Opioid Crisis

I wrote this piece over 3 years ago and the Tsunami of Heroin/Opioid addiction has grown ten fold.

I recently had the privilege of being on the Dr. Oz show to talk about the abuse of prescription opioids and how they can potentially lead to Heroin addiction. It was a short interview segment which allowed […]

Seeking comfortability

 

I always had this idea that happiness and success was the result of living a comfortable life. Having a comfortable life meant you were a winner and if you didn’t have that you were a loser. I don’t know where I got this idea from, certainly not my parents. My Father worked in a […]

Self is the center of addiction

 

For hundreds of years people believed that the Earth was at the center of our solar system with the Sun and the other planets revolving around the Earth. The person in active addiction lives with the same belief in that everything and everybody revolves around them. The problem is that no one understands them […]

All Addictions have this one thing in common.

All addictions have one thing in common, whether it’s drug/alcohol addiction, porn addiction, gambling addiction, sex addiction, food addiction etc., the thread that runs through all of these is the obsession to change the way we feel from whatever negative feeling we have at the moment.

How can I help my Son/Daughter overcome their addiction problem?

 

This is one of the most common requests I get on my website from parents seeking help with their children’s addiction. Many of these children are in their 30’s and 40’s which I always find interesting in that the Mother or Father still refers to them as if they were in their teens or […]

Getting clean & sober doesn’t make us saints or perfect human beings but it does give us the chance to become a more loving and caring version of ourselves. This teaches us to be grateful for the small blessings and to be in acceptance of the storms in our lives, finding peace and serenity […]

It’s what you learn, not what you experience

Many years ago I came to the crossroads of my life and took the wrong turn. It’s too late to go back and take the right road but I’ve learned so much from taking that wrong turn those many years ago. It’s not the road you take that matters, it’s what you learn along […]

The perfect business model

First the Pharma industry made billions flooding this country with opioids which has created a Tsunami of addiction. Now they are selling us medication to relieve the constipation caused by opioid use and selling naloxone (Narcan) medication to counter opioid overdose. This is the perfect business model, like an arsonist who sells fire extinguishers.

Dreams come true

Now that we’re clean & sober we realize that this isn’t the finish but just the start of our journey. It doesn’t make us heroes just because we stopped breaking the hearts of those that love us. We not only rebuild the damage we have caused but we take it a step further and […]
