Now, before my mother reads this and freaks out – I have never taken heroin and don’t intend to.


But I should imagine if I did, I would enjoy it.


At least short term.


Until the hopeless addiction and misery kicked in.


But the actual taking of the heroin would, I imagine, feel nice.


It’s not worth it is it though?


It’s a bit like cake, crisps, biscuits, etc in that respect.


At RISE we’re big on helping people change the way they see their food.


And change their thought processes and habits.


But, we can only help change what people do and don’t like the taste of up to a point.


People often say of certain foods “But I just really like it”.


I can’t dispute that.


I’m just saying I don’t think it’s necessarily worth it.


Long term.


You know – when the misery kicks in.


I appreciate this is quite an extreme analogy.


But it makes you think, doesn’t?


Is it worth having something just because you like how it makes you feel while you’re having it.


I’ve got a good way about thinking about healthy eating that John, one of our Macc ninjas mentioned on Saturday.


I think it was John anyway – my memory of that part of the evening is a little fuzzy.



Much love,


Jon ‘Honestly mother – I’ve not tried heroin’ Hall and Matt ‘Me neither’ Nicholson


P.S. I’ve partly called this blog ‘I like heroin’ to see what sort of open rate it gets 😉
