This is where i am going on Tuesday at 1pm for an interview with a lady who runs a smoking cessation group she has asked me not to have her name on the blogs and on any recording as her manager is on holiday and she can’t get a hold of her to get her permission to use her name however her voice and expertise is all i need. which is no problem at all i am just thankful she can help me out.
This is the front page of the website.
The Health Project works with local people to take steps towards better health. We work with local people to identify causes of ill health (e.g. stress) and tackle them (e.g. counselling) and to campaign for better health services.
We run a range of activities and groups that local people can join so they can feel healthier or learn more about how to live healthier lives.
Go to the section about our work to find out about our projects and the services we offer.
If you want to get involved, look at what courses, events and groups we are offering or do you want to volunteer with us? Our Board of Directors are people who contribute their time and knowledge to running the organisation, we are always looking for people with useful skills to join the Board.”
Again i am looking for at least 1 and a half minutes of good useable audio i need to ensure that not only do i get any audio about how they help people stop smokiing but more importantly what happens when someone has a relapse.
Here is some good tips about when you are giving up and getting cravings etc.
Most smokers get cravings. They come from nicotine withdrawal symptoms and the loss of a strong habit – but the good news is that the worst is over after a month or so. Here are some great ways to take your mind of cigarettes and give you a better chance of staying a non-smoker.
Avoid the stress of quitting
- Take a break if you’re feeling irritable. Something as simple as having a drink of water or juice can help
- Try deep breathing – and give your back, neck and arms a good stretch: all great stress-busters
- Laughing is a great stress reducer! Call a friend who makes you laugh, or watch a comedy DVD
- Get some exercise if you can – walking is a great way to get moving
- If you need to put something in your mouth, try sugar-free gum
- If you need to do something with your hands, find something to fiddle with – like a pencil, coin or a puzzle
