Imagine for a second that you are at the symphony. Now, I don’t know what kind of music you like, so it may be playing something familiar and exciting, or it may be playing something soft, haunting and soulful.
Whatever the case may be, be sure that you imagine how the music makes you feel. You are warm and safe in the concert hall with all your friends or by yourself in a dark corner, whichever your preference happens to be, and the music fills the space around you and your head buzzes with the way it makes you feel inside. Bright colors from the stage shine in the distance and, up close, the soft velvet chairs enfolds you in luxurious splendor.
Then, you go home with the music still in your head, you walk into your home, and someone has turned the television onto a really skanky, trashy pop media show. This is something that even you, in all of your worldliness, find to be very distasteful, and you try to block it out of your mind. But, the trashy show still continues and drowns out the dulcet sounds of the symphony.
The same thing applies when you take care of your body really well and when you abuse drugs or alcohol to try to forget something or soothe yourself. Before, your body had plenty of good healthy sleep, lots of delicious meats, seafood, fruits, vegetables, and water. Before, your soul was satisfied when you stood outside in the gathering sunlight of morning.
Now, you are abusing drugs or alcohol, and your body is starved of sleep while you spend your resting hours out on the town or at home self medicating. Since your body naturally repels nutrition when in a drunken or high state, you stop eating all of that healthy delicious food that made you feel so good. No more high quality meat, no more fruit, and no more water. All of these have been replaced with chips, rum, and frozen lasagnas ready to be microwaved.
Workplace drug testing determines which of your employees are following company policy and which are doing things to their bodies which none of us really wants to think about. Workplace alcohol testing laws exist in certain industries to protect high hazard workers at their jobs, but drug & alcohol testing can be obtained from Mediscreen by any company in Australia for any reason whatsoever.
