Maybe she will find sobriety in her 30 days and maybe a new lease on life.


The twelve steps (by Russell Brand)

1. Are you **** ed?

2. Could you not be **** ed?

3. Are you, on your own, going to "unfuck" yourself?

4. Write down all the things that are **** ing you up or have ever **** ed you up and donít lie, or leave anything out.

5. Honestly tell someone trustworthy about how **** ed you are.

6. Well thatís revealed a lot of **** ed up patterns. Do you want to stop it? Seriously?

7. Are you willing to live in a new way thatís not all about you and your previous, **** ed up stuff? You have to.

8. Prepare to apologize to everyone for everything affected by your being so **** ed up.

9. Now apologize. Unless that would make things worse.

10. Watch out for **** ed up thinking and behaviour and be honest when it happens.

11. Stay connected to your new perspective.

12. Look at life less selfishly, be nice to everyone, help people if you can.


For anyone who wants to fix their lives and or distorted reactions to stuff, Albert Ellis, Rational Emotive Thinking can help those people do it. It can help you see where your thinking/beliefs are distorted, once you fix those, life gets easier, less stressful. Become self-actualized, and if you don't now what that means, find out and improve your life.

Interesting, strange that a person like yourself, who is obsessed with God and religion, would recommend Ellis who is a stone rationalist atheist, a cornerstone of his philosophy being that religion is comparable to mental disorder.

The opening sentence of his essay "THE CASE AGAINST RELIGIOSITY" pretty much sums up his view:

"This article will try to make a succinct and cogent case for the proposition that unbelief, skepticism, and thoroughgoing Atheism not only abet but are practically synonymous with mental health; and that devout belief, dogmatism, and religiousity distinctly contribute to and in some ways are equal to mental or emotional disturbance."

You are a very conflicted personality.

I guess I don't understand why people have to be put into a "box". You can take away what you want and leave the rest. Just because you may not entirely believe everything someone says doesn't mean that you can't agree with them on other things.

Really, we should all be looking for common ground, not our differences. It shows maturity when you can do that.

I applaud this post.

Nail on head. Head on nail,

A problem is people buying into pre-laid out schools of thought. Valid ideas exist in both Liberal and Conservative philosophies. Buying into company line politics eliminates one from free thinking. This is one of the reasons I don't discuss politics typically. I am such a mix of conservative, middle of the road, and liberal opinions that no preset ideologist ever agrees with me, or me them. Once people put labels on themselves, they are doomed IMO. Think for oneself, it works.

As for thread topic, I hope regardless of perceived severity, she sees this as a later in life teaching and the future holds more sane choices. Yes, she is lucky, and one should spin luck wisely.

More Gun laws! More tests! More screenings!

LOL.....

Ask yourself this question..."would I ever threaten anyone with a gun"?

How did you get this gun? Were you moments away from actually pulling the trigger? Isn't this type of behavior the core of the problem? I guess we should reward her for her "willpower"....lol. If we went after this kind of crime like we pursue drug users, jails would be full with people showing this type of propensity towards gun violence.

30 days is getting off easy.
