Well, Karl, I realize religion is the opium of the people, but I am not sure his faith is because of his recovery. he always has had faith. He did use that to help him dig himself out of his hole / hell, but to say that he adopted it to replace his heroin and he should ween himself off what has always been part of his world view is a little jaded. Don't feel a need to be the evangelist of cynicism when you deride him.
Who was deriding him? All I said was at some point he'll get it that it's up to him to stay clean and sober. Maybe it's just my twisted world view or that I've seen numerous people do and say the exact same things as him that makes me cynical.
