I have returned home to Toronto after spending much of the last eighteen months in hospitals. I am hoping that my health has improved to the point where I can start producing original content again. Thank you to all who are watching for your support over the course of this trying time. I hope that you all are coping with the COVID crisis successfully.

Welcome back. Welcome here. We wish you the best among us. Thank you for all you do and have done.

  • Jordan, I have had experience with marijuana and alcohol, 3 big psychosis episodes, depression since childhood and a bunch of psychiatrists. I have used "medicine" only in acute stages of psychosis. I've been successfully recovering for the past 2.5 years with only psychotherapy. As a chemist, I knew it's impossible to make a "medicine" that will correct the supposed chemical "imbalance" in the precise region of the brain. Firstly, nobody was able to prove to me that I had such an imbalance and secondly, nobody could explain me how that is better than my "self medication" with marijuana. All the answers were either childish: "you don't know what you're talking about", or trying to explain me how the benefits will outweigh the potential consequences if I don't take them. This second excuse was precisely my own excuse for abusing marijuana. I have noticed extreme cognitive dissonance in points of views of those psychiatrists, because of the way that they reacted to my simple arguments that I used to justify weed (they were the same as their arguments to justify "medication"). They were taught incorrectly, and have been prescribing this medicine for years and it is normal for them to feel attacked once they realize that they may have ruined the lives of many patients. I did not fight with them, I had nothing against them and I still don't have anything against them. I've met many "scientists" who are not, and many "doctors" who are not. The main problem is terminology. In my country medicine (drugs) translates to lijek (cure). If something is a cure, that means that it needs to cure a disease. Definition of a cure would be something that you take for a limited period of time in order to permanently eradicate the problem. This is not the official classification of medicine in my country, but the word allows me to make my own distinction. Antibiotic IS a cure. You use it for a week and after that the disease is gone. Therefore I consider antibiotics to be a medicine. Statins, or any other chronic disease treatment are NOT medicine. They can't cure a disease, they can only control some of its effects. Those are, in my opinion, food supplements. Very very risky food supplements with many negative side effects. Also, their effectiveness is only measured with respect to what they're supposed to prevent. Nobody measures long term health effects of those drugs outside the specific thing they're aimed at. They just need to pass as non toxic, which is a very undefined term and you will often see claims like: this is non toxic unless your kidneys are damaged... etc. This is just a trick. Of course it's non toxic if your kidneys are fine, but once it ruins your kidneys, it becomes toxic. Once it destroys your hormones, everything becomes toxic to you. People on such medicine shrink their food range every year because they can eat less and less variety of things due to damaged organs and hormones. This principle applies to psychiatric medicine more than any other. The same way that chemicals in your brain can change the way you think, forcing yourself to change the way you think will change those chemicals in the brain. It's a feedback loop, and unless you are completely out of control (psychotic) you CAN force yourself to think differently and slowly change your brain chemistry. My psychologist is now taking notes from me to help her other patients and she has never seen anyone recover this way and this fast. I would like to help more people, but I'm not qualified in that field and I would like to share my experience with people who actually understand the field and are willing to fix their patients without just prescribing drugs. The reason why you became popular is because you preached common sense (this is not to discredit you, you did a very important job). Fixing circadian rythim, cleaning up your place and making yourself useful is a MUST. It's the baseline and this helps 90% of people without serious psychiatric illness. However, you were somewhat misguided regarding medicine, and I've actually seen you contradict yourself. It's an honest mistake, it also happened to me and it is really difficult to avoid. I hope you will start doing things differently, and I can guarantee you that it will be a difficult and painful experience and you will NOT feel happy for a long time. Probably a year or two. And that's ok.

Commence the flogging. But any rational people here will have to know that statement rings true.

  • For anyone trying to quit benzos, I took 1-3 Xanax bars a day for 5 + years. Never cold turkey. Switch to klonopin and cut down as slow as possible once a month. The longer half life will help avoid the detox. Once going from .25mg to nothing take valerian root and melatonin at night to help anxiety and sleep. These are the most dangerous drugs around and can kill you or cause seizures going cold turkey! I'm praying for you jordan petersen. I'm praying for your family! You are a hero!

  • It's ridiculous we keep pumping ourselves with hardcore drugs when less aggressive medicines exist. I wish people started with the less extremes and understood the cost of the drug shortcut they are taking. I bet he could have taken something like l-theanine and worked to become accustomed to his demanding environments. Unfortunately, I think people abuse our awful healthcare standards more to validate an inner self-destructive drive. That may be the case here, people say it's ironic, i'd argue it's expected. People become experts through experience, it's only logical Jordan experiences the struggles he preaches solutions to and it's not only for others but himself as well. I'm sure someone will view this as some sort of unnecessary criticism, well it is to those who wish it to be ya know lol. I actually respect this guy. He stood up for what he truly believed to be right and worth sharing. I agree with many of his opinions and also disagree strongly with others. All in all, his general notion to the fact that depression more simply comes from not doing what you know you should be doing, that's the lesson I would suggest for him to revisit. It works for me when I find myself going the wrong way. I find that if you stop holding yourself accountable you lose the ability to, when this happens you'll need the criticism from people who really know you, not just someone self help lecture. That's an issue I find with many of his over the top supporters too overcome by aspiration to critically self-evaluate where they are now; never truly making advances towards who they want to be because they have an inaccurate assessment of who they currently are. The greeks got this stuff right way back when we were far more natural. Diotima's ladder, plato's allegory, politics, they provide the same arguments he usually advocates. Idk why it's so fascinating to so many people now, but I'm glad it is as they are key arguments that set the rules for society. I hope he recovers well and continues those lectures that get people thinking.

  • The recent discovery of your videos has been helpful in my sorting through 49 years of belief systems both indoctrinated in youth and self sought in adulthood that have not been of much service to my life. Hardship transforms us when we dont have ready made answers to apply or we decide not to partake in cliche offerings from detached but well meaning friends. As Mr Peterson gains more insite after having the strength for through reflection, I am hoping he produces more videos on these insights. I see a humbleness in his gratitude for his life and from this I believe so much wisdom will be shared, I hope will be shared. I'm thankful he choose to keep looking for answers to the chemical physical addiction his body and mind underwent. I'm thankful he choose to live. I'm thankful he is going to continue to share his insights and I'm grateful to him for expending the energy it took for him to create this video.

I am currently undergoing a tremendous challenge of being separated by my family due to covid travel restrictions and having experienced a near-death experience with my puppy over a month ago in a near-fatal accident and despite that have found the friends and strangers that came forward into my life to support and be there for me.. WOw just wow, there are people Jordan as you speak about that operate in high competence with great kindness and generosity of time and spirit for those of us suffering. I have been hugely inspired by your youtube channel through this tough time of not being able to walk and waiting for my hip to heal.. I am one that dances, plays drums, runs, walks at tremendous speed, a highly active being.. to be put to a standstill.. it is deeply humbling especially dealing with the pain. I am sending you thanks and kia kaha - strength (maori) on your way to recovery!

Jordan, you will be in the thoughts and prayers of so many of us who delight in your perspectives and narratives; I am so happy and excited to be able to hear new content from you! It is beyond refreshing to see someone of such incredible intellectual capacity acknowledge and worship God and give Him the glory instead of wallowing in their own. We Christians hear constantly from the self-appointed "intellectual" camp how weak minded we are to recognize God as our creator, so counting you among God's followers blows them right out of the water! Praying for continued health and well-being for you as you continue to recover; may God richly bless your journey and use it to further your message AND His :)

  • Welcome to the world of addiction. Family and friends are crucial, although they can be perceived as not particularly as such at the time. Taking them for granted and being too close we tend to dismiss them. Addiction is an animal of its own, and In my opinion should be realized as such. Problem is, our addictive mentality is so cunning it makes us feel as if all wrongs done are 100% our fault. I disagree as many do, this is a battle for sure, and should be fought with the realization that our thoughts are very much influenced by this demon and it’s chemicals. Remember our person is not completely at fault here. Depression or feeling of dread occurs when you first open your eyes, and an almost tangible essence of helplessness, depression and hopelessness appear daily. It took me a while to change this, and I can now clearly see how my loved ones actually carried me, loved me, and provided that “just enough” support to prevent me from going over the edge. I am not educated academically in particular, but my experiences have taught me more than any school. You are amazing, we love you Jordan, so much, and wish you the best, and are here for you when you need us, just ask. Remember it’s not you that is the negative aspect in your life,’s addiction and it’s tools. Cheers. Tyler PEI Canada.
