On a scale of 1-10, where 1 is the early bird and 10 is a bag of flesh, how difficult is it for you to get up in the morning?

March 24, 2018

Early birds tend to wake before their alarm screeches, while others repeatedly hit the snooze button until their finger bleeds. And then there are those who require a magic spell to detach them from their beds. Where do you fall?

If you found out your significant other had a drug or alcohol problem and talking with him or her didn’t help, how would you handle it?

October 6, 2017

Any dependence is formed gradually. At first, a person simply gets pleasure from intake of, for example, alcohol. Then a stable association is established in the brain: alcohol is a pleasure. The mechanisms of the alcohol and drug addiction are entirely the same. And the clinical manifestations – intoxication, craving for another “hit”, sweating in the absence of alcohol or drugs – are also the same. In the end, the person develops psychological dependence. If they don’t stop, the situation will be progressing. 

Imagine your chosen one with alcohol or drug addiction. What would you do? Whom would you contact? It is obvious that under such conditions, the psyche of a person, often – a woman who is living with the dependent person, is deformed. Alcoholism or drug addiction, affecting only one person, automatically affects the entire family. For example, a woman in some cases also begins to use alcohol or drugs, turns into a ruined, neglected woman who often looks much older than her real age. 

Children and teens often go by the path of their parents who are an example for them to follow. It is often the case that children, watching the situation in the family, do not want to study or work, get into a bad company, and so on. 

Some partners of the dependent people sincerely believe in the miraculous salvation of their partner from the destructive habit, but almost forget that without their support even the most effective means will not help in this situation. 

So, if your chosen one has an alcohol or drug addiction, what would you do?

  • I’d never have an issue with this in the first place
  • Ask friends and family to help intervene
  • I would seek professional help for him/her
  • I’d break off the relationship
  • I’m not sure

Are alcohol and marijuana equally as harmful?

December 27, 2016

Both alcohol and marijuana are considered to be toxic substances. However, both are used by people mainly for recreational purposes – to have fun, to rest. For this reason, both alcohol and marijuana are used primarily at parties, celebrations, big loud companies, and so on. Yet is it ok to compare the two in terms of the effect they have on the human body? In fact, for each person, both alcohol and marijuana have an individual influence. Someone may just have a good time and become cheerful; others may slow down in their reactions; still, for others, there will be a panic and sometimes even a depression. The duration of the effect of these substances also varies individually. At the same time, both alcohol and marijuana are recognized as narcotic substances. And the effect of drugs, as is known, is the effect on the change of consciousness. In this case, the effect goes away – the consequences remain.

So, what do you think, are alcohol and marijuana the same in their effect?

  • Yes
  • Alchohol is worse
  • Marijuana is worse
  • Not sure
