Alcoholism and drug addiction affects thousands of people from every corner of the world and is a life threatening illness if the person suffering from this does not find recovery. There has been much written on this subject, and there are many differing opinions about recovery. I have no qualifications in addiction, and I am not a doctor, but I have personal experience when it comes to Alcoholism and finding recovery.
So, what are the signs of an alcoholic, there are many, and usually the Alcoholic knows he or she has a problem but refuses to accept it, denial sets in and justification for drinking continues. When Alcoholic drinks usually he cannot stop, even if he want to stop he can not and will end up drunk this is just one of the signs of an alcoholic. Most people when they drink enjoy the taste and the social interaction that goes with it. However, if the person has alcoholic tendencies, he will become unsociable and will usually end up in some trouble, either with his family, friends or the police.
Many alcoholics will justify there drinking, I know from experience that I would say “I deserve a drink I have been at work all day”, problem here is most alcoholics with saying that Monday to Friday and drink every day of the week, so you can see the signs of an alcoholic are there for everybody to see, and usually other people can see the signs except the person suffering from the addiction.
Signs of an alcoholic
Drinking every day, this does not have to be morning drinking, a person who drink every day usually but not always has some dependency.
When drinking the person has a complete change of character and can often become verbally or physically violent
Sweating and shaking when they wake up after sleep. They will usually look for another drink to steady their nerves.
Total lack interest in anything other than alcohol
Hiding drink in the house or even in the shed or garden
Getting into trouble with the police resulting is court appearances
If they are unable to get drink they can become very moody and bad tempered
These are just a few of the signs of an alcoholic, and if you see these, then the person you are worried about will probably need help. One thing we must remember is that recovery is possible no matter how far the person has gone, the signs of an alcoholic are not always this obvious as they can be very secretive and hide the amount of alcohol they are taking but a partner will usually know they have a problem.
The process to recast the nose through surgery is known as Rhinoplasty. It is advised to select an efficient and skilled nose plastic surgeon for doing this surgery. There are chances of a nose plastic surgeon to reject a surgery on youths below 14-15 years of age because a nose plastic surgeon does not intervene between the youths and guardians on their emotional and communal sentiments.
Now that you have decided to undergo cosmetic surgery to correct that flaw on your nose, you have to choose the right cosmetic surgeon for the job. With your nose being the center of attraction on your face, you have to ensure you get the right surgeon to do your nose job for you.
The following are tips on how to choose the right surgeon for your nose job
Make sure that the surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery by checking their website or calling them toll-free.
The surgeon should have and use a valid surgeon’s medical license. There are some sites on the internet that assemble medical license verification information from all fifty US states to help you here.
Most state websites have information on any disciplinary action taken by the cosmetic surgeon for malpractice judgments. If your state does not provide this information on its website, the clerks of courts where the doctor practices will be able to provide you with this information. Be careful of doctors with three malpractice judgments within a span of 5 to 10 years’ time.
You never know when things may go wrong during the nose job; so make sure your surgeon has current malpractice insurance coverage and hospital privileges in case you have to be admitted for hospital care.
Find out more about the surgeon’s training and education. You can either ask the surgeon personally or get it from the board.
Ask how many times the surgeon has performed nurse surgery, and his or her complication rates. Be careful of doctors who claim of never making complications during a nose job.
Always ask for references, and take a look at some before and after photos of nose jobs. If possible, talk to patients who have had a nose job done by the cosmetic surgeon. Even ask your family doctor about their opinion on the cosmetic surgeon.
Make sure your anesthesia will be given by a certified and registered nurse anesthetist or physician anesthesiologist.
Last but not least, check the accreditation of the surgical hospital you will be having your nose job done. You thus get an idea of the type of services and features you can expect from the hospital during your nose job.
