People with Alcoholism, Drug Addiction and Eating Disorders, are they to Blame? | Moor Confidence


The stigma is that people with eating
disorders and problematic use of alcohol and drugs are often thought as problems
that are self-inflicted. I think it’s easy to say that the self-inflicted, I
think the reality is they happen because something’s triggered them. I don’t think
people just become – have a problem with booze overnight, I think it’s because
other stuff’s happened in life. If you think about homeless people, you hear the
stories where you know, it was a bloke in a normal job and he’s lost his job and
you know he’s lost his house and the wife’s left him because of it because he
can’t support them. And then he ends up you know on the streets
homeless. Again from my own experience there are times where I’ve had
quite tough times and I remember when my dad was really ill in hospital before
he died and I used to get back from hospital and I’d have quite a few large
whiskeys. Just to numb everything and I think it can be really easy to spiral
out of control. And so is that that my fault? Yes it is I suppose, but the point
would be there’s always something that triggers somebody. I think in most
things in life, male and female to be honest, young and old.
Something happens and it creates a domino effect and you sometimes don’t
know where it ends up.
