life is tough.  You do not survive it.  you do not master it. you learn to master yourself in it!

the human being is not just a sophisticated animal with greater instincts.  We think!  We create logical actions based on more than reactive observations.  Our real strength is in our capacity to think, not remember or be conditioned.

When the power of thought is positively nurtured, it gives rise to multiple options, pleasurable options.

When it is not nurtured,

When it is neurotically focused on a singular or specific interest,

When it is permissively discouraged

we are left with limited options and the vulnerability to embrace tenaciously that which seems easy, available, and apparently powerful.

Then it can be so tempting to:

use alcohol, prescribed or designer drugs, or other activities that detach the reality or soothe the pain of facing it

These are all addictive behaviors.  They are not illnesses.  They are the destructive effect of too limited choices

You can remove or replace them, not by forcing restraint, but by giving yourself more and better choices.  You WILL still use these options.  Everybody does.  You just will use them less or not at all because you have better choices.
