The Dirty Tricks of Alcohol and Other Drugs

Alcohol and other drugs have many dirty tricks. They tell us that they can make us feel good. And of course they do. For a short time! It's what happens during and after drinking that's the problem. But in the moment, they definitely make us feel good.


But so many dirty tricks...pretending that they can make us feel OK. Although I admit they never promise that it's forever. That's the sneakiness of them...


They can make us feel good, even feel happy

They can make time stand still

They can make all of our problems and worries go away

They can help us sleep and relax

They can make Anxiety and Depression magically disappear

They can make us think that we are doing OK

They can make us want to hang out with them (wine, beer, spirits) more and more... every day...so a trip to the bottle shop is needed, to buy a bottle...or two...


Such dirty tricks when so much else is going on...

the cost...to the budget, to ones' own health and wellbeing...to relationships...
