Ronnie Scrimo Wed 7PM; SPC1017 Entertainment Outline November 10, 2010 “Are Addictions so bad?” ATTENTION GETTER: Its not Heroin or Cocaine that makes a person an addict, it’s the need to escape from a harsh reality. We are surrounded by all types of addictions. AUDIENCE MOTIVATION: Are you an addict? Or someone you may know an addict? I can answer that shortly, but first let me tell you a little about my struggle with addiction. CREDIBILITY: I was raised in a middle class home. I went to private school. I was very advanced academically. Then, at the age of 13 I tried alcohol for the first time. How little did I know at that time; it was the beginning of a 12 year career in one hardship to the next. PURPOSE: Regardless of what it is someone is addicted to, I want you to leave here tonight knowing addictions come in many forms, and being an addict is not necessarily a bad thing. PREVIEW: I am going to discuss what makes an addict, an addict. Then, I will share types of addictions, and how you can help an addict.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
