Conquer Alcohol Addiction

If you are struggling with an alcohol addiction you are not alone. It’s estimated that more than 18 million Americas drink to excess everyday. How can you tell if your drinking habit has become addictive? If your family is saying alcohol is getting in the way of their relationship with you, listen to them. When alcohol negatively affects your family life, your job, or creates legal problems like DUIs, it’s time to acknowledge you need help.

Take time to write down some of the benefits you will enjoy when you stop drinking. Your risk of liver damage decreases and if your pregnant, you reduce the possibility of health problems for your unborn baby. You will have a chance to restart relationships at home and at work. Though the transformation will not happen overnight, you can heal important connections with the people who care about you the most. Most importantly, you will feel freedom from the many stresses connected to drinking.

Once you’ve decided to stop drinking, find ways to limit your exposure to setting that might trigger you to restart your habit. Usually you need more than one strategy to conquer your addiction. Using willpower alone is rarely enough. You might want to consult with a health care provider about ways you can control the physical aspects of the addiction.

If you feel you cannot stop drinking on your own, talk with your doctor about treatment centers. Your insurance may cover part or all of the care you receive. If you have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at work, you can discuss your concerns in a confidential setting and find the help you need. You can also check for local resources in your city.

You also want to address the emotional and habitual side of the problem. Many people find support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) help them resist the urge to drink. One simple way to slow down your addiction is through self hypnosis. Many people combine self hypnosis with support groups. The Press Play Series has just come out with a new Conquer Addiction CD. The CD runs for about 30 minutes and repeated use can help you break unhealthy dependence on alcohol. You can find the CD on Amazon or at http://RHChypnotherapy.com/. Check with the National Guild of Hypnotists to find a hypnotherapist near you. Create the life you want by gaining control over your life.

Red Male Organ – Problem or Good Circulation?

Sometimes maintaining good male organ health can lead a man to some confusion about whether some aspect of his member indicates a problem or not. For example, searching through men’s health sites, one often learns that a red male organ can be a sign of a problem, such as an infection. That’s definitely true, but it’s also important to remember that not every red male organ achieves that coloration due to infection. In many instances, a red male organ may be the result of a healthy circulation system – and that’s a good thing.
The “bad” red male organ

Self-diagnosing can be tricky – which is why consulting a doctor about male organ health concerns is advised. Very often when “red male organ” is listed as negative, it’s referring to a redness which is fairly limited in scope. For example, when balanitis is the cause of redness (almost exclusively in uncircumcised men), it’s generally localized in the head and top of the prepuce. In other instances, the redness may refer to a splotchy rash, which may have any number of causes, and which is generally not a consistent, even redness throughout the manhood.

There can be instances when a member is basically a deep red throughout the organ that indicates a problem – such as a member which has received a sunburn after a day at the nude beach – but more often, when the redness affects the entire manhood, it may in fact be a sign of good health.

The healthy red male organ

Why is that? Because in such instances, the redness is generally occurring during tumescence and is due to good circulation pumping blood throughout the manhood.

As most men know, it’s blood flow to the member that is largely responsible for the physical act of tumescence. (Arousal and stimulation may help to set up the circumstances for the tumescence, but it’s a rush of blood that actually creates the hardening of the organ.)

How much blood does the manhood capture during tumescence? As much as eight times the amount of blood that it uses when the organ is flaccid. That’s why it is so important to keep male organ blood vessels healthy and able to expand fully, so that when the time comes, an adequate supply of blood can fill the member and make an impressive tumescence possible.

And it’s that entrapment of blood which causes the manhood in fair-skinned men to achieve a healthy red glow. (In darker-skinned men, the hue is less often red but there is still typically some change in coloration.) Male organ skin is very thin, so the presence of blood is visibly represented by a reddening of the manhood.

And overall health

So a guy wants to have good male organ circulation in order for his tumescences to be firm. But it’s also worth noting that a red male organ from healthy circulation often means is a sign that a gut’s overall circulatory health is probably pretty good. (There can be exceptions.) By the same token, if tumescences are weak due to circulation problems, it may be a sign that a man’s overall circulatory health may be under par – and should be checked out by a doctor.

Good circulation can be indicated by a red male organ – but in some cases a red male organ may also come about when the organ has been rubbed raw due to overuse or unlubricated use. Applying a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help provide relief. The best creme for this will offer a combination of moisturizers, such as a high end emollient (like shea butter) and a natural hydrating agent (like vitamin E). The moisturization helps heal rawness, and the presence of a potent antioxidant (alpha lipoic acid is an excellent one) helps strengthen the male organ skin against future damage by fighting excess free radicals that weaken the skin.

Perhaps Drug Rehab Slipped Her Mind?

An Australian member of parliament has called for the children of drug addicts to be permanently removed from their parents and offered for adoption. Liberal MP Bronwyn Bishop wants to see adoption, rather than fostering, used to separate children from parents who are battling addiction. Excuse me, but has the honorable member completely forgotten about successful drug rehab programs?

Ms. Bishop, who is currently chairing an Australian parliamentary inquiry into the impact of illicit drug use on families, told the Australian Broadcasting Company’s Four Corners program that the current system is skewed towards the interests of drug-using parents, and not their children. She said there are hundreds of parents who are desperate to adopt children and give them love and good homes, but “there is this ‘biology first’ principle.”

By ignoring that successful drug rehab can keep a family together, and tossing “this biology first principle” on the trash heap, Ms. Bishop nullifies both the proven breakthroughs in the science of drug rehab, as well as one of the most primal urges of human history and experience – the urge for one’s own biological parents, and children.

Ms. Bishop’s detractors have been quick to speak up. Brisbane Youth Service spokeswoman Amanda Davies said there is no evidence that all people that use drugs are unable to parent their children. And Queensland Council of Social Service president Karyn Walsh said there is strong evidence that forced removals cause children long-term harm. “You can’t just go removing children simply because their parents have a drug addiction,” she said. “Children need to know their parents, and not all parents who have a drug addiction are bad parents, or incapable of parenting.”

Victorian Child Safety Commissioner Bernie Geary put it best when he said, “There is nothing in my experience worse than a child who’s sentenced to be without their parents for the rest of their lives. Children are better off with families in the long run.”

And let’s not forget the ultimate solution: if the parents do a successful drug rehab program that gets down to the bottom of why they’re taking drugs and resolves those issues, they won’t be addicts.
