Q: Is it possible that there is a cure for substance addiction?
A: Yes, and that cure exists!
And why not? When I listen to people state that "anything's possible"
then could it be that there is a cure for substance addiction as well? No?
Why? Just because a bunch of irresolute drunks claim it's not so just
because of the fact that they choose to not recognize it outside of
their sacred doctrine certainly does not make it a falsehood!
The cure has always been out there since the dawn of humankind: Personal
responsibility through permanent planned abstinence. If your own substance
use is causing you problems then you can learn how to KNOCK IT
OFF! That poison isn't good for you and it's your choice to consume and
to revel within the deeeeeeeep pleasure it conviently provides so
that you feel better. Bear in mind that some people choose never to
intoxicate themselves no matter what and naturally feel great!
And besides, the deprivation of quitting a substance addiction once and for
all isn't as bad as the pain of "quitting" actual physical disease (cirrhosis
of the liver, lung disease, cancer, AIDS, etc.), fines, legal hassles, hospital
bills, other expenses and crap which you certainly do not want.
The organization where I learned this powerful technique, Rational
Recovery, has been in operation for nearly two decades. Rational
Recovery only teaches one thing: How to permanently end substance
addiction through brief instruction. This instruction is mercifully
brief and it is ultimately up to you how little or how long it takes. Once
you learn the technique,
Voice Recognition Technique), permanent lifetime abstinence
becomes amazingly effortless! There are no meetings, rituals, prayers, religion,
inventories, sponsors, deities or any other irrelevant "issues" to
act as conditions pertaining to your abstinence. You live life afterwards
on your terms one lifetime at a time with only one tiny
You NEVER intoxicate yourself.
Because You are a ethical, responsible and therefore
who knows RIGHT (abstinence) from WRONG
Only You can make that decision!
Nobody and nothing else can make that decision for
The decision to abstain then becomes a fully informed and moral
decision: Self-intoxication is considered highly immoral behavior
with severe consequences. All You
do is to simply identify any thought, feeling or suggestion which supports
continued consumption of the intoxicant as not you and NEVER
give in to that demand.
You are human and support
lifetime abstinence as well as possessing full control over
Your skeletal and facial muscles. It, while it
is a part of you, is less than human, unlike You, and
wants to remain high, wired, loaded, ripped, fucked-up and shitfaced forever
and can only appeal to You, though
Your thoughts and feelings, to attempt to convince
You to use Your muscles to get what
It wants! It fears, and therefore
struggles against the idea, of a life free from intoxication
while You can and WILL LIVE that life!
It is only along for the ride! You are not
diseased while It wants You to
believe so (with that thought in mind,
GO re-read what's highlighted above in
green again and you'll get the idea).
Got it? It's that simple!
What's interesting (or depressing, insulting, outrageous or any other appropriate
adjective) is that the recovery group movement and its business arm, the
addiction treatment industry, keep repeating the same lies that there is
no cure and that the "treatment" consists
of indoctrination into and lifetime attendance within XA 12-step meetings.
To them the only alternative to its rather provincial and dogmatic way is
"jails, institutions and death." They know that a majority of people
do just that: They go it alone and make the decision to simply never
intoxicate themselves again. Instead of engaging in beneficial full
disclosure the cult willfully withholds all of that vital information
pertaining to permanent abstinence. The
ethics involved and encapsulated within
Informed Consent and the
Hippocratic Oath are woefully absent. It's
through such actions that these charlatans are the ones who are causing so
much harm to the tune of lives irrevocably harmed through an ever-growing
addiction problem in America: A problem which they claim they have the sole
answer to in the form of their mysterious theology.
No more mysteries! You have chosen to learn how to defeat that thing
which has baffled you for so long. That is why you are here. Just as much
as I was sick and tired of being sick and tired one night too many
you chose to get in on the big secret which has been denied to you for so
long. If I helped to point you in the right direction then so be it. You
deserve full credit for liberating yourself.
