Quit your addiction here and now.

Written by Malcolm Pugh


Continued from page 1

We have to move on and grow up and mature, Much as we ourselves look at kids and feel, that's wrong, but they'll grow out of it in time. And they usually do, don't they, because they see that long term they are better off without doing what they are doing. Why don't we tell them atrepparttar time? Because we know they'll tend to dorepparttar 132489 opposite, and that only they can learn to be wise inrepparttar 132490 fullness of time. We can but advise, and sowrepparttar 132491 seeds.

Thus it is with ourselves.

We have established that we can expect NO HELP FROM OTHERS. Why should anyone else help us anyway, it's our problem. If someone came to you with Ive got a terrible problem with my lawyer, and my cat isn't eating, my mother in law is being funny and I've gotrepparttar 132492 results of my x rays tomorrow you might well be a little concerned, but I bet your first thought would really and truly be how can I get away as quickly as I possibly can without causing offence? .

So whyrepparttar 132493 hell should others be expected to listen to you bleating on about helping you to quit your problem.

IT'S YOUR PROBLEM.

Also you will never stop doing anything you really LIKE DOING. You have to really want to stop for good and ever, not just when you attain a certain level, because you will only gradually go back to what you were before, a PAIN.

If you hear an alcoholic say after a year offrepparttar 132494 booze I'm ok for a pint now, what do you REALLY think will happen if he or she has a pint or short? You know as well as I do.

So really you have to

a) Realise it is just you that matters and does anything b) realise you have to really WANT to quit c) Realise no one else is going to do it for you magically. d) realise that it was a phase you had to live through e) realise that it will definitely kill you, very very painfully f) realise that you will have gained from your descent into hell

There are many ways to quit addictions for different people. If you are reading this they have probably all failed.

Wrong.

YOU HAVE FAILED. MOST ofrepparttar 132495 methods work if you WANT them to work. I suggest that you treat it as a phase of your life, and you have learned from this phase and wish to move on and prove to everyone that you aren't stupid. Because anyone who knows that something is killing them and alienating people, and still does it, is stupid, has not learned one iota from what they have done have not progressed one jot in their mindset.

Water, pure little tap water, fills you up and is needed more than you think. Eighty per cent ofrepparttar 132496 human body is water, so it makes sense to drink it. This is a good start to purifying your body and mind. Drink a few litres a day. And KEEP BUSY.

Remember, I make zero money out of this article, but it is probablyrepparttar 132497 best common sense you'll ever read.

Most articles you will read have a hidden agenda, TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF ADDICTED PEOPLE. If you quit forever, they'd lose your money inrepparttar 132498 future, wouldn't they? They plan on you quitting EVERY YEAR. Why not just do it ONCE. I sure as hell would not want to quit smoking and drinking on a yearly basis

WHAT I GAIN

I just get to have a few more people visiting my website, if you stop for a second or two to read this article, as I get a kick out of getting visitors from all overrepparttar 132499 world, and seeing my site visitor numbers rise. I guess you could think of it as an obsession, or a phase I'll probably grow out of in time

But it is also very nice if you can help people, and I've been places you really do not want to go, and had things done to me you really and truly WOULD NOT LIKE. I SHOULD BE DEAD, I am not.

We all KNOW what we should and shouldn't be doing by and large, and no one can make a difference but ourselves.

It is a sad fact of modern life that everyone expects to be able to do whatrepparttar 132500 hell they like and then someone will bail them out atrepparttar 132501 last minute.

Fact is, if you don't quit, you'll die young, in pain and alone.

YOUR CHOICE, YOUR LIFE,

but you WILL die sooner than most.

Are We Happy, Really?

Written by Joyce C. Lock

Why don't we just admit it? "I am not happy. My life sucks! There isn't a pot of gold atrepparttar end ofrepparttar 132487 rainbow. There is no outside source or circumstance that will bring long term happiness." (Happiness is not a position, situation, or standing that we or anyone else can create. It comes from within.)

Maybe, then, we would facerepparttar 132488 truth. Our methods don't work. Not even religion brings lasting happiness. Only God can bringrepparttar 132489 kind of peace that passes all circumstances. And, to find it, perhaps we could begin considering He really does haverepparttar 132490 answers!

Give not that which is holy untorepparttar 132491 dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew 7:6-8
