Quit Smoking the Easy Way – Sharing Our Experience (2020 update)

xsmoking

I am happy to report that this January marks 7 years since I last smoked a cigarette. An accomplishment I am very proud of and I am going to share with others who are attempting to quit smoking but struggling with the task. So if you are a non-smoker you might move on to another site, but then again you might wish to share this site to someone you know that is attempting to quit smoking.
I found that when I decided to quit, I created the intention to quit smoking, and focused on the task at hand the solutions came my way quickly.

2019 Update: In January 2013 we were diagnosed with COPD Level II, which was nodules in the lungs (CT Scan), but too small to biopsy. They said that they needed to do a CT Scan every three months to monitor and if in December the nodules are big enough then they would do a biopsy, and 99.99% start Chemotherapy immediately. The appointment was booked ahead of time for three hours. This is how sure they were. So the 2nd CT scan showed minor growth. The third showed same as the 2nd. Then the final CT scan showed that 95 % of the nodules were gone. Yes gone! The doctors said “This never happens! COPD does not get cured, but you no longer have COPD!”. My pulmonary doctor said “You can fire me. You no longer need me.” To this day every doctor who looks at my chart says the same thing “This never happens!” ans ask me what I did to cure my COPD. I am a Reiki Level II Healer and every night I sent healing energy to my lungs and entire body. I said 10 Hail Marys along with the healing. (I wanted to cover all bases) Thats it. I totally believe there are some things we can self heal.

I was smoking one pack a day at the time, and I was going though a severe chest cold which seemed to a fairly regular event at back then. I also had been smoking for over five decades, yes folks, more than fifty years without ever seriously attempting to quit. So here is my solution to quitting which turned out to be easier than expected.

First I met a doctor that had organized a group of folks that under her supervision had quit smoking using a medication named Wellbutrin. The instructions were one pill a day for three days and then start with two pills a day and continue to smoke. When the third day arrived I had already cut down from 20 to 15 cigarettes a day. I found that I had a reaction to taking the second pill and the doctor said to just stay with the one a day. Within 10 days I was at 3 cigarettes a day and seemed to get stuck at three. (Ask your doctor about a class or a recommendation)

Then one day I was on my Facebook page when I saw a symbol on the right side that was a cigarette with a red crossed “X” over it. I stared at the symbol because I never click on those “pages you need to visit” symbols, but I went with a gut feeling and clicked on it. I then went to a page about quitting smoking by Alan Carr and it led me to a PDF download of a book named “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking” written by Alan Carr in 1985. I downloaded the file and read the book in one sitting. I have not smoked a cigarette since completing the book. (Thank you Allen)

What this book did for me was to point out that all the thoughts about why I liked smoking or why that cigarette with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning tasted so good, or yeah there is a chance of getting cancer, but not me, etc. The answer is those thoughts are coming from your ADDICTION! Yes your addiction is pointing out how much you enjoy smoking and how special you are for smoking without any issues and of course you are so special that cancer is not an option.

So the actual quitting was easy. I found the tough part was about 2-3 weeks later when I felt an urge for a cigarette when a situation occurred that when I was smoking, would smoke a cigarette. I have talked with other people who said this was the part that when they felt some stress, they automatically went back to smoking thinking they would attempt to quit at a later date. (They rarel do) My though was “I did not quit smoking to go right back to it!” So what I did was I immediately noticed the situation that was causing the urge and then stopped what I was doing. I sat down and started a simple meditation where I focused on my in and out breath knowing that the urge would pass in about 20 seconds. Sure enough, it did and the next time the same situation came up the urge was non-existent. I did this ever time I had the smoking urge and eventually it was a rare event.

These days focusing on your breathing during a meditation is called “Mindfulness Meditation” and classes on how to do Mindfulness Mediation are being offered by most hospitals across the country (For a fee). If you are luck enough to live in or near Redwood City California the Insight Meditation Center offers classes for free (Donations are accepted). Check their web site for more information

If you are interested in on-line classes here is a link to the Google Mindfulness on-line course, yes folks, Goggle has a course on mindfulness and from what we understand they support their employees in using this method to meditate. You even get a certificate when you complete the course.

Magical Rainbow Lyft Ride

We have mentioned before that before we book a Lyft or Uber ride we ask the Universe for a driver that we need to meet, even though  we like meeting them all.  So yesterday after a great Lyft ride with Davy to Menlo Park CA for a doctor appointment which was great news, we asked the Universe for a amazing return return Lyft ride.  Normally when we hit to button we get a Lyft ride quickly but this time there was a hesitation.  We thought “Interesting, this is going to amazing ride.  It’s really searching for the ride.”  Then the message “Your Lyft driver will be here in 9 minutes.”.  Again, interesting because most rides in Menlo are 2 to 3 minutes away.  “Your diver is Karen in a Toyota Corolla.”  So we waited, not with anticipation but with a bit of excitement.

Sure enough up pulls Karen and we start chatting like we have know each other forever,  Turns out she is one of the original Lyft drivers from when Lyft launched in the Bay area six years ago.  Now she is driving part time on and off.  As we drove along chatting up a storm the route goes from Menlo Park to the Dumbarton Bridge to cross the San Francisco Bay at the south end.

As we turned on Marsh Road toward the bridge we both noticed full rainbows to our left over San Francisco and in front of us over the East bay.  The rainbow in front of us was dim at first but as we drove toward it and was growing more defined as we neared.  It was a “wow” moment and the rainbow remained all the way across the bridge and it was like we drove into it.  Karen said “There were rainbows around when my son was born and on his first birthday.”  As we drove along we mentioned our blog site and that we wrote about a NDE we had when we were younger and to our amazement Karen shared the fact that she also had a NDE (Near death experience) when she was in a car accident.  She said she was hovering above the accident watching everything that was going on.  She saw her friend that was with her pick up a child and run down the road.  Then she heard a really load screaming and it turned out to be her pinned under the car and she thought “Do I want to return to this noise?” When she returned she told her friend all about it.  (Note: Karen I hope we got tis right).  Now we were sharing that moment in a rainbow moment.  We love how meeting people and sharing has become our standard operating procedure (SOP). The rainbows remained all the war to my stop.

So folks, even though we don’t usually share our daily routine, but this was beyond amazing and it just goes to show if you don’t open up and share your experiences with the people around you, you might miss out in movements like this.  We will not forget this Lyft ride and any of you in the Bay are that get Karen for a Lyft ride you now have a topic of conversation.  Be sure to tell her you saw the story here!

We wish to thank the Universe for that great ride and to thank all of you for supporting our site.  Our blessing go out to all.

We have nothing else to add right now except to “Live peacefully and share the love.”

Happy New Year 2020 from the AlAboutNothing Team

The team at AlaboutNothing wishes everyone out there in cyberland a very Happy New Year 2020 and we are optimistic that this coming year will be one the POTUS wished never happened.

Something we do annually is a “New Year wish” list, but instead of listing of several items, we poll all the team members for one line.  We then submit all the answers and then take a vote.  The winner this year comes from a slogan used in years gone by and it is:

You are NOT alone!!

We have nothing else to add except once again, Happy New Year and stay safe.  We also want to thank everyone for visiting this site and we send blessings out to all.

Merry Christmas 2019

All of us here at Alaboutnothing send out a huge MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone we know and everyone we will know.

We do believe in the saying that some may consider a cliché, but we do believe that “Give and you will receive back may times over.”

We will be on Santa Clause watch and tracking his progress on Twitter.

We have nothing to add except to ask you to keep the thought “Peace on earth and good will to man.”  Many blessing go out to all of you and especially to the men and women serving this country in foreign lands,  If it wasn’t for them, we might not have the freedom to celebrate like we do.

Week After Thanksgiving 2019 and Other Stuff

Howdy folks!  Did you have a great Thanksgiving?  We did and the turkey and fixings were perfect.  This year has been awesome so we gave thanks for everything we received and all the people we have met on our journey.  Then add this great energy being sent by the Universe and everything is right with the Universe.

We did some research about this new energy and found that the energy itself is to assist us in clearing our spirit so we can get clear.  Yes, get clear, like we always preach LOL.  Once clear, it’s up to us to become the “true” us.  Were you your “true” being you over Thanksgiving?  Only you know who you’re “true” you is so were you “true” to yourself and are you now are being “true” to yourself every moment?  OR did you cave in and not tell Auntie Gertrude how ugly her Christmas sweater is?  Your “true” self would have told the truth because that is what this is all about.  So you think the sweater is ugly, be yourself and tell her the truth.  She will understand and even if she doesn’t, she will know you are being yourself.  If she gets pissed, just detach and know her anger is hers, not yours because you told the truth. Let’s project: Auntie Gertrude wore her ugliest sweater to see who would have the guts to tell her the sweater is ugly. Since you did, she smiled and you will now be in her will for her millions.  (Remember where you got this advice when you get the bucks)

The new energy will continue to grow for those who keep procrastinating about being their “true” self”. The way the Universe looks at this is you have been though many lives and you came in to this life to take all you have learned and apply it now.  Meditate and visualize all the energy you have ever given away and bring it back to yourself now, in this moment, because my friends you all are powerful spirits.  We all are here to change the world now, not later, but now.  This was why we ended our last life early so we could get in this Soul Group that is going to change the world and bring all the 5th dimension souls to ascension.  The truth will brings love to all.  Everyone we meet feels like we have known them forever, because we have, and we are just continuing a conversation that has lasted for thousands, maybe even a few million, years. So meditate and become one with yourself.  Love yourself and feel your vibration grow.  Everyone else loves you, so why not join in?  We see you and know that you will join the rest of us in “cleaning up this swamp”.  If you’re wondering what the end result will be after ascension all we can say is Earth will be healed and we will live in an Atlantis type community.  No more talking verbally, we will converse though thoughts.  Want dinner? Think it and you will have it.  Want to go across the world to visit a friend?  Think it and you will go.  Just like now where words matter, thoughts will matter.  By the way, the souls not in the 5th dimension will be removed by the planetary spirit guides.  (It won’t be pretty)

Just think about it.  Every decision you have made since you started this journey brought you to this moment.  To reading our words and knowing we are right here with you supporting you and encouraging you every moment.  We love you dear one.  Remember that when any soul in our group raises their vibration it raises the vibration of all the souls in our group.  With this new energy being sent by the Universe we can feel it, which is rare, so enjoy it and know that we will change the world together because we are connected to all that is and our power is beyond anything that may attempt to stop us.  Make sure to have fun along our journey and spread your love everywhere you go.  When we came in this group we had a “mission” to complete and many have already completed theirs, and now it’s our turn. “Let’s do this!” (Borrowed from Curse of Oak Island)

So my friends we once again thank you for the support and even if you are not supporting us we will not turn you into a frog.  (Maybe)  By our next post we hope to feel a huge increase in this awesome energy from all of our friends becoming their “true” selves and increasing their vibrations accordingly.

We see all of you out there and are sending many blessings.

We have nothing to add at this time and instead of listening to a meditation video we are listing to classic rock and roll.  Rock on!

Peace, Love, and Light to all.  Oh by the way, we are considering touring the country next year and naming the tour “God Bless You!”. (Subject to change) because we are also looking at a trip to Japan to study Zen)  We will let the Universe decide.

Massive Energy Surge Coming – 11/11 Portal Opening

Hello folks. Hope the energy we sent did some healing for you because from today until the end of the year there are going to be some big time energy surges coming from the Universe.  On Monday 11/11 a energy portal will be opening called “11:11 Gateway Activation”.  11:11 represents easy access to the higher realms of spirit and all of you currently in the 5th Dimension can support your ascension process, expand your consciousness, and tap into profound soul insights and self-healing.

Our sources calls this “codes of awakening” and this equates to letting go of the old and infusing your life with the energy of spiritual new beginnings.  Actually you have no choice because it’s going to happen but if you initiate additional energy to go along with the new energy you will get amazing results.  You can let go anything that has been and is standing in your way and blocking you off from aligning and embodying the most vibrant possibilities in your life. However, it’s up to you to claim them!  Tune in with us and get them.  Your vibration will expand your self healing, higher awareness, and expanded states of consciousness.  We will be expanding our collective consciousness we received just the other day.  All you do is download the highest levels of your full soul light.  You will have infinite possibilities available to you on your ascension path.

Highlights:

>> Expand into your Divine Consciousness

>> Bask in coherent crystalline energies.

>> Manifest incredible blessings in your present life experience.

>> Tap into the infinite field of Divine love and peace.

>> Raise your vibration.

>> Embody peace, blessings, and light.

>> Restore the highest template of your soul truth.

You will release all your old energies and open up to the new energies.  Without the portal you might be working on the clearing for months or even years.  This is a great opportunity to get this done immediately.  From 11/11 on the energies are going to be coming fast to us, especially feminine energies, which are at an all time high until 2020.  We hope you all have rested over the last few months like we did.  Once we found out that there was a lag in the Universal energy and we were suppose to take it easy over several weeks we found out this was coming.

A great source we use for weekly updates is a site by Molly McCord who is an intuitive astrologer and we subscribe to her blog posts.  So far she has been spot on with the current energies coming our way.  We strongly suggest you subscribing to her.  She deals mainly in energies and speaks very clearly when talking about the energy.

This coming Friday 11/15 we are going to get our chart professionally done for 2020 by Debra Infante (dinfante@sedona.net).  It will be a Vedic chart which is the most accurate astronomical view of the planets.  The chart will be for 2020, but we will use it as a guide to the energies and not adhere to what it says for example.  If on a given day it says you will get up in a bad mood and have a terrible day.  This is all about choice, even though it says we will have a bad day our choice is like everyday when we choose to have an awesome day.  Using a chart as an excuse to something you did is lame and we have seen people do this. We call them on it when they do it these days. J (Debra is highly recommended)

Tomorrow (Saturday) we will be attending a world wide hour long meditation via telephone meeting.  The meditation is based on the book “The Seven Sacred Flames” and we all will be sending healing energy to Mother Earth and to our Universe and all other Universes.

Just the other day when we were researching the 11/11 portal (Yes researching!  Amazing huh?), we came across an article that said the new energies have been noticed by astrologers and the ones observing the black hole in the Milky Way noticed that there was light emitting from the black hole.  This has never been observed before and they have no idea what is going on.  In our opinion, they never do know what is going on exactly, they deal in theories. (Don’t get us going on this LOL).

So folks, we welcome several new subscribers and hope you have a good time on our site.  We are sending blessings to all of you out there in cyberland.  Thank you for your support.

We have nothing else to report, except if you plan on using the portal of energy on 11/11 it’s a great time to get rid of karma from the dark side and keep the good stuff.

Reiki Healing Energy Send to Subscribers

Filed under: General Nothing — alaboutnothing @ 12:20 pm

To our dear friends that subscribe to our posts over the years and currently. We are going to do a Reiki Healing Energy send to all of our subscribers tomorrow October 28 at 11:11 PM PST.

Because we are Reiki Level II practitioner’s we can send energy long distance and our intention is to send healing energy to each of you. Of course, the energy will go to where its needed in your body. If you do not want the energy, then simply think “I do not want this energy” and you will he bypassed. Or intention for passed energy is for that energy to go to the children at St. Judes Hospital in Memphis TN. If you do wish to receive the energy, then think “I wish to receive this Reiki healing energy” and since you read this, your done.

This send is in celebration of a new moon and the collective moving into Scorpio energy, which will be a clearing of the old energies and replacing them with new living energy.

We have nothing else to add at this time except to thank all of you for supporting our site.

Vacation Over (Rested Soul)

Filed under: General Nothing — alaboutnothing @ 3:33 pm

Around September 10 when we completed our journey of raising our vibration and moving into the fifth dimension we assumed (never assume) that our energy would kick up. Instead to our surprise it was the opposite. We felt like we were walking in waist deep mud. Everything seemed to be moving in slow motion. We were taken aback and it did throw us off balance. We can usually figure out what is going on but this time it wasn’t just our balance, it was everything around us. We then meditated and balanced our chakras, did an energy detox, and cleared our aura. Nothing worked so we figured “This to shall pass.” Two days went by and were still in the “mud”. So we were a bit shaken because we had not experienced being in a “rut” for so long. Finally we asked the Universe for some help and we asked why this energy was so weired?

And the Universe came through (as always). When we are surfing through Tou Tube the subject matter is usually the same because we like the flying, people are awesome, driving in Russia, etc. themes. Then out of the “blue”, like comes a link that we would have been using 20 years ago when we were “in to” astrology. So this was our answer and a reminder of using astrology as a spiritual tool. The link was to a intuitive astrologer pod cast and her name is Molly McCord. This was so right on it immediately got our attention and subscribed to her sight. (We strongly suggest you subscribe because she is awesome). Molly nailed the reason we were in the “mud” and basically it’s because we have been working so hard in getting our energy and vibration into the 5th detention it was time for a rest. Time to step back and enjoy completing the task. Clean up some of our minor stuff that we put aside in our quest.

Thank you Universe! When we found this site we were also informed as to what is going on. The feminine energies are in full control and will be until Jan 2020. Libra energy is at an all time strength and now that we are moving into Scorpio, Libra will start to wane and because Scorpio is in the feminine realm its stronger then usual.

This was weeks ago and we are once again moving forward, so the vacation is kinda over. As usual we are surprised by how many it all works and how the collective works. If you compare what’s going on in this world, and compare it to the astrology aspects, it’s amazing how it all is in sync.

So my friends thank you for supporting our site and we send our blessings to all. We have made some time to meditate on the issues on the middle east and the Kurds and we send healing, love, and for a peaceful solution that will save lives.

We have nothing to report at this time but we are really enjoying the available energy that all have access too.

New Amsterdam Season 2 – Tuesday September 24 (Finally) / Misc

We have waited what seems like forever for season 2 of New Amsterdam.  From the first episode in season 1 we were addicted and every episode had our 100% attention.  On the final episode was so well written and acted we had to keep reminding ourselves that this was a TV show.  It was so engrossing we had to watch it twice.  Then after the final season 1 nothing was announced about season 2.  Every few months we checked and until about three weeks ago season 2 was announced.  We wonder why the extra long wait?  Anyway it’s finally back and we are looking forward in this moment for episode 1 season 2  If you have not heard or watched this show it’s one of our three “must watch” shows along with The Curse of Oak Island and Trump’s Impeachment hearings.

Editorial:

We received an email that asked why we don’t like the commentators on The Golf Channel?  What we said is we don’t like when they bring up just about every negative event about players.  We tune in Golf and just about every other sports event to see the top athletes perform at the highest level.  No drama needed like many commentators attempt to create probably because they are below standard when it comes to “expert” analysis and most of them are “over the hill” athletes.  Some are good, but the “low life” slugs are easily pointed out by just listening.  When we tune in to golf its usually to watch Tiger Woods and we don’t need statistics like 47 tournaments ago on hole number 6 at Pebble Beach Tiger missed a six foot putt when Tiger is about to hit a six foot putt in this moment.  Maybe it’s because the commentator is jealous of Tiger and they quit golf when Tiger was in a tournament with them and Tiger beat them by 20 strokes.  They probably tried to change their swing to come back and beat Tiger but they screwed up their entire games and had to quit for good.  Now they can just watch and make negative comments about players that beat them a long time ago in a place far away.   When we watch basketball we like watching Curry nail three pointers and the Golden State Warriors playing as a team.  We don’t watch much baseball until the playoffs, it’s simply to boring.  If we watch any sport we want to see the best spirit of the game being being played.

Thanks to all our supporters and it’s been an amazing three weeks of this new energy moving us all to connecting with each other.  Every moment is an adventure.  We love it!  How about you?

We have nothing to add at this time except to once again say thank you and send many blessings.

Our Head Cold Remedy and How to Kick Up Your Energy

Cold Remedy:

We quit smoking seven years ago and we have not had any kind of a head cold or plain cold since then.  When we were smoking we had a major head cold about every few months, so of course quitting smoking is a must.  But seven years is a long time and we even have medications that lower our immune system, yet we have not had a cold.  So here is our secret and we are sharing it because we wish all of you to be head cold free. Please feel free to send this to all your friends, family, strangers, aliens, and others.

The key is to keep your nasal passages clean. Breathing though your nose collects dust and germs’ so cleaning is a must.  When we feel a tiny nasal drip we kick into action.  You’re probably thinking “Nettie Pot” and we have talked to others that get great results from a Nettie Pot, but sticking the spout of a pot up our nose and squirting “stuff” up into our nasal passages is right up there with an enema, so we pass on that and go natural.

First we get a box of soft tissues like Kleenex, but any kind will do, even toilet paper.  We sit in a comfortable chair and start up our ancient desk top and go to You Tube.  Search for “Ellen Teacher Moments” and a list will come up.  “The Ellen” Show has been our favorite since her beginning and the great things she does for people, especially teachers, families needing help, and heroes in general.  So we have a list of her amazing action and from the first one we watch we start to mist up.  Tears start flowing because we can feel the joy in our heart and we especially like the surprise the people feel.  Then on the second one, the mist turns to full blown tears and the nasal passages begin to fill and the joy flows throughout our body.  Then buy the third we let go and plain cry and laugh at the surprised people.  Our nose is flowing like fire-hose squirting water on a fire.  We watch three or four more Ellen videos and our nasal passages have been cleaned from the emotions just watching her help people.   The cars, cash, supplies for schools in need, young talented folks getting help because they created funds for other people in need, people in “Pay Back” mode and feeding the homeless and or others needing the help.  All the awesome stories and Ellen ending by saying “Be kind”.  Great words that we live by.  We have clean nasal passages and have learned some way to help people.  We do take notes for later use.  So to Ellen we say “Ellen you not only helped all those people, but you also are keeping us head cold free and the tissue companies in business!”

Kick Up Your Energy:

When we go out and about we know ahead of time we are about to meet awesome people wherever we go.  Right off we know we are going to get a Lyft driver that we must talk to and learn from.  We seem to connect with each driver from the moment we enter the car.  Because we once drove for Uber we exchange stories and because we get hints from other drivers we pass on that information.  Then we usually start trading personal information and life experiences.  What’s interesting is before we go out we are usually thinking about a subject like the last time we were thinking about going on a cruise or renting an RV and touring the west.  About ten minutes before we left we heard a storey about how the major cruise lines don’t have life guards at the pools and many children have drowned and people do fall off the ship and drown, but the cruise lines never report these events because they fly a flag from a different country than the US.  They don’t even report assaults’ or robberies, so we decided we could wait on a cruise until we can afford a body guard.  Then off we went and the guy driving the car says “As soon as my wife retires we are going to buy a RV and tour the country.  I have been researching this for months.” Bingo!  RV rental!  So we get our answer and discussed the best way to look up what we need and where we wish to go.  The ride seemed like 5 minutes instead of the normal 30 minutes.  We exchanged phone numbers and will keep in touch.  Then when we get out of the car we always say Hello to other people and always say “Have a great day!”  All these connections kick up our energy and hopefully the people we talk to.  Just “Be Kind” and you will get it back ten times more.  Changing a frown to a smile on someone’s face is a great feeling for both of us.  Our goal is to show people they are not alone, we are all connected.  We would like all people to be happy and living a life they choose to live in joy and bliss.  It’s so simple, all we do is choose our life and take action to what we choose.  Send the Universe out intention (in detail) and then forget it knowing it will come to use when we are ready.  Everything is out there for us so go get it!

We have nothing else to report and we are happy to say we are on a cool path to healing so we can RV across the country next spring.  We still have plenty to do, but it’s easy with the help of our guardian angels and Spirit Guides.  They seem to aim us in the perfect direction.

God bless all of you and your families.  Get out there and kick up your energy and see how you can make a difference in the world.  Change a frown to a smile on someone and start a conversation.  They might have a few answers for you or visa versa.  Don’t judge, just do it.
