Hi easy to quit just ask me

I quit on my own and it was easy to do.
People tell me that i must not have had a problem, that i am a dry drunk, that I am spiritually corrupt, that i am a liar, that I need to get drunk again and come back through a program. They tell me I am crazy. They say ahh you never had a problem.

Ill say it again.
I quit on my own. It was easy. If you want to know how i did it ask me.

I had my last drink in the early 80s. I raised three kids. They are all professionals and content in life. I have held a job for 40 years. I reached the top of my field and am still working at 56.

I understand addiction and the mind games that surround it.

Recovery for most people can be very easily established and maintained.

Ridicule me if you must but if you want to know what I did ask me.

Why make folks beg? Why not just share it here? Is there something that we have to buy?

I am not selling anything. If you want to know how to do it, you will have to present the real self to me and discuss the process. The key here is the "real self" and shaping the reality within it. It is a simple process to change things around so that the drugs and alcohol cause sufficient conitive dissonance to form a barrier.

For an addict, it is the lack of the drugs and / or alcohol that causes this stress and a wall goes up to block out the true self.

Quitting is about putting up the same wall, but in a different place.

Sounds sufficiently esoteric and vague.

People come here to support each other through what is a difficult and emotionally trying process. The last thing they need is some attention-seeking troll like yourself to come here telling them all you have a magic secret for them. Your posts are in poor taste, and you should seriously consider just going away now.

I have been helping people for 30 years. But what happens is simply this.
When a person decideds they truely want to quit an addiction, that part is easy when the apply themselves to the process. I find that i have helped many go on to very successful lives and to feel and understand the true meaning of relationships and love in their lives. The stop drinking bit is a very minor part of the process once they decide they want to quit.

The other thing is that the internet format is full of lunatics in the addiction help area and they drive me away with constant stupidity and nasty insane acts.

A previous question was, You quit on your own 30 years ago and you take til now to tell us how? The reason is in your statement here REV.

You are closed minded on this and dont want to know fine. Dont decide others must be the same.

When it comes to selling false hope to people who are struggling with self-doubt, and working to rebuild their self-esteem, yeah, I'm kinda closed minded. I don't like people who take advantage of people's emotional pain. Your posts have all the hallmarks of a scam (secret knowledge, vague references, a promise to make something that's very difficult easy, etc.). Selling people something for nothing is ages old, and with all the REAL help these people have given me, I'll be damned if I'll sit by and let you play these games with them.

Hey DBmaniac,

I think you should talk to scoob about the personality disorder cure.

Thanks scoob!
Thanks rev!

The absolute majority of recovered alcoholics on these forums offer their solution with no conditions attached.

If you're not selling anything, then share what worked for you.
Otherwise, you come off as just another shill.

I bet you'll get a few people to agree on that point. I guess that deciding that one wants to quit is not a minor part of the process either, no?

Cryptic, aren't you?

unless you are going to tell people once they've asked you, its a bit like pullling teeth as far as i can see- painful getting an extraction..
i do wish you wouldnt make light out of what for a lot of people is a very painful emotional process - you have yet to say anything of value and thats not really helpful..
wouldnt have replied but it got me a lil bit mad!
