WHEN YOU NOD YOUR HEAD, SOMETIMES YOU ARE ACTUALLY AGREEING. MANY TIMES YOU ARE JUST ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU ARE RECEIVING THE INFORMATION (even if you are not agreeing at all).

YESTERDAY, I HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO TELL A 17 YEAR-OLD, WHO HAS UNRELENTING ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION, IN FRONT OF HIS MOTHER, THAT HE WAS MORE PRECIOUS TO HER THAN ANYTHING OR ANYONE IN HER LIFE. I THANKED HIM FOR ASKING FOR HELP. WHAT A GIFT, TO ME, AS A FATHER ON FATHER’S DAY, TO BE ABLE TO TRY AND GIVE HOPE AND HEALING TO A TEENAGER AND HIS FAMILY.

MUCH OF WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED, IN ORDER TO GET THROUGH OUR DAY AND TO MEET OUR DAILY OBLIGATIONS, WE HAVE NOT LEARN FROM A BOOK OR IN A CLASSROOM.

THANK YOU to all the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, friends’ parents, business partners, competitors, teachers, coaches, mentors, spiritual leaders, roommates, spouses, ex-partners and random people in our lives. Charles Tadros, M.D. June 19, 2021 Saint Louis, Missouri

ONE OF THE MORE FRUSTRATING ASPECTS OF ADDICTION IS THAT, EVEN WHEN AN ADDICT HAS MADE A DECISION TO TELL THE TRUTH, OR TO ASK FOR HELP, BETWEEN THEIR BRAIN AND THEIR LIPS THE MESSAGE IS HIJACKED AND OUT COMES A LIE INSTEAD.

Even when the truth is actually easier to tell, and not associated with consequences, many times, an addict cannot state a simple truth. Also difficult to understand, is when an addict will lie about topics or events which are totally unrelated to his/her addiction. Charles Tadros, M.D June 18, 2021 Saint Louis, Missouri

ONE OF THE MORE COMMON COGNITIVE ERRORS THAT WE DEVELOP WHEN WE FINALLY HAVE MONEY TO SPEND IS THAT, IN OUR EXCITEMENT, WE MENTALLY SPEND THE SAME DOLLAR MORE THAN ONCE.
