Mechanics of Addiction and the Road out of a Personal Hell
It is the nightmare of every household. Thousands of families have been ripped apart and suffered its consequences. Drugs that gave false hopes and ruined the dreams of our youth; a poison in disguise of a “happy hour”... Drug and alcohol addiction.Drug and alcohol addiction destroys the lives of tens of millions of Americans each and every year, and the current pandemic has made this problem significantly worse. Our guest, Bobby Newman started an organization called Angel Life Coaches — a non-profit organization created to present vital information and open the door to overcoming this plague.Here is a bit about Bobby Newman: In his early days, he himself struggled with addiction for a long time even facing federal prison for this cause. Later on, he received help that helped him escape that addiction which then brought his focus to help families turn situations from tragic to hopeful as he had experienced.In the eighteen years since completing his drug rehabilitation journey, Bobby has educated more than a hundred thousand youth on the dangers of drug abuse and helped thousands of people with drug or alcohol rehabilitation. Many of those he helped with their addictions as a substance abuse counsellor and now many more as a drug intervention specialist.Contact Bobby:www.newmaninterventions.com  A few resources about the dangers of drugs:Marijuana - Cannabis (Marijuana) DrugFacts - National Institute on Drug ... › publications › cannabis-marijuanaVaping & Marijuana Concentrates - DEA.govFentynal -  Fentanyl Has Transformed The Illicit Drug Trade.

Molding us in ways and belief systems about how girls ‘should be’. How the world has changed its views of gender roles since our childhoods. *The teen years- experiencing ‘firsts’- flirting with adulthood, getting our hearts broken and trying to figure out who we are. ….unsure of who we are- comparing ourselves to others- liking boys- OH BOY!- experimenting and risk taking- the pressure to be perfect- seeking autonomy.* The twenties and thirties- when the world judges us by our relationship status. Establishing ourselves and feeling we have to achieve certain goals. Timetables for milestones differ- this can make us afraid. Second guessing ourselves and our choices. Pleasing others above all. The potential for losing ourselves in motherhood.* Does life really begin at 40? The need to please begins to wane. Time to focus more on ourselves. Survived many ups and downs ( no one learns anything in the good times). Often in the ‘sandwich generation’ between kids and aging parents, which can be daunting… girlfriends really matter. Coming to terms with society seeing us as ‘older’. * The fifties and beyond- everything we have beenSupport the showSupport our show my creating a review and sharing to your friends. coming again in December!
