Not at all.
As my controversial approach to simply cutting back gained more traction…
Not everybody agreed with my approach.
All was going well until one day I got a call from the head of the personal department of one of the banks. She demanded I come and see her urgently!
I arrived in her office shaking in my boots, where she told me I was not qualified to decide who was an alcoholic or not.
(Which was absolutely silly because I was and am still a licensed hypnotherapist.)
She said I was “in way over my head” and should stop helping these people because anybody who has a drinking issue should quit entirely.
But I didn’t quit.
That’s because I knew this person judging me was not someone who drank at all.
You see, what I didn’t tell you is that she had an alcoholic father.
What was really going on was that she was projecting the pain and frustration she had experienced in her upbringing and throwing it all on me.
