Community Bulletin - January 19 edition
One of the things people enjoy about alcohol is that it lowers inhibitions. This creates the experience of finding it easier to do certain things: public speaking, approaching someone we find attractive, getting over social anxiety, and the like. However, the more we rely on a substance to create a chemical effect to help us with our behavior, the more we need the substance to do the same thing and the more anxious we feel about doing those things without the substance. This is a recipe for psychological dependence. The longer road of practice and discipline will increase anxiety in the short term but, over time, will lower your anxiety response and increase confidence and proficiency. You will not need a substance to do those things. Plus, you get to avoid things like hangovers, liver damage, weight gain, risk of diabetes, etc. Thank you to Brian Crockett of Brian Crockett Counseling for this Brain Boost. #buildingbrightbrains
