Re: The Science and Theory of Addiction
A good yard stick about addiction is to define when the addictive behaviour becomes a problem for the person.

I've known people (myself included) who would smoke weed every day for years and have a job and family and a good life. I know full well that at a time in my life if somebody had asked me to quit weed I would have laughed at them.

My take on things is that if one's behaviour does not affect their quality of life (however that's defined) then even though they may not be able to stop (at that time in their life) then there is not much of a problem: certainly not a treatable problem.


The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

The explain to them any scientific investigation that explains the existence of things qualifies as science and as an explanation

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.

Re: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Not formally but in essence that sums up a lot of the cognitive side of CBT.

Re: Day 113 and i'm neurotic
While I don't teach mindfulness myself but my close colleagues do and it is very effective at managing problem thoughts (which include thoughts of engaging in addictive behaviour).

Stick with it. As you you practice you get better at it and it's more effective. As an aside it appears that not only can you build willpower by exercising it, it also generalises. So if you exercise willpower to not eat sweets you are also building willpower resist other impulses.

Keep up the good work, mate!
