CONQUERING DRUG AND ALCOHOL ADDICTION


I was a radioactive drinker and there were times of suicidal depression. I've struggled with low self-esteem, terrifying demons, inability to finish projects, procrastination, self-loathing, fear and the lust for fame. But after a chain of events that can only be described as ‘miracles,’ my biggest downfall turned out to be my greatest gift.

I've spoken about this in recovery circles, and often stopped to wonder ‘how did these seemingly miraculous events happen?’ There was one common element: SURRENDER. When I gave up fighting (and worrying), the outside picture changed. But what is the metaphysics of surrender? How did an inner change affect an outer result? By letting go and tapping into an unsuspected inner resource, I’ve had healings that are beyond human understanding, even major financial ones. I’ve finally figured how to recreate the mind-set necessary to activate these events. What appear to be miracles are actually natural laws according to Quantum Physics. Our loving attention to something literally alters the physical universe. It’s hard to talk about these things because they appear to exist in the realm of the magical. But they are real and everyone has access to them, they just don’t pay attention or take them seriously — and that makes all the difference. As Einstein said, “No problem can be solved on the same level it was created on.” In other words, you can't fight fire with fire; you can't cure alcoholism with more alcohol or drugs; you can’t go to war to create peace — you have to go to a higher level — a spiritual or diplomatic solution. Or as George Carlin put it, “Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”


 The mainstream media rarely mentions the vital, mysterious spiritual element of 12-step programs. And no one asks the root question: why are so many celebrities either dead or in rehab? What breed of person comes to Hollywood seeking the adoration of strangers? Wanting to be famous is an American malaise. With all due respect to Dr. Pinsky, shows like Celebrity Rehab seem dangerously self-conscious. How can a person heal when he’s playing to the camera? “You can’t save your ass and your face at the same time." - Lydia Cornell

Our society rewards glitz, glamour, competition, obsession with winning and achieving. We never allow young artists to fail and you must be allowed to write, paint and sing badly in order to grow.

“It’s not enough to put down the drug or drink; once you put down the ‘spirits’ you have to fill the void with true spirit, and lasting peace.  You have to go out in the world and live your life with joy."

I found my precious brother’s body after his drug overdose. I, too, have struggled with low self-esteem, demons and the lust for fame. But I would not be alive nor would I have been able to raise children if I hadn't gotten sober 17 years ago by giving up my self-will and surrendering to a power greater than myself. This is the easier, softer way. Once you stop struggling, everything becomes so calm and sweet. It’s like plugging into an electric socket: once you lean on a power greater than yourself, you have more power. The creative force of love which I call God really exists and is always ready to take care of us completely when we stop resisting. Then we have true power.
You have to take the leap of believing that the Universe, your higher Power, love, God or whatever you want to call it, exists. Then the magic happens.

The creative force that sustains the universe is interactive; it needs our participation. In fact, it can’t exist in our lives without our consent, belief, faith or interaction. It needs playmates. It needs to express itself through us. More and more I’m beginning to believe what Elizabeth Gilbert said in her Ted Talks on Genius -- that  there are no individual geniuses. Mozart, Beethoven, Einstien... we are all just transcribers of creative consciousness – we are taking down God’s thoughts. Some are expressing God through music, some through art, some through writing and poetry and movies, some through comedy, some through tragedy, some through cooking, planting and growing, some through design, building, teaching, science, discoveries. 
           
What is the point of gaining the whole world if you lose your soul?  After all the years of struggling to make it — to find true love, to be rich, to have a happy family with a lagoon pool and water-slides, to live my dreams in a hammock in Maui — I’ve come to the conclusion that there is only one urgent need of mankind: to find God. But I’m not talking about the kind of “god” you may be thinking of — the kind that divides and judges. I thought I was too hip to believe in God and used to wonder if I find God canl I still have a sex life? I’m talking about unconditional love and an inner peace that is unshakable. 

The word God has become so political and dirty and misunderstood, I’m embarrassed to use it. I feel guilty about being embarrassed, and I’m not even Catholic. Or Jewish. (This is a joke, as in "Jewish or Catholic guilt."All I know is, no human power was able to lift me out of my suicidal despair. The God I’m talking about has no religion attached – no rules, dogma, yarmulkes, pointy bishops hats, long velvet robes, crystals, coins, rosaries, bows toward Mecca or steps to the left. No long, memorized prayers or deciphering of archaic doctrines. Only redemption. 

I have had astonishing results from prayer. I know that prayer actually changes things in the physical universe. But the kind of prayer I’m talking about does not involve begging some anthropomorphic being who rules by fear and punishment. It involves letting go of your fears and worries and truly surrendering them to a loving higher power, whatever your own concept of this is. Substituting your worries with Divine Love, the power of the universe. God is love. It is really that simple. I had to get my intellect out of the way and surrender my doubts first. Then I quietly screamed HELP!

 Addiction is the disease of our time. Alcohol is the number one drug of choice among teens in America, and girls ages 10-15 have the lowest self-esteem and highest rate of suicide attempts of any other group. Add to this the fact that over 85% of violent crime is alcohol and drug related, and we have an epidemic — yet this is rarely mentioned in media reports.

~ Lydia Cornell  Luv xo 11:11

Rest in peace Whitney Houston. You are soaring with the angels now. And as someone posted on Twitter, "another voice was added to Heaven's Choir."  Addiction, suicide, depression are all spiritual maladies that can be corrected by the power of Divine Love. And life is eternal; there is no death. Michael Jackson, Don Cornelius, Elvis, Marilyn, Jimmy Hendrix, Janis, Jim Morrison, River Phoenix, the list goes on... Let's wipe out this strange disease and help our children's generation wake up to the Truth of Being, Light and Love. xo

  1. This is a beautiful post Lydia and one that is important for each of us to read because while it is about drug and alcohol addiction, there are other important themes. Beliefs, Faith, Acceptance, Higher Power, Judgements and the troublesome stats of young girls and alcohol/drugs.

    Thank you for your heartfelt sharing of such human experiences.

    It's hard to read about your difficult struggle. The pain, while not the details, reminds me of my own. But you raise a light of hope with your insight and the way you lovingly risk sharing your own discoveries. Thank you.

  3. Thanks for sharing Lydia. I have struggled similarly and appreciate your self-disclosure. I too lost my brother to a drug overdose in Oct 2007. It was in my parents home (our childhood home) & my parents found his lifeless body that morning. I don't think I could have handled it had I been there. Instead of sobering up after this tragedy I sunk deeper into drugs, depression, codependency, abusive relationships & legal problems, until 2008 when I hit rock bottom & finally decided "Imma Do Me!" This included a partial letting go or surrender, I say "partial" because I sometimes slip or lose my footing as I try to take back control. I was never religious, but have become quite spiritual in the past 18 months, developing a practice that consists of daily meditation, law of attraction/Quantum Physics, Course in Miracles...reading Eckhart Tolle, listening to podcasts of OSHO, Tolle, HayHouse Radio, Healing Masters and consuming massive amounts of content related to Buddhism, Taoism and other Eastern philosophies. I am "addicted" to Spirituality & Positive Thinking now, rather than relationships (dysfunctional), drugs & People-pleasing! I am a work in progress, as we all are, but I am full of love & hope now instead of bitterness & despair. THANK YOU FOR BEING AN INSPIRATION TO ME!! Love, Light & Laughter <3 Lisa xoxo

    Remember,for every positive there is a negative and vice-verse.

    Love is an illusion, however, unconditional love is a human impossibility and does not exist.

  6. As an Atheist I must admit that Buddhism (which is not a religion but a way of life) is something that I have practiced in the past due to its peaceful attributes.

    Although, far more realistic, it does have its problems philosophically.

    One of the main principles of Buddhism, which I personally identify with, suggests that much of our lives are illusory and filled with suffering therefore we should do everything possible to ease that suffering during our time on the ant-farm, albeit through meditation, mantras, etc……

    The Upanishads are a little heavy on the brain though……LOL!

  10. I think people that are alcoholics have no self esteem or worth. That is where the real problems lies. I have never had a problem with alcohol because I am loved by my family and I worked hard to get where I got. Alcoholism is not a disease but an addiction just like any other drug. One example of a disease is cancer. There is a difference.

    ReplyDelete
  11. At least I understand you more now Lydia and I know now why you get angry at me because I disagreed with you politically. You have to find happiness in yourself because drugs and alcohol are only a mask to happiness. I do know what I am talking about because I have had relatives the were alcoholics and they had the same attitude. they were angry most of the time, they blamed everyone else for their problems and they were mostly of the liberal mindset. I saw a similar pattern with you lydia. There is nothing wrong or arrogant with thinking of number one first. If you can't do that, then you cannot truly love others.

    You guys really are angry about them, particularly the Mexicans.

    So we see, its not a "liberal" thing, regardless of Wizard-Voltrons pouting whine that it is.

    The "always angry" thing belongs to the lesser brained conservative, who struts around waving guns and signs condemning the evil "homos, liberals, Jews, Blacks, Hispanics and Socialists".

  20. I have been to some tea parties and I have never seen anger there, but concerned Americans that are worried about the future of our country. I have been with many conservatives and I will tell you that they are the nicest people that you ever want to meet. I have never seen a happy liberal unless it is at the expense of somebody's suffering. We believe in our constitution and will fight to preserve it at all costs. Tea parties are merely exercising their constitutional rights and are not angry but passionate. Liberals hate freedom or anything associated with it. that is why you see so many in rehab.

  33. Jesus Christ was a liberal and a socialist. He taught liberal values of peace, equality and brotherhood, and sharing our bounty in life with everyone, particularly the poor.

    So were the apostles of Christ, who with regards to earthly possessions had "all things in common". (See ACTS).


    So we see that the Christian Conservative, actually hates Jesus Christ and his Gospel.

    They want nothing to do with it.

  115. Which is why he can lie so easily that its the programs for the poor raising taxes on the rich, when in fact what we spend on the poor isn't enough to even come into the picture.

  116. So once more.

    1. Jesus commanded us to share our wealth with the poor.

    2. Liberals accept that and vote to share a portion of their tax dollars with the poor.

    3. Conservatives don't want to share any of their tax dollars with the poor, and vote against it.

    I certainly share your concern for your hard earned money. I myself dislike giving to those who prosper from the back-breaking efforts of the industrious and laugh about it all the way to the beer store.

    Nevertheless, we must give to those less fortunate and have good social programs as it is this humane quality that keeps us from evolving into indifferent barbarians.

    Not only is that a complete lie, as charity makes up such a small portion of our overall budget as to add up to a few pennies per person, but we all know Moo Moos never had a "hard earned" dollar in his life.

Getting people off the government dole is always better than having them dependent on some government entitlement.

    Christ's charity was not factored on ones status, or whether or not they "deserved" help.

    At least they don't pretend to be pious leaders of the world.

    They admit what they are. Fornicators, adulterers, drunkards and socialites.

    All of which Christ had no problem forgiving, or even dining with.

    Because these personal transgressions, are no where near as severe as the PIOUS HYPOCRISY of the HYPOCRITES who stand up and declare themselves the "MORAL MAJORITY", ...the "CHRISTIANS PARTY".....and who then proceed to defile and blasphemy everything Christ taught and commanded.

    Which is such an inane and lame argument that one can only respond that when you start giving every cent you now waste on toy models and booze, (and most likely cigarettes)to the poor, then come tell us what everyone else should do with their money.
