5 Tips To BEAT Addiction - Forever...

Read This Short Report To Get Started Right Away

From The Desk Of A. Scott Roberts

Dear Friend,

People all over the world are literally spending thousands of dollars on luxurious rehabs, expensive treatments, confusing workbooks and endless counseling - but they are STILL unable to BEAT addiction.

The truth is, common recovery programs, self-help groups and 12 step programs may be silently holding you back from breaking free from addiction forever.

You need to know about the  evidence-based techniques that have been proven to boost long-term success. Below are a few tips to get you started...

I have achieved results that I have never been able to achieve in the past. It has now been thirty-five days since I started and I have not had a cigarette in thirty of those days, nor do I want one.

TIP 1: Use Methods Backed By Science

Most recovery options do not follow evidence-based guidelines

You'd be surprised at the simple things you can do to live addiction free... However, these evidence-based techniques I speak of are not taught in common rehab programs..

You can use these methods at any time and you can take them with you, wherever you go…

But before we get started, you need to know a few simple things...

You need to know that common methods for treating addiction can make matters worse!(1,2,3) - This problem is recognized on a national level!

The reason why addiction recovery fails is because addiction is a biochemical issue in the brain and 95% of treatment centers do not address this underlying issue... 

Most recovery programs are developed from the Minnesota Model which started nearly 70 YEARS AGO. This model assumes that addiction only affects individuals that lack willpower, motivation or morals...

Whereas the last 50 years of research discredits these practices!

The majority of programs do not follow simple evidence-based guidelines...

Haven't you noticed that many counselors still struggle with addiction themselves? They haven't quite figured it out!

When an addicted individual tries to quit he experiences strong cravings and urges which are the result of depleted and malfunctioning neurotransmitters (chemicals) in his brain... 

No amount of motivation or morals will changes this...

You will overcome addiction when there is no "need" to artificially stimulate your brain with chemicals...

The real truth to beating addiction, is that success comes when you stop trying so hard to overcome, and instead, focusing on building a new life where addiction becomes unnecessary...

Our whole treatment systems with it's innumerable therapies, armies of therapists, large and expensive programs are founded on hunch. Not evidence and not science.(4)

William White, Senior Research Consultant at Chestnut Health Systems

Treating alcohol and other drug dependence solely through repeated episodes of detoxification and brief stabilization is clinically ineffective and constitutes a poor stewardship of personal and community resources. It requires a shift that will de-emphasize high intensity acute care and emphasize lower intensity, lower cost and more enduring support services.(5)

Enoch Gordis, Director of NIAAA

According to a study by Harvard University, only 20 percent of people with an addiction that entered traditional recovery programs were able to maintain sobriety the following year. After 8 years, ONLY 5 PERCENT.

Whats more shocking is that this same study revealed alcoholics who didn't use common recovery programs had greater success!(6)

Successful methods CAN be available to anyone and everyone...

Using evidence-based tricks and techniques yields profound results!

The First Step Is Nutrition, Here's Why..

The addicted brain has depleted and malfunctioning neurotransmitters caused by the weeks, months or years of over-stimulating the brain's reward center.

Drugs, alcohol, nicotine, snack foods and sweets, or even heavy porn use, activate and over-stimulate the brain's reward center.

But key nutrients (when taken together and in the right amount) replenish this imbalance...

That is the first step...

There are over 100 studies at MIT and Harvard that support the use of key nutrients to restore the brain...

One study examined 100 patients who were all addicted to alcohol.

Researchers just focused on restoring the biochemical issue in the brain by using a proper amount of nutrients to replenish neurotransmitter activity...

The result? 85 percent of participants stayed abstinent for 42 months.(8) 

Why the Huge Success Rate?

Because neurotransmitters (the brain's chemical messengers) are synthesized by certain nutrients...

When taken in proper amounts, nutrition restores depleted chemicals in the brain, dramatically diminishing withdrawal symptoms, improving mood and eliminating cravings...

This, combined with training techniques that changes your brain, has a profound effect on recovery...

Most People Quit On Their Own - Without Luxury or High-end Ffacilities

People who have an addiction often seek expensive and luxurious treatment...

The fact is most studies show long-term abstinence was achieved without traditional treatment.(9, 10, 11) 

The reason? Common recovery programs address addiction as a weakness of the individual caused through lack of commitment, willpower or determination...

Because of this misperception, Hot Seat Therapy, Attack Therapy or Confrontational Therapy is all too prevalent in AA, NA and 12 step programs in effort to scare the addict into changing...

As one researcher put it, "there isn't a single line of research showing successful clinical outcomes using these methods!"(14)

In Fact, The Last 50 Years of Research Shows That...

Confrontation and scare tactics increases resistance to change and creates other problematic behaviors.(12)

In one study, the more confrontation used in treatment, the more alcoholics ended up drinking! (13)

Opinion-based programs result in guilt-ridden individuals thinking they are deficient in moral development, weak in willpower or simply don't deserve treatment or help.

Is it any wonder AA reports a whopping 80 percent dropout rate in the first year?(15)

One important study comes from the University of New Mexico, which examined different approaches when confronting alcoholics with problem drinking...

Researchers determined that successful outcomes and long-term abstinence actually stemmed from higher levels of empathy shown, not confrontation.(17)  

In fact, empathy demonstrated toward an addicted loved one contributed to long-term positive effects up to 2 years!(18)

This is why Truth of Addiction program is also designed to help family members help their loved ones...

You can have access to it right now.

"Alcoholics that were not treated in clinical trials show a greater improvement. Most of the improvement which is interpreted as treatment effect, is not due to treatment."

- Cutler & Fishbain, Are Alcoholism Treatments Effective?

TIP 2: Stop Focusing So Much On Willpower

Researchers know that addiction does not boil down to the lack of one's will

The misconception that addiction only affects moral wrongdoers or the weak-willed always bothered me.

If you look at who becomes addicted, it isn't just those without responsibility, or the weak-willed. It includes people in high social status, doctors and lawyers, successful business men who have achieved a great deal in life.

The truth is, anyone and everyone can become addicted.

Today, science knows that there is much more to consider then just inherent weak-wills...

Researchers know there is much more to this from examining part of the brain called the Limbic System...

This limbic system is also called the "reward system." It controls, motivates and urges us to engage in certain behaviors...

...this limbic system is directly activated by anything that is pleasurable or habit forming...

This includes drugs, alcohol, pornography, tobacco and food...

This part of the brain is VERY strong because it is denser than other brain structures (allowing more powerful signal transmission), and developed before humans arrived on the earth.

This same reward system was found in ANCIENT LIFE such as anthropoids, inveterate phyla and mollusks.19

Essentially, this limbic system is a motivational-incentive system that drives an organism's behavior.

But today, our brains our being "hijacked" by all sorts of drugs that were not present to our ancient ancestors...

The Limbic System is heavily tied to the autonomic nervous system...

The autonomic nervous system controls the blinking of our eyelids, the beating of our hearts, and yes, the URGE for your drug of choice!

You do not consciously control these things, they just happen.

Urges and intrusive thoughts to use often just pop into your mind and at times, may seem to come out of nowhere.

You are NOT weak-willed if you experience these messages sent from your brain...

But you do need to know how to respond to them...

By changing the perception you have about urges and cravings, and by responding appropriately to them, they start to diminish...

Panicking or trying to suppress them results in a fight of flight response that actually feeds these signals.

And this is what 90 percent of people do!

The Brain is A "Team of Rivals"

The different brain structures fight against itself for dominance

Team of rivals brain Neuroscientists know that the brain is a multiple-structured system in which different structures "fight," or are in "conflict," with each other for dominance...

Hence, the brain has been called a "team of rivals."(20)

This explains why many addicted individuals feel as if there is a different part to them – a part that desperately wants to quit, while another part strongly urges them to continue...

...family members describe their loved one as a Mr. Jekyll and Dr Hyde...

...This is because dopamine- the primary ("feel good") chemical in the brain, actually starts to alter in favor of the limbic system...

The brain becomes "hijacked" from your addictive drug.(21)

This hijacking of the brain, alters our perceptions, behaviors and beliefs...

...as well as our motivations, rewards and drives...

Soon addicted individuals start to overvalue the emotional payoff of their drug of choice over the rational and negative consequences...

Addicts start to develop the belief that the addiction is really doing something for them...

But it isn't....

...you may think that your addiction is eliminating stress, taking the edge off,  or boosting your social confidence, but it actually worsens it!

The addicted individual will actually undergo a "faulty" learning process...

And a momentary slip can feel like complete and utter failure...

The truth is that a slip can be a great stepping stone, not a stumbling block.

To slip or to relapse is not a defeat but actually a common response to a challenge...

In fact, those who obtain long-term sobriety actually relapse around 2-3 times!(26)

Abstinence, even attempted abstinence, has tremendous value!

Once you quit, your body can undergo significant biochemical changes in just a short period of time....

...cell regeneration occurs in alcoholics only after a couple weeks of sobriety.(23)

Relapse is mostly caused by emotional states, not physical dependence as once thought.(23)

This shows us how much improvement one has actually made when attempting to quit!

To tell an addicted individual that all the days, weeks, months or even years of abstinence didn't mean a thing because he slipped, feeds discouragement, depression and despair, the very emotions that have shown to lead to relapse in the first place!(24)

But when the body is free from addiction, it makes efforts to slowly fall back to baseline....

Neuoplasticity (brain changes) and neurogenisis (birth of new neurons) has been found to occur in adults...

Successful addiction recovery will not only address physical dependency, but also your thoughts, emotions and mood....

This is because, once an addicted individual is free from their drug, they often experience increased feelings of depression and anxiety and sensitivity to stressors...

Properly managing negative emotional states and intrusive thoughts to use, will boost long-term success.

Some people in recovery continue to experience depression long after they have been sober for some time...

This is because the reward system has become less-responsive due to over-stimulation...

Basically, the brain becomes harder to stimulate by "natural" rewards.

In such cases, it is vitally important to use methods that feed the brain through key nutrients...

...you need to keep neurotransmitter activity balanced!

There are over 100 studies at MIT and Harvard that have confirmed that just using amino acids to increase neurotransmitters in subjects led to eliminating depression, cravings, anxiety and stress(27) (the very emotions that trigger relapse).

In a few words, junk food was the only food we'd ever eat. There has been around 40 days since we followed the advice found in all the Truth of Addiction E-Books and videos, and we can both say our health is back to normal, actually better then ever.

TIP 3: Start Changing Your Brain, The Right Way

Use Evidence-based Techniques to Manage Thoughts, Emotions and Mood

Researchers know that the brain can be changed, formed, remapped and rewired.

Neuroplasticity (or brain plasticity) is a term used to describe the changes in neural pathways caused by body injury, thinking patterns, emotions, environment and behavior.(28)

Neurons, which are cells in the brain, are not ENTIRELY connected. When we have repetitive thoughts or behaviors, neural networks and pathways are created. These pathways are created by neurons firing (sending signals) to each other.

Leveraging the power of the brain, you can change destructive habits into positive ones...neural network representation

Neurons that fire together, they wire together...

Through neural firing, behaviors are either strengthened or weakened...

When the neural pathways change, the brain chemistry changes along with it!(29)

It’s also true that when neurons stop firing along the same pathway, the connections become weak and a whole new set of thought patterns and behaviors can be developed.

You see, most people take medications, pills or drink alcohol to feel better. But medicating yourself only changes the brain’s chemistry, it doesn’t change the neural pathways. The chemical change only lasts as long as the drug is synthesized to last...

It is never permanent.

But by rewiring the brain you can change the behavior, desires and urges.

This also impacts depression and anxiety..

Scientists now know that neuroplasticity (neurons changing) and neurogenisis (the birth of new neurons) occurs throughout human life...

Neuroplasticity can begin with small molecular changes caused by learning, to large-scale cortical changes that actually remap the brain.

Studies show that environment and cognition (thoughts) can alter the connectivity of neurons...(30) 

Neurogenisis (the birth of new neurons) also occurs,(31) and some practices make a PROFOUND change in the brain...

The brain is always active. It is always strengthening or weakening it's neural networks...

But what about those that have years of engrained addiction?

As mentioned before, addiction boosts chemicals in the brain and over-stimulates the brain's reward system. The brain starts to anticipate this over-stimulation by responding in a less-efficient way. This is known as tolerance.

The brain responds in a less-efficient way by decreasing neurotransmitter activity and receptor availability.(32)

Basically, the brain thinks it is producing too many chemicals so it becomes less responsive in effort to obtain homeostasis. Neurons Transmission ImageAs a result, addicted individuals often combat this dulling of their "reward" center by taking more and more drugs.

Addiction results in an increasing desire for a diminishing pleasure.

There's no winning...

Because of this over-stimulation, addicted individuals quickly become UNMOTIVATED for everyday "normal" rewards and soon feelings of depression, confusion, irritability and fatigue follow. (33)

An addicted individual will start to take drugs to feel good, but end up taking them just to feel normal.

However, taking amino acids derived from proteins boost neurotransmitter activity in the brain....

When you eat amino acids they are converted into neurotransmitters, via the body's metabolic process...

Eliminating sugar from the diet and adding complex carbohydrates and high protein foods, boosts this neurotransmitter activity as well.

This has been really helpful in helping me to quit. The information is very useful and the videos really helped me to finally take a leap of faith.

Dinesh Reddy , New Zealand

This program gave me the confidence I needed to quit. Visualizing and thinking about cravings in a different way is powerful.

Ray Daniels, Australia

TIP 4:  React To Cravings Differently Then You Did In The Past

Did you know that fighting or suppress cravings actually feeds them? This is what 90 percent of people do!

When you get a craving, you either give in or panic...

These intrusive cravings and urges to use, come from the survival parts in the brain, the limbic system...

This is why cravings feel as if you need your drug of choice...

But you don't need it. You'll be fine without it.

You need to understand what a craving actually is and why it isn't a threat to your survival even though it may feel like it...

Addicted individuals call this seductive pull for their drug a craving. Scientists call it a cue. Non-addicts might call it a temptation...

Whatever you call it, science has revealed what actually happens when experiencing those seductive pulls...

Dr. Childress, psychiatrist and researcher, used PET scans on participants to view neural activity.

What she discovered was that an addict's brain will release a small burst of dopamine during a craving...

A craving will spike dopamine similar to a small dose of the drug itself, that is why some people report tasting the drug in the back of their throats, even though they really haven’t taken any. A craving is a primer, a seductive pull... the trigger that addicts experience actually gives them a small taste of the drug itself before they even get there.(34)

- Dr Childress, Psychiatrist

3d model of dopamine

What this means, is that the sight of a beer bottle to an alcoholic or the smell of cigarette smoke to a smoker, spikes dopamine in the addict's brain, causing strong cravings and desire...

These cravings you experience are really false messages that have been classically conditioned and strengthened over time....

One of the methods of the Truth Of Addiction system is to become aware of cravings as they happen and relabel them to what they really are: False Messages.

They are not real needs, but are often felt as such...

Cravings grow by indulgence.

Sometimes they pop into your mind regardless of your desire to stop it...

This is because cravings and urges come from the survival parts of the brain. They have become automatic, just like the urge to eat or drink...

Suppressing or reacting to them in a panic or trying to fight them off, as MOST people do, feeds them.(35)

Instead, you must learn to react in a different way, a less worried way than you did in the past.

You're not a bad person for having urges or intrusive thoughts that pop into your mind...

But you do need to know how to react to them properly, to lessen their intensity and frequency...

What loved ones of addicts do not often realize, is that cravings and urges happen to recovering addict's regardless of their desire to stop it.

The Way An Addicted Individual Is Treated Has A Profound Effect On Recovery

In fact, one study showed that the way an addict is treated by those in his or her social circle has a greater impact than common recovery methods that were used!(36)

An addict’s resistance during recovery is powerfully affected by how the people within his/her life supports them, INTERACTS with them and talks with them.(37)

When problem drinkers were randomly assigned to two different therapist styles (given by the same therapists), one confrontational-directive and one motivational-reflective, those in the former group showed substantially higher levels of resistance and were much less likely to acknowledge their problems and need to change...(38)

The way that family members, counselors or support groups interact with an addict can dramatically impact an indiviudals probability to change.(39)

"People can dramatically influences an addict's defensiveness, which, in turn, predicts the degree to which the loved one will change... People with addiction problems do no generally possess high levels of denial and resistance, but these things increase as loved ones and therapists improperly get involved"

- Patterson & Forgatch, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology

An important goal in producing change, is to AVOID evoking loved one resistance(40) and instead, employ evidence-based techniques that produce positive outcomes...

Certain kinds of reactions are likely to exacerbate resistance, back the loved one further into a corner and elicit non-compliance.(41)

The Truth Of Addiction Program is not just for someone currently struggling with an addiction but can be of great help for those that have addicted loved ones.

A bonus ebook titled "Eliciting Motivation To Change" is included in the program so that you can motivate those you love.

TIP 5: Eat Key Nutrients While Using Evidence-Based Methods

Key Nutrients Are Vital

“Unless the biochemical imbalances which are the true causes of substance problems are corrected, the benefits of psychological counseling will be marginal for most people.(42)

- Dr. Charles Grant , psychiatric consultant

Addicted individuals have depleted and malfunctioning neurotransmitters (chemical messengers in the brain).

Neurotransmitters are the basis of how we think, act and behave. Once corrected, addicts will think, act and behave differently...

The first step in recovery is to restore the brain and body through proper nutrients to help correct the biochemical imbalances...

In one report, those who used nutrients during recovery showed a 92 percent success rate!(43)

Most addicts eat very poorly because their brain has been switched to DESIRE HIGHLY PROCESSED and REFINED SUGARS in an effort to get the needed boost of dopamine - which may actually put them at greater risk for relapse.(45)  

highly processed and refined sugars with key nutrients, recovered more quickly, had fewer withdrawal symptoms and were able to manage their addiction long-term.(46)

You may notice that when you get off your drug you start to develop a desire for another... sugar.

Sugar boosts dopamine in the brain (as well as causes dramatic blood-glucose levels to fluctuate).(47)

Addictions are chemically-based in the brain, it doesn't really matter what the addiction is.

Getting the brain out of destructive habit loops coupled with restoring the neurotransmitters in the brain through proper nutrition, is of vital importance.

These EXPENSIVE options teach the same thing. Just regurgitated information...

You don’t have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to manage addiction. In fact, expensive treatment options are relatively ineffective.(48, 49, 50)
