  1. Very interesting. I especially like how it reiterates that it isn't for everyone, that it isn't quick and easy, and that it's more guide than program. I know at least 2 people in my life that may benefit from knowing about this. And finally, it gives me something to ponder regarding SL/game/internet addiction.

  2. I thought it was interesting too, and that's a great point about SL and other online addictions. It could work, but it would have to be the right kind of mindset to work well.

    I was actually thinking of a local friend who a year ago was very open about admitting he had a drinking problem, and he was doing well on the AA-style total abstinence track. But then he started making offhand remarks and jokes about drinking, where he seemed to have come around to the "I can handle a drink now and then again" POV. Cue a progression of unfortunate events that he's just getting over after 3 months, and I still don't think he's back on track.

    I don't think this MM thing would work for him, based on events in the last 8 months or so.
