The web sites below have lots of good information on both healthy foods and healthy weight loss. Check them out.

Man in stress

At times, we all feel stressed, depressed, sad, and angry – it is a normal part of life! But sometimes these feelings don’t leave. When this happens, it can affect our lives – our school work, family, friendships, and relationships. When we feel this way we may not enjoy things we used to do – like sports, video games and hanging out with friends. Sometimes, things can feel so bad that we think about suicide.

Booze and Other Drugs

Booze and other drugs can be hazardous to your health. Every year people die from alcohol and drug overdoses and from the things they do when they are drunk or high. Alcohol and drugs let us feel it’s okay to do things we would never do if were straight and sober. This is particularly true when it comes to sex. If you choose to drink or do drugs you should know the risks. The web sites below are worth checking out.
