Get ready to be effected, er. . . I mean, affected.
If you find yourself in a quandry, pickle, or other such dilemma about whether to use effect or affect, remember this:
The vast majority of the time use the e when the word is a noun, and a when it's a verb.
There are a few exceptions but let's not clutter things up right now when the above little pearl of wisdom will serve you well about 95% of the time.
1. You have no idea how horseradish and sauerkraut (affect/effect) me.
2. You cannot believe the (affect/effect) horseradish and sauerkraut have on me.
How'd ya do?
