How To Pursue The Modern Washroom Makeover?

Most modern cities have been burdened by overpopulation with the rise of various industries and work opportunities. The rapid urbanization that has come with this influx of people has robbed major cities of large, open living spaces. In order to accommodate all the new people and a large number of people who have started living in these cities, most old houses and buildings have been brought down to give way for construction of newer high rise apartment buildings that can accommodate a large number of people in flats and apartments. Although more people can live in such buildings and apartments, it results in smaller living spaces. Gone are the days of large sprawling houses, people have to make do with small flats with only one or two bedrooms and a single kitchen, dining area and bathroom to share.

In spite of such cramped up living conditions, the desire of people to live in luxury and make their homes feel like a well decorated mansion have not died off. People are preferring to decorate their houses in whichever way possible, and are finding new and innovative ideas to give their bedrooms or kitchens a makeover, all within a budget.

Giving your Washroom a new look

Although people spend ample time decorating their bedrooms and kitchens and spend tons of money buying little trinkets and other accessories to give their bedrooms or dining areas a fresh makeover, one area of the house that often ends up getting neglected is the washroom or the bathroom. It is an indispensable and essential part of every household, and in fact the true cleanliness of a house can be determined by the amount of cleaning that gets done to the washrooms. A guest’s perspective about their hosts manners and cleanliness gets a rigorous test if the guest finds the washroom to be in an unclean and untidy state. Although basic cleanliness and hygiene is a must, one can go a step farther and give their washroom completely new do-over with a few simple tips and tricks as mentioned below.

1)  Changing your shower curtain

Starting off with something simple yet effective, the cheapest thing to do to give your washroom an instant new look is to install a new shower curtain. A shower curtain generally acts as a barrier between the shower area and the rest of the bathroom, providing some privacy and also preventing against unnecessary spilling of water onto the floor of the washroom or onto other dry surfaces. Except for this obvious useful utility, shower curtains can also act as a decorative piece. Many home decor stores or upholstery stores sell shower curtains with unique prints and textures, that can turn your washroom into a completely different feature within minutes. It is cheap, and super easy to install, just slip the shower curtain on to the rod, or install a new rod if you don’t already have a shower curtain, and stand back and admire the new piece of decoration in your washroom, that also serves a purpose. You can choose between a wide variety of colors, textures and prints to match with the rest of your bathroom.

2) Putting up fake trees as decorations

Washrooms can be a hard place to decorate, because it is unwise to keep expensive artwork or sculpture or decorative items in here, since the area always gets wet and may damage your precious decorations easily. One of the few decorations that do enjoy the humid environment are indoor plants, but they can be very hard to maintain and clean, and may end up doing more harm than good. The best alternative to this dilemma is to use an artificial tree. The advantage of these artificial trees over actual potted plants is that they require very little to almost no regular maintenance, and yet they give the same look and feel of indoor potted plants. They can also serve a magnitude of purposes, and can be used in various other ways than simple decoration. For example, an artificial plant wall, which consists of fake creepers and climbing trees and branches arranged on wire mesh network or a simple frame of sorts, can act as a good partition between the shower area and the toilet area, in place of a traditional shower curtain. Also, a fake tree stump can be very easily used as a small tool or a makeshift rack to serve various miscellaneous purposes inside the washroom, as and when required. The possibilities are almost endless, and it comes with the big benefit of being cheap, easy to clean and maintain without causing any unnecessary mess.

3) Installing new tiles

It is virtually impossible to completely change the plumbing and all the faucets and fixtures of a washroom including toilets and bathtubs without causing a huge mess and incurring a large bill from the plumber. But, the floor and wall tiles are much easier to replace and help in giving a complete overhaul to your washroom. It can even be done with very little professional help and thus saves up on costs too.

The patterns and designs and colors of the tiles should match the color of the faucets and fixtures, or to give a more modern look, a contrasting solid color can be chosen to give a new look to your washroom. The common idea is to stick to neutral colors and standard geometric patterns, and although that creates for a very minimalist modern decor, with the huge range of colors, designs and textures available in tiles nowadays, one can give a very unique and interesting look to their washroom without spending a fortune on custom fittings and fixtures. Changing tiles may also be a good opportunity to install anti-slipping or textured tiles that also serve a very useful purpose of preventing slipping on falling on wet floor surfaces, and thus saves from deadly injuries, especially for the children and elderly people of the house.

Nurturing Your Outer Shell: 5 Cosmetic Treatments Every Woman’s Face Can Benefit From

Photo by Andreas Fidler on Unsplash

Human faces are one of the most important parts of our anatomy. Our face is how we connect with other people, it’s how we present ourselves to the world, and it’s who we are; our true identities.

That being said, there seems to be a constant striving where we want to be the best person we want to be, which means we are looking for the best ways to improve our face. Getting the face we want can help boost our self-confidence and our self-esteem, as well as helping us live the lives we want to live.

Today, we’re going to explore five of the best cosmetic treatments every woman can benefit from, regardless of what you’re looking for.

#1 – Crows Feet

Whether you’re using a series of creams or having a Botox operation can help to remove crow’s feet. These are a tell-tale sign of aging, and they normally appear around the eyes when you’re laughing or smiling.

Removing, or at least softening these lines are a great way to achieve a younger appearance and can help you feel more confident as you go about your everyday life.

#2 – Frown Lines

Frown lines are found on the forehead and usually consists of two deep trenches that go from side to side. These lines can develop from all number of things from stress to sun damage and contribute to an aged look.

To reduce frown lines, you can receive a cosmetic treatment, use creams and ointments, as well as being mindful of how much tension you have in your face throughout your day.

 #3 – Sagging Skin

This is, perhaps, one of the most common forms of aging, especially around the face. This can happen anywhere from under the eyes, cheeks, chin, and forehead. This occurs naturally with age but can also be the result of stress and sun damage.

To tighten your skin, you can receive a cosmetic treatment that basically pins the skin backward, or receives injections to plump up the skin, so it has more structure.

 #4 – Nose Shaping

The nose is such a prominent feature on the face, and a crook, a bent or an abnormal can have such a dramatic effect on the way your face looks. Typically, any kind of nose shaping will need to be carried out using cosmetic surgery.

Thanks to modern technology, you can have the entire shape of your nose reshaped, the size can be changed, or you may have the operation under certain medical circumstances.

 #5 – Sun Damage

Sun damage is one of the biggest problems that affect the skin, especially around your face because it’s directly impacted at all hours of the day. Of course, you should do what you can, such as wearing a hat and applying sunscreen to negate these effects.

However, if your skin is damaged from the effects of the sun, there are plenty of treatments, creams, and cosmetic operations out there that can help you reverse the effects.

 Summary

There are plenty of things out there you can do to improve the health and well-being of your face. The benefits of any of these treatments are so clear when it comes to confidence and happiness in your own skin, so it’s well worth researching what’s out there for you.

Freelancer? Find Out How to Add More Stability to Your Family Finances

If you are working freelance and don’t have a regular set amount of income, balancing the books might be challenging for you. There are some things that you can’t control each month, such as your income, but you can always shop around and wait for larger purchases to make sure that you can afford them without getting into debt. Below you will find a few tips on managing your freelance budget better with a family.

Have Long Term Plans

Most people working as a freelancer tend to live from one month to the next. You will need to focus on your long term financial plans and change your attitude towards money. Whether you would like to save up for a family holiday, save up enough for a deposit or moving house, you have to create a bucket list of things to do with clear deadlines, so you can do things in your business that will help you achieve them.

Stay Flexible

One of the things you need when trying to manage your freelance family finances is flexibility. Not all the bills will be paid on time, and you might have to face delays when dealing with project work. This means that you need to have a flexible budget and allocate money for paying your bills first. If you have funds left over for a weekend away or a day out, you should plan this at the end of the month, but if there isn’t enough, save it up and add it to next month’s budget and plan something bigger,

Save for Holidays and Larger Purchases

As a freelancer, you will need to make sure that you are not stretching too far, as your income for next month is not guaranteed. This means that you have to allocate excess money for larger purchases every month. Have a minimum saving plan to stick to, but if you have a particularly good month, put more toward the savings to have a rainy day fund.

Protect Your Finances

One of the things people forget when starting to work freelance is protecting their finances. It is crucial that you have an income protection for falling ill, as you are likely to lose your source of salary for a while. At the same time, you should ensure that the future of your family is safe, and get in touch with estate planning companies like Fielding Triggs to save money on wills and asset protection.  

Ensure You Get Paid

One of the uncertainties of working as a freelancer is when and whether or not you will get paid. You can eliminate the risks by consulting with a legal company and making your contracts legally unquestionable. Even if you are a freelancer, you will need to get paid for the work you do.

Managing your finances as a freelancer might be challenging. Make sure that you have a detailed financial plan and a rainy day fund, so you can look after your family and your financial future.

Not confident with a paint brush? 5 simple ways to add colour to your bedroom

From dull décor to boring beds, our bedrooms can look drab pretty quickly. Clothes on the floor,
tired old bedding, dust, scratched and scuffed walls, the list goes on. If you wanted to give your
bedroom décor a bit of a boost, you could try injecting a little colour here and there. But if you’re
not confident with a paintbrush, then the idea of stripping walls and making it look professional can seem a little daunting.

Even if you’ve recently had a decorator do all the hard work for you and you’ve even had new
skirting boards installed – check out the skirtings r us website for more information – if your room is lacking personality then it can leave you feeling a bit deflated.

But don’t worry! Did you know there are ways you can add colour without picking up a paintbrush? Read on for 5 simple ways to achieve a pop of colour.

Big colourful art

If you live in rented accommodation and painting just isn’t permitted, then hanging a piece of big, colourful art will certainly draw attention for all the right reasons. Not only can you select something that’s big and bold but also something that reflects your personality and really puts a stamp on the property without risking your deposit.

Pillows and throws

With the colder weather now upon us, we’re looking for ways to make our bedrooms extra cosy and comfortable and there’s no easier way than treating yourself to a new pillow, cushion and throw – or three! Choosing vibrant, even clashing colours will really give your room a “pop” effect as well as providing the perfect place to hibernate and binge on all those TV box sets.

Colourful curtains and beautiful blinds

Introducing a set of curtains to any room, makes it look “finished”. They’ll add an extra layer of style and comfort to your bedroom too, so they’re definitely worth investing in. They also serve as an easy way of introducing colour, particularly if the current colours of your room are muted. If you wanted something really eye catching then you could hang two different colours! If you prefer blinds, then you’re in luck – any good blind stockist will have something to suit your colourful tastes and budget.

A rug

Who says you should neglect the floor? Dragging yourself out of bed most mornings will be a little better if the first thing your feet land on is a thick, soft rug. You can buy these in a range of colours, styles and textures so you can really get something that compliments your style.

Upscale your hardware and accessories

This might sound a lot harder than it is! By hardware, I mean things like door handles, the knobs on your wardrobe or bedside table – all these things can be replaced with something bright and vibrant. They’re simple to install and don’t even have to be permanent; you can swap them back again if your taste changes.

Five life skills your kids don’t learn at school

Five life skills your kids don’t learn at schoolThere is no “right” way to bring up children, and sometimes the more advice and opinions you hear, the tougher it can seem. Even the views of the greatest teachers and psychologists always differ to a certain extent.

Still, there is one thing on which everyone is in broad agreement: if you give your children freedom and value their individuality, they will grow up confident and happy. Another basic truth is that parents have as important a role in educating their kids as schoolteachers. With that in mind, here are five lessons that will be of value to every child, which you can help them to learn:

Independence

Before doing something for your children, step back and ask yourself whether they can do it themselves. Everyone needs freedom, but keep in mind that freedom and permissiveness are not the same thing. Let them try to do their own shoelaces, for example. Encourage, guide and most of all be patient. They will get there in the end.

Housework 

Here’s a secret: Kids love to help out with things. The only reason they get lazy and reluctant is through habit if you don’t let them get in on the act from a young age. The sooner children learn to perform ordinary household chores, the more confident and self-sufficient they will be in future. Aside from that, it’s always nice to have an additional pair of hands to help with cleaning or washing up, and it’s a great time to chat without the intrusion of a TV screen or games console.

Of course, kids don’t become skilled in domestic chores overnight, and role play games are highly valuable here. Those toy kitchens and toolkits are the perfect start, and you will see how much they love preparing pretend meals or repairing their toy cars.

Choosing and analysing

Your children will ultimately live their own lives, not the ones that you or the teachers in school have in mind. Where you can make a difference is to coach them on how to make wise decisions. Provide your child with the opportunity to choose as often as possible. For example, what to wear or what colour backpack to buy.

Beyond that, get the kids involved in broader family decisions, so that they can see how to research options and make the right choice. Whether it’s booking a family holiday or choosing the right printer cartridge, there is research to be done. Using the latter example as a case in point, show them the price of cartridges on the high street, then search online for Canon MG5750 and decide which is better!

Outdoor activities

Children need to spend time in the wide world. This is where they learn to observe, see the beauty of nature and live in harmony with the world. That doesn’t mean throwing them out in the morning and hoping they come back in the evening, as some generations maintain they spent their childhoods. In truth, it’s a great opportunity for us, as parents to spend more time outside too, not to interfere, but just to be around.

What Was Your Favourite Part of the Playground Growing Up?

Remember running out to the playground at break time after lessons, or a walk down the park, as a youngster and getting all excited because your favourite spot was free? For some, it is the slide, while others immediately run over to the bars.

Not all playgrounds are created equally, with some encouraging more play than others. Yes, you may have loved playing hopscotch, but did anything really capture the imagination like an all-singing-all-dancing structure filled with endless possibilities?

It probably depends on what type of child you were. Here, we take a look at some of our favourite parts of any playground.

Slide

What young child didn’t love the slide? Of course, some slides were better than others – there was nothing worse than getting stuck halfway down the slide, only for the next child to dislodge you on their way down. The best slides were, of course, the slides that had a spiralled design, rather than a straight slope down.

You might also remember the unfortunate discovery of a landing pad that wasn’t quite padded enough in parks that hadn’t been maintained as well as they should be. It was all good fun, though, wasn’t it?

Seesaw

The seesaw could be a lot of fun, as long as you had someone to actually go on it with. If you were something of a loner, the seesaw only served to compound your loneliness. But it was okay, because you could make friends on the playground and jump on the seesaw with them – after all, you are in a social setting.

This was a very simple piece of equipment that would keep us entertained for a long time. Of course, if you would get a little overzealous, your parents would get a little twitchy, but that was what the rubber matting was for.

Field

Is the surrounding field technically part of the playground? At school, everyone would be excited when they could play football on the grass, so for that reason we are saying yes. When we were at school, the grass field was used almost exclusively for sport, especially football.

Do you remember sliding around in your new school trousers and seeing your mum’s face drop when you returned home? Now we know how mum felt because, as any parent will tell you, grass stains aren’t fun to get out of clothes. Especially whites…

Rocker

Going back to those that loved to play on the seesaw, anyone that couldn’t find a friend to participate with them could jump on the rocker. This is a one-man seesaw, if you will, where the child can swing backwards and forwards or side to side to their heart’s content.

The best part of the rocker was that you were not reliant on another’s momentum (or lack thereof) and could go as fast or as slow as you wanted. The simple things always made for the best park equipment when we were young.

Swing

A staple of the playground, the swing was the reason for many a bump and graze when you fell off. You would always hear fables of how one kid managed to swing all the way over the bar (almost always when no one else was present, funnily enough) and foolishly try to replicate the feat yourself. It would never end well, or you would chicken out at the point your body would become inverted.

Looking back with an adult’s perspective, playground’s seem such a simple concept but, through the eyes of a child, they really do represent a world of opportunity.

Making Sure Your Lawn Stays Lush

Lawn-envy is a terrible thing, especially if you have vast expanses of flat, emerald green on either side of your browned, pitted and sparse wasteland… There’s no need to despair, though, as you can transform your tatty patch of land into an even, lush green carpet if you make the effort.

It starts with the soil

You can’t expect luxuriant green grass to grow out of nothing, so it’s important that you tend to the soil before you order your seeds from The Grass People. Using the right fertiliser is vital – if it’s later in the year then you need a fertiliser with phosphates in to provide long-term nutrition over the winter.

Make a schedule

This can be as simple as putting notes on a wall calendar or using a gardening app on your smartphone to remind you to buy the right type of fertiliser for the right season.

When it comes to fertilisers, there are two phases. Autumn and winter is for potassium and phosphate mixes, which strengthen the grass and help it to cope with the cold temperatures over winter. These mixes need to go down in October, November and December.

Once it’s spring, then it’s nitrogen time! Nitrogen mixes get used up faster, so you’ll need to apply them every six weeks from March through to August.

It’s important to control weeds and moss

Weeds and moss rob your grass of the vital nutrition it needs to grow healthily. Therefore, they must be eliminated! It’s a good job, then, that you can buy treatments that feed your grass and kill off weeds and moss at the same time. September is the best time to lay this treatment on your lawn because the weeds and mosses are still active so they’ll absorb the compounds.

Get the hose out

The UK doesn’t really droughts, so there’s no need for a built-in sprinkler system. However, you do need a decent hose that can reach all the parts of your lawn and you also need to know which soil type you have. Sandy soil doesn’t retain water so well, so it’s more prone to drying out. Clay or loamy soil holds onto water a bit better, so you can water less frequently.

If you tend to water your lawn a little bit every day, then you should stop doing this. If you water frequently, the grass roots only ever need to “look” for water near the soil surface. Leaving it a few days for the water to sink down further without adding more encourages the roots to travel deeper down in search of moisture and nutrients. This makes the roots stronger and in the long-term helps the roots to access more nutrients.

Do some over-seeding to fill in bare spots

If your lawn is plagued by bare patches where grass just doesn’t seem to thrive, then try some over-seeding. This is sprinkling extra seeds in the area so that it gets a few more blades in the end. Be careful, though, because using too many seeds will back-fire as the seeds will be competing for an insufficient amount of food and none will grow properly.

Christmas Preparation

Christmas PreparationChristmas seems to come around earlier and earlier each year. There’s the long school term; a drag which seems to take forever, and when (mercifully) the summer holidays roll around, they seem to come and go in a flash and before you know it you’re faced with the onslaught of the silly season.

For many, what is supposed to be a joyous time surrounded by family and friends, becomes a stressful, unenjoyable holiday that feels like more hard work than the rest of the year. Thankfully you can take the edge off with some canny planning and a fresh outlook, and these are our favourite ways to take the stress out of your Christmas.

Budget (and stick to it)

Money is perhaps the biggest source of stress for families during the Christmas period. Gifts, food, drink, decorations, evenings out; the list is endless. Take the money worries away and you’re already 9/10 of the way towards an enjoyable yuletide season.

By writing yourself a strict budget you can work out how much you have to spend on each necessity and take away much of the indecision that comes with your Christmas shopping by sticking to your budget 100%. No compromising.

Write down all of your expenses, allot each one an amount and lock it down! If it isn’t on your list, kick in into touch.

The internet is your friend

Ordering gifts online is a huge time and money saver but many people forget that you can actually order much of your consumable Christmas wares online too. There are some excellent online butchers who can send you your meats and if you buy alcohol online you’ll likely save a fortune on supermarket prices. Once those boxes arrive with your gin,  turkey and other tasty treats, you’ll feel the relaxation descend. Guaranteed.

Be prepared to say goodbye to the Christmas rituals

Most families have things that they always do at Christmas time, whether it’s hauling themselves through the crowds to the local panto or making sure they watch their favourite Christmas films in the right order, but you don’t have to do the same things you do year on year. Krampus won’t sneak up on you in the middle of the night if you forego It’s a Wonderful Life and spend some time other things you enjoy. When things that are supposed to be fun become a chore, it’s time to cut them loose.

Your house, your rules

If you’re catering for friends and family over the Christmas period, you’re going to want to make them feel comfortable and well looked after, but all too often the hostess (or host) feels like they have to make a raft of changes just to sate their guests, and many of us have guests who are quite happy to be vocal about what they’d do, were they you. Here’s the thing though: they aren’t you. Your home shouldn’t be somewhere where you feel frozen out at the expense of others who are only around for the day – and drawing a firm line will let everyone know where they stand.

The emergency present

This isn’t a new one by any means, but budget for (and buy) an auxiliary gift that will suit anyone – chocolates, champagne, a diary or planner – and wrap it up, just in case you’re faced with an unexpected plus one or someone else that you might have overlooked. Just knowing that you have an emergency gift tucked away will allow you to relax that little bit more.

If your family is packed with kids, maybe include a child-friendly option, too.

Embrace your daily rituals

While we think it’s important to be flexible about saying ta-ra to your Christmas rituals, we think it’s integral that you maintain the things that make you tick day-on-day. If you go for a run every morning, take a bath before bed or enjoy a few pages of your book after lunch, make time for these things during Christmas. You’ll find it easier to keep your head in the game if your simple pleasures are there for you.

Remember Christmas is for you too

We all get caught up in process of making sure our loved ones get the presents they want and our guests are fed their favourite foods and everyone is happy and content – but you must remember that applies to you as well. When you’re doing your online booze shop, throw in that nice bottle of fizz you’ve been denying yourself all year, or treat yourself to some new clothes, so that you can feel on the top of your game come Christmas day. You’ll feel better for it and maybe (maybe) when next Christmas rolls around, you won’t dread it quite so much.

How a Dishwasher Changed My Life

Photo by Scott Umstattd on UnsplashPhoto by Scott Umstattd on Unsplash

When we moved here, to our little house in the countryside, I had to accept a few things in order to get the lifestyle we wanted. Firstly, I would have to do a fair bit of driving to get the girls to school. Nights out would either need to be very sober or cost a lot more if we factored in taxis. We’d have to accept that our internet went about the same speed as dial-up, circa 1997. And, perhaps most horrifyingly of all, I would have to accept that there wasn’t space in our kitchen for a dishwasher.

I’d never had a dishwasher until we lived in the house before this one, and getting one at the last house felt like all of my dreams had come true at once. You see, I’m not naturally domesticated, and the washing up was my BIGGEST nemesis. I absolutely hate washing up. And so does everyone else who lives here, so it would often go undone for days at a time, which as you can imagine, is a less than ideal situation.

I won’t lie, I had a bit of a meltdown at Husband and told him that something needed to change, so he put his thinking cap in action (as well as chucking a bit of cash at the situation!) and worked out that we could have a dishwasher if we did a bit of shuffling around in the kitchen.

We’re seriously lucky that we have some super handy and practical people in our family, so after a call to Husband’s aunty (although you could just hire a plumber) we worked out that we could put the dishwasher where our washing machine currently stood and do a bit of a retrofit with the pipes to move the washing machine along a different wall altogether.

We have a galley kitchen, so it wasn’t immediately obvious that we’d be able to do this, but sometimes it takes a new pair of eyes, and someone with a bit more expertise than yourself, to come up with this sort of solution.

Husband’s aunt and uncle ordered all of the parts they’d need and came round one evening a few months ago to get it all done. It only took them two or three hours, and by the time they finished, we had a shiny new dishwasher, ready to go, and a washing machine that actually worked MUCH better in its new position because the floor was more level and it was closer to the dryer, too.

It sounds dramatic when I say it’s changed my life, but I cannot understate this fact enough. Instead of permanently living in limbo between “don’t use the kitchen, I’ve just spent hours cleaning it” and “we’ve got no clean plates, we’ll have to have a takeaway”, the kitchen is permanently clean and tidy and we ALWAYS have things to eat and drink with.

This has also had other knock-on effects too – we eat far fewer takeaways, so we’re saving money and being healthier, both of which are really positive. It also means that the rest of the house is tidier, because there’s a place for all of the dirty plates, cups and cutlery to go. I also enjoy cooking SO much more now. Before, I’d cook a roast or bake a cake and then be faced with the reality that I had to hand wash every single item I’d used in the process. Now, it all goes straight in the dishwasher, nothing is untidy, and I can just enjoy the whole experience of being creative in the kitchen.

If you don’t think you have space for a dishwasher in your kitchen, it could be well worth getting a plumber or kitchen designer to have a look and give you a professional opinion as to whether there might be a way, and if you’re as undomesticated as me, it could genuinely change your life!

5 Signs and Symptoms Of Alcohol Overuse

AlcoholAlcohol abuse has become the order of the day and many people are getting hooked up day after day by the addiction and it is quite hard as I can say. However how hard people try to hide it, it becomes quite impossible to hide it. There are some signs and symptoms that even the most ignorant people cannot get to ignore. It will be pretty good if I shared some of the top five signs and symptoms of alcohol overuse. However, despite the fact that a person shows these signs and symptoms, it is not enough for you to kick them out and just ignore them. As a matter of fact, it is important to take care of them and incorporate them into the world and the best way to do this is to to get a good rehab center for them where they will get help from therapists and from all the medical experts that they require. Help a brother to live a good life.

  1. Poor Speech

Just like any other drug, alcohol will mess with the speech function as it messes up with the body system. This is because alcohol is ingested to the blood very fast as it requires no digestion or anything more. This will mess with the brain system such as speech and a person will speak either very slowly or the words will be uncoordinated and make no sense.

  1. Potbelly

 Now, this is not the major sign but trust me it comes with the alcohol package. Alcohol adds nothing to the body and this means that it will just lay there in the stomach without use. The alcohol content will just fill up in the colon and it will lay there waiting to go through the liver and kidney and what it really does is just burn them up. This might explain why these guys are not able to hold their bladder for long.

  1. Impaired Judgment

Being a slave to alcohol is one of the worst slaveries there can be. It is in most cases where people lack the opportunity to visit rehab centers such as Ambrosia Treatment Center where they remain in slavery all their days. Ambrosia treatment center has the best-specialized treatment facility that is well equipped and the best part about them is that not only do they have the best staff but also it is located on an island. So much fun, right?

  1. Financial Strain

Financial strain is tied closely to alcoholism as it means that once you are an addict you will have to quench your thirst and this means keeping on refilling your liquor cabinet. Alcohol is quite addictive due to something that specialists will call the immediate feeling. What it makes you feel at the time is what that really captures you.

  1. Burnt Lips

Beers are not commonly known for this mishap but spirits will definitely do this. Have you ever seen people with lips that look so pinkish as though acid has been poured on them? Then next time you see that know that they are either on alcohol or it has been caused by a drug that they smoke. Most alcoholics so happen to be smokers, heavy smokers
