Not the Smokey Eyes You're Looking For

I quit smoking when I found out I was going to be a dad. This was the catalyst that made me want to change my life for the better. After twenty years of trying different ways to quit, it was the thought of not being with her that helped me quit. I thought of my life, her life, without me in it. I want to be there for her every moment I can, for as long as I can. Roughly a month or so before I found out she was going to be in my life, I started working at an online contact lens retailer. It was here that I learned about contact lenses, the eye care industry, and overall eye health. I knew smoking was bad for my lungs, my heart, and my overall long-term well-being; and I guess it just never crossed my mind, but I also learned just how bad smoking was for my eyes. Not only do I want to be alive with my daughter in the long term, I also want to be able to see her grow and become the amazing woman I know she will be.

Working in the contact lens industry I've read a lot of horror stories about people who don't follow proper contact lens care directions and end up with gruesome results. Your eyes are the only organs that get their oxygen from their surroundings rather than from your body. When you smoke you pollute your environment and cause your eyes problems from the lack of oxygen. Every smoker has felt the sting of smoke in their eyes. When you wear contacts it compounds the inflammation, soreness, dry eyes and irritability. Plus when you smoke it not only leaves tar and nicotine on your fingers, but also on your contact lenses themselves causing a litany of issues which I will lay out below.

The CDC estimates the United States alone has roughly 480,000 deaths a year attributed to smoking. That's half a million people that die each year from a preventable habit! The health risks associated with smoking are well known and numerous: Lung cancer, emphysema, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, a reduction in my overall life expectancy are just several of the dozens of concerns detrimental to my long term liveliness. This number does not take into account those people who are still alive and suffering from the adverse effects of smoking. More than 16 million Americans are living with a disease caused by smoking. For every person who dies because of smoking another 30 live with a serious smoking related illness.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) starts as a loss of central vision and makes it harder to read or see fine details in things. Smoking increases the severity and triples the risk of this disease, which is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 65. There are two types of AMD, "dry" and "wet", with dry being the most common. Dry AMD causes fatty deposits to form in the back of the eye behind your retina, with vision getting worse slowly over time. Wet AMD causes tiny blood vessels to leak or break open, which in turn causes scar tissue to develop. Wet AMD is less common, but more quickly to produce harmful vision results.

Glaucoma is the gradual breakdown of the optic nerve cells that sends visual information to your brain. As the cells die, your vision slowly begins to deteriorate, usually starting with your peripheral vision. This is often not noticeable until a significant amount of nerve damage has occurred. Due to this, almost half the people who have glaucoma may not be aware they have it. There are two types of Glaucoma: Primary open-angle Glaucoma and acute angle closure Glaucoma. The former is the most common type, which by the time you are aware of it, can have already caused significant vision loss. The latter form of Glaucoma is less common, but can come on more rapidly due to increased pressure on the inside of the eye. Symptoms can include: eye pain, nausea, red eye, seeing colored rings around lights and blurry vision. Smoking can significantly increase the risk of developing open-angle Glaucoma, which can lead to blindness. Unfortunately, presently there is no cure for this horrible disease.

Smoking thins your blood, not allowing enough oxygen to flow to the parts of your body that need to breath; like your eyes. Smoking enhances your risks for developing diabetes and the potentially blinding complications that come with it; one of them being Diabetic Retinopathy. Diabetic Retinopathy causes tiny blood vessels in your eye to become blocked, leak or break down completely. When new blood vessels begin to grow they can cover your retina, which can cause extreme vision complications and even blindness. There are four stages of Diabetic Retinopathy: mild, moderate, severe non-proliferative Retinopathy and Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy; the last of which leads to permanent vision loss. People with all types of Diabetes are at risk for this additional complication. Roughly 40-45% of people with Diabetes have some stage of Diabetic Retinopathy, yet only half are even aware of it.

When you smoke it leaves a sticky brownish black residue on your fingers which you can wash off; imagine the gunk it is leaving on your eyes, this cannot be rinsed away. This gunk over time accelerates the erosion of the lens in your eye, which can lead to Cataracts. Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss in the United States, and smoking doubles your chances of getting them. Cataracts are a build-up of protein in the lens of the eye which causes cloudy or blurry vision. Generally cataracts take years to develop and can be undetectable in the early stages of growth. This is why cataracts for the most part start being noticeable in people age forty and older, although you can develop them when you are young or even be born with them. Symptoms may include double vision, cloudy, blurry vision, faded colors or a stark glare around light sources. Cataracts are estimated to affect roughly twenty million plus people in the United States over the age of forty; with this number set to double in the next twenty years. Strangely enough, out of this number, 61% of those affected by Cataracts are women. Cataracts can be classified by their location in the eye and length of time they have been present. There are a few types of cataracts: Subcapsular Cataracts develop in the back of the lens, Nuclear Cataracts develop in the center of the eye, and Cortical Cataracts form along the edges of the lens and point inward. The only solution to cure Cataracts is through surgery. This is an expensive and uncomfortable in and out procedure. Luckily for the majority of patients, the Cataracts don't return after they're removed. Only in about 10% of patients does a film begin to develop over the lens again. Beyond smoking and aging other causes of Cataracts can include: Excessive alcohol consumption, overt exposure to the sun and other UV rays, Diabetes, certain medications and injury to the eye itself.

Smoking ruins lives. Not only does it affect you, but the lives of those around you and the lives of those you love. I love my daughter more than I've ever loved anything else in my life. I want to live for her as long as I can, see her grow and see her experience life. I can't do that if smoking takes away my vision or worse yet my life. Whether it's your eyes, your lungs, your heart or any other part of your body; smoking is just not worth it.

Detox Diet Drinks – What Can They Do For You and What They Should Have in It

You may have been down this road before. You start on a strict, low calorie diet with a rigorous exercise program and still only manage to lose a few pounds. You may not have lost the pounds you had hoped simply because you failed to detox for 24 to 48 hours before starting your diet.

Once your system is overloaded with toxins, a result of an unhealthy diet in combination with other external pollutants, it might become much harder to shed excess pounds. There’s an increased chance of triggering other health ailments as well, including allergies, bloating, constipation, elevated cholesterol levels, insomnia, headaches, and even depression.

To give your body a healthy boost and the best beginning for your diet, begin with a brief detox diet. Besides fasting, that will also mean consuming only purified water and some detox diet beverages for a couple of days.

Where Can I Buy Detox Drinks?

There is an assortment of specially formulated detox drinks available at health food stores and through online retailers. Detox diet drinks cleanse the body by removing harmful toxins. By consuming these specially prepared drinks and excluding all meals for a 24-to 48-hour period, you will shed up to 7.5 pounds, and you’ll feel more energized and healthier to boot.

These carefully formulated detox diet drinks are pricier than other beverages, although costs vary. Before buying detox drinks for yourself, you may want to check out some customer-penned critiques of the different options available, just to familiarize yourself with which ones might work best, and are the best value, since the quality of some products may change.

Homemade Detox Diet Drinks

Not everyone is able to afford detox diet drinks since they can be pretty costly, but if you do some research you will discover a multitude of recipes for diet detox drinks that you will be able to whip up yourself with just a few ingredients and your juicer or food processor. This is probably the best option for everybody. Making fruit and vegetable juices from fresh ingredients at home is the supreme choice. Upon deciding what juicer model to work with go for one with a slow grinder to avoid oxygen to build up in the juice.

The good news is, you can make your own detox diet drinks with inexpensive ingredients. Common ingredients for your detox drinks include apples, bananas, yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, citrus juice, water, cayenne pepper, garlic, ginger, and maple syrup.

Remember, to be effective, the detox diet drinks you make at home must be consumed instead of food. They might not always be as tasty as you would like, so make sure to have a full glass of purified water nearby as a chaser.

7 Undisclosed Tips to Never Lose Your Bet

Yes, you’re reading it right, you can always become a Winner no matter how bad your winning rate is, what sports you bet on, or what bookmakers you join.

Are you saying, «It’s IMPOSSIBLE!!» ??

Ok, here is the reality…

You may end up with some really bad losing strike one day. Every tipster, even the professional ones have their own terrible day when every single bets they placed are going to the wrong side. However, surprisingly, they still manage to collect some profits at the end of the day.

Here are the 7 secrets that will open your horizon in sports betting:

1. Knowledge is power! Read the form statistics, past records, head to head, injury lists, team fixtures, psychological situation of the players or even tradition each team has. Analyse every single aspects of a team carefully before placing your bets and keep yourself updated with the latest news. That’s the key to successful betting.

2. Keep your winning… Once you hit your winning goal, cash them in! Do not be greedy! Withdraw your winnings before placing anymore bets is always a good idea. Enjoy your hard earned winnings! Don’t keep spending your winning money on subsequent bets just because it’s your luckiest day in your life. That will prevent you from losing some of them (if not ALL) back to the bookmakers.

3. Budgeting… A good money management is important. Set your daily, weekly, monthly or even yearly budget, which is maximum amount of money you are prepared to lose. Take control of your finances and that will make your loses will not become a big problem because you have budgeted them in advance.

4. Avoid Difficult Bet… Try to avoid such bets like «Man of the Match», «First Goal Scorer», «To Win Premier League», «Exact Scores», and some sort of things. You may say that the odds look really tempting, but, it’s almost impossible to grab a long-term winning with this kind of play.

5. Follow the game Closely… Most of bookmakers offer what we call «In Running» or «Live» bets. That means, you can place bets whilst a match is in progress. Use this feature to make your bet a «risk free» bet.

See this example: You placed a $100 bet at -1/4 for a Chelsea to win over Liverpool. During the game, the odds change drastically and now the odds become -1/4 for Liverpool. This means, something is happening on the pitch which gives Liverpool a greater chance to win. With In-running bets, you can place an opposite bet to back up Liverpool.

With this simple example, you can NOT lose (even though you will also not win big), but the important point is you manage to save your $100 for a better match with higher winning chance.

6. Search for the Hottie! This may lead a controversy for some of you, since looking for this ‘Hottie’ will make your betting life even more difficult. However, if you carefully follow your favourite sports or betting forum, you must be having an idea someone who currently has a fortune goddess walking around him.

7. Finally… Engage A WINNING SYSTEM. The last one is my most important secret to make money at sports betting, you need a good system. Without a proven betting system, all of above points will become less usable and that means you can not maximise your winning. This is whereBookie Buster is specializing in.

Soccer Betting – The "Asian Handicap"

A draw, or tied score, is a frequent outcome in soccer. In the 2008-2009 season, almost a quarter of all Premier League matches resulted in a draw. Because such an outcome is so common, traditional betting usually involves betting within the context of three different outcomes: a win for one team, a draw, or a win for the other team. The «Asian handicap» is a means of changing this by «handicapping» the underdog by a certain percentage, meaning that a draw becomes impossible.

Most handicaps are made at intervals of one half or one quarter, meaning that there has to be a winner since it is impossible to score a half or quarter goal. The purpose is to make the odds as close to 50-50 as possible and eliminating the draw as a possible outcome. Because the odds are almost half when a handicap is applied, the payout is usually even money, or very close to it.

The primary benefit is encouraging punters to bet on matches where there is a clear favorite. For example, if Manchester United (winner of the Premier League in the 2008-2009 season) were to play West Bromwich (the bottom team of the Premier League during the same season), few punters would be interested in betting. This is because Manchester United is a much better team and the odds are strongly in their favor.

However, if West Bromwich was given a handicap of +2.5, it would mean that they would be effectively starting with a lead of 2.5 goals. This means Manchester United would have to score three goals more than West Bromwich to be the winner as far as the bet is concerned. If West Bromwich scored one goal, then Manchester would have to score four to win. Handicapping obviously changes the odds significantly.

An interesting aspect of handicapping is the push. If an even number is used for the handicap, and the actual score plus the handicap equals a draw, then this is a push. For example, if in the example given above West Bromwich was given a handicap of 2 and failed to score any goals, and Manchester United only scored two goals, this would be a push. The result of a push is that all the punters receive their original wagers returned as there was no winner.

The «Asian Handicap» adds an additional element to soccer betting that can be both fun and profitable. This form of betting can be helpful for those punters that have a personal favorite that they intend to bet on, but are not confident that their favorite will win a particular match.
