Each time that I resume an occasional drink, over the following months I gradually increase my intake to unhealthy levels and I have a very difficult time. It is impossible to decrease the frequencies or amount, and it is barely manageable to totally abstain but eventually I do.

Dr Joe, referring to other disease/conditions, implies anything is possible with total belief and unfailing meditation routine. The disconnect comes in  that imbibing causes me to ignore both.

I feel I am correct to not play with dynamite, after all I see no point in other dangerous activities from Dr Joe examples such as ingesting glass or drinking strychnine.

Still... I was wondering if I was lacking an ability of total belief. Though on the other hand I am doing what it takes to focus my intent and commit to meditation.

I guess I’m wanting to justify my abstinence in case someone challenges my lack of control. I am planning to attend a week long event eventually and  it appears wine is encouraged there. It would be true to say that I don’t care for wine: I don’t care for the consequences... but I  sure do love it’s immediate affects.

Thanks so much for you opinions and advice.

Excellent topic WiB, I wonder why no one has commented?!?!

People suffer from alcoholism, smoking & substance abuse and they want to be cured, get rid of this garbage that keeps them prisoners without any control of their lives.

With all due respect I know people suffer from illnesses & diseases and they find comfort and a glimpse of hope that they too will -like others following Dr Joe- be cured. Their belief is straightened by so many testimonies and this is the first step to recovery.

I would like to see Dr Joe address these (very) common issues as well because they are a big problem in our society. Before someone damages their liver with alcohol or their lungs with smoking it would be great to have a chance at curing these addictions before becoming illnesses.

I guess what I'm saying is I would like a meditation on addictions alone.

I would love to hear your comments.

Warm Regards,
