If you spend all of your time drinking, then you don’t have a lot of time to actually spend living. Yes, we are temporarily moving away from the subject of low emotional intelligence and talking about productive use of time. If you spend your time doing things which you then have to hide, you acquire an aptitude for covering them up afterward, or repressing them within yourself.
There is a reason why people condemn more than simply “bearing false witness.” We condemn lying, because lying to other people is one thing, but lying to ourselves is another problem entirely. When you repress something, you are lying to yourself or subverting the truth to yourself (some people consider those two to be the same thing), and this leads to internal strain, pressure, heartache and, if not dealt with on time, actual physical manifestation of your pain.
Repression is a way to slowly, but surely, kill your spirit, kill your soul, and kill your inner drive and primal wildness. And alcohol has a great deal to do with repression. Occasionally, you will find a drunk who is happy admitting they are a drunk, both when they are sober and when they are intoxicated. But almost all of the time, you will encounter people who seek to cover up either their alcoholism or other things which originate from their drinking behavior.
When an employee brings this behavior to the workplace, they are tainting the working environment with their sick mindset. When they abuse alcohol on the jobsite itself, they are staining the workplace and the people therein with the danger and the lack of responsibility with which they have surrounded themselves.
In the workplace environment, it is really important to know if this is going on. You must determine if any of your workers are bringing their alcoholic disease with them to work, if they have such a problem. CMM Technology can help you out with this. Our products include high quality alcohol breathalyser devices and drug test kits like our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6 kit. We even have breathalyser recalibration which is NATA accredited.
Don’t let total repression burst forth in your business, because someone was keeping themselves in an unnatural state, both emotionally and physically. Make sure you are aware of any substance abuse occurring in your worksite. Call CMM Technology today for this: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
