Ever wondered Why Pumpkin Halloween I always mistakenly thought that this Originated in The USA it all kind of comes together. Fall, Autumn,Thanksgiving, Halloween, wrong it actually originated in Ireland and they were actually called Jack O Lanterns. Not with Pumpkins though but with Potatoes or Turnips in which a candle was placed to light the way.
It was not until the Irish migrated to America and saw the Big bright Orange Pumpkins growing that a new trend was started,
Stories abound about how when and why Witches came to be on Halloween and it is too long a story to tell here but I found you a lovely video made for children and there are some great reads online about Witches and Halloween if you Google.

You hear a lot of ex smokers success stories, you never think that one day you will be one of them. Seriously you can be
Fear Of Quitting Smoking
Fear of quitting smoking I now 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. Than the operation itself. Thats crazy!
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 because after 46 years. Yes I smoked for 46 years and heavy 35-50 cigarettes per day. I think it was my time.
There are hundreds of toxic reasons to give up cigarettes,including our health I agree but that fear of quitting smoking is real.
There is NO secret of quitting smoking Please don’t waste your hard earned money on advertisers who try to give you the big sell.
It all comes back to you, there is prescription stop smoking products, tablets which I also tried. Unfortunately for me I became very depressed while taking them, I had stopped smoking but of course I came off the medication and went straight for a cigarette.
My Quit Smoking encouragement My tips to give up smoking that worked for me
I guess I must have been ready mentally and perhaps that is another helpful tip, though I wasn’t aware of it at the time.
I had not pre-planned any day or time
I told myself to see how long I could go without a Cigarette, now before you hurriedly click out of my site because I haven’t offered a miracle think about it.
I have NOT said I will quit smoking. I have not said I am having my last cigarette and I have not said I will never smoke again.
I did not tell anyone that I was trying to quit
I absolutely firmly believe it was the way I had set my thinking, my own mindset I only had to get through a few minutes at a time, an hour at a time a day at a time.
The days went to weeks,the weeks to months
Honestly –This worked for me –Do not set a date but when you feel ready to try just tell yourself, that you will see how long you can gowithout a cigarette. Sound too simple yes it does but it truly did work for me I quit smoking.
I Quit Nicotine Cold Turkey I still can’t believe it I can say I am an ex-smoker. So can you Give it a try you have nothing to lose.
Do programs help quit smoking
I did join after a week a government incentive program for extra support, Do programs help quit smoking well for me it was a bit of extra support. They phoned me twice weekly to start and after 3 months I felt ok to carry on.
Hypnotherapy for Quitting Smoking
Have you tried to give up smoking and failed, does hypnotherapy to quit smoking work. I honestly cannot tell you I have not tried hypnotherapy myself strangely I did not give it a thought.
I do think though that it could be the way to go for a few people
I have recently read up on The Kerry Gaynor Method – The Doctor Recommended way to QUIT SMOKING FOR LIFE – No withdrawals, Cravings, or Weight Gain, guaranteed. Again I have not tried this,but the reviews show many have and been successful
I was about a month along and reading a lot of books. Have you got any idea how much extra time you have when you aren’t rushing off to smoke a cigarette? Some of my book characters smoked and that really affected me so I went and purchased some gum, Nicorette Nicotine gum.
I chose 4mg and found it really helped, here are some you can choose from. I used Nicorette you may prefer the 2mg.
I liked the mint taste of the Nicorette gum and found I could chew a piece for a couple of hours by chewing as recommended. Then resting the gum in my mouth. I did not feel any tingling in my mouth in fact I had no adverse effects.
Nicotine Patches do they work
Nicotine patches contain about 1/3 to 1/2 of nicotine found in cigarettes and the nicotine from them moves a lot slower through your body than that of a cigarette.
Nicotine therapy will work for most smokers wanting to quit it is a case of how badly you want to quit that counts. However if at any time you slip up don’t give up just go back to what you have been doing.
If you are thinking about combining two quit smoking aids together such as the patch and gum please consult your Doctor.
