Disgraceful drug addiction is ruining our lives miserably

Disgraceful drug addiction: The root cause

We all concede that the disgraceful drug addiction impacts negatively on our health globally. The resources directed towards resolving this menace is weighing most economies down. Because of our consensus on this topic, I felt that it will be necessary to share with you some of the genesis of this problem. You will be amazed to know how close the source of the problem is to you. And that is why I want to persuade you to keep me company for a while as we explore this topic. As I had mentioned before, the root cause of drug taking and drug addiction is not distanced away but just a stone through away. If you are wondering about my choice of topic, I will explain. One fact about this topic is that there will be no addiction to any drug without taking or using the drug itself. Many people often argue that “I only took a little and that a little alcohol is good for your health.” Have you heard such statements? I hope we are together now, after all, a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step says doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President, and founder of AWAREmed Health and wellness resource center.

Disgraceful drug addiction: Poor diet

Today drug use and abuse have become a major problem in our societies and drugs such as alcohol, nicotine, heroin, marijuana cocaine and other psychostimulants have various negative effects on human life. But most importantly, the prevention of drug addiction, better rehabilitation and the decrease in the use of drugs will not occur until we focus and concentrate more on the physical or biological side of the use and addiction to drugs and understand the relationship between diet, magnetism and drug use. Many times drug addicts use drugs because of poor nutrition and because of lack of vital energy or magnetism in their bodies. This also applies to those who are using drugs moderately for recreational purposes.

Disgraceful drug addiction: Why magnetic deficiency

The answer to this question will be found in Phyllis explanation of the two poles of magnetism, positive and negative. The human body and all animal bodies are positive in polarity while vegetation’s are negative. The human body will need magnetic balance for good health and to resist the craving for drugs which can only be attained through feeding on plant foods alone i.e., a purely vegetarian diet. While on the other hand electromagnetism is the key to human vitality or energy and many vitamins and minerals are also needed for efficient brain function. This, therefore, means that a diet rich in high animal products and low in vegetable grains, nuts, seeds, and fruits will have the effect of creating a magnetic-electrical and chemical deficiency.

That explains why drug taking and drug addiction will always remain the same and must be eliminated from our body systems. We appreciate that because of the addictiveness of drugs, many may not be willing or rather find it difficult to seek for treatment. Nonetheless, we want to encourage you to look at such difficulties as obstacles along the recovery process. Consulting with experts from AWAREmed health center will certainly give you the much-needed breakthrough and a lasting solution.

Substance abuse obstacles and cancer put together can only add more injury to the already difficult problem

Substance abuse obstacles and cancer: Alcohol use and alcoholism

In my quest to address the problem of substance abuse obstacles, it is becoming a trend that every time this topic of addiction is mention very really will it go without touching on alcohol consumption. Experts across the globe including doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President, and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center agrees that alcohol is the most addictive and abused drug and one that causes most of the health problems we go through today. Having said that I want to put emphasis on this by repeating this point that most people understand that heavy alcohol drinking can cause health problems, however, what many people may not know is that alcohol consumption can raise their cancer risk. Several cancers are as a result of drinking alcohol and this is what is going to form the basis of discussion in this article. If you want to be enlightened about the effects of alcohol and cancer, then keep on the link and read on for much educative and informative experience. And if you’re struggling with alcoholism, grab this opportunity and schedule an appointment with doctor Akoury now for the commencement of your recovery process that will leave you free from all the implications of alcohol abuse.

Substance abuse obstacles and cancer: Types of cancer linked to alcohol use

As discussed alcohol is a known cause of different kinds of cancers. Such cancers include:

  • Mouth
  • Throat (pharynx)
  • Voice box (larynx)
  • Esophagus
  • Liver
  • Colon and rectum
  • Breast

Besides the above alcohol may also increase the risk of cancer of the pancreas and for each of these cancers, the risk increases with the amount of alcohol consumed.

Cancers of the mouth, throat, voice box, and esophagus

Alcohol consumption is no doubt contributes the highest risk of these cancers. Drinking and smoking combine raises the risk of these cancers much more than the effects of either drinking or smoking alone. This might be because alcohol has the ability to act as a solvent, helping harmful chemicals in tobacco to get inside the cells that line the digestive tract. Alcohol may also slow down these cells’ ability to repair damage to their DNA caused by chemicals in tobacco.

Liver cancer

Research has proved that long-term alcohol use has been linked to an increased risk of liver cancer. Regular, heavy alcohol use can damage the liver, leading to inflammation. This, in turn, might raise the risk of liver cancer.

Colon and rectal cancer

Alcohol use has been linked with a higher risk of cancers of the colon and rectum. The evidence for such a link is generally stronger in men than in women, although studies have found the link in both sexes.

Breast cancer

Even a few drinks a week is linked with an increased risk of breast cancer in women. This risk may be especially high in women who do not get enough folate (a B vitamin) in their diet or through supplements. Alcohol can affect estrogen levels in the body, which may explain some of the increased risks. Drinking less alcohol may be an important way for many women to lower their risk of breast cancer.

The simple fact that you’re communicating with them is help already. Nonetheless in your conversation with them always ensure that you are not judgmental in your speech. Communication needs to be immediate because the earlier treatments administered the better. Remember that any delay in addressing the addiction complication the difficult and longer it will take to have the problem effectively addressed.

Taking care of yourself

The consequences of addiction are sometimes very dangerous especially when the victim is saying signs of becoming violent. Remember that you are the sober one and you’re doing all your best to help and not to be hurt in the process. You noticed that when one is under the influence of a substance they do not know what they are doing. That means they can cause you harm like for instance, physical injury, rape, assault, theft and many other illegal acts of violence. Doctor Akoury pieces of advice that you should not subject yourself to any danger instead identify people you can talk to for advice. People you can trust, lean on at times of such difficulties. And always ensure that your safety is safeguarded.

Don’t blame yourself for any failures

In the process of helping out, always appreciate that at times you will succeed and the opposite is also true. When you experience challenges never put the weight of blame on your shoulder. Yours is to offer to support the best way you can by encouraging your loved one to consent to seek for treatment. You can never force them to change neither can you control their decisions. When you have done your best and that best is not leading them to recovery, you can seek help from other relatives but the bottom line is that the victim must accept to take responsibility for their actions.

Taming addiction responsibly

Taming addiction responsibly

Taming addiction responsibly is important if we are to bring up a healthy generation

Taming addiction responsibly: Strong leadership and involvement from the top

When an organization is based on strong leadership where all the top managers are taking responsibility in taming addiction responsibly at their work stations, their subject/juniors will always reciprocate. This can be a very powerful way of keeping addiction to check at workplaces. With such great involvement, the following are possible:

  • Visible, active commitment from the board;
  • Establishing effective ‘downward’ communication systems and management structures;
  • Integration of good health and safety management with business decisions.
  • Engaging the workforce in the promotion and achievement of safe and healthy conditions;
  • Effective ‘upward’ communication;
  • Providing high-quality training.

Taming addiction responsibly: Assessment and review

  • Identifying and managing health and safety risks including the alcohol and drug abuse
  • Accessing (and following) competent advice
  • Monitoring, reporting and reviewing performance.

Addressing health and safety should not be seen as a regulatory burden: it offers significant opportunities and benefits which may include:

  • Reduced costs;
  • Reduced risks;
  • Lower employee absence and turnover rates;
  • Fewer accidents;
  • Lessened threat of legal action;
  • Improved standing among suppliers and partners;
  • Better reputation for corporate responsibility among investors, customers, and communities;
  • Increased productivity, because employees are healthier, happier and better motivated.

We must appreciate that the power to succeed is in the ability and willingness of your workforce to deliver. This willingness can be impaired by alcohol and drug abuse badly. And that is why when it comes to addiction in the workplace, leading from the top is not an option but a must. The problem that can arise to defeat this initiative could be when the top managers and directors are the ones struggling with the scourge. If this is the case and it is quite common these days, then the organization must seek help immediately for her senior managers.

Terminating addiction stigmatization

Terminating addiction stigmatization

Terminating addiction stigmatization of any kind is important as it will help victims come out for help freely

Terminating addiction stigmatization: Is addiction a brain disease?

Is addiction a brain disease? Ideally, in addition, there is nothing like the physiological malfunction. Addiction may be defined in many different ways, however, for the purpose of this article, addiction is a chronic relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite the harmful consequences. Addiction is seen as a brain disease simply because drugs has the power of making changes in the brain. These change then alters the brain’s structure and how it works. When this happens users may develop certain characters and behaviors that are likely to be viewed negatively in the community. It is this negativity that makes observers within the community to start isolation and pointing fingers. That is why we want to create awareness on eradication and terminating addiction stigmatization to give the treatment a chance says doctor Dalal Akoury MD and also the founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center.

Terminating addiction stigmatization: Dopamine

All drugs of abuse, whether legal or illegal, cause large surges of dopamine in brain areas crucial for motivating our behavior—both the reward regions (such as the nucleus accumbens) as well as prefrontal regions that control our higher functions like judgment, decision making, and self-control over our actions. These brain circuits adapt to these surges by becoming much less sensitive to dopamine, a process called receptor downregulation. The result is that ordinary healthy things in our lives like all the pleasurable social and physical behaviors necessary for our survival (which are rewarded by small bursts of dopamine throughout the day) no longer are enough to motivate a person; the person will, therefore, need a big surge of dopamine from the drug just to feel temporarily okay and they must continually repeat this, in an endless vicious cycle.

Terminating addiction stigmatization: Addiction and Suicide

Finally, addiction and suicide are closely linked together and if you followed our last posting about the story of this grandfather who committed suicide because he could not control his drinking problem and the daughter who could also not share about the actual cause of his death freely because of shame and stigma, then you will notice that the shame was not just because the father had been an alcoholic, but because he committed suicide, out of hopelessness and helplessness at his inability to control the strong urges to drink. We all have a duty to play in stopping addiction stigmatization so that patients can seek treatment freely. It pains very painful that something that could be treated caused this great damage simply because of stigma, shame, and fear. Dear reader if you’re following this story, let this be the last one, addiction is a treatable condition and stigma or shame are just perceptions that should not result in death. Come quickly for help today and together let’s kick out of our lives the problem of drug addiction.
