when he abandoned himself, he was able to move into compassion rather than judgment for his feelings.
As with college students, when we can accept a personal tendency to
be shy or to snort when we laugh, it’s no longer necessary to drink in order to ‘seem different’ than we are. But an alcoholic must hit a bottom before really wanting to get better. o criminal profitability. Life, or death. ‘I don’t feel like doing this,’ or ‘That isn’t really for me.
These drugs however cannot treat alcoholism but
act as prevention. However the outcome may sound
very inspiring but it is not an instant process because the entire process is divided into different sub-programs and proper response and completion of the entire program range only leads toward a drug abuse free life for
an addicted person.

Comment on New Leadership at NAATP by how to quit drinking Sun, 13 Jan 2013 02:01:32 +0000 This model, made popular by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), has countless variations.
Clearly he loves the place and doesn’t want to see it fall apart. The clients are brought into recovery and encouraged to stay motivated even after the regular sessions in the drug rehab centers. But there are drug rehab centers, which are making the path to a normal life much easier for the person involved. Drug abuse and addiction have negative consequences for individual and society. Illegal drugging is the third largest business in the world with a turnover of around $500 billion. 8% from the years 2002-2010. But what is truly disheartening is that 12.

For the record, Jaywalker Lodge doesn’t work with court-mandated clients, just guys with a desire to be free from their dependence on marijuana and other drugs.

And yes the Journal and the other particulars are listed in the link.

So, you don’t have time to “debate” the gateway effect? Why? If you have INDEPENDENT, PEER-REVIEWED SCIENCE, you would only need one chip, like this:
Pay careful attention to the wording and direction: most people that use heroin started with “marijuana” or “marijuana” was the first illicit drug most heroin users started with. Let’s remove the fact the black market exposes people to a myriad of substances and let’s use the fact most heroin users started with “marijuana”, but let’s go even further back and remove the legal/illegal label and just look at drugs in general; akin to the prohibitionist language. Fill in the blank: most heroin users started with __________; therefore _________ is a gateway drug.
A. alcohol
B. nicotine (in tobacco form)
C. caffeine
D. synthetic opiates
The direction issue is one only looks at the heroin user and never the other way; so how many “marijuana” users go on to use hard drugs?

Lynn Zimmer, PhD, Professor Emeritus at Queens College at the City University of New York, stated in his 1997 book Marijuana Myths – Marijuana Facts:

“In the end, the gateway theory is not a theory at all. It is a description of the typical sequence in which multiple-drug users initiate the use of high-prevalence and low-prevalence drugs.”

A similar statistical relationship exists between other kinds of common and uncommon related activities. For example, most people who ride a motorcycle (a fairly rare activity) have ridden a bicycle (a fairly common activity). Indeed, the prevalence of motorcycle riding among people who have never ridden a bicycle is probably extremely low. “However, bicycle riding does not cause motorcycle riding, and increases in the former will not lead automatically to increases in the latter.

“Nor will increases in marijuana use lead automatically to increases in the use of cocaine or heroin.”

I have many independent, peer-reviewed studies; just ask…….
