I was an addict for many MANY years and after over 10 years clean, I figured it was time to do something for all my people who are struggling with their own nightmare. All I can really do is let them know they're not alone. I began doing the podcasts last fall, going for the big picture political aspect of drug use, drug wars, big Pharma, DEA criminality, the drug economy, etc. Most listeners weren't into it. "I can listen to PBS for that stuff..." I got a lot of messages asking for more tales of drug-induced mayhem, madness and stupidity.

For Patrons Only: 'Inside the Addiction Industry'
So my compromise is to deliver an exclusive Patreon Only video before every podcast episode called "Inside the Addiction Industry". It will go to members only to add some value and will cover the latest news and nefarious doings of the various agencies, organizations, corporations and other for-profit entities involved in the addiction biz. Popular listener opinion is all for the comic relief of addict behavior and that's cool. It's not like addicts don't enough grim news.

This shameful secret
And hey, everybody likes a good laugh when it relates closely to your own experience. I guess there's reassurance in finding out it wasn't just you doing all kinds of irrational, fckdup shit. One of the worst things about addiction is the isolation, that you've got this shameful secret and can't tell anybody who's not in same hell. Can't tell friends or family or anyone at work. Often can't even tell your partner, especially high functioning addicts who appear to have their life together -- on the surface. Group meetings and counseling can help but for a lot of addicts the group or counseling thing doesn't work right off the bat, especially the eccentric, creative types; the musicians, writers, performers and the like who have a hard time relating to the straight world at the best of times.

Reducing the Harm
So all I can do is let people know they have somewhere to go, somewhere to bitch and laugh and shoot the shit and prop others that are in the same boat. I try to get the idea across that you're only human, you gotta accept your own flaws, try to ease back and move toward putting down the drugs and picking up something else. It's called Harm Reduction. Slowly reduce the harm to yourself and those around you. After trying every kind of treatment and cure and many of them two or three times, Harm Reduction was all that worked for me and for so many others. You start slow, move toward the light inch by inch, good days and bad... make fewer harmful choices... it takes time.

Negotiate with your cravings
Some days you have to lie to yourself, even after a long time clean. It happens to all of us. You feel that powerful craving so maybe try to negotiate with the craving...
You say to your craving: " Okay, but not right now... I gotta take the dog to the vet, fix the car, get to work, all that daily routine gack. Let's wait till the weekend when there's time and peace to get high and groove on it. Let's not waste it... It'll be something to look forward to..."
The weekend comes and by then the craving has hopefully passed. They have peaks and valleys, come and go. If you're still craving, you need to weave another tale for yourself. That's reality. Thoughts and prayers and lots of emojis are fine but they won't stop the loneliness, the cravings, the sense of profound boredom with yourself. Reduce the harm little by little.

Do something for somebody else
There are other things you can do. Like help other people. Sounds simple but it can get you off your own back for a while. Help a neighbor do whatever, have a laugh with the pan handler in front of the 7-11, give them a couple bucks, do something for somebody aside from yourself.
Get a job, even part time. At first it doesn't matter much what kind of job. Something to kill all those hours you'd spend chasing the money and then chasing your stuff. Once you're more together, you can look around for some other work. Keep reducing the harm, sometimes hour by hour.

Newsflash to the experts
There is no proven cause that defines all addictions. There is no proven cure that works for all addictions. The countless purveyors of cures within the Addiction/Rehab Industrial Complex try like hell to tell addicts that THEIR program, THEIR cure will work for any type of addiction in 15 days, 30 days... a brand new you. I guess it's possible but... The reality is the Centers for Disease Control, over many years of research, found that fewer than 25% of addicts that enter rehab/recovery facilities or programs of all kinds stay clean beyond 6 months. And that's generous. The truth is believed to be closer to only 15% making it past 6 months.

Look into CBDs
But there are different kinds of help available these days. A regular guest on Our Wicked World is medical cannabis advocate Anthony Smilis and he's seen very positive results for people treated with the derivative oils of cannabis plants. CBDs, as they're known, can help addicts, people with PTSD, Parkinson's, nausea from cancer treatment, all kinds of conditions. And many of the oils are non-intoxicating, no THC. 

Irrational crap we try to feed you
If you are or have been involved with an addict or substance abuser, if they're your partner, your family member or friend, I know you roll your eyes at the irrational crap we try to feed to you to get money out of you or borrow your car or give you some bs about an emergency thing we have to go deal with Right Now and will be back in a flash and bla bla. It's your love that has kept many of us alive or given us that umpteenth break. This your show too.

Goals
$12 of $500 per month
1- Nobody ever tells you that producing a podcast with little help turns into a full time obsession! Right now I put out a podcast every week to 10 days, depending on other stuff going on, like work and so on. My primary goal is to have the podcast come out on a definite weekly schedule. So hiring a p/t person to help with production will be the first goal. Maybe they can also help with boosting downloads but probably need to hire a p/t Digital Marketer for that. The show gets a lot of streamed listens but not a lot of downloads. The problem is the high cost of WiFi for phones in N. America so listeners need to download the podcast first, which is how networks and advertisers rate a show, or so I'm told.
