Celebrity Addiction

Amy Winehouse's death provoked much speculation about her drug and alcohol use, the cause of her death, and her hit song "Rehab." But regardless of what actually happened to Amy and other celebrities whose personal pain is so often covered in the media, the stories do offer you a starting point for talking with your teenager about drugs and alcohol. For instance, you could ask your daughter if she knows about Lindsey Lohan's court appearances. What does she think of the drug-using behavior? Are celebrities protected from the consequences of their actions? Does an artist need to use consciousness-changing substances? Your first instinct may be to turn off the news reports about celebrities and their public struggles with addiction. Don't! Use the situation to talk to your teenager!

  1. Mothers are usually suggested by healthcare practitioners to avoid intake of drugs during pregnancy as a result of of attainable teratogenic effect or the development of congenital anomalies in the fetus. After delivery, mothers are suggested to avoid intake of medicines while lactating. This is as a result of sure medications might cross the breast milk and act similar on the baby because it acts on the person who wants the drug.
