Insanity Beyond Understanding has many characters with addictive personalities. It highlights the selfish behavior, distorted thinking, the “my way or the highway” attitude of people who believe that the world revolves around them. How they refuse to be happy and how they love misery. How they are programmed to believe that they cannot live without sex. Drugs come before anything else in their lives. Once in a recovery situation how they frequently focus on developing a relationship with a “higher power” but fail to understand that without developing a relationship with themselves they cannot develop a relationship with anyone or anything else including a “higher power.” How they want to be accepted by others but refuse to accept themselves for who they are. They place their happiness in other people and material things. Immediate gratification is their sole goal. How easily they forget the consequences and pain that comes from the use of mood altering chemicals. How they live in the past or in the future, never in the present. How they worry constantly about their lives but do nothing to improve their situation. How they refuse to take responsibility for their own behavior and their tendency to blame others. How they look for shortcuts, for quick fixes, even though there are none.
