Drug of Choice

Let's try a fun NLP Intervention: Drug of choice!


What is Drug of Choice

This is an intervention that allows the client to "try" a substance, without actually consuming it. Imagine being able to get drunk, or get someone drunk, without even trying alcohol. Now imagine any substance at all, and even mix them up!

There is only one condition. If done directly, the client has to have good previous knowledge of the substance's effects on his body. If there isn't solid previous experience, we can't recall it...unless we find a client that can describe the effects in detail. Then, other watching clients can also start to feel as if under the effect of the substance, even if they had never tried it.

Also, while describing the effect, things can be changed. Some things can be eliminated, while others can be augmented as to tune the substance's experience to whatever we want. This is achieved via sliding anchors or playing with submodalities, all of which we practiced this "season".

In the end, Drug of choice is an state chaining exercise coupled with some anchoring, that can actually be applied to any emotional sequence.


So let's do it!
