Re: Vikings Cut Koren Robinson

riggorules, can you explain to me exactly how this addiction thing works then? your life is ruined, you can never hold down a job again, and you are never a productive member of society again? millions of addicts are in everyday society functioning and contributing normally. its a lifelong battle that can be won if you want to win it. that means going to meetings, talking to the right people and keeping yourself out of bad situations. knowing your issues is at least half the battle.

How does it work? Kind of the way cancer does. Your life is ruined, you can't hold a job and are not a productive member of society any more (like you said). And millions get through it -- but millions more don't. Most don't.

Just like cancer, the determination to fight it, is only a very, very small part of the battle. This idea that all it takes is that you need to "want to win it" is a bunch of crap. Addiction is not about weakness of character. Yeah, it takes character and will power to overcome, but to look at a Koren Robinson and say "he isn't trying hard enough" is BS. That is just like looking at a cancer victim on their death bed and saying they didn't try hard enough.

One thing it does take is information, education and a lack of ignorance (not just for the addict, but those around the addict). It is the ignorance expressed on this board that I'm reacting to.

Re: Vikings Cut Koren Robinson

so you are saying that if the people that are affected want to win the battle, they more than likely lose anyway? and if my opinon on this subject is different then yours, its not a disagreement but staright ignorance on my part? if your not a doctor in this field, then why is your view the right view?

i'm telling you fighting off returning addiction is so hard one can't believe it unless he's experienced it firsthand.i had to quit drinking 15 years ago because i knew if i kept on doing it,i would never stop until i went over the edge,it was really controlling my life.i hope this young man gets help,and gets his life together again,even if he never plays football again.he needs to talk to ex vikings jim marshall and carl eller,both of them were pro football all stars and recovering alcoholics.maybe they can help him!

Another point is also living the life of a NFL player/celebrity very flashy and acohol usually ends up being a part of that life.
