Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this course only for people who struggle with addiction?
A: While this course was primarily written for people who struggle with addiction other people can benefit from taking this course such as family members who are worried about a love one or substance abuse counselors who want more knowledge and insight on addiction and recovery
Q: How is it possible to recover from an addiction online? Don't I need a 12-step program or in-patient rehab?
A: 12 step programs are outdated and their success rates are shockingly low. Not everyone is cut out for rehab and can just leave their family, friends, kids, pets, work, school, etc. The material in this course will give you the tools you need to be successful in fighting an addiction, however, you will need to find the motivation within so you can apply the concepts you will learn.

This course is comprised of different sections and include all aspects of our Sobriety Success Method.
First we’ll talk all about getting started. In this section we’ll talk about current statistics, health related problems, taking inventory, getting rid of triggers, detox, and your quit day.
The next section is all about your physical health and in that section we’ll talk about nutrition, fitness and sleep.
Then we’ll talk about your psychological health and in that section we’ll talk about your mental health, spiritual health and how to regain your confidence with intentional living.
After that we dive into your social health. We’ll talk about your family, friends and professional relationships.
Last we’ll wrap up by talking about how to manage your triggers and talking about post acute withdrawal syndrome. With that being said, let’s jump right in to talk a little about the history of cocaine.
Coca is one the most oldest drugs in history. When first discovered by the Andes, it was used for religious purposes. In the 1500s the Spanish invaded Peru and started to force Indian laborers to use it so they could more productive in the mines.
In 1859 Cocaine was extracted from coca leaves by a german chemist and it started to gain popularity in the medical community in the late 1800s. Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud used the drug and would prescribe it as a cure for depression and other psychological ailments for his close inner circle. He started to note that his friends would get paranoid hallucinations and some of his patients even died as a result of taking too much.
According to the National institute on drug abuse Cocaine is the second most trafficked drug in the world. I’m going to give you a quick rundown of some current cocaine statistics. All of the resources are cited and there are links you can view if you want further information.
When you use cocaine the reward pathway to your brain is activated and over constant use that reward pathway becomes less sensitive to other things that once brought you pleasure.
You’ve probably noticed that things that used to make you happy or feel good - don’t actually make you feel happy or good anymore such as eating a nice meal, watching a good movie, snuggling up with your significant other. That is - when you’re not on cocaine. When you’re high on cocaine - everything feels okay but never like it used to when you first started.
Welcome to section two. In this section I will have you take inventory of your current use and then we’ll focus on setting up your quit date.We’re going to talk about getting rid of triggers, how to detox and what to do on your first day. Let’s get started.
Taking inventory the place you want to start when making the decision to tackle any addiction. Taking inventory consists of two parts: time and money.
To do this: if you’re still using cocaine you’ll need some way to track your use - pen and paper, your phone, etc. If you’re not still using cocaine then you can go off memory.
As you track your use, there are two things to track: how much time you spend every day not in your right mindspace and how much money you spend every day on cocaine.
Now that you’re thinking about the future and how this will all work out, it’s time to start thinking about your quit date. You see with a cocaine addiction you will need at least 7 days to fully detox. Think about detox, which we will talk more about in a later lecture, like a flu or an illness. The first 3 days, being the worst with possible remorse or depression. YOu may have a really hard time adjusting your sleep patterns too. It’s not uncommon for the body to try and play catch up and you may find yourself sleeping for long periods of time during these first few days. And then it will take a few days to just feel functional.
As you get ready to quit cocaine forever, it’s important to fully prepare yourself for all possibilities. Many of my students have stated that in the past they felt like they were prepared but as they started to progress in their recovery, they realized they weren’t prepared at all. So let’s talk about how organize your living space to reduce the likeliness of having a trigger.
This isn’t to say it’s going to be a walk in the park and you’ll never be triggered - I’ll talk about what to do if you do get triggered a little later on in the course but this is just to help you so that you’ll have a better chance by not having as many triggers as you would had you not prepared.
So you’ve set your quit date and you know how to get rid of triggers by changing up your environment. I want to talk to you first about what to expect during detox and in the next lecture I’ll talk about what to do on your first day.
Detoxing from cocaine is hard and I want you to know that it takes so much strength and courage just to make the decision to do this - if you’re here then I know you can work through it.
Prepare to detox for about a week. The very first day won’t seem so bad but the next couple of days after will be the worst. The most common side effect that we hear is having remorse - just feeling bad and starting to second guess your decision to do this. Just know that this is a normal feeling and it will pass.
Okay so your first day - the day you take the plunge - it’s exciting because you know your life is changing but on the other hand you might be a bit nervous about what to expect. We talked in the last section about detox and chances are you won’t feel a lot of symptoms right on your first day. So this is a perfect opportunity to work through some more lectures and be as productive as possible.
That’s it for this section. We talked about setting your quit date, getting rid or triggers, how to go through detox and what to do on your first day! I hope you’re excited to continue on. We’ve got a lot more to talk about for you to be able to kick your addiction for good. I’ll see you in the next section.
The way you treat your body while fighting an addiction can be critical in your ability to reduce triggers and how you manage your withdrawals. In this section we're going to dive deep into nutrition, Fitness, and sleep. Not only are we going to talk about why your physical body needs to be taken care of but I am going to give you some solid actionable items you can start doing right now to get yourself on the healthy body bandwagon. Let's get started.
When you are addicted to Cocaine it's likely you haven't been eating right. When you're high on Cocaine you're not hungry and don't eat but when you come down you're starving and more than likely eat a lot to make up for what you weren't getting when you were high.On top of not eating the right portions at the right time it's likely you haven't been paying close attention to the quality of food you're getting either. Let's talk about both those things.
The reason you need to pay close attention to your food is because when you're fighting an addiction like this you can't just quit and eat crappy food and expect to feel good - what you put into your body makes a huge impact on how fast and well you will beat this addiction.
Now you’re thinking about ways to improve your nutrition. Another piece to this pie is your fitness. Now this isn’t a weight loss - let’s see results type of lecture. This is aimed purely for those who are struggling with a cocaine addiction - a way to get your body to a healthy and normal state.
If you’re already pretty active then you’ll just need to make sure you’re active enough and doing the right types of physical activity. If you’re not very active or don't’ currently exercise at all, don't’ worry, that’s normal, especially when dealing with a cocaine addiction.
Sleep is often the hardest thing to get under control when dealing with a cocaine addiction. Given the circumstances, it’s understandable to feel like you’re all over the place - maybe sleeping too much during the day, not sleeping well at night, getting too much or too little sleep. Let’s talk about how you can get a better night’s sleep.
That’s it for this section - we talked all about your physical health.
You should be planning and thinking seriously about the way you eat, sleep and exercise.
It’s very important to start making solid steps to changing your habits.
It’s tough but I’m proud of you for sticking with this entire section as it’s an extremely important component.
Take your time with this as change doesn’t happen overnight but I promise you if you stick to physical plan and the etnire course - you’ll notice results quickly.
Great job now let’s move on to talking about your psychological health. See in you in the next section.
There’s this thing in the addiction community called the chicken or the egg theory. We talk about this when we talk about co-occurring disorders. A co-occuring disorder is when someone is diagnosed with a mental health disorder as well as a substance use disorder. The reason we call it the chicken or the egg theory is because many times we don’t know what came first. Think about this for a moment.
Did you start using cocaine to escape from something or to band-aid a mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety? Or did using cocaine cause you to struggle with a mental health related problem?
Spiritual health is not to be confused with religion. You may or may not be religious and that’s okay.
When struggling with addiction a spiritual loss occurs. The official definition of spirituality is the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.
Everyone has something to offer the world and while it may take a while for you to uncover your true potentials, you are closer now than you ever were. I want you to be sure to take time every single day to reflect on the type of person you want to be.
This is our last portion of the psychological health section and for this let’s talk about living intentionally and by doing so you’re going to start to regain your confidence.
Intentional living is basically how you live your own life based on your own values and beliefs. I’m not here to tell you how to live your life but I am here to help you recognize some of your own deep down intentions.
There are four things you can do right now to start living intentionally.
Work on goal setting, journalling, determine your core values, and setting routines.
That’s it for the section on psychological health. We talked about your mental health, your spiritual health and living intentionally. Your psychological health is so important so please don’t forget this piece of the pie. Be sure to work on all of the actionable items I’ve been discussing. Next, we’re going to talk about your social health. See you there.
Your family’s involvement in your recovery could make or break whether or not you are able to fully kick your addiction forever; why? Because more likely than not family is there forever.
Oftentimes, addictions stem from unresolved childhood issues but not all the time. It’s important to know if this is your case or not. If you have suffered from childhood abuse or neglect, you more than likely started using substances as a way to escape the pain you deal with every day.
Now that we’ve talked about family - let’s talk about friends.
Unlike family, your friends are the people that you have chosen over the time span of your life. Some of you may have childhood friends that are still your friends now and some of you may have friends that you have just met. Either way, let’s talk about how to approach the friend situation.
That’s it for our section on social health. Now you should have a better idea on how to approach your family, friends and professional colleagues. Now that we’ve talked about your physical, psychological and social health, let’s talk about what to do now that you’re not using - how to manage triggers and so on. See you in the next section.
We covered a lot in this course and hopefully now you’re on track to take charge of your cocaine addiction by taking care of your physical body, your mind, and also your social surroundings. But what happens next? We’re going to talk about how to manage triggers and post acute withdrawal before we wrap up this course. I’ll see in the next lecture.
Now that you’ve gotten the tools you need to manage yourself physically, psychologically and socially what happens next? Well let’s first talk about the inevitable; triggers.
You’re going to be triggered often, more often in the beginning but rest assured, over time you’ll find the triggers to be less and less. But just saying that doesn’t help you right here and right now - when you get that trigger later today or tomorrow. So let’s talk about what to do.
We talked about the real withdrawal and how that’s going to feel physically. We talked about what to do if you feel triggered but something else is going to happen. There are going to be times where you are going to feel like you in withdrawal all over again.
Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome PAWS for short, is a term used in the addiction field to describe a withdrawal symptoms after your body has already physically withdrawn. It’s important for you to know this is going to happen so that you’re not caught off guard. For those who don’t know it’s going to happen, it can be scary and oftentimes a times a huge trigger followed by a relapse. If you know this is going to happen, you can prepare yourself for it and know what to do when it happens.
