Drug use turns into abuse and addiction when the person begins experiencing urges and cravings. At this point, the user´s mind finds a way to rationalize the addiction or deny that they even have a problem. The user begins to lose control over their drug use and may even underestimate the amount of drugs they are taking. While the amount of drugs a person takes does not necessarily indicate a problem, it is often an indicator of drug addiction. Change is never easy. Both addicts and non-addicts struggle to make positive changes in their lives every day. However, when you are dealing with a drug addiction, change suddenly becomes inevitable. Otherwise, the only fate the addict will meet is an early grave. It is never too late to make a change and you can never be too forgone to recover. Yes, there will be setbacks, bumps and maybe even some relapses along the way, but each challenge you face will help you to grow and learn. Deciding to change takes courage and will require a lot of work on your end. It will not be easy, but you will be rewarded with a life that is healthy and more fulfilling. Deciding to recover means that you understand that you will have to make many major life changes. The good news is that recovery is a process, and you can take things one step at a time. From what drug addiction is to various therapies and treatment options and what to expect after completion of treatment, this book will thoroughly discuss and enlighten. After all, a solid base of knowledge can be the first vital step towards freedom from drugs. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Claton Butcher.

Drugs in sport are big news and the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sport is common. Here, Chris Cooper, a top biochemist at the University of Essex, looks at the science behind drugs in sport. Using the performance of top athletes, Cooper begins by outlining the limits of human performance. Showing the basic problems of human biochemistry, physiology, and anatomy, he looks at what stops us running faster, throwing longer, or jumping higher. Using these evidence-based arguments he shows what the body can, and cannot, do. There is much curiosity about why certain substances are used, how they are detected, and whether they truly have an effect on the body. Cooper explains how these drugs work and the challenges of testing for them, putting in to context whether the ´doping´ methods of choice are worth the risk or the effort. Exploring the moral, political, and ethical issues involved in controlling drug use, Cooper addresses questions such as ´What is cheating?´, ´What compounds are legal and why?´, ´Why do the classification systems change all the time?´, and ´Should all chemicals be legal, and what effect would this have on sport?´. Looking forward, he examines the recent work to study the physical limitations of rat and mice behaviour. He shows that, remarkably, simple genetic experiments producing ´supermice´ suggest that there may be ways of improving human performance too, raising ethical and moral questions for the future of sport. 1.
