Perhaps you've heard the saying: Don't put the cart before the horse. That's what comes to mind when I read much of the government's spin on addiction, which portrays addiction as a disease of the brain.
Recently I received an email from a gentleman who thoroughly examined the topics in the "Why AYP?" section. Among the many valid points he made, one of them was concerning temporary abstinence vs. permanent renunciation.
Last night I was engaged in some lively discussion with one of my brothers, and we were bouncing back and forth between topics on politics and economics. At one point, I told him that I wished I had a tranquilizer gun to zap him so I could effectively bring his rant to a much-needed halt.
