A recent issue of Psychology Today featured a section on fighting addiction
A recent issue of Psychology Today featured a section on fighting addiction. It pointed out that each "year $2 billion is spent advertising and promoting alcohol's intoxicating nature at the same time $10 billion is used to treat people who can't handle liquor" (September–October 1996, p. 35). Overcoming addiction is more than a matter of money, of course. It requires a willingness to accept self-knowledge, to change the way one thinks about oneself. And that isn't always easy.
This week's issue offers the experiences of different people who have had to deal with the influence of alcohol in their lives. In addition to the articles in the focus section, the interview from the radio edition of the Sentinel tells how a man whose life revolved around drinking was restored through the power of someone's willingness to love. And "What is morality, anyway, and who decides—and why should anyone care?" lays out some of the spiritual facts that help to eliminate addiction. It also tells of the author's own release from the desire to smoke cigarettes.
