Crazy 4 Life

Bravo! Dr. Dacher, Bravo! Right on target. I completely agree. In my experience as an addict, my strength has always been my integral life practice (I.L.P.) and my hope that it will grant me the wisdom and awareness to slow down my mind and transcend what I don't know, I don't know. Thank you. And Thank God for Teachers / Healers that have enough consciousness, motivation, strength and creativity to really practice Steps 11 and 12. May God grant us all the serenity and courage to be teacher / healers of ourselves and others.

Dr. Dacher, addiction is not simple but one of the things that we can't ignore is how many more addicts we are making with prescription drugs. As the director of Novus Medical Detox, I daily see the ravages caused by prescription drug addiction created by doctors prescribing it to their patients and then the patients either continuing to obtain it or purchasing these drugs on the internet or the street. Probably the worst of these drugs is OxyContin--legal heroin.

Pain is real. I have had it much of my life first from polio and then from two surgeries. However, there are alternatives to painkillers and they must be tried first. Let's not treat the symptoms but the cause.

Prescription drug addiction is an epidemic and we must do everything we can to stop it before it overwhelms us. Education is a must.

Dear sir,
While I agree with much even most of what you have said in this paper I have to disagree on a few points that I found to be dangerous errors not only for the alchoholic but also our families and and an over all cultural understanding of addiction.The program of AA is not meetings or group therapy (that is the fellowship) which is certainly and unfortunately suficiant for many to stay sober for very long periods of time. However the program is the 12 steps and in diagrement I have to say that the 12 and 12 puts huge emphasis on steps 11 and 12 and does also go as far to say things like "if we are to achieve permanent sobriety" while stressing the need of the phsyche to practice rigorous meditation .It is unfortunate that the wholsale theft of the program of Alcoholics Anonymous by the "medical feild of psychotherapy" has dumded this spiritual program down to group therapy sessions. Hospital treatment and AA are different animals completly and this I feel should be noted to the extreme. Attatchment and Aversion are permanant human conditions even for the Buddha, but all is not lost we can live in practice and embrace suffering or die browbeating it in inner turmoil. AA is not intended to be Replacment therapy it is simply if used and under stood properly A path of resistance against the stream of that emptiness which ales all mankind. I'd like to add that my addict Ego is currently out of control and after rereading this to further disagree out of anger,I can find nothing else. Thank you, and may our lifes energy be always devoted to inner peace for all beings.
MAY ALL BEINGS BE AT EASE
MAY ALL BEINGS BE AT PEACE
MAY ALL BEINGS BE FREE FROM SUFFERING AND THE CAUSES OF SUFFERING.
My name is Joshua and I am a real Alcholic.

Addictiveness of Alcohol

It has been a tough day at the office. Now would be a good time to slip down to the bar across the street and have a drink or two, just to help you unwind. No-one joining you – that does not matter; you are not intending to stay in the bar too long… just a couple of drinks, and maybe one for the road. The alcohol makes you feel better. You are relaxing. The stresses of the office melt away for a while. Alcohol makes you feel good, and feeling good is what life is all about.

Incredible work. Completely nails the nature of the 'dis-ease.'

The meditation is for me, not that a cure to alcoholism and any other vices of the people before her auntie.
