Habit versus Nonproliferation

Pardon my random thoughts. Of which one has been tickling my little grey cells as of late. The idea of intentionally not feeding anything with strict frequency.

A habit is a tradition is a custom. It is the foundation of expectation which is followed by a static outcome. An outcome marked by stasis.

I woke up this morning, took care of the usual and find myself listening to a podcast by Atheists In Recovery. The episode is on food and sugar addiction. BINGO!!! I’m all over that.

You cant control and use. Abstinence makes the hijacking less and less. Your ability to be rational is enhanced by abstinence. The longer you can stay abstinent the more your brain can heal. Addiction is a dopamine resistance.

I am considering disease. Specifically related to biofilms and their points of attachment on the human epithelium and endothelium as they relate to addiction and addictive behaviors. Why do we have addictive behaviors? Are they not simply bio-chemical cues telling us that our [gut-buddies] are waiting patiently for their fare that they have had to adapt to…

Being a constant variant is A WAY of combating disease as is related to microbial overgrowth. A biofilm relies on the norm. On all things remaining the same. What allows a program like A.A. to maintain continued success is that it does not by nature remain the same.

Disease prefers a static host. When you change it sends you a reminder that it does not like change.

The best way to beat an opportunistic pathogen is to remove opportunity.

Be inopportune. Be as random as humanly possible.

what is addiction to me

I had an addiction problem that landed me in daily meetings with like minded people. I met a very serious and robust systemic illness and discovered the source of my true addiction in the sugars I had to give up.

It took 9 months of simple sugar abstinence to fully appreciate what it meant to be sober minded rather than just sober.

My true vice was sugar and alcohol was just the most potent form. But when that became a detriment I switched to Skittles and meetings…8)

And it worked because I was still feeding my muse. Just a slower uptake. Which led me back to where that addiction started and there I was starring at a picture, looking back at my first birthday cake and the ice cream suit I so proudly wore with a smile.

It is unfortunate for sure, but we do this to our kids just as it was introduced to us. And what should be a life of ease becomes one of disease and viola…Alcoholism and over-eating really is a disease. One that we strapped on.
