How Do I Overcome Anger?

lifaqsThis is a tough one, right?  Anger can have a stronghold worse than any addiction.  If fact, it may be a feeder to an addiction.  Do you find yourself drinking because you want to calm the inner beast?  It happens.

Anger escalates.  It starts small and then erupts into a seething blast of inappropriate words and actions.  It can really get us into trouble, destroy relationships and lead into major depressive episodes.

It can be conquered.  You can have a better life forward.

How Do I Break An Addiction?

lifaqsEvery week someone comes to me with this question.  They may or may not ask it outright. Recently a woman appeared at the door of our community center looking for this answer. She has four children in state custody.  Her life is spinning.   She is battling addiction to prescription drugs originally given for a plaguing back condition.  This is common.  Where do you start?

Good Answer:

Addictions are most often tied to your emotions.  Ask yourself some tough questions.  What is it that drives me to choose the addictive habit or substance?  What feeling or emotions tend to precede my addictive choices?  Is there a frustration underlying my choices that keeps repeating? Get into an action based solution. SOLUM Community offers a 90 break through workshop – THINK – based on research and evidence based cognitive self restructuring.  You are not going to break an addiction in a minute or through any quick fix.  This is a good place to start and it will get you moving on a decisive path.THINK Click Here for Schedule and more information
