Adam Williams is an accredited, registered counsellor and an accredited registered Master Life Coach as well as a Globally experienced Business Coach to the ‘Therapy World’ and Public Speaker. He has written and had published, two books shown on the opposite page and is currently working on the very much anticipated; “The Adam Plan”. Adam says; “I wrote ‘The Adam Plan’ after writing a draft for a new book which was more autobiographical, called; ‘Re-creating Adam’. I had seen on the news that in my neighbouring village, a driver—high on cocaine—mounted the pavement at 120mph and killed two young boys outright. I was enraged but also quickly saw the urgent need for an easily accessible system that works to cure addiction. So I decided to make the book less about me and focused it’s attention on trying to help the targeted readership instead. The world would be a

better place for it!” Adam, 46, up until just over a decade ago, was himself a serious addict, alcoholic and subsequently ended up mentally unwell. He had spent nearly two years in Prison, due to addiction, only to live on the streets for two years, upon his release. “I had a 20 year, daily habit and ritual of committing crime and buying drugs. I died 3 times (and was saved) and tried to commit suicide twice before ‘waking up’ one day!” Adam continues. He NOW operates a Specialist Team, hosts a weekly Live Streaming online webinar called GTI Fridays (Get Thoroughly Inspired), runs a Thursday night ‘therapy and comfort group’ for addicts, alcoholics and ex-prisoners called; ‘Going Straight’ and also writes books and courses, whilst running a regional ‘health’ magazine! Adam understands the importance of


receiving help from an ‘experienced’ support network, people who have been addicts or have experienced the hardship of Prison life. Without this network, things may progress to the deepest dependence, as Adam calls it, ‘The Bottom of the Pit’. There are many types of addict, yet most addicts, including Adam at one point of his life, will, do or did experience a personality disorder or have a psychotic episode at some point and for varying lengths of time.

“There is nothing more terrifying than experiencing a 3 month bout of paranoid, delusional psychosis brought on by daily drug use!” Commenting on the moment he realised he needed help, Adam says; “It took being repeatedly beaten up mentally, experiencing the desperate loss of my job, then house, then wife and kids, before my ‘denial’ shifted and I became ready for change. When you at the bottom of the pit, you want to keep suffering due to the constant guilt that reminds you in every sober moment just how disgusting and unworthy of life you are. Fear then causes us to continue the drugs and drink so that we blot out the guilt...only for it to return when we wake up again!” “I have always been a deep thinker and when you are in this type of place, the

thinking becomes more repetitive. I always thought, ‘what’s the meaning of life?’ and then one day, I had an epiphany that told me the answer. It was so powerful and vivid, that I grabbed a pencil and paper and started writing what had arrived in my mind. Four weeks later, I was clean, off the streets and preparing for college! It truly was an epiphany.” Adam shares his experience in more detail in the books below but would love for you to read ‘The Adam Plan’, only if you want to truly change forever. Order it today by visiting: www.theadamplan.co.uk. Contd….


….Adam continues; “Before my ‘wake up’ epiphany and moment, I had been begging ANY higher power that may exist to help me. I had become in complete denial, I was genetically corrupted, a selfish manipulator due to my indoctrination and a ‘lying’ fraud of a man due to the necessity to survive. “My values were incredibly low and I felt as if there was no help from the Government. I rang the crisis team (CPFT) for help as I was feeling as if I wanted to hurt myself. They genuinely said; ‘sorry, we can’t help you unless you have already cut yourself’. So I did. I gave myself 480 stitches that day!” That was a turning point for one person!

of de-criminalising drug use and putting more funding into projects that help addicts, alcoholics and ex-cons to ‘go straight’ in a world where they are treated as human beings with equal rights. I have created a UNIQUE system that will help anyone get control back over their lives, gain a purpose and begin to re-build what they have lost.”

Who do you see yourself as?

“I feel that I am THE ‘GO-TO-GUY’ if you have suffered any kind of loss, had a problem with drugs, alcohol or any issues that are consequences of these actions such as Prison and the subsequent lack of opportunity that is available to people in So, where do we go from here that is these categories!”

positive, exciting, creates purpose and Adam is always ‘On-Call’, 24/7/365, for more importantly, works!? anyone who needs to simply stop addiction “I want to tackle ’head on’, the importance and change their lives, forever!


Here are four small favours that those who don't hate themselves can do for those of us who do. When two people with low self-esteem are together, many things are mutually, intuitively understood, even if we've never openly discussed our self-esteem. For instance, if anything goes even slightly wrong, we both know we're instantly, viciously blaming ourselves. And we'll probably try to soothe each other — because, sensing our shared insecurities, we want to ease each other's pain: Admittedly, this is partly because we each think we deserve to suffer most, but partly also because we are uniquely hyper-aware of pain.

And we who tend to hate ourselves will help each other out with tiny, mutually understood favors such as not asking Why do you always order the same ice-cream flavor? or offering reality checks such as This lesson is really confusing or The server with the ponytail seems mean. But when we are with people who don't hate themselves, we do things they don't understand. This is because we think and feel things they don't.

Those of us who are on the healing path know what a long, hard, landmine-larded road it is. So while we're on it, here are four small favors that those who don't hate themselves can do for us. I'm not asking you to work magic or act like saints. Nor am I asking you to be our therapists — unless by chance you are, and that's your job, for which we're paying you. I know we can be

Harsh and heartless as this get better — with your help. sounds, every now and then we need you to just make certain simple decisions for us — which sweater to wear, which sandwich to order — and be done with it. That's because “ Those of us who are on being asked to choose from a range of options, especially in public or when our the healing path know choice might affect others, triggers some of what a long...road it is! “ us into mute paralysis. That's because we were told somewhere back there that we always spoiled everything, that we were stupid, selfish or incompetent. 1. Forgive us. Not for having low selfesteem, which is no more our fault than Our actions were constantly questioned, having freckles or asthma, but for all those penalized or mocked. So now, asked to countless things we're constantly choose between egg salad and pastrami, we apologizing about. Reflexive apology — panic: not just because thanks to our past bleating I'm sorry! as often as other people history we are afraid to choose but also blink — is yet another side effect of self- because we are so ashamed of being seen loathing, because some of us were told too this way, appearing (we think) infantile and often and/or too terrifyingly that every bad helpless. Yes, we need to learn decisionthing from earthquakes to spilled milk to making skills: at least, at first, in private and Mommy's illness was our fault. Now we alone. Until then, lend us some relief: Either apologize when rain falls on parades or flat-out decide for us or gently help us strangers trample on our toes. When you choose. hear us do this, tell us "No problem" or 4. Tell us that everything will be OK, "That's OK" or even "It's not your fault." because we strongly suspect it will not. We 2.

Setting aside perilous options such as self-harm, anorexia or drugs, which "raise" our selfesteem synthetically and/or addictively, does playing music make us feel more powerful? Are we fully relaxed in forests, doing math, and/or around our cousin Ed? If you can find out without feeling (or being) intrusive — because, hey, we have boundary issues — ask us what these things might be and why. Then, refusing to let us talk ourselves out of another good thing, take us there.


Relationships are hard. Romance fades, our best friends drive us crazy, and families (the holidays may especially remind us) are minefields just ready to go off over a late night game of Scrabble. Most of us are lucky enough to be free to leave these relationships: we can move away from home, let friendships fade, and get divorces. That freedom is wonderful and important, but it also means that we can avoid some of the most rewarding experiences of long-term relationships that survive our worst selves. Fortunately (and painfully), we are all born in to one relationship that we can never get away from, no matter how we try: our relationship with ourselves.

The choices we make about how we treat our bodies, what we do with our time, how we talk to ourselves, and who we spend time with matter—a lot. The world is a difficult place to live in, and sometimes the things we do to feel better in the moment—eat, drink, have sex, binge Netflix—can have longer term consequences when we stop using them for pleasure and start using them to escape our inner world. It’s natural to want to escape ourselves from time to time, and we all do it. Sometimes we do need to take a quick break from the voices in our heads. There’s nothing wrong with that—until we go past the point of pleasure and into numbness. This can work for a


while, but a joylessly numb life can get pretty boring, and even if the mind can take it, the body will often rebel against its neglect after a while.

okay. Part of the practice is forgiving ourselves and being gentle when we falter. The best thing we can do is start somewhere.

I am sometimes grateful and sometimes really annoyed that I have a very sensitive physical body. If I don’t eat well, sleep enough, or give myself time to process difficult emotions, my body will find some way to let me know. I tried to drink and party my way through a major breakup once, and got slammed with a three-week flu with nothing to do but feel my feelings. Later, I was overdoing it at work, anxiously avoiding any quiet time by myself, and I got strep throat. Three times. The fourth time I tried to do that my back went out. I can lie well enough to my mind, at least for a while, but my body doesn’t tend to let me get away with it for very long. Pain is an excellent teacher because it forces us to change something.

So we acknowledge the pain. We let ourselves feel it. We explore its edges and see if it can teach us what needs to change. We can make small choices that are genuinely kind—not momentarily relieving, but genuinely loving— for our bodies, our minds, or our relationships. And when we don’t, when we slip back to our comforting escapes, we forgive ourselves and try again tomorrow.

So we have a choice: do the work of being in a loving, healthy, committed relationship with ourselves or suffer the rest of our lives with an internal roommate we hate. A lot of people choose the second option—it’s unquestionably easier. But over time, the body or the mind can rebel against its mistreatment and try to start to force us to work on this relationship. Either way, leaving isn’t an option.

It’s certainly not always easy to choose to turn love, presence, and compassion towards our own selves. But when we choose the path of loving commitment and turn it inwards, we end up meeting the truest, most lasting love of our lives.

I am always so surprised at how prevalent drugs are in the yoga and meditation world because many great teachers including Yogi Bhajan (Kundalini Yoga), Swami Satchidananda (Integral Yoga), and the Dalai Lama (Buddhism) prescribe a completely drugfree lifestyle for practitioners.

myself through the use of an outside substance. As you look at your jar of nutmeg with new fascination, let me share with you this sense of self in the nutmeg high was short lived—as I believe it is with all drugs. Feeling the intense effect of the nutmeg on my kidneys, I dropped it after only a few experiences.

I have grown up in a Kundalini yoga and Sikh lifestyle free of drugs for the most part. As a teenager, I did experiment with the use of nutmeg, which can give you quite a high in large quantities. Half a nut did the job for me. I share this with you so that you can know that I have been there—longing to just laugh and be

As I entered into early adulthood I found that I could process stress and find a source of inner strength and calm from my meditation practice. So, if we were friends sitting down having a conversation about this and you were into having a beer after a stressful day at work to wind down, I could tell you that


with a few meditation tools under your belt you could save a whole bunch of money because you wouldn't need your beer anymore. However, I would at this point have to complete the story, because this is only a part of it. Without the use of drugs, the meditation experience is by far much deeper. To reach a deep state of meditation requires going through the channels of the self. It requires passing through the sensations of pain, anguish and desperation. To ignore these sensations would not take you to the vital interior of your being. To have successfully passed through them, in a conscious meditative practice between you and God, is the sweetest victory and sensation I have ever known. But it's not just the pain that one has to pass through. It is also that we must be in a state of complete perception. To feel

the air, to hear the sounds around us, to know and sense what is about to unfold, is all a part of meditation. Drugs of any form not only alter but also dampen our senses. It's like walking around with a pillowcase over your head—sleepy to the reality of life. Sure, who needs reality anyway, right? That is certainly an approach that is quite tempting to take. However, I am with the Buddha on this one. Take me in, let me go through the pain, in my own real self way, so that I can be the kind and beautiful person that I am, and live a life not only of no regrets, but one of service, love and joy. Yes, joy! Because that is by far my favourite sensation of a drug-free meditation. Contact Sunni at our surgery.

Your weight gain and belly fat can be linked to toxins in your liver. The liver has two important functions. It not only detoxifies your blood, but also METABOLIZES fat. When the liver becomes overworked and fatty, we begin gaining weight and experience other health issues. When your body is stressed, these stored toxins are released from fat cells which can lead to cellular damage and more toxins that your liver will not able to process. Toxins can also be stored in brain tissue, muscle tissue, nervous tissue, and even in cellular membranes. Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton states that the root cause of all weight gain is directly related to our own natural weight control system being overloaded and poisoned with toxic chemicals that we come in contact through our skin care, food, cleaning products and general environment.
