Again My Life (2022) Episode 3
Han Deuk-gu (Hyun Bin) comes to this restaurant with good friend Choi Choong-shik (Jin Tae-hyun) and their trainer in episode 2 of The Snow Queen (눈의 여왕) (KBS2, 2006-07) and his trainer pressures him somewhat in shedding his past, taking up his real name Han Tae-woong again, which Deuk-gu refuses for now.
In the previous broadcast, Kim Hee Woo returned to 15 years in the past and became a college student once again. In particular, Kim Hee Woo met Kim Hee Ah for the first time, signaling a change in his future since Kim Hee Woo had not known Kim Hee Ah in his previous life. Viewers are curious to find out what role Kim Hee Ah will play in helping Kim Hee Woo take down evil.
Yeah, risky is the word too, but also just party environment. There's entertainment, there's alcohol, there's everything too and it's nightlife. So all of these things went against me being well rested. But I had youth on my side, so it was just barreling through and having so much fun, which I think has its own experience.
By the time I got fired, I'd been speaking out against a hospital for two years publicly, and I was being asked to speak. And so after I got fired, I just my life just took a turn into full time speaking and writing.
Does it get harder to lead the team with each loss? "I think that in the game of football, I think that you experience a lot of different things. We've experienced a lot of great things here. The challenging part becomes when you experience a lot of lows, which we obviously have experienced here lately. I think it is difficult for anybody no matter what you are facing whether it is a football game or something very difficult in your life. I think it is very challenging for anybody, particularly when your job is to lead people and so, sure it gets challenging, but that is my job, and I am responsible to lead 18- to 22-year-olds through good times and some bad. So again, it has been very challenging and difficult, and I as the leader will not stop forging ahead leading these young guys to the best of my ability."
waves? Yeah, I mean, I think there's, you know, there's there's a lot that I don't think we've got a clear answer yet as to why it is that there is that change in alcohol use among younger people, is almost certainly going to be a complicated answer that, you know, there's big cultural changes that have happened to me. You know, even when you think about social media and the connections that people make and awareness of health, and so on and so forth. I'd like to think that to some extent, those things have played a positive role in particularly demonise social media and people's use of the Internet and so on. assume it's always a bad thing. But there does, there is an element that is also providing a space to kind of liberate information even think about when I was younger, it'd be really hard to find out any information about you know, alcohol use thinking back to my parents, if they wanted to find out something of the internet wasn't around. So you know, there's business, there's a lot of a positive to that. You know, I know that there are people that have argued that there is a sort of great health awareness, even young people and so on to the other question as to why is the older adults aren't necessarily trying to drink and I guess I'll revert back to what I said before, which is, it's because most people most of the time don't make really significant changes to their, to their behaviour in almost all areas of their life, you know, unless you're making a special effort if you if you might, so you're making a special effort to change your diet by going, you know, joining Weight Watchers or Slimming World or something like that, you know, people, people can make very concerted efforts to change their behaviour. They can often be unsuccessful in that, you know, certainly in the context of dieting, you know, there's lots of evidence around people sort of a yo yo dieting, almost just going from one sort of you attempt to lose weight putting weight back on and so on. And that, again just reflects how difficult it can be to just change that, you know, get get off of that path of least resistance. I think with alcohol is that there is that sort of competing if, if it's if somebody who is if somebody is not experiencing any kind of acute or obvious or salient harm, or they're experiencing acute or salient harms, which to them simply sort of seem almost like within the realms of acceptability, sort of thinking, oh, yeah, I'll do once a week hangover, but I enjoy that night out so much that I kind of wouldn't want to give it up. So, you know, people could be making that, but it could well be making those sorts of judgments, be able to make that concerted effort to change your alcohol use is, is tough, as with any behaviour change, coupled with the fact that it can be socially difficult to do that, because suddenly, people are asking you questions about, you know, why you're not drinking? Is it because you're on antibiotics, you know, have you caught religion, whatever it might be, you know, people will often and people that try to make changes to their drinking very often experience that very often experience that kind of social pressure. We did some work on this a few couple of years ago, looking at peer pressure amongst adults, I mean, it's a fascinating area, because we just associate peer pressure with kids, we think, you know, kids are the only ones that get pressured by their peers. But there's actually some really interesting work out there looking at the role of peer pressure in adult drinking, and this idea that people end up sort of caving into expectations from other people and the difficulties that they have navigating that, you know, whether it's explaining to other people, other people, and maybe taking your views about alcohol use, as a criticism of their own people sort of thinking is the way that I do this just to not socialise with these group of friends anymore. You know, it's a real challenge. And I think it's, it's, and certainly from a research perspective, it's an understudied area. And I think just socially in general, I don't think we kind of talked enough about that. But if you want to change your behaviour, like alcohol use, which is for many, many people, very connected with their social interactions with friends and loved ones, that that actually trying to make changes on your own. In that context, when no one else is trying to make a challenge, there's going to be another explanation as to why it is that you know, why are older adults experiencing more harm and not changing their alcohol use? It's for those sorts of reasons.
Yeah, I mean, it's, I mean, the brain disease model, specifically, I think, is a is a reflection in certain certain parts of the scientific community, particularly in certain countries, United States, in particular, this tendency to want to medicalize all problems and kind of say, you know, is there is there some ultimate explanation as to why it is that some people can get with you, whether it's with alcohol or other drugs or gambling, they can get to a position where it appears, may feel to them, and it may appear to other people, that they've almost completely lost control over what they're doing, they're unable to stop, they're able to sort of give it up, or to change their behaviour. And the problem with that is it's just too simplistic and explanation. I mean, there's a whole big debate and the listeners could of course, buy a book and have a good read of it, because fantastic chapters for and against the brain disease model. But I think that the way that sort of sum it up is that, of course, the brain plays a role in our behaviour. It's not that the brand does not play a role in our behaviour. And absolutely, if you said there are people for whom, from a very personal, very individual level, seeing their relationship with alcohol, when it has become so extreme, and in some cases really destructive in their lives. Framing that problem as being a problem rooted in this sense of having a disease or thinking that they're in some sense different to other people, and that they can't have the same kind of relationship with alcohol that other people might appear to be able to have. If that helps a person with their journey through recovery or change. That's not something anyone should be kind of contesting. The problem is when it works the other way round, and the scientific community tries to impose that view and say this is this is something that everybody should be thinking, because actually the evidence isn't there to support that idea, the other negative consequences certainly from your own research in this area. The other negative consequence of thinking in that way is it goes back to this kind of biological determinism almost, but the consequence of that is it makes everything very binary and it means that people then have to think well, am I a problem drinker or not? And what I kind of began with was Talking about a kind of universe of different harms. And that sort of spectrum of harms that people can experience. The idea that there is this group of people in society who are the problem drinkers, and then everybody else is really unhelpful. It certainly plays into an industry narrative, this idea that the majority of people can use alcohol and experience no harm from it at all, it's all fine. And it's all good, fun, don't need to worry about it. And then we've got this really small proportion of people that we should worry about, because they're the problem drinkers, that that completely misrepresents the way that people should understand our relationship with it. And we also to a large extent, as well, for people that are kind of on on the margins of having periods in their lives where they're drinking more heavily than others, it sort of ignores this nuance, actually, people's relationship with alcohol can fluctuate from time to time, a good example of that would be people who have a strong motivation around drinking to cope. So if you're a sort of person who associate alcohol with dealing with stressful situations, and to be clear, not everybody does, there are people who do associate alcohol use, having a good time and having fun, and those people will tend to drink more heavily if they're at a party or down the pub or something in the company of friends. But there are people who associate alcohol with dealing with negative emotion, some people might, you might call it kind of self medication. And the problem for people who that that is a very strong motivator for their use of alcohol is, of course, what happens if they go through a period in their lives where they're under a huge amount of stress. If you've got that motivation, if you strongly associate alcohol with when I'm feeling anxious, if I'm feeling stressed, if I'm feeling low mood or that effect, then I find that alcohol helps or I think that alcohol helps, then, of course, if you go through a period in your life, where things are impacting on you that you can't do anything about, then you're naturally going to see your alcohol use increased. And so you can develop more problems in that kind of acute phase, if you like, where you're drinking more and more heavily. The alcohol, of course, is never going to actually solve any of the problems. They're still there the next day, but the alcohol use it, you know, things will spiral it starts to affect affect your mental health, because you can you will increase anxiety over time, and so on. So, you know, I suppose back to this idea that, you know, is it a brain disease or not? For some individual people, they may find that it's a useful way to frame their own understanding. And absolutely, some people may simply find that they get to a stage where their relationship with alcohol, their experience of using alcohol has become sort of almost traumatic in itself that it's caused. It's caused them such harm, they've got such strong associations and memories associated with their alcohol use that actually, it may well be the best thing for them in the long run to just try to never drink again. And then there'll be happier if they don't. And that's the journey that will best suit them. But I think having that kind of binary distinction, that there are those people that just shouldn't drink again, because they're alcoholics, and then everybody else who doesn't experience harm. It's a real problem. But it's what this brain disease model perpetuates this idea that there is this special group of people who have got a serious problem somehow rooted in the brain. And then everybody else doesn't need to worry. 041b061a72
