Maintainance badly needed

Post by Darkstar »

I was looking on the main Luxor4u site and I have to say it badly needs sorting. A lot of the information is out of date, and many of the links won't work. I have to say it doesn't give a good impression for first time users, this is not a complaint just an observation I thought needed to be brought to the admins attention.

Yes, Keefy seems to have been absent for some time since his hospital visit and I do hope that he is getting better. Best wishes Keefy :gw:

He is still alive and kicking but not yet back to his old self. He's still keeping off the ciggies.

Stopping smoking must be one of the hardest things anyone can do. (more on that later).

Many things were removed from the main site, in place I was going to put the reviews and ratings for all businesses in Luxor, yet this is more harder than I thought, other things got in the way too, so I did not get round to doing it, hopefully when I am feeling better I will sort the main page out :)

You may not know it Keefy, but addiction to the ordinary ciggi is more so than Coke, and I don't mean coca cola.

If you fail to stop, this can be depressing to know you have failed, however, what you do learn each time you fail, is how easy it really is to stop and the new benefits. That's why the advert say,............Never stop giving up.

Good Luck.

Here is a tip to help quit smoking, break down cigarette butts into a coffee jar add water leave it a few days (giving it a regular shake), and when you need a fag badly, take off the lid and inhale the ' savoury' aroma. It is a disgusting smell that should put you off having one. :up

You can believe this or not, but when I went to my Doctor a few years ago and said I want to stop smoking he said.
"No Way, do not even consider that"...

I think he knows me too well.... :cg

Your doctor knows that you don't smoke, so in order to give up you first have to start. If this is the scenario he is being very sensible with his advice!

Going through the 'agony' of trying to stop smoking. On my 2nd day now...( I know that's not much but for me its a big achievement!!) My secret?? I have a 'stop smoking kit'. It is made up of a packet of Cleopatra and a lighter!!! So every time I feel like a cigarette, Cleo is my only option so i don't bother. Working so far!!!

30+ years of smoking, 2 to 3 packets a day (B&H, Marlboro red) yet I found the nicotine cravings quite mild, yet the other effects like my body is shutting down, the pain, aches etc. is horrendous, this is the only factor that is making me want to smoke (yet so far I have not done so).

Are you drinking enough water? It sounds as though you may not be. And I mean water - not cups of sugar with a hot brown leave infusion added.
