This is my million dollar research question? I’m not comparing my experiences to Kramer as mine was self-inflicted, but a chronic heroin addiction brought to my knees. However, it has turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me as I am now relentlessly positive and happy while doing a PhD on the verbal (language and cognition) processes underpinning mindfulness as a treatment for addiction. I personally think that these changes in self are related to shifts in perspective of an individuals verbal history, thus resulting in a completely different view of thinking and how the world works!
