There Is a Cure

August 6, 2020

It is often said, and rightly too, that there is no cure for alcoholism or drug addiction. Of course, there isn’t. Cures are for things like diseases, hams, and epoxy. Neither alcoholism nor drug addiction is any of those. It takes what we often call a spiritual awakening and though the term may sound like…


When the Awakened Return to Slumber

May 28, 2020

Have you or anyone you know ever successfully given up a vice, an abusive relationship with a substance or behavior via spiritual means, only to later transfer that obsession to another failing – or even have an outright relapse? Many have.  Well, what happened? There’s the botched broadening of a spiritual living that is the…


Justifying a Drug Addiction – What’s in Your Body?

February 17, 2020

A man once told me that the strongest drug he ever puts into his body is Advil. It was quite a boast considering that he also handily justified regularly smoking cigars. Since he’d successfully given up both problematic drinking and recreational drug abuse, he was quite upset by the notion that his nicotine habit could…


Need Anxiety Relief? These Substances Work

November 21, 2019

Unless they recover, alcoholics simply cannot stop taking the first drink. Why? Because alcohol works. It dulls the pain of corrective conscience every anger-ridden individual experiences. If it didn’t work, neither the problem drinker nor the alcoholic would ever have developed the obsessive need to wash, rinse and repeat his problems away ad infinitum. Food…


Bad Habits Trace to a Single Cause

October 20, 2019

Drinking too much liquor, indulging in drugs, and overeating are objectionable activities, for sure. But they are not the cause of the addict’s or alcoholic’s troubles. Alcoholism, drug and food addictions, vices and bad habits of all kinds are merely obsessive behaviors that manifest as effects following one original cause.  That’s how all obsessions like…


Across the Bridge Into Oblivion

July 2, 2018

I remember a New York City fireman I’d befriended who once told me, “Danny, I love my little daughter with every bone, hair, and fiber of muscle in my being. She is everything to me.” His eyes were wide and wet. Not crying wet. Honest wet. This was real. “Then when I put my mouth on that…


Smoking – The Easiest Bad Habit to Kick

June 10, 2018

If you’re one of those people who’s failed multiple times to get free of a nicotine habit, you might find the headline of this article a bit hard to swallow. But once you understand exactly why you use nicotine in the first place, then the solution to the problem becomes much plainer and easier to approach in…


Cannabis Isn’t Evil

April 5, 2018

When you hear people talk about cannabis, arguing either for or against it, you’ll hear the usual talking points falling into two areas. First, there’s health and medicine. Media is filled with documented as well as undocumented examples illustrating some of the benefits to medically used cannabis––how people previously incapacitated by pain have gotten their lives…


Don’t Stop Smoking. Stop Hating

July 22, 2017

One of easiest vices to kick is the nicotine habit. I know that many find that hard to believe. But that is only because they haven’t understood just why they smoke in the first place, to be able to give it up in the second place. The Stop Smoking experts don’t know. Doctors don’t either. An honest…
