Causes of Anorexia

Have you ever felt afraid of gaining weight? If the answer is affirmative, just be careful. Sometimes wishing to have a perfect body can be dangerous. Desires like those could be the origin to a very well known disease called anorexia which is an eating disorder characterized by low body weight and fear of becoming fat. Even when anorexia is linked to a physical condition, the real causes of anorexia are related to an individual’s emotionality. The purpose of this essay is to discuss the main causes of anorexia which are worthless personal feelings, stressful events in life, and cultural influence of the country where the person is living.

The first cause of anorexia and, in my opinion, the most important is a worthless personal feeling. A person who has a low self-esteem usually feels useless and valueless, despite achievements in his life, and he doesn’t like the way he looks. These feelings cause the individual to feel rejection and an alleged pressure from the society. As a consequence, an anorexic person is always looking for the perfection.

The second and an important cause of Anorexia is the existence of stressful events in life. It is usually that you feel stressed and worried when you are working under pressure, or it is common that you suffer nervousness as a consequence of experience life changes. These situations begin to affect your schedule and you stop doing some vital activities to stay healthy. In the case of anorexia, a person begins to stop eating in the right times or even stop eating.

The third and final cause of anorexia is the cultural influence of the country where the person is living. It is very common that some societies consider that the ideal beauty is based in extreme thinness. Nowadays, this idea has caused thousands of women and men to go on starvation diets or use products that supposedly make them lose weight in few days. The use of these products is originated just by the idea of body perfection.

As you can see, the causes of anorexia which are worthless personal feelings, stressful events in life, and cultural influence of the country where the person is living, are situations that can look normal, but that can have deathly consequences.

It also causes family and legal problems, violence, changes of behavior, suicide, among others. Alcohol is very powerful and alters all your normal behaviors.

The third effects of alcoholism are economic. According to the National Institute and Drug Abuse, drug abuse and dependence cost an estimated $98 billion. Alcohol is not cheap. If you drink two or three times in a week, it could cost you about $1000 pesos or more a week! People do not think about the money and spend almost everything when they are drunk.

In conclusion, the effects of alcoholism which are physical, psychological, and economic can cause many problems that affect your life in all aspects.

The Effects of Standing your Girl Up for a Date

Dating is a very common practice among teenagers, but some of them don’t even know what to do or what not to do. This essay is directed to male teenagers that do not know what happens if you stand up your girlfriend on a date. The purpose is to discuss the three main effects of “standing up your girlfriend on a date.”

The first effect of standing up a girl is that she will be waiting for you at least 20 minutes. During this period of time she may start thinking why you did not appear. Depending on the girl, she will think of good reasons of why you did not appear, understand you, and forgive you. But most of the girls will go crazy and want to kill you slowly and painfully after the first 10 minutes of waiting for you.

The second main effect of standing up your girlfriend on a date would be that she may never talk to you again. This is maybe a very reasonable action after you stand her up; at least you should make a phone call to tell you are not going to be able to go. Sometimes even if you make a phone call, the girl may feel too offended to understand any reasons, and she may stop talking to you.



The most significant effect of standing up a girlfriend on a date is that she can have a bigger brother with very bad temper. In this case not only your possibilities of dating a girl again are in danger, but also your health. If by accident you stand up a girl on a date, explain to her why you could not go; that way at least she will be less angry. Be aware of this especially if she has a big brother. Many times getting stood up is such a big deal for the girl that she tells all her friends and family. If she has a bigger brother with bad temper, run because this can be the last time you stand up.

The effects of standing up a girl on a date as you can notice are very dangerous affecting your further possibilities of dating again, so you better avoid it. Every time you are thinking of dating someone, plan what you can to have a good date, and never stand up just because you want. Think a little bit of the consequences of standing up before you do it.
