A Message from John
First Do No Harm
If you have done the Looking, mastered Self-Directed Attention, and have begun to see the value of Just One Look in your own life, there is often a natural impulse to describe to your friends what you have found. If that’s the case with you, STOP!
I beg you to stop because, unless you fully comprehend the true nature of what has happened in your own mind, you will almost always sow confusion and helplessness where you wanted to plant understanding and self-reliance.
The reason for this is that human minds born in fear are full of false notions about their own nature and their own misery, teeming with misleading ideas that masquerade as what’s needed. And those thought forms will persist until they perish from starvation as you decline to give them your attention. Until then, they will always counsel complexity and hopelessness in one form or another.
So, the only useful advice you can offer to those who have come to want what you have is to encourage them to follow the instructions on our website.

The Need for Alcohol Just Fell Away
I was involved with alcohol for many years and attended many AA meetings. I got the best results when supported by friends. After doing the act of Looking however this interest or need for alcohol simply fell away. I don't know exactly what happened and it wasn't really necessary that I know. The Looking along with the Self-Directed Attention exercise did the trick. I strongly suggest doing the latter, the Self-Directed Attention. It will help to alleviate some of the difficulty during the recovery process i.e. any mental anguish, anxiety over leaving alcohol, etc.

Are You in Recovery?
"Once you do the act of looking at yourself, you enter the period of recovery but, most likely, you won't even know that you are in recovery. Often things seem to get worse for a while. But if you start paying attention to how you relate to circumstances, you will begin to notice subtle differences in your behavior." John Sherman
