Addiction: Imaginary Gains & Real Losses

By Hugh Mann

Addiction is a worldwide mysterious plague that infests every level of society. It baffles and corrupts teachers, doctors, lawyers, police, and politicians. What is addiction, and why is it so powerful and pervasive?

Addiction is a rebellion against metabolism, especially hunger. Unlike a healthy appetite, hunger is a painful, frightening, humbling experience that reminds us of starvation. Metabolism requires food to satisfy hunger and create health. But addiction short-circuits metabolism by replacing food with addictive substances, hunger with euphoria, and health with craving and sickness. So addiction is a flight from hunger to euphoria, with a crash landing in sickness.

Euphoria is a false heightened sense of well-being. Euphoria enables us to control our mood and avoid feelings of inadequacy and loneliness. But euphoria disables our judgment and blinds us to the craving and sickness of addiction. Ironically, addiction makes us feel more alive with euphoria, while it insidiously kills us with craving and sickness. So addiction is a bad bargain, with imaginary gains and real losses.

The most popular addictive substances are sweets, chocolate, cola, tea, coffee, alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. Although some of these substances are considered harmless fun, they all create insatiable cravings that reinforce other addictions. For example, sweets, cola, or coffee reinforce alcohol, tobacco, and drug addiction. So addictive substances are seductive saboteurs that masquerade as familiar friends.

Addiction is big business. The craving of addiction supports the "food" industry. "Food" companies that sell addictive substances spend millions of dollars to advertise the imaginary gains and hide the real losses connected to their products. The sickness of addiction supports the "health care" industry. If alcohol and tobacco were eliminated, many hospitals, insurance companies, and doctors would not have enough patients to stay in business.

Society is dependant on addiction, but you don't have to be. You can reject addiction and choose health. The LOVE DietTM can rescue you from hunger pangs, cravings, highs and lows, and irritability. The LOVE Diet produces a healthy appetite, satiety, energy, stability, and peacefulness. The opposite of the LOVE Diet is the HATE Diet: H represents honey and sweets. A represents alcohol. T represents tobacco. E represents espresso and caffeine. Choose LOVE, not HATE!

Alkalizer The Magravs Energizer & Alkalizer:
“I received the Energizer and Alkalizer about a month ago and have been very impressed in particular, with how it has helped my husband. He suffers from acid reflux and a throat condition. He had developed a persistent cough which was getting worse and worse. He would get up in the morning and retch and cough for some time. I was getting quite concerned. The day after he started drinking the water his cough lessened dramatically. Now he coughs occasionally but not for long and most days he has very little if any, coughing. It is amazing!” ~ Rebecca Friedman
