How To Kill Your Addiction In 21 Days!

I personally know what it’s like to be addicted to something bad. When you’re addicted to something good, like exercise or eating healthy, then your life is made better. But when that addiction is to something bad, like porn, alcohol, or lying, then your life becomes miserable. Those bad addictions do nothing to improve your life.

However, with any addiction, it is possible to free yourself FOREVER from those things that make your life harder. Someone who is addicted to alcohol cannot live. Their lives evolve around the bottle. Same thing with porn (for both men and women): you’ll plan your day according to your addictions. Same thing with drinking soda: you’ll find yourself going broke because you love that Dr. Pepper more than you should!

Before you kill your addiction, you need to understand the following things:

  • You have a problem, and it doesn’t matter why you have it (so, blaming is no excuse!)
  • Giving into your cravings is YOUR choice — you’re not forced to do it
  • You do have the power to say “Yes” or “No” to your addictions
  • Your probem is only temporary — if you let it

It takes about 21 days for anybody to make or break a habit. In this case, we want to break a habit (or a bad addiction). And I’m sorry to say, but the best way to get rid of a bad habit is to stop cold turkey — temporarily, that is.

For 21 days, you’ll make the choice to simply not give in to your cravings. Whether it’s smoking (cigarettes or weed), sleeping with strangers every night, getting drunk, gambling, eating candy, or anything that’s taking over your life, you need to simply stop it for 21 days.

Now, what about trying to “wean yourself” from your poor habits? Well, let me give you an example that MEN would most likely understand:

Allen is a married man with children. He has a problem with porn. And he likes ALL types of porn: hardcore porn, soft porn, 18+ porn, lesbian porn, you name it. His mouth waters at all of them.

One day, Allen gets sick of always giving into his addictions. It’s ruining his desires for his wife. He can’t stop thinking about looking at women naked! His desires are out of control! So, he figures that he would tone it down. I mean, he can’t just stop cold turkey. That’s impossible!

So, instead of looking at the hardcore stuff on the internet, he decides to look at the store catalogs his wife gets on occasions. He’ll just look at the section with the women in their underwear. No big deal. It’s not porn. Many of these women are probably moms…hot mamas…very hot mamas.

Hmmm, he wonders if these hot mamas have husbands who are aware of what they’re doing. What if their husbands didn’t know.

Hmmm, what if there was a porn site about unfaithful wives…

And before you know it, he’s back on the computer looking …

Avoiding Wedding Disasters – Part 2

Money. It has been said that it is the root of all evil. If I was not in the wedding business, I would argue that the saying is not true. But I can not. I've seen too many families be torn apart and happy engaged couples split up because of financial wedding issues.

Let me give you an example. Here's a scenario. Mom and Dad are paying for most of the wedding. They feel that since they are spending their hard earned money, they are allowed to do and say what they want. This can result in the worse kind of power struggle for a young couple about to embark on a new life together. To the parents: if you're going to pay for the wedding, then pay for the wedding. Do not expect that because you're doing that, it gives you free reign over everyone and everything. To the bride and groom: if this is what it turns into, I would elope! Or get married in a field of flowers on somebody's farm before you should allow yourself to go through this torture. It's not worth it. Your happiness is worth much more.

Let's talk a little bit more about the money aspect of wedding planning. Unfortunately, finances has probably caused more marriages breaks than any other issues. Do not start your marriage being in debt up to your eyesballs. If you have to charge a few things here and there, that's fine. But make a decision how much you are going to spend and stick to it, realizing that it will always surpass that anyway. Come up with a budget and consider that your ultimate guideline. You will thank me for this piece of advise in years to come.

To family and friends: give the future bride and groom the best gift you can give – let them be. Please be understanding. Please let them have 'their' day. It seems to me that most people use those words, but really do not understand the meaning. Do not try to live through them or dictate to them what you want, for their wedding. If they're old enough to get married, then they are old enough to make these decisions. Guidance is not dictatorship.

As I said in Part 1 of this article, having specific needs and desires written down and explained to others is vital to avoid marriage planning disasters. The betrothed couple should make the list alone and then share it with those that want to help and / or are paying for the wedding. This small piece of advice will actually serve to eliminate most of your problems. …

Hypothyroidism Symptoms in Men – Know What to Look Out For

Symptoms of hypothyroidism in men can easily be detected if you are familiar with it. The problem with a lot of male is that they tend to ignore their health issues and are less likely to visit a doctor than women. They prefer home remedies and natural treatments than submit for a health check.

Hypothyroidism is a common condition in which the thyroid gland fails to produce sufficient amount of hormones which are essential to the body. There are different causes such as Hashimoto 'Disease, thyroiditis, and radiation treatment to mention a few.

Although hypothyroidism in men is less likely to develop, it is important to know how to prevent or treat this condition otherwise it will get worse. It is still slightly difficult to find resources and studies as most of the researchers are based on female thyroid problems.

Hypothyroidism symptoms in men are slightly different to that of women. Since the thyroid gland is responsible for a lot of body functions such as regulating metabolism, men are affected both physically and mentally. There are no specific signs of the disease and the symptoms are usually minor. Additionally, the signs will differ on the stage of the disease and the age of the patient.

Below are the most common HYPOTHYROIDISM IN MEN SYMPTOMMS :

• Feeling sluggish all the time
• Muscle and joint aches
• Gradual weight gain due to decreased metabolism even if appetite is affected
• Dry skin, brittle nails, and falling hair
• Constipation
• Hearing and visual difficulties
• Hooterseness
• Memory and concentration problems
Intolerance to cold
• Puffiness on eyes and extremitudes

The problem with hypothyroidism is that that it is hard to recognize and even some doctors are still not familiar with it. In fact it is usually misdiagnosed with other disorders. This is why associations and organizations fighting against this disorder are encouraging men and women who are 35 years of age and above to have regular checksups. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), blood tests, and physical checkup for goiter can help in diagnosing this.

There are also men who are more prone to having thyroid problems than others. For instance, those who already had goiter or other similar conditions or those who had radiation treatment to the thyroid and neck are more likely to develop it again. Men over 60 and those whose candidates had thyroid disorders are also high risks of underactive thyroid.

Thyroid symptoms in men should not be taken for granted. Instead, visit a physician or an endocrinologist immediately for treatment. …

Smart Shopping: 25 Ways to Slash Your Grocery Bills

No doubt about it, convenience foods save you time. But – and it’s a big but – convenience foods don’t save you money. If you rely on frozen dinners, helper foods, kits and take-out you are spending too much money on food. These tips will help you lower your bills and eat healthy, flavorful meals.

1. Plan meals by the week.

2. Make a grocery list, grouping foods by category. (Meat, dairy, produce, etc.)

3. Only buy what is on your list. Don’t succumb to impulse buying or kids’ demands for products hyped on TV.

4. Shop at stores that have the most specials.

5. Use coupons for healthy foods only. Don’t buy a product just because you have a coupon.

6. Roll your cart past “helper,” “partner,” “bakes” and “kits.” These products are over-priced, over-salted, and you can’t even pronounce some of the ingredients.

7. Mix up your own rubs. They take only minutes to make and you can customize them to your tastes.

8. Buy store and less-known brands, often made by top manufacturers.

9. Buy lean hamburger. It is better for you and there is less waste.

9. Drink water instead of pricey soda pop, which is often loaded with sugar and erodes your teeth.

10. Make your own salad dressing. You’ll save a bundle!

11. Make your own granola. Lots of recipes are posted on the Internet and kids will enjoy helping you.

12. Eat boxed hot cereal, not the kind in packets.

13. Buy day-old bread and coffee cake. The bread is perfect for French toast and grilled sandwiches. Stale coffee cake makes some of the best bread pudding you will ever taste.

14. Stores put pricey foods – the foods they want to push – at eye level. Bend down and look on the bottom shelves for bargains.

15. Learn how to cut up a whole chicken.

16. Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables.

17. Buy staples in bulk.

18. Make your own pudding. You will get twice as much for your money.

19. Buy a refrigerated or prepared crust and make your favorite pizza.

20. Use meat for flavor, as in stir-fry, instead of making it the feature of the meal.

21. Maximize leftovers. Make cream sauce for a little left over spinach. Use leftover vegetables in soup.

22. Put leftovers in sturdy plastic zipper bags to prevent freezer burn and waste. Label and date the bags.

23. Turn old bread into new, delicious croutons. Cut the bread into cubes, drizzle it with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder, oregano and basil. Bake in a 350 degree oven until crispy.

24. Make your own baking mix and store in a tightly covered jar. (Recipes are posted on the Internet.)

25. Involve kids and grandkids. The involved kids of today will turn into smart shoppers tomorrow.

Some Duties For the Groom

The groom (bridegroom) is the man about to be married or who has just been married. His partner is the bride – the bride is the center of all glory during the wedding ceremony, but without the groom, there would not be a ceremony in the first place.

The groom must first establish who will pay for the wedding. Traditionally, the wedding is hosted and paid for by the parents of the bride. Today, more couples opt to pay for their own wedding, allowing them to freely choose the kind of ceremony they want without putting the parents at a financial strain. Still, there are bride's fathers who have prepared for their daughter's marriage, and are all too happy to exercise this privilege.

If the couple chooses to be responsible, the groom must plan the budget with the bride. Once the organizers and the budget had been taken care of, the groom would be able to choose the marriage and reception venues for the style and type of the wedding the couple desires – whether it be a civil or church wedding, or large or small, or intimate, and so on) – and to choose the wedding date.

Choosing a wedding date is not a walk in the park – the groom must take into consideration the preferred venue, after all. The more popular the venue, the earlier and faster it gets booked. When working on a budget, it is important to note that it is less expensive to get married on a weekday or out of season – wedding service providers are all too pleased to have income during these times. Venues that have vacant dates in the very near future also charge less simply to fill the slot.

The groom must also be 100% aware of the guest list. Since weddings are family occasions, it typically follows that the couple's immediate families and relatives are included. Close friends and work collections can also be invited. Keep in mind that the perfect wedding guest list must show a balanced picture of the lives of the bride, the groom, and their families.

Legal requirements are ensured by the groom traditionally, along with paying the church or registrar's fee. Legal preliminaries different depending on how the couple chooses to marry and where. The groom also organizes the wedding insurance.

Choosing the best man and groomsmen naturally falls to the groom. The best man can be the closest male relative of the groom – if there's none, the groom's best friend would also be perfect. Some opt for the latter as an initial preference anyway. The groom will need the best man's help not only on the day itself but also during preparations. Of course, the groom must make sure that the bride finds his best man acceptable. The groomsmen are usually the close friends of the groom.

Organizing the wedding rehearsal falls to the groom – this needs careful consideration and planning because any last minute hits can be identified and …

Undoubtedly, fashion has always been a powerful means of expression, as the way we dress reflects our cultural provenience, mentality, personality, and even our feelings. In addition, fashion has the great merit of combining practicality with aesthetics, and could be perceived as "a pragmatic form of art". Being influenced by many different cultural and social factors and permanently adapting to the needs and requirements of a continuously developing society, fashion has suffered a lot of radical changes over the course of time. During its ongoing process of evolution, it has generated many different styles and trends, revealing traits characteristic to each distinct generation.

    Since the fact that it has created many tendencies and has evolved continuously in conformity with the society's ideals and needs, fashion has only recently begun to pay equal attention to all categories of age. Although they were generally neglected in the past by clothing manufacturers, children nowdays form an important segment of clients in the fashion industry, enjoying an extensive and diverse range of clothing appropriate for their age. The children's clothing industry has only recently begun to achieve a good exposure and popularity, gaining a lot of ground over the past few years.

    As the children's clothing industry was growing in popularity, more and more fashion designers decided to focus their work exclusively on designing clothes for young children and babies. Soon, the offer became more and more diversified, children's clothes gaining a lot in aspect and originality. Supermarkets and clothing stores began to fill up with ingenious and colorful clothing articles for children, lots of shops even specializing in exclusively selling children's clothes. In contrast to yesterday's children's clothes – poorly designed and, let's face it, quite dull – today's children's clothes are ingenious and appealing, stimulating their imagination and building their sense of aesthetics and beauty.

    Visibly enjoying "the attention" granted to them by the fashion industry, lots of children nowdays spend more and more time looking for the most interesting and imaginative clothing items they can find. Mesmerized by so many clothing models, designs and colors, many children can seriously decide upon a single item in particular! As soon as they step inside children's clothing stores, children are immersed in a colorful and magnificent world, similar to the world created by toy stores. Funnily, lots of today's children equally enjoy paying visits to both children's clothing stores and toy stores – fact that reveals the young generations' interest towards clothes, and thus their inclining towards originality, aesthetics and sense of beauty.
