Chronic Drinking Increases ANXIETY Issues!
study from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) suggests
that heavy alcohol use rewires brain circuitry, and in doing so puts people at
greater risk for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Understanding the relationship between alcohol
and anxiety could offer new possibilities for developing drugs to help patients
with anxiety disorders who also have a history of heavy alcohol use. Heavy
alcohol use impacts the wiring of the brain in such a way, making it harder for
alcoholics to recover psychologically following a traumatic experience
University of North Carolina’s School of Medicine’s research shows that chronic
exposure to alcohol reduces The Thinking brain’s capacity to govern the Emotional
brain. Strong or traumatic feelings rule. Extreme anxiety, with all of its
potential devastation, results. Just another reason to heed Paul's advice: "Everything is permissible - but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible - but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, also the good of others."
- Pot use by minors causes irreversible harm to the brain. The persistent use of marijuana before the age of 18 has been shown to cause lasting harm to a person’s intelligence, attention and memory, according to an international research team. Studies show it causes an average decline in IQ of 8 points. Where marijuana use is not considered harmless for any age, it is specifically risky for younger people whose organizational skills are not yet fully developed. Did we mention... it's also illegal!

Recent research research confirms, "Laughter may really be - The Best Medicine!"
Studies from the Univ. of Oxford report: "When laughter is elicited, pain thresholds are significantly increased." It seems endorphins get released in the brain when we laugh.
At the Univ. of Maryland they determined laughter also helps prevent high blood pressure, and it can offset the negative impact of stress. One expert says 15 minutes of laughter daily is good for your vascular system.
Why should this surprise any of us. Proverbs 17.22 tells us, "A cheerful heart is a good medicine." And don't forget, Solomon tells us in Ecclesiastes, 'there is a time to LAUGH!'
- A poll released by the Pew Research Center in late 2010 found that 39 percent of American adults believe that marriage has become obsolete, a figure that has risen from 28 percent in 1979. Wow! Whaddayouthink?
