N closes with a iscussion of the reader s personal philosophy as well as an ode to a new chapter in life as the author assumes that having finished the book that the reader is in agreement with himThere is something in this book that caused me to ponder why it is that Eastern religious approaches are so popular in contemporary America For one this has to Children of the Sun do with a lot of people who are easily fooled and fond of religious thoughts and ways that seem exotic but that fail to meet theeepest spiritual needs of mankind and that try to offer spirituality within a sense of sin which is the strongest appeal of most New Age religious philosophies Yet the author s approach is one that could only be tried in a country that was well off and generally safe to live in as the author s belief that people rew their lives to them through their own thinking would not be feasible to promote in a country Where Bad Things Happened Happened For Generations And Where bad things happened had happened for generations and where amount of positive thinking was going make life any better This book and many of the problems it eals with are the result of affluenza the realization that one had blessings one Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 did noteserve and id not necessarily want to or believe one could pay for those blessings in good works that one felt inadeuate to what was given or alternatively that one had been treated unjustly and unfairly by life based on seeing others o so much better Yet although the book strives to My Hero Academia Series Volume 1 - 20 Books Collection Set by Kouhei Horikoshi deal with root causes it ignores the root cause of human misery in the sins we commit and the sins that others commit against us1 See for example This book gives aifferent perspective to the commonality A perspective from a person who is not Alcohol Addiction Recovery dependent on substances to clearly see and understand the struggle of a person who isependent on substances Also in continuing the sense of perspective that there are other avenues to achieve a successful recovery than the traditional AA or NA That being said if the potential reader is adamant that AA or NA is the only way to achieve recovery I would not recommend this book to them Also if the potential reader is not open to listening to the concept of metaphysics universal lawlaw of attraction treatment through Chinese medicine acupuncture etc I would also not recommend this book to them At first I thought the freuent mention of the treatment center Passages was advertisements to enroll in the facility However it follows the concept of the book if the reader believes the program given in the book will allow them to achieve a successful recovery then it will happen In other words it follows the uote by Henry Ford Whether you think you can or you think you can t either way you re right Helped me a lot and gave me a new irection in overcoming my addiction problem I recommend this book to anyone that s struggling with alcoholism or any other type of addiction This booked gave me hope and helped me to understand the roots of my problems that ignite my addict behaviors A friend of mine gave this to me to
me understand a little about the problems with my I really wanted to get behind this book but it read a little too much like a sales brochuerThe ideas in this book about addiction and alcoholism really resonated with me I liked the concept that there was something underlying addiction I liked the idea that addiction was simply a symptom of other issues that needed to be ealt with It made sense However I wonder if that is just the case because I am an outsider looking inAlso the fact that the book says essentially that some people can Beating the Odds - From shocking childhood abuse to the embrace of a loving family, one mans true story of courage and redemption drink oro Climax (Double Alchemy, drugs recreationally and it isn t a problem but others that have had an addiction problem can nevero them again makes the whole argument seem like a non seuitur How is it that someone can be cured but they can t ever go back and Peace DeLeos Action Thriller Singles do the thing they were addicted to If they are cured then they should be able too it recreationally and it wouldn t be a problem rightThis leads me to believe that while there may be underlying problems that triggered the start of an addiction the addiction itself is indeed a weakness in a person that needs to be ealt with We can t wash our hands of the weakness just because we have solved the problem This person still has an underlying and possibly genetic issue that needs to be addressed in addition to whatever psychological isorders they may haveOn top of that I read a scathing article in the LA Times about Passages According to this article a lot of the stats thrown around in the book the 84% cure rate especially are complete bullshit I m no authority but it is hard to believe in a place that claims they just want to help people but charge 30K per month to The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom do it Rates like that scream extortion.

nearly three years to finish this book It is not a book you really want to have to read but when it became uite apparent that my husband s brother needed serious intervention with his alcoholism I tried to educate myself by reading several books and research articles as well as talking with numerous treatment centers and therapists He has been through various treatment programs has been

Prentiss and his son or at any of the other facilities I found which offer a similar experience and treatment beliefs I am aware that this book is largely a 238 page brochure for their services but I have to say I pretty much agree with their approach My brother in law has been throughetox several times but always went back to Alien Contact drinking Why Why was he able to navigate his life as a kind of functioning alcoholic for thirty plus years and then began a sharpownward spiral Prentiss writes that there are four causes of The Rules of Engagement for Overcoming Your Past dependency chemical imbalance unresolved events from the past beliefs you hold that are inconsistent with what is true a bit new age y but absolutely believable and an inability to cope with current conditions I think that my BIL has at least three of these four issues and the inability to resolve even one of them has surely led him to this place of suffering Still I recommend this book to anyone looking for an answer to addiction It is a refreshing read and my copy is highlighted and marked up from beginning to end A few of my favorite bits A few weeks of abstinence from therug is usually enough for the withdrawal symptoms to pass but after the withdrawal symptoms end we ll experience a return of the symptoms of the underlying condition which the Bibliographia Aethiopica II drug was masking If those

causes I write about schizophrenia not alcoholism but I find The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure very informative even if alcoholism or addiction is not your particular problem On the surface schizophrenia seems to have nothing in common with al One of the best books on recovery I have ever read A refreshing perspective The first 13 of the book is taken up with how the son wentown the addiction highway The authors believe in the Holistic approach to Cure their patients They also run a Very Expensive recovery center The book is 1 giant advertisement for their center I am not impressed with their methodology Read with an open mind and uestion how you feel about what you have been presented As good intentioned as the book was written it came off as an advertisement for the author s treatment facility Passages in book form It uite frankly told the reader who was presumed to have an addiction that there was only one way to recovery their method As a clinician who works in the addiction population I felt myself reading and Different Like Me: A Book for Teens Who Worry About Their Parent's Use of Alcohol/Drugs defending the clinical philosophies of my employer Clinical treatment facilities need to JOIN together not pull the field apart sIn many ways this book is a snake in the grass That is not to say that it is without value but rather to say that the author takes a while to tip his hand at his true agenda The book begins with the assumption that the reader is addicted to alcohol or some other substance and proceeds to attempt to win the sympathies of the reader byiscussing both from the author s view as well as his son s view that young man s struggle with addiction to heroin cocaine and alcohol The author uses this approach as a way of exploring the Alcohol y Creación deeper roots of addiction and the fact that addiction is almost always a mask for somethingeeper a way to self medicate seeking to avoid labels as well as condemnation So far so good And then somewhere around the middle of the book the author shows his true colors in his attempts to spread Buddhism and other Eastern religious practices It should be noted that this is by no means a uniue problem among this type of literature 1 as it appears the audience of people struggling with anxiety andor traumatic childhood andor addictions is ripe for attempted exploitation by various prophets of heathen Eastern religious practices and philosophies something that ought to be a warning to many people about the crying need for biblical counseling help that avoids The Wet and the Dry: Irrigation and Agricultural Intensification in Polynesia demonizationThis book s length at over 300 pages will likelyeter readers who are not committed to finishing it Unfortunately the structure of the book has all the appearances of a bait and switch with a lot of short chapters opening the book and then a lengthy chapter towards middle of the book that reveals the author s anti Christian agenda The first few chapters give the author s pledge to the reader that a cure for addiction is possible focus on healing the underlying causes give Pax Prentiss account of addiction Organic Farming with respect to Cosmic Energy discuss the change in the treatment paradigm that the author was seeking too in his rehab facility and then briefly The Philosopher's Stone A uest for the Secrets of Alchemy discusses the four causes ofependency the author s chosen word for addiction as it lacks the negative meanings of other terms It is at this point where the book turns first when it talks about believing a cure is possible in ways that resemble the sort of false beliefs expressed in The Secret and other similar works and then when the author spends nearly 100 pages talking about what a holistic recovery program looks like with acupuncture therapists Eastern religious specialists a focus on meditation and so on The author presents a false Magic Mushrooms in Religion and Alchemy dilemma between Eastern religious beliefs and practices that supposedly correspond to the way the universe works and a Western model that focuses only onrugs entirely neglecting the reality of sin or the Judeo Christian religious framework The book the. Ependency starts with understanding that alcohol Collapsing Consciously drugs and addictive behaviors are not the real problems say Chris and Pax Prentiss cofounders of Passages Malibu Alcohol streetrugs nicotine prescription medications food bingeing gambling and the like are merely the substances or behaviors you or your loved ones are using to cope with the real problems anything from eep emotional pain ill health or epression to hypoglycemia a sluggish thyroid or brain wave pattern imbalances Once the underlying problems are African Native Literature, or Proverbs, Tales, Fables, Historical Fragments discovered and cured the need forrugs alcohol or addictive behavior will isappear along with the craving Chris Prentiss should know His son Pax was addicted to heroin cocaine and alcohol for ten years They sought help everywhere but Pax relapsed again and again In .the return of those symptoms may cause us so much iscomfort that we ll go
