All the talk on mandatory detox after Jacqui Lambie’s comments, and on Tony Abbott’s ‘dob in a dealer’ strategy makes me realize that I’m so on track with my ‘what did you get right on drugs’ recovery approach. Jacqui Lambie, Tony Abbott, even drug users are speaking clichés.

It’s an old script about what went wrong, or admitting you need help, or locking people up etc, it’s high time (pun intended) for new terminology and a 21st century approach to recovery. This was the aim of my book The Rebel’s Guide to Recovery. Why not take the core of the drug experience – awesome states – and go after that again but using chi rather than drugs? No dobbing, no dramas and everyone benefits.
