  • Can we smoke and vape during an open air church service in England. We are 15 - 16 years old?

    A few boys and girls from our high school are planning on going to the open air church songs of praise service on our village green this Sunday. A few of us smoke cigarettes (tailor made) and vape though, and we were wondering if it would be OK to smoke/vape during the service if we stand towards the back and if we huddle together with our song sheets so the smoke will just get blown across us and not other people. We can have a drag in between the verses of the hymns and songs. We can also blow the smoke across our non smoking friends while we are singing. Last year nearly everyone who was standing towards the back were smoking so we won't be the only ones!

  • Has anyone had an experience with chantix?

    I've been a pack a day smoker for about 10 years now. I've tried to quit smoking a few times in the past using the cold turkey method and the longest I've gone smoke free was around 3 weeks only to start smoking again. Getting through psychological withdrawals are the most difficult parts for me. I want to strive to become smoke free for the rest of my life this time around. I just spoke to my doctor a few days ago and talked to him about chantix and got it prescribed, I haven't started using it yet and I have no idea what to expect from it. If you've ever used it before or have any knowledge about it, what are some pros and cons about it? How long should I use it for before giving up smoking? Also, if you have any general advice about quitting smoking, that would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you!

  • How many hours of sleep do you get?

    How does a night owl turn into a morning bird? All my life I normally stay up late and wake up at the last minute. My old job I had to be in at 9AM and woke up at 8AM to rush to leave. I start two new jobs and school and have to wake up at like 5:30AM. Not sure what to do, I don't like coffee, I try to take sleeping pills to fall asleep earlier but when I wake up I feel tired during the day. How do I go to bed earlier and wake up earlier? How long does it take to get into the habit of something new? Lol

  • Why would the nurse have asked me this during a blood drive?

    I gave blood a few weeks ago, and the nurse had talked to me and gotten my information beforehand so she knew my name and all that, but then sometime while she about to draw blood, she said "What's your full name?" I responded, but was confused as to why she asked me that if she already knew it. Did she ask me that as a consent thing or something? Thanks!

  • Question about doctors?

    I went to the doctor's office some time ago and requested a sleep study for sleep apnea. She brought out a sheet of paper and asked me questions and afterwards then told me the sleep study wouldn't be necessary. My family has been after me to get one done because of my snoring. I have had to tell them that it was pointless to request one from my doctor. The most stupid part about that appointment was she expected me to know what to say in response to the questions. I live by myself so how am I to know what I'm doing or not doing in my sleep? Years ago I know that I sleepwalked on occasion because 1 time I woke up at the front door, a second time I woke up sitting on the toilet, and a third time I woke up in the hallway. Thankfully that stopped a long time ago. I wouldn't of known if I hadn't woken up when I did. If I am really tired I have a hard time falling asleep because sometimes I feel like I am not inhaling. I do get tired in the day and take 1 to 2 hour naps. I do on occasion wake up periodically in the middle of the night. Thankfully there is a new doctor who would be happy to get me scheduled for the sleep study. He won't be like my old doctor who refuses to order a much needed test. And hopefully I can get better sleep so I won't need naps.

  • What does it mean when you have to go back for multiple blood tests?

    My boyfriend had been feeling generally unwell so went to the doctors & they told him to come back & get a blood test. He got a phone call 2 days after saying he needed to go back & get them redone so he did! Today he got a phone call saying he needs to go back in 4-6 weeks to get them taken again. Does anyone know why they need to do this many blood tests & leaving a 4 week gap? In the last few days he has drastically improved but still isn’t 100 percent, his first results showed up inflammation, protein in the blood & also something to do with his liver. The doctors haven’t explained anything so we don’t really know what’s going on! Any help appreciated.

  • I can't get myself to go to bed?

    Over the past few months I've had trouble going to sleep. But it's not like trouble falling asleep, it's just that I can't get myself to actually get in bed and try to sleep. It's like I lack motivation to go through my night routine and go to bed and I'll do anything else instead. I eat or watch videos or listen to music or even just sit on the floor of my bathroom staring at the wall instead. It's resulted in me going to bed around 3 or 4am every day, which has been affecting my mind and my mood during the day negatively and I just want it to stop. I want to sleep but I just can't get myself to. How can I fix it and start going to bed earlier??
