10 Quick Tips to Help You Quit Smoking

10 Quick Tips to Help You Quit Smoking

1 Comment
1. Believe in yourself. Believe that you can quit. Think about some of the most difficult things you have done in your life and  realize that you have the guts and determination to quit  smoking. It's up to you.

2. After reading this list, sit down and write your own list, customized to your personality and way of doing things. Create you own plan for quitting.

3. Write down why you want to quit (the benefits of quitting): live longer, feel better, for your family, save money, smell better, find a mate more easily, etc. You know what's bad about smoking and you know what you'll get by quitting. Put it on paper and read it daily.

4. Ask your family and friends to support your decision to quit. Ask them to be completely supportive and non-judgmental. Let them know ahead of time that you will probably be irritable and even irrational while you withdraw from your smoking habit.

5. Set a quit date. Decide what day you will extinguish your cigarettes forever. Write it down. Plan for it. Prepare your mind for the "first day of the rest of your life" You might even hold a small ceremony when you smoke you last cigarette, or on the morning of the quit date.

6. Talk with your doctor about quitting. Support and guidance from a physician is a proven way to better your chances to quit.

7. Begin an exercise program. Exercise is simply incompatible with smoking. Exercise relieves stress and helps your body recover from years of damage from cigarettes. If necessary, start slow, with a short walk once or twice per day. Build up to 30 to 40 minutes of rigorous activity, 3 or 4 times per week. Consult your physician before beginning any exercise program.

8. Do some deep breathing each day for 3 to 5 minutes. Breathe in through your nose very slowly, hold the breath for a few seconds, and exhale very slowly through your mouth. Try doing your breathing with your eyes closed and go to step 9.

9. Visualize your way to becoming a non-smoker. While doing your deep breathing in step 8, you can close your eyes and begin to imagine yourself as a non-smoker. See yourself enjoying your exercise in step 7. See yourself turning down a cigarette that someone offers you. See yourself throwing all your cigarettes away, and winning a gold medal for doing so. Develop your own creative visualizations. Visualization works.

10. Cut back on cigarettes gradually (if you cut back gradually, be sure to set a quit date on which you WILL quit). Ways to cut back gradually include: plan how many cigarettes you will smoke each day until your quit date, making the number you smoke smaller each day; buy only one pack at a time; change brands so
you don't enjoy smoking as much; give your cigarettes to someone else, so that you have to ask for them each time you want to smoke.

Smoking: what are the effects?

Add Comment

Effects of tobacco smoke
Tar in cigarettes coats the lungs and can cause lung and throat cancer in smokers. It is also responsible for the yellow–brown staining on smokers' fingers and teeth.

Carbon monoxide in cigarettes robs the muscles, brain and blood of oxygen, making the whole body — especially the heart — work harder. Over time this causes airways to narrow and blood pressure to rise, and can lead to heart attack and stroke. High levels of CO, together with nicotine, increase the risk of heart disease, hardening of the arteries and other circulatory problems. A first-time smoker will often feel dizzy and sick.

‘Light’ or ‘low tar’ cigarettes
Research has shown that there is little difference between the amount of chemicals inhaled by people who smoke ‘light’ or ‘low tar’ cigarettes and those who smoke regular cigarettes. People who smoke ‘light’ cigarettes have the same risk of developing smoking-related diseases as people who smoke regular cigarettes.

Immediate effects
Soon after smoking tobacco, the following effects may be experienced:

* initial stimulation, then reduction in brain and nervous system activity;
* enhanced alertness and concentration;
* mild euphoria;
* feelings of relaxation;
* increased blood pressure and heart rate;
* decreased blood flow to body extremities like the fingers and toes;
* dizziness, nausea, watery eyes and acid in the stomach; and
* decreased appetite, taste and smell.

Overdose
Although rare, it is possible to overdose on the nicotine in tobacco.

Very large doses of nicotine can result in an increase in the unpleasant effects, including feelings of faintness and confusion, and a rapid decrease in blood pressure and breathing rate.

In some cases, it can lead to convulsions and death from respiratory failure. 60 milligrams of nicotine taken orally can be fatal for an adult.

Long-term effects
It is estimated that more than 140,000 hospital episodes and 19,000 deaths in Australia can be attributed to tobacco use every year. The principal diagnoses are cancer, heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Passive smoking
Passive smoking can cause a number of health problems including heart disease, lung cancer and irritation of the eyes and nose. It involves breathing in tobacco smoke from other people's cigarettes: smoke that has been exhaled or smoke from the end of a lit cigarette.

50 Australians die every day from smoking, compared to 10 who die from alcohol-related conditions and 4 who die as a result of road accidents.

Tolerance and dependence
People who use tobacco tend to develop a tolerance to the effects of the nicotine in the tobacco very quickly. This means they need to smoke more and more in order to get the same effect.

With repeated use of tobacco, the risk of dependence on nicotine is high. Dependence on nicotine can be physiological, psychological or both.

People who are physically dependent on nicotine find their body has become used to functioning with the nicotine present and may experience withdrawal symptoms when they reduce their nicotine intake.

People who are psychologically dependent on nicotine may find they feel an urge to smoke when they are in specific surroundings, such as at the pub, or in particular situations such as during their lunch break or socialising with friends.

Research has shown that smoking is often associated with different roles and meanings for smokers, including the following.

*

Social roles, such as enjoyment of the company of friends, the drinking of coffee or alcohol, and promoting social confidence and feelings of independence (particularly for young women).
*

Emotional roles — caring for the self, such as helping to deal with stress and anxiety, weight control and providing ‘companionship’.
*

Temporal roles, such as connecting the flow of events or time in the smoker's day, providing a break from work or activities and relieving boredom.

This may be why smoking is sometimes referred to as the most difficult drug to give up.

Withdrawal
If a person who is dependent on the nicotine in tobacco suddenly stops using it or reduces the amount they use, they will experience withdrawal symptoms because their body has to readjust to functioning without the drug.

Most of these symptoms will disappear within days or weeks of quitting smoking, but cravings may persist for years after stopping using tobacco.

Symptoms include:

* cravings;
* irritability, agitation, depression and anxiety;
* insomnia and disturbed sleeping patterns;
* increased appetite and weight gain;
* restlessness and loss of concentration;
* headaches;
* coughing and sore throat;
* body aches and pains; and
stomach and bowel upsets.

The second involves waking up at an inconveniently early hour and not being able to fall asleep again. Learning effective self-hypnosis skills can help you to significantly improve your sleep patterns and can help with indirect effects of insomnia and sleep problems such as daytime anxiety and bruxism (teeth grinding during the night).
We recommend that you make use of the free self hypnosis guide on this site and take the time and effort necessary to become skillful at this. It will be worth it! The moments before sleep are scientifically measurable as 'hypnotic'. If you can learn to achieve this comfortable, daydreamy state at will, you will become a sleep expert.

Chronic insomnia and sleep disorders

Many people experience a bad night's sleep for various reasons, commonly because they have something on their mind. However, if your sleeping problems continue for more than a couple of days at a time, you must go and see a doctor, to check that your sleeplessness isn't a more serious condition requiring medical treatment.

Effects of Tobacco Smoke

Cigarettes and more specifically tobacco smoke are full of chemicals and poisons. As you discovered in our chemicals in cigarettes section tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, many of which make smoking harmful.




Effects of Tobacco Smoke

  • Smoking KILLS
  • Every year hundreds of thousands of people around the world die from diseases caused by smoking.
  • One in two lifetime smokers will die from their habit. Half of these deaths will occur in middle age.
  • Tobacco smoke also contributes to a number of cancers.
  • The mixture of nicotine and carbon monoxide in each cigarette you smoke temporarily increases your heart rate and blood pressure, straining your heart and blood vessels.
  • This can cause heart attacks and stroke. It slows your blood flow, cutting off oxygen to your feet and hands. Some smokers end up having their limbs
    amputated
    .
  • Tar coats your lungs like soot in a chimney and causes cancer. A 20-a-day smoker breathes in up to a full cup (210 g) of tar in a year.
  • Changing to low-tar cigarettes does not help because smokers usually take deeper puffs and hold the smoke in for longer, dragging the tar deeper into their lungs.
  • Carbon monoxide robs your muscles, brain and body tissue of oxygen, making your whole body and especially your heart work harder. Over time, your airways swell up and let less air into your lungs.
  • Smoking causes disease and is a slow way to die. The strain put on your body by smoking often causes years of suffering. Emphysema is an illness that slowly rots your lungs. People with emphysema often get bronchitis again and again, and suffer lung and heart failure.
  • Lung cancer from smoking is caused by the tar in tobacco smoke. Men who smoke are ten times more likely to die from lung cancer than non-smokers.
  • Heart disease and strokes are also more common among smokers than non-smokers.
  • Smoking causes fat deposits to narrow and block blood vessels which leads to heart attack.
  • Smoking causes around one in five deaths from heart disease.
  • In younger people, three out of four deaths from heart disease are due to smoking.

Smoking 'reduces effectiveness of anti-TNF therapy'

Add Comment
Smoking affects responses to anti-TNF therapy in rheumatoid arthritis patients, according to a study published in the Journal of Rheumatology.

Anti-TNF is a class of drugs designed and pioneered by the Arthritis Research Campaign for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.

The drugs work by reducing levels of a protein called TNF, excessive amounts of which cause inflammation when they build up in the bloodstream or joints.

They are only prescribed to patients who have not responded to other treatment such as methotrexate.

In the new study, researchers from the University Hospital of North Staffordshire have suggested that smoking history reduces the effectiveness of anti-TNF therapy.

The researchers questioned 154 patients who started anti-TNF treatment in 2002 about whether they had ever smoked and then calculated average pack-years (one pack year is equal to 20 cigarettes smoked daily for one year).

It was discovered that there was an increasing trend of no response to the treatment at three months and at 12 months related to higher pack-years.

"Rheumatoid arthritis patients with a history of smoking were more likely to show a poor response to TNF antagonists," the researchers concluded.

"Response failure was associated with the intensity of previous smoking, irrespective of smoking status at initiation of anti-TNF therapy."

A form of inflammatory arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects around 350,000 people in the UK. The disease is more common in women and men and generally develops between the ages of 30 and 50.

A spokesman for the Arthritis Research Campaign said that smoking was already known to be risk factor for developing rheumatoid arthritis.

"This new research adds to an existing body of evidence that smoking is a really bad idea for people at risk of or with rheumatoid arthritis," he added.

Tobacco addiction is one of the worst addictions

Tobacco addiction is one of the worst addictions

Add Comment
Tobacco addiction is one of the worst addictions, with the number of tobacco users and smokers having crossed the one billion-mark worldwide. Smoking has been and is being marketed, as a fashionable product is the cause for concern about smoking.
Effects Of Tobacco

Tobacco is the product that is projected to be responsible for the death of over half a million smokers this year. Tobacco is being promoted and projected as a consumer product.

The young generation is sucked into believing that it is fashionable to smoke as not being aware of the harmful effects of tobacco. At an influential age, the youngsters lap up every advertisement targeted at them and without realizing the ill effects waiting to consume them, take to smoking.
Tobacco – “Consumer Product”

For that matter, you may call tobacco a “consumer product”, because it “consumes” your health and even your life, if you are not that lucky.

It is unbelievable that such a harmful product that causes addiction, sickness and even painful death, is allowed to be marketed freely. Tobacco is among the few anti-health products that are legally allowed to be sold as consumer products.

Such is the influence of the bombardment of cigarette smoking advertisements that the warning label on every cigarette pack is ignored. It is the ‘it-can-never-happen-to-me’ attitude coupled with glamour attached to smoking, which is the undoing of most smokers.
Laws Should Be Reformed

Smoking is a serious addiction and every addict needs help urgently to get out of the habit. Tobacco reform laws need to be strict, in addition to heavy imposition of taxes, which can discourage people from getting addicted.
Making Less Availability

The idea is to make the availability of tobacco and nicotine difficult. People may argue that despite the ban on drugs, and their availability at prohibitive prices drug trade continues to flourish.

The counter to such arguments is what could have been the situation today had the consumption of drugs not been legalized. We may have had to confront a situation where every household had a drug addict or two.

Imposing a sudden ban on smoking or use of nicotine is not a very practical solution. This will leave the addicts high and dry. The entire process has to be a well thought out exercise.
Educational Programs

Educational programs on the ill effects of smoking need be developed, along with all possible professional and emotional help to help people get out the addiction. This is going to be a massive common exercise involving the state, the corporate world, and of course, the common man.

Ten steps to stopping smoking

Ten steps to stopping smoking

Add Comment
The first few weeks may be tough, but you can do it. Follow these ten steps to stopping smoking - for good. 1. Make a date and stick to it. Draw up a plan of action, considering what methods are available to you.
2. Keep busy to help take your mind off cigarettes. Throw away all your ashtrays, lighters and tobacco.
3. Drink plenty of fluids - keep a glass of water or juice by you and sip it steadily. Try different flavours.
4. Get more active. Walk instead of using the bus or car, try the stairs instead of the lift. Exercise helps you relax and can boost your morale.
5. Think positively. Withdrawal can be unpleasant, but it is a sign your body is recovering from the effects of tobacco. Irritability, urges to smoke and poor concentration are common - don't worry, they usually disappear after a few of weeks.
6. Change your routine. Try to avoid the shop where you usually buy cigarettes. Perhaps you should avoid the pub or the break room at work if there are lots of smokers around you. Try doing something totally different. Surprise yourself!
7. No excuses. Don't use a crisis or even good news to be an excuse for 'just one cigarette' - there is no such thing and you will soon want the next and the next....
8. Treat yourself. This is important. If you can, use the money you are saving by not smoking to buy yourself something special, big or small, that you usually would not have.
9. Be careful what you eat. Try not to snack on fatty foods. If you do need to snack, try fruit, raw vegetables or sugar-free gum or sweets.
10. Take one day at a time. Each day without a cigarette is good news for your health, your family and your pocket.

Are You Try to Buy A New Digital Camera ?

Add Comment
Are You Try to Buy A New Digital Camera  ? Hope this tips make you to choice a right for buying digital camera .Shopping for a digital camera is stressful. Most stores carry a fraction of the 200-plus cameras on the market, and except at specialty stores, salespeople aren't much help. You can ask friends for recommendations, but even if they love their camera, it might be discontinued, given short product cycles. Don't throw up your hands and give up. A little information, some strategizing, and our reviews can make the process less traumatic.
Like PCs, cell phones, and cars, digital cameras come in many sizes, shapes, and configurations. And your buying decision is likewise one you'll have to live with for a while. So break the decision down into a series of factors, then compare cameras based on how well they meet your needs, factor by factor. To determine which camera is best for you, consider image quality, performance, ergonomics, and style, your level (current or hoped for) of photographic skills, and price.
Megapixels make great sound bites, but optics and processing algorithms are also important. Indeed, just a few sensor manufacturers supply camera makers, so two cameras with the same MP rating may have the same sensor. And we've seen cameras produce better pictures than cameras in the same class with a higher MP count.
MP ratings are useful for determining how large you can print images—as well as how much you can crop images and still retain acceptable image quality. See "Get to Know Your Camera" and "More Than Just Megapixels" for more on megapixels.
Image quality is a more useful measure. Most digital cameras produce good images, with color fidelity, sharpness, and dynamic range that will satisfy most users. We rate image capabilities by sharpness (the more lines of resolution a camera can distinguish, the better) and the percentage of transition pixels on a subject's edges (the fewer, the better). We also consider color reproduction and exposure accuracy. For more on image quality and how we measure it, see our explanation in "Super Zooms".
If you plan to e-mail your pictures or print them on your ink jet using low-grade paper, you needn't be picky. Other criteria, such as price and size, may be more important. If you want razor-sharp, professionally finished 8-by-10 prints with colors that pop, then image quality is key.
To get top image quality, select from among cameras that we rate at 4 or 5 stars. We won't give a camera these scores if its pictures aren't good, no matter how cool it looks or what bells and whistles it has.
Digital cameras are getting faster, but they're still slower than film cameras. We test each camera's boot time (how quickly it can start up and be ready to shoot) and recycle time (how long it takes to shoot, process, and be ready for another shot). Long boot times are annoying, long recycle times more so. Make sure you can live with a camera's speeds. Try it out, or, if you can't, use a stopwatch to see what a 5-second recycle time really means.
Is the feature set right? Taking digital photos can be as simple as pointing the camera and pressing the shutter button. But digital cameras can also provide as much control over exposure, color, dynamic range, and so on as you want. Also consider extras like in-camera red-eye removal and panorama modes. In general, however, we'd pick a camera that takes better pictures over one with many features. You can always remove red-eye later, but you can't add in detail that a poor camera missed.
Ergonomics and style matter, too. When you try on shoes, you consider what they look like and how they feel. Apply similar criteria to each camera: How does it feel to hold? Is it too large or too heavy? Does a plastic body feel too flimsy? Are the controls sensibly placed? Are there too many or too few? Are the menus easy to navigate? The best menus explain features and settings and even give shooting advice. And don't forget vanity: Does the camera suit your style, or will it embarrass you?
We categorize digital cameras into compact, ultracompact, superzoom, enthusiast, and digital SLR, or D-SLR.
Compact cameras aren't the best, fastest, most stylish, smallest, or most flexible digital cameras. They take reasonable pictures and have reasonable feature sets. They generally also offer better performance, LCDs, and optics than the sexier, pricier ultracompacts.
Compacts lack the pro features and performance characteristics of higher-end cameras but fit into handbags or roomy pockets. This is by far the most popular camera category—particularly among bargain-conscious shooters and women—and it represents the best value for the average user. Unless you need a higher-end or smaller camera, this is the type of camera you should consider first.
Typical compacts include the Canon PowerShot S60 and the Kodak EasyShare LS743, which offer great value for money. But not all compacts offer sensibility over luxury; the Casio Exilim Pro EX-P600 is an all-metal camera loaded with extras—and priced accordingly.
Ultracompacts are small enough to fit in your palm and stylish enough for any social milieu: They'll fit into tiny bags or suit jacket pockets without ruining their lines. They can be simple—or sophisticated high-megapixel powerhouses. Either way, performance, features, and image quality generally take a back seat to form factor and style. Ultracompacts are for those who want the coolest toys and a camera always on hand. Examples include the Pentax Optio S4 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T1.
Enthusiast cameras are full-size models built on bigger budgets than compacts. They offer more precise controls, better lenses, and more features. Most important, they provide superior images, suitable for larger prints. They tend to have lenses that can zoom in closer, faster performance, histograms, exposure bracketing, high resolution, and manual controls for shutter speed, f-stop, and white balance. They're for users who don't want to spend the money on a D-SLR but still want versatility, quick and sure handling, and fast shooting. Examples include the Konica Minolta DiMage A2 and the Leica Digilux 2.
Superzooms, which have 10X or greater optical zoom lenses, are a subset of enthusiast cameras. Their large lenses put them into the full-size category, but their prices tend to fall between those of compact and enthusiast models. While some superzooms have high-end features, their users often prefer automatic settings. Examples include the Olympus Camedia C-765 Ultra Zoom and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10. Some, like the Panasonic, correct for camera shake—which is greater the more you zoom in—via image stabilization. We recently looked at six of these cameras (see "Super Zooms").
D-SLRs are at the pinnacle of digital cameras, with true reflex through-the-lens viewfinders, interchangeable lenses, total control over exposure and color, and a host of accessories. Besides pro features and functions, D-SLRs yield performance similar to those of 35-mm film cameras. Most important, they also produce the best image quality of any type of digital camera. D-SLRs usually have fully automatic settings, but to get your money's worth, you'll have to be the kind of shutterbug who likes manual controls.
D-SLR users include avid amateurs, pros, and those who need top-of-the-line equipment, regardless of cost. Examples are the Canon EOS Digital Rebel, the Nikon D70, and the Olympus E-1.
The bottom line is money. When shopping for any luxury item, the best strategy is first to decide what you can pay. Decide on form factor, features, and the rest based on what you're actually likely to use. Then look for a camera that meets your budget. We present 20 of this year's favorites to help you get started. Some, like the Leica Digilux 2, represent money-is-no-object quality; others, like the Concord Eye-Q 4360z, represent good quality at an impressively low price. Most fall somewhere in between. Examine our recommendations, pick one, try it in a store if you can, and shop around for the best deal

Beats by Dr. Dre have had unrivaled success.  The company offers a variety of headphones for listeners of all types. And despite their excessive price tag people continue to scoop them up. However, they’ve long lacked a wireless option, which means that Dre and company have been leaving money on the table, until now.
These are Dr. Dre’s newest headphones, the Beats Wireless.  If you haven’t guessed, they connect to any audio device using Bluetooth.  Unfortunately, this means that sound quality can only be so good since the throughput on Bluetooth is limited and won’t support HD audio.  However, Bluetooth insures that they’ll be compatible with almost any portable audio device and not limited to say the iPhone, that is to say if Dr. Dre had chosen AirPlay instead.
Voice and music playback controls sit on the right ear cup along with a built-in mic for taking calls directly on the wireless headphones.  We don’t know battery life, but if we had to guess you can probably assume 10 hours on a single charge.  Dre says these headphones are lightweight even though they sport a built-in battery and some wireless tech.  Unfortunately, they don’t seem to include a wired option, which help alleviate some of the pain associated with the $280 price tag, which comes by way of Gizmodo who got an ears on today.
No word on an official release date, but expect them in the next 30 days.

After much conjecture, hype and a leak, Facebook for the iPad has finally arrived.
In this case, the good old “took them long enough” hardly suffices.  The first iPad has already been on the market for just shy of two years and many sources point to the fallout between Apple and Facebook over the tablet manufactuer’s Ping service as the reason behind the delay.  However, Facebook employees have chalked it up to development delays.  Would it be too soon to suggest that perhaps the passing of Steve Jobs was enough motive to finally get the world’s largest social network to move forward?
Facebook for iPad allows users to view photos and videos in full screen as well as capture content using the iPad’s camera and post them to their news feed.  Games can also be played in full screen.  In terms of navigation, you can pinch, slide or tap from one screen to the next.  Ultimately, Facebook for the iPad should be a breath of fresh air for those that have long used the iPhone app in 2x mode.
Facebook for the iPad is available now from iTunes for $0.

How to Save Your iPhone from Water (how to)

How to Save Your iPhone from Water (how to)

Add Comment
You’d be surprised how often it happens. You’re checking your email or updating your Facebook page on your iPhone and nature calls. You walk in, lift the lid and kerplunk! The iPhone is sitting at the bottom of the toilet laughing at you. It’s almost as if there’s a micro black hole that can tug on anything electronic and pull it into the bowl. Don’t panic, you can save it. Just grab it and do the following:

1. Turn it off … IMMEDIATELY

First, turn it off. The longer your iPhone is on, the more likely the moisture that has seeped into it will short circuit and cause permanent damage. Turning it off stops any electrical activity humming around the circuitry.

2. Remove the battery, if you can (applies to non iPhones)

If you have a phone that has a removable battery, you’ll want to take it out now and completely dry it off. Use a blow dryer set on low just to be sure. This will ensure that your battery doesn’t corrode later over time.  If you don’t, well, there’s really not much you can do but move on to step 2.

3. Bury your phone in uncooked rice

Rice?  Yes, I know it sounds strange, but the next thing you’ll want to do is fill a quart or gallon size Ziploc with a cup or two of uncooked rice and bury your phone in it. If it takes more, then fine. But completely cover it and seal it.Over a few days, the  rice will act as a desiccant to draw out any excess moisture from within the phone.  If you are in the habit of keeping those silica packets that come in electronics and shoe boxes, those will work, as well.  But you’ll need a lot of them.

4.  Time will tell

Now is not the time to be impatient. That phone is going to have to sit in the rice for a few days to get completely moisture free. So if you have an old backup phone, and your smartphone is a GSM phone, then you may want to remove the SIM and use that backup for a few days. Yeah, you won’t have your apps or music player, but you can live without it for a few days, right? Your patience will be rewarded.

5. Blow dry the finishing touches

While the rice will draw out most of the moisture, there may be a little bit left and it may show on your LCD screen in the form of a black area when you turn it on. Don’t panic. Just turn the phone back off and either place it back in the rice or, use a blow dryer on low for about 15-20 minutes to drive off the rest of the moisture. I had this happen to my iPhone 3GS and there was a small black corner on the LCD. So I just blow dried it in the rice until the corner came back. It didn’t come back completely, but over time, it gradually did. But don’t think that if you can do it on low for 20 minutes, you can do it on high for 10, or save yourself two days in a rice bath. The higher the heat, the more likely you could damage the interior or cause any glue used to secure parts to melt and loosen them. Again, your patience will be rewarded.

6. Living with it

While your phone will come back, it may not be perfect right away.  And there may be some minor annoyances over the long term. First, understand that depending on your smartphone, your mileage (results) may vary.  What will work well for an iPhone may not be the complete solution for your Android or Blackberry phone.  But it’s a good place to start.  Also, understand that there is a small dot in every smartphone that changes color to reflect water exposure. So if you have any problems with the phone – that is the first thing the technician will check. If they see that there has been water damage, the warranty will be voided and you’ll be out of luck. Some corrosion may also occur over time in areas like the on/off button.

Conclusion

But in the end, it should be manageable.  I dropped my iPhone 3GS in water about 2 years ago. Dried it out and it’s been working ever since. So don’t panic! Just remember RICE and TIME.  Patience is your friend.

One of the biggest decisions you will make, as the big day approaches, is choosing your dream wedding dress. The experience can be exciting, as well as a little overwhelming. No worries! Just remember to plan ahead (6-12 months), do your research, keep an open mind, set a budget and shop around.
Be inspired by these latest spring trends.
Modern Lace
Lace gowns have long been a favorite style amongst traditional brides for many decades but recently have increased in mass popularity due to celebrity brides like Kate Middleton and Ivanka Trump. Designers are reinventing these classic looks with fresh, modern approaches for 2012. Whether you choose Alencon or Chantilly, lace can be customized in many unique ways to specifically fit you.
Amanda Bonnell from Belle Vie Bridal Couture states, “Whether it’s for the more traditional type or for the more modern, lace gowns will forever be in fashion for every type of bride. Lace can be translated into all 7 types of fashion and can perfectly fit any venue or season! We love what our designers have done to add a new twist to lace, from the layering of different layers to the use of two tone colors to emphasize the full expression of lace. We also love the pairing of lace with different silk fabrics, to embody a unique look for that ‘traditional’ bride who wants to be very unique on her wedding day! You’ll have to come see what we are talking about! It’s true couture beauty around her!”

Crinkle Chiffon
Wedding gown designers are getting more and more innovative with their use of fabric. Some are making bold statements with dramatic layered crinkle chiffon skirts while others are creating, classic yet timeless pieces, like Jenny Yoo. The Rowan dress in her collection features a strapless silhouette and a delicately ruched bodice for an elegant look. For extra flair, modify the sash with a floral or jeweled belt. Don’t be afraid to express yourself!
