You'll be glad see the day as one ol mixed influences lather than anybody's ill intentions You aren't likely to be overlv tactful, in any case Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Nine ears ago when I was 55 I had been smoking the well known two packs of cigarettes for 35 years, not that there had been enjoyment ot it during the last 10 or 15 years, just habit and the seeming im- possibility ot quitting. No amount of tapering off. no amount ol trying to cut down, no drug store aids had any real effect No advice by doc- tors or friends enabled me to stop the habit Then one night when I went to bed my leg went numb, and even though I sat up and had a shot ot whiskey. 1 had trouble restor- ing the circulation to my leg While all of this was going on, I thought about an acquain- quaitance who had smoked and drank up a storm and was told bv his doctors to quit smoking or "off comes that leg fie didn't quit and oft came the leg Then the doc- tors told him quit or pretty soon ol! comes the other leg Well, he did quit smoking, along with breathing, eating, and living. My conclusion was simple, damn it man, you are killing yourself And for what, something you don't even en- j o y or want Then I transferred mv outrage to a mythical someone else who was Irving to kee me.

It was a feeling of victory I did have a mind, I did have the power to simply laugh at the very thought of giving :n. It was cumulative. Food tasted better than I had remembered for years The throat irritation steadily diminished, the sputum I coughed up paled from a dirty brown to pearly white and gradually decreased If you really want to stop, lust get good and stinking mad at the person who is' laterally killing you Take it as a personal challenge and see what happens. Dear for sharing your experience I agree with you that if. psy- chologically, you are able to direct your hostility toward cigarettes and consider them as an outside enemy, that it could help you kick the habit. Individuals devise different ways ol helping them to quit and your history is one way which works for some people. I might add that it certainly is true that individuals with cir- culatory problems to the legs, who continue to smoke, can. and do, lose their legs as a result ot their cigarette habit.

LONDON (Reuter) A Jamaican-born woman was so upset by her husband's con- tinual demands for sex that she fed him broken glass, a court here was told Monday. Monica Lurline Watson said she hoped the broken glass she put in her husband's breakfast would make him ill enough to be sent to hospital so that should get a rest. "He's always wanting sex- noon and night. And even when he is on nights he sometimes comes home in the middle of the night demanding Mrs. Watson told police She was placed on probation for three years after pleading guilty to attempting to cause her husband grievious bodily harm from a crane and plunged through the roof of a nearby muffler shop, police said.
