False Pride is One of my Dominate Temptations of that I confess.
If Staying Sober is what you need to learn today…do not read this article. I have many many other articles on how to stay sober. I have been sober since 2006. That’s 14 years or so. Ten of which I have taken some kind of doctor prescribed non narcotic drug. Be clear I don’t take opiates, that would cause me dysfunctional addiction and horrible consequences.
In this day and age for those saved souls who know Jesus the most important prayer we can say may be “Father, let me NOT be deceived”.
Please watch the video above then read the short story or visa versa.
I want to tell you a story of heartfelt truth. It’s not a made up story but I may use some allegories. Picture a little girl. Little Elior is her name. Little Elior has parents who love her but they know little about emotional nurturing. They don’t know how confidence and self worth are built because, well they have little of their own…they punish by guilting and shaming. They punish by violence. Even the father “spanks” little Elior at a very young innocent age. Naturally little Elior believes if her father hits her she deserves to be hit. And the messages she repeatedly got from school, & parents were that she, not her actions were bad and wrong.

US 6506148 B2 Google that. Why do they say in AA “don’t ask why”. Oh its cause you obsess over things right? Why the phrase “morbid reflection”? If you do look at your past thoroughly you might find Satan, roaming to and fro seeking whom he may destroy. And YOU may have a sacred call on your life that makes you an arch enemy of evil. He knows his time is short. LOOK AT WHAT THE PRETTY PEOPLE DID AND PARROT THAT…..
THIS IS NOT A RECOVERY ARTICLE YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP IT. It is “the problem & causes of addiction” not the solutions.
Self Loathing is by design
What this article really is, is my great awakening catalogued for you to see in plain sight. This is 4 years of research and revelation I give you. It’s very scary and very true. Pray for faith so you can bear it.
NEWS FLASH! Satan IS the ruler of this world and YOU were/are an addict by design. The more abuse you endured in the formative and teen years the more likely your calling from God IS. Were you targeted? Did the voices in your head tell you “your a piece of shit”? The dark side fears you because God will give you POWER & MIGHT if you seek Him.
You are not ultimately responsible for who you were as an addict, or who you have become. But you ARE responsible for learning, & changing.
Sorry folks this article is not based on recovery topics. However its important

Mandela Effect Scripture Change easily adopted as truth is it not?
Sleep on lost sheep sleep on. Perhaps is was Jesus Himself who changed this KJVB scripture from “awaken the time is at hand” to “sleep-on” as if Jesus would encourage blindness and spiritual complacency. As if Jesus would encourage the destruction of a precious soul. For the lost sheep will not awaken until after certain events occur. When they awaken it shall be the final harvest and if repentance is unavailable to a man at that time it shan’t be good.
WARNING! THIS ARTICLE IS A PARADIGM BUSTER. I PRESENT HERE THE CONCEPTS by which recovery & addiction meet full blown truth.
There are Two types of recovery, “Recovery in Truth” or Recovery in partial to full blindness and deception via the “Beast system brand recovery” and its status quos.
Beast system recovery requires ongoing meetings for ever…always an arms length from a drink, never recovered.
Healing recovery requires you become who you really are, no holds barred. How long does this complete healing take? Seven years of reprogramming and virus expulsion by expression of your true inner child. It takes seven years to become who you really are it doesn’t happen overnight.
Don’t have time for long articles? SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR SHORT VERSION SYNOPSIS.
I went to an AA meeting yesterday and clearly see that even though the people there are my brothers and sisters there are many parts of me that are very different than they. I am sober 14 years this month and do not need meetings to stay sober. In spite of popular belief even the Big Book did not say we are dependant on meetings the rest of our lives lest we fall back into addiction. YET most will say if they don’t always continue in meetings they will relapse forthwith.
Praying always in the Spirit our battle is not against flesh and blood. Our enemy is the voice of the dark. That voice can be us or dark mocking spirits who work for the enemy. Or both. AA will help us reprogram our destructive brain that we not mock ourselves or others in word or deed.
First we pray God to KNOW WHEN WE ARE UNDER SPIRITUAL ATTACK. And we learn the difference between our voice and the voice of the enemy by working the 12 steps thoroughly.
You bet your sweet bippy generational curses are real and they can be broken by The Holy Spirit.
Yes we have the debate of nature vs nurture and it is valid as we are formed by BOTH. Nature would be all the genes and hereditary factors that influence who we are—from our physical appearance to our personality characteristics. Therefore “nature” also means generational curses especially I am referring to addiction.
What are the danger signs that I may be embarking into a very SICK RELATIONSHIP?
The real reason for a life long partnership is for HELPMATES to Love and help one another. To relate to one another and show empathy. To bring out the best in one another and allow one another to reach their purpose in life spiritually. If your partner is a hindrance to your goals, dreams, and purpose you may be in a sick relationship.
Quantum Recovery = Recovery that is made faster and easier by spiritual helps. A recovery key of sorts into a realm of higher support team actions that make your overcoming addiction a fact in real time.
God gives us chances on earth to live when death is at hand. He allows us grace periods to see when we are blind. And there are windows of opportunity literal and spiritual that we can feel in our heart of hearts when they appear. For instance, if we were/are an addict in need of deliverance, a window would open in a 24 hour period in which if we made the right choice sobriety would come much easier and roll out like a magic red carpet even though the processes of recovery are very long and emotionally treacherous. With the right people at the right time we learn. Our choice would present a momentum toward good and healing
My Experience and Opinions for reasons people become addicts do not negate the need to do 12 step work, get a sponsor, and make amends etc to recover..
There is a valid reason you do not want to feel
If you ended up in the psych ward due to some antics you engaged in because of addiction or alcoholism then it’s time. Are you done? There is a reason that you feel better when your numb. There is a reason that you are uncomfortable in your own skin. As a matter of fact…since I have been sober over 14 years this time I have learned exactly the precise and many varied reasons I was uncomfortable and down right ashamed in my own skin.
So many times, during the first two years of recovery I felt as if I was somehow doing something wrong in my recovery or that something was not right with my progress. I used to feel like my feelings themselves where wrong. Especially if I were sad or fearful, on the edge of depression or angry. I was fortunate to have effective group therapy which when combined with Alcoholics Anonymous kept me and several of my rehab-mates sober for a very long time. We all had sexual abuse in our past and took our addiction to places we were ashamed of. But I learned THERE IS NO WRONG FEELING, EVER. THEY ALL COME FROM A VALID PLACE AND ARE THERE FOR A VALID REASON. We don’t allow our feelings to rule us but intense feelings should be processed.
How Newly Recovering Addicts and Alcoholics can start a whole new career via Etsy Seller.
First I have to say, Etsy, Amazon, and eBay protect their buyers from being ripped off just like eBay or Amazon would, if not more so. But also, none of these selling platforms won’t ask you for your work history or your criminal history. If you are responsible, and can be relied upon for respectful communication and treatment of customers and you sell a good hand made product, they WILL give you a chance to excel in their seller platform. If you show yourself unreliable and customer unfriendly, well then you should not be in sales anyway and you would not grow in Etsy seller.
All you need to start is a product and a Paypal or bank account for the sales to flow into.
Common Scenario of a sober recovering addict
Your clean and sober but no one will hire you locally because you have a criminal record. You have changed your ways, buy no one sees that. All they see is the fact that you stole a candy bar in 2015 and went to jail. You were drunk at the time and have recently gone to Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. You got a year probation and NOBODY will hire you even though your more honest now than you have EVER BEEN. All your AA sponsor can say is “expect distrust you have earned it!” UHG!
Well guess what? Online work may be right up your ally. Not to mention sober recovering addicts tend to be very creative. All we need do is practice our step eleven meditation, use our imagination, find our artistic flare and start creating something people want or need. Then we put our products or art on a listing in Etsy Seller and be patient for the sales to start happening.
Don’t quit before the miracle happens. It took me a good year to start making money on Etsy. In the mean time I settled for an eBay and Amazon seller account which, just didn’t make the grade compared to Etsy systems and software. Amazon and eBay started with a bang and fizzled out with a soft cry, while my Etsy store did a slow-grow-dance, the system testing my business along the way, as it flowered into a thriving burst of colorful energy painted with authentic handmade jewelry and outfits galore, with a steady income to boot.
Which in turn helps you recognize patterns of behavior and threats of relapse.
Know your enemy. Know your addict….know yourself. Love your enemy, Love your addict, Love yourself.
Addiction Cunning & Baffling Indeed
THE BAFFLING PART OF ADDICTION EXPLAINED. How does an emotional pain morph into spiritual blindness and darkness that would cause a man to self destruct?
Clearing up the EMOTIONAL wreckage of the past makes us less vulnerable to actions of fear and hurt toward self and others. Confessing our greatest fear(s) DOES render them powerless over us. In this sense we ARE as sick as our secrets. Shame is the leverage of darkness. Yet “shame” is something humans seldom want to explore within themselves to irrigate it with light. Why?
Because we are taught to never allow ourselves to be vulnerable. The deception is that if we expose our fear to the light people will use it against us. However it’s not the people that we need to be concerned with when it comes to fear. But rather the leverage of spiritual darkness in high places who exploit unconfessed shame. Every fourth step should include a shame and fear list that needs spoken out loud. The fear list should be repeated until it becomes a way of life to expose shame and fear to the light.

Addiction is not a Disease, but rather it is a spiritual malady and force of habit. It is a poor self image and the presence of a broken heart. Our heart can be healed and our habits can be changes. We won’t relapse if we take the time to respect ourselves enough to realize not only did we hurt others but others hurt us deeply. The certainly taught us as children that we were inferior and bad. So we spent the rest of our days trying to prove that it wasn’t true while our own hearts believed that it was.
Disclaimer: This article holds nothing back. It is not a blame game but rather has identified common reasons for addiction. Taking responsibility for our healing and recovery is still imperative to our emotional health. But for those who do find addiction “cunning and baffling” this explains common causes. If you want solutions they are all over this website but clearly this article is not solution oriented.

We Addicts have been conditioned to demoralize one another.
Bill W. scribed the term to us “pitiful and incomprehensible demoralization”.
Oh Mr. Wilson! Yea for art thou a colorful writer to stretch your mind around such an appropriate and relate-able term as “Pitiful and Incomprehensible Demoralization”. Oh how you must have suffered to feel these heinous words rushing through your blood and soul!
Suboxone Creator’s Shocking Scheme to Profit Off of Heroin Addicts
The company behind America’s most popular drug to treat addicts actually claimed its pills could kill kids to get a new patent and $1 billion.
Reckitt Benckiser’s patent for its opiate-treatment drug Suboxone expired, opening the gates for cheaper generic versions of the medication to hit the market. At stake was the loss of the company’s 85 percent hold on the market for medication-assisted treatment, which was booming thanks to the growing opiate epidemic. Hundreds of millions stood to be lost from the patent’s expiration.
