What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health As I See It: Tobacco and Stress

Pamphlet: Tobacco and Stress

Many people who smoke or use tobacco, do so because of the stress reduction.  However much of this is a false benefit.  For many, the nicotine addiction causes the stress, so of course using nicotine relieves this temporarily, however the long term effect is just the opposite.  Sometimes the stress reduction is related to the activities you might do with smoking, such as taking a break from work.
The exciting part about this pamphlet is the list of alternative suggestion to reduce stress.
I really like the idea of playing with your pet.  You can relax without the cigarette.  Stress reduction can become a life style which includes reading, enjoying music, gardening, meditation, exercise, eating well, getting plenty of rest, and talking over your problems with someone.
