How is Your Glutathione?

There are so many websites today offering numerous ways to quit smoking, many the same or similar, some quite different. Today the government’s 1-800-QUITNOW hotline is receiving a record number of calls. From 2004 to 2010 the total number of calls received was just under three million. So far in just this year, 2011, there have been over six hundred thousand additional calls! It is clear that more Americans than ever before are seeking some way to end their habit/addiction to smoking cigarettes, and once and for all, stop smoking.

To successfully quit smoking, to really stop smoking, one must find the right solution to their problem. Many seek to stop smoking using the nicotine patch. The theory is that if one uses the nicotine patch, and slowly withdraws from nicotine by using less and less nicotine in the patches, that in the end, the desire to smoke will be gone. The success rate for this system is woefully small (1). In fact, it is similar (or less) to just trying to quit “cold turkey”. This tells us that the desire to smoke cannot simply be found in the addiction to nicotine. Surely that is a part of the syndrome, but it cannot be all of it, or the system would be 100% successful for each and every smoker using it. But it is not. Not even close. Far less than 10%

The same is true for those who choose to use the nicotine gum. This is gum saturated with nicotine in various amounts, used to withdraw from the addiction to nicotine. But nicotine gum works no better than does the nicotine patch (2).

One of the oldest programs to quit smoking is using a hypnosis program. Hypnotists have for decades been taking money from those who believe that a hypnosis to quit smoking program will help them to once and for all stop smoking. However, having been a clinical hypnotherapist in perhaps the largest and oldest hypnosis clinic in the USA, I can tell you that although I do believe hypnosis should be a part of a successful campaign to quit smoking, the vast majority of hypnotists do not know how to correctly use hypnosis to get their clients to quit smoking. So the end result is that using a hypnosis program to quit smoking is rarely successful in the long term.

In fact, Kerry Packer, who was, until his death in 2005, the most wealthy man in Australia and one of the world’s multibillionaires, is reported to have paid Marshall Sylver, a world renowned hypnotist, $100,000 for a single session of hypnosis to help him quit smoking. It did not take. Kerry Packer did not stop smoking through hypnosis.

To quit smoking now, what a smoker must do is begin to deal with the core issue that drives the desire to continue to smoke cigarettes. To quit smoking through hypnosis, the hypnosis must be properly applied. It should not focus on the present, telling the subject that they will no longer  MoonWLKR desire to smoke, or that the cigarettes will begin to taste like rotten eggs, or any other such nonsense. What the hypnotist must do is focus on the past, back to the time when the subject first decided to become a smoker. That point, the exact moment that smokers, almost invariably children of no more than fourteen, often as young as ten, the children started to hypnotize themselves into becoming smokers.

It is my firm belief that every smoker, every single one, is in a state of hypnosis. They hypnotized themselves into becoming smokers, as after all, any hypnotist worth his or her salt will tell you that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. It is not a capturing process as the old Dracula movies would suggest, but a leading process. In other words, the hypnotist leads the subject into a state of mind wherein the subject accepts and internalizes the suggestions of the hypnotist. But the hypnotist is not issuing commands, only offering suggestions that the subject may or may not choose to follow.

When someone tries to quit smoking after a decade or more after starting, they most often fail, and then believe it is because they lack the will power to overcome the addiction. Most see it as a weakness in their character. This is not true. What is true is that their inability to stop smoking by simply exerting their will is a testament to the commitment they made to themselves to become a smoker in the first place. They hypnotized themselves to start smoking, and they must reverse that hypnosis at the subconscious level to end it. To quit smoking, to stop smoking successfully and never desire to smoke again takes returning the person to the psychological state they were in before they committed to become a smoker.

I know there are those who smoke who will say, “I am not hypnotized!” But have they ever been hypnotized? Do they even know what being hypnotized feels like? Tell me this. Would anyone who is not in an altered state of consciousness (which takes them a step away from reality) knowingly take a chemically treated poison weed, wrapped in chemically treated poisonous paper, light it on fire and breath the toxic fumes from that fire as often as two hundred times per day (twenty cigarettes times ten drags from each) every day of their life for ten, twenty, thirty years or more, knowing that the end result may well be a painful, costly and prolonged death, and believe that they are experiencing some sort of “pleasure”, pay dearly to do that, and not be in a state of hypnosis?

No one starts smoking because they want to enjoy the taste of a burning cigarette. No one I have ever heard of enjoyed that first cigarette, especially after inhaling that first time. I know I didn’t. I became instantly nauseous and nearly threw up. I was dizzy and at ten years old, decided that smoking was not for me.

Then throughout the day, include a number of those old DIY-disaster favourites; “Rome wasn’t constructed in a day y’ recognize” and “when you’re a nit-picker it takes a bit longer than normal”.

These may have the preferred result as well as enable you to restore some semblance of respect from your household – in any case you have my sympathies and I hope that by reviewing this next write-up your problems will certainly quickly be over.

The devices to use

Worktops are available in a variety of materials but for this write-up I shall be focusing on the installment of laminate tops as they are the most commonly utilized. For products such as, granite, corian and also stainless-steel that are fitted by experts, this will certainly be a helpful reference, as templating is needed for them all and also much of the regulations for the installation of laminate tops will certainly be appropriate.

Below are the devices you will certainly require for the setup of laminate tops


  • jigsaw
  • Circular saw
  • Airplane or Electric planer
  • Combination Square
  • 2 Saw Horses
  • Clamps
  • Worktop Theme (for Mitres).
  • 1/2 inch Router as well as straight blade.
  • Concealing Tape 50mm broad.
  • Silicone Sealer of an ideal match colour.
  • 10mm spanner.
  • Worktop screws.
  • File.
  • Varnish or PVA Adhesive (for cut-outs).
  • Tape.

Action up!

It is necessary to preserve an even overhang from the leading edge of the closets and also this is the target to go for in the right fitting of all worktops. As an instance, a 600mm worktop needs to overhang a 560mm closet by 40mm. It might not always be feasible to accomplish excellence in this regard and also + or – 5mm is acceptable. For the purpose of this article I will assume a three-sided application that needs two worktop joints is called for.

Make a decision initially which means the joints need to run. Keep in mind at this stage to prevent joint distance to a sink wherever feasible. Each worktop ought to be reduced 50mm oversize as well as, when taking into consideration the 20mm overhang required at the end of the cupboards, you need to include 70mm to total closet size.

Ensuring an also overhang.

Following task is to scribe the worktop to fit the altitude to which it is to be set up. You have to initially scribe the depth (front to back) if fitted up against a grey worktop kitchen wall. Remember initially to examine you have an even overhang along its length as well as if at this phase if the overhang is more than what is needed due to disproportion along the wall length, don’t stress, this will certainly be taken care of following.

To scribe the worktop, I discover that a compass provides the very best outcomes, particularly the older type metal one with a lengthy unhampered point. You may purchase them at an excellent stationers however I find they are best acquired from your kids’s pencil instance. Concealing tape will certainly show vital if your worktop is a dark colour however I use it whenever now no matter the color as I locate that when reducing along a pencil line used straight to the job top, the sawdust released by the jigsaw often tends to get rid of the line.

So the worktop remains in location with an even overhang and you have applied covering up tape along the depth to be scribed. You have to now open up the compasses pencil and also indicate match the best gap between the worktop and also wall. Transfer this to the worktop by running the compass along the wall maintaining it identical thus leaving a pencil line on the concealing tape. You are currently entrusted to the shape of the wall surface transferred to the worktop and this ought to be reduced with a jigsaw unless it is so very little that an aircraft will be adequate.

Certainly all the above can be neglected if your wall surfaces are rather straight and also flush yet in my experience this is a rarity and your own reasoning will certainly tell you whether the void left is acceptable or not. My very own yardstick for a wall to worktop optimum void would certainly be no greater than 3mm.
