PEER PRESSURE AMONG OUR YOUTH......Today, children can kiss their youth goodbye. Starting as young as 12 years old, tweens, the term coined for kids in between child and teen, begin to face the cruel world of reality: drugs, sex, alcohol and violence. We, as teens and preteens ourselves want to discuss with the world exactly what's really going on within the teen circle. Sometimes adults really think they have the answers but what they don't realize is what went on during their teen days is not what's going in in today's teen days. EVERYONE feel free to join us in this very important conversation.

Conversations with blogger Blu Jewel on her life this far. Rescheduled from 4/1/103 @ 6:30 pm.
Blu Jewel is a 47 year old multi-talented and multi-faceted mother and Configuration Management Analyst, who uses words to express; release; inspire; encourage and to learn.
I’m pretty easy going; what you see is what you get, and I don’t have time for pretense or bullsh*t; it’s too damn taxing and depletes the authenticity of being myself. I’ve wasted too much time living an unauthentic life, almost three decades of which I self-injured. I’m currently about 10 years in recovery from Self-Injury.Aside from writing, I love to travel, cook, and spend time with family and friends. I’d rather be active than idle and tend to make the most out of whatever life throws at me. I live to love and love to live; there’s not much more reward for being alive than that.
Drug and alcohol misuse is often a sign of depression, a silent cry for help for those who may be overwhelmed by emotional distress. Unfortunately, seeking counseling still carries a social stigma in some cultures and too many people have neglected to address emotional problems in a healthy manner, instead turning to the temporary quick fix of drugs or alcohol. Then, when a person uses poor judgement while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they are viewed by society as a criminal. Kate Mahoney, Executive Director of PEER Service, is a licenced Cllinical Social Worker with 30 years experience in the prevention and treatment of substance use disorders. She discusses the need for families to take the stigma out of substance abuse and allow loved ones to seek and receive the help they need for emotional distress. She urges society to decriminalize drug and alcohol addiction. When teens act out with excessive drinking or drug use, they are crying out for help but are often met with punishment rather than assistance. Kate, who has done extensive work with youth parents and schools, has been awarded by the Illinois Acoholism and Drug Dependence Association for her presentations on cutting edge clinical issues at national conferences in Atlanta, Philiadelphia, St. Louis, and New Orleans. She discusses signs of emotional distress and ways to help those who need help to seek it out without fear of ridicule or rejection.
