#30 The Grant Study


When looking at the Grant Study, one of the longest multi-generational studies done, a few facts stand out immediately. That’s the basis of this podcast, along with about 5 other studies along the same lines to back it up. What is of particular importance is how glaring problems with alcohol are. Add smoking to this and you have two of the biggest causes of premature illness and death.

Many people try to quite smoking and replace it with overeating. Its just swapping one addiction with another. People don’t actually gain weight when they stop smoking, they substitute. There is a good comparison to be made between quiting smoking, changing your diet or giving up alcohol and drugs. Tackling any one of these can be hard work, with sketchy out comes.

If your lifelong quest is happiness, take a listen. Hope you enjoy the podcast.


This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.
