To most of us it is known that Australia is a land of the white people since start and it has been there for centuries like this. In reality the white people are not the first one to have lived on this smallest continent of the world. The first people to come and settle in the Australia were the aborigines. These were the people who came from the different islands near Australia and settled down here. In simple English aborigines is meant “first or earliest known indigenous”.

They are often called black by the non indigenous Australians. This is more like the racial remarks and it is not regarded as a very good sentence to be used for them they have been equally participating in every course of life in Australia. They are given the same education as the non-indigenous Australians and they are also hired on for the government jobs. Many of the aborigines still live in the remote areas of Australia. This is due to their association with the earlier settlements of their ancestors. There is a trend among the aborigines that most of them leave the schools at early age and start looking for a job to earn their bread and butter. Their government and different organizations are working on improving these facts and trying to make education look more important to the aborigines. They are not only present among the student or the other normal lay mans. They are also present in the armed forces of Australia.

They have a great contribution towards the sport. Many of them are the famous players in sports. Sport is the most popular thing to any person in Australia. Australia is known for the love of sports. No matter which ever sport it is, the Australians are always looking forward to perform the best in it.

Afl football

AFL stands for Australian football league, which was previously known as Victorian football league. Just like every other countries of the World, this is the national football league which is played all over Australia. It is the game which always has a very high number of attendances.
AFL basically grew out from Victorian domestic championship and since past twenty five years it has grown in to a national championship, which involves teams from five states of Australia.
Victoria as it emerged as the founder of this championship has some where around ten teams, out of total sixteen teams which take part in championship. AFL has gained a considerably large amount of media coverage and financial strength, due to its popularity in the country.

The clubs which take part in AFL are nine, since 1997, most of the football leagues played in the world work on the concept of relegation and promotion, after the end of the season depending upon the position of the team. But in AFL there is no concept of relegation or promotion.

The VFL which was known as Victoria foot ball league has a history which rolls back till 1897; it was started with eight teams. A further national expansion took place in the history of AFL in 1987 with the introduction of West coast eagles from Western Australia and the Brisbane Bears from Queensland.

As this game is the most dominant in light of media and finance, it has become the most popular sport in the country. The AFL premiership season is contested between sixteen teams, around Australia; it lasts for twenty two rounds, and begins in late March. At the end of the twenty two rounds the top eight teams compete for, four-week AFL final series. Teams play in two qualifying finals and two elimination finals, these games are played on the basis of the ladder position of the teams. The two lowest placed loosing teams are eliminated, and the two highest placed winning teams progress into preliminary final which normally starts in third week, and the other two teams play in the semi finals, in second week. The losers of the semi finals are eliminated and the remaining four teams play in two preliminary finals, with the winning teams play in grand final.

The McClelland Trophy is awarded to the team that finishes the league at the top position, known as minor premiership, but this is not afforded anywhere near the prestige as the premiership. It is awarded to the wining team in grand final.

Alcohol addiction help

Help for alcohol addiction is widely available. While there is no single “right” path, there are multiple forms of help available. As with many things in life, there is no “one” singular form of help for everyone who suffers with an alcohol addiction. Although, through careful research, and perhaps several attempts, alcohol addiction recovery can be achieved.

In a traditional sense, help for an alcohol addiction has come from 3 primary categories: Psychological, physiological, and social. The varying treatments available under these groupings are where majority of traditionally available help for alcohol addiction treatment.

Physically speaking, the top item of priority for alcohol addiction treatment is always going to be a safe withdrawal from the alcohol addiction. Even with initial help for alcohol addiction, there can remain chronic physical issues, such as sexually transmitted diseases, nutritional diseases and disorders, and liver diseases. When recovering from an alcohol addiction, an alcohol addict will need to continue receiving help for any possible physiological conditions that have arisen, even after they are fully into the recovery process.

Psychological help for alcohol addiction frequently involves individual and group therapies. Another common form of psychological help for alcohol addiction is inpatient and outpatient care centres. Other psychological forms of help for alcohol addiction include things such as hypnotherapy, and psychotherapy.

Amongst the kinds of help offered by social intervention for alcohol addiction, some basics include the following:

Unavoidable community supervision, such as an employer requiring alcohol addicts to receive mandatory treatment for their addiction.
Substitution intervention which helps by replacing the alcohol addiction with a hobby, such as weight-lifting.

What Jungians term as “protective wall of human community”, which offers help by helping the person form new relationships with groups of persons. Due to the alcohol addiction treatment having a lower success rate when the alcohol addict is around only familiar faces, who may inadvertently help contribute to a relapse of alcohol addiction. Because of that issue, it is sometimes more of a help when the alcohol addict in treatment forges new relationships, sometimes similar to what is found in religious communities.

Help is very often obtained thru strengthening or creating a deeper relationship with a higher power. Many alcohol addiction treatment programs have seen this alone help a great deal. It often lets the addict see it as having a person who will help them and not judge them.

Help for an alcohol addiction is easily obtained. There are plenty of programs that specialize in help for those with an alcohol addiction. Whether via traditional or non-traditional means, help is easily obtained for an alcohol addiction today.

Alcohol addiction beating

The overall goal with treating alcohol addiction, is of course, beating the alcohol addiction. Beating the alcohol addiction, though, is not a simple, nor easy process. It can take years of fighting before a person has beaten the alcohol addiction. There are hundreds of therapeutic options to help in beating an alcohol addiction. Even with all the options available, it can sometimes be difficult to decide where to begin, and much harder to find the right one to assist in beating the alcohol addiction.

Basic treatment of alcohol addiction includes the initial goal of beating the effects of withdrawal caused by ending the alcohol addiction. Withdrawal is perhaps the most difficult part of the process, as it is very physically discomforting, and can be very mentally stressful as well. The biggest key help in beating an alcohol addiction however, is going to be perseverance. If a person is serious about beating their alcohol addiction, they will need patience, self-forgiveness and perseverance.

After beating the initial withdrawal trials and tribulations of alcohol addiction, it goes onto the longer term, treatment phases. In the long term process of alcohol addiction recovery, many facets exist, from treating any secondary health issues that have arisen as a direct result of the alcohol addiction, to possibly beating demons from childhood which were an underlying psychological base for the alcohol addiction in the first place. Frequently group and individual therapy are used as helpful tools during this part of beating the alcohol addiction. Other forms of psychotherapy are used as well, from hypnosis to some forms of role-playing. The purpose of these is to alleviate past issues that may date as far back as early childhood, which aided in the initial start of the alcohol addiction. It has been said that in beating the pain and trauma of your past, you have half the battle of beating alcohol addiction won already. I’d have to adjudge that a large portion of the other half of beating alcohol addiction would lie in going thru the initial withdrawal battle.

Beating alcohol addiction is far from easy, and can be quite painful, sometimes physically, but more often mentally. Having to relieve a severe beating from a parent during an exceedingly abusive childhood, while excruciatingly painful, could very well help bring forth the fact that it was in the past, and being such, should be forgive, and exorcised from your mind. Perhaps someone suffered a death in their past, the pain built up and festers, finally resolving into an alcohol addiction. Only by beating the pain mentally can you fully give up the alcohol addiction, can you be free from needing to assuage the pain.
