    I tried for years to be abstinent from alcohol and finally I did it. My brain was rewired due to coming within a nanosecond of losing my life. But, even though I was abstinent from alcohol, I continued to smoke cigarettes until again my brain was rewired, due to becoming blind in one eye for 5 minutes. I finally achieved sobriety and not once in 40 years has the desire to drink or smoke returned. In other words, abstinence isn't sobriety!

    In contrast, a thread asking how to quit crack was answered with a fairly uninspired, ‘hopefully you’ll learn to hate it’ and in one thread discussing how to taper alcoholism, one solution proffered was to use more alcohol. However, there were far more sensible suggestions handed out to people seeking advice on quitting and the negative effects of drug use. But even so, these are amateur drug counselors, and someone has to take charge if the advice becomes unhelpful, or if a discussion heads towards mayhem.
