or at least slow down………..

     I went through a party harty stage when I was in my late twenties and thirties.  I never had a desire to drink really or make it a career because being raised by an alcoholic parent I know what it does to people.  What drew me to these people was the fact that I felt comfortable around them due to my upbringing with people who over indulge.  I was lucky enough to have strict parents though, one who over indulged but still strict, and one who didn’t believe in drinking or smoking, or even wearing make up.  I was also lucky enough to not like the taste of most alcoholic beverages ……course by the third one….they taste…… not so bad.  But like I told someone I took a trip with a few years ago.  I want to do something different now.   Been there, done that.  I want to see the country and do things  outdoors.  My heart belongs to nature.  I really belong in the wilderness.  I am a Naturist. 

Here are some ways I used during that period to keep from becomming a alcoholic:

1)     Never drink alone or at least don’t make a habit of it.  A few sips of wine at    

         dinner is enough if you’re alone.  You don’t have to finish the bottle.  It

         won’t spoil.

2)     Buy something you don’t like the taste of.  This is a good tip for smokers too.

3)     Limit yourself to no more than three drinks.  Take your time.  It’s not a

         race.  There is plenty more where that came from. 

4)     Try to stay within the legal limit of drinks per your weight.  Check here: 


5)     Don’t get involved in a drinking contest.  It’s not cool in the long run.

6)     If you’re uncomfortable with who you are and you drink to get the nerve to 

         be more outgoing, go to a class or read a book.  Take some group hikes.  Get

         comfortable with who you are before you take on the drinking game.

7)     Make sure you eat at some point during the event.  I have known some

         alcoholics who go days without eating.  They literally live on alcohol

         alone……and alone is how they usually end up.

8)     Try to make friends with people who don’t consider drinking a way of life.

         I have known people who can’t do any kind of event without alcohol around.  Drinking to me is a recreational sport.  A drink or two here and there. Not a drunk or two everywhere.

{June 17, 2011}   How To Quit Smoking

Here are just a few tips on how to quit smoking:

1)     Go into a room or an establishment that does not allow smoking.  Note the

         clean air…….

2)     Take off your hat, coat, or scarf, or even your bag and leave it on a chair.

3)     Take a walk around the room or establishment and notice how clean 

         and fresh the air smells.

4)     Now come back to your chair where you left your article of wear or bag….

5)     As you approach your article, notice that unbearable stinch! 

6)     Try to realize how bad it really smells.  Did you figure out what’s causing it?

7)     Go back to your vehicle now to see if you notice the same horrible odor…..

8)     Do this several times until you figure out the culprit…….

9)     A heart felt suggestion si to – Stop Smoking!

10)   Kill three birds with one stone:  

          Save your health.

          Save lot’s of money.

          Have more friends.

Fun huh?
