People often complain to me about "nothing happening spiritually in them," and I
make it clear that if they practice celibacy, their sublimated sexual energy will
transmute into spiritual force. - L. Ron Gardner

LGBTQ Community Effected by Addiction
Members of the LGBTQ community are more at risk to have substance abuse issues. Many of the emotional issues and mental health disorders that lead people to activating a drug and/or alcohol addiction are prevalent in the LGBTQ community. Here are some additional shocking statistics:
Among transgender people, 20 to 30% are abuse substances. This is compared to just 9% of the general population.
Gay and bisexual men are 12.2 times more likely to use amphetamines than straight men.
Nearly 40% of people who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual have used illicit drugs within the past year. This is compared to 17% of those who identify as heterosexual.
Among LGBTQ individuals seeking treatment for substance abuse, transgender men and women are more than twice as likely to have a co-occurring mental health disorder than cisgender men and women.
These statistics show that for LGBTQ individuals, substance use disorder is more likely than for heterosexual and cisgender men and women.
[Note: unfortunately the authors of the above publication give no account of the harmful effects of homosexual acts on the human mind, body and emotions, and seem to have no interest in advocating the practice of celibacy for the benefit of their their constituincies and paying clients. They prefer to focus on the problem of addiction while ignoring or even supporting the underlying sexual disorders beneath said addictions. They do not seem to recognize that the practicy of celibacy could provide a regerenation of psysical and mental energies, the prior destruction of which are made evident by the recitation of these statistics. How could people who desire a higher life engage themself in these degrading actions? They appearently desire that spiritual practices suplement and support the gay lifestyle, rather than studying and acknowledging the harmful effects of these acts, then renouncing them in an attempt to regain their wholeness, mental, emotional and moral clairity, and genuine self-acceptance. However the raw statistics that they provide give a shockingly clear view of the results of these lifestyles choices the leaders of this organization wish to accomodate.
