DISEASE : An abnormality with precise etiology. Cancer cells and virus strains are examples of an etiology needed as scientific proof for the proper diagnosis of a specific disease and source of symptoms.  This definition is not without exception or controversy.  In 1956, after the discovery of the double helix, the American Medical Association classified alcoholism as a disease based on the assumption science was going to have its etiology through a gene source.  To be safe, the AMA did classify alcoholism as a disease under the guise of the Psychiatric Association because of their nomenclature nature. Seven decades later, perhaps the most sought-after gene in history, is still undiscovered.
In 2013, The American Medical Association classified obesity as a disease. This was opposed by their own Council on Science and Public Health (CSPH), who did the overruled, determinate research, and concluded obesity was a lifestyle choice.  (American Medical Association (AMA) 2013 Annual Meeting.)

Redefining words as addiction, impulsive with the definitions and disorders being exacting as Medical Science is. A Diesease needs an etiology. Lifestyle choices are not diseases.

ACQUIRED LIVING POTENTIAL (ALP ): Are the major categories of living and discloses certain truths about a person's actual living condition and performance. With the honest and diligent work of answering a few questions that take only a couple of minutes, ALP gives a person the ability to see on paper where they are, where they want to be, and how to get there.
Combined with our trigger worksheet, a person can also have the ability to identify the internal and external contributory factors and obstacles that impede reaching their goal ambitions.


https://www.steveizenstark.com/Redefining, Clear and exacting definitions are necessary in any Sciences and the subjectivity and actual changes of terms and disorders as Impulsive, Addictive,

CO-DEPENDENCY-ENABLING : These important terms are very common in usage, absolute similarities in explanations and descriptions, and no agreeable definitive definitions.  We believe both these identifiable traits are of severe concern for all persons involved.  Simply, Co-dependency is a person who contributes to the destructive behaviors of another, whether at times knowingly or unknowingly for the primary purpose to fulfill the needs of themselves. Not for the control, harm, needs or any other intent directed to, or regarding the other person.  Enabling, depending on how ingrained the behavior has become, is an act to consciously manipulate for the responsive and dependent control of another person.

CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY, SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER :                                              The American Psychiatric Association has altered these definitions 6 times.     ( They actually wrote a revision.) The problem is these terms do not fit the definition of a medical disease which requires an etiology or identifiable sources such as a virus or cancer cell.  Quite simply, a person who is chemically dependent first builds a tolerance due to amounts and length of usage.  It takes more of the chemical to achieve the same effect.  The second criteria are withdrawals.  Withdrawal is the body craving and physiologically needing the chemical because it is lacking the chemical.  This physiological necessity of the substance does not happen with every drug.  Mental dependency is called latent addiction. (See Above.)  Substance use disorder is a very subjective measure of determining the effect substances have regarding a person's performance in life.  Examples of spending all one's money, losing a job, not coming home when said, etc., due to drug use. Depending on the number of issues a person answers as substance use related, a disorder is diagnosed. Though we here do not consider either as a disease per lack of etiology, we absolutely concur with the physiological evidence of tolerance and withdrawal of chemical dependency.   Substance use disorder has vastly different implications than chemical dependency, mainly the substance is a symptom.  Unlike chemical dependency where take the substance away, the physiological dependency goes away, with substance abuse or disorder the substance masks the underlying disorders.   All chemically dependent are substance use disordered.  Not all substance use disordered are chemically dependent.  By our terms, there is no disease called alcoholism or drug addict or obesity. A bottle, a pill, or a calorie are not the sources of disease.  They are problematic lifestyle choices and problems are acquired solely by the choice.  Otherwise, any behavior can be a disease.  There can be secondary diseases created like cancer or liver disease, or heart disease.  Behaviors are symptomatic.  For more information, please read 'Consciously Pause', Latent Impulsive Thinking, and 'CHANGES' on this site.  Just hit the button.    

SOBER :  The root is from the Latin; sobrius, meaning sensible, or not drunk.  Societal jargon does tend to define sober or sobriety as total abstinence of all mind-altering substances.  A sober thinker is generally an all-around sensible person regarding all aspects of their lives and may drink alcohol appropriately, etc.  Overall, their actions stay within range of the term sensible.  With substance dependency or abuse, we tend to consider sober only in terms of abstinence, without categorical considerations of thought, speech, or other behaviors.  This does create problems.  The final definition of this page, Ownership, Retribution, Restitution, and Proper Sense briefly addresses this issue.  The Latent Impulsive Thinking, 'Consciously Pause', and 'Changes' pages of this site contains more particular details.
SYMPTOM :  Singular evidence of a non-normal trait.  A runny nose is a symptom.  This fact alone will not be enough information to establish scientific truth. 
SYNDROME :  A group of symptoms that possibly characterize the traits of a conclusion.  A runny nose can be any number of things.  A runny nose, with a cough, body aches and a fever, in addition to a reported outbreak of the flu, narrows the field of educated guesses. Though a syndrome does not necessarily equate to scientific truth. The etiology determines that standard.
Disease (review): Must have an etiology (source).  The syndrome above sounds like the flu.  It isn't until the verification of a flu strain virus in a person's system.  A lump is not cancer without the etiology of cancerous cells.  This is known as scientific truth.  The government financed the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), has reported that 50% of pediatric prescribed antibiotics are prescribed incorrectly because syndromes or symptoms are guessed wrong.  This is cause for concern due to the immunities of medications being built up by these children.  (Amongst other issues of concern.)
EVIDENCE-BASED MODEL:  Combining several specialists from several different fields for their individual expertise.  
INDIVIDUAL CRITERIA NECESSITY, IDENTIFIABLE CHOICE OF ACTIONS :  These two terms are part of 'Consciously Pause'. First, as already discussed, this is part of changing the semantics.  Second, they are used as new triggers to create alternative neural pathways in the CNS. When external and internal triggers ( Individual Criteria Necessity), are exposed repeatedly at different locations, events, and times, the consistent practice to 'Consciously Pause'  begins to ingrain and replace the old electrochemical pathway to addictive thinking. This creates multiple new thoughts and the ability if the consistent practice to 'Consciously Pause' continues, to attach those new thoughts to one of several newly acquired Identifiable Choice of Actions.  This is literally practicing a lifetime of being conscious and following through with an appropriate choice of newly available behaviors as opposed to the triggered addictive thought and impulsive auto-singular responsive action. 
OWNERSHIP OF RESPONSIBILITY
ACCEPTANCE OF RETRIBUTION
EFFORTS OF RESTITUTION                                                                                                                                        PROPER SENSE OF 
REMORSE : These statements are fairly self-explanatory and are provided in more detail on the 'Changes' page of this site.  They are mandatory to achieve the absolute sincere change within a person's intent and manifests in all their thought, speech, and behavior.  It is with absolved willingness and earnest efforts that will exhibit a consistent, credible, and committed practices standard.  The results are seen and felt by others as obvious, genuine, and REHABILITATED.

EXTERNAL PRIMARY ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES,

INTERNAL TRIGGER STIMULI :

Internal triggers are emotions and state of being that is also called pushing someone's button's that cause an auto- impulsive redundant response.  External are getting cut-off, an advertisement, the weather, etc.  Anything that triggers exactly like an internal trigger.  A trigger hits our Central Nervous System (Our Buttons), which sends a message to the brain via neural pathways.  Over time with repetition, the CNS will have burnt a direct electrochemical or neural pathway from the trigger point to the same location in the brain like continually walking a path in the woods. First, the trigger, then the same path to the brain, the brain's same command, and the same response. Latent addictive thought, auto-impulsive action. 

ADDICT, ADDICTION;  From Latin, ADDICTUS: Meaning To devote.  Society tends to primarily identify the words addict and addiction when attached to drug usage.  Drug use, though a possible issue upon itself (see Chemical Dependency, Substance Use Disorder), is a symptom.  Addiction is a latent, process of thinking, starting with any belief system.  Latent addictive thinking is when the mind becomes devoted by a hidden or unconscious necessity to preserving the above-mentioned belief system by justification which sets forth an auto- impulsive, repetitious cycle of certain behaviors to validate and survive the belief system. This can cause certain questionable behaviors to become more destructive and dangerous, and thinking to become deeper into distortion and in denial of truth.  We call this distortion of thinking with a destructive auto- responsive behavior, Latent Impulsive Thinking  (Syndrome).
