Statement from the site: “After eighteen months of sobriety, he thought he could experiment with alcohol. He drank at a party and took a half of a tab of Ecstasy, then he went into a coma and was buried a day and a half later.”
Do not forget this may have been suicide
Look at these two experiences:
A man from a very wealthy family went to Switzerland in 1931 to get treatment from the notable psychiatrist, Carl Jung. He spent an entire summer with the Doctor. Trying to formulate a manner of living that would not include alcohol. He left the good doctor and headed home on a cruise ship. Sad to say he was drinking while on the ship, before reaching harbor in USA. He returned to Dr. Carl Jung. This is a rendition of what was said: The doctor said: “You have the mind of a chronic alcoholic. I have never seen one single case recover, where that state of mind existed to the extent that it does in you.” Our friend felt as though the gates of hell had closed on him with a clang.
He said to the doctor, “Is there no exception?”
“Yes,” replied the doctor, “there is. Exceptions to cases such as yours have been occurring since early times. Here and there, once in a while, alcoholics have had what are called vital spiritual experiences. To me these occurrences are phenomena. They appear to be in the nature of huge emotional displacements and rearrangements. Ideas, emotions, and attitudes which were once the guiding forces of the lives of these men are suddenly cast to one side, and a completely new set of conceptions and
motives begin to dominate them. In fact, I have been trying to produce some such emotional rearrangement within you. With many individuals the methods which I employed are successful, but I have never been successful with an alcoholic of your description.”
Roll the clock forward to January 1976 in Minneapolis MN, a psychiatrist of German decent told me the same thing.
When our minds come to the point as these two very well known psychiatrist and come to know that we are powerless over this addiction, No prohibition, no education, no laws, nor guns will heal anyone that has my illness nor the one of Rowland Hazzard, the man above. Nor will it keep anyone one from becoming afflicted with this illness. The first step is we know nothing.
Studying drugs to end addiction is the same as studying concentrated sweets to end diabetes.
Why would I send money for this venture? I will for sure send my sincere condolences
