Re: “The Science of Addiction

WOW!!! What world are you living in? What sources have you gotten this information from?

An alcoholic is different biologically, psychologically, and spiritually different than a normal person. There are chemicals in their brain that make them sensation seekers and predestined to addiction. Their bodies’ metabolize alcohol and drugs differently releasing chemicals into their brain, which in turn makes them, crave more. Their perspective and view of reality is twisted and warped before the alcohol was introduced. My alcoholism, which still exists, was a symptom of the real problem. I knew what the consequences were, but I could not stop. I was beyond human aid, nothing I or anyone else tried worked for me. God has done for me what I could not do for myself.

Statistics tell us 1 out of 10 are born this way. It is obvious from your comments that you neither have an understanding of alcoholism or the 12 step process.

“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance—that principle is contempt prior to investigation.” Herbert Spencer.
