That is obviously rhetorical, in that that subject has been covered in this and related threads. This model explicitly states that addiction is nonexistent and therefore is in no way a method for cessation of a non entity.
My question is why the mods allow its discussion and consequent promotion on a site intended to promote abstinence.
It doesn't say addiction is non-existent - all three authors suffered from addiction for many years and have helped many overcome it, including myself. It says it is a mindset created by beliefs about addiction. I can certainly relate to that view.

I suggest it would be more proper to take up your issue with a PM to the mods. rather than publicly on this thread.
