Addiction Does Not Discriminate

Addiction Does Not Discriminate: A Ground-Breaking Equal Opportunity, Self-Help Recovery Manual That Works For Everyone!

SWEET ACCEPTANCE VERSUS BITTER RESISTANCE: Overcoming Addiction & Bad Habits Using Psychology, Spiritualism & Law of Attraction Combined!In light of Whitney Houston’s demise and others who have been tragically hurt by addiction, Dr. Peter Sacco was asked in a recent interview: ‘Why do so many people have addictions, engage in bad habits, and seem so miserable?’ His response pinpoints why people often become dependent on a ‘fix.’

He said, “Most people today are having what I call near-life experiences–they endure life, withstand it, tolerate it and become indifferent. The problem is too many people stopped enjoying and engaging life way too young, when they were told their dreams are ridiculous, impossible and that they should grow up. Until you awaken the little kid in you again, you are not having a real-life experience!”

In Sweet Acceptance Versus Bitter Resistance (Booklocker and Andrews UK Publishing), author Dr. Peter Sacco breaks new ground, combining psychology with spirituality by using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques together with the eight Beatitudes from the Holy Bible, to overcome addiction. By applying the principles and tools outlined in Sacco’s book, readers will be on the road to recovery in breaking addiction, dealing with bad habits and/or changing negative thinking patterns.

Sacco teaches individuals held captive by an addictive personality how to find the self they have been seeking and how to receive what they want in life. No one need ever be a slave to cigarettes, expensive drugs, or a painful drinking habit – Sweet Acceptance Versus Bitter Resistance is the pathway to a better life – without dependency!

Sacco’s groundbreaking self-help book comes on the tails of his recent self-help books (Penis Envy: Does Size Really Matter?, Breast Envy: The Women Who Love Them And The Men Who Lust Them, and The Madonna Complex: Why Men Are Wired To Cheat which are now published on 4 continents. Much of the research in these books (sex addiction, cosmetic surgery/make-over addictions and pornography addiction helped lead to the creation of this latest book).

Dr. Sacco’s latest book is highly rated and accepted by individuals, regardless of whether they are going through 12-step programs or one-on-one counseling, as well as those with no addictions support. By combining his practical and theoretical knowledge with his revolutionary 3-tier approach of psychology, spiritualism and law of attraction, he provides readers with the necessary tools to overcome their addictions and transform their lives.

NY Times bestselling author, Robert A. Schuller, had this to say about Peter Sacco’s latest book: “For Years, Peter has been using his cognitive training skills and blending them with the ‘Beatitudes.’ The results of blending science with the words of Jesus have truly had amazing results. No surprise. What is a gift to humanity is that today he is sharing his secrets with you in this insightful book.”

Peter Sacco is the author of many international, popular selling books, as well as a psychology professor, and former private practitioner/Hypnotherapist.

Handfasting Ceremony

Have you ever been invited to a wedding ceremony, only to find that it’s not a regular wedding ceremony? As a Christian, when we realized what was taking place, I quietly excused myself from the handfasting ceremony and stepped out back, to be alone and pray.

Most of the guests thought the wedding was, “a little strange,” but the word “handfasting” was never used and most guests had no clue. At one point I even overheard the bride telling one of her guests that this was a “natural ceremony” and that the handfasting cord was “just something different” that the bride intends to frame as a keepsake.

It was all I could do,  not to say, “liar, liar pants on fire” or something a little more eloquent perhaps. Had we known that  the wedding was to be a handfasting ceremony, instead of a  Christian wedding ceremony, we would have opted not to attend.

Apparently, this is getting to be a common practice according to some of the websites I’ve been able to find on the topic. In fact one site just puts it right out there.

Subtle Wedding/Handfasting Ceremony

[The following wedding ceremony was written to provide for Pagans who must of necessity be wed in the presence of the uninitiated who are not pagan and are perhaps unaware that the bride and groom are pagan. Replace the words Bride and Groom below with the names of the happy couple…]

One website even claims that Christians are being wed in handfasting ceremonies, which I find very curious, as I don’t know of a single Christian couple who would be wed in a pagan ceremony.

According to Handfasting Info!

Handfasting is quite popular today, among many people who find that their own lifestyles call for an alternative joining ceremony to that provided by more typical weddings. Handfasting can be used by couples of the same sex, or by group marriages who wish to have more than two people in their families. They can be used by people who are members of Pagan (polytheistic nature religions), or by people who don’t necessarily share the same beliefs. There are also Christian and other folks who chose to use handfasting as their wedding rituals for various reasons, so don’t feel excluded form these resources.

The only thing I can figure out is that the couple has to know their religious views are totally wrong, or why wouldn’t they celebrate their love and their religious committments to each other publically? As a Christian I would never consider lying by inviting people to a Christian wedding ceremony and not telling them.

Why would they hide their pagan origins and call the ceremony a “natural ceremony?”   I didn’t see anything natural about it. From the portions of the ceremony I could actually hear, it sounded as though they were actually pledging their worship of the earth.

If you have a child, friend or family member who is involved in Wicca, please remember to pray for them daily. They are lost to the Lord and are so misguided they don’t even realize that they are in danger of eternal damnation.

Here are a few websites to assist you in understanding and in praying for your pagan loved ones…

  • What should Christians do if their child gets involved in Wicca?  – First of all, you need to read the Bible and pray regularly. You need to realize that this is a spiritual battle and that there are demonic forces involved. You cannot expect to win a spiritual battle if you are not praying.
  • Wicca Exposed!  – Wicca is the name for a contemporary pagan revival of witchcraft. Wicca is the name, and witchcraft is the game–and the Devil is laughing his head off. Although Wicca is new, the forces behind Wicca aren’t new.   Wicca is the same old wicked devil worship and rejection of God. It’s simply been warmed over and served to a spiritually devastated world. People would rather believe lies and do what they want to than believe the Lord and surrender to Him.   Consequently they will have no peace.
  • Hope After Hell – Wicca is a game so many people play.   A game that when  started, ends in many tears and many years of restoration.       Little did I realize how much damage I was doing to myself.   Not only to myself, but to others around me.
