I can usually tell within the first five minutes of a prospective client call whether this person has “bottomed.” When they are truly sick and tired of being sick and tired.
You see, I know something about bottoms. As a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, (you never truly recover) I know when the bargaining starts and when the bullshit begins.
I know when the victim starts laying out the parameters of their own rescue that the conversation, at least for me, is over.
I will change the subject and move on to generalities. There is no use, they’re not ready.
I will not attach myself to someone merely for money because the drag on the process will outweigh the benefits.
Saving a drowning person can be risky. Likewise, saving drunks from themselves can have dire consequences.
As I will tell anyone inquiring of my services, you have to be ready. You have to be genuinely open to changing how you feel about your body and your health.
You need to be willing to change for the better. Mentally and physically.
Or else you will spend the rest of your life confused and unhappy like my friend here.
You need to hit your bottom. When you do, call me.
