addictions counseling & forums
From the quiet world of CZ blogs, an addictions counselor's little shout-out is heard

Sometimes the blogs at CureZone seem like a remote outpost. The forums seem to be mainly where all the action is on CureZone. So be it. I'm not really a competitive sort, and have enjoyed the blogs much more ever since venturing into CureZone many years ago.
Although I love it when I get messages and email from people out there in CureZone land, I'm ok with remaining in a state of obscure bliss as well.
What else was I going to say?? I remember many years ago when I made special personalized Bach Flower Remedies for my friends. Around then was when I realized I enjoy helping others, and that my instincts about the underlying causes for what people present as their physical and emotional symptoms are pretty much correct.
It's a real joy to be able to help other people. At least it always has been for me.
Nowadays I work primarily as a professional addictions counselor. That field of work has been pretty much relegated to such things as running groups for people who have gotten DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol) citations and such.
Most of the clients have found a way to blame someone else for whatever has happened to bring them under the scrutiny of the legal system. For me, this sort of addictions counseling work does not feel like healing work.
I would so much prefer to be doing healing work.
I have thought about going through the process of finding out how one starts a forum here on CureZone, and offering to share with others whatever I can about addictions, both from being a person in recovery for 10+ years myself, and/or from being an addictions counselor for just about the same length of time.
I am not competitive, as I've said, and not much into popularity contests, debate, or what I refer to as "dog & pony shows."
I wonder if it's possible to have a grassroots sort of forum, like what I visualize, here on CureZone?
Perhaps I want too much. Am I being unrealistic?
I know I have something to share. I know there are questions I can answer. I know what helps people move beyond their addictions ... without any sort of medical intervention.
Are you reading my words? Do you have something to say? I would love to hear from you.
