88% of my Cocaine Addiction Clients Had The Same Problem… They Still Recovered Though… #cocaine #2016 #stats and #facts

Yes 35 out of 40 were being held back with a longer recovery time, in some cases twice as long as would be expected.

Using a ‘hands on’ ‘new age’ approach to ex-addict led addiction treatment I was not surprised at this statistic nor was I surprised at the final outcome of my client satisfaction scores for 2015, from 42 clients polled on a 10 point questionnaire we scored a huge 96%.

Modern thinking on addiction leaving God, prayers, sponsors, day counting, trigger management, regression and self persecution has to be near its end surely.

Defect searching and handing oneself in as a failure is failing as rapidly as most rehab experiences. Pack it all away and take on an  a new approach.

The results are out and clear to see and in 2016 I’m going to prove these numbers again.

My approach is different to most but I am not alone in my methods. City boys, lost youngsters, bored housewives and baby boomers have all become ‘addicts’ in their words due to compounded trauma brought to bear by crap ‘Cocaine.’

I see it everyday in my work, when I’m getting right under the skin of my clients. (I talk to a lot of them everyday.) This is a factor in clients recovery success by the way… No question. It’s pretty obvious really, a once a week counselling chit chat or a weekly please save me meeting just doesn’t hit the heights of success I want to see for my clients. Be it a local lost soul I visit and work with daily or someone across the pond in a different timezone by video every other day the results and findings are all on a level.

This is what I found out in 2015:

  1. 90% of self confessed Cocaine ‘addicts’ by their own definition are carrying some form of unresolved trauma.

  2. 88%, 35 out of 40 clients worldwide are having their addiction trauma extended by adulterants causing them additional trauma and health issues preventing them from having a speedy recovery.

  3. 70% of all surveyed have tried and relapsed following traditional addiction treatments; NA, Counselling, Rehab and Abstinence based discipline.

  4. 85% of all clients surveyed found a hands on ex-addict approach helped them get over the finish line.

  5. 83% of clients found a structured daily action plan with well timed goals very useful in quitting.

  6. Average time spent in guided recovery… 13 weeks.

  7. The American War on Drugs  is a capitalist venture that is still ruining ill people’s lives.

  8. God isn’t going to save addicts from addiction. The addict is.

  9.  Life and behavior coaching are instrumental in the transitions from ‘binge’ and ‘abuse’ to ‘use’ to ‘abstinence.’

  10. All client’s offered the help guide Addiction Unplugged – How To Be Free by John Flaherty found it ‘useful’ or more impacting at early – mid stage post addiction. This document is essential reading where trauma needs to be addressed.

So, 9 out of 10 addicts have some underling trauma, yes you guessed it, mainly from childhood. This is not news. Doesn’t make sense to send these people to jail or demonise them does it? Nope, but we’re still doing it.

Truth is, none of these findings surprise me… Not even the headline; I saw this coming years ago. It’s what made me an addict, what kept me an addict and now makes me someone who helps others walk away from a Coke addiction. The more savvy substance counselor will know, older functioning users know and  the Police know but no ones connecting quality with delayed recovery. The speed, the sugar, the tranquilizer the other shit that is taking the weight… anything from 20-100% in your average street coke bag is doubling the recovery time on average now in the UK and it seems to be following close behind in the States.

With this knowledge substance abuse students can hopefully bear this in mind when helping ill addicts finds their way home. Just like I’m doing.

Want a speedy exit from powder addiction into recovery and THEN get ‘recovered?’ Then call me… I’ll charge you what you would normally pay for a few hours Friday night buzz and I’ll get under your skin till your back on track. I will armour you with everything you need to know about your addiction and work with you to pick up on the path that you left and I’ll have you in better shape. But you must, must want to stop. My methods are unorthodox but Orthodoxy is an old world for old times. Old approaches to addiction are so flaky and I disprove them daily.

You’ve  got to get back on track to rediscover yourself; armed with all the knowledge, guidance, fitness, mindfulness and some appreciation for life I get my clients to face their demons head on and deal with that trauma that holds them back. No counting the days clean, no avoiding people and places, no praying. Just doing and accomplishing, embracing life again we work together to fill the gaps that Cocaine no longer delivers on and hey lets face it even when it was good… It never lasted. Cocaine was a champagne celebration luxury that is now so hard to find that the gamble in scoring no longer stacks up. It now only serves as a tiny band aid for pan relief that doesn’t provide a fix. I said the police are aware of this issue, why on earth they get so excitable about putting away dealers of highly pure coke, they should be actively tracking down the people who cut up the product and who are the root causes of this new problem.

You want some real unorthodox advice? You really want out of the coke game for good? Save the money you normally spend on trauma inducing crap powder and after 3 months go to Peru or Bolivia, take in some sights, get inspired, make your last hit a real one then step on the plane and leave that shit where you found it. It will totally cleanse out all that legacy garbage powder in your system and enable you to gently slide out of the game and back into the life you’re supposed to be living.

Not Unorthodox… Call it New Orthodox… Want results? See the Coke Exit Guide in the strictest confidence. Now working with HR professionals as well as individuals.

Day 14: Cocaine Exit – You’re On Your Own – The M.O. – Our Modus Operandi and My Magnum Opus

#Qday010116

Don’t worry if you missed first few days, you can catch up by clicking through the recent posts link in the top right hand corner of this page.

Make me believe in you
Show me your love can be true
Do anything you want me to do
Just make me believe in you

Keepin’ filled with all your temptation
You know it leaves me with no inspiration
Another chart playin’ on me
May have a hard time succeedin’, you see

You don’t seem quite like the others
Respectin’ me and your sisters and brothers
It would be awful, awful sad
To give love and you treat me so bad

Make Me Believe In You – Curtis Mayfield and Patti Jo


Day 14… The M.O.

We’re at the end of the road… I know for a lot of you this could be the beginning of a journey on a super highway… Well done… You did it all yourselves, I’m just the big mouth with plenty to say on everything and certainly I got loads more to say on addiction and getting right…

Hopefully the future holds rewarding straight days filled with warmth and love for yourself and others, staying busy with a constant stream of contentment and accomplishment. A good diet, fitness, an open mind and happy daily slave activity that you enjoy bringing reward and comfort to your home. Take the personal development and scheduling discipline tips forwards, god only knows I have to do as I say and not as I used to do… I cannot afford to put 4 hours a day into detailed guiding and insight for others now but this blog shall stay out there in the internet ether for others to follow our lead. I’m now working 3 jobs, not as planned but out of necessity… I’m just tripping out on the new super highway myself so you’ll always have someone here you can to relate to and indeed please continue with the feedback, specific requests and requests for assistance.. pjk2011@gmail.com

I shall be taking things forward and dishing out my Magnum Opus in the form of some new thinking on addiction; science, conscious and sub, trauma management, its timeline, religion, alternative healing, recovery and being recovered… I shall recount the high times and high jinks I got up-to all over Europe and wider… The incredible drug fueled youth movement I played my part in, the love, money, friends, family, brain cells and time lost coming full circle to live a clean life when I never, ever thought I’d be the same again. The jury’s out as to whether I’m recovered or not. I’ve had arguments with those who want to keep us down as ex/-addicts and I’ve had the good fortune to connect with the thought leaders at the forefront of addiction knowledge who with me as an ally are going to slay these dinosaurs of the dark ages and expose them for what they are… Words and interpretations are pure semantics… I control my mind and my heart rules… This is the crux of the matter.

You don’t want me going round claiming to be ‘recovered’ because YOU want to keep me in a pit of recovery that feels, looks, tastes and smells just like addiction itself… Pardon me for getting excitable but fuck you because my way works, it works for others and were leaving you behind..

Its human nature for men to be competitive sorts; your men friends, your best friend, your siblings and family men…

They wanna see you do good but

That’s what it is… Westernised competitiveness… Whilst I have tried to meditate the shit out of the ego in me, it appears I can only consciously manage it down, I’m still the big, gregarious bear I ever was.. but no mistaking when I was suffering the illness of addiction I was way out of control.. I made my mistakes, I asked for forgiveness, I finally addressed my past.. If you engage me and play me down with the stigma of the past, If you put one on me, make sure, with no mistake I am back and right on top of my game. I will no longer have anyone; near, dear or otherwise make me feel an inferior citizen nor second class ex-junkie ticket because its easy for you to play that game because you don’t really like yourself nor the improvements you see in me. 

Ex-addicts please take note of the above.. This shit will happen to you on a regular basis… Like me, get a tight circle of like-minded souls around you and fly like birds of a feather, merrily gliding above at a great height away from spoilers, detractors and haters… Please though, do it with style and grace… Keep your side of the street clean. Leave them behind… 

Home at last… 🙂 


  1. For today we say no to Cocaine or your problem drug or drink.
  2. Offer gratitude for your roof, sustenance, family, work, health etc etc.
  3. Keep the previously documented discipline’s of; health, fitness, supplements, organisation, personal development, kindness and the spreading of love, keep your meditation game tight and look into tapping and alternative healing. Consider a little Buddhism in your life. Its all about you as a God and only involves you doing the right thing for others and you.
  4. Retain the guide book for future reference… You will forget to remember how to control your mind chatter for a while to come yet.. That’s why John Flaherty wrote the book…  Addiction Unplugged – How to be free.
  5. Anyone still feeling conscious or subconscious trauma pangs that you think require a hit to fix should talk to me or seek an alternative healer or counselor for a little help. You have to deal with your pain. I had mine extracted subconsciously a while ago, I couldn’t move forward till it was done… Talk to me: pjk2011@gmail.com
  6. Pay it forward… Tell others how you got clean. Refer them to me if needing help.

Goodbye for now… Reach for new heights in the new you and keep working on yourselves… Love strength and energy to you all…

Day 14: Cocaine Exit – You’re On Your Own – The M.O. – Our Modus Operandi and My Magnum Opus

Day 7: Cocaine Exit – Use (not abuse) of other drugs – youth culture – the problem with real Coke…

#Qday010116

Don’t worry if you missed first few days, you can catch up by clicking through the recent posts link in the top right hand corner of this page.

Brothers, Sisters, one day we’ll all be free… from fighting, violence, people crying in the street… When the angels from above fall down and spread their wings like doves , we’ll walk hand in hand… Sisters, brothers we’ll make it to the Promised Land… – Promised Land – Joe Smooth.


ex- addicts…

Promised land was an anthem of the rave scene… The rave scene was one of the greatest youth movements second only to the flower power children 20yrs previous to the 1989 kick off of Chicago and Detroit house that England heard, took and owned.

A time that made white boys and girls dance on a skills par with their black counterparts.. Brought them together as Brothers and Sisters… Boys put down their pints and football rivalry fists and swapped them for late night dancing marathons, pills and the loving embrace of a stranger with excitability in conversation…

Northen Soul was a beta test with speed fuelling that equally fabulous time in the nightlife world, disco was slick with its coke soundtrack but nothing eclipsed the zenith that MDMA tablets brought to house music.

Not long would pass before I became a gold medalist drug user… I had a South London contact who was rocking warehouses and empty City offices with beautiful dove pills. I brought them home to Coventry, many of them… A time was had and I made friends quickly.

Interestingly enough at this point whilst acquaintances were munching these pills for fun and getting into a fair standard of powder I was happy with a half or a one, so powerful were these biscuits. I saw coke going on and thought ‘fuck that, £20 for an all night heady buzz vs £100 or more for a short term, arrogant high from South America.’ Wish I’d kept that view. But what’s done is done… Hey I’m out of the Coke game… But am I out of the MDMA game? Am I out of the Ganja game? Am I out of the booze game? No… is the short answer.

Alcohol is not a problem, MDMA is not a problem, ganja for me, is not a problem. That’s addiction for you… If you see it as a problem, then you’re best of out of that game.

Am I a hypocrite? Yes, in the eyes of addiction expert dinosaurs… DO these other substances cause me harm… possibly. Does my recreational use harm others? No. Does the use of alcohol, weed and and MDMA cause others trauma and make them nasty towards others… Maybe.

Were all putting shit in our bodies that isn’t for the best; nicotine, caffeine, sugar, fats… booze and fags for sure are an have put a big strain on health resources and the well being of users and their loved ones.

I’m long down the road when it comes to my physical well being, but I’m working on that. I’m only able to do so because my mental well being is in order. I am operating and functioning at a high level, I am helping others, I am very awake and my heart is open. I am no longer an addict. This is paradoxical.

In my world, which is far removed from traditional 12 step recovery servitude. I am alive, well and happy. No lifetime in recovery for me, no lasting self persecution under an old school mandate as an ex-addict zombie. I’m well, motivated and up for dragging you along with me… We’ve just done 7 days… its a milestone, celebrate how far you’ve come.

So that’s Ecstasy dealt with.. or is it… In this world of pharmaceutical dominance, war and chaos, ‘drugs’ like; mandy, marijuana, LSD,  mushrooms, ayahuasca etc etc are coming to the fore and showing concrete signs of healing and reversing disease and trauma. Shame the war on drugs and backward Governments are holding things back… The levy’s about to break though… Look at California and other states, Portugal, Switzerland, Ireland… Soon the UK will be the last bastion of denial in this regard. Aside from ridiculous radical nations that like to execute people for smoking a plant ffs. These clown, tin pot leaders and dictators need a spliff more than any stoner!

I want a Cali lifestyle… I want to go to a dispensary and request a strain that will remove angst, help sleep, make me laugh like an old school haze or white widow… I want to drive a beautiful dear friend of mine with MS to get something to remove her pain like no pharma bullshit would do. I want to give effected soldiers a dose of MDMA so that they can function and love themselves and their families again following the trauma of PTSD. I want to see babies getting cannaboid extracts from Cannabis instead of chemotherapy.. You know where I’m coming from.

Clearly, now I’m  all cleaned up, I have a balanced view… Why can’t the UK and US just monetise this fucking industry and create a wealth of work that will bring addiction treatment 100 yrs forward from where we are today? Guess we’ll just have to wait.

I’ve covered the reasons for our UK readers giving up synthesised Cocaine. You’ve all quit and have had enough… right. 🙂

I need to give some more thought to this because State-siders your problem is wholly different. I know for a fact I could fly into NYC, score in Brooklyn or Queens… Hire a dream muscle vehicle, stop off in Miami for some grade A shit and merrily tour across the South-lands to LA and then pick up some more… Kick up my heels in Venice or Malibu, large it, then get on a plane and leave it behind me with a smile on my face. That’s the outlook of a drug user… not abuser. There, thats half the battle…

It’s too simplistic I know but I guess if you’ve got too much time and money on your hands then good Coke can get to be a bit of a problem. Sure, jump to crack for a heavier hit and you wont need Flava Flav to tell you what time it is… Strung out, arrogant, functioning or non, US citizens you got a different set of Coke challenges but the same rules apply. If the pearly flake of Peru or Columbia is causing you trauma; is making your partners desert you, if you know you’re no longer a good citizen and your bank balance is low, if you have a feeling you got a problem… Then jump on the quitting train, your exit will be in a first class carriage by comparison to your European counterparts… We’re in economy 3rd seats… Standing… On our knees in somecases.That said drug dealers are greedy fuckers and I have heard that the cuts are getting bigger and similar to ours. Probably time to kiss the old you goodbye..


 

 

Day 7…

  1. Milestone. Well done… You’ve walked the longest mile. The next 7 will also be tricky but not as bad. You’ll find the good day – bad day routine should change to a good day – good day – bad day thing. Don’t stop taking these giant steps because you’re nearly home. So proud of you!
  2. For today we say no to Cocaine or your problem drug or drink… Yawn!
  3. Offer gratitude for your roof, sustenance, family, work, health etc etc. How about spreading the gratitude love you’re realising as you get more grounded by vocalising it some more. Whenever the opportunity arises… Give thanks and praises however, wherever.
  4. Some heavy shit… If at this stage and during the next 14 days you happen to be still feeling deep trauma; anger, depression, lethargy and find yourself in tears then you are probably carrying some sub-conscious psychological baggage.
    1. I want you to know I’ve been there and it isn’t very nice, but it is surmountable.
    2. I strongly advise you to review my suggested meditation techniques (click links, top right hand corner and read previous days.)
    3. Seek advise, contact me or speak to someone you may know who can recommend a legitimate and proven Eastern healer, for those in Middle England I have that person as a fellow guide. She is a God in my view.
    4. Seek alternative, holistic insight into your trauma… During my exit from Coke dependency a year ago my healer and I had made great progress but things stalled now I know this was due to a mental shift that I could not remove myself. I got hypnotised and then put into deep relaxation. It sure was a freaky encounter. I awoke in tears and then expressed endless thanks as I felt her remove something from my gut that I exhaled out upon awakening I almost lost conciousness again so big was the demon I’d breathed out.
    5. If I’d have read this shit elsewhere I’d be very sceptical. I cannot tell you how much I now endorse alternative approaches to wellness.
    6. Give this thought if you are in trauma. 
  5. Compose your schedule  as discussed yesterday and set up 5 or 6 day calendar plans to include hourly block as per thus:
    1. Gratitude – Meditate – Todays to-do review of yesterday
    2. Complete toughest tasks ahead for the day.
    3. Lunch – Nature Walk – Smoothie / Sushi / Salad… Yuck 🙂
    4. Afternoon work tasks priority 2
    5. Personal development / research hour
    6. Review – Tomorrow’s to-do list
    7. Chill – Quality time – reward.
    8. Meditate again for 10 mins (if you’re digging this activity.)
  6. Vitamins, smoothie, vegatables, white meat, oily fish and lots of water on the menu if you can.
  7. If you’re that way inclined and feeling this Eastern vibe then pick this up on Netflix… eye opening docu-movie. Awake: The Life of Yogananda
  8. Look yourself right in the eye in your bathroom mirror and be proud of yourself ex-addict. Have a good chat with your exit partner / confident. If you’re on your own feel free to feedback to me here or at pjk2011@gmail.com .
  9. Keep reading Addiction Unplugged – How To Be Free
  10. Learn to delete all those random negative thoughts that come into your head… Avoid blocked mental paths by referring tricky thoughts to the heart. The heart knows, the mind is just an over powered computer that likes to think it has all the answers. Rarely has it had experience or seen the things we worry about. Thank you, thank you endlessly John Flaherty for this knowledge.

March on soldiers, the bridge is over…
