Fitting In Vs. Being Fit
You know, lots of folks thought the world was flat.
But some folks were smart enough to know it was round.
(And brave enough to stand up and say so.)
Some folks think religion is a great idea.
But some folks see it for the cancer it is, causing far
more harm than good.
Lots of folks are hooked into believing the disease model
of alcohol and drug addiction.
They want you to Believe that "Being and Alcoholic"
(or an "Addict") is not just A part of you, but that it IS
you, on a cellular, spiritual, unavoidable level.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Yes, alcohol has a physical addiction component.
But it is not Your Identity. It is not a demon that has
control over you. You are not powerless.
All of that outdated fairy tale hogwash is the most
unscientific, dangerously voodoo crap that the modern
world has ever heard...and yet people have fallen for it.
And now it is such a Monster of a Culture, that those
who know better are afraid to speak up, for fear of
being squashed by the bullying majority with their
intimidation and spin control.
Don't be intimidated.
If you know the truth, don't let the Monolith that is
12 Step force feed you a glass of fear and loathing.
Love yourself and Reason enough to stand against
the lies. Your well being--and others'--depends on it.
