I will never forget that moment when I discovered my strange addiction. Locking my door felt more comfortable. Sitting there, slowly dragging my fingertips through my scalp, searching for the perfect hair strand to pull out. The sensation it brought was nothing, but a simultaneous sense of relief. Unfortunately, dealing with trichotillomania since kindergarten till sophomore year was an emotionally painful obstacle. Envisioning the moments still scare me, but after my condition ended the pain never vanished. In that case, not only did outgrowing trichotillomania improve my life, it made me visualize the world differently.
Soda is made up of carbonated water, high-fructose corn syrup, aspartame, sodium benzoate, phosphoric or citric acid, and often caffeine, which are all ingredients that can affect behavior. A study in 2011 revealed that if a teen drank more than five cans of soda a week, he/she would most likely carry a weapon and act violently. Another study that was created by the same author demonstrated that soda was associated with a range of aggressive behaviors such as fighting, feeling sad, hopeless, to even being suicidal. One may argue that these events won’t happen because parents are controlling how much soda their child is drinking a day. However, not every parent controls how much soda their child is consuming. The child whose parents aren’t controlling how much soda they drink will act violently and negatively. As a result, negative behavior and different emotions can be the outcome of children drinking soda.
Nearly half of all Americans drink soda everyday. I personally am one of those people, even though I know these sugary drinks are extremely unhealthy. By a show of hands, how many of you drink at least one soft drink or even sugary drink a day? So, I see that I am not alone. Even though we know the health effects of soda, we still continue to consume them everyday. Why is this? Is it because the amount of sugar in these drinks is highly addicting? Is it because people we idolize are telling us and influencing us to go out and buy these drinks because they do? As we know, Beyonce is now a spokesperson for Pepsi, along with many other celebrities such as One Direction, Lebron James, and even Drew Brees. Do seeing these celebrities drinking Pepsi
I wake up from another one of my bad dreams and look over to see if Sodapop is still asleep. He’s gone. I decided to go see if Darry was home. He is gone too. I am completely alone and I just noticed that it is in the middle of the night. What’s going on? I decided to go back to bed and sleep. Maybe I’m just dreaming, Darry is always home in the middle of the night.
Life sucks...all of my friends don 't talk to me anymore. I might as well just kill myself. There 's no point in living if you don 't have friends. It 's not my fault! They are just selfish, idiotic and heinous. What am I saying...no wonder they 're not my friends anymore. I should have never done that, why did I do that?! What I did and said was very malevolent and bitter. I don 't even know why I 'm mad at my words and actions. I should be mad at what made me do it, drinking. I, the guy with amazing self-control and astounding morals, decided to drink. My friends were over at my house at the time. When I came back from the kitchen, they were in for a surprise. Drunk me... How did this make me lose all my friends? Well, drinking is a big

I, Roberta Hudson stayed at Irene and Roger Grays’ home in the last two weeks of october of 2009. Everyday Roger would come home, entering through the garage with two cans of beer and drink until he fell asleep. Irene went to work at the Viking (‘09) and was very upset and in pain from a bruised side and a knot on her head caused by Roger shoving her.
I see a few areas where I could make some small changes that would help improve my diet and help reduce my risk to a lifestyle disease.
At the time, I didn 't understand. I wanted to, but I couldn 't. I was too young, too naive, and too unsure of myself. My mother would just lay there on the couch, too tired to provide for me or treat me like her child. In my more adolescent stages, I was surrounded by people like my mother- itching for their next high, willing to do anything to achieve it. Addiction can be scary, especially for a child of eight or nine. I was constantly moved from school to school to school- sometimes, my mother just didn 't send me. She was too out of it to notice that I didn 't attend, and when my father called her to investigate she would give half-attempted excuses. So, considering the fact that my mother would sell anything of mine she could for that
It was January 2, 1983 and everything was just groovy in the 80’s world. It is my senior year in highschool and I’m still doing stupid things. Music has been changing and getting really popular these past few days. Michael Jackson, the little kid that sung in the Jackson 5, just came out with his sixth solo album called Thriller. Me personally, this is his best one yet. He has came a long ways since singing as a kid. He isn 't my type of music though. I 'm more into a rock genre. Def Leppard has some of the best songs right now. Their most famous and my favorite is Pour Some Sugar on Me. The girls these days are going crazy for them.
Did you ever notice how there are flavors like orange, cucumber, strawberry Kiwi and others, but there’s no cranberry? Imagine how much better Gatorade would be if it had this flavor! Adding this flavor would increase sales from the excitement of a new flavor to try! Especially from cranberry lovers like me. I love cranberry and I love Gatorade, I know I would love this new drink if you added it to your flavors.

Sodas or soft drinks are beverages that contain carbonated water usually with sugar and flavors. Some research has showed that nearly 1 in 5 Americans drink at least one can of soda per day. Soft drinks by an average person can be consumed up to three times a day. Although many people know the harm sodas can cause, they still decide to ignore the facts and drink soda. There are many reasons to why people drink sodas; one of the most common reasons is, because it tastes good. Sodas have a very good taste especially when a person has it with a meal. Another reason to why people have it is that, it is available everywhere, ranging from restaurants to supermarkets, to cafes and vending machines that are usually available in almost every building.
Is it bad not telling a person they will get a heart attack? Is it bad not warning anyone about deadly health problems? If so, why are we not doing this with sugary drinks? California’s senate passed a bill requiring labels warning the effects on drinking soda, due to having effects, which could become law. Warning labels should be on soda cans because drinking sugar is worse then eating it in food, and drinking sugary drinks have very harmful effects which can lead to many problems.
