An old lady was pulled over by a patrolman for speeding When she rolled down her window the officer asked, Do you know you were going 90 in a 45 zone? no I didn't officer. can I have your driver's license? They took it away two weeks ago for a DUI. How about proof of insurance? I stole this car and hacked up the owner and he's in the trunk. The officer pulls his gun and backs away while calling for backup. 6 squad cars arrive and the captain says to the patrolman, I'll take it from here. He walks up to the car and asks for the woman's license. She hands it to him. Hmmmm everything seems to be in order but my patrolman says there's a body in the trunk. Would you please walk back with me and open the trunk? They do, she does. The trunk is empty. He asks her why his patrolman would tell him such a thing and she says that liar? he probably told you I was speeding too.
Let's narrow it down in the terminology department since that's the first area that we can narrow down.
Go to any page to see a picture you want to post. If you search for images by topic such as on google? you cannot get the code from the thumbnails page. You actually have to open the image.You can do that by right clicking on the thumbnail and then choosing open in a new tab or choosing open in a new page.
Hover over the image and right click on either "view image" "copy image location" or "copy." If you choose view image, the code in the address bar will change. you have to copy and paste the address from the address bar to the site.
You do that by having your new blog page open. you can respond/comment with a picture on someone's blog in the same way.
just above the message portion of the blog (below the title if you are writing the blog) see those little symbols above where the text would be? B I U abc, etc?
Left click and open the one far right and it will open another window.
Paste the address from the address bar of the page the picture was on or the image code if you chose copy address in the top line then click ok. The picture will show up in the message area. Then click publish. If it doesn't appear when you click ok, something went wrong.
If you want to post personal pictures you have to have a code. You can open a free photobucket account or upload them to your facebook page and then do do view image and copy the code from the address bar and do the same process as above.
This code only works on the blogs. If you want to post an image on someone's page, you have to get the HTML code. I do that from my photobucket account.
I found out today I have an MRI coming up on the 28th.
They asked me if I was claustrophobic.
I had to think back 50 years to when I was on a bus with suitcases stacked 2 high in the aisle when you couldn't even stand up to stretch your legs for many hours.
I quickly solved that by asking everyone to have their luggage outside their hotel room doors 1 hour before we were to depart and from that point on, and for the next three months of our tour, I loaded 40 peoples luggage UNDER THE BUS INSTEAD OF IN THE AISLE by myself.
Never had claustrophobia again.
This is how I approach problems and solve them.
Look at the challenges of quitting as things that you can solve simply by changing your mind and doing things differently just for that moment
Doing research on MRI's, I found out that the magnets the MRI ses must be kept at Absolute Zero to do their work properly.
Next time you get a craving you don't think you will get through?

How does an MRI scan work?
An MRI scanner can be found in most hospitals and is an important tool to analyze body tissues.
An MRI scanner contains two powerful magnets, which represent the most critical part of the equipment.
The human body is largely made of water molecules, which are comprised of hydrogen and oxygen atoms. At the center of each atom lies an even smaller particle called a proton, which serves as a magnet and is sensitive to any magnetic field.
Normally the water molecules in our bodies are randomly arranged, but upon entering an MRI scanner, the first magnet causes the body's water molecules to align in one direction, either north or south.
The second magnetic field is then turned on and off in a series of quick pulses, causing each hydrogen atom to alter its alignment and then quickly switch back to its original relaxed state when switched off. The magnetic field is created by passing electricity through gradient coils, which also causes the coils to vibrate, resulting in a knocking sound inside the scanner.
Although the patient cannot feel these changes, the scanner can detect them and, in conjunction with a computer, can create a detailed cross-sectional image for the radiologist to interpret.
the urge to smoke. let's break it down without the intended sales pitch.
The ad for the patch claims the patch helps prevent the urge to smoke.
[I used the patch. I used it before I learned one thing about quitting smoking. I used it because of the advertising and the claims made. The second week I forgot to wear it two days in a row. and realized I didn't need it any longer. I didn't join a quit smoking website or learn anything about quitting smoking until after I had stopp ed using the patch.]
So what exactly is an urge?
urge: A strong desire or impulse
desire: a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.
impulse: a sudden strong and unreflective urge or desire to act..
compulsion: an irresistible urge to behave in a certain way, especially against one's conscious wishes.
So I have to ask, do you believe the urge to smoke driven more by nicotine or simply the repetitiveness of smoking?
I believe nicotine drives us to smoke while we are using it due to the physical addiction. I believe the thought of smoking after someone has quit for a period of time comes from memories and emotions connected to the repetitiveness of our daily routine for the many years we smoked.
If an urge is a thought. A nicotine patch will not stop anyone from thinking of smoking.
So in actuality, the patch only helps with the physical addiction. The thinking of smoking must be unlearned.
The repetition of smoking is unlearned by making new memories that don't include smoking or the motions of smoking.
Time is what puts distance between you and smoking, but, you have to allow it.
Common sense beats a manufacturers intent to sell their product if you simply take the time to analyze it.
Once you break it down, there is no overthinking of some mystery that doesn't exist.
There is no more "I used the patch, the lozenges, the gum, an ecig AND NOTHING WORKED FOR ME."
Stop telling yourself you need to smoke. That is the real problem and solution of quitting successfully.
