New coronavirus infection and addiction

Various activities have been affected to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection. Self-help groups, which have supported the recovery of addictive parties and their families, have also been affected by the inability to hold them in various places and the scale being reduced.

Be careful in your daily life

WHO and the Japan Alcohol Additional Medical Association have stated that these people should be aware of their daily lives as follows.

  • Make more time for cooking and reading, and spend more time doing other activities that you can enjoy and relax. Don't forget to live a regular life, such as exercising in the garden or veranda within a reasonable range, getting a good sleep, and having a well-balanced meal and sufficient hydration.
  • In the current situation, you may have more time to interact with the Internet and games than usual. Make sure you don't have much time to watch the screen, and make sure you have enough time to stop and perform activities other than games.
  • If you spend more time at home or continue to be uneasy, you may have more drinking than usual, and if you stop drinking, the risk of re-drinking may increase. If you have more time to drink than before, try to live a regular life and think about drinking. If you have stopped drinking but have not stopped drinking again, or if you are worried about increased drinking, please consult a consultation desk or medical institution in Yokohama.
  • In the absence of medical advice, taking too much prescription medicine given by the previous doctor at your own discretion or taking too much internal medicine can be a major health risk and lead to the development of drug addiction. There is. If you are undergoing treatment, do not suspend treatment and consult a specialist such as a family doctor.
  • While many recreational facilities are closed, people with gambling and other problems may be overly immersed in online gambling. Let's talk about habits such as gambling positively without holding alone.

Don't worry about dependence alone, let's connect with someone.

  • It is said that if you are suffering from addiction such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, games, etc., it is difficult to consult in such a situation and it is easy to be isolated. If you are participating in a self-help group, contact your sponsor or members of the same group so that you can not connect with others.
  • It is not necessary to forcibly refrain from going to a medical institution, but consult with a family doctor teacher to determine the frequency of going to the hospital. When going to the hospital, take preventive measures such as masks, hand washing, and avoiding crowds. Talking with trusted people and making an outlook can lead to a sense of security and hope.
