what he says all sounds good, but what he isn't saying is, in most cases, doesn't work! He states everyone must have full abstinence; first b.s. remark, but probably works for him, and also what is probably best for many cross-addicts. secondly, he states more compassion, altruistic and a loving attitude are sorely needed. Well, helloooooooooooo; that's where we start with the addicts we love. We start with support, compassion, loving attitude; heck, there are many judges in drug court also starting at this "starting point". But you can't continue on that way if the addict won't pitch in. It sounds so wonderful when you say it; what he says is not a revolution; it's a been tried, doesn't work concept. I wish it wasn't.
