An addiction is a habit that takes hold of our imaginations and refuses to allow us a focus on reality. Addictions also seduce us, heighten our senses and distort our inner yearnings. When we play into our addictions, we're like fake wooden decoys in the shape of "sitting ducks," bobbing up and down in the middle of a lake, devoid of life. Can addictions be cured? That can only be answered on a case-by-case basis, but the real question is whether addictions can be drained of their necessity. Can you imagine yourself beyond your addictions? In Defeating Addictions, Richard Pace allows you to use your imagination to decide just how you will address your own addictions. You will be able to poke fun at the almost religious sanctity with which we approach addictive behavior, and that in turn will help you trip up faulty logic that keeps you "dead in the water." You will be able to challenge your fears about your addictive behavior. You will finally realize that you may control your yearnings more easily by examining them in your imagination. Be prepared to imagine yourself as an octopus with a communications problem, a professional spoiled brat, and even a wizard who owns a magic wand but is too afraid to use it. Mr. Pace applies the same 30 day matrix that he has used in the other Hard Shell Publications, Growing Self Confidence and Building Relationships. Every day, for thirty days, you will apply your imagination to situations that you would probably never realize you could link together. You will be able to examine why you turn some of your needs into addictive habits. You will begin to face down your craving for substances and activities that place you in a holding pattern. You can start to take control of your own thoughts and dictate your mind's desires to your brain instead of the other way around. By taking control of your imagination, you can go beyond your addictions and get in touch with your real needs and wants. Defeating Addictions is the third volume in the PACE YOURSELF series of nine books presented by Richard Pace for your enjoyment and learning experience. This series of books is the result of the study of life cycles and how they slowly open the inner mind.
