Literature of nearly any kind, exception perhaps for airplane evacuation pamphlets and condum instructions, deserver a grand powerful entrance. For reasons you will soon discover, this passage sadly is not (intentionally) destined for such esteemed reading. You have my word, we over compensated in the sections ahead.

Choices, by the tens of thousands, made by the Functioning Development Team have been done so with immeasurable care, immense prejudice. And the occasional fist full of disdain for title we’ve had to endure throughout our recovery. FUNCTIONIONG, as a result, is not your standard vanilla taste

testing, khaki spice latte literature.

pleat, pumpkin of addiction

FUNCTIONING is not designed as corollary or in unison to 12 Steps, The Blue Book, NA AA HA OEA. It is not scribed by the almighty PhD handed. Fuck we had to cheat Mavis Beacon in order to pass (joke). We’re of the mind this is one of our greatest calculated advantages. Finally, FUNCTIONING is NOT autobiographical, a collection of memoirs, dear dope diary transcription… Early on we felt strongly in avoiding chronology and narrative. We can empower our readers much more deeply, effectively when they’re not inevitably trying to personify with characters and situation.


Before Before we we start start

C

onsider a scenario in which your mother, your wife, your longest, oldest friend (these should be three separate people, it’s not that kind of scenario) tell you gravity has been banished. Should you decide to continue relying on gravity you are all but guaranteed an ugly death. Or at the very least, you’d be shunned by everyone you ever cared for which is for many worse than dying In all seriousness, try and get your head aAround having to give up gravity, and everything it affects in your life. Sleeping, walking, eating, fucking, nothing will ever be the same. How do you start to accent that let alone find success. Where do you start? We got you. Read on!


UPDATES IN PROGRESS We are still crossing T’s and dotting lowercase J’s, some sections will appear incomplete.

DATA DOGMA Desensitized, over stimulation, have become less "a new part of life" and more the norm. Meaning: most young adults today don't have that same Barney Fife Green Acres better days image stored in their memory banks. What was over stimulation to most Boomers is plain old stimulation to X,Y,/ and Milleniials. The younger portions of society arent shocked by the things their parents are shocked by. And this trend is gaining everyday in the 40 and up crowd everyeday. Data and charts, even images aren’t going to be enough to get people active in solving addiction.

FUNCTIONING attempts to solve this in a number a ways. This is not a static book. Using QR Codes and smart phone software the pages of FUNCTIONING have been designed to come alive at your promt. Content has been connect to real human beings, communities, and even you. This is not a static book, far from it. FUNCTIONING should feel very much alive. The decisions made have been done so to jarr you, to serve as a punch in the stomach. And the old way wouldn’t cut it.

Think less "Hallmark Moment" and more Twilight Zone. When you start connecting dots the right way it's dread, anxiousness in your stomach. It might even be Hitchcock's Hour of Terror for some.

So long as you feel something jarring enough enraging enough, then you're ready to fight.Anis mossinvendi aut volore moleni berspienis ut explatur senihicim quatiusciur accus.
