     Now THIS is an intelligent posting.  Too bad Mccabe thinks
I am such a schmuck and left the list.

     Ah well.

     Yes, Jim is hitting the nail almost on the head.  I would go
one step further though and say that if you were in really good
shape you should be able to GIVE yourself a headache WITH ALCOHOL,
and then get rid of it directly, not with pills.

     To see that this must be true, just ask youself what
you are doing IN a body in the first place.  It is one
thing for your body to have a headache, and quite another
for YOU to be in its head having one right long with of it.

     Clearly if you could disconnect yourself from your body,
YOU would have solved YOUR headache regardless of the bodies
condition.  THEN you could also solve the bodies headache, but
this might be harder since direct physical abuse was used to create
it in the first place.  But even so, once the spirit clears up his
own condition, he can keep the body feeling good in short order
regardless of what is done to the body including torture.

     But this is a ways up.

     One of the standards of a free being, is the ability to stay
out of his body WHILE it is being hurt.  If everytime the body is
hurt the being snaps into the head, then the being will feel the
pain too, and make matters much worse for the body.

     This snapping in when the body is hurt, comes from endless
eons of feeling sorry for bodies, and protecting bodies, and
owning bodies, and being repsonsible for bodies and BEING bodies (tsk tsk)

     Its not normal.  Except for Earthlings like me and thee that is.

     Anyhow, Sterlings main problem is he is not taking responsibility
for the headache.  He is BLAMING himself, but assigning the CAUSE
of the headache to the alcohol.  He does not see what HE is doing
WHILE he is drinking, that later kicks back as a headache when he
stops doing it.

     IF he could duplicate this doingness, later the next morning,
he might very well vanish the headache, because in reality it
is not the alcohol that causes the headache but the efforts that
take place every time he drinks.  Many of these efforts are
automatic and somewhat invisible not to mention ages old,
and it is non trivial cleaning up your mind and memory to
a point where you can do drugs freely and not suffer a kickback.

     But it can be done, but not over night.

     At least not at first.  But in the end, you should be
able to take and leave drugs alone so fast you don't know
where the wind is coming from.

     Of course a person who could do this, would not need drugs,
and would be able to do them without ill effects beyond the fact
that they are most of them poisons that tend to junk up your

     But splitting headaches are the result of much more.
Mainly stuff the person is FORGETTING while under the influence.

     As I said I am going to go into this in detail over the next
weeks and months.
