I communicate directly and assertively. Im not trying to come off as combative. In our society addicts are looked down upon, so people tend to get their panties in a bunch about the word, but's its the most accurate way to describe why these people are offended by me.
One of your points- cheating leads to more due to addiction really resounded to me and actually helped me shape my next 30 days. (I can't go back to 20%, even 5%). Working on your delivery might actually help out more people, if that is your goal.
However, realize that this is a board for Primal Blueprint, which allows for 20%. That 20% is why I gave it a try. If it was 100% I would not have, and would never have arrived at this point. There is some value to the 20%, even if ongoing, for the best outcome, some people may need to abandon that.
