Interview with an alcoholic part 5

QUESTION: Would it be fair to assume that you also suffered from depression during this period of time? Some of the symptoms that are peppered in your response meet the criteria for depression. (DISCLAIMER: Although I am not authorized to diagnose any mental illness.)ANSWER: If when you say depression you mean high anxiety you are right on target. By the time I was 10 to 12 years old I had stomach ulcers...…See More

Interview with an alcoholic part 4

Question:I want to play with your words for just a moment. You said that your addiction was a spiritual feeling. Behaviorally, I cannot observe "spiritual", but I can quazi-observe "feeling". In my world, that is a sensory activity. Which means if it feels, tastes, smells, looks, or sounds good, we do it and if it doesn't feel, taste, smell, look, or sound good, then we don't do it. For a very simplistic example, if I eat chocolate it is because I like the taste, smell, or feeling it gives me.…See More

Interview with an Alcoholic part 2

Question:I have heard from so many that they had to hit rock bottom, which it sounded like you did as well, before they decided to change their behaviors/lives and leave the addiction. What do you think has to be the starting point for recovery? Does every person have to hit their own rock bottom?...moreSee More

Interview with an alcoholic part 1

INTERVIEWER: I work as a behavior analyst, which is someone who helps others change their behaviors, and I have been contemplating the challenges of drug and alcohol addictions. I personally have never tried any drugs and I am not an alcoholic, but I want to help those who may be struggling with these challenges. I tend to view addictions in terms of only behaviors and then create ways to overcome those behaviors.QUESTIONS1) How did you do it? What made you decide nearly 20 years ago to leave…See More

Coming soon...

I am getting ready to start a new blog idea. I have someone that knows little about addiction at least from a thought process side, such as what causes an alcoholic or an addict to continue to keep going back even after things get bad. So he is going to ask me questions and I will answer them. Then I will share that interview on my blog. I think that this is a great opportunity to help him better understand the alcoholic mind and also help others do the same. I also think this will help me to…See More

Change

I like to stop this time of year, look back over my life and see how far I’ve come. Have there been any significant changes? I’m coming up on my twenty year anniversary in sobriety. As I look back, I got to thinking about how people that use drugs and alcohol, when they first get sober, have a distinct negative outlook. This is not unexpected. Especially when you think of what most alcoholics and addicts have been through. It can’t be helped. Think about it. We have been in the crap for so long…See More

Keith Smith posted a blog post

Perspective

I think perspective is one thing that is amazing. Every one of us has a different perspective which causes us to act one way or another. When you hear one side of a story you may think a certain way, until you hear the other side. Then you might think entirely differently. If you are close minded, you may be blocking yourself from really knowing the whole truth...moreSee More

Congratulations on landing your first client!  I would love to hear how it all happened.  

As far as advice for you with working with teenagers, I would make sure that he or she feels like you are serving them and not their parents.  At the same time, parents can be a good accountability resource when the teenager is wavering some.  You could set up a "commitment contract" with your teenage client saying that you will not involve the parent in your accountability process as long as they conduct your sessions and times in an honorable dependable fashion.  They will feel they can trust you, but the parent will have confidence that things are going well if you don't call on them.  Of course, the parent may want updates, but the meet of the responsibility to respond should be on the teen.  In the end, that is what young adults want.  To be given responsibility.  Hope this helps!

Hey Keith,

It was great meeting you the other day.  I love the fact that you are a student of the Automobile University while you drive your truck.  You are a wise man and I love your energy as well. 

Also, I want to encourage you to check out this group on 48days.net called Speak it Forward http://www.48days.net/group/speakerssuccess

Speaking has been one of the main reasons I have gotten coaching clients.  

 

I know you heard about Kent Julian a few times at the event (I heard his name at least 10 times from Dan).  I am in a coaching group of Kent’s and he is legit.  

 

Also, he has an awesome bootcamp http://speakitforward.com/trent-thomas/#comments

where he helps people develop a Speaking Business.  Check it out!  

 

Let me know if there is any way I can help you, Keith.

 

To further success,

Trent
