Alcohol Abuse – Getting Past the Old, Negative Information

When it comes to alcohol abuse, it amazes me that so much of the media continues to teach the disease model and all-or-nothing message of alcohol abuse.  Even WebMD – a contemporary and well trusted health information source published in its article Understanding Alcohol Abuse – the Basics, “The alcoholic's continual craving for alcohol makes abstinence -- an important goal of treatment -- extremely difficult. The condition is also complicated by denial: Alcoholics employ a range of psychological maneuvers to blame their problems on something other than drink, creating significant barriers to recovery. Historically, alcoholic behavior was blamed on a [...]

Alcohol Dependence – No Pain, No Gain?

We are all familiar with the adage, “No Pain, No Gain.”  In general it applies to exercise or working out, but it also relates to treatment for alcohol dependence.  If you are reading this blog, no doubt you have asked yourself, “Why do I drink?”  Of course there are a lot of reasons why – social pressure, stress, boredom, even physical dependency.  But probably one of the top reasons that people abuse alcohol is to escape from themselves or a situation.  While my guess is that this will be one of the least popular blogs on the site, it covers [...]

Breaking the Habit Cycle

We’re all pretty much familiar with Pavlov’s dog and the “conditioned response.” Basically, Pavlov would ring a bell (or some other type of signal) when he fed his dogs.
