Thanks for the update. I'm not sure if I've read this one or not. The things that you mentioned -- I must have picked those up somewhere, in a meeting, or literature, etc., because I've been known to suggest the same things.
I believe a lot of people suffer needlessly -- when medications could be a valuable resource that they could benefit from. And, of course -- there are those that don't need them, that take them simply for the side effects of how good they feel. My view is: if you're hurting and your life is suffering and something out there can help you, by all means, check it out and find out if it's right for you. My motivation for sobriety is: A. It feels good (now that I've done the work). And, B. It continually improves the quality of my life. If it didn't do those things -- I'd probably be drinking.
Thanks for sharing the info. I'll see if I can get a version of the pamphlet and post it here on the site. It might already be here, and maybe that's where I read it.
