Effective recovery from addiction begins with motivation based on consequences, pain and loss.

Getting sober and clean because of a desire to get the job back or keep the wife is temporary. Lasting recovery begins with surrender due to a severe beating.

Like alcohol, about 1 in 10 of our kids is going to be a victim of pot addiction.

Our children are suggestible. Look at what has happened with alcohol. Kids drink because the message is that it's ok, it's legal. Conversely, the message with cigarettes is that it's lethal. They know this and fewer are smoking.

Let's protect our kids, not our job security, not our pocket books.

Enabling addiction does tremendous harm, usually unintentionally.

Any attempt at shielding an addict/alcoholic from consequences via drugs or subsidizing the addiction will fail.
