The Recipe for Unhappiness
Reflect morbidly. Worry about everything. Tell
yourself that time is running out and you aren’t getting any younger. Rehash
the memories of all those times you zigged when you should have zagged.
Visualize all the people who have ever mistreated you and relive the
experience. Worry about your health. Go online and search medical databases to
diagnose any ache or pain you have and what it might be a symptom of. Money?
Have some? Will it be enough, will it last, what if some crook in a suit finds
a way to steal it? Don’t have much? How will you get more? What if you don’t?
Whatever your financial condition, dwell on all the possible negative outcomes.
In short, relentlessly focus on the negative. And above all, do not let any
thoughts of God or good dissuade you from your mission and you are quite sure
to be successful at being unhappy.

Silk sheets or city streets, Park Avenue or park bench, addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer of lives.
My name is Vincent Lee Jones and I have been in recovery since September 1985. My professional career began when I was nearly 20 years in recovery and was asked to work pro bono with at risk students at Huntington Beach High School. At the time I had developed a reputation within the at large recovery community as an effective communicator and was known to some of the faculty. After the death of two students from prescription drugs I was asked to start working with at risk students, which I did for nearly 5 years. Word of mouth lead to offers of compensated freelance Facilitator and Director positions with numerous local treatment facilities in the ensuing years.
As a retired Building Contractor/Designer, working in conjunction with a treatment facility, I created a construction program utilizing a workforce comprised almost exclusively of people new or returning to recovery, helping them to not only learn a trade and start making a living but since many of them had relapsed numerous times, to begin truly building a foundation with real aftercare to live free of active addiction. This program changed many lives.
In my 30+ years in recovery I have worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, teenagers to the retired, famous to infamous, prosperous to those living hand to mouth, adamant atheists to those embracing strong Religious beliefs; suffering from all manner of intoxicant and behavior-based addictions as well as those who love and care about them, both as a member in recovery Fellowships and as a treatment professional. I can be contacted at 714-366-1725.
I write and publish daily a recovery based nondenominational spiritually based blog at https://livinginspirit.blogspot.com with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
