Addiction comes in all forms. Psychology Today, defines it as a condition in which a person engages in the use of a substance or in a behavior for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeatedly pursue the behavior despite detrimental consequences.
Greg Nance found himself is such a place for seven long years. As he explains, there were weekends where he would engage with thirty to forty drinks. He became the life of the party⏤except it was no party!
In Greg’s words he explains the start of a life-chapter that changed everything. “My grandfather Charlie Nance (Marine at Iwo Jima and an incredible man who lived with us growing up and inspired me daily) had a debilitating stroke and soon passed away. One moment he’s the rock of the family the next he’s a shell of himself then gone. At 16 I didn’t know how to process the immense pain and confusion and hurt. The only escape was alcohol and I began a 7-year struggle.”
After a series of accidents and terrible mishaps, Greg realized that at 23 he needed to do something and he needed to do it fast. The something was to quit drinking and as he tells it later in the story⏤this would become his biggest accomplishment in life.
Greg Nance transformed his life in remarkable style! He has jogged 49 countries and run some of the toughest footraces on the planet. Highlights include running the UK coast-to-coast, 124 miles thru the Malaysian highlands, and 100 miles across the Philippine jungle. In 2015 he was profiled in Adventure World Magazine for finishing the 250KM Gobi March with a sprained knee nonetheless. But his all-time favorite was running 155 miles with Dad thru Chile’s Atacama Desert, the world’s driest, and crossing the finish line together! Truly Amazing, but it doesn’t end there…
Greg has just become part of a special elite club if you will⏤think of it in these terms, more people have gone into outer-space than completed this feat:
7 Marathons in 7 Days on 7 Continents. Beginning with 26.2 miles in Antarctica, he then ran back-to-back marathons in Cape Town, Perth, Dubai, Madrid, Santiago, and Miami!
The story continues on the Brink of Greatness Podcast…

The Next Leap Forward

Considering Greg’s success with running and marathons⏤he still places quitting drinking as the top accomplishment in his life⏤that is a clear affirmation of not only the dangers of drinking, but what that meant to his life. This should be a wake-call for all of us.

The road to recovery is seldom straight: Relapse, or recurrence of substance use, is common—but definitely not the end of the road. For those who achieve remission of the disorder for five years, scientists report, the likelihood of relapse is no greater than that among the general population, reports Psychology Today. There are plenty of myths and misconceptions about addiction, but in reality, the processes that give rise to addictive behavior resist a simplistic explanation. There is not just one cause: Although genetic or other biological factors contribute to a person’s vulnerability to the condition, many social, psychological, and environmental factors have a powerful influence on substance use.

Electric Vehicles Will Never Dominate the Streets of America

EVs are hugely expensive, have limited range, don’t work well in either hot or cold weather, and burn furiously when the battery ignites.

No Official Wants to Take Responsibility for Lockdowns

No Official Wants to Take Responsibility for Lockdowns

The man who considers himself the embodiment of science has made it clear that he’s not about to accept any responsibility for the carnage that he and other health officials unleashed in their Covid response. Fauci’s Nuremberg moment may yet be approaching but in the meantime, Joakim Book asks, is anyone going to accept responsibility for this?

Question Your Doctor Today, Plus Clay Clark Talks End Times

Those who know the truth but are either being bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into spreading lies must be made to feel the pain for aiding the false narrative. As our readers and listeners are very well aware, the vaccines are neither safe nor effective. Why are they being pushed by trusted doctors onto children and others who take greater risks by getting jabbed than by avoiding them?

The Trojan Horse of Tyranny

The Trojan Horse of Tyranny

Now, almost two years after the start of the COVID scaredemic, more and more evidence of the lies, exaggerations, and manipulations are exposed, what are the American people going to do? Will we sit back and watch while tyrants ignore the Constitution and chip away at our rights faster and faster, or will we stand our ground and regain the liberty that is our birthright as Americans?

Blowing Up The Filibuster

Blowing Up The Filibuster

They are pushing for election reform under the guise of making elections fair. In actuality, a fair election is the last thing on their agenda. They want to move the elections from state control and make them federal. They want to allow non-citizens the right to vote, increase the number of days to vote, allow for mail-in ballots. In short, they are looking at a power grab…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #13

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #13

Is the new Paxlovoid pill just a “reworked” ivermectin? What do you think of the data? Love the show. My question is, is it safe to take the provolone iodine with hypothyroid? There is a history of heart disease in my husband’s family so the thought of my boys getting any vac scares me, especially since I have 3 teenage sons. Will there be a ‘safe’ alternative? Will Novovax or Covax be safer?

The Federal Government v. The American People

The Federal Government v. The American People

From all sides generally ignoring the Constitution to the hyperbolic lies used to justify the mandates, this case shows the rot and corruption at the heart of our government. The question we should be asking is, can freedom and liberty in America survive when those in our government are so corrupted?
