Best Reviews for Firefly Vaporizer

I have been looking for a good portable vaporizer for awhile now, and it has been hard for me to find one that I really like. But my friend told me about a model that he has been using, and apparently it is pretty good. I want to check out a review of the Firefly portable vaporizer @Vapor Domain to see what other people are saying about this model. If it is as good as other people are saying, then it sounds like it is going to be good for me. Of course, I can only learn so much from reviews. To really know if I am going to like it or not, then I am going to have to try it for myself and to see how it works.

One of the things that I value the most in a vaporizer is efficiency. So it needs to burn the herbs as efficiently as possible, without getting too hot, and it really needs to have even heating, I think, in order to accomplish that. I also want something that is highly portable and easy to conceal.

It is not like I am worried about the law or anything, because I do not have that problem around here. But I still don’t want everyone in my business, so I would like to keep it concealed. Anyway, another good thing to have in a good vaporizer would be for it to have a good battery life. I like to take vaporizers out with me when I go mountain biking on the trails and there is no place to plug in and charge something out there. So I would need a good battery life to take it with me. I had one before I liked a bit but it broke and now I want a better one.

The Best E Liquid Refills on the Market Include the Ability to Taper off of Nicotine

I am on my way to quitting nicotine altogether. The really great thing is that I have not had a real cigarette in over a month. I am tapering myself off of nicotine I get by vaping. I know there is controversy about e-cigarettes, but I just know that I used it to quit lighting up. I bought one of those high end e-cigs that give you a good full draw that mimics real smoking much better. Then I found the best e liquid refills on the market. I needed to find a place that sold the liquid that tasted like the brand of cigarette I smoked. I did not want any candy flavors. I wanted full-bodied tobacco flavor in my vaping device.

Finding an e liquid that I can taper off the nicotine dose is the thing I needed to reach my goal.

How to handle Emotional Tension

Emotional tension is something most people deal with, on some level, on a daily basis.  You cannot always control tense situations that provoke you to lose your temper or become distraught. Things happen to everyone that are out of our control.

It is not the actual situation that is the problem, or the fact that you are experiencing emotional tension, it is how we handle it that matters most.  Emotional tension is inevitable, but not impossible to handle.
There are many tips for dealing with emotional tension.  The very first one is the easiest tip to follow and will benefit your health, as well.  It is as simple as taking a deep breath.  You will need to repeat the process a few times and in a manner that will benefit your body.
It is not just as simple as breathing.  You will need to adopt correct exercises that are focused on breathing and performed consciously.  While you are busy with your daily routine, take time to pause and repeat easy breathing exercises.
You will need to focus on how to take in a deep breath so it will help eliminate stress.  Opening up the blocks to your consciousness will help clear your mind and make you more aware so you can improve tense and emotional situations.
Not only will it put your mind in a tranquil state, but it will increase your learning ability and imagination.  This alone can improve any emotional tension, lead you to a relaxed physical state, and help you deal with the stresses of daily life.
When you direct your body to take a deep breath during times of stress and tension, you are telling your body to relax.
Focus on taking a deep breath from you abdomen, then deeply inhale from your nose for five seconds.  You have just supplied oxygen to your brain and blood which in turn will allow your body to relax and become calm.  Hold that breath for twenty seconds.  This will cleanse your blood and allow your immune system to kick in.  You are purifying your lungs and expelling oxygen to every part of your physique.
To fully feel the benefits of deep breathing, exhale the breath you have held for ten seconds, through your mouth.  This allows your body to release carbon monoxide, as well as other toxins.  For the best results, it is recommended that you find the perfect number of seconds you can hold with ease.  Once you have this figured out, you can begin implementing this technique when you feel emotionally tense.
Just keep in mind that it is best to hold your breath as long as you can in a comfortable state, and exhale twice the amount of time that you took your breath in. This is a safe and healthy way of dealing with emotional tension.  It is easy to do, doesn’t cost you any money, and can be done virtually anywhere.  Replace your stress and strain with deep breathing and find out how happy and relaxing your life can be.

The Causes of Feeling Down

Feeling down is an obvious reaction to life’s disappointments, impediments, and day to day struggles. A substantial number of people refer to this kind of feeling as depression or sadness. When people are depressed they feel down, empty, apathetic, inpatient, irritated, and in some cases even violent.

Feeling down affects your day to day activities includinginterfering with your eating habits, your studies, your sleep, and your capacity to work. There are many ways in which you can tell whether you are down or if you are depressed.

It is important to pay attention to the sighs, and to seek help if the problem becomes severe. When you cannot sleep for a longer period of time, or is you sleep excessively, then you may be suffering from depression. Feeling helpless or worthless is another sign. Sometimes it may even become difficult for you not to take control over your thoughts regardless of how much you try.

Some people who feel down or depressed lack appetite altogether, or cannot stop eating, because they find comfort in food. For those who consume alcohol, they may find themselves drinking excessively or engaging in strange behaviours.

Some become very bad-tempered, and more aggressive than usual. Another symptom is when you find that you have a very difficult timeconcentrating with normal everyday activities. These are symptoms associated with depression only if they occur for a prolonged period of time.

Feeling low has been attributed to a number of causes. One of the major causes is loneliness, when a person is lonely; they have a very low feeling of self-worth.

Other causes of feeling low or depressed include being short of money, being separated from family members, the death of a loved one, or anything that adversely affects the person’s life that is having the low feelings.

It is also common for people who lack social support to experience such feelings. Socialization is something that everyone needs in their life to feel that they are worthy. Marital problems can always be the onset of depression problems.

Another cause could be the weather. As strange at that may sound, studies have shown that the winter blues bring people down mentally.

Unemployment is also another factor that can cause people grief. This is especially true for people who are middle aged, and lose their job to outsourcing or to younger people entering the job market. This is seen every day in the news all over the United States.

Bad health can also cause depression issues, especially if the issue causes the person to be terminal. When you suffer from chronic diseases that seem as if they just won’t heal, you feel lifeless and depressed.

Many people who suffer from long-term diseases lack hope in life, and in most cases some of them have feelings of wanting to die. This is when a specialist should be contacted right away, to prevent suicidal thoughts.

Drug and alcohol abuse can also contribute to depression. It typically drains financial resources, and causes drastic changes in a person. It not only ruins the person, but also their loved ones around them. Whatever people may think, there is hope and help. They just have to realize that they have a problem and seek help.

How Long Can It Take To Start Your Period After Stopping Birth Control

Should You Be Concerned if Your Period Stops after Birth Control

One of the most common symptoms after stopping birth control is the absence of menstruation. It is a term referred to as post-pill amenorrhea and is the act of the body restoring hormone levels. Hormones will regulate ovulation and determine menstrual cycles in women.

Hormone pills or birth control will have women on a regular and predictable cycle with medical control and stopping the birth control will actually replace this responsibility back to the body’s natural functions. Everyone may not respond the same and it can take a varied amount of time for the body to return to its normal function.

On average most women will respond within 4 to 6 weeks as their bodies cycle once without the aid of the medical hormones used in birth control. Some women may typically wait to up to 3 months without worry or concern. It is important to calculate and monitor when one quits the birth control and the active cycle resumes.

Every woman and their bodies can respond differently and it may also be determined by the type or strength of the birth control that will affect the cycles return. A stronger form may cause the body to take longer than a smaller dosage as the body will have to adjust and correct a larger gap of hormone replacement. Many birth controls can have information that can help determine the expected wait for a menstrual cycle to return. One can check this information online or with a health professional such as a doctor or pharmacist.

If you think it has been too long then it may be necessary to perform an at home pregnancy test to determine if one could actually have reason for not having a menstrual cycle. It could be safe precaution to check for pregnancy as soon as one quits birth control to help determine ovulation and chances of pregnancy and cycle of the pregnancy.

To monitor for possible pregnancy it may be necessary to perform a pregnancy test every week to 2 weeks until the menstrual cycle returns, this will help in also determining the time of conception and date of pregnancy.  It is not uncommon for a woman to become pregnant soon after stopping birth control while some may take longer than normal to become pregnant. This is not only determined by the woman and her natural hormone levels but also by the types of birth control and their strengths.

There are some health factors that could be present if it has been longer than 6 months that could cause alarm and may require a visit to a gynecologist. There are tests that can be performed to insure that hormone levels are current and the body is not suffering from any type of disease or cancers. Although it is not uncommon for a woman to not return to normal for that long and even up to a year without complication.

Some women who suffer from stress or low weight can see longer delays in their cycles return as their bodies will have a harder time in restoring natural functions. It is important to monitor your body and its changes and to seek professional aid if questions or concerns may arise.

Mental & Physical Health

Most people today would agree that health is not a one-dimensional experience. Commonly accepted definitions of health, such as that put forward by the World Health Organisation, incorporate physical, mental and social aspects of health. It follows that being healthy does not just mean being physically fit. Being of sound mind is also important, as is social wellness or the ability to form and maintain a network of friends and associates. Some would add spiritual health as another aspect of wellbeing. But what is the relationship between these components of health, and what is the implication of being strong in one area and/or lacking in another. In particular, what is the connection between mental and physical health and what does “healthy body, healthy mind” really mean ?

It is common to consider aspects of health as interdependent; that is, each element influences the other. Practitioners using this type of health model would look at the balance between aspects of health when assessing wellbeing. They may suggest activity in one realm to offset an over-emphasis in another. For example, someone who is working long hours in an office expending much mental energy and heading toward “burnout” may be advised to incorporate more physical exercise into his/her lifestyle in order to bring the wellness system into balance. This may seem like a simple remedy, but the implications can be quite profound. Making even a small effort in a (previously) neglected realm often results in a much more balanced perspective. By taking some time out to work on the physical aspect of health the mind gets a well-earned break and would most likely return to work refreshed and invigorated. Within this framework a balance of the health components is advocated and over-attention to one component of health is not.

It is generally accepted that there is a relationship between physical and mental health. Many athletes would agree that it takes a great deal of mental effort to sustain physical performance. You need only think of a momentary lapse in concentration, say in a game of tennis; to see how closely related the mental and physical aspects of sporting performance are. Although the impact of the mind on physical performance is generally accepted the influence of physical activity on mental health is not as widely acknowledged or understood. There has, however, been research supporting the notion that physical activity has the capacity to enhance mental health. Physical activity had been linked to a host of outcomes including positive mood, lower levels of depression and elevated alertness and concentration. Many would attribute these associations to chemical changes occurring within the body when physical exercise is performed. Other explanations are less direct and implicate factors such as the social aspects of exercise or the sense of mastery achieved in participating in sport. Although there is definitely some relationship between physical health and mental health, the pathways between the two are not yet fully understood.

It is important to keep in mind that the positive impact of physical exercise on mental health or wellbeing is relevant for mental health but not necessary mental ill-health. It would be unlikely that someone suffering from a mental illness, such as schizophrenia, would be prescribed exercise as a remedy. If it was as simple as physical health = mental health, there would be little need for psychologists. However, most health practitioners would agree that physical exercise is often a useful adjunct to therapy for mild mental conditions where physical exercise has been linked to positive treatment outcomes.

Protect your Mental Health

Protect your Mental Health

Mental and emotional health is a vital part of wellbeing. ‘There is no health without mental health”, says Professor Jane Fisher, the Jean Hailes Professor of Women’s Health at Monash University. ‘Take the time to focus on the positive and the things you can do to boost your mental health and sense of wellbeing.”

Close relationships are one of the most important protective factors for mental health, says Prof Fisher. “Nourish good relationships, be committed to them, and get professional help to address destructive or negative relationships if necessary.”

To build new connections with people who share your interests, you could contribute to activities and projects in your local community or join a voluntary organisation, choir, mother’s group, etc.

Poor physical health or ongoing health conditions can limit your ability to do things, and can affect your mental health. Have regular health checks, and try to be as physically active as you can – There are many free or low cost activities that can keep you active, such as walking groups and community gardens, and these can also give you a break from everyday worries.

Every day, try to find something that gives you a sense of reward or achievement. It might be a simple thing like preparing an evening meal, putting a new plant in the garden, or contributing to a project at work.

If you have any concerns about your mood, mental health or physical wellbeing, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Share with a friend, or seek professional help.

Prof Fisher will talk about the importance of mental health at midlife in the free webcast event -Fifty Shades of Midlife – menopause, mood & more’ on 31 October. Book now at www.jeanhailes.org.au/webcast2012

Exercise Effective Remedy For Depression

Exercise Effective Remedy For Depression

With approximately one million Australians currently suffering from depression and this figure expected to grow even further in future years, it’s no surprise medical practitioners, researchers and people with depression are looking to natural remedies like exercise to treat the illness.

A recent systematic review published in the Journal of Science in Medicine and Sport has affirmed regular exercise is likely to be effective in the treatment of depression symptoms.

Central Queensland University Researcher and Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) Spokesperson Robert Stanton said with the prevalence of antidepressant medication dispensed within Australia having increased by more than 95 per cent within the last decade, it had been critical to pinpoint the appropriate dose of exercise for treating depression symptoms most effectively.

‘Understanding the appropriate exercise dosage for people with depression will provide accredited exercise physiologists with a framework that may be adopted in clinical practice to improve quality of life, possibly without the use of medication,” Mr Stanton said.

‘My research partner, Associate Professor Peter Reaburn, and I found exercise programs that comprise moderate-intensity, supervised aerobic sessions that last for 30-40 minutes and are undertaken three to four times weekly over a period of at least nine weeks are likely to be most effective in the treatment of depression symptoms.”

‘In fact, some studies show exercise to be equally as effective as medication or psychological interventions in reducing symptoms of depression.”

Mr Stanton said the research also suggested an affect-regulated approach to exercise – that is, where the intensity of an exercise session is determined by how the patient feels during the bout of exercise – may have the potential to increase short and long term adherence to exercise programs for people with depression.

‘For some participants, exercising at a physiologically determined -moderate’ intensity may not always be perceived as pleasant,” Mr Stanton said.

‘Where motivation to commence and maintain exercise is low, it may be valuable to change the session’s intensity to a level that the participant feels is more acceptable.”

Depression research and information body The Black Dog Institute points out regular exercise can be used to alleviate a number of symptoms of depression by increasing energy levels, improving sleep, distracting the sufferer from worries and inspiring a sense of control and self-esteem.

Mr Stanton said exercising in a group also had the potential to provide people with depression with social support and reduce loneliness.

‘We’ve really just scratched the tip of the iceberg with this research, and it would be interesting to delve even deeper into the best exercise modes for people with depression, whether solo or group exercise sessions are more beneficial and what the best model for exercise progression may be,” Mr Stanton said.

‘People with depression carry a significantly greater risk of chronic disease and premature mortality risk compared to those without depression, so it’s crucial that appropriate steps are taken to treat the illness,” Mr Stanton said.

Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) is the peak professional body for exercise and sports science in Australia and provides national leadership and advocacy on key issues.  It supports its 3,500+ members and the community through fostering excellence in professional practice, education, training and research.

When Your Friends Do Not Understand Your Mental Health Condition

You are just diagnosed with a mental health condition such as depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, addiction, OCD, or some other mental health disorder. You go see a counselor to get help. Eventually your relatives and closest friends find out your condition. The problem is that some of them get on your case and do not understand what you are going through. Here are four ways to deal with this situation.

1. Listen To The Professionals And Not Your Friend: Your friends may mean well, but when it comes down to it, the professionals know your situation more than anyone. They know what you are going through and are trained to deal with your situation. Your friends do not have the answers to your medical condition. When you have questions about your mental health situation consult with your counselor or other mental health professional. Listen to them and follow their advice and not your friends.

2. Your Goal Is To Get Better: Your goal is to get better, period. Don’t waste your time arguing with your friends or relatives who are giving you a difficult time. This isn’t a public relations event where you need to get everyone’s approval. This is your life and you’re the one suffering. Your main focus is for you to get better. This is the number one thing.

3. Tell Your Friends To Learn About Your Condition: Tell your friends and relatives that the best way for them to help you is to learn about your condition. They could talk to a counselor, they could do family therapy, they could read some good books or join you at a support group to learn about your condition. They won’t know exactly the pain your suffering but they will have some idea of what you are going through. If some of your friends won’t do this, then stay away from them. They will only make things worse.

4. Distance Yourself From People Who Give You A Hard Time: This may seem cruel but if some of your friends or relatives are hindering your progress in getting better, then kindly tell them to follow step Three or else tell them to stay away and go bother someone else. Distance yourself from those people who won’t make an effort to help understand what you are going through. You need to surround yourself with positive and supportive people. Again, if you have problems or issues with a particular person, you can always ask your counselor for advice on how to deal with them.

Take advantage of the help that is available around you. If possible, talk to a professional who can help you manage your depression and anxieties. They will be able to provide you with additional advice and insights on how to deal with your current problem. By talking to a professional, a person will be helping themselves in the long run because they will become better able to deal with their problems in the future.

Remember your goal is to get better. Treat your mental health issues as a medical condition. If you have a medical condition, you go see a doctor to help treat it. Same thing applies to your mental health issues. Go see a professional and focus on getting better. Don’t try to get everyone’s approval.

Stan Popovich is the author of “A Layman’s Guide to Managing Fear Using Psychology, Christianity and Non Resistant Methods” – an easy to read book that presents a general overview of techniques that are effective in managing persistent fears and anxieties.

What to Do If You Have Trouble Falling Asleep

If you are having troubles falling asleep, the chances are good that other aspects of your life are suffering from your inability to get to sleep. If you are among the millions of people who want to know how to go to sleep faster, there are some tips and tricks to help you start getting a better nights rest.

Understand Your Circadian Rhythms

One of the best ways to getting on the path to a better night’s rest is understanding your Circadian Rhythms. Circadian Rhythms are commonly known as an Internal Sleep System. Humans and most other living beings are ruled and influenced by these natural rhythms that dictate our sleep patterns. There are many factors that come into play when you are trying to fall asleep. One of the most influential factors is your body temperature. While you may not give much thought to the how your body temperature can play into your sleep patterns, it is a major deal. Think about the last night it was hot and humid outdoors. Can you recall how difficult it was to get comfortable? This is an example of how your Internal Sleep System is being disrupted by uncomfortable and less than optimal sleeping conditions. On nights like this, it is probably a good idea to run your air conditioner and get the interior of your home cooler to help facilitate faster, sounder and more refreshing sleep. You do not have to crank the temperatures to extremely cold temperatures, but by taking some of the humidity and lowering your temperatures to something more reasonable, you will fall asleep faster.

A Better Night’s Sleep Can Be Yours

By understanding your Internal Sleep System and taking steps to maximize your sleeping environment. Using this information you can take steps to start getting your system back on track. To prepare your mind to slow down and relax, it is suggested that you avoid watching TV or using electronic devices such as your mobile phone, laptop or tablet computer for about an hour before you are planning on going to sleep. Other things you should not do right before your expected bedtime is exercise or drinking highly caffeinated beverages that act as stimulants and prevent you from falling asleep. It is also recommended that your bedroom is a little cooler, as this is a better temperature for sleeping. The more you are able to relax your mind, the easier it will be to fall asleep. You might consider taking a warm bath with a few drops of essential oils that promote relaxation in them. This will help your body temperature adjust to the optimal temperature for sleep. If possible, you should try to set up a regular sleep schedule by going to bed at the same time every night and waking up at the same time in the morning, The more you are able to establish a pattern of sleep, the better your chances of getting a better night’s rest.

 

Help a Friend by Knowing the Signs of Alcohol Addiction

Even though an alcoholic may be reluctant to admit their problem, there are several indications of alcohol addiction. It is important for friends, family and spouses to know the signs of alcohol addiction so they can help convince their loved one to get help with overcoming it. The quicker an alcoholic gets help, the better their chances are for saving their relationships and improving their overall health.

Signs of Addiction

The signs of alcoholism are not always obvious like seeing someone drunk and stumbling around. Many people do a good job of hiding their alcohol consumption, and they seem to function normally on a daily basis. Even though they may be hiding their alcohol addiction, there are indications of a problem if friends and family look closely enough.

Feeling Shame

People who drink may hide it because they are ashamed of their drinking habit. When they do drink, they will hide it by drinking at home by themselves. They don’t want people to know they drink because of their shame and their inability to control it.

Drinking to Relax

When they’ve had a bad day at work, they often feel the need to drink in order to relax. Even a long day at home with the family can lead to their need to have a glass of wine or a beer to unwind and help them sleep.

Unable to Control Drinking

Alcoholics will often drink more than they intended to when they go out with friends or even when they drink at home by themselves. While they may have intended only to have one drink in a social situation, they usually won’t stop at one and continue to drink. They may even lose count of how much they’ve had and end up becoming drunk.

Hiding their Drinking

Functioning alcoholics are usually well versed in knowing how to hide their drinking so their acquaintances and co-workers may not even realize that they do drink. They will often drink at home alone, or they may disguise their drinking by carrying around a bottle of water that is really vodka.

Making Bad Decisions

People who drink heavily will often make other bad decisions that could lead to serious consequences. They may get behind the wheel of their car when drinking and end up going to jail for driving while intoxicated or they may pick a fight without someone over something inconsequential. They may often find themselves in legal trouble because of their addiction.

By knowing the signs of alcoholism, friends and family can help their loved one get help. They can help them get into an alcohol rehab programme so they can learn how to deal with the stresses in their lives that lead them to drink. They will learn alternative ways to handle stress, such as exercising or meditating.

Many alcohol programmes will also help patients learn new skills, so when they overcome their addiction, they can lead a better life. These skills may include cooking healthy foods, managing money or learning proper grooming to look their best.

 

What Is Manipulation Under Anesthesia?

Manipulation under anesthesia, or MUA, is a treatment method for different types of pain and syndromes that result from fibrous adhesions and scar tissue in various joints throughout the body. Whereas many of the procedures used to treat these conditions are invasive and require recovery time, manipulation under anesthesia is safe and non-invasive.

Which Conditions does MUA Treat?

Dr. Tafler and his team treat a variety of conditions, including pain in the back, neck, and joints, muscle spasms, shortened muscles, fibrous adhesions, and other long-term pain syndromes. While you are under sedation, performed by a licensed anesthesiologist, he manipulates the affected area to break up scar tissue and adhesions using a variety of stretches and kinesthetic maneuvers. These manipulations and stretches will help you regain your mobility and free yourself from the pain.

Why Manipulation Is Better than Surgery

If you have fibrous adhesions or scar tissue in a joint, whether due to a condition or some sort of injury, there are several options available for treatment. The first involves invasive surgery during which the surgeon makes and incision and then cuts away the fibrous tissue or growth. Another option involves laser surgery, which requires a much smaller incision but is still invasive. With either of these options, you must recover for a period before you will have normal use of the treated area. Manipulation under anesthesia is completely non-invasive, and there is no recovery time. In fact, many patients regain range of motion and experience pain relief in a single treatment.

Does It Require After-Care?

Although post-anesthesia care is not always necessary, many patients benefit from additional procedures after their manipulation under anesthesia. Some of these include the application of moist hot packs to the area, which reduces swelling, increases blood flow, and stimulates healing. Another popular after-care therapy is massage, which improves circulation in the affected area and promotes healing, as well. Any patient could benefit from active rehabilitation for a period of four to six weeks, as this helps to teach patients exercises and routines that may discourage the formation of more scar tissue or adhesions.

The Role of Family & Friends in Treating Drug Addiction

When you are addicted to drugs, one of the first things you lose is your family. That’s because your need to get high becomes more important than anything else in your life. You lose sight of the other things that used to be important to you, such as your career, your finances, and your health. While all of these things are bad to lose, destroying your relationship with your family is by far the worst.

Drug addiction usually isn’t an instant process. You don’t automatically become addicted to meth or cocaine the first time you try it. Despite the way it is portrayed in popular culture, even heroin isn’t usually instantly addictive. Most people use heroin and other drugs recreationally, at least at first. They don’t need to use these drugs, they choose to take them because they are fun, euphoric, and they make other people and life more interesting.

Eventually, however, taking dangerous drugs becomes less of a fun pastime and more of a physical need. Over time, the body builds a physical dependency on the chemicals contained in controlled substances, as well as a psychological dependency. Some drugs that aren’t physically addictive – such as marijuana – can cause a mental addiction that can feel just as strong and binding.

What Happens to the Family

When you get to the point where you are addicted to drugs physically or psychologically – or both – your prime objective is to get more drugs. Most people who reach this stage of addiction will do anything at all as long as it results in getting what they need.

That means they will lie, deceive and even steal from family members in order to feed their addiction. Bank accounts will be cleared out. Property will be sold, even if it doesn’t belong to you. Savings will be stolen. Stories will be concocted to justify the money you need to buy more drugs.

The End of Trust

Eventually, however, you will be discovered. You can’t keep this type of deception up forever, or even for very long. And when your wife, your parents, your siblings and other family and friends find out that you have been lying to them in order to support your drug addiction, they are no longer going to trust you.

That means they won’t believe your lies any longer. They won’t be willing to lend or give you money, even if you genuinely need it for other things such as rent, bail money, or food. In time, they may even cut off their contact with you altogether. It is a painful thing to do, but in their minds it is better not to know you at all than to see you struggle with your addiction and lose every time.

Your Support System

You may not realize it until it is too late, but nobody can make it on their own. You need other people to survive, especially the people you love. So when they turn your back on you and leave you all alone to face the problems caused by your addiction, the results can be devastating.

Homelessness, mental illness, violence, crime and other issues you may have thought you would never have to face suddenly become real possibilities for you. Even if it’s not you who is getting into trouble, just being around other people who are abusing drugs is a dangerous place to be. And worst of all, without the support of your family and friends, it may seem as if there is no way out.

This downward spiral doesn’t have to end in your death or imprisonment, however. There’s always still time to pull out of it. All you need to do is stop, ask for help, and put yourself at the mercy of others.

Families Forgive

Regardless of how bad you treated them in the throes of your addiction, if you genuinely ask them for help and show that you are sincere in your intentions, anything is possible. It’s your family, after all. Blood is thicker than water. Love can build a bridge.

Just don’t expect them to greet you with open arms right away. It probably took you a long time to sabotage their trust in you. So it’s going to take even longer to build it back up. But you can do it if you take it one step at a time.

Next Steps

The best way to show you are sincere about kicking your drug addiction is to get professional help. This is probably the only way you will be able to get clean and begin your rehabilitative process. If you try to stop taking drugs on your own, you are almost certainly likely to fail. And then you are right back where you started in the eyes of your family and friends.

Getting straight is possible. You just have to be fully committed to it and not expect miracles.

I hope you are all well today. I was sitting in my doctors office and he is one of those doctors that does not believe in giving me good stuff to read and entertain me while I wait, the reading materials are all about health. So, instead of banging my head on the wall next to me, since that may draw negative attention, I picked up one of those health magazines.

Something caught my eye, jogging is something that tends to pop into my life from time to time. I do not enjoy jogging, I do not find it to be a fun exercise. I have jogged inside and outside, I don’t like either. Recently, I have come to a happy balance in a effort to lose weight. I recognize that, with my body, jogging does increase the amount and speed of weight loss. So, I do a jogging, walking combination on my treadmill. I set a number in my mind jog to it, when I have met my goal, I walk, and I repeat the process, It works for me.

So, as I am reading this article about jogging, It has the same old stuff in it, good for my body, yea yea yea. But it mentions one I had not heard of, good for my brain. Brain? It seems they did a study and the people who could walk at a brisk pace or run as the treadmill became gradually steeper, also did the best completing long term memory exercises.

How to fight bad breath

Specialists say that the first treatment
The problem is identified, and the first thing you should know is whether the person breath smell good or bad, most people have a fetid smell of breath, but they do not know it, because the brain adapts to the smell of one’s personal.
There is a means of self-diagnosis of the first test of the tongue, and find out what is the color? If the rosy brilliant, it refers to the same well, but the white tongue and peeling in its appearance indicates smelly mouth, according to Harold Katz, a doctor and founder of bacteria breathe, California clinic.
The second test, according to Katz, is licking the back of the hand, and left to dry for a few seconds, and then try to smell the same place.
He said Katz, “It is important to remember that bad breath is usually not a sign of dental health Palestinian corrupt make bad breath .. and the same for the San,” pointing out that “it was found more than 600 species of bacteria in the mouth of the average person. ”
But what is the best way to fight the bacteria that cause bad breath? According to experts, the dry mouth is the most important reason to target the bacteria, so it does not need to be a lot of fluids.

8 Reasons Why Smoking Marijuana Is “Bad” For You

Society’s preconception that “weed is bad” has slowly been changing over the years. We’ve seen evidence of changing attitudes towards weed to the south, with US states legalizing marijuana, in the growing merit of marijuana as a treatment of diseases, and the relaxed attitude towards cannabis in our own community, though that isn’t exactly new. With the much more positive light modernly shed on marijuana, you’d think the green stuff was truly good for you. One collection of research seeks to prove otherwise.

Wayne Hall, a researcher who studied the adverse effects of cannabis on the human body in 1993, wished to see how things have changed in the last 20 years, after many more studies have been carried out on the topic. Compiling research over two decades, including studies from New Zealand, Germany, and the Netherlands, his findings won’t be pleasing to smokers.

According to Hall, over the past 20 years, research on smoking marijuana has shown that:

-1 in 10 people who regularly smoke marijuana will develop a dependence
-Driving while high will double the risk of a car crash
-Teenagers who regularly smoke are twice as likely to drop out of school
-Chronic use of cannabis as a teenager and into adulthood increases the likelihood of cognitive impairment (though the exact reason why is unknown)
-Regular smokers have double the risk of developing mental disorder like schizophrenia, especially if there is a family history and they started smoking in adolescence
-Marijuana smokers are more likely to develop chronic bronchitis
-Those who smoke marijuana as a teenager are much more likely to use harder illegal drugs
-A strong link exists between smoking weed and the development of cardiovascular diseases in middle-aged adults.

A very depressing mix of findings, especially, if like many of us in Montreal, you’ve been smoking weed since high school. Not all is lost though, as many academics believe many of the aforementioned adverse effects can be cased by many different factors, and not solely due to smoking weed. One example would be the likelihood of doing other drugs. It isn’t the marijuana forcing the person to try other substances, it is the environment and persons (like a drug dealer) you encounter when smoking weed that increase the chances.

A Sleep Study Huh? Sign Me Up

So I was listening to the radio today and I heard an advertisement for a medical group that is conducting a study and is looking for participants who are willing to be subjected to tests while they sleep.

They were pretty vague with exactly what types of studies would be done, but I am going to assume that you are just hooked up to some machine somehow.

It does seem a little creepy, but at the same time it would be interesting to find out if there is something that I do not know about the way I sleep.

I am sure that we have all questioned whether or not we sleep well, and maybe this is the way to tell.

I won’t do it just due to laziness probably, but if the opportunity ever presents itself it might be kind of cool.
