Manage Substance Use or Addiction
An addiction is not a sign of failure, or weakness, badness, or illness. Rather, it is a natural affiliation for a substance or actifity that satisfies a desire to feel good or not feel bad.
There is nothing wrong with that desire. People drink when they are bored, when they are stressed, and when they are excited. These are times when the mind or soul is least able to be engaged productively. It allows an artificial feeling of comfort in these times of mental disengagement or perhaps feelings of failure. An addiction emerges when that state of mental disengagement comes too often, too deeply, or too easily. Thus, it can be insufficient to just change or repress the behaviour while the feelings of disengagement keep coming. So an alcoholic is no worse nor better than a herion addict, or a shopoholic, or sex addict, or gambler. They are repressing the same undesirable feeling to the same degree of intensity, only through different means. Therefore, the real thrust should be in knowing how to be purposefully engaged mentally so the experience of mental disengagement is reduced naturally and rationally.
Therefore, before we try to remove a readily available distraction, shouldn’t we first seek a better way to get to the underlying condition that so readily leads the person to reach for that distraction?
Prometheum Institute offers a comprehensive life management strategy that can be used to process and manage any of those situations described above. It is based on reason and logic, not doctrine or dogma. It is not therapy. It is a strategy – deep but not abstract. It may seem complex – because life, and the conditions we often fail to manage ARE complex. Our examination must be deep – to understand this complexity. It must be real because abstract ideas pollute our understanding. It is therefore, not therapy. It is a powerful examination of things we are not inclined to examine naturally allowing the exercise to be both enlightening and exhilarating.

Abstract discourses can be tiresome. It may, therefore, be useful to book a live, online or personal discussion with a counsellor associated with us for a reasonable fee. All our counsellors have studied the mental-strength approach we use in these pages. We suggest a fee of $150.00 for a 1.5 hour consultation but your counsellor may adjust this fee to his/her discretion.
