emotional distress and pain, as well as damage to my health and well-being.

      Hi Ali – Apologies for this ‘more rushed’ testimonial. I had a much better one, nicely laid out and in much more detail all ready to send off to you but, annoyingly, my laptop decided to ‘give up the ghost’ completely! It is now away for possible repair, not sure when/if will be back! In any case, I will probably have lost all my work so I have had to start all over, go to a Library and type up this abridged version but – no matter – the sentiments are the same. I hope they are of assistance.

      To Whom It May Concern:
      I wish to fully endorse Mr Ali Shokat’s work /treatments and his manner of dealing with patient/client. The crux of my original testimonial was-

      1. Mr Shokat’s methods and treatments are, by far, the best I have come across (and I have tried other methods in the past – one, with some success, but nothing like the success I am having with Mr Shokat’s methods). I am undergoing his Luggage of Life programme, whilst trying to get rid of 3 deeply entrenched bad habits/addictions – one of which an increasing problem was with/dependency on alcohol.

      2. I have been being treated for almost 1 year now and am continuing with my treatment. I most certainly would not be continuing my treatment with Mr Shokat,if I had any doubt about his professionalism! His manner is correct and professional. (In fact, as a female + as someone, who is also rather circumspect, I always take appropriate measures of security in certain situations, e.g., meeting unknown person/especially male – for the first time. Thus, (unbeknown to Ali – I feel I should apologize to you, Ali, for this next bit but I know that you will understand and indeed, may even be grateful, as it is further proof of your trustworthiness + professionalism) on my first visit to Mr Shokat’s, I made sure I was driven there (and waited for) by a senior, male relative (one who has the power and contacts to deal with any untoward instance that may/may not occur). Nothing, of course, did occur but I consider it pays to be cautious, at times. Furthermore, I took no valuables/jewellery – only paste jewellery with me (such were my own fears about hypnotherapy!), except for my mobile phone and a good watch. No problem again. In addition, on the website, it states one can have the session recorded. I duly had my session recorded. I can’t recall now if I or Mr Shokat brought it up but, either way, he was quite happy to do that.)

      Out of the 3 things I went to see Mr Shokat for, I am free* of 2 of them. (* I would say 100% ‘cured’ but am a little wary of using such wording, in case I jinx my so far excellent success in these 2 areas!) The 3rd area (+ probably the main root cause) is also a great deal better but may need a little more work. I have every confidence that Mr Shokat will eradicate this too. I understand this latter issue – namely, truly believing in oneself fully, having a deep, inner confidence, eradicating anxiety, having the inner strength to believe in a happy future – make take more treatment, after all, it has been with me since I was a small child.”

      In conclusion, I ONLY WISH I had had the good fortune to have met Mr Ali Shokat/come across his website YEARS EARLIER - it would have spared meyears and years of emotional distress and pain, as well as damage to my health and well-being. However, I am not going to dwell on that – I shall now make up for the lost time, the lost years - now that I am healthy and well again and growing stronger emotionally. I would advise anyone struggling with similar, entrenched bad habits and/or addictions to seek Mr Shokat out. It will be the best thing they ever do"

    • "I really feel that Shokat has saved my life"

      Jacqui Testimonial

      "I had been in treatment centre’s 3 times, 2 x 30 days and 1 x 14 weeks and always relapsed just weeks after leaving the centres. I had such awful cravings for alcohol and when stressed, anxious or upset I would have to self medicate.

      I travelled from Ireland for my treatment and was immediately put at ease by Shokat. He is such a genuinely nice, caring man, who is interested in helping people recover from life's difficulties. And his enthusiasm is contagious! The Treatment went so well, I had drank on the Tuesday before my visit on the Thursday as I was finding it very difficult to stay away from alcohol at all. I slept well after the first treatment but as I suffer from insomnia after the second treatment I had difficulty sleeping which made me anxious.

      I contacted Shokat and he immediately fitted me in for an extra session. I have come home and since my visit I have not at all craved or wanted/needed Alcohol at all. Its amazing a pure Miracle! And there have been many stressful times in the last few weeks, where I would have definitely needed a fix of alcohol to get me through! but it has not entered my head at all!

      I know this sounds dramatic but I really feel that Shokat has saved my life as I had crashed several cars and my self esteem was so low, I had contemplated suicide on many occasions and had begun to self harm. I feel calm, contented and I would even say happy for the first time in many many Years. I have more energy and even exercise now, and have caught some of Shokat’s enthusiasm. And to him I will be forever grateful.

      My family can not believe the change in me physically and mentally!

      I would recommend that everyone struggling no matter how sceptical give this treatment a chance.

      You deserve it!

      Thank you so so much Shokat”

    • "I had forgotten what a special present life can be and am slowly learning to live it again"

      Jon (from Warwickshire) Testimonial

      "Hi Shokat,
      I would be very happy for you to use my feedback as a testimonial on your website, but Not my photograph or picture at this stage. Also I would prefer my identity to just appear as either ‘Jon’ or ‘Jon from Warwickishire’. I hope this is ok with you.

      As a quick update I am still genuinely 100% alcohol free since my treatment with you, and I feel so good about this. It is already over six weeks since I visited you and despite having numerous difficult situations to deal with where in the past I would have easily reverted back to alcohol as an escape I have not felt the need or desire to. Personally I am very concious not to become complacent about alcohol and let it slip back into my life, I am genuinely happier without it and wish to stay that way – I had forgotten what a special present life can be and am slowly learning to live it again.

      The CD has actually been a help too and I have used it several times to beneficial effect. Please take care Shokat I hope life is treating you well. I’ll keep in touch as promised and thank you yet again for all your help.

      Kindest regards to you and your good lady. Jon.

      (To be honest I don’t think my words have done enough justice to what you have achieved and the help you have given)"

    • "I first met Shokat in March 2009 when he helped me to stop drinking"

      Claire (from Bedford) Testimonial

      "I first met Shokat in March 2009 when he helped me to stop drinking after many years of struggling with alcohol addiction and having previously had expensive residential treatment in a private clinic, which did not resolve the issue for very long.

      I have been back to see him for two further top-up hypnotherapy sessions in order to complete the full programme and can thoroughly recommend his methods. With or without other people in the house while I was there, Shokat behaved in a thoroughly professional manner and I felt totally comfortable and at ease with the treatment I was given. Shokat has shown himself to be a caring and genuine therapist who works really hard to help people get their lives back on track, using his considerable experience in the field of addiction. His successful treatment of so many clients speaks for itself and his pioneering techniques have enabled us to regain control of our lives where other methods have failed.

      It is a privilege to have met Shokat and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who needs help with addiction. I would be happy to provide any further information required and I can be contacted by phone or email (full contact details available via Shokat)"

      Dennis Testimonial

      "Hi Shokat

      As requested, I am just checking in and updating you on my situation.

      I came to see you on 16th September, 2012 and quite easily say it is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. My drinking was becoming unmanageable and I knew I had to do something sooner rather than later. Since my two sessions, I have not touched a drop of alcohol - totally unheard of  relating to me!

      I am sleeping a lot better and longer and am also eating more! The self hypnosis CD is great as well. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants help to come and see you. I am a living testament to the fact that if I can do it ...anyone can! And I really mean that!

      If anyone has any doubts about hypnotherapy, please feel free to contact me. I am allowing Shokat Ali permission to use this email as a reference for anyone in doubt.

      Many, many thanks again"

      Carol Testimonial

      "Dear Shokat,
      Thank you for your help on Friday, I have to say I feel like a different person. Fresh and cleansed. My partner offered me a beer on Friday night after work and I just said No thanks, I don’t want one. I must have said it very fast, as he looked at me a bit surprised. I sat with him all night while he had a few drinks; the same on Saturday. 

      On Sunday afternoon he wanted to go to the pub for a few beers and I had Britvic orange and lime and soda, it did not bother me at all. I don’t seem to have any craving for alcohol. 

      I have been drinking soft drinks and coffee. I have also had much better sleep, although I still woke up, I went back to sleep quickly. Am I not supposed to drink coffee or eat red meat etc. anymore? I cant wait for the Life Luggage Programme this is a new start for me on a clean sheet. 

      PS Sorry I could not answer my phone. It is the annual dinner of my company’s sales conference. I had still not touched a drop of alcohol. I have no desire for it, how amazing you are. 

      Thank you. I am surrounded by drunk people.

      Thank you again. Kind regards"

    • "I am in a very good place, and the difference from this time last week is like night and day"

      Helen Testimonial

      "I am over the moon how the last couple of days went, an totally sold on hypnotherapy as I was so deep for the first part on Thursday, but did come out of it a bit when you were doing the luggage of life stuff, though did not hear anything in the first part of the session. Yesterday was very relaxed, but do realise how much I am struggling with the emotional stuff. Those glasses really have the effect of getting me into a deep trance.

      I seem to have a sort of indifference to alcohol, and hope it continues. It is strange to feel like that, a sort of void. I know it will take a period of adjustment and there is no way I am going to not make this work this time. I am so grateful for the chance again. I am also sold on the bioresonance and laser. I could literally feel the detoxing in my body. Made me realise how sick I have been.

      I just seem to understand how it all works so much better this time, and did spend the time from speaking to you Sunday, till leaving to travel down, preparing by reading and listening to all your material, which Iknow made a difference.

    • "I am really grateful and feel that I have a new life; the one I wanted"

      Claire Testimonial

      “Hi Shokat
      I saw you two weeks ago and as agreed I’m sending feedback. First of all though, I sincerely hope that your mother is making a good recovery. I can only imagine how proud she must be of a son who changes people’s lives. That will give you some clue as to how it is going. Amazing and brilliant.

      I have not even thought about alcohol over the last two weeks, neither have I wanted to talk about it in any context, which has made me realise anew how negative and unhealthy the entire premise of AA is, where people sit around talking almost exclusively about drink. I want to forget all about it. I play your CD every night, I am sleeping really well, I am not worrying constantly as I used to – in short, I am really happy.

      OK, so I don’t have a job yet, but I am in a much better place to be able to get one. My partner’s drinking isn’t bothering me either. The last two weeks have been the first in 10 years that I have not had alcohol on my mind on a daily basis, whether drinking or not. I was committed to your treatment and did everything you advised, but I am still if I am honest surprised at the effects. It’s as if the self-destruct part of me has been removed (admittedly I still have an eating disorder but that never once formed any part of what I came to you about – I was purely focussed on my drinking).

      I’m not surprised you are busy – I am more surprised that everyone with addiction issues doesn’t come to you! I have also passed your website details onto a couple of people I know who are interested in meeting you about their own problems. I met my mother for coffee the other day, and she extends her thanks to you and says – quote – that I look and seem like a different person, that she can tell that I am not stressed all the time any more and that she no longer worries about me constantly. She is 80 and I have felt terribly guilty about worrying her. It’s not just my life you have improved in this family. I’ve just seen a friend who was fully aware of how bad my drinking was, for the first time since my treatment. He didn’t know anything about you or your treatment but said that I look entirely different “as if a beautiful inner child has been released. Praise indeed

      I am looking forward to seeing you for the Luggage of Life session and am happy to wait a while for this. I am really grateful and feel that I have a new life; the one I wanted but have allowed drink to cloud and prevent my getting on with it for so many years.

      Thank you so much”

      Lorraine Testimonial

      "It is now 7 days since I had a drink. 7 days! I can remember quite a few times over the past 5 years when I have gone 1 day without a drink and a few when I have gone 2 days, but 7? Thank you.

      I can’t say that I have not thought about drinking every day but neither can I say that I have been really tempted. I think that it has been such a big part of my life for such a long time that it just seems really ‘odd’. There have been several times when I have felt a little nervous with regard to the situations that I have put myself in. I have eaten out several times over the past week. Once in an Indian restaurant, once in a pub and today at a café bar with my sister who drank a pint of lager. (each time I have drank soda water!!) My sister was incredulous. Actually, I think I was a little too. Unless I am driving, I never go out to eat without drinking – sad to say that the alcohol has always appealed to me more than the food. I have also been sleeping very well"

    • "I do not crave alcohol, tea and carbonated drinks in the slightest, which is amazing"

      Claire Testimonial

      “Dear Shokat,

      Just a quick email to express my heartfelt thanks to you and to apologise for my initial demeanour. To say that I arrived at your house with a sense of trepidation and apprehension would be an understatement; even though I was 100% convinced that you were genuine and that your methods would succeed, when I told some close family members of my intentions, they expressed grave concern – despite all the terrible things I have done over the years due to drink. I realised in yesterday’s session when you mentioned my difficulty in getting to Birmingham and the credit card issue that I must have offended you and for this I apologise.

      As for the rest, it is amazing. I loathe motorway driving and had need to drive from my partner’s home in Berkshire to Kent yesterday, following my second treatment. As soon as a wave of panic set in, a voice in my head said “for the rest of my life I am going to be strong, calm and relaxed”. If anyone had told me this I might have thought they were mad! Not only do I not crave alcohol in the slightest but I have also developed an aversion to tea and carbonated drinks, which will amaze all who know me.

      I do feel slightly 'drugged' still but imagine that this is natural and an indication that it is all working. I have read all the post treatment advice and am playing the CD although only at night as I find it rather sleep-inducing. Last night I had my best night’s non-alcohol induced sleep for years. I hope that once a day will be OK; if not then please let me know.

      I will as agreed update you in two weeks’ time and am looking forward to the life luggage session.

      I will walk to Birmingham if necessary!

      Many thanks”

    • "I feel that the old Tim is returning, life is a gift worth living"

      Tim Testimonial

      “I first saw Shokat six months ago in June 2011.

      I’d learnt about ‘Life Principles’ whilst researching the internet in connection with my anxiety which I was sure was linked to my dependance on alcohol and long term use of an anti-depressant. I had reached a point where I was drinking every day, usually about four or more pints of beer or lager, and depending on circumstances, possibly some wine or spirits as well. I felt that I was out of control and that my craving for the drink was getting progressively stronger than I was.

      For several years I have tried to stop by willpower but with very little if any success. (For example on holiday two years ago I think I managed four days without a drink). I felt desperate and in need of help. Although I had been taking only the lowest amount of citalopram for several years, I was very scared of stopping it because when I tried reducing it before my anxiety had increased.

      I made contact with Shokat and he was able to see me within a couple of days. In my first session Shokat dealt with my reliance on the citalopram, this was so successful that on my return home to Southampton the following day I was confident to dispose of the remaining tablets and to date I have not missed the drug at all. I sufferred none of the withdrawal symptoms normally associated with stopping. Shokat followed by treating the alcohol addiction and I was amazed that any craving for alcohol had evaporated away!

      After travelling home I was over the moon with the apparent success of the treatment. I had none of the craving for a drink any longer. My family and friends were all so pleased and happy for me, they found it difficult to believe that I had finally stopped with Shokat’s help. After a couple of months people who I hadn’t seen for a while remarked on how well I looked. I’m sleeping far more soundly, my wife tells me I’ve even stopped snoring! There have been many times when I’ve been tempted to have a drink and its not all been plain sailing but thanks to Shokat and Life Principles, I feel that the old Tim is returning, life is a gift worth living.

      For the first time in many years I haven’t got to have ‘stop drinking’ at the top of my list of new year’s resolutions!"

      After receiving treatment from yourself for my drink addiction I have been Sober for 12 days and the desire to drink has left. I am also sleeping well without any sleeping aids. I have had family problems during these 12 days which in the past would have returned me to drink but since my session I have not felt the urge to drink and been able to face my problems head on. 

      I have been more relaxed, am feeling good in myself and I am also stopping at my parents as recommended.

      Here is Sue sharing her story of how she quit drinking alcohol with us over a year ago. As a gesture of goodwill we decided to finish off with a free session on smoking cessation which also worked really well. We have asked Sue to come back for another free session in three months time just to check-up on her smoking cessation when we may be able to persuade her to share her story of how she overcame her depression with our help.
      Sue has move on with her life. She now has a very loving and supporting partner and life is rosy once again. She is also made a lot of progress with her career.

      Sue has also lost over one stone in weight since she came to see us. She paid extra for the weight but the smoking cessation was done free of charge as a gesture of goodwill. We always want the best for our clients.

      Because of her work Sue asked us to distort her testimonial in order to keep her anonymous.

      Hi Shokat

      How are you and your wife? I hope the cataract operation went well. 

      Well I'll get straight to the point I haven't touched a glass of wine or any other alcoholic drink since my visit, success again let's hope I can keep it up this times smiling face with smiling eyes.

      I'm still out of work, but feel a lot more positive, don't get me wrong I'm still having my down days, and my husband has requested a divorce! But not having a drink hasn't even bothered me even when he ridiculed me and made me feel so small. Wine has been a big part of my life for years and has been my coping mechanism. He doesn't get that at all he just thinks I'm weak, pathetic and a failure and always will be. He actually said that which made me feel great. 

      I am going to succeed! 

      I've started a course which is helping me get to grips with Microsoft Office and its a recognised qualification which should improve the look of my CV. So fingers crossed the New Year will bring new beginnings. 

      Thank you for everything you've done for me, you have changed my life. My favourite line is " If it hadn't been for Shokat" I start so many sentences that way.

      Chris E Testimonial

      Hi Shokat,

      I wanted to update you with my progress, it has been over seven months since I saw you and have not drunk any alcohol since our session together. I do not think about alcohol or crave it, at Christmas I had family around drinking alcohol I did not think once that I wanted a drink.

      You have totally cured me of the demon drink, but a side affect is that I crave sugary things I wake up in the middle of the night and come down stairs and eat sweet things. Over Christmas time I ate so many biscuits, sweets and cakes that I put on 7 pounds of weight. If I could crack this problem then I would be a happier person, as I am under you care for another six months is there anything you can do for me to cure this?

      Thanks

      Andrew Testimonial

      “Dear Shokat, 

      It has been two weeks now since I last saw you and I have to say that being a sceptical person I didn’t think that Hypnosis and a Bioresonance machine would ever stop me drinking. How wrong was I! I haven’t even had the urge to sit down and mellow with a pint or two.

      I came to see you, as I knew I was on a destructive path and quite frankly it wasn’t going to be all that long before there was a serious repercussion of one sort or the other. I knew it was out of hand. I knew I had to do something about it and it was only the intervention of my wife, who reads everything and that by chance she came across your advertisement and read all about you.

      So here I am, already back on my fitness routine, back in full control and feeling extremely good about everything. I have been in the bar and didn’t even flinch. I tell people I don’t drink and I have a pint of water.

      I should stopped years ago, but I didn’t. However, you helped me and I am very grateful. Personally, I think it was money well spent and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stop. Make it easier on yourself, go see Shokat. Thank you once again.

      As to the thought of gambling and going to a Casino the thought is just not there, I feel it would be just a waste of time, previously I would be checking matches on line, reading the racing form and having a flutter, but now I am just not interested.

      You just wiped the hunger for Alcohol and Gambling away. Initially I knew I needed help with the alcohol but I got assistance on the gambling front too.

      I am very pleased – thank you”

I would say that apart from the usual aches & pains I FEEL approximately 16 years old not 60 years old. Oh and I am beating my husband at scrabble which I never did before.

      I look forward to seeing you in 3 months”

    • "The power of our laser and bioresonance machines to help you quit drinking"

      Davida (from Dhahran, Saudi Arabia) Testimonial

      "Having been a fairly heavy smoker for nearly 30 years, I had previously tried EVERY other method of quitting with varying degrees of short-term success, including hypnotherapy. July 14 2009 marked my 15th month without a cigarette. 

      This has, by far, been the easiest and most effective way to ‘quit’. I have had my moments and some days were harder than others, at least at the beginning, but - in the main - it has been a breeze. 

      I am a few pounds fatter, but a lot fitter. I smell better, I look better and I am sleeping more soundly. And, my family is a lot happier. A notable side-effect has been a distinct lack of interest in drinking. Although I wouldn’t consider myself to have been a heavy drinker, I used to really enjoy a drink and a cigarette..now I’m as happy with a water or diet-coke"

      Comment: Shokat Ali - Life Principles

      A lot of people dismiss the power of our bioresonance machines to get you to overcome your addictions. The testimonial below will demonstrate the power of these awesome systems. This is the second time someone came to quit smoking cigarettes but also quit drinking – magic or what? We can’t share our commercial secrets, but can you understand why having a three pronged approach is better than just one (laser, bioresonance and very advanced hypnotherapy)?

      Quit Smoking 8 - The power of our laser and bioresonance machines to help you quit drinking

    Now, moving on to our safe holistic methods:

    Overcoming any addiction with our system is much easier because it affords true freedom at all levels: Bioresonance + Laser + Solid Hypnotherapy + Luggage of Life Programme = TRUE MENTAL, PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL FREEDOM! Because this system also deals with the HABIT you don’t put on weight or become depressed after you overcome your addiction.

    By the way, we deal with every other addiction apart from heroin in exactly the same way. So whatever the problem, overweight, cigarettes, spiffs, cocaine, crack, alcohol or gambling then your search is over.

    Other Alcohol Treatment Options

    Long-term dependency on alcohol can cause serious health problems but it is a disease that, although at present no medical cure exists, can be successfully treated. The first acknowledged step to any rehabilitation is for the person once diagnosed to accept they need treatment.

    Alcoholic Treatment Through Hypnosis

    The problem with this method is that some hypnotherapists are really bad at treating addictions (which requires a very deep trance) plus the fact that some people are a nightmare to hypnotise. However, hypnosis when undertaken by a competent professional can change a person’s life around in all sort of ways. Yes, it’s God’s gift to mankind but only when undertaken properly.

    We had one lady who could not be hypnotised but still managed to quit drinking just with our Bicom 2000 bioresonance system. We had another lady who came to quit smoking with our help but also managed to quit drinking because of the e-Lybra treatment. We have had scores of people who have given up their addictions of every kind just with laser and/or bioresonance treatment when the hypnotherapy did not work for them.

    Recently we saw a lady who wanted to quit smoking cannabis but had terrible problems sleeping or relaxing because of problems of her past. She came for her first session during the day but kept going to the toilet every few minutes because of an unusually small bladder so the hypnotherapy was compromised. During the first session she had laser and Bicom 2000 treatment. Later in the evening during her second session she had another session with the laser system followed by e-Lybra treatment. Again, she could not relax and the hypnotherapy was abandoned. However she came back after losing all desire for the cannabis and was sorry for her flippant behaviour two days earlier. So even though this client was impossible to hypnotise she still quit smoking with our help – an added bonus was that she also quit drinking alcohol. Now, is this magic or what? Can you see why the drug industry and the NHS ignores self-evident truth like this because it they did then they would be caught with their hands ‘in the till’ for useless methods, drugs and procedures – it’s a pretty sick, messed-up world we live in where truth and honesty are in very short supply from the so-called ‘stupid’ experts.

    Can you now understand why a combined system like ours makes a lot of sense?

    Detoxification Treatment

    Intense detoxification treatment, whether in the controlled environment of a health centre or self-regulating withdrawal is another popular choice. Here the alcoholic treatment relies on abstinence and will sometimes include the administration of tranquillisers such as Val or Lib to ease the symptoms of withdrawal.

    This approach is only for the people who are drinking far too much, perhaps 50 units per day (from the time they get up to the the time they go to sleep) where sudden withdrawal can land you in hospital or in some cases it can be fatal. Drinking perhaps one or two bottles of wine per day, or binge drinking does not need this approach as sudden withdrawn is not dangerous. However, medical professionals are always over cautious and endorse this route (we are always amazed at this). Val or Lib gives the person, as far as the body is concerned, the same benefit as drinking alcohol so sudden withdrawal is not dangerous. Once you come off the alcohol, you are gradually weaned off Val/Lib over about a five day period. However, some people get addicted to these drugs and end up drinking alcohol and taking these pills. Although this method makes it safe to detoxify if you are drinking far too much, it does nothing for the mental part of the addiction which accounts for about 99% of the problem, the physical side accounts for 1% if that.

    Pharmaceutical Alcoholic Treatment Options

    While there is not a specific pill to cure alcoholism, there are medical treatments that can help with giving up drink. Drugs can be taken that act as a deterrent against alcohol and make patients sick if they drink any. Others can be taken to reduce the levels of alcohol craving, whilst some drugs are administered to relieve the painful and distressing symptoms experienced when kicking the booze.

    This is a stupid idea if you think of constitutes alcohol addiction and it simply does not work (just makes a lot of money for the drug companies). Some people stop taking these pills and then have a drink. Others start drinking as soon as they have completed the course. This incredibly daft method does nothing for the mental part, or the habit and in our opinion is a complete waste of time.

    Alcoholics Anonymous

    This time-honoured organisation has for decades been providing support and understanding from fellow sufferers and reformed drinkers. Research has shown that this form of treatment acts as an effective way of helping alcoholics to stay sober.

    The AA have written into their constitution that they will not refer anyone to an outside organisation no matter how good their results (Sounds a bit like the NHS). Exactly what do they have to fear? Are the afraid of the useless success rate they enjoy?

    It’s a society run by ex-alcoholics for alcoholics and uses group therapy to help you to quit drinking. You have to sit in these meetings and listen to other people’s problems which is enough to turn anyone into an alcoholic. Sometimes the person running the meeting is himself/herself intoxicated with alcohol. Just like the useless society they are, their success rate is just as useless – very few people quit with this organisation. By the way, most charities, and government quangos, who pretend to help people with addictions, are just as useless and just as corrupt – we have no time for their pathetic offerings.

    Allan Carr Clinics

    Allan Carr clinics have become an institution so we have to cover this method as well. Although the success rate of these clinics is better than the NHS the method does nothing about the three part of the addiction (physical, mental and habit). The system just gets you to understand your psychological dependancy on alcohol.

    The result is that you may quit smoking or drinking with their help but there is a possibility that you may substitute another habit instead of drinking/smoking such as eating so you can put on a lot of weight. You can also become depressed or you can put on weight and become depressed. Most people smoke or drink as soon as they come out of the clinic and because of this their attrition (failure rate) rate is abysmal.

    With all it’s flaws, Allan Carr, bless his soul, has helped millions of people quit smoking or drinking with his best selling books – this is always a good place to start.

    Our Unique Methodology

    The problem with all of these methods, apart from hypnotherapy, is that they only work at the physical level or just get you to understand about your addiction – they do nothing to deal with the actual problem which is a mental one and not physical. This is why the failure rate even with the most expensive rehabs is terrible – most people, after spending £20,000 start to drink within weeks or months of coming out. We had one client who was locked up in a South African rehab for six months to help him come off cocaine but snorted cocaine in the very same day he came out of the rehab – with us he quit using cocaine in just 2h and only slipped-up once during his free 12 month aftercare visits.

    We know of another lady who went to an Australian alcohol rehab and was incarcerated for two years to help her quit drinking, then she came to the UK, her marriage broke down and started drinking again – this time she came to see us and quit instantly after the first 2h session, in the second session we took away the pain of her failed marriage. When she came in for her three month check-up, she told us that she derived more benefit from our therapy than she did from her 2 years in rehab, what’s more we also dealt with her depression and terrible insomnia at the same time so she could go home happy – 12 months later she still had not touched a drop. 

    We deal with the problem at every level (physical, mental and habit) using a multi-declined approach with laser, bioresonance and with several very advanced forms of hypnosis/hypnotherapy/NLP/Timeline techniques. Our failure rate is almost zero and that’s why we can afford to look after our clients for a full 12 months at no extra charge. Our cost is about 1/20 that of a rehab clinic but we not only deal with your addiction but also take care of insomnia, anxiety/depression and all other unresolved negative emotions at the same time. So not only do you quit drinking but you also become a far more resilient person as a result, and capable of coping with what life throws at you in your stride.

    Good Morning Shokat

    I would like to thank you once again for all your help and support.  Although it has only been two weeks since I first came to see you, you have made a tremendous difference to my way of life.

    I have had a drink problem for over twenty years and most weeks I would drink several times a week, often heavily. 

    I had also been on anti-depressants for over five years and more recently my dosage of Cit-al-opram had been increased to 40mg.

    After my visits to you on 16th and 17th of May 2015 I stopped drinking and stopped taking the Cit-al-opram.

    I have been out socially on several occasions since and have not felt the desire to even have one alcoholic drink. This would before now have been unheard of for me, I used to have a drink or two before even leaving the house, whilst getting ready.  I have been to two social occasions with work , another with friends to see live bands and another to catch up with friends in the local pub.  On all occasions previously I would have felt the need to drink making the excuse that it helped me relax and be more sociable however I enjoyed myself just as much without the alcohol.

    I have been feeling more tired recently even though I am sleeping well and my joints have been aching more than normal but I think this may have something to do with coming off the Cit-al-opram after taking it for so long.

    I am feeling much more positive in myself and determined to stick with it. Thank you again so much Shokat and I look forward to catching up with you in a few months time.

    Thank you again for everything.

    How the NHS treats alcohol addiction compared to people like us?


    Lets look at the NHS website and see what they have to say about alcohol addiction:

    Treating alcohol misuse

    How alcohol misuse is treated depends on how much alcohol a person is drinking. Treatment options include:

    * detoxification - involves a nurse or doctor supporting you to safely stop drinking; this can be done by helping you slowly cut down over time or by giving you medicines to prevent you experiencing withdrawal

    * counselling - including self-help groups and talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

    * medication - there are two main types of medicines to help people stop drinking; the first is to help stop withdrawal symptoms and is given in reducing doses over a short period of time; the most common medicine that’s used in this way is called chlor-diaza-poxide (Lib-ri-um); the second is a medication to reduce any urge you may have to drink; the most common medications used for this are acamp-ro-sate and nalt-rex-one; these medicines are given at a fixed dose and you'll usually be on them for 6-12 months.

    http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Alcohol-misuse/Pages/Introduction.aspx 

    The NHS answer to your drinking is to help you detoxify safely by getting you to slowly cut down to safe level then stop drinking. The NHS tends to be overcautious - the vast majority of our clients do not need a chemical detox treatment. One in a thousand may be chronic alcoholics, but we have developed our own extremely safe methods that don't involve drugs, and out of thousands of people we have helped so far, not a single person has suffered any ill effects. 

    They then suggest self-help groups and talking therapies such as CBT (this could cost your about £1,000 over six months). Believe it or not, hypnotherapy is a talking therapy but is much faster and more profound. So instead of six months of CBT, you can quit drinking in just two hours.

    Finally, the NHS can provide you with medication to stop sudden withdrawn symptoms, which could be fatal. The vast majority of our clients are not in this 'danger' category and can come off the alcohol in one simple 2h session without suffering any withdrawal symptoms or life threatening medical problems. The second session, the next day, is devoted entirely to removing the negative emotions of the past. 

    We have twelve years of experience in this field and more then qualified by experience to guide you through the process. An average doctor has very little experience with alcohol addiction and absolutely no experience of alternative methods of dealing with the problem. The medical profession have their own agenda only they can understand and they are not interested in fast, safe and effective methods of doing things that do not involve the use of drugs. The medical profession and the alternative therapists may as well be living on two different planets. 

    The NHS can also provide you with other medications such as Nalt-rex-one. This route can take up to six months and out of the thousands of people we have helped to quit drinking, only one had previously quit in this way, but when she compared it to our method, she said: 'there was no comparison in the effectiveness of our method compared to the drug based methods'. She lost all desire to drink alcohol in the first two-hour therapy session. Another client took this drug religiously for six months and derived no benefit what so ever - she quit instantly with our help. The NHS method can take 6-12 months, we take two to four hours to get someone to quit drinking. 

    Is the treatment provided by the medical profession essential or necessary?

    Who is to decide which treatment is essential or necessary? Decreasing the quality of your life by taking pharmaceutical drugs with proven dangerous side effects is neither essential nor necessary. Addictions, insomnia, etc cannot easily be "cured" this way. Doctors themselves, in published literature, admit this: 

    "A leading British doctor and author of 'Doctors, Lies & Addiction Bureaucracy', Dr. Dalrymple argues that his profession has totally misunderstood addiction & continues to perpetuate the myth to protect its own existence. As a result, a self-serving, self-perpetuating and completely useless medical bureaucracy has built up to deal with the problem."
    ‘Junk Medicine, Doctors, Lies & Addiction Bureaucracy' by Theodore Dalrymple; 27th August 2007.  

    As the NHS has no statistics for alcohol addiction, so lets look at an example like quitting smoking cigarettes: In the year 2011 the NHS saw 800,000 people to quit smoking. In that year alone, it has cost the NHS a staggering £500 x 800,000 = £400,000,000 which has been shared between the patient's GP, the smoking caesarian counselor and the drug companies. So over eight years, it has cost the taxpayer 3.2 billion pounds for something that only has a long term success rate of just two percent. No wonder the NHS is always short of money. 

    Upton Sinclair — 'It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.' 

    Now that might explain why the NHS can never find well conducted scientific studies on the effectiveness of non-drug methods to help people quit drinking and other addictions - we found several well conducted studies without even trying. 


    Quitting drinking using our multi-disciplined approach has a far higher success rate than any NHS or drug based method:

    We have provided a very detailed submission of our results where we have demonstrated an almost 100% success rate charted over 12 months of our combined system. In the vast majority of cases people quit drinking in just one two-hour session. Compare this to the NHS who don't even know how to deal with alcohol addiction let alone collect some statistics. We conduct face-to-face interviews and follow ups, the NHS  rely on telephone interviews where the patient can be embarrassed to speak the truth. Also, our methods are harmless; the NHS’ drug based methods can be potentially dangerous.

    Do we discourage essential and necessary treatment?

    Not at all and we have no intention of doing that. We offer an alternative treatment alongside the statuary provisions that are safer, more effective and much faster at a fraction of the cost. 

    People only go private and pay for the treatment after they have failed repeatedly on the NHS and with the methods used by the medical profession. No one enjoys paying money to quit gambling when they can do that free on the NHS. These people only turn to alternative treatments when the orthodox treatments have failed them over and over again. About 1% of the people we see have not gone through the NHS before coming to see us. No one can discourage anyone from taking advantage of their statutory provisions, which is everyone’s right in the UK. 

    Alcohol Addiction Treatment - The NHS vs Life Principles (us!):

    The NHS methods can be dangerous - our methods are safe; 
    The NHS method is very long winded - ours is extremely fast; 
    The NHS' relapse rate is high - our relapse rate is almost non-existent; 
    The NHS method of measuring success is unscientific - our method of measuring success is highly scientific; 
    The NHS can spend thousands on each patient to get them to quit drinking  - we charge a fraction of that; 
    The NHS has no idea how long people quit drinking after their treatment - we chart the successes of our clients over 12 months; 
    The NHS do not provide value for money - we provide outstanding value for money; 

    Do we need a new criteria for measuring success in the NHS?

    If the criterion for success 50% of drinkers showing a normal rate on a breathalyzer test after one year, the NHS methods wouldn't be able to meet it. Then not with a single counselor, doctor or pharmacist would get paid. If it wasn't for big pharmaceutical companies being in charge, the NHS would endorse clinics like ours and we would be able to help more people quit, stay quit longer and save the tax payer money!

    Our campaign for justice in the health industry

    The corruption in the heath industry was covered by our campaign in 2010 where we wrote to everyone in Government including The Prime Minister, David Cameron, people in The House of Lords and finally Her Majesty The Queen. 

    The first link is a letter about the legalised corruption in the medical profession and the NHS and why state funded monopolies are bad for us. The second link is the attachment we sent with the letter. The third link is a response from Buckingham Palace.

    A Letter to Her Majesty The Queen

    A real case study of the NHS and Rehabs compared to our methods:

    This is the story of a young man who, before coming to us, had tried every method known to modern man to quit drinking, including spending a month in a rehab costing £12,000 - yet he drank alcohol on the day he was discharged. Our young man went to the NHS, and was put on antidepressants and beta blockers (which did not help at all). However, his GP informed the DVLA about his rehab 'failure', so he lost his driving licence - and had to give up his work. Then he had ten sessions of counselling costing £1,000 - but he would go drinking every time he left the sessions. He even tried the Drug Addiction Centre in his area (as an outpatient). They simply gave him Librium and got him to read from the 12 Step Programme of Alcoholics Anonymous - but, again, he drank alcohol as soon as he got home. He tried AA meetings - but just could not relate to their programme. Finally, he came to us. He was so successful that during a 9-month period he relapsed just once (very briefly after six months) and then once after the nine months. This was someone who had been unable to stay sober for even a day following all the other treatments.


    If there is any intelligent life in the NHS then someone in the NHS ought to look at this and learn something from it. How can you continue to hide behind a lie called 'the evidence bases system' and ignore self-evident truth?

    As one of our clients said, my friends were struggling when they tried to quit drinking with the NHS, I didn't want to faf around like them so I came here. It's the best decision I have ever made, I quit drinking instantly. You can do the same, faff around with the NHS for 12 months or quit in two hours without even trying? Call now!
