Bach Flower Remedies: Agrimony And Addiction

Updated on December 22, 2013

You can’t even called these people ‘poker-faced’ because they always have a smile plastered on their faces and never let the world see what’s going on inside – even though they might be crying. These are the world’s phenomenal pretenders and you’ll find then cracking a joke or laughing at someone else’s when their heart could be breaking inside. Why do they do this? They hate the world to be privy to the bad times that they could be going through. However, this takes its toll and they suffer in silence or drown their sorrows in drink when they are alone. So many addicts are actually drinking to keep up a pretence.


They’re the world’s happy and smiling people – or so they like to make everyone think. Think Bozo – enlivening lives with laughs and you’ll get what we mean. That is why they have an affinity for alcohol and drugs because it keeps them – or so they like to believe – in a perpetual high state of happiness. However, this repression of feeling can result, in extreme cases, in heart attacks or strokes or in a break down. And then they could just crack a few jokes about it – even if they are in very bad health. Agrimony makes them face up to things as they are and also makes them feel that it is not necessary to be happy all the time – it’s all right to be out of sorts too.


They lock up their troubles but the inner turbulence is not so easy to get rid of. They don’t want the world to know what they are really thinking so when they go out, they feel it’s time to paint on a smile and step out with a swagger. Agrimony gives them peace of mind besides just making them stop pretending. They learn to face up to the way they feel and not run away from what goes on in their minds by always being on the move. Alcohol and drugs stop being the crutch to get them out of feeling low and they learn to give them up.



Their heart could be breaking but they hide it – and hide it well, usually with a smile or a joke. With Agrimony, they learn to be in touch with and accept what they really feel without putting a moral spin of what they should feel and what they shouldn’t on it. They learn to see that problems, hurt, sadness and feeling under the weather are all acceptable and a part of life and they need to accept them, not refuse to acknowledge them and hide them away, hoping they will disappear.


They become more realistic and stop seeing everything religious and spiritual as only good and happy. They become more discerning, learning to accept what is good and discard what is bad simply because they are more in tune with themselves inside. Agrimony makes them whole and a lot more human as they see that no one is perfect and that frailties are acceptable.

      Money does a lot of things but it does not prevent you from being human and suffering from the human condition.

      Shalini, you might be interested in this, I used some of their Bach remedies before was very useful for me.

      Regarding actors, I agree it is mind boggling why they can't be happy. I think one of the problems is they don't share it with others and think Money solves everything. There was a quote in the movie "Into the Wild" the hero says "Happiness only real when shared".

      I have my lows sometimes,but I just deal with it.I wonder why some of these actors get on alcohol,or drugs.I feel they should be content with what they have.

      The way I see it, Alcohol consumption is what brings sorrow. Then the sorrow brought upon, needs to be constantly doused with the very same instrument that generated it, the mighty liquid - Alcohol.
