Most people don't commit suicide by jumping from tall buildings,
says Lee M. Silverstein. "They do it inch-by-inch by abusing drugs,
alcohol or food; by smoking, gambling, over-working, over-spending
and not wearing car safety belts. Millions practice such systematic
suidide to avoid the problems of living."
People do the very best they can these days, he says, but they are
constantly bombarded with confusion wherever they turn, in work
and in personal relationships. As children we learn that when we feel
bad, we need to find something to make us feel better. Some of these
behaviors, these "bad habits," are destructive and become systematic suicide.
Every bad habit, however, can be replaced with a positive alternative, maintains Silverstein. Meditation, religion, counseling, therapy
and self-help groups are all tools that help develop wellness skills. He
also offers his own set of six guides for living that help improve the
quality of life. These guides, to be developed by each workshop participant for her/his individual situation, include:
• Accept responsibility for yourself
• Act responsibly
• Focus on the present
• Evaluate the consequence of every alternative
• "Do" your plan
• Do it over and over.
