I had a few smokes today already but after a nap I really feel like I want to quit smoking...I really really need to quit, I've tried several times but it's been sooo difficult!So I think I will try tomorrow.

What are some tips to get through it?

Start your stop smoking plan with START : S = Set a quit date. T = Tell family, friends, and co-workers that you plan to quit. A = Anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting. R = Remove cigarettes and other tobacco products from your home, car, and work. T = Talk to your doctor about getting help to quit. How to quit smoking and manage cravings After quitting, you may feel dizzy, restless, or even have strong headaches because you’re lacking the immediate release of sugar that comes from nicotine. You may also have a bigger appetite. These sugar-related cravings should only last a few days until your body adjusts so keep your sugar levels a bit higher than usual on those days by drinking plenty of juice (unless you’re a diabetic). It will help prevent the craving symptoms and help your body re-adjust back to normal. Tips for managing other cigarette cravings Cravings associated with meals For some smokers, ending a meal means lighting up, and the prospect of giving that up may appear daunting. TIP: replace that moment after a meal with something such as a piece of fruit, a (healthy) dessert, a square of chocolate, or a stick of gum. Alcohol and cigarettes Many people have a habit of smoking when they have an alcoholic drink. TIP: try non-alcoholic drinks, or try drinking only in places where smoking inside is prohibited. Or try snacking on nuts and chips, or chewing on a straw or cocktail stick. Cravings associated with social smoking When friends, family, and co-workers smoke around you, it is doubly difficult to quit or avoid relapse. TIP: Your social circles need to know that you are changing your habits so talk about your decision to quit. Let them know they won’t be able to smoke when you’re in the car with them or taking a coffee break together. In your workplace, don’t take all your coffee breaks with smokers only, do something else instead, or find non-smokers to have your breaks with.

How to quit smoking when you keep losing the motivation to quit?

Every time I try to quit, I always give in. I just simply lose the urge/motivation to quit. I just get like "screw this, I don't care if I get cancer" (Not true, btw, that's just how I feel when I get to that point)

It just feels like this is impossible. :/ Yet, the stupid reality is that it's as simple as not picking up another one.

How to have a good night sleep with allergies blocking my nasal passages?

Every night when I go to sleep my nasal passages block because of dust mites, I also have a cat. I can't even breathe, so then I end up not having a good sleep. Is there anything good out there to use, besides vacuuming the house everyday. Thanks

I do not have bad allergies, but at the moment, I have bad congestion too. for immediate relief, I use a squirt of afrin, and that lasts about 12 hours. be sure that after you squirt it, you lay on your back for about 3 minutes to let the stuff sink in. You can also use salt water spray throughout the night. Hope this helps, and good luck!

How to help a wheezing cough?

I have had a cold for a couple of days now but just today it turned into a cough when I woke up tis morning. By 5:00 pm I had a wheezing cough. It is really annoying and I don't want it to ruin my night as I have to go out for my sisters birthday tea. Is there anything that will help. I can't drive!

Hey Katie, I think this cough can be occurred due to your weak immune system. You should do something for the betterment of your body immunity. I would suggest you to have a glass of orange juice daily; it is good for our health. Also there are capsules called Seacod, which helps to improve the body immunity. It contains Vitamin A & vitamin D with omega 3 components. This Seacod not only improves immunity but also sharpens the brain. For more information on dosage visit and also consult your doctor on the same.

How to stop an asthma attack without an inhaler?

My boyfriend has been having problems with his asthma, but his mom took his inhaler and he doesn't have any insurance to get one, or go to the hospital, since you can no longer get the over the counter. Now he can't breathe and I have no idea what to do. Please help! It's important!

I've found that a cup of hot coffee can help. The caffeine mimics the action of the albuterol in the inhaler, i.e. it will smooth the muscle tissue in the lungs. The smoother the tissue, the easier it will be to cough up any mucus blocking the airways. And instead of panicking and tensing up (which is what I used to do) tell him to try to relax when he coughs. I know it sounds silly and you may think I'm kidding, but have him sit in a chair and slouch while he's coughing, and have him let his belly hang out, like a pregnant belly. That way there is less tension in the abdominal muscles so the cough will be more productive. The key during an asthma attack is to reduce as much stress on the muscles as possible. I've also found that it helps to imagine a wave crashing ashore while coughing. Like when he's coughing and trying to bring something up, have him just slouch in his chair and as he coughs have him imagine the blockage in his chest as a wave that is about to break. I don't know why it works, but as long as it works I'm not going to question why. Good luck and I hope he feels better. Asthma is no fun. Trust me, I know.

How to help a child with asthma sleep better?

Pretty self explanatory a good friend of mine has a son that suffers from asthma and she said it is so difficult to put him to sleep at night and he is uncomfortable. What is something that could help soothe his discomfort? Will a dehumidifier work?

I was always most comfortable laying across a pillow with my head down and my knees tucked under me sort of a crawling position or fetal position if he is old enough 2yrs or older definitely not a dehumidifier as this will only dry out the already thickened secretions try a child formula mentholated rub on his chest before bed it worked for me although a visit to the physician is also recommended if symptoms worsen or do not improve over the weekend.
