Before I join the soup here:

Is this entire discussion mainly drushos l'hagdil Torah like discussing ben sorer umoreh (which may be a great mitzvah)...anybody willing to openly admit if this is their interest here, please?

...or is there anybody here who will come forward and admit that they are actually trying to better apply these ideas to work with an addict/themselves?

Thanks for your openness and honesty, either way.

I certainly do not belong to the former; perhaps, by some mistake, I can be included in the latter.

#1. That’s not my interest. 
#2. No I’m not actively working on myself. I’m in a good place these past weeks, but not fully. Unmanageable life is what I feel often almost at the brink of, although BH generally I’m able to keep the distance.

People are different. 
Some are addicts some aren’t but there’s a broad line in between. 

Before you join the soup, remember that there’s a whole variety of soup being offered. Chicken soup, vegetable soup etc etc

#1 It is my interest, I do like a good discussion, however I do prefer if... (See number 2)

#2 The answer/explanation will not just be theoretical in nature ( this is an addict, this is not an addict...) But rather of practical ideas and thoughts what to do if one is one or other.

Yeah. 

GIBBOR WITH THE DUMBELLS, WE NEED SOME NEW HEAVY WEIGHT DOV POSTS!

Are you in a red zone that closed the gyms?  Well then you should sue, because this is definitely an essential service and they have no right.

Thanks so much. Becausevof this material, I've had the privilege of speaking to 4-5 new guys a week by phone, through GYE or SA connections. People call because writing back and forth behind usernames just doesn't cut it for people with a serious problem. Since I'm an addict in recovery, I understand and have no shame about being honest with another serious person and bH there are many.

So if anybody enjoys this thread and thinks they might benefit from discussing their own situation in light of anything mentioned here, you are welcome to call me at 917-414-8205

Hatzlocha and have a good day!

Dov
