The Dragon Scroll

I found myself at an NA meeting the other night accidentally. Of course Master Oogway (Kung Fu Panda) would say there are no accidents.

It made me think about some of the differences between the two programs, AA and NA. I can identify as an addict. I know all about using any means necessary to relieve myself of my immediate pain. Alcohol just happened to be my prefered method.

There is an excellent book I’ve read recently that talks about the addictive personality and its source. It is called, surprisingly enough, The Addictive Personality by Craig Nakken. His point seems to be that we use our particular addiction(s) to deal with our pain instead of, appropriately, turning to people and relationships to help us get through.

Seems obvious enough however, I often need the obvious pointed out to me and I also needed an excuse to put a picture of Master Oogway in my blog. He rules!
