Problems and difficulties related to alcohol can be generally termed as Alcoholism and is usually associated with excessive, uncontrolled intake of alcohol.

These features are considered to play a significant role in hindering an alcoholic's ability to control or stop drinking Alcoholism can severely affect mental health thereby increasing the risk of suicide. Depression is a common symptom alcoholism. 

Binge drinking is defined by The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) as the amount of alcohol that leads to a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08, which could be attained in most adults by consumption of five drinks for men or four for women over a period of 2-hour.

Befikar Umar Bhar: Five Things I will do

The top five things I will do if I can be Befikar Umar Bhar. There is a thought that having a little worry is actually good for our health and mind. Usually a little worry makes us to think in advance and assists us in getting ready for the problems and hard luck that may come to us at any unexpected moment. But, in most of our life there is no such term “little worry”. We all usually suffer from a lot of worries and when we worry too much our life truly becomes a mess. This results in unwanted stress that again dents our happiness in life. Our life is no doubt burdened with a plenty of worries.

A life without any worries or with that little worry is a dream for every individual. Is such a life possible? What will I do if I truly get a life without any worries? A life truly Befikar Umar Bhar.
If I really can have a life free from all the worries in life i.e. I can be Befikar Umar Bhar then I will first love to carry forward the following tasks in life.

1. Give time to my family and friends

The life full of worries and stress affects the relationships with families and friends the most. When I will have a worry free life I will be able to completely devote my life in nurturing my relationships with my dear ones. I will spend a lot of quality time with them without thinking of any worries at the back of my mind. This will be the most precious gift of a worry less life.

2. Buy my dream home and car

Buying a dream home and a dream car are two of the most common desires of every man and I am no exception. Whenever I think of chasing these dreams more realistic priorities in life usually pull me back and I have to settle for something less. With no worries to peg me down I will launch myself to get my dream home followed by the dream car.

3. Will go for a Long drive in the countryside

Yes, this is the first thing I will do. I always like to go for a long drive and I often try to arrange one. But, whenever I go for one I cannot leave behind my worries and they always haunt during such pleasant trips. I have to attend phone calls, check my mails and so on. This time round I will truly enjoy my long drive with no worries to pull me back in my dream car.

With a worry free life I will definitely plan to fulfil my long back desires to go for all these four adventure sports Scuba Diving, Snorkelling, Surfing and Bunzy Jumping.

5. Going for a world tour

Going for world tour is dream for everybody and as a travel freak; I definitely have the dream of travelling throughout the world. When I can lead a life that is in fact worry free I will certainly arrange a world tour with my family.

Being Befikar Umar Bhar is a dream for every individual. We all love to have a worry free life, but in reality it seems a distant dream. Watching the following video may give you an idea to see that dream come true.

Van Heusen My Fit: The New Definition of Custom Clothing

Recently I have gone through a new experience of custom clothing when I happened to visit a nearby Van Heusen store in Kolkata. I had some time in hand and just wanted to check the new arrivals from Van Heusen, so that I can buy them at my convenience. 

Then I discovered something new! A unique concept that will surely change the custom fit perception. The concept is the MY Fit Collection from Van Heusen that allows additional custom fitting based on the body type of the customer.

Van Heusen My Fit

The traditional ways of buying clothes

Traditionally, there are two ways one can choose to buy a shirt, trouser or suit.  Either you have to buy the cloth from the market and give it to the tailor to stitch it custom fit for you or you can buy them readymade from your favourite showroom.

The problem with the traditional system

Both the traditional systems have their own problems. Getting a shirt or trouser stitched by a tailor is often a cumbersome process. It is definitely time consuming and often the readymade shirts and trousers offer more variety and design uniqueness. Moreover, finding a good tailor at a reasonable price is not that easy. If the tailor is not good, the customisation you are looking for will surely be missed. The brand value of a readymade shirt will be missed as well.

On the other hand, getting a perfect fit readymade shirt or trouser is a dream. Invariably, it will not fit completely. You will not get your perfect size. Either it will be a bit too tight or a bit too loose and you have to settle for the one which is the nearest to the perfect fitting.

My Fit from Van Heusen: The solution

My Fit from Van Heusen is something in between these two traditional concepts. In My Fit the readymade shirt or Trouser can be modified according to your body shape and size. For example, if you a bit fat on your tummy, then you can increase the width of your shirt at your tummy area without going for a higher size. This way the shirt will perfectly fit for you both at shoulder and tummy levels. This way there are various options available to customize the sizes according to your requirement. There are various size options available for both shirts (6) and trousers (5) which again can be further customized as shown in the pictures below. You can have your choice of sleeves, collars and cuffs with three different sleeve lengths.

Steps involved during online purchase

How to go for Van Heusen My Fit

You can go for Van Heusen My Fit both through online and offline mode. But it is better to know your size first by visiting a Van Heusen store. Once you know your size you can just order for a My Fit shirt or trouser anytime while sipping a cup of coffee. You can also order it through the store and it will be delivered at your doorstep and you can avail cash on delivery facility for that as well.

The online purchase is easier and better than any of the online stores I visited so far. After going to you just have to choose the size and other customisation options available and then the fabric. Another good thing with My Fit is that you can always have the range of fabrics offered. No dependence on the store stocks anymore. For me, once I placed the order it was delivered within 7 days as promised during order. Remember, it is not a readymade shirt that just needs packing and shipping. After the order, it has to be stitched according to your body type and then delivered.

The packing was just too good and the fabric and making are just awesome (as expected from Van Heusen). You can see my picture here wearing the shirt and trouser. It fitted me perfectly and I really felt very comfortable wearing them.
