    When Alcohol Becomes a Hiding Place

    in Motivation

    The last season the show aired, I spoke on how sex can become a hiding place for many people. In this show I want to touch on how alcohol can also be used as a coping mechanism to deal with major pain, disappointment, shame, etc. So many people drink alcohol and do not realize that they are drinking it for far deeper reasons than to just "get tipsy" or because the taste is enjoyed.


    I just want to point out that a person does not necessarily have to classified as an alchoholic to have an alchohol problem. So many people are able to function pretty well with alchohol and other drugs. They are able to hide it well and carry on with their external lives as if nothing is wrong. Sometimes others, especially close loved ones, are able to tell that something is wrong, but are not always able to pinpoint the causes and the true depth of the issue.


    I wanted to speak on this because I have experienced this very destructive secret life. This may help someone who is currently struggling or someone who might think they know someone who is. 


    According to the National Institute on Alchohol Abuse and Alcoholism, in the United States nearly 88,000 people die annually (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women). Alcohol is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. Therefore, this is a serious thing and it needs to be addressed. God does not intend for us to suffer in this way.

    Alcohol, Drugs and the Brain

    in Family

    Background: Substances of abuse are a cultural phenomenon as ancient as civilization itself. Only recently, however, have scientists begun to study their effects on us, and more specifically, their effects on our brains. Why do people get addicted to drugs, tobacco, and alcohol?  Why is it so hard to kick a habit? It stands to reason that since drug use is self-destructive, people would naturally avoid it. This obviously is not the case. What is not so obvious, however, is why people turn to addictive drugs.  People use drugs, tobacco, and alcohol to feel good, without regard to the fact that long-term effects are very bad. Research is only now showing us how genetic and environmental factors all play a part in our susceptibility to substance addiction. 
    KEY WORDS: Alcoholism, dopamine, emotional memory, neurotransmitter, physical dependence, addiction

    Why is food so important to recovery? ( Also does the alcohol really cook out?)

    in Self Help

    This is one of the most controversial issues in recovery, what to eat.  I cannot tell you how many people will argue one way or another about whether alcohol cooks out of the food or not.  Another point of controversy is do certain foods cause triggers? ( like avocados and raisins).  We will be talking about foods and how we can use foods to strengthen both our recovery and our health.


    Join me at 3:30 PM PST on blogtalkradio.com.  I am excited to talk about this and any other recovery question you may have.  You can email your questions at buildingblocksofrecovery@gmail.com and I will answer them on the show.


    Until next week, Namaste.
