Today I came across the annual reports of an organisation for alcohol- and drugabuse.
I thought it to be interesting for the readers of the paper to write something about it. Especially as the regional paper paid some extra attention to it and I thought it deserved a bit more space.
Often one has to request researchpapers, but this time I could download it.
I should have known.
They questioned a few people in the pubs in town and generalised the numbers to the whole population of the region.
Well, what do you expect in a pub?
And the later you come the more they have consumed.
We all know that, don't we?
We all know that in a pub there's a large chance you'll find people with drinking problems.
A pub is the place to look.
Not at the hairdresser, not at the handbagshop.
You'll probably end up generalising that almost no one in the population drinks.
I guess the writers of the paper forgot that.
So I wonder why on earth they wrote that paper in such a way.
It's completely unscientific.
Are they stupid?
Do they think other people are stupid?
Well, it's clear they got a lot of subsidies because they numbers of alcohol- and drugabuse users are growing.
Will be interesting to see if they have to give it back.
Here you'll find impressions of my life as a mother of a few children with autism spectrum disorder and a person with heartfailure, some critical reviews of what going on in the world, including medical issues and political subjects. And everything else that keeps me busy.
I'm very honest about my experiences with autism, because only that way I can show how much of a struggle daily life with autism can be.
