I’m not angry.
I’m passionate 🙂
I’m passionate about truth.
I’m passionate about believe.
I’m passionate about ignoring lies.
I’m passionate about showing others
what God showed me.
That being said, have you ever heard of TSM? The Sinclair Method (TSM)
They say, “TSM is a treatment for alcohol use disorder (AUD) that uses an opiate blocker to reduce or eliminate a person’s craving for alcohol. It’s time to change the things we can no longer accept, using science and medicine to treat alcohol use disorder.”
Let’s address a few pieces from their paragraph above:
First, treat a drug with a drug?
Second, the “craving” is the issue?
Third, what are people “accepting”?
Fourth, use science and medicine?
TSM vaguely reminds me of what I’ll make up and coin as TSP – “The Pharmacy Method.” Have you ever noticed how most people who go to the pharmacy are overweight? Now, don’t get offended if you are overweight because I’m trying to make a point about the pharmacy. Think about it; why are most pharmacies inside of a grocery store? Why do you have to walk through the land of junk food to get to the pharmacy at Walgreens? Why don’t you ever see a pharmacy inside of a flower shop?
Once the little boy sticks his finger into the alcohol hole in the dam of life, what will be the next hole that springs a leak? Meaning, once alcohol is “eliminated,” what drug will the little boy turn to now that his house is clean?
So, back to TSM. Why are we treating the problem with another problem as opposed to filling the void? As a wise man once said, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”
Maybe TSM should be “The Secondary Method”.
Primary: choose believe!
You don’t NEED a group. Groups don’t save lives. All you need to do is the very thing that Jesus said over and over again. I challenge you to follow the teachings of Jesus as opposed to the plans and programs of man.
