I think in this situation everyone should be responsible…(Iuliia)

Dear Mario, I saw how deeply you took care of your child in the soap opera and I think you would be a really good father for him. As for me,  I've never had to deal with asthma, but I sincerely sympathize with those people who themselves or their relatives have asthma, because having asthma is a real life difficulty for them. Despite of the lack an experience with this disease now I, like all other people of our planet, am dealing with no less dangerous threat in 2020 that is virus,  called coronavirus. I think in this situation everyone should be responsible and to take more care not only of yourself but of other people too. It means that our top priority these days is to protect people by…

I admire your willpower in the fight against smoking (Iuliia)

Dear Sasha, I admire your willpower in the fight against smoking and understand that even if you really want to quit, you might have difficulties on the way to reach it. I think that the greatest fear you might have is not to cope with all the difficulties in order to get rid of tobacco dependence. But your friend and wife really care about you and help you not to give up. That was new for me to find out that the government actively helps people who are trying to quit by providing free nicotine gum and nicotine patches. I think you are on the right track and sport activities will strengthen your willpower! Sincerely yours, Iuliia

I decided to quit smoking during fasting before Easter. (Anna)

I understand Sasha who found it difficult to quit smoking. Here's my story: 12 years ago I smoked, but not much. I wanted to quit smoking, but I couldn’t. Every year I held a fast before Easter, and this is 49 days. In fasting, you can’t eat animal products, drink and preferably do not smoke. And in one year I decided to quit smoking during fasting before Easter. For 49 days I did not smoke and it helped me to quit smoking forever.   Thanks to God, I got rid of the bad habit!! Anna

another thing that you can do for your friends is help them to quit too…(Luz)

Dear Sasha, I’m happy to know that you were able to quit smoking. You did your best, in consequence now you can taste  Anya's kisses better and her recipes, you can continue helping the hospital children and of course  you can swim again.  That’s fantastic!. I think you have a strong spirit and if you continue doing exercises, you can stay more peaceful and have a longer life. You know, I have never been around smokers, therefore I don’t like to be near them and I feel very uncomfortable when somebody blows smoke in my face.  That’s disrespectful! Now that you quit the cigarettes, another thing that you can do for your friends is help them to quit too, otherwise, you can be a passive smoker if you spend a…

Dear Sasha, I'm glad you left the cigarette, it only hurts your health. Your life will change and you will realize that it was the best decision. My grandfather was a smoker many years ago, until one day he said he was going to quit because that was harmful. Every day he smoked one less and a day came when he didn't smoke anymore. He took a stick and put it in his mouth and pretended that he smoked!! Already it has been more than 20 years that he does not smoke!! Juana Mariel
