Repeat Offenders

Click for whole Article

Interesting article read I found doing Sober World posts this morning. Understanding repeat DUI psychology and more importantly the behaviors and personalities behind them - excerpts from this article - quite good.

“There are some people who frankly don’t have a developed sense of empathy” (hmm lol)

“Alcohol impairs judgment and lessons inhibitions, so people who don’t intend to drive go out and have too much to drink and the lack of inhibition and poor judgment kicks in ... NONE of this is an excuse, and it’s important that we clarify that”

One day we will look a bit more seriously at what we unleashed over a century ago. Social reform is coming, already seeing it on Scotland and Ireland where the Alcohol abuse is so huge people are craving tougher laws and stiffer penalties - literally asking politicians for MORE controls and seeking an answer to WHY as a people they consume so much there. Whole countries in recovery.

I will not discourage the right to self medicate, however I encourage the need to self educate even more. Knowing what I do now about Teen Permanent Brain Damage, Cancer risks, global death tolls... I may have had some more respect for what our states push on us on every street corner. Now in CT they do it 7 days a week!

Just because it's legal, doesn't mean it's not incredibly potentially dangerous and unhealthy and kills millions every year and costs our US economy alone $250B in lost productivity and totals $500B when including incarceration costs.

PA System

Parental Alienation, manipulation - on EITHER side of a divorce is hurtful, harmful. Friends have introduced me to professionals and groups for fathers. I am lucky to have developed a great program of support. This concept of self mutilation is thankfully foreign to me (now).

However, many dads (and moms) just get angry, hurt, self medicate and get depressed. In Sober World I see the suicide stats - almost 75% involve alcohol... countless millions of families are fueled into oblivion by 100% legal alcohol abuse.

Current family law allows for a lot of psychological abuse before DCF, Police and others will bother to get involved - mostly because of massive case loads.

The root cause for many of these issues?  You may want to loo at the massive alcohol production, marketing, distribution globally in the past century.  It is taking its toll.... Millions every year die from various causes... kids, teens, adults, seniors. Tens of millions more suffer in life... fiscal ruin, divorces, families torn... the list is long. All from toxic addictive Alcohol that we crave so much.

In recovery for almost 3 years - and founder of Sober World, I have to say - I love my simple honest spiritual life now... you feel your emotions a lot more... but that makes all of this all the more painful. I do what I can - when I can to learn and share.

Like Cancer, Cigarettes ... we will eventually change social attitudes towards alcohol. We WILL "Turn Down the Volume" when enough die every year that we actually ALL take notice. 3,3000,000 a year (as of 2014) is not quite enough yet for the media to get stirred up... yet.

There are so many positive benefits to the world supporting the initiatives of the World Health Organization to reduce NCD's by 2015. See some of them on the slide show at:

Get educated - it's a huge global issue that affects most families. Be a part of the solution. It will take time... 10 miles in -  10 miles out as they say.  Let's turn around!  :-)  pf
