For many people struggling with addiction, the biggest and toughest step toward recovery is the very first one: deciding to make a change. It’s normal to feel conflicted about giving up your drug of choice, even when you realize it’s causing problems in your life. Change is never easy—and committing to sobriety involves changing many things, including:

 the way you deal with stress
 who you allow in your life
 what you do in your free time
 how you think about yourself

You may wonder if you’re really ready for all that change or if you have what it takes to quit. It’s okay if you’re torn. Recovering from addiction is a long process, one that requires time, commitment, motivation, and support. As you contemplate your situation, the following tips can help you make the decision.

Gambling takes many forms from playing the lottery to betting on horses to high-stakes casino betting. Many people enjoy some form of gambling as a fun, but infrequent hobby or pastime. However, some suffer from a gambling addiction that can wreak havoc on their personal and financial lives.

When a person suffers from a gambling addiction, there are fewer outward signs than other addictions. A gambling addict may feel depressed and suffer mood swings, but unless their financial situation is an open book to others, their problem may be severe before anyone notices. For this reason, gambling addiction is often referred to as a “hidden” addiction.

Unlike an average person gambling for fun, a person suffering from a gambling addiction does not know when to quit. They gamble more than they can afford to lose. They might gamble their rent or mortgage payment, their grocery money, or even their entire life savings.

A moderate addiction to money may not always be hurtful; but when taken in excess it is nearly always bad for the health.

Where is Tom and Jerry , kids ?


Teenagers and adolescents sneaking a peek in the bad world through the TV is the major focus of its ill effects on the youth nowadays. And it is indeed true. So the overall effect would have to be this itself, as we live in a world full of youth population. And to stop, or to even begin to reduce this, the young people must understand that watching is one thing and implementing what you’ve seen on the screen is a totally different one. And it has bad results too. So these people have just got to stop copying celebs and involve themselves in some other, better activities like reading books or going out with friends, instead of sitting in front of TV all day and grabbing all unproductive things.

What all we can see now days?
• Channel promoting violence.

• Language
• Not creating a positive response or impact

There has been a subtle (or perhaps not so subtle) shift in the tone of both the shows and their characters.
The tone of the newer teen goes beyond excessive gas jokes. the same proliferation of new channels that provides additional educational opportunities also provides opportunities for children to be exposed to more inappropriate content than ever before.

Many of the shows now rely on constant male/female tension and the guest for a date to center the plot around.
The changes on the Disney channel shows, their content; even actors themselves have been slow and subtle over the past few years, but there is a definite loss of innocence that is creeping into many of the CARTOON channel shows that too in the most popular shows.

The addiction of TV viewing & most children are victims of that. The other is the content, mostly based on picking or hitting at each other and others which would guide children for quarrels & fights as normal behavior.

Educative cartoons are rare these days, guess some better ones.

It is not uncommon for children to have access to movies and programs intended to be viewed only by mature audiences. While technology has been put into place to help conscientious parents censor the channels and shows their children can access, these methods are far from fool-proof and they are only as effective as the parents who choose whether or not to utilize them. This unfettered access to adult material appears to manifest itself in a variety of different ways but most people would agree today’s children are more aware of adult themes (violence) at an earlier age than ever before.

Parents are ultimately responsible for monitoring what their children watch on TV, but if kids aren’t safe with family oriented powerhouse like the DISNEY Channel anymore, then where are they safe?

VOILENCE..VULGUR LANGUAGE….NEGATIVE IMPACT…!!
