New York smoking ban: 10 years on

Smoking bans are becoming more common around the world and New York has just got into double figures! It is great that smoking is becoming less socially acceptable.If governments were REALLY that concerned about protecting people's health surely they would just ban them. Unless they LIKE all the revenue that cigarettes generates for them??

Scotland 'tobacco free' by 2034

What a bold move! It looks like Scotland's drive for independence is forcing them to look at issues in a new way.IF they go solo and have to look after their own out of their own pocket then changes will have to be made. Scotland is traditionally a VERY unhealthy country so it won't take much to bring about some improvement to the country's population.

'Hooker' Helped To Get Off The Ground Through Hypnosis

I have recently had my most intriguing and interesting client and she was very happy for me to share a few details of her experience. She is happy for her experience to be used to inform and educate people who are maybe oblivious to the types of things she, and others, do.Vicky came to me as a failed 'hooker'. She had tried it before and was unable to get over the mental blocks which were preventing her from enjoying the activity she had decided she was going to do.

Friday The 13th - Triskaidekaphobia

It has come round again. Expect your day to be filled with the pessimistic types out there bemoaning their bad luck and blaming the difficulties on Friday the 13th.This type thought process can become even more pronounced in some people and can develop into Triskaidekaphobia - a fear of Friday 13th. For some people this leads to them not doing anything 'risky' on that day.Risky things can include walking under ladders, seeing one magpie or not saying "touch wood" when appropriate. For some Triskaidekaphobia sufferers they just say indoors all day and don't leave the house for fear of what might happen.The vast majority of these Triskaidekaphobia sufferers don't know all the facts though. They have this Halloween-type association with Friday 13th. The Friday 13th horror films that began in the 1980's have further amplified this mistaken belief.13 Being An Unlucky Number Has A Long History

Hypnosis has no negative side-effects. It makes operations quicker, as the patient is able to talk to the surgeon as the operation proceeds, and it is cheaper than conventional pain relief. Since it does not interfere with the workings of the body, the patient recovers faster, too.
