    Default Poll on substance abuse problems and mental health

    Ok so with @Qre:us's permission i'm doing a poll to see how many people have a substance abuse problem, how many have a mental illness, how many have both, and how many have none. http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...=1#post2269368

    It's set to private so feel free to just vote or post about it, either one

    and for the mental illness part, it has to be diagonosed by a professional

    EDIT: I didn't add habitually so vote for the recreational one, and I'll know it can be either one, sorry to be an asshole about it
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I said I have neither only because I am not aware of any mental health problems I possess, which doesn't mean I don't have any.

    Substances....not as far as I know unless asthma inhalers count?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    haha yeah, i don't think prescribed medicine that helps you breathe count. I doubt you have a mental illness, perhaps low self esteem, last I checked that doesn't count.

    There are many shades of grey between recreational users, and one with a substance abuse problem.

    The choices don't reflect that.

    Habitual users for one. Like the guy who has a beer (or other alcoholic beverage) after getting off work everyday.
