I help people reduce the harm of alcohol and drugs in their life by using informal social control.
Throughout history all substances have been controlled at some time.
The only way substances have been controlled throughout history is through informalsocial control
I have taken the methods societies have used throughout history and formulated them into clear instructions that are easy to understand and follow
I wrote the planned book "End and Avoid Addiction" in 1985 while in college.
I later developed the book into clear instructions to help you learn how to use alcohol or any drug correctly without harm..
By using and living these principles and skills you'll be able to easily imitate the success I I have helped others achieve for over 30 years
I have made instructions free for all by embedding instructions into the curriculum page.
*And I will give you my personal observations in each lecture.
