Circa 2018: Addiction is not a disease

tumblr_n1muhgzuE01ts33m5o1_500

Listen to Blog Article HERE!>>>>

It takes Demi Lovato to get a Narcan shot back to life for people to restart a conversation about addiction? What about Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell, Tom Petty, Michael Jackson, Shannon Hoon, Layne Staley, Scott Weiland, Whitney Houston… shall I go on??

Do you know how many times I witnessed right before my eyes… an overdose, someone turn cold, turn blue, drop to the floor, eyes roll back, & First Responders were called to the scene to administer a Narcan shot to save their lives? DOZENS, on the streets of Philadelphia, daily, back in the 90s & early 2000s. What about the 1000s EVERY DAY across the country dropping like flies, selling their bodies & souls? These people are nameless, faceless, & go unnoticed every single day just because they are “insignificant citizens,” or laypeople, if you will. Dozens right this minute are shooting poison into their veins. Every second in America, kids are getting that deadly sweet rush from a little blue bag or a crushed up Opiod pill. Heroin & Opiod pills, subutex, suboxone, fentanyl patches, methadone are all one in the same, if ya ask me.

With all due respect… Demi Lovato takes one too many pills, & all of a sudden the news media & online community holds up candles & sets balloons free into the sky & then holds a god damn conference on the “disease” of addiction & how it’s just like Cancer… but WORSE… they just said on GMA. Wow. What a misnomer, if I ever heard one.

Addiction is NOT A DISEASE. It’s a product of an unhealed society, war, a dysfunctional culture, poverty & low income demographics, a broken educational system, broken family dynamics, abused & mistreated children, cold closed hearts, malnourished souls & unhealthy eating. Addiction is a mistake, that must be learned from in order to not repeat. Flawed behavior, flawed patterns & programs… that must be redirected & then rewired. Morbidly obese people feel the same irresistible propensity toward food that “addicts” do toward substance abuse. The only “disease” we should be addressing is the dis-EASE or non peace in the mind, heart, body & soul that resulted from various buried, built up, accrued reasons via past pains & past lives. In the case of a person in the throes of an active addiction, the “wounded craving center” just so happens to have a louder mouth than the soul’s clear expression.

There is a very easy solution for the problem of addiction… CLEAR TOXIC KARMA, & rebuild from the inside out with SELF LOVE. What is self love you ask? Well, we learn how to love ourselves properly & efficiently via developing a connection with our higher self. The problem with our society today, is that everyone seems to be “spiritually bankrupt” for all intents & purposes. The only true way to experience self love is via having a relationship with our light bodies, not just our physical ones. We connect & develop this by learning how to meditate, not self medicate. We learn mindfulness & gratitude, communion with nature, clean eating, Chakra recalibration, breath & body work, reconnecting with our Divinity.

{Calling all serial rehabers, “lifers,” addicts & recovering addicts….!}

Join a wellness center, a hot yoga class, get acupuncture, Reiki, a good massage… heck… run a friggin marathon or join a gym, stir up those trusty endorphins! Work with a holistic recovery center or healer. Get some balls, get help, ween off the shit, whittle down your desire, practice a little good ole fashion self-discipline, & CHOOSE to walk down a cleaner path. CHOOSE different people, places, & things. Relapses happen. So what. One day, THEY JUST WON’T ANYMORE. Score!

Why? Cause ADDICTION IS NOT A DISEASE. It is a symptom of a malfunctioning mind that must be rebooted, like you would a computer. If a person wants to be free enough from the merry go round of fruitless addiction… They can CHOOSE to walk along a different path. No one is CHAINED to an addictive disposition. Just because nature, nurture, mental illness, depression, criminal behavior, indigence, a bad marriage, bad parents, bad habits, self pity, or poor education, hygiene & nutrition play a role in keeping a person stuck in a negative pattern of weakness… doesn’t mean an obese person cannot lose weight with diet & exercise. An addictive personality can retrain the brain just as well… if they seek to.

No one said it was a walk in the park, sunshine & daydreams, ice cream cones & lollipops… everything in life is a process, but it sure as shit pays off in the end, & definitely beats hitting rock bottom like a dumb ass every time the high wears off. Come join the grown ups… we have fun too. Our fun doesn’t crash or withdraw.

NEW BOOK Risin’

tumblr_muvemygckj1qdt6e2o2_1280

Click here for:  FULL SYNOPSIS

Folks ask me all the time, so, like, whats the book about?

So, here’s my elevator pitch

It’s a laugh-out-loud commentary on how the world & its people are bat shit, deep fried crazy & we are all sandwiched in the middle trying to skip over the mustard & mayo puddles without slipping on pickles, crying a river from the onions, getting caught in the goo of melty cheese, or stung by a hot ghost pepper.

It’s a survival guide, a manual on Manifestation. A non-fiction journey of bits & pieces of my life & why I think I’m qualified to write such a manifesto. It’s a big fat wonderful resource guide like phone books were in 1980. It’s an indispensable aide for all those looking to enrich, enlighten, evolve, emancipate & straight enumerate… more of that good stuff we all innately seek.

It’s a book on how mastering the Arts of meditation, mindfulness, & manifestation can & will give us all we need to prevail in a world gone mad… so that we can reel our sanity back in from the rough seas off the coast of Crazy-town.

Finally,  a book with a sass mouth  that tells the unabridged truth, breaks rules, & pummels right through Author etiquette with a great big sass plow.

It’s refreshing.

Curious? Good.
