3 Easy Steps to Prevent Drug Addiction For Parents



This topic is mainly from my personal experience and some are from things I found online. I will provide additional links below for you to be familiar with this topic.

In Re-Re we believe that parents play a vital role in preventing drug addiction for their children. They are the once who are with them 24/7.  So I have compiled these for them to know how to prevent drug addiction for their teens.

 

1. Know the dangers of using drugs. As a parent you have to educate yourself on the dangers of using drugs. By educating yourself you can also educate your children. Share what you know but not your prejudice. Always remember: Drugs destroy Health, Work and Relationships.
2. Know your children. You have to be aware of your children's whereabouts. You have to know who they hangout with.
3. You have to encourage your children to make positive decisions in life. You should also be aware of the choices they make. 
4. Do not hesitate to ask for help. The Re-Re program is always ready to help you.


 Most parents failed to do this. Parenting doesn't stop by providing more than enough on the table. You have to communicate to your children. Give them emotional security. Take opportunities to talk. Let them know how you feel about drugs but don't scare them. Be realistic. Say what you mean and mean what you say because the point you are trying to make is really what matters. Don't just talk, LISTEN TO THEM. 


 

You have to create a safe environment for your children. You have to be involved. Be a Bogo City Drug Warrior. Be vigilant. Report suspicious behaviors. And cooperate with your neighbors.

Tim Kurt: The Vine Superstar


Here's another one from my hometown that I am a fan of. He is this vine superstar with a huge number of followers. As far as I know he was the first one who started this vines here and everyone suit to follow. 

 

He is very funny even without trying. I also know for a fact that this kid could bust a move like his older sibling. I think he could put it down better than Fritz (sorry). 

 

Charged up. And gives zero f*cks to the haters. That's how he roll. That's also why I love to watch him when he does his thing.

Bogo City's Rehabilitation Reintegration Program



Rehabilitation Reintegration Program was created by the Bogo City Officials  headed by the Vice Mayor Maria Cielo Martinez. The program was formed to address the needs of those who are addicted to drugs and would like to get sober. It was formally launched last October 17, 2016.
Re-Re is a self help group for drug addicts. The term maybe confusing. In a nutshell, it is a group of individuals currently addicted to drugs wanting to be sober. The group is a source of guidance, assistance and encouragement for every individual. It is also a safe place to get support and discuss the challenges in a non-parental and non judgmental manner.

 


 Re-Re Program is using a fellowship and a set of guided principles. The 12 steps to Sobriety adapted from Narcotics Anonymous. Re-Re is not only limited to one kind of drug but it is open to all types of drug addiction. 

Re-Re is set to help an individual accept his addiction which is very crucial in their recovery. Since the program is very young. Every individual is encouraged to express their struggles while battling addiction. With the help of fellow drug addicts, they can explore ways on how to make amends with their past mistakes and doings. Together they learn how to live a new life, free from old unhealthy habits and ways of behaving. They are also asked to maintain every individual's privacy by not discussing anything to non- members of the fellowship. Confidentially is paramount to the group. After all feelings are checked, a drug testing is done. This is to validate sobriety.

 

Anyone who is willing to get clean and sober. Although we discouraged anyone who had drug addiction and another mental illness. However we can also help find a treatment suitable for them.

Boys from the Hood






I say yow, thats my boys from the hood. They are always there for me as I am always there for them. They always make me smile like a child on a rainy day.

I really love the fact that we always support each other do our own thing. No one is trying to damper on each other's sunshine.

When the boys talk girls and when we girls talk boys like no one is judging. We can just let each other hang our dirty linens out in the open.

When someone's trippin running their mouth like they know all the issues about the crew. They might just have to go packing coz we wont back down.

I like the fact that we could just be living big. Rolling out in town. Rockin it out VIP style in Cebu. Hanging out in the beach in Bantayan. We can be all that. Work hard party harder they say.

Thoughts on Friends Growing Apart

I'm so sorry. This is not one of those happy post. This is one of those sad phase of my life. Sometimes shit happens and you lost touch with your friends. You grow apart. This post is dedicated to address that elephant in the room. No one seems to talk about it but today I am going to. So why do friends grow apart?

Sometimes we just have to let it die without even  saying goodbyes to each other. Sometimes when you see that friend you just have to pretend that everything is fine and just remember the times when you had each other best.

Sometimes the level of friendship is not parallel to each other. You see that friend like they are your world but to them you are the one that is always available. This one you just have to let it die.

Sometimes you've known your friend for so long that they thought you still are the same person back then. Like you guys are still in high school and it's now 2016. This is now. You have matured. You have changed and you don't live there anymore. You are no longer the same person you used to be. Drop it and leave.

Sometimes people use you as a shield. Bring all the drama to your face and let you handle all the negativity All by yourself. And because you are a good friend you let them use you. You fight all their battles for them. Handle all the drama and that subsides they just leave you like nothing happened. You have to cut this kind of people out of your life.

I have learned that a real friend lives in the now. The one's that never leave by your side. Someone who has the same level of priorities with you.

I also learned that you should never hesitate to cut people out of your life. You have an option. Use it.

Home Sweet Home

Hey what's up. It's been so long since I have posted something on this blog. Nope, I wasn't considering ending this blog. I was just busy writing and doing other things.
So, it has been 10 years since then. Since I was 19 I've been on this blog pouring my heart and mind into this.
I still remembered the day I started writing. I've never felt so alone back then. Afraid of what people might think of if I express myself out loud. Ten years on and no longer afraid. I couldn't believe it. It never felt this good looking back at the old me and making this blog as my home sweet home.

Passion

Not everyone knows the reason why I took up nursing. Back in the day, everyone who took up nursing have one main goal. To search for greener pastures. Im not gonna lie, it was mine too but my main reason was very personal. I want to understand what was going on around me. By that I mean my older brother. Growing up nobody explained to me what was happening to him. All I know is that he was crazy. None of my family told me about his drug addiction. Later on as I pursue this career I begin to understand him. I found my answers. All along HE JUST WANTED TO BE HEARD THAT HE NEEDED HELP.  His drug addiction was a cry for help that deep inside he cant utter. So I made it a point that wherever life may take me, no one like him gets left behind. That in this battle they will never be alone. I am here to help. I wont judge. I promise. 💛💚❤️💙💜💗💓

CGA Hayahay Restaurant



I'm the one who goes to a newly opened restaurant not because it is new but because I wanna try what they serve. I don't want no nonsense when it comes to what I eat. If you are like me who wants home cooked meals like how your mama would serve you then this one is for you. Forget the flashy and classy restaurants, if you want to use your hands while eating feel free to do so, they wont mind. 

What I love about this restaurant is the homey vibe they gave me. When I went there, I felt like I was just in our backyard waiting for mom to serve the food minus the washing of the dishes thereafter. The open interior is very perfect for the very humid climate we have here. 

The price? Very affordable. It wont make you cry looking at your wallet.

 
More pictures later.
