"What is an addiction after all? Does it necessarily have to be alcohol, drugs or gambling? I think that living a pointless and wasteful life is probably the worst type of addiction often a lot more difficult to quit than any chemicals or artificial…"

"Isa is 'just a straight line'.  Okay. But none of the other ones are. And Isa has particular dimensions and is vertical. While contemplating the runes in terms of what other runes comprise them may be useful to a degree, I think it…"

"Interestingly enough, Hagalaz and Isa are very typical 'self-destruction' runes, Hagalaz being the crisis/catastrophe from past action and Isa being stagnation/stasis and blockage. Less severe is Jera, who demands hard work, patience and…"

"I would argue that Uruz would be a good rune to use in a case like this because Uruz represents the strength of health, and in a bind rune Uruz could be used as strength of will that leads to breaking addiction. Dagaz is another one mentioned and I…"

"I don't know where the idea comes from that any rune should only be used/contemplated deeply by experienced rune casters. How did those rune casters become experienced? Probably by breaking that very presumed rule and diving in. Nauthiz can be…"

"By the way, I would propose that one should keep away from Hagalaz, when in addiction. When one is stable, Hagalaz fall (or any similar event) will make him/her little harm. When one's balance is distorted, Hagalaz fall could cripple…"
