How to Encourage Someone to Seek Help for Drug Addiction

Do you have a friend or family member who has a drug problem? Drug addiction affects not just the addicted person, but it can often have a negative impact on the lives of others around them. It can be extremely difficult to watch someone you care about deteriorate physically and emotionally. If their addiction has caused them to commit drug offences, they may also have legal problems to deal with, too.

There are a number of signs and symptoms that can indicate that someone you know is using or dependent on prohibited drugs. If you believe a loved one has a drug problem, it can be hard to know what to do, and how to handle the situation. You might feel helpless and concerned about saying the wrong thing, but it is important to speak to them about your concerns, and encourage them to seek help. Having support from those around them can make a big difference to a drug addict’s chance of recovering. It is important that you don’t blame yourself or feel guilty for your friend or family member’s addiction, and remember that although you can offer support and encouragement, you can’t force someone to get help.

How to talk to someone about their drug problem

You need to be cautious when speaking to someone about their drug problem as putting them on the defensive can mean alienating them and having them withdraw further from you. Here are a few suggestions to help you approach the subject in the most positive way possible:

  • Choose a time when you are both calm and the person you are talking to isn’t intoxicated.
  • Avoid lecturing the other person. Instead, present your concerns in a non-judgemental and supportive way.
  • Prepare examples of the other person’s behaviour to demonstrate why you are concerned, as they may try to deny there is a problem.
  • Remember that you can’t force someone to seek help if they are in denial, or if they aren’t ready to address their problem.

Many addicts react with anger and denial when confronted with evidence of their problem, and it is important that you are prepared for this and don’t blame yourself if your efforts to support the other person are rejected.

Drug use and legal issues

If you suspect someone you know may have a drug problem, it is important that you don’t ignore the situation. The longer someone is dependent on drugs, the harder it can be to treat their addiction. Long-term drug use often leads to criminal activity, which can have serious consequences, and impact on their life in a number of ways.

Drug offences come with hefty penalties in many cases, depending on the type and seriousness of the offence.

Penalties can range from intensive correction orders, to prison. A criminal conviction and serving time in jail can impair the ability of your loved one to find employment in the future, or to travel to countries that require a clean criminal record in order to issue an entry visa.

What are the treatment options?

There is a wide range of different drug treatment options available, including counselling, rehabilitation programs, detoxification programs and natural therapies. Not all treatments will suit every person, so it is important that your loved one finds the right treatment for them.

Although speaking to someone about their drug problems can be a daunting prospect, if you are able to encourage them to seek help, you will be able to have a hugely positive impact on their health and future.

Why Is the Blood Alcohol Limit Zero for Provisional Licence Holders?

Drink driving charges are classed in a number of different ranges, from low to high range, and include a few special provisions. One of these special provisions is novice range drink driving, which is a specific charge aimed at deterring learner drivers and provisional licence holders from consuming any alcohol at all before getting behind the wheel. Experienced drink driving lawyers can help novice range drink drivers avoid conviction in some cases, but otherwise, novice range drink driving comes with a maximum fine of $1,100 for a first offence, and a minimum disqualification period of three months.

The prescribed limit for learner and provisional drivers is zero, which means that if you are a learner driver and you are caught driving with any alcohol at all in your system, you are liable for a fine and disqualification. Although the zero alcohol limit might seem excessive, there are a number of reasons why it has been put in place.

Driving is a skill that requires attention and co-ordination. To drive safely, you need to be able to focus on a number of different things at once, make quick decisions, and assess potential hazards accurately. When you are learning, or if you are a provisional driver without much experience, it can be more difficult to make the necessary decisions and multitask to a high enough level with even a small amount of alcohol in your system.

Alcohol affects your driving ability in a number of different ways, including impairment of vision, co-ordination, ability to assess situations, and spatial awareness. If you hold a learner or provisional licence, and you are going to be driving, it’s important to be extremely careful when it comes to consuming alcohol, and avoid the temptation to have even one drink.

Learner and provisional drivers also often get caught the day after drinking. If you have had a few drinks the night before, you might still have a small amount of alcohol in your system in the morning, and this can show up on a police breath test if you are pulled over.

It is easy to assume that you are fine to drive and all the alcohol has left your system, but it takes roughly an hour for each standard drink to clear your bloodstream. Sleeping doesn’t speed the process up, nor does drinking coffee or taking a shower. In addition to the possibility of still having alcohol in your system, driving with a hangover can impair your driving ability, and cause drowsiness, which can also lead to accidents.

As a learner or provisional driver, it is important to take the alcohol limits seriously. Even if you are careful, mistakes can happen and a lapse can lead to disqualification from driving and fines. You hopefully have a long future of driving ahead of you, and a criminal conviction for a driving offence can lead to challenges and limitations in years to come.

In the event that you do end up facing a charge of novice range drink driving, make sure you seek advice from experienced drink driving lawyers. A good lawyer can help you get the best outcome in your case, whether that is avoiding the maximum penalties for the charge, or even obtaining a finding of guilt, without a conviction being recorded.

The Benefits of Boxing Training

Boxing used to be the sole domain of rugged and sometimes less than salubrious types. Things have certainly changed. Developed as a fitness activity using boxing techniques (but without the physical contact), boxing training is a very popular activity that attracts both men and women, and those from all levels of fitness and skill. There are plenty of reasons why boxing fitness has been growing in popularity over the last decade. The following are just a few.

No expertise required

Boxing training is about technique first and foremost, with brute strength not a prerequisite. That’s great news for those of us who are less than burly, and it’s also why it’s been attracting huge hordes of female followers in recent years (not to say there aren’t plenty of women who are very strong!). What’s more, it can be tailored to suit all skill levels, so as you develop more skills, your training can be adapted to remain fun and challenging. Classes can cater to everyone from absolute novices, to Olympic champions.

It’s a great workout

Boxing fitness is arguably one of the best workouts around. It burns calories, develops and tones muscles, increases agility, and builds stamina. It’s the ideal combination of cardiovascular and muscle training. In short, it’s a great workout that can help you increase overall fitness, lose weight and build strength, which is important for everyone. If you’re looking for a solid routine that will see significant results, it’s a great choice.

Safety first

Some people may be put off with the idea that boxing training can lead to injury. The good news is that it’s about building techniques and improving fitness, without any body-to-body contact. In general, you will be partnered with a fellow class member. One of you will ‘spar’ or push a combination of tailored punches at the other, which are blocked by padded gloves or mats. It’s been designed to ensure it’s very safe, and there’s generally no more chance of injury with boxing fitness than there is with any other type of fitness training.

A confidence booster

While this type of training is not specifically a self-defence class, it will teach you how to throw a punch. While we’re not advocating trying boxing of any sort outside of the fitness class anytime soon, it’s perhaps one reason why many people find boxing training is a good confidence booster too.

It’s fun

Boxing fitness is not, as some may perceive, a solely serious workout. It’s also a lot of fun. Enjoying your workout is one of the best ways to achieve success. It’s incredibly difficult to maintain focus and motivation if you’re not doing something you love. That’s why the best fitness activities for any individual are those that you enjoy.

It’s officially good for you

The Australian government’s guidelines for health and fitness recommend at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity daily, and some regular vigorous activity for extra health and fitness. It’s often this extra high-intensity activity that people find hard to fit into their hectic schedules. Boxing training is a great option if you’re looking for an activity that will have results, and is enjoyable. It’s also a fantastic way to relieve stress after a busy or hectic day at work!

Signs your Teenager Might be Getting Involved with Drugs

Any parent of teenagers or young adults worries about drugs at one time or another. With so much media coverage of young people and the issue of drug use, it can be difficult to know what is hype and what is a serious problem. Teenagers are notoriously secretive and uncommunicative, and it can be hard for parents to decipher whether their child is engaging in illegal or dangerous behaviour, or just being a normal moody adolescent. Here are some signs that your teenager might be involved with drugs, and what you can do to help them.

  1. Mood swings and irrational behaviour. Although mood swings are common in teenagers, if you notice a sudden increase in moody behaviour it might be due to something more than just raging hormones.
  2. Changes in appearance. If your child suddenly seems to have less interest in their appearance, and have let their personal hygiene standards slip, this can be a sign they are taking drugs. There are certain physical characteristics that sometimes go with drug and alcohol consumption, including dramatic weight loss or gain, and sores or spots on the skin, particularly around the mouth.
  3. Declining performance at school or work. If your child’s grades have suddenly dropped, or they are experiencing behavioural issues at school, it can be a sign of a wider problem. This can go along with loss of interest in extra-curricular activities and friends.
  4. Changes in personal habits. This can include sudden secretive behaviour, staying out late when they didn’t before, reckless driving and unexplained bumps and bruises. Developing a sudden taste for breath mints might mean they are trying to cover up the smell of smoke or alcohol on their breath, and the use of incense or air fresheners in their bedroom can mean they are trying to hide other smells.
  5. Sudden changes in friends. If your teenager has suddenly developed an entirely new circle of friends and lost interest in the people they used to spend time with, it is possible that drugs are involved.

These signs don’t necessarily mean that your child is using drugs, so it is important not to panic if you have noticed one of the above behaviours. There might be another reason, but it is worth opening up a discussion with your teenager to find out what is going on. Keeping an open line of communication, and letting your child know that they can talk to you, are some of the best ways to help prevent your child getting involved in problematic behaviours.

If you know or suspect that your child is involved with drugs, talking to them about the health and lifestyle risks of drug use might help.

A visit to your local GP can give you some ideas of local support groups or counselling programs in your area, which might be suitable for your teenager.

If your child has already been involved with the police, or they have been charged with a drug-related offence, you will need to obtain legal advice. Experienced drug lawyers might be able to help your teenager avoid a criminal conviction. A conviction and a criminal record can have long-term consequences for them in the future, including impacting on their employment prospects, and hindering their ability to obtain certain visas, and travel.

Tips on growing your business – from marketing to magnetic name badges

Establishing any business is of course a big deal, but getting past that first hurdle is just the beginning. If you’re looking to grow your business, you’ll need to do your research, make some plans, and follow through with them. Here are just a few points to keep in mind when growing your business.

Create (and recreate) a business plan

Every business owner needs to create and implement a business plan. This should outline what you want to achieve with your business, what services and/or products you will offer, it should set realistic goals, and outline how you hope to achieve your goals. If you‘re unsure just how to write a business plan, you should look for professional resources to guide you. The Australian Government’s business.gov.au website is worth visiting, providing varied information and tips on establishing and developing businesses of all sizes. Another tip? As your business grows, your business plan should also adapt. Make a point to assess and modify your business plan regularly.

Establish a marketing plan

Marketing and social media strategies are vital for any business, regardless of your budget. Your business is going to have a hard time growing if people don’t know who you are, or how to find you. A marketing plan might entail using a combination of advertising, listings, a website, and social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to help spread information about your company and services. Social media is an increasingly popular and highly effective tool that can be used both to attract new customers and help keep your customers coming back. Even better, it can be very cost-effective.

Give time to staff relations

The Queensland Government’s Business and Industry portal has some useful tips on managing staff. Essentially, staff that feel informed, appreciated and part of a team are more likely to give you their all. There are some simple ways to help staff work together as best they can. Keep staff informed via meetings or regular email bulletins or newsletters, implement team-building exercises and training programs, consider mentoring opportunities, and even try something like magnetic name badges, which are not only great for customer-staff relations, they can also help staff feel part of the team. Any business owner should also of course be aware of employer and employee legal rights and obligations.

Focus on customer relationships

Building good customer relationships is vital for business growth. Making a sale (whether it’s a product or service) is just the beginning. Being able to provide fantastic customer service every step of the way – from an initial inquiry following through to the completed transaction – is part and parcel of good customer service. Follow through means everything from providing information and returning calls promptly, to answering queries satisfactorily.

Many businesses that deal with customers face-to-face find something as simple as magnetic name badges are a great first step in setting up a relationship with a customer. Magnetic name badges can break down that initial barrier, and help your staff to create an instant rapport with customers. They are also easy to design, and being magnetic, are simple for staff to wear comfortably.

And how else can you keep customers coming back? Mailing lists and social media accounts can be highly effective in helping to keep customers informed of new products, sales and special offers.

Of course, seeking professional assistance if you aren’t an expert on every aspect of business (and who is) is always recommended. Look to government business sites such as NSW Business, and professionals in any areas you aren’t an expert in, such as accountants, consultants and the like, for help.

What happens if I get caught driving without a licence?

There are a number of reasons why you might be caught driving without a licence. Your licence might have expired. If you have had your licence suspended or cancelled, or you have never held a licence, there can be more serious consequences if you are caught behind the wheel. If you have been accused of an unlicensed driving offence, it is important to speak to a lawyer. Experienced traffic lawyers Sydney wide can help you understand the charges you are facing, and make sure that you get the best possible outcome.

It is against the law in NSW to drive a vehicle without carrying a current driving licence. If you have been suspended, disqualified or have never had a licence, it is illegal for you to drive at all. Driving without a licence can incur more severe penalties if you have been suspended or disqualified, than if you have never had a licence.

  • If you have never held a driving licence, or haven’t held one in the previous five years, you can face a fine of $2,200. If you are caught again in a second or subsequent offence, you can be looking at up to $3,300, and a maximum prison term of 18 months.
  • If you have held a NSW driving licence in the previous two years, and you are driving illegally because you have failed to renew your licence and it has expired, you can expect a fine of $496 for a first offence, and $762 for a second or subsequent offence. If your licence expired more than two years ago, the fine is $596 for a first offence, and $1,191 for a second or subsequent offence.

If you have been disqualified, suspended or had your licence cancelled for any reason, and you are caught driving, there are more severe consequences. Disqualification from driving happens when you have been prohibited in court from holding a driving licence, while the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), can impose a suspension, commonly as a result of having too many demerit points on your driving licence. Here is some more information on the different terms. The penalties for driving while disqualified or suspended are:

  • For a first offence, a minimum disqualification of 12 months, a maximum fine of $3,300, and maximum term of imprisonment of 18 months.
  • For a subsequent offence (within five years), you will be facing a minimum disqualification of two years, and a maximum fine of $5,500 with maximum imprisonment of two years.

Are you facing charges for driving without a licence? If so, try not to panic – there are mitigating circumstances in some cases, which might be able to help you avoid the worst case scenario for many of these charges.

Many people rely on driving for their employment and day to day life, so if you can reduce the severity of your charges, it can have a significant impact on your life and get you back on the road sooner rather than later.

If you have been charged with driving without a licence in NSW, it is essential that you seek advice from one or more experienced traffic lawyers Sydney wide. Drivers who are facing traffic charges of any kind need the highest quality legal advice from professionals who understand NSW traffic law and the legal system.

Professional event planning: Why details matter

Whether your business is looking to host a dinner, seminar, conference or other event, it’s essential to do it well. An event is not only about sharing information and experiences; it’s an excellent marketing tool. A well-organised event will reflect well on your business, and has the potential to build and enhance business relationships. While venue and catering are important considerations, they are certainly not the only ones. Giving short shrift to invitations, promotional material and even name badges and lanyards, will reflect when it comes to the actual event.

Where to start

If you are new to event planning, the best advice is to do your research and be methodical. Create a checklist of everything that needs doing, give everything a time frame and completion date, and be sure to include even the most minor of details. Always determine a budget, and be sure to stick to it at all stages of the planning.

Help please?

There are plenty of online resources that can help take the hard work out of organising your event. The Brisbane Meeting Planners’ Guide 2011-13 for instance, is a free download full of ideas, information and tips for event organisers, no matter the location. Search for a convention bureau in your area, and there’s a good chance they’ll also have information, advice and publications on hand. The Melbourne Convention Bureau and Business Events Sydney are other examples.

Bigger is not always better

Don’t be daunted if your event is quite small. While organising a low-key seminar and international conference may seem like chalk and cheese, there are elements that overlap. In essence, it’s about finding the right ‘content’ and presenting it in the best available venue, and using the event to help your business shine.

You may not have the budget for instance to present your seminar in a five star hotel, but there are plenty of interesting, and even quirky venues available to rent for affordable prices. Remember too that the venue is just one aspect of any successful event.

Detail, detail, detail

Many successful conferences and seminars have been successful not because of where they were held, or the food that was served, but because of the engaging speakers, quality materials provided, and positive interaction that was had with the host company and other attendees. Hosting an event is an incredible opportunity to market your organisation and build engagement with your business.

One of the key ways to market your business, and engage attendees, is with name badges. Name badges can facilitate networking, and can be branded with your business colour scheme or logo.

If you don’t have a huge budget, it just means you need to start thinking creatively. Want to provide a show bag for attendees? Then perhaps look for local business sponsors who will provide free contents in exchange for logo placement on the official publications and/or banners.

Looking to get your business name out there? Then include it on all materials. Even the lanyards (www.signaladvantage.com/badge-lanyards.html) that hold the name badges can be imprinted with your company name or logo.

Make sure all employees who are working at the event are also wearing name badges. They are easy to put together with a lanyard, and ensure that attendees find it easy to locate staff members if they need help, or have questions. Branded name badges also have the added effect of marketing your business, and showing off how well you do customer service.

How can video conferencing and telecommuting help my business?

Many businesses are feeling the effects of difficult economic times and rising costs. There is also a shortage of skilled workers in many professions, which means that a lot of companies are trying to find ways to attract and retain valuable employees. Whether your business is large or small, there are a number of ways that employing remote technology such as telecommuting and video conferencing can help.

Reducing travel time and costs

Do you or your employees spend a lot of time communicating with clients, staff or customers outside the office? Travelling to meet customers and clients can be expensive and disruptive. Video conferencing makes it easier to connect with clients and colleagues around the world, and means less time spent out of the office travelling. Allowing employees to telecommute from home can also help them reduce their travel costs, and commuting time.

Environmental benefits

Reducing driving and long haul travel also comes with environmental considerations. By implementing an effective video conferencing system, you may be able to reduce your business costs as well as making a positive contribution to the environment. Allowing employees to telecommute can also help reduce your business’ consumption of electricity and other resources.

Improving staff morale

Offering opportunities for employees to enjoy a greater work life balance with flexible working conditions, and the ability to work from home, can be a great way to attract skilled employees and help maintain staff loyalty and morale. With a shortage of skilled workers in many professions, many companies now have to compete for a limited pool of talented employees. Offering telecommuting can give your business the edge when it comes to attracting and keeping the right staff.

Telecommuting can help increase employee satisfaction, reduce stress and even increase productivity and motivation in employees. This can benefit employers in terms of reduced staff turnover, fewer hiring costs, and more productive employees.

Keeping in closer contact with clients or customers

If you have clients who are located a significant distance away, it can be difficult to keep in touch. Video conferencing allows you the opportunity to build relationships with your clients face to face, without having to travel to meetings. This can benefit your business in terms of improved client relationships and hopefully more business. Customer issues can also be more readily resolved face to face through video conferencing and chat.

Reduced need for physical workspace

With less of a requirement for employees to be physically present in your office, you may be able to reduce space and save substantial costs. The use of other resources such as office supplies and electricity may also be reduced, allowing you to further cut costs.

Telecommuting and video conferencing can be a great boost to many different areas of your business, as long as it is implemented effectively. If done without careful consideration, telecommuting can cause issues and increased stress for employees. Make sure your employees have access to the technology they need, and that your telecommuting systems and policies are well thought out, and you can hopefully enjoy the many benefits that video conferencing and telecommuting can bring to your employees and your business.

What is stalking?

Stalking has only recently been recognised as a criminal offence, and the term is one that is often surrounded by confusion. Many people are unsure exactly what activities constitute stalking from a criminal perspective, and what the penalties are. You can be charged with stalking as a stand-alone charge, or in conjunction with another offence such as harassment or intimidation.

From a legal perspective, stalking is “the following of a person about or the watching or frequenting of the vicinity of or an approach to a person’s place of residence, business or work or any place that a person frequents for the purposes of any social or leisure activity.” Stalking activities can lead to an apprehended violence order (AVO) if the victim has reason to fear physical or mental harm, and carry up to a five-year prison sentence if convicted. Stalking is generally accepted to be a way for one person to attempt to control another, or gain attention through repeated unwanted activities.

If you have been accused of stalking, or are in receipt of an AVO, it is a good idea to speak to a criminal lawyer. Sydney has a large number of experienced legal professionals who can help you defend yourself such as Sydney Criminal Lawyers, who are based in the heart of the city.

According to the NSW Police website some of the activities which can be defined as ‘stalking’ include:

  • Repeated telephone calls
  • Repeated text messaging
  • Repeatedly leaving messages on social media sites
  • Following another person
  • Leaving notes or flowers
  • Watching or staring at another person repeatedly

In some cases stalking can also be defined as:

  • Interfering with someone’s property repeatedly
  • Accosting someone in a public place
  • Giving offensive material to the victim
  • Hindering someone from carrying out their lawful occupation, trade or business

Stalking behaviour can be extremely intimidating to victims, which is why stalking charges are often associated with intimidation. Being stalked can make victims feel powerless, out of control and threatened, and can cause emotional distress and psychological damage.

What is the difference between stalking and harassment?

There is often a fine line between stalking and harassment. Harassment covers a number of different situations and contexts including sexual harassment, workplace harassment and discrimination, whereas stalking is very specific and relates to certain activities and behaviours. Harassment is defined by the NSW Law society as “any form of behaviour that you do not want; offends, humiliates or intimidates you; and creates a hostile environment.” Harassment can carry more severe penalties than stalking, depending on the severity of the case and the consequences for the victim.

What can I do if I am accused of stalking?

If you have been accused of stalking and served with an apprehended violence order (AVO), you can choose to defend yourself in court.

For a person to be convicted of stalking, it needs to be proven that they intended to cause the victim to fear physical or mental harm. This can be difficult to establish as in some cases it is may be possible that the person accused of stalking was not doing it with the intention of causing fear to the other person.

If you have been accused of stalking, or any other offence such as assault, you need to find experienced legal help to advise you on your best defence. Criminal lawyers Sydney wide are well equipped to discuss your situation, and provide legal assistance.
