- Smoking : This has been a severe problem which is eating people for generations together. True !

According to WHO, there is a smoker getting killed because of his own so called PLEASURE, one every 6.5 second !!!
more than 443,000 Americans are killed because of smoking. Shockingly, 50000 of them are passive smokers!!
2000 people a day are dying in china just because of smoking !!
Nearly 1 in 10 deaths in India a re caused by smoking. This makes a deadly 900,000 people !!
- Alcohol : Another deadly sin !! One of the most astonishing facts is that over 2.5 million people are dying annually, world wide. where are we heading to ? Out of all the men who die, 6.2% are died due to alcohol and 1.1% women die because of alcohol.
There are to scaring things about these deaths. One is, we are talking about only recorded deaths here. the number could be potentially more than this. Second is, we are only talking about the direct deaths here. The passive deaths could be atleast 30% of the 2.5 million. Passive to drinking ? you think it’s not possible ? think of a family where the man died and the family lost the one and only earning source .. what happens next, the whole family dies of starving? These are the passive deaths of Alcohol. scary.. yeah ? there is more to it, Alcoholics are tend to get into serious issues like violence, child neglect and abuse, and absenteeism in the workplace which may cause passive deaths again !!!
So, how do you handle this, if you are a victim of alcohol… The best way is to visit a re-rehabilitation center. if you want to test your tongue before u hit the center, you can try few easy steps which may work. Read more about drinking deaths. Read more about those families who lost the man of the family or an affectionate mother because of this drinking. Take a route to any village and try to visit the families where whole family is starving because they lost their man, these are high impacting things which can potentially warn you at the first peg itself. If these are not working, then re-rehabilitation centers are the best.
*** the sad part is that, when we are beginning with Alcohol , we all think it’s ENTERTAINMENT. By the time we realize it’s really not fun, we can’t get out already!!!
- Obesity: The darling addiction of all, for many people. Obesity is not a SINGLE problem. It comes with a big package which will find one or the other way to kill a person. Diabetes, Cholesterol, Heart diseases, cardiovascular diseases .. what else is required to kill a healthy body. Obesity is not a person being made fun of because of the dangling tummy alone!! There are more and more serious issues to it.
Today, thanks to the increased awareness of the significance of health, many people are willing to fight against Obesity. So pick up one of the best diet plans and follow that if you have been one of the victims. Simple work outs and fresh/ balanced diet helps fight obesity most efficiently.
** Try replacing one meal with heavy fruits and vegetables like carrot etc. This is a definite weight reducing tip.
- Workaholics : I am one too !!! But thank god, I am at least able to manage not get into a depression or any other imbalance, when I am not working. I have seen tons and tons of people who do not know why they are sitting in front of their computer or laptop. They sit, they sit and they sit for hours. But are they workaholics ? No, definitely not. Workaholics are those who does absolute hard work but without any limitation. people who are unable to replace the hard work with smart work, and therefore slog for hours also come under this category. It’s unbelievable when we hear that one third of Canadians accept that they are workaholics .. but it’s true ! so what if someone is so glued to their work? it’s a problem.. causing hypertension, blood pressure and diabetes etc. Not only that, the increased pressure on you has a very negative passive impact on people around as well.
What do we do to get out of this. Simplest way is to try and find if there are any smart ways to do the same job in less time. But that doesn’t suffice ! When you are left with enough time in hand because of these smart steps do not accept more work, but look for a new hobby. It could be anything.. To begin with, pick up something relating to your work. so that slowly you can adapt more versatile things to do. If you are a software professional, pick up a habit of social networking about few topics of your platform. This will get you in contact with varieties of people and eventually you may start meeting more people and spend quality time with them, instead of just sitting and working.
** If someone is saying ” OMG you work so much !!” DO NOT take it as a compliment. You never know probably this is high time that you will need to work on some strategy to reduce working hours , in order to avoid being a workaholic.
