“Good to see the regular folks on his show. We resonate with our peers, not with celebrities. BTW there are solutions for recovery, the problem is that most addicts don't like the solution. "You can lead the horse to water, but you can't make him drink." Some horses get really, really thirsty before they drink some don't make it to the next watering hole and die. Next time you see water—drink. I did.

“Agree wholeheartedly and I am a recovered addict. You can dress it up all you want -- recovery is recovery and we need to take responsibility. My recovery is my choice. Most know there is a solution, they just don't like "the solution" ... the solution is the solution. Too bad if you don't like it. Comfort is far overrated in our culture.”

“Lisa, I'm in recovery too, and I couldn't disagree more with the person who you responded to. He is not referring to recovery, he is referring to people trying alcohol for the very first time - something a majority of people do. He's not talking about recovery.”

“Brilliant. A truly inspiring piece. We have been deeply ingrained with dysfunctional thinking/behavior. It's refreshing to read the facts. My book covers addiction to alcohol and how the mind has us trapped to stay addicted. I cover what is required, from a scientific perspective, to get clean and live life fully engaged and responsibly. I am so grateful for people like you who have fearlessly (at least it appears fearless) educated those of us that couldn't figure out why we couldn't figure it out.

“Human beings develop an "addictive physiology, not an addictive mind set". We continue to foster the addictive personality concept. The body adapts to those things we become addictive to, not our mental capacity.”
