The First Step of Being Trained to Avoid becoming an Addict

The following is the opening page of our new Eternal Warrior: Addiction Prevention Program

Eternal Warriors
            Eternal Warriors is a training program designed to instill within your mind and spirit the power and tools needed to over ride temptations and possible addictions.  Before now, you can probably identify times when your moods/feelings have overpowered your values (i.e. “I value doing my homework, but I don’t feel like it.”).  This pattern just happens to be the most common decision making pattern that makes a person susceptible to addictions (i.e. “I value avoiding drugs/alcohol/pornography, but I don’t feel like controlling myself right now.”)  The more frequently you make decisions this way, the more likely you are to fall to temptation and/or addiction when the opportunity presents itself.
            As you go through the Eternal Warriors training program, you will strengthen your ability to have your values system overpower your moods again (i.e. “I value getting out off bed on time, and no matter how I feel, or what my mood is, I will do so.”) .  By the time you finish your training with Eternal Warriors, you will be able to follow through on the things you really care about (i.e. “I value eating in a healthy way, and I can make myself do so no matter how I feel.”)
            So, to begin, we must pick 3 target Behaviors that you want to perfect.  You will also be working to perfect 3 daily Actions that will be necessary to strengthen your mind and spirit to win against the attacks of Satan.  For the young man, we call these 6 things “MAN PoWeR”.  For you the young women, we call the 6 things “GiRL PoWeR.”
            We will start by choosing your 3 target Behaviors.  Feel free to look at the list of ideas that we have written up on page ____, or chose your own.  If you are under 18, you will get help from your parents to choose these 3 before you attend the class the first time.  If you are all growed up J (19 or older), you will chose your own in front of your peers in the class on your first day.  To start with, at least 2 of the 3 need to be behaviors that can be discussed in the group.  If you wish, 1 of the behaviors can be of a more serious, private nature, and you will not be required to disclose to the class what the 3rd behavior is.  Take time now to choose your 3 MAN/GiRL target Behaviors:
            Eternal Warriors training is designed to be on-going.  In other words, once you have perfected your 3 target behaviors (perfect for 28 consecutive days), you can choose 3 new target behaviors.  You are invited to continue attending Eternal Warriors until you have perfected as many behaviors as you and/or your parents wish.  
If you want more information on how to enroll yourself or a loved on in the Eternal Warriors program, call 877-HERO-877 or email
We are also looking for more Mentors who would like to be trained to teach these classes in your local community.  Let us know.
