Today, pharmacology claims a vaccine may be pending in the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions. I won’t dissipation any thought on the myth that I ability return to responsible drinking some day. An “addiction vaccine” may, in performance, treat and even stop addiction from developing. But ~ one vaccine treats only physical dependency, and alcoholism is a three-pronged estate that also includes emotional and ideal ailments. A vaccine, then, will render nothing for the psychology of addictive behaviors like intemperate habits, gambling, over-eating and sexual obsession. Any “reparative” that lets me slide by by drinking without the shakes, hangovers and tiresome heaves is worth nothing if the morning after still greets me with compunction, remorse, shame or an appearance previous to a judge because of a DUI. Alcoholism is a three-rim sword of physical, emotional and ideal dependency and, until there’s a vaccine to repair a damaged emotional and ecclesiastical soul, I am never “cured.” Today, as an emotional and spiritual cure have power to’t be condensed in a syringe, I’ll stick with AA. And our vulgar journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2016
