Why Your Electric Bill is So High

Image source

From light bulbs to hair dryers to central air, nearly everything in a home uses energy, and nearly everything costs money. And you know things have gotten a little out of hand when your energy bill comes and you feel the need to unplug everything, pack up the family and move to a farm deep in the country. But this kind of extreme isn’t necessary, so slow down, cowboy, all that needs to be done is a simple cutback. Whether it be minor, or an all-out purge, it may help to reduce bills and conserve a little energy. (Source)

Dealing With Addiction

If you’re addicted:

It began when Bill decided to delay his first drink of whisky until noon. When noon arrived, he sat down at the kitchen table, poured himself a double and stared at the glass.

No. He he wasn’t going to have it now. He would wait an hour. If in one hour he still wanted the drink, he could have it then.

The hour came and went. Bill was busy with errands around the house and hardly noticed. When supper time arrived, he washed down his meal with a glass of water. If he wanted whisky, he could have a glass in one more hour.

When that hour elapsed, Bill decided he could wait another hour. Sure, he wanted a drink. And he COULD have a drink (or two if he wanted), but in one hour. (Source)
