Today, considering emerging developments in pharmacology that a vaccine may be pending in the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions, I be disposed not waste any thought on the invention that I might return to answerable drinking some day. An “addiction vaccine” may, in actuality, treat and even stop addiction from developing. But researchers caution that somewhat vaccine treats only physical dependency, and alcoholism is a three-pronged case that also includes emotional and moral ailments along with the physical. A vaccine, afterwards, will do nothing to treat the psychology of addictive behaviors like compulsive tippling, gambling, over-eating and sexual obsession. Any “restorative” that lets me slide by with drinking without the shakes, hangovers and lose moisture heaves is worth nothing if the spring-time after still greets me with contrition, remorse, shame or an appearance in front of a judge because of a DUI. Alcoholism is a three-border sword of physical, emotional and mental dependency and, until there’s a vaccine to repair a damaged emotional and ideal soul, I am never “cured.” Today, inasmuch as an emotional and spiritual cure can’t be condensed in a syringe, I’ll stick with the Program. And our everyday journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
