  • Amel if you finish your work and are around long enough to complete a project then you would see payment. When you disappear and a company has to wait on you and only you to finish your task that makes it hard to finish a project and thus you do not get paid nor do you get used on any other projects. The fact that you public show how angry and hurtful you are shows what type of person and programmer you are. Making this public effects your next client. I hope all of your future potential clients see how you and Martin are. Assuming you and Martin are not the same person. Who knows?

Understanding Addiction

  1. 1. ADDICTION<br />By Alistair Rhind<br />Consultant Addiction Therapist and Life Coach<br />http://www.addiction-recovery.co.uk<br />
  2. 2. Addiction<br />If you are reading this because you or your partner has a problem the most important thing you need to know is that recovery is possible.<br />
  3. 3. Addiction<br />Addiction is characterised by ambivalence and deluded thinking<br />Like Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde<br />The addict experiences two types of thinking<br />Rational Thinking<br />Irrational deluded Addiction thinking<br />
  4. 4. Addiction<br />We talk of the baffling nature of Addiction because it is a mystery to those affected by it. <br />Addiction baffles people on the sidelines<br />The Addict continues to use or drink despite the damage being caused<br />They seem oblivious to what seems obvious to the rest of us<br />
  5. 5. Addiction<br />Family & friends ask questions like: <br />What causes it it? <br />Is it a weakness? <br />Why can’t they just stop? <br />Are they just being willfuland wicked?<br />Is it my fault? <br />
  6. 6. Addiction<br />Are they bad people? <br />Can they get better? Will they ever quit? <br />Why can’t they just control it like other people? <br />If they really loved me wouldn’t they just stop? <br />Are they really angry because I’ve done something wrong? <br />
  7. 7. Addiction<br />A child asks; what have I done to upset Daddy? <br />What is wrong with me? Is it my fault that things feel so bad at home?<br />Everybody suffers when addiction is present<br />
  8. 8. Addiction<br /> This list of questions is virtually endless but always around the same theme; the baffling nature of addiction. And it is for most people a baffling condition – even many health professional are in the dark about the nature of this problem<br />
  9. 9. Addiction<br />This confusion manifests in the form of ambivalence - two opposing feelings and beliefs about the addictive behaviour. <br />“I want to drink/gamble/use/overeat etc -<br />I want to stop hurting and the problem to go away”<br />“I want my best friend - I don&apos;t want it to control me”<br />“I want to quit – I want to not quit”<br />
  10. 10. Addiction<br /> The addicted person will typically find themselves saying “That’s it, I quit, I can’t stand this anymore.” then later in the day or that week or perhaps next week their thinking has changed completely: “Maybe I could have just one, I’m in control, its my life, who cares anyway, I’m my own boss.” <br />
  11. 11. Addiction<br />The net result is a return to the addictive behaviour - the drinking, gambling, starving, drug taking and so on.<br />
  12. 12. Addiction<br />Why Me?<br />
  13. 13. Addiction<br />Relatives and friends feel confused, angry, let down and hurt and the addict feels temporarily justified in his behaviour, swiftly followed by more remorse and then confusion – he or she asks of themselves - who am I and what do I really want?<br />The Addict is confused and lost and feels terribly alone <br />
  14. 14. Addiction<br />Lost & Alone<br />
  15. 15. Addiction<br /> Addiction Counselling or rehabilitation seeks to end this confusion for the addict enabling them to feel more certain about what they want to do about their addictive behaviour. The goal is to help them find their will again and to understand the nature of the lies and delusions built into all addictions.<br />
  16. 16. Addiction<br /> Without intensive professional and expert help, the addict continues to suffer from delusions and is locked into his/her destructive behaviour. <br />
  17. 17. Addiction<br /> With help they can learn to permanently change their destructiveness and to feel good again.<br />
  18. 18. Addiction<br />Help is the most important thing that the addict and his family need.<br />Get Help Now - it will make a difference<br />
