I was a heavy smoker for 46 years. I smoked upto 50 cigarettes per day.
You can read a lot of ex smokers success stories, you never think that one day you will be able to say I quit smoking. Seriously you too can become an ex cigarette smoker too.
Fear Of Quitting Smoking
Fear of quitting smoking Is what I now firmly believe is what stops us from giving up our cigarettes and keeps us puffing away. Twice in my life when I needed to be hospitalized I was more worried about how I was going to be able to smoke in the hospital. Than the operation itself. That’s crazy!
There are hundreds of toxic reasons to give up smoking cigarettes including our health I agree. But that fear of quitting smoking is real.
My reasons for quitting smoking
Dare I say Honestly it was the cost and I am not going to tell lies and say my health even after 46 years. Yes I smoked for 46 years and heavy 35-50 cigarettes per day. I think it was my time.

Do not pre-plan any day or time.
I told myself that I would see how long I could go without a Cigarette.

Do NOT say you will quit smoking = No pressure.
Do NOT tell anyone that you are trying to quit.
Maybe I was ready mentally and perhaps that is another helpful tip, though I wasn’t aware of it at the time.
Thirty minutes at a time that’s how I started Like the One Day At A Time used by those in Alcoholics Anonymous.

Is There A Secret To Quitting Smoking
There is NO secret to quitting smoking Please don’t waste your hard earned money on advertisers who try to give you the big sell. I do think that there are some good Stop Smoking Books and DVDs.
There is also a medical prescription for stop smoking medication through your doctor. Tablets which I also tried.
Unfortunately I do already suffer depression and anxiety. I became severely depressed while taking this medication. I had to cease the medication.
And Yes I had stopped smoking. But of course I came off the medication and went straight for a cigarette.
Tea along with water is the most consumed beverage throughout the World. Dad has drunk tea for the best part of his 88 years. He likes nothing better than to make a perfect Pot of tea from loose leaf Tea Leaves and always in a Teapot.
I guess because dad was born in England and Oh how the English love their cuppa tea. You know Of course, “you must know how to brew that tea the right way” So says my Dad.
I generally avoid buying dad hot tea accessories but I’m going out on a limb this year. Previously I felt that the Best Gifts for Tea Drinkers were limited. I don’t know why I thought that, How naive I am.
Of course it is not only the English who can make great tea and Mary Lou Heiss explains this well in her book The Story Of Tea. This book will tell you how to buy your tea, and make a good brew. A must buy for serious Tea Drinkers.
So lets start with teapots and tea kettles so many choices it’s hard to know where to start first.
Maybe we can look at Glass Teapots with Infuser. One of my dads favorites: I love to see the tea wend it’s way out of the infuser into the boiling water, leaving the tea leaves behind. Have you tried the teapot warmers perfectly safe for glass teapots.
Last Christmas my daughter and I both had come up with one of those light bulb moments for Christmas gift giving. We both made gift baskets full of goodies that each person liked and they were a big hit. Easy to put together when you have chosen your basket.
The most elegant of the tea for one teapots I chose was Royal Albert “Old Country Roses”: certainly not a cheap teapot but you all deserve to be spoilt. The green teapot ideal for one person as it holds 2 cups and I picked the blue teapot for the men out there.

Did you know Tea is equal to drinking water because it also helps keep you hydrated. Tea also contains flavonoids and antioxidants which may help prevent some Cancers and Heart Disease. By drinking 3-4 cups per day you can help your health.
For people who may live on their own or want a cup of tea while the family are away, the ideal is a single serve teapot with a cup. While many will easily pop a tea bag those of us who enjoy a cup of tea with loose tea leaves can still enjoy a cuppa with a teapot with cup on the bottom.

Hi my names Michelle and while I write my blog posts My gorgeous boy Rudi is always with me. When awake I think, he feels I am ignoring him. He can become quite insistent on wanting something to nibble or on going outside.
I started giving thought to the love and feelings between animals and their owners. And I have read that it is the Hormone Oxytocin that is set off in our brain and that of our dogs too. When you have this all over feeling of love when you are looking at each other. Aah it’s always the eyes that get you in
