"You wake up in the middle of the night full of fear, regret, and self-revulsion. You’re miserable because you know you’re killing yourself with your drinking, drugging, smoking, gluttony, or sloth. Maybe you do all that. Maybe just a couple. Maybe only one. Doesn’t matter. They’re all killers, and not just of our bodies. They kill our souls, too. I know because I've been there."

"I drank alcohol, smoked cigarettes, and ate brownies to change the way I felt. Without the tools, I'd either drink, smoke, and eat crap again, or I'd be miserable. These tools make it possible to find peace without drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes, eating crap, and napping."

Pain Meds Don't Cause Drug Addicts
February 29, 2016

"There are all kinds of problem with narcotic pain pills. Patients become tolerant and require higher and higher dosages. Eventually, the pills can cause hyperalgesia, or an increased sensitivity to pain. Based on an informal review of the literature, though, the biggest perceived problem is the high number of people who become addicted to pain pills. When their doctor won't prescribe any more of it, the patient tries to get it illegally, or moves on to easier to obtain opioids like heroin.
