For more on Parents & Addicts In Need, to follow on social media, the Don't Hide The Scars Podcast, to get involved and donate https://linktr.ee/painnonprofit Parents & Addicts in Need's Founder Flindt Andersen and Jason LaChance sat down with Thomas Figlioli the author of 'That's What Junkies Do'. We talked about Thomas' troubled home life and how that led him down a path of addiction. It started with stealing cigarettes from his cousin and drinking to mask his insecurities and so he could talk with girls & other friends. He quit his hockey team because he just wanted to drink & hang out. In college, he was a smart student, but didn't go to class, and used his parent's divorce as a reason for not going. He was given a deal to get a 3.4 GPA and eventually graduated with the Dean's Scholarship helping him along the way. After college, he got a job as a bartender at an Irish Pub in his New York neighborhood. He eventually got an additional job offer to be a 'bookie', gambling and keeping track of bets. One night, he decides to try ecstasy and ends up doing it 7 times that same night. After that, he started using cocaine as well. This quickly spiraled out of control by taking up to an 8-ball of coke every night, leading to various issues including DT shakes. His aunt told him his skin was gray and he realized he had to see a doctor. After a quick stint with prescription drugs, he was admitted to a psych ward. He started going to the AA meetings in his hospital. It helped at first but didn't really connect with him fully at the time. Soon after, he was back on the streets using drugs again, but this time he almost committed suicide. He was smoking crack, collecting cans, and using heroin every day. He finally reached out for help and was able to seriously and earnestly commit to rehab. He would do well for a while, but got addicted to Vicodin for another 8 years, and went into rehab again for the 3rd time. Thomas was always a fan of memoirs, mafia stories & real-life depictions of actual events put into writing. When Thomas got out of his most recent treatment, his mentor told him to put it all down... describing how his life was now & how it used to be manageable before alcohol and drugs came into the picture. It sparked something in him & inspired him to speak at meetings and get more involved in the recovery process by sharing his story. At the time, He was working on a garbage truck in New York and shared one of his stories with a co-worker, who inspired him to become an author. 3 years later, his first book "That's What Junkies Do" was officially published.

In this week's episode, Coach Blu and our Athletic Director Marissa deeply dive into the human brain and the hormone that can make addiction recovery challenging. The brain is the most complex organ in the body. This three-pound mass of gray and white matter sits at the center of all human activity—you need it to drive a car, enjoy a meal, breathe, create an artistic masterpiece, and enjoy everyday activities. The brain regulates your body's essential functions, enables you to interpret and respond to everything you experience, and shapes your behavior. In short, your brain is you—everything you think and feel and who you are. Listen as the talk about D.O.S.E. the four chemical we as humans strive for. D is for doapmine. Dopamine is a type of neurotransmitter. Your body makes it, and your nervous system uses it to send messages between nerve cells. That's why it's sometimes called a chemical messenger. Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. It's a big part of our unique human ability to think and plan. It helps us strive, focus, and find things interesting. O is for oxytocin.  In the brain, oxytocin acts as a chemical messenger and has an important role in many human behaviours including sexual arousal, recognition, trust, romantic attachment and mother–infant bonding. As a result, oxytocin has been called the 'love hormone' or 'cuddle chemical'. S is for serotonin. In the brain, serotonin helps with mood regulation and memory, but it also has important jobs in other parts of the body.  In fact, most of the serotonin in your body is found in your gut, not your brain. The intestines produce almost all of the body's serotonin supply, and serotonin is required to promote healthy digestion. Elsewhere in the body, serotonin helps with sleep, sexual function, bone health, and blood clotting. E is for endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals produced by the body to relieve stress and pain. They work similarly to a class of drugs called opioids. Opioids relieve pain and can produce a feeling of euphoria. They are sometimes prescribed for short-term use after surgery or for pain-relief.

Ever bet your friend a freeze pop you could throw a ball farther than they can, bet your dad Philly was going to beat New York in the game on Sunday, lost your entire life savings on a trip to a gas station casino in Montana? The desire to gamble is an unexplainable phenomenon which tugs at many of our brains (and wallets) from time to time. Either you've got it or you don't. But what is even more unexplainable is luck. Is it real? Why do some people seem to have it in bushels and other people (like our very own Pirate Chef) seem to take an unbelievable amount of bad beats.

Dr. Rob and Tami answer a painful question from a listener. Should you get back with your partner that continues to act out? A relationship is a two-way street, if he is not putting in the effort to be a better husband and father, then you need to start taking care of yourself and do what's best for your children. An addict will always find an excuse to “put it off.” It's painful and tragic, but Dr. Rob and Tami have a support group for betrayed spouses who need to heal from the pain their addict has caused.   TAKEAWAYS: [:30] Can a SA be a sponsor even when they haven't completed all the steps? [4:45] Acting in service of others is always going to be a good thing. [5:45] Dr. Rob, can you tell me a little bit more about DBT? [7:40] Is there a specific order for recovery when you have more than one addiction? [12:10] How many meetings a week should an addict attend? [17:20] I separated from my addict. Now what? Should we divorce or try to keep working on it? [23:45] Why would someone fantasize having sex with strangers? [26:40] No one can control their fantasies! [29:50] You can set expectations but you can't make them happen.   RESOURCES: Seekingintegrity.com Email Tami: Tami@Seekingintegrity.com Sexandrelationshiphealing.com Intherooms.com Out of the Doghouse: A Step-by-Step Relationship-Saving Guide for Men Caught Cheating, by Robert Weiss Prodependence: Moving Beyond Codependency, by Robert Weiss Sex Addiction 101: A Basic Guide to Healing from Sex, Porn, and Love Addiction, by Robert Weiss Cruise Control: Understanding Sex Addiction in Gay Men, by Robert Weissmklllkkkjlj

Emotional intelligence (otherwise known as emotional quotient or EQ) is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. Emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at school and work, and achieve your career and personal goals. It can also help you to connect with your feelings, turn intention into action, and make informed decisions about what matters most to you. To develop a better foundation, give this a listen.

Shay also opens up about how her addiction began to flourish throughout various moments in her life during her early twenties, her decision to use alcohol as a bandaid for postpartum depression following the birth of her second child, and how the COVID-19 pandemic sent her to the deepest depths into her addiction.

There was a time when I couldn't keep a needle out of my arm, and Mallory had to stop and buy me a carton of cigarettes on the drive to rehab. I came from nothing. I've lost everything I've had, built it back up, lost it again, and then built it again. But it hasn't always been easy or conflict-free—Mallory and I constantly remind each other that the problems we worry about today are problems the old versions of ourselves would have died for. So, how can you build the life of abundance and love that you dream of? On this episode of Destined to Be, I'm challenging you to think bigger! To step out of your ego and forget what you know so you can FINALLY open the door to learning and understanding more. We'll talk about how to step out of yourself and allow a Higher Power to take you to new levels. I'll share some of my personal stories of how I got from rehab to where I am today that will inspire you to take the needed steps to build the life you've dreamed of. Listen in to learn more about how to stop standing in the way of the life that is more than you ever imagined.

How do we make our ideal reader say Oh—THIS is the book for me?In our first two episodes, we dug down into why we write and how to share that why with the reader. In the last episode, we hung a quick right and got really practical about that reader and how to reach her–in other words, we talked about the market and why it’s important to understand where your book will sit on the shelf if you want the right readers to find it.In this episode, we’re going to talk about what happens when one of those potential readers picks your book up off that shelf–and turns it over. That means we’re talking jacket copy! You might have heard writing advice that basically says, quit daydreaming about what your cover will look like before you’ve written your book–but we’re not talking about the cover art. Jacket copy is important and drafting it now will help you find your story. It’s the promise you make to the reader–so the sooner you write it, the harder you can focus on keeping it–or changing it. Plus, it’s useful in a whole lot of ways.Like your point, your jacket copy is probably something you will come back to again and again as you write your book—but every time, it will help you hone your mission and clarify why you’re still sitting in that chair, typing away.This is the fourth episode in the 10-part Blueprint for a Book Series. Start with Step 1, do the work (we’ll give you an assignment every week), and in 10 weeks, you’ll have a solid foundation for a first draft or revision of your project that will help you push through to “the end”. For the details on the challenge, and to sign up for weekly encouragement, bonuses and the chance to win a blueprint critique, head to authoraccelerator.com/amwritingblueprintchallenge. YOUR ASSIGNMENTWrite jacket copy for the book you want to write. Study the jacket copy of the comp titles you found in Step 3 to get a feel for how it should sound. Make it no more than 250 words.(Note: We suggest you download a Blueprint answer workbook to keep track of your 10 assignments. That will make it easier to revise, review and come back to your work. Click to grab yours for fiction or nonfiction. If you are writing narrative memoir (a story), use the fiction workbook and assignments. If you are writing self-help/memoir, use the nonfiction workbook and assignments. Prefer paper? Tape the assignment into your journal and make a nice big heading so you know: This is Step 4.

Dr. Rob and Tami bust a common lie addicts often tell themselves; that they can go through the recovery process “by themselves.” Think again! Addiction is a disease of disconnection. The only way out of it is learning how to connect, that is the essence of what recovery is. Addicts have to learn how to be vulnerable, learn empathy, and uncouple the narrative that they're terrible people.   TAKEAWAYS: [:25] My betrayed girlfriend of 10-plus years will not participate in the recovery process. Is there anything I can do? [2:35] Not everyone wants to go to therapy. You can't make them go. [6:40] Everyone can make lemonade out of lemons! [7:25] I'm terrified to leave my house because my SA said he'd act out anytime I was gone. How can I be strong in my boundaries? [15:05] What is “Three Circle” and should we do it?
