An unusually high rate of complications and even spiritual deaths associated with general anesthesia have been reported in people using specific anesthetics common in contemporary life, including: Facebook, Video Games, iPhones, Alcohol, Recreational Drugs, Vacation, Serf Labor, and Dogmatic Religion. These anesthetics may prove highly addictive, sought out to ward off the pain of existence and preventing one from confronting the meaninglessness of his or her life.

It is reported that most people use one or more of these anesthetics for hours each day, distracting themselves from their suffering, loneliness, disappointment, and failure. Most users will not even recognize the root causes of their habitual abuse of these anesthetics due to the widespread social acceptance of their use.

Symptoms indicating over-reliance and abuse of anesthetics may include: use of fatalistic language to describe one’s circumstances, frequent reference to the necessity of one’s actions and the disclaiming of one’s freedom of choice in most or all matters, the denial of viable alternatives, and ascribing outcomes to something other than the natural consequences of one’s own actions.

Sustained excessive usage of anesthetics may cause permanent damage to one’s ability to feel emotion, relate to other people, achieve one’s own goals and aspirations in life, and will in almost all cases severely stunt spiritual and emotional growth. Substituting these anesthetics for legitimate experience with the outside world is not only harmful to the health of the user, but to everybody around them.

Recommended treatment for anesthetic abuse is the immediate cessation of use for a period of time for detoxification. After sustained detoxification has been achieved, it is recommended that appropriate use of any common anesthetic be limited only to narrow and specific, non-anesthetic use. Relapse is all but guaranteed in most patients, and therefore must be guarded against with great care.

To assist with detoxification, it is recommended that the user undergo self-therapy through reading, journaling, and productive, life-affirming work that is consistent with the user’s legitimate internal wants and desires for his or her life. Philosophy, psychology, prayer/meditation, and authentic conversation with others is highly recommended to insure against relapse and to improve the overall health of the patient during recovery.
