I successfully joined a discourse community of a music class to learn the skills of playing an electronic keyboard in my sophomore year of high school. I attended a seminar in our school conducted by a renowned institution known as The Trinity College of London. The Trinity College of London offers graded musical qualifications in performing arts, musical theory and for performance in electronic keyboards, piano, violin, and many other musical instruments. Having a soft corner for music since childhood, I decided to opt for their class as I thought this to be the perfect platform to enhance my skills in an art form that I was passionate about. Moreover, the class took place in one famous music college that was just a few blocks away from my school.

Both MacFarland and Bimbi inspired the two author’s to actually want to read, to learn. In Rose’s experience, he writes, “…McFarland had hooked me. He tapped my old interest in reading…I suppose I had been mediocre for too long” . For Malcolm X, the motivation came from “…Bimbi, who" first made me feel envy of his stock of knowledge”.

The independent group design could have meant, by chance, the group who were told to expect no negative withdraws, were naturally more determined people, thus increasing their chance of giving up anyway. Without a control group we cannot see how many people would have relapsed with no expectations being induced. Furthermore, self report methods were used when reporting withdrawal symptoms, which are subjective and could be influenced by demand characteristics, with people guessing the aim of the study and trying to give answers to help the experimenter. Another cognitive explanation is the self medicated model, which descried relapse as a result of the individual believing without their addiction they cannot cope, focus on a task or feel bored without their addiction to occupy them.

For instance, a celebrity like Michael J. Fox would help his organization to attract more publicity, thus making any money that was used before for public awareness accessible for research and any other resources.
