Jerry and Molly and Sam
Growing up is a mandatory part of life and can be very overwhelming. There are situations and circumstances that can shape someone’s future and impact their life. These events can either be positive or negative. One event that has a negative impact on a person’s life is alcoholism. It changes the very essence of the family. The short story “Jerry and Molly and Sam” is about the main character Al and his family. The story reads as if the world is crashing down on Al with his personal and uncontrollable problems (Harrison 15). He is a severely depressed alcoholic (16). When his life starts spiraling out of control due to a turn of

Define alcohol abuse.
Alcohol abuse is when one drinks alcoholic beverages in excess, whether on individual occasions (binge drinking) or as a regular practice. It is said that almost any amount of alcohol use may be legally considered as “alcohol abuse”, although it does depend on the local laws.

Binge drinking is a seriously dangerous habit or practice of consuming large amounts of alcoholic beverages in a single setting. A person that practices binge drinking is at risk of causing serious harm, including alcohol poisoning.

Social-learning theorists have been especially active in alcoholism, where they have analyzed how alcoholics' expectations and beliefs about what alcohol will do for them influence the rewards and behaviors associated with drinking (Marlatt 1978; Wilson 1981). Yet it has also been social-learning theorists who have launched the alcohol-dependence syndrome and who seem to feel subjective interpretation is far less important than the pharmacological effects of alcohol in causing drinking

pushing to stop underage drinking. Awareness is being publicized in many ways. Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) are exposing driving drunk reports to bring more awareness to everyone from different ages, and hopefully reduce drunk driving and change the drinking age (Denise Dubyk, 2011). Nonetheless, the media and some activist groups, government agencies and foundations constantly promote the idea that most teen drinking is extremely risky and carries a high probability of causing alcoholism or death. Either way, the fact that the vast majority of youth are drinking regularly long before it is legal to do so suggests that current policy is a failure at its intended goal of keeping alcohol out of the hands of most of young people (Larry Hemelin, 2009).

There are several reasons why and what substances like alcohol is used for. Some use it to commemorate a special occasion or a special moment. Some individuals may use it to relieve themselves when they are feeling weighed down. Individuals tend to use alcohol in different situations. They could drink while alone, around others, or in a social environment. When an individual faces everyday challenges in their daily life it could cause alcohol use to become a problem. A person will tend to become dependent on alcohol when having increasing issues with their emotional and physical health.

They did not judge you, they spoke of their pass experience and how God helped them through the tragic times and people were open and honest and everyone accepted everyone with open arms. I liked that church better because it gave the people the feeling regardless of your past experiences such as alcoholism, drug abuse or any other problems that you will be accepted in the church. I was very blessed growing up in a church like that because it taught me that my sins can be forgiven.

drugs. “If the cycle continues with regular daily alcohol or drug intake, the body can become physically dependent and alcoholism or drug addiction is the result”. (Watson, 2005) Alcohol and other drugs such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates share the same tolerance and dependence; therefore their pharmacological actions are the same. Tolerance to alcohol involves GABA receptors which are involved in the sedative and intoxicating effects of alcohol. “There is a decrease in GABA-mediated inhibition in the brain. Recent studies suggest that alterations in the function of the GABAA receptor chloride channels also contribute to the signs and symptoms of the ethanol withdrawal syndrome

But a second explanation seems more plausible -- that people working full-time jobs in real-world settings are almost certainly going to be under greater stress and experience more negative outcomes than those who work in the relatively safe confines of an in-agency sheltered workshop. Put more succinctly, the lesson here might very well be that work is hard. Sheltered workshops are generally very nurturing work environments where virtually all employees share similar illness histories and where expectations about productivity are relatively low

Moreover, the current social, economic and cultural factors also contribute to the negative impact of alcohol due to the high level of unemployment, and undeveloped basic support systems, thus predisposing most people to alcohol abuse.
In addition, genetic risk factors also contribute to the above problems. Among males, genetic factors account for 50-60 percent of risk for alcoholism as compared to their female counter parts.

The meaning of “health promotion” has been defined as helping people to change their lifestyles and enable them to move toward a state of optimal health. In a paper written by the U.S. Public Health Service in 1980, health promotion was set forth as a process that would advocate health and will likely enhance personal (individual, family and community), private (professional and business) and public government(local, state, and federal). The goal is that through support of positive health practices, a societal norm will evolve (Edelman & Mandle, 2009).

There is a widespread deficiency in the basic elements of Christian character, ethics and morality. Domestic violence, drug abuse, alcoholism, sexual immorality and promiscuity are commonly found within the churchgoing populace. It is also witnessed that, today's pulpits are virtually silent on the issue of "sin." The church has become more and more like the world (Scott, 2014, p. 21). It has sought to be popular and acceptable to society, and in doing so, it has compromised its standards of morality and holiness.

I. Dating Industry history
The dating industry formed in the 1600s when the first services to help singles found spouses arose. At the time, being unmarried past the age of 21 was shameful causing some to turn towards matrimonial agencies to help them find a mate. The services utilized print ads typically on behalf of men who paid the agency to recruit them a wife. With the invention of the modern newspaper close to 1700 the print ad medium for finding a spouse began to gain popularity. Companies profited from posting a column in exchange for a fee.
