Healthy Living in Early Recovery

Alcohol, within the realms of dating, is commonly used to demolish fears and cultivate “liquid courage.” Perhaps drugs and alcohol make us feel more flirtatious, outgoing, or just overall likable. In general, dating can be extremely intimidating, uncomfortable, and even disappointing. When faced with the reality of doing all of that completely sober, some would gracefully bow out. However, many have done it. Recovery is hard, and dating in recovery is even harder - but many are willing to walk through fear in hopes of finding their significant other.   Many of us have used our addiction to propel the desirable personas suitable for varying situations. Whether we were looking to become more courageous, sociable, or even more willing to welcome vulnerability many of us sought out liquid courage to produce the desired effect. Maybe our only experience dating was wrapped up in the love affair with our beloved vices....

‘You got this’ is the message for up-and-coming women professionals on International Women’s Day from DIVERSEcity’s CEO

It’s International Women’s Day on March 8, 2019, with a theme of #balanceforbetter, and Neelam Sahota, CEO of not-for-profit DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society, knows firsthand what it takes for women professionals to take their equal place at the table. For starters, it takes planning and confidence — and a little risk-taking, Sahota shared at an International Women’s Day gathering at DIVERSEcity’s Community Campus this week. “I’m a planner,” Sahota said. “I’ve always known what my professional goals are at five years, 10 years and 20 years into my career. I never lost sight of those things, even when I took time away to focus on being a mother. For many women, especially for those where motherhood comes into the equation, we tend to hesitate and ask ourselves ‘Is it the right time for me?’ But there is no such thing as a perfect time.”   Sahota adds that it’s up...

Why Surrey residence singer/songwriter Amrit Bains loves music.

I am very passionate about creating original music with original ideas. I love the freedom of expression that I do express through my music. I believe that music should bring people closer to each others and help in removing the senseless divisions. When I write songs I think about the people of all backgrounds and people of all countries. So I love to write and sing in the language which is understood by most of the people all over the world. In my music and music videos I never promote drugs. In my belief the best high we get is from love and sharing love with people. This passion keeps me going....

Managing the Pains of an Office Job

Quick, which do you consider a worse fate—extreme boredom at work or physical pain from sitting all day at work? Boredom can feel mentally painful. Sitting, potentially with poor posture, all day can lead to physical pain. Both things will sap the energy you need to do your work. Must we split hairs? No, we musn’t. We’ll only split the topics here to help you attack them to feel more productive and healthy during your daily 8-plus hour stint. Combating the Mental Pains We might face a number of mental or emotional challenges at work that can range from too big a workload to complicated interpersonal relationships. Sometimes the boss goes overboard establishing unrealistic deadlines. Sometimes our cubicle partner is, well, annoying. Sometimes we’re bored. Science tells us that everyone gets bored and boredom usually presents itself as a sign to get moving. So, when you hit a rut, think:...

Finding my Purpose in Recovery from Heroin Addiction

In northwest Arkansas there is a tunnel that runs straight through a mountain in the Ozarks. When you approach the tunnel going 60 mph, you can hear the wind rushing past the car. You hear the tires spinning and creating traction on the road below you. The radio signal isn't very good in this area, so it is an obnoxious mixture of broken up country music and static. When you enter the tunnel, all of this suddenly changes. The orange fluorescent lights are dim. There is no wind rushing by. The radio completely cuts out and everything seems dark, still, and calm. This is how I felt the first time I tried heroin. I grew up in a cookie-cutter neighborhood where all of the brick houses look the same. The Home Owners Association requires that each house have one tree on each side of the sidewalk approaching the homes. Your...

Depending on the amount contributed, tailpipe emissions may be offset by up to 30 percent. In addition...

My Dissolution of Prescription Drug Abuse to Full Blown Cocaine Addiction

My whole life I was told to sit pretty and keep my mouth shut… little girls were meant to be seen not heard. I was pretty good at my job of doing this and was the little girl that dreams were made of. Sugar, spice, and everything nice. I smiled, said please and thank you, wore pretty pink dresses, and never disobeyed. Little did anyone know I was slowly dying inside. My little brother was born when I was 3 years old, from the day he came home he was not easy, and that’s putting it nicely. As he got older he was always getting into trouble and my parents were always dealing with him and I became invisible. Because he was so difficult even more pressure was put on me to be perfect, and not rock the boat. I was put in every extra curricular activity you can think...
