"The faster (and smarter) way to end your addiction in the comfort of your home!"
Hey, it's Kevin...
Congrats on getting the Recovery Accelerator Blueprint!
It's helped many people end their addictions.
If you're serious about ending your addiction, make sure you read all of it.
Alright, let's start with some FAQs to calibrate your mind...
1) Is addiction a disease?
No. The main reason why the majority of the addiction treatment industry (therapists, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, recovery coaches, rehabs, sober living facilities, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, etc.) continues to promote the disease theory is for financial gain. The addiction treatment industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. The last time I checked, the market for addiction treatment in the United States was about $42 billion per year. Most of that money is generated by the disease theory because the vast majority of addiction treatment is based either partially or entirely on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). And, of course, AA relentlessly promotes the disease theory. Here's the thing though: a theory is an idea (aka supposition, hypothesis, speculation) intended to explain something. A theory is NOT a fact. Plus, when you compare addiction to true diseases, you'll discover that there's no infectious agent (as in tuberculosis), no pathological biological process (as in diabetes), and no biologically degenerative condition (as in Alzheimer's disease). So, apart from being scientifically baseless, the disease theory undermines hope, fails to end stigma, and prevents a lot of people from getting the help they need.
2) What is addiction?
Addiction is compulsive behavior despite adverse consequences. It can also be defined as emotional immaturity or a response to suffering.
3) What causes addiction?
Suffering causes addiction.
4) What causes suffering?
Suffering is caused by our core beliefs about ourselves, other people, the world, and the future. And our beliefs are upheld by the stories we tell ourselves.
5) What is the purpose of addiction?
The purpose of addiction is to relieve suffering (i.e. unpleasant emotions such as sadness, anger, shame, and feeling helpless or powerless).
6) What is recovery?
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) currently defines recovery as "a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential."
7) What does unaddictable mean?
Unaddictable means addiction-proof. It’s when you know (without a doubt) that you’ll never become addicted again no matter what happens. This certainty is the result of forming a new, helpful, and unshakable belief system, mastering emotion regulation skills, creating healthy habits, and consistently experiencing fulfillment in the areas of life that are deeply important to you.
8) How do I become unaddictable?
The fastest and easiest way to become unaddictable is to discover the systems and processes that work best for you.

If not, I'll still give you my best advice based on your situation, goals, and preferences.
Now you know more about addiction than most of the world.
Next, it's important to understand 7 myths that make recovery harder than necessary...
Myth 1: "Addiction is a disease."
Myth 2: "You are powerless."
Myth 3: "You're an alcoholic/addict."
Myth 4: "You should count your days of sobriety."
Myth 5: "People with addictions have an addictive personality."
Myth 6: "You have to hit rock bottom before you can get well."
Myth 7: "You need a sponsor."
Next, it's important to understand 7 common beliefs that fuel suffering and addiction...
1) “I’m not good enough.”
2) “I’m not worthy (of love, acceptance, success, etc.).”
3) “I’m not important.”
4) “I’m not capable (of creating, achieving, or obtaining what I want).”
5) “Mistakes and failures are bad.”
6) “If I make a mistake or fail I’ll be rejected.”
7) “I’m so different that I can’t connect with others.”
Do you have any of these beliefs?
If so, how have they been impacting your life?
They cause anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, perfectionism, procrastination, and all kinds of other fears and insecurities, right?
This is important to understand because your beliefs influence your thoughts, your thoughts influence your emotions, and your emotions influence your behavior. (This cycle also works in reverse!)
By the way, if you've been incredibly lucky and you haven't experienced any trauma, don't have any emotional scars, and supposedly don't have any repressed or unprocessed thoughts and feelings from your childhood, you may have developed unhelpful beliefs and psychological issues by experiencing a lack of control, not having enough of a supportive structure, or living through trauma as an adolescent or young adult.
However, if none of these apply to you, your problems are clearly not the result of deep, inner conflicts, or emotional disorders.
Rather, you experience stress, distress, and other unwanted thoughts and feelings because your life lacks ingredients such as peace, happiness, and fulfillment.
If that's the case, your beliefs and habits are the reason you're lacking those ingredients in your life.
Does that make sense?
Regardless of your situation, there are the 3 keys to ending your addiction forever:
Next, I'm going to give you 7 tips to end your addiction faster and easier...
1) Pay attention to your emotions
2) Clarify your values
3) Understand the "Ultimate Success Formula"
Anyone that's achieved anything worthwhile has followed this formula:
Also, it's important to celebrate your progress because emotions create habits.
And, of course, never give up!
4) Answer the "3 Most Important Questions"
Then, clarify why it’s important to have those experiences, why it’s important to achieve your personal growth goals, and why it’s important to contribute to the world in those ways.
5) Clarify your Perfect Average Day
If there were no limitations or consequences, what would your Perfect AVERAGE Day look like?
*Hint* Don’t think about acquiring stuff. We’re going for EXPERIENCE. If the stuff is an irrevocable part of the experience, and it makes its way into your vision, then okay… leave it in.
Otherwise, focus on how you’d love to FEEL in each moment — peaceful, joyful, fulfilled, etc.
6) Create new habits like a pro
Socrates said, "The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new."
So, don’t focus on fighting your addiction.
Instead, decide which healthy habits you want, and focus on creating them.
The 3 keys to creating habits like a pro are:
Remember, you never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, you need to build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
7) Hire a mentor
This is the most important tip because the right mentor can help you accelerate your recovery faster than anything else.
Basically, there are 2 ways to grow:
