The risk of diazepam addiction is hardly recognizable. I know what I’m talking about. I went through 7 detoxifications and 4 long-term weaning treatments. It’s terrible. These tablets brought me from the top manager to the social side. It is tragic and bitter. All of these benzos should be banned by law.

Basic Training, often called boot camp, prepares recruits for all elements of service: physical, mental and emotional. It gives service members the basic tools necessary to perform the roles that will be assigned to them for the duration of their tour. Boot Camp for Christians is all about knowing the basics of God’s Word given in the Ten Commandments, God’s basic tools necessary to perform the roles of being God’s people assigned to them for the duration of their tour (on earth). It guides us in ways that we learn the blessings of God so we can be a blessing to others.
