Tried Everything To Quit Smoking?

Have you tried Quit Tea? Picture of a box of Quit Tea.

Just about every resource you can find about quitting smoking will tell you that in order to quit you need to replace the bad habit of smoking with another habit. Hopefully a good habit. Like drinking herbal tea :)

It is possible to quit smoking without changing to a good habit…but it is a lot harder and usually takes longer.

What you do is….every time you have the urge to smoke…you drink some herbal tea instead. So you are actually doing something.

Many people say a big part of the smoking habit is the actions involved…the taking it out, lighting it up, inhaling….that occupy your attention and become so routine that you don’t even notice doing them sometimes.

Just stopping takes away the activity…but if you don’t replace it with another activity…you will catch yourself doing the actions without thinking about them….and might just end up smoking again before you even realize it is happening.

That is why replacing the habit with a good habit can be so helpful.

Quit Tea is made of herbs and spices that help you relax and help reduce anxiety and nervousness.

Some of the ingredients are : Valerian Root, Sarsaparilla, St. John’s Wort, Red Clover, Licorice, Cinnamon, Ginger, Burdock, Cloves, Oregano, Fennel, Cayenne Pepper, and Black Pepper.

If you have tried everything else…well trying this tea certainly isn’t going to hurt and it is cheaper than many other smoking cessation aids. And even if it doesn’t help you…it is still good for you!

The folks at Quit Tea are going to be offering one of my readers(US only) the chance to win 2 boxes of Quit Tea, a book called “Quit Smoking with Herbal Tea” and a Quit Tea tumbler.

Quit Tea Tumbler.Be sure and stop by on Monday the 21st to  enter the Summer Heat Giveaway Hop.

Little Monsters Gear – Tees and Onezees For Your Little Monster

Little Monsters Gear – Tees and Onezees For Your Little Monster

Picture of a Little Monsters Tee on a little girl.Little Monsters Gear has the cutest t-shirts and Onezees for kids! The shirts are made of cotton and are printed by hand.

There are lots of cute monsters to choose from too. Some are Fierce and some are Gentle. Each one has a front design and a back design. My favorites are Sweet Pea and Goober.

Each monster has its own personality and comes with a story. Some are adventurous and some are lovable and some get into trouble all the time. Each one is different and you are bound to find one that will suit your child.

Their sizes fit kids up to 8 years old. The onezees are for those up to 18 months. Picture of a Little Monsters Onezee on a toddler.

They also have bibs, burb cloths, and leg warmers that are really cute. Almost makes me wish I had some babies handy just so I could dress ’em up.

And you can get your very own personalized monster too! Just use their monster builder to pick the body, eyes, and mouth of your monster. Choose the name you want your monster to have and submit it to them.

The company was started by a woman who grew up on a large family and got the idea from the names her father called his children.

Happenstance Hobby

One of my favorites is the Happenstance Hobby box.This would be great to have around for when you are bored and don’t really know what you want to do. You could just go check out your box and try the new hobby! Each box come with the essential items needed for the hobby. And if you don’t know what hobby might work…then you can get a box that contains a variety of different things.

If you don’t want one of the standard Template boxes you can fill your own box with items you choose. Or if there is one or two items in a box you don’t like you can have those removed and replaced with something else.

More items can be added to each box as well. You can choose items from their “Creation List” or if there is an item not listed that you think would be really great…You can contact them about it. They will do their best to get it for you IF it will fit in the box and they can still deliver on time.

One of their suggestions in the customized box gallery is for a Feeling Crappy box. It includes  Chicken Noodle Soup, hand sanitizer, some Kleenex, and vitamin C,  amongst other things.

I think that is really neat! That would pretty nice to get when you have a cold or just don’t feel good.
