    29 Jan 2015 | 2:03 pm

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:38 am
    Although alcohol is the most important risk factor of alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver, less is known about the significance of different patterns of drinking. Currently scientists believe that cirrhosis is a function of the volume of alcohol consumed irrespective of patterns of drinking. Investigators have now established that alcohol drinking pattern has a significant influence on the risk of cirrhosis and that daily drinking increases that risk compared with drinking less frequently.

  • Your Past

    12 Jan 2015 | 5:58 pm
    I love this quote from Joel Osteen. A reminder that we don’t need to be defined by what has gone before. Today is a new day. Make it count: Your past does not determine who you are. Your past prepares you for who you are to become.
  • Characteristic Narcissist :HAS TO BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION...ALL THE TIME.

    12 Jan 2015 | 12:23 pm
    9. SHE HAS TO BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION…ALL THE TIME. (This need is a defining trait of narcissists and particularly of narcissistic mothers for whom their children exist to be sources of attention and adoration. Narcissistic mothers love to be waited on and often pepper their children with little requests. “While you’re up…” or its equivalent is one of their favorite phrases. You couldn’t just be assigned a chore at the beginning of the week or of the day, instead, you had to do it on demand, preferably at a time that was inconvenient for you, or you had to…

    12:07AM I can’t sleep. I have Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” stuck in my head. Everytime I listen to that song it just makes me so happy. I feel alive. I feel like someone knows me, someone hears me – and they are calling to my inner soul. The girl I want to be. Happy and carefree – living her life like she doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. She knows she is a good person, she knows she is kind hearted. She also knows she is not perfect but she is okay with that. She embraces life and lives it to the full. She follows her dreams and listens to her heart. She has her…
  • Characteristic Narcissism: Manipulates your emotions to feed on your pain.

    12 Jan 2015 | 11:22 am
    10. manipulates your emotions in order to feed on your pain. Manipulation in general is the sole tool used in my mothers attempt to gain anything in life. Everything imaginable can be manipulated to her benefit, and emotions are definitely on that list. An expert at picking arguments, my mother would and still does feed on drama. Twisting the small reality of a situation into something huge. She will pick at small things, until the person she is picking on (previously her partner and almost certainly her children) are worn down, should you choose not to argue back it will be a case…

  • I've Still Got It, Baby.

    28 Jan 2015 | 6:48 am
    I did it. It happened. I drank. And — fuck man. Coffee is good. All it took was one quintuple-shot-Americano. And, after nearly three months without coffee or caffeine, one sip was all I needed. GAME FUCKING ON. Caffeinate me. More. MORE! And, there it is, right in front of me. I’ve still got it, baby. After all this time, it remains — all or nothing. And, I concede; moderation is something that I just can’t do. I stand face to face with the thing I’ve known for years, but, I still want to ignore. — I’m an addict. But, really, addiction is just the…

    Note: This review contains SPOILERS! A dark highway. A lone car with two teenage girls. For a trucker – a predator – it’s the ideal situation. Forcing the car off the road, incapacitating the driver and her passenger, transporting the girls to a secret, underground location. It’s laughably easy for the Lizard King. And a nightmare for the girls’ parents. Plot Overview: Timing, Crime and Death Cody Hoyt is a rugged, erratic, occasionally unethical cop. He justifies planting evidence as a way to point suspicion in the right direction. The problem? His boss wants him gone, and Cody’s…

  • First Rule of DWD – Go Big or Go Home

    29 Jan 2015 | 3:14 am
    Well that was more prophetic than I thought.   I ended my last post on DWD (Droning While Drunk) mentioning the fact that perhaps more attention would be given to irresponsible operating an unmanned vehicle after one crashed in the White House lawn.    Not only has it gotten the drone operator in hot water, it turned out that the reason for the crash was…DWD.  Go Big or Go Home, but probably not a good idea when it’s the  home of the POTUS. Drunk Spy Crashed the White House Drone The man who flew his drone into a tree at the White House early Monday morning works for the…
  • Droning While Drunk and other Crimes of the Future

    26 Jan 2015 | 8:00 am
    This idea for a story has been sitting in my drafts folder for a couple of months.  It’s amazing how fast things are moving on all technological fronts. The post was originally inspired by an accident involving a drone that hit an unsuspecting person at a football game here locally – Tuscaloosa police searching for operator of drone that fell on fan during game days.  I was going to elaborate on how I thought we would probably see more of this and perhaps the introduction of some new laws and regulations; specifically focusing on what officials would or could do if the drone…
  • Higher Power’s Whisper

    21 Jan 2015 | 5:11 pm
    I heard this on The Current and for some reason thought it might have to do with recovery. After watching the video, the verdict is still out, but it undoubtedly is dealing with issues of youth substance use. If you take the first image of the kids drinking in front of a “Dead End” sign, add the fact that the narrator never appears to be doing drugs or drink himself, and throw in the chorus chants of “I am the Savior” and “I hear God’s Whisper”; I would like to think the meaning is somewhat positive. Hmmm. Here’s my take… this youth is…
  • Beware The Pooch Hooch

    18 Jan 2015 | 5:27 pm
    Alcohol abuse can sometimes extend beyond the human condition. Pet owners were unwittingly getting their sometimes unruly or nervous dogs soused by spiking their drinking water with a “calming” potion by the name of Good Dog Pet Calming Supplement.  Fortunately, pet supply giant Petco has pulled the product off their website and shelves, raising awareness that even though the supplement (Made in China) claims its active ingredients are a combination of four flower essences known for soothing properties; the real effect is brought on by the fact that is 26 proof pooch hooch.

    What is boredom? First of all, boredom has a lot to do with your energy levels. If you are feeling relaxed and not really bothered about the outside world, you are unlikely to feel bored. Boredom usually happens when you have a bit of energy needing to be spent and nothing to spend it on.

  • What are Alcoholic Triggers?

    Kevin O'Hara
    29 Dec 2014 | 6:57 am
    Alcoholic triggers are like little switches in your head that create a thought. That thought triggers an impulse to do something, normally subconsciously, and that impulse leads to an action. Triggers are neither good or bad, they are just part of the system. They are the links that lead you from one automatic action to another. They act as reminders that you need to do something. They are the bonds that make your life tick over from one action to another. A famous example of a trigger is the bell used to induce saliva in Pavlov’s dog experiments.

  • How Much Your Memory Will Improve Without The Alcohol Drug?

    Kevin O'Hara
    23 Dec 2014 | 8:39 am
    My thinking has definitely improved, but I can't believe how much my memory has improved since I quit drinking. I’m not the only one who has noticed this. Every heavy drinker knows the feeling of waking up in the morning and not remembering what you did the night before. This is because when ethanol is in contact with your brain cells, your brain finds it difficult to encode information. That means that your brain finds it hard to assimilate new information.
