We are all entitled to a little self indulgence now and again. We may like to buy expensive suits, silk ties, play golf, gamble a little on lone. Everything is fine as long as it is in moderation and does no harm. It is when people go over the line of what is responsible behavior that they can begin to do damage.
Note only to themselves but to their loved ones. One very important aspect where mutual responsibility plays a very major role is health. If you see a member of your family doing damage to themselves by abusing their health then it is also your responsibility to step in and remind them of the fact.
The damage that people can do themselves and those around them by smoking is now common knowledge, and increasingly more a smoker is being treated as a social pariah. However obesity is an equally serious problem, which is generally considered as a problem only for the person who has adopted such an unhealthy life style, and only they will need to bear the burden for it.
However this is far from the truth and the person's family will suffer equally from the seeing their loved one sufferers from the side effects of carrying all that excess weight. This is why pressure from family is becoming a common factor in convoking chronically overweight people to adopt a new life regime, based around healthy eating and exercise. The first step that a person has to take in this new life path is to wipe the slate clean.
For all the years of overeating, a coating of bacteria and undigested feces has formed in their colon, and caused it malfunction. By flushing their colon, they will rid their system of all this junk that has accumulated, and will immediately feel the positive effects. Backed by the love and the support of their family, they will begin to take the first steps back to responsibility and a longer, healthier life.
