There Will Never Be a (Useful) Addiction Vaccine
By Stanton Peele

"Why won’t those who can’t get high on cocaine simply turn to another substance? I believe they will."

Addcitions are symtoms of something that is wrong in our lives. Addcition always serve and emotinoal purpose.
You can't vacccine adversity on planet earth.

Addictions are behviors expressly used to regain control over emotional states.
Her is how compulsive addictive behavior works with humans. Specific circumstances cause you to feel intolerably helpless, trapped, powereless and lack ing control (emotional state), you regain control with a displaced quick fix or mood changer of drugs. Drugs change the way you feel-your emotional state!

Non addicts with the same or similar circumstances and feelings have learned to regain control with direct healthy behaviors!

If you regain control with a direct healthy behavior that will empower you and there is no addiction!

Both displaced and direct behaviors are methods of regaining control!
The antidote is to learn to regain control of helpless, adverse situation with direct healthy behavior.

JC Principle of Intelligent Delegation and Reciprocal Innervation: Delegate (surrender) control to God (2 Cor. 12: 9-10) and GOD  will reciprocate by empowering you with the Holy Spirit (John 14:16), that will enable you to regain control with direct healthy behavior, with new transformed thinking (Romans 12:2), motivation, purpose and fruits of the Holy Spirit or values (Galatians 5:22-23). (Note self-control is one of those fruits or values!).

Jesus Christ has been teaching behavior therapy for over 2000 years. Christ teaches that in order to regain control over helpless circumstances, delegate control to Christ. Christ will show us the difference between the quick fix or mood changer of displaced behavior and how to regain control of our emotions with direct healthy behavior.
Christ Driven Behavior (CDB), is  a way off this treadmill with renewed thinking (romans 12:2), a life time mentor (John 14:16) and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23).

Quick Navigation:

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 .

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

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!
