SCIENCE OF ADDICTION

While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them.

>STEP I: AVOID THE THOUGHT OF IT THE VERY MOMENT IT COMES TO YOUR MIND. THINK OF ANYTHING ENTIRELY UNRELATED.

Funny part is: Senses hate each other; tongue has no business to do with how melodious something sounds; ears have no business to do with

how beautiful something looks—THEY JUST PLAY WITH YOU like a toy, FIGHT THEM.

? From such attachment lust develops, and when lust is not fulfilled, anger arises. From anger, complete delusion arises.

>STEP II: LUST (FOR SUBSTANCES OR ANYTHING) IN YOUR BODY LIVES IN THE BODY PART THROUGH WHICH YOU CONSUME THEM,

IN MIND AND IN BRAIN SENSORS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TEMPORARY PLEASURE IT FEELS BY CONSUMPTION OF SUBSTANCES OR

BY FULFILLING THE LUST.

ENGAGE THE CONCERNED BODY PARTS IN SOME SUBSTITUTE ACTIVITY.

DIVERT YOUR MIND TO SOMETHING ELSE YOU LOVE EQUAL TO OR MORE THAN THE SUBSTANCES (Cigarettes or alcohol)—I BET YOU

MUST BE HAVING ONE THING YOU LOVE MORE THAN THE DIRTY SUBSTANCES.

REMIND YOUR BRAIN THAT YOU LOST TO THIS LAST TIME WHEN YOU TRIES AS WELL AS ALL THE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT

HEALTH/ECONOMIC/SOCIAL HAZARD IT HAS BROUGH OR CAN BRING TO YOU.

From delusion, arises bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost. When intelligence is lost, one falls down again

into the material pool.


>STEP III: FIGHT THE DELUSION, FIGHT FOR SAKE OF YOUR INTELLIGENCE, WITH ABOVE TWO STEPS.

ISOLATE YOURSELF TO SOME PLACE WHERE DIRTY SUBSTANCES ARE NOT CONSUMED (CAN EVEN BE SIMPLY A PUBLIC PLACE).

CONSTANTLY PEDAL YOUR MIND TO CYCLE THESE THREE STEPS WHNEVER THERE IS A SURGE OR CRAVING.

I — II — III ----- I — II — III ----- I — II — III ----- I — II — III ----- I — II — III
