11 minutes of mindfulness enough to make heavy drinkers cut back on alcohol, study says

New research suggests that mindfulness is more effective than relaxation techniques at curbing drinkers’ urges.

TRAINING IN MINDFULNESS strategies could be the key to aiding heavy drinkers in cutting their alcohol consumption, according to a new study.

The new research, published in the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, found that a brief 11-minute training session in mindfulness was enough to coax heavy drinkers into consuming less alcohol the following week compared with similar people who were taught relaxation techniques.

Mindfulness is a psychological process involving people focusing their attention on what’s happening in the present moment.

“We found that a very brief, simple exercise in mindfulness can help drinkers cut back, and the benefits can be seen quite quickly,” said the study’s lead author, Dr Sunjeev Kamboj, of University College London’s (UCL) Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit.
