No,  your son isn’t necessarily on the fast road to failure if you find a stash of pot in his closet. “For most young people, recreational cannabis use is essentially harmless, a rite of passage ending as young people settle into careers and adult intimate relationships,” writes (link is external) Mayo Clinic psychiatrist Michael Bostwick. “For 10 percent, however, the drug becomes addictive, its relaxing properties transforming into a constant need that interferes with interpersonal and occupational advancement.”

Pot is better than the most common other drugs. The chances of becoming “hooked” on nicotine are 32 percent and, to alcohol, 15 percent.  Drinking alcohol at parties isn't better than smoking pot: alcohol is not only more addictive but, especially in large binges, is clearly damaging to the teen brain.

The truth is that your kids should stay away from pot, alcohol and cigarettes. If your teen finds pot helps her function, she needs to know that over time it's likely to make her problems worse.

Compulsive pot smoking always serves an emotional purpose. People don't abuse substances unless it does something for them. The real question is why do you smoke? Is it a quick fix or mood changer for escaping the adversity of normal life? Do you regain control of how you feel or want to feel, with drugs? Overcoming addiction is not rocket science. Regain control of your feelings, empower yourself with healthy direct behaviors that are of high value to you, not displaced quick fixes or mood changer of drugs and booze.

Change your thinking and change your life. (Don’t conform, transform!)
When your values trump your addiction, there is no addiction.

Spread the empirical evidence of direct- empowering Christ Driven Behavior (CDB), while discouraging the dissemination of myth, hysteria and hype.

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
