What the 12-step programs have known for 70+ years is now proven!

Mavis Humes-Baird www.recoverysense.com tells us:

12-Step wisdom cautions that relapse can only occur when opportunity and desire meet. That wisdom therefore suggests “Stay away from People, Places and Things,” to minimize your opportunities. Now, a scientific study shows that doing so not only minimizes the opportunity to relapse, but your desire as well. There is a long list of other program tools for minimizing the desire to relapse. Of course, minimizing and replacing both the desire and the opportunity as much as you can is still a big part of what recovery is all about!

The other program wisdom upheld by this study is the need for surrender. The phrase from the AA Big Book, “No amount of human willpower could have relieved our alcoholism” comes to mind. And another goes, “So far as alcohol was concerned, confidence was overrated…..”

Gay or Not Gay?

Do you think it’s beneficial for some people to reject their gay or lesbian attractions?  In an article entitled “A New Therapy on Faith and Sexual Identity” in the Wall Street Journal, The American Psychological Association says that it can be.  When people are tormented by their sexual orientation because it conflicts with their religious beliefs, changing their sexual compass may bring them relief.

This is not meant to be the old “conversion therapy” that “cures” people out of their homosexuality but will certainly create controversy nonetheless.

The Female Brain

If you are female and want to know more about how you tick, if you have a female child, or if you are in relationship with a female I HIGHLY recommend you read “The Female Brain” by Louann Brizendine, M.D.

Dr. Brizendine simply and clearly lays out the differences between the male and female brains and makes it easy to understand.  She finally lays to rest the argument about nature vs. nuture and gives scientific evidence for why women are the way they are – versus just being from “Venus.”
