soma arts The DSM-IV-TR, it of formal psychiatric diagnoses, categorizes trichotillomania just as one impulse control disorder. That would help it become akin to pathological nail-biting, fire-setting, stealing, gambling, skin-picking, and explosive behavior. But some would categorize trich as a possible anxiety, much like obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Others believe trich is a tic disorder, even a dependency. It?s interesting that trichotillomania continues to be acknowledged as a ?disorder? for only about twenty years. Although the the church and worship are no longer 2000 years old, we are able to only trace Gospel music on the 1700s. Gospel Song Lyrics have become repetitive. Many believe this arises from the slave occasions when blacks were not able to to learn, this allowed them also to get acquainted with the worship. The worship services also played a large role in reinforcing the slavery indoctrination, because sermons were often extracted from St. Paul which brought up: good servants, loving, obeying and trusting one?s master. The hymns in the white master took over as backdrop for the music of the enslaved Africans which later they used in worship meetings. The combining of the two addictions is because of alcohol and nicotine's differing affects on our nervous system. Alcohol, probably the best anti-anxiety medication ever discovered, is a depressant. Nicotine, it turns out, is a really good antidepressant. Eureka! We can ease our anxieties with alcohol and cancel out the depression with nicotine! And that's exactly what many drinkers do. Practiced users can meter their moods with pinpoint accuracy since they alternate sips and smokes throughout the afternoon and evening.
