Liquid Handcuffs: Break free from pills; live healthy & happy
When the cure is worse than the ailment - getting put on a myriad of pain pills, the pain in getting off them; a societal challenge.
The United States encompasses roughly 5% of the World's population, yet its citizens consume roughly 80% of the World's pharmaceuticals. If you know anyone who is, or has been 'handcuffed' to Rx, then this is a story worth viewing (and supporting). This is a story about becoming a functioning pharmaceutical poster child in the throes and depths of a legal drug addiction, and upon realizing this, what it took to break the cycle of addiction. It chronicles close to a decade of my life, whereby I was placed on extremely potent narcotics to combat a yet to be diagnosed problem; with no thought to the long-term effects of these "wonder drugs". After waking up one day, several years later, problem still not diagnosed, I realized that my whole perception of the world had changed and I wondered if it was the drugs that caused this. I began to take a long look at the types of narcotics and the differences between what they were supposed to do, and what they did. This book articulates a unique and different perspective to the seedy underworld of what happens to MANY of us, when "the cure" becomes far worse than the ailment; and the necessary steps that must be taken to get our perceptions (and lives) back. My book is written and edited. Every penny raised will go into publishing, marketing (the marketing piece will absorb the majority of the costs; which I am happy to share with all backers), securing ISBN number(s), minor graphics, and last but certainly not least, 'reward fulfillment' (hard costs) for you kind backer-folk..... I most sincerely thank you....sj
