Taking a little break to work on myself a bit. I may even start a local Step meeting, if you can fathom. People like me need to step back from time to time and check ourselves. I personally need to make a greater effort to pray and meditate more, nourish myself and my family, and oh yeah, have some fun. Hypocrisy is one of the worst of sins.
If you value this writing and message, please help spread the word to others about the blog and the books. The Privileged Addict memoir is my own story intertwined with the education I received up North, as well as the specific process I undertook to recover and induce a mind-altering spiritual experience. Anybody Can Take Steps attempts to universalize the Twelve Step process and extract the various tools and actions contained within it for practical application. The Privileged Addict Quotes is a collection of some of the best quotes and passages from writing and blogging about addiction for the last several years. I will publish new editions as enough new quotes become available. Finally, for everybody who just wants free stuff, there are 500+ blog posts which can be read and that will probably crack (or at least confirm what you intuitively feel in your gut) your perception of addiction and recovery wide open.
May God comfort you all and help the many addicts and families who still suffer find their way back to Him.
