    Brian -
    just be honest...don't say what isn't true to appease us or anyone else...speak your truth....only way you're gonna get well.

    Your assumptions about meetings are incorrect. The meetings I attend we do not sit around and talk about drugs/alcohol. We don't live in the problem, we discuss the solution. In Jersey, NA does tend to live in the problem, which is why I've gravitated to AA...and found the solution there.

    AA gave me the impetus to pursue all kinds of spiritual recovery. You mention meditation...fantastic. Perhaps there's a zendo or something else near you where you can sit with other like-minded folks. just google 'zendo' and your zip....see what pops.

    and yes....muscle relaxers are habit forming.

    peace

    Glad you are doing well Brian....awesome. I kicked a similar habit with huge OXy numbers...I had quite a few other daily drugs in the mix as well...A total mess of a man I was.
    I want to echo what Janice said. If you have not been to and thru many meetings you definitley do not know what it is all about. I can't remember the last meeting where drugs were brought up. I go to AA, plenty of drug addicts in AA. I am in NJ and again to agree with Janice..the AA recovery is MUCH STRONGER. The entire purpose of the AA program and steps is to " have a psychic change" that comes thru a " Spiritual awakening" that agenda sounds like someting that would interest you based on your post. Try not to judge, or forecast what you think its all about. So many people don't EVER try the program cuz of pre conceived notions. Man, AA, willingness to participate is one of the greatest things that ever occurred in my life..It wasn't GREAT right away..took a while for me to sober up and have ANY patience at all..Now that I am her,e, love those meetings man. I help others, I get helped..I make friends, there is an awesome community there of people from every walk of life......I am socially enriched by going to the meetings...and...I am sober!! HA!!!
    Not using drugs is in fact clean..However, true addicts will be mentally and spiritually sick without even using at all. Definitley was the case for me. I was restless, irritable and discontent with or without drugs. AA has set me free. I don't thump the book cuz I don't have to. I am living proof that it works, makes my quality of life immeasurably better!!!
    WERD!

    Hi brian. How goes it?

    Just on that point of chromosome numbers... All homo-sapiens have 23 chromosomes, no matter the race or lineage.

    When it comes to evolution, it's best to think about it in terms of "most fitted to the environment", as opposed to a notion of "higher and higher states of evolutionary perfection". To do so is to miss the point of evolution.

    Take the humble cockroach, for example. It's lifespan is a fraction of ours. It breeds at a prodigious rate, with hundreds of generations for our one. And it's been around for longer than us. Essentially, that makes it a "more highly evolved creature than humans".

    We are in constant flux, as is our environment. There is no evolutionary omega point. There is however, a beautiful evolutionary dance. An ancient, powerful, and eternal struggle between life and death. Between a life form and it's environment. Adaptation. You can see it everywhere you look.

    For me, technology will always be a double edged sword. I think you're right in that reliance on tech to "do our thinking for us" can dull our collective minds. But things like communications tech can also bring us together with shades of the metaphysical. Tech is in itself, an adaptation. It's part of the balance, part of the dance. It comes from our dreams, and it comes from the earth too. It's made of the same stuff, it represents our struggle. Some even say it's a part of us - a defining part.

    Anyway, that's my 2c. Take it or leave it. :)

    peace.

    As for the Aboriginal thing, even though the Aboriginals are the traditional land owners of Australia, the true Aboriginal see 's himself as the spiritual custodian owner of the land !


    They have a spiritual harmonic relationship with their land and environment, that gives them that sense of well being, in tune with their harmonic state, if you like !


    Thats why a lot of indigenous Australians, have huge issues when they have to deal with life in the Big smoke, there is just not that serenity in city's
