Quote by Carre Otis
Part of treatment for drugs and alcohol is you abstain from these, but with eating disorders you can't abstain from food so the treatment is longer than drugs and alcohol.
This quote highlights a key difference between the treatment of substance abuse and eating disorders. In drug and alcohol addiction treatment, abstinence from the addictive substances is often a fundamental requirement. However, when it comes to eating disorders, complete abstinence from food is not possible or feasible. This fundamental distinction results in the need for a lengthier treatment approach for eating disorders. The treatment for eating disorders typically involves a longer and more complex process that focuses on rewiring attitudes and behaviors related to food, body image, and self-esteem.
The average American is just like the child in the family. You give him some responsibility and he is going to amount to something. He is going to do something.

Government is taking 40 percent of the GDP. And that's at the state, local and federal level. President Obama has taken government spending at the federal level from 20 percent to 25 percent. Look, at some point, you cease being a free economy, and you become a government economy. And we've got to stop that.
