    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.

    WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A DRUG and ALCOHOL "ADDICT"?

    in Self Help

    SHOW TOPIC: What is the definition of a Drug and Alcohol Addict? We discuss how the definition and or the interpretation thereof impacts whether or not a person seeks treatment, or is advised to seek treatment by family and friends. We will also discuss the treatment community dogma of "Once an Addict, Always an Addict". Is this true? Is there a time when this is no longer applicable?

    5. True or false: Nicotine is NOT an addictive substance. False


    6. How can alcohol abuse affect memory loss and dementia? Alcohol abuse can lead to or increase both.


    EXAMPLES OF DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. How do drugs give people pleasure? Drugs are rewarding because they directly or indirectly stimulate the brain’s natural reward system and cause dopamine to be released. Dr. Steven Hyman: “Drugs are much more reliable and potent than normal stimuli. Instead of running that marathon, or for a scientist, working for months and writing a good paper and getting it accepted—a lot of work for a little dopamine in the brain—people who use drugs find that they can literally short-circuit all of these natural processes.”


    2. Why do some people fall quickly into addiction, while others can experi- ment and then walk away? Dr. Hyman: “You know, it’s hardly heroic that we use alcohol well. And there’s no special act of will. And this gets back to the issue of vulnerability. That is, people who will take drugs enough to potentially get addicted seem to seek them out and enjoy them. They seem to have fewer warning signs.” Dr. Alan Leshner: “It’s not true that you take a drug and you become addicted for the rest of your life. Some people do. Most people don’t. However, most people (who routinely use) ultimately will become addicted to an addicting substance.

    The Ferguson Verdict: Justice Served Or Business As Usual In Amerikkka?

    in News

    Michael Brown is dead and nothing will bring him back.


    Amerikkkan History is filled with countless murders of us as though we are animals and nothing has changed in the present day!


    Instance after instance has our Black men young and old gunned down senselessly while we are asked in the aftermath by the so called authorities to "Show Tolerance, Mutual Respect & Restraint", but if these attributes were executed by those who are deemed to be law enforcement then we wouldn't find ourselves in these situations where justice never seems to be served and the pain and frustrations grow in our hearts.


    The question that we all must ask ourselves is what must we do to prevent this from happening again.


    What can we do to alter the overall system that doesn't seem to work in our best interests at all.


    What is it that we must do personally to counter a system that seems to be bloodthirsty for Black blood by any means necessary.


    It's obvious that race is a major factor in this stolen country and the sickness of racism in those who oppress the darker people of the world appears to be getting worse while we must deal with their dysfunctional satanic thinking in the worst possible way.


    This discussion will be uncensored and uncut and I welcome ALL to call in to express their opinions no matter what side of the fence you find yourself standing.


    This is a live show so do not hesitate to call in!

    Justice is a dish best served cold...Check please!!!

    in Politics Conservative

    I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving despite a few folks wanting to act a Shrek and Donkey about the Ferguson grand jury results.  Here in Atlanta, you had people blocking traffic on the expressway because they were mad with the results.  They let people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson get them in an emotional orgy without presenting the facts of what science and consistent testimonies have proven.  There have been witnesses who have been granted immunity because they lied to the grand jury, witnesses who made statements just to be seen/heard, and those who were not even witnesses but gave testimony that they saw what happened.  What was the end result??? As usual, they let the race pimps come in and get them mad enough to tear up their own communities and putting their own residents out of work.  We will also look at the President's approach of getting his immigration policies through own his own.  It looks like he wants to discuss our immigration policies with the president of Mexico instead of listening to what the people who elected him are saying.  Burmuda and Great Britain are getting tough on immigration so why can't we

    GOVERNMENT KILLED KENNEDY CAUSE HE SERVED THE GREYS (GOD)

    in Religion

     And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe--the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.
