Alcohol: When Enough is EnoughWritten by David Westbrook
Though there is still some debate about nature of alcoholism, most professionals now understand it to be a chronic and sometimes fatal disease, likely with a genetic component. In definition adopted by National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, alcoholism is characterized by ďimpaired control over dinkingÖand distortions in thinking, most notably denial.Ē What this means for alcoholics is that they are frequently unable to make decision to stop drinking without help from others.
Unfortunately, alcoholics have frequently engaged family member to make excuses and cover up for them. After prolonged and repeated excuse making many family members have a hard time facing up to fact that they have been part of problem. The first step to getting an alcoholic help is for family members to stop making excuses. Calling in sick for a husband or wife who has a hangover, cleaning up after their drunken messes, hiding problem from other family members and dozens of other behaviors are all ways in which well intentioned families just make it worse.
Once, one or more family members have developed an awareness of problem and ceased any enabling behaviors they may have been engaged in itís time to intervene. An opportune time to talk to a person about their disease may come shortly after an alcohol related problem has occurred--like a serious family argument or an accident. However, waiting to discuss problem can also have drastic consequences, so if personís behavior is destructive donít delay. Choose a time when person is sober and there arenít other distractions.
One thing people often worry about is what to say. Tell your loved one that you are worried about his or her drinking. Sharing that youíve read that alcoholism is a disease can help disarm person and allow them to not feel defensive. This can reduce likelihood of an argument. Explain to person what problems you see their drinking causing for them, as well as, how itís a problem for you.
Your breast augmentation in FloridaWritten by Jeff Lakie
Fortunately it is quite easy to find a place where you can perform breast augmentation. Florida is not an exception, as there are many clinics where such surgeries take place. But before you decide on any of them, make sure that you know everything you need about breast augmentation. Florida may be best place in world to lie on beach, but is bikini good enough reason for plastic surgery?
First of all, there are medical reasons. For example, excessive weigh loss during pregnancy can change your breasts' size and shape and it needs to be corrected. Then there is a problem of your comfort: if you can't find clothing that fits proportionately or if there is a big asymmetry in your breasts, it is a good idea to have breast augmentation. Florida is full of women who did it only for these reasons. Even feeling bad about your breasts might be a good reason. But if you think that you can use plastic surgery way you put your makeup, you can make a serious mistake. You must remember that breast augmentation, in Florida or in any other place, is a surgery, not magic. You can expect a change, but not new breasts! Small breasts will become a little bigger, asymmetric ones will gain a little symmetry, but breasts will essentially remain same. If you want to look like Pamela Anderson, you will need much more than a single surgery.
