Alternative to smoking cigarettes

We all know that smoking cigarettes is dangerous to your health. People smoke for many different reasons. But smoking cigarettes can cause major health problems, such as, lung cancer, heart problems, asthma, high blood pressure, and many more to mention. Cigarettes contain detrimental ingredients and carcinogens. Smokers don't think about these harmful chemicals and toxins found in cigarettes.

Another concern that smokers should consider is the secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is a combination of the smoke from the cigarette and the smoke exhaled by smokers. It is also known sidestream smoke. It contains much greater concentrations of carcinogens than the mainstream smoke. This harmfully affects those who don't smoke at all.

However, it's good to know that smokers can find some alternatives to smoking cigarettes. Many smokers have successfully quit cigarettes by using electronic cigarettes. There's no ash and no smoke when you smoke e-cigarettes because it's not made of tobacco. It tastes and looks like the regular cigarettes. This is a good alternative and good for our environment.

E-cigarettes can easily be obtained online. You can look up and search online for stores that carry this kind of product.

Warm weather

The husband put our comfortable in the closet yesterday. Apparently, he realized it's getting warmer every day. I really have a feeling that it's going to be hotter this year. I mean, we are already in the mid 60's here on May. What else could I expect on summer. Of course, higher 60's, right? Despite that, I'm looking forward to doing more outdoor activities on summer. I want to take my toddler a walk in the beach during weekdays. And then, he can play in the sand.  It's just going to be me and my little man because his dad works on week days. It's still going to be fun.

Itchy and achy throat

I've been having itchy and achy throat for two weeks now. I am not taking any meds but tea. I drink medicinal or herbal tea to feel better. I really don't want to drink any drug or medicine right now. I just want the natural process to do its job. I've been drinking Traditional Medicinals Organic Lemon Echinacea Throat Coat tea. I hope I'd feel better soon. If I don't get any better until next week I'm going to see my Physician and hopefully, he'll prescribe me some antibiotics. I really do think this is caused by bacteria not virus. But let's see. I cannot really diagnose myself.

It's May! Wow time flies by so fast. I'm excited to meet up my visiting friends from the Netherlands and Arizona and a friend in Los Angeles today. I'll be driving up to L.A in a little bit. It's going to be my first time driving alone for a long trip. The trip from San Diego to L.A takes about two hours. I just hope the traffic is not bad on the way there. I'm going to leave SD at around 10am so I'll be in Redondo Beach at around 12 noon. I'm kind of excited and nervous at the same time. I mean, I've never driven alone for two hours. It's going to be challenging but I pray for a safe travel.
