Quitting Smoking

Quote From: amyec22

Thank you for the link. I think I was putting .com instead of .org at the end of the address. 

  

-Amy 

  

Five days, 5 hours, 16 minutes and 30 seconds. 104 cigarettes not smoked, saving $19.19. Life saved: 8 hours, 40 minutes. 

  

I am so proud of myself!!  And my husband also quit with me and hasn't smoked since the 1st !!! 

I had quit smoking in 2003 for 3 months.  My thyroid went nuts and I gained 20 lbs!  I do plan to try and quit again.....   I find it easy not to smoke when I'm out and busy.  I don't even take any smokes with me.  The hard part is when I am home alone.  Yikes........    I guess I should find away to replace the cig.  It can't be with food though......LOL 

I will look at the web address www.silkquit.org/meter.html 

Thx!

Skin Design

Quote From: superdl1

I have looked on the internet for this sign and can't find one. The closest one was an anchor with a snake. Ours loos lik it has a heart in the middle. Does it.? It's hard to see it up close enough. It is not a button. I doubt it. I will look further to see what I can find.

To me, it looks like the fish........  I think it is a good thing.  I don't think you've been cursed...... 

It definetly is strange though......... Thx for sharing!

re: Quote

Quote From: doumissme2

I'm excited to see this show.  My daughter started with night tears at 18 months old. It's was horrible.  These went on until age 2 1/2. Took her to her doctor and he recommended taking her to someone who was more qualified. That speciliast told us he felt her night terrors were from ADHD but the only way to determine if she had ADHD was through a Brain Specht.  That was done and it confirmed was he suspected.  She had a severe case of ADHD and that was a good part of her night tears.  It will be interesting tomorrow if the words ADHD or ADD come up. So many people are in denial about ADHD/ADD when they do NOT have to be.

What does ADHD or ADD stand for?   

I will be very interested in this show.  I have walked, talked, and ate in my sleep.  I have also kicked doors and not remember anything.  I usually have a good time in my sleep.  I'm told that I laugh a lot.  BUT, I do get mean sometimes.  One morning when I woke up my 2 dogs were acting terrified of me.  I had a feeling I did something in my sleep.  I was having scary dreams every night for a period of time.  I figued out it might be the Noni juice (1 ounce at night) that I had started drinking.  I changed from drinking it at night to drinking it in the morning and the terrifing dreams stopped.  The Noni juice works for colitis.   

I saw a show about a guy that had drove to his mother- in- laws house and killed her in his sleep. A sleep specialist had proof that he stayed too long in his deepest sleep and he got off.  How could you live with yourself after that.  This can be scary stuff.  Sure is a mystery to me. 

I can only hope there is help out there for everyone, including me, with this problem.   I know Dr. Phil will be able to help........

Dogs

Quote From: packlder

Your experience is with your own dog, that is one dog. I never said they don't recognize or remember people, but I stand by my statement that they do adapt. Yours' did, he was with another family for 4 months! That's a long time. What good does it do to *blame*. And I am sorry, but that dog is a "danger"! I understand the dog was startled, but it's not really a good excuse, simply for the fact that he caused alot of harm to this little girl! This dad will have to face this very soon.

Have you heard of the Dog Whisperer?  He is on the National Geographics channel.  He is a miracle worker with problem dogs.  Although, at the beginning of the show, they put up a warning not to try this at home.  BUT, I have used some of his ways with my dogs and it is amazing!  I'm hoping since their dog is def they have taught it hand and touch controls.   

I have 2 dogs.  The golden retriever nipped at my granddaughter when she was almost 2 yrs old.  I worked with him and he never did that again!   She could pull his tail and even take his food.  It only took 10 minutes to correct this.  BUT, if he had bitten her whole face and I had never seen the Dog Whisperer, I no doubt would have put him down.   

My other dog is a rott and she loves kids.  No problem there.  Her fault was trying to be the leader on walks.  That is solved too.  That took about 3 days to accomplish.   

Well, good luck Steve.  Just remember that your whole family can be the pack leaders.   

Good Luck to ya!  ~C~

Other Quote

Quote From: atsqueen

As far as the husband that wants the dog that bit his daughter to be back in the house, I suggest watching a show called "The Dog Whisperer"!! It is on the National Geographic channel.   It is very obvious that he allows his dog to be HIS pack leader instead of the other way around.  He allows his dog to be the dominant one over everyone.  When no one in the house is exercising dominance, the dog instinctively picks up the slack and becomes dominant over everyone.  The site to go to for the Dog Whisperer to obtain and maintain complete control over a dog no matter what the breed is www.cesarmillaninc.com .  Maybe Dr. Phil can have him as a guest one day. 

  

  

I just posted a message about the dog whisperer.  I didn't see your "Quote" yet.   He is amazing!

Normal

Quote From: annanut

I guess my question is sort of stupid, and really I don't want to ask it so I have no idea why I'm doing this. The thing is, that I cut myself. Wow, it's for some reason pretty hard to say on a huge open board like this instead of one of the others. I have three friends who also do this, not that we influenced each other since no one knew until recently. Of us, three have been hospitalized (myself included) in psychiatric wards, although for other reasons. I guess I 'know' that this isn't normal back there in my brain in the box where I keep my rationality and a whole bunch of other stuff I really have no use for in daily life, like Cheerios. But I don't really 'know' it in some ways.

Sometimes I tell myself it really bothers me, and I tell other people that, but really it doesn't, or not very much. It used to really freak me out, when I didn't do it too often, to the point where I ran to the clinic after some rather superficial scratches with razor blades. I used to hate myself for it. I'm Roman Catholic: you don't carve up your body (for various theological reasons). But now, after four years of starting what seems to be a cycle ranging from once a week to more than once a day, it doesn't really bother me at all anymore. I mean, wow, there have times recently I should have gotten stitches but I was afraid to go to the hospital. The only time I've ever really stopped is when I quit eating for a few months which, fankly, is much worse and harder to hide.

Anyway, amid all this rambling, etc., I guess what I'm really wondering is whether it's normal to care so much less when objectively there's so much more damage, to care not at all the more it gets worse? It seems that's just how it is, but then again, isn't that a little backwards?

My opinion, take it or leave it.   

The way to stop doing this is to go help someone.  Someone that  really needs help and will appreciate it.  Their gratitude alone will stop you from having the need to cut yourself.  Get out of yourself.

Quote From: beadlady29

To lostsoul on forgetting and moving on;  I hate to be the bearer of not so good news, but the chances are high that you will never forget.  I also am glad to be the bearer of good news - you can move on.  It takes a lot of work and commitment on your part along with the help and guidance of a really good, experienced therapist to get past the crap of the past and get on with living your life for you and your children. It is definitely doable and if you haven't done so yet, I recommend getting into counseling.  I also suggeest checking out prospective therapists' credentials and finding out if they are experienced in this area.  That is definitely a big +.  My unshakeable faith in God has also helped me thru many a tough spot.  I am not done with therapy myself, and in fact have a long way to go.  A positive attitude is really hard to pull up out from within and I suspect that that is one of the keys instrumental in moving on.  I get there once in awhile but not nearly enough.  Something can trigger memories for me and it is like it is happening all over again.  That is where I seem to get stuck these days, along with this new diagnoses of DID that I really don't want to admit is probably right on the money.  I would like to learn more about that and how one deals with the symptoms of memory loss, etc. that go along with it and send my world into such chaos.  Anyway, I wish you the best in learning to deal with your pain and moving past it. And also that don't ever give up.  Sometimes it really is darkest before the dawn.  And sometimes just knowing and reminding yourself that there is a light at the end of the tunnel makes all the difference.

I was molested by my Dad and a few Uncles.  About the only way I know of over coming this is:

You have to remember everything.  You have to feel everything, again.  As soon as everything is out,

you gotta surround it, shrink it to the size of a sand pebble, and toss it in the sand.

Another Approach

I think a lot of these kids starved to death in a previous life.  1 of my granddaughters was like this.  She was grabbing food like crazy.  I sat her on my lap (facing away from me) and whispered to her "not to worry.  In this life she would have plenty to eat and she was going to have a great life.".  I asked God to take away any part of her past life and that it be absolved into the white light of the holy spirit.  
In my granddaughters case, this worked. 
It's worth a try. 
For an older child, this should be done when they are falling asleep.  They should be laying down.  Place your hand on their heart and say the above quote...
Your Welcome....

Keep It

Quote From: unclemtl

Whether you like it or not, looks matter when it comes to certain jobs. The waitress or bartender I would say get hired because they have the requisit skills and looked sexy. It's part of the business just as many sales representatives for pharamcutical companies are ex-cheerleaders or models because attractive people have influence over other people and people want to be liked by attractive people. Do you think Fox News has attractive and very sexy female news reporters by chance. Do you notice any female reporters on Fox News or CNN who aren't attractive and slim. How about a reatiler that caters to the hip crowd, any overweight sales reps?

 

Whether it is legal or not to discriminate with regards to weight and looks is beyond the scopr of this topic, but to be honest it probably is illegal. That said, sexy slim women and men in public and service jobs are what the public wants to see and what affetcs there purchasing patterns. It's just business and the way the average I believe the average North American person views the world.

 

Now is that to say that your less valuable as a person because you aren't slim and sexy. Absolutely not! A person is made up from their character and personality and their looks. Defining a person just by their looks is shallow. But from a busniess perspective, where a person works at a job where working for or with the public I would say the attractiveness of the person afftects sales figures and the success of the business. 

Honestly.  I would keep it.  I thought there was a law about this.  If you receive anything that you didn't order, It is yours.... I thought I heard David Horowitz say this....
Well, I guess we will find out when the show airs.
