the perfect healthy life

The perfect healthy life

The myth of the perfect healthy life In my years as a psychotherapist and meditation teacher, I’ve noticed that many people suffer because they compare their lives to some idealized image of how life is supposed to be. This is the myth of the perfect healthy life.

Codependency and addiction recovery

Obsessive Thinking in Codependency and addiction recovery You may find you spend hours each day, or lie awake at night, worrying about your situation.  This may take the form of fantasies in which drinking becomes physically impossible for the alcoholic, or you may scheme about techniques to avoid drinking situations.  Or you may rehearse your lecture to the addict.  You may torture yourself worrying where that person is, and with whom.

Addiction leads you to insanity

How is it that people who suffer from addiction, just won’t stop. They won’t listen to reason. They simply refuse to be restored to sanity in addiction. They get beaten up in the boxing ring day after day in life. The insanity is that they go back for more each and every morning! Many people with addictions can identify with the above quote. They abuse drugs or alcohol hoping to recreate an earlier high, make themselves feel normal, or solve other problems.…

The rewards of addiction recovery

THE REWARDS OF ADDICTION RECOVERY

12 OF THE REWARDS OF ADDICTION RECOVERY When first entering recovery, many of us find ourselves with a few doubts and reservations. We fear that it might become harder to make friends once we can no longer go to a bar and buy a few rounds.

Gambling as an addiction

Looking at gambling as an addiction Let us pretend for a moment that you are the commander in a nuclear missile silo. You are in charge of a bomb. If you think about it, this is exactly the kind of control that you want over your life. You want to be in control of your thinking, feeling, and behavior. You want to be in control all of the time, not just some of the time. With gambling, just like using…

Finding help for self harm and cutting

Understanding self harm and cutting While self-harm is not an emotional or psychiatric illness in itself, it usually suggests that one is present. Finding Help for self harm and cutting requires working a programme that addresses both the disease of addiction and the problem of self-injurious behaviour. Self-harm can also include less obvious ways of hurting yourself or putting yourself in danger, such as driving recklessly, binge drinking, taking too many drugs, and having unsafe sex. Because cutting and other…
