Addiction is a disease just like any other...
“The mentality and behavior of drug addicts and alcoholics is wholly irrational until you understand that they are completely powerless over their addiction."
- Russell Brand
"Recovery is something that you have to work on every single day, and it's something that doesn't get a day off."

- Parents are very influential in the lives of children, and form the primary source of guidance for children in the early years. It is therefore important for parents to identify signs of drugs use among their children for early intervention. Usually, children are not looking to be addicted to drugs. They are probably experimenting on drugs, but the addictive nature of most drugs can be ruthless on their young, developing minds. If not checked, that little desire to experiment can easily lead to addiction. It is thus important for parents to identify the signs of alcohol and drug use early enough, for the purpose of early intervention. This offers a better chance for total recovery.

- What do you do when you suspect that your child is using drugs? This can be a very challenging time for a parent when they realize that their child could be using drugs. Some can blame themselves, others panic, while others react in a way that makes the whole situation worse. How then should a parent react? Here a few tips. First, gather the available evidence that shows that your child could be using drugs. This can also help you know what drug that your child is using. Check the behavior of the child to confirm for sure that they are actually using drugs. Create some time to talk to your child about it, ensuring that they are sober. Let the child know that you are just concerned about their welfare, and ensure privacy during the conversation. In the conversation, share your concerns and point out some of the evidence that you have seen. Avoid being judgmental and or confrontational, as this could create a barrier between you and the child. You should expect the child to get angry or deny. This is normal, as they are in denial. Assure them that you are available to talk to them. If it turns out that they are suing drugs, find a way to help them. Most likely they are just experimenting on drugs and may not need any rehabilitation. They just need some guidance.... Read more...
- The relationship between alcohol and central Kenya is a bit complicated. Drunkenness is a widely accepted social vice, but harsh economic conditions and heavy taxation on bottled alcohol has left bottled alcohol out of reach of the populace. The alternative to this would be traditional brews, which unfortunately, are not commercially competitive compared to the cheap, readily available second generation drinks. Entrepreneurs have discovered that instead of the time consuming process of fermentation or distillation, they can make quick money by producing alcohol through mixing neutral spirit, water and flavours. Users have followed suit by adopting these drinks, because it costs much less time and money for one to get tipsy, compared to using the traditional drinks. The implications of this trend are worrying. Alcohol related deaths are common in Central Kenya, Nakuru and Nairobi regions. Rarely do we get cases of people dying after consuming alcohol in western Kenya. The effects are also seen demographically, where the population is declining and nursery school enrollment keeps dropping. The fact that many people drink even before noon means that their productivity is low; a factor that makes them slip into more poverty. What is the remedy? In June 2015, president Uhuru Kenyatta ordered a crackdown on all forms of second generation drinks. This ended up as a momentary crackdown that lacked structures to sustain it for long. Again president Kenyatta has called for the same in February 2016, and we only wait to see if there will be a sustained effort. However, there is a need for an informed approach towards the fight against alcoholism in Central Kenya, and an understanding that the problem has a cultural factor. A culture cannot be changed through an act of parliament.... Read more...
