I didn't realize it was that simple!
Why are all those addicts & alkies doing all that pain, misery, suffering, jail and death stuff? When all they've got to do is STOP USING!
It's so easy! I'll tell everyone right away - dayem buddy, you're good!
O.K., enough of being facetious.
But if it were so easy, it wouldn't be called addiction.
Which is why there's so many paths to sobriety. It's not the "stopping using" - we all know that beaks the cycle & ends active addiction. But it's, "How do you stop"? And the answer to that is NOT the same for everyone.
Seriously, if stopping were so easy as putting it down, there wouldn't be the death, destitution, and incarceration we see as the result of addiction.
Do you know how many times addicts & alkies say, "After this time, I'm done". And then they are using the next day? Saying/thinking "This is my last day/drink/bump/fix" is a hallmark addiction!
