    A good article, I think, about the disease of alcoholism.


    Have known many alcoholics, some personally, and some from Viet Nam war, when I worked in detox and rehab.



    Understanding the Insanity of Alcoholism: How the Alcoholic Thinks

    Friends and family of active alcoholics ask me to explain how the alcoholic thinks. I am happy to share what I have learned after we establish what their motives are.



    Master Manipulators
    Alcoholics are master manipulators. They may not have been con artists before they started drinking but they come to have remarkable skills. They are the folks who can sell ice to Eskimos. They will pick a fight with you because they want to leave and they will have you believing it’s your fault. They show little or no accountability. They may have had integrity before their addiction kicked in but it will be conspicuously absent from their lives as they spiral. There is often one exception to this rule for each alcoholic – one thing they do especially well and it will most generally be their sole source of self esteem. We have known a large number of alcoholics who have incredible work ethics because being a good worker is the one thing they know they’re good at…well, they will say that and drinking.

    Addicts have a common set of mental skills. These happen to overlap narcissist skills as well.

    The US with 330 million was hitting over 300,000 per day and over 3,000 deaths during one of the waves. Russia has 146 million
    and is at 40,000 and 1,200 deaths.

    Russia should be having high rates of serious cases and mortality because it has a large percentage of people with the metabolic
    syndrome.

    I know through contacts that a lot of people are not being serious about the virus. Like many people around the world they
    have covid fatigue and are behaving like covidiots. Vaccination rates are not explanatory. What is "ravaging" Russia are new
    strains which none of the vaccines around the world have effectiveness against. They are new strains that emerged
    after mass vaccination.

    Not to mention Russia is located on the border of the country where America made this virus...

    Hence why Russia should just stop lockdowns.  It's apparently known that hospitalization rate for non Vax people is about 0.86%. So if this is the case, then it's just better to get it, let your white blood cells develop the antibodies, and go on about your life. Countries with well over 80% vaccination rate is still having outbreaks and lockdowns.

    So it's all pointless.

    Only reason why hospitals are getting over loaded is because people are sent to the hospitals over confirmed cases or because they were told to. Otherwise, in a lot of countries, they tell them to lock themselves down for 14 days.
