Smoking habit is hard to break
An 18-wheeler driven by 31-year-old Kenneth Ray Ellis of Gainesville

from 1-35 North at an unsafe speed and crashed in front of Rodeo City
Cafe. Ellis was taken to Harris Hospital where'he was treated and
released. Burleson policemen and firefighters were on the scene until
after 1 p.m. helping get the truck unloaded and towed and cleaning up a
diesel fuel leak.

With the new yearofficially rung
in, many smokers are pledging to
kick the habit in 1991. Easy? Not
always, but leaving the pack behind
doesn't have to be as difficult as one
might initially think.
Just ask John Strait, an interven-
tionist at the Psychiatric Institute of
Fort Worth. As a chemical addiction
drug and alcohol counselor, he
KNEW the dangers of his lifelong
cigarette habit better than most
But he couldn't quit.
He couldn't quit Smoking de- i
spite health problems, or that he knew
it was harmful, and in spite of the
urgings of his doctors, friends, co-
workers,jtnd family members.
Strait kn"w his smoking was
totally out of control when he was
hospitalized with a very serious repi-
ratory ailment last spring.
"Everyone knew it was my con-
tant smoking that was the major cul-
prit in my illness," he said. "In fact,
my co-workers used to hide my ciga-
rettes at work so I wouldn't smoke. I
knew that recovery meant quitting
smoking, but this habit is extremely
hard to break."
That's when Strait called the
Eugenia Andrews Counseling ar.d
"I have heard of hypnosis for
relaxation, but like many others,
wasn't sure about changing habits,"
he said. "Wei! let me tell you, I walked
out a non-smoker and a very relaxed
individual. I simply followed the
instructions given and was on my
way to breathing easier, tasting bet-
ter, and free. I was motivated and that
is the key to success."
Hypnosis is a relatively new
approach to helping smokers break

The selection of a "Class Act”
teacher is made by teaching pro-

two or three, a team from

"My mother is a retired school
teacher, so ‘Class Act’ has a very
special and personal meaning to
me,” said Tinsley. “I’m honored
to bring to the public, outstand-
ing ‘Class Act’ teachers. For too
long, teachers have been unsung
heroes, but we’re going to change
that with ‘Class Act’. There are
hundreds of great teachers teach-
ing our children and I’m excited
that the public will get to meet
them on a weekly basis. I’m hop-
ing that this recognition helps
improve the overall image of
teachers and perhaps motivate
young men and women to join
the teaching profession.”

chologist who operates hypnosis clin-
ics in Fort Worth and Cleburne, be-
lieves the method can help even the
most addicted smoker break the habit.
She notes that as Strait said,
motivation is they to success.
”1 had no cravings, no so-called
withdrawlas, no need or intention to
ever pick up a cigarette ever again,"
Strait said. "Friends tell me that I
sound 10 years younger, more ener-
getic, and they are amazed and very
pleased with my success."
Strait's ability to break a lifelong
habit has led others to try hypnosis in
their quest to stop smoking, includ-
ing his wife.
"My stopping smoking had made
a believer of my wife and when she
was ready she mad an appointment,"
he explained. "Now we have a non-

"I have told and encouraged all
my associates and friends to kick the
habit, but only when they are ready. I
can't begin to describe the joy or
accomplishment and self-esteem.
Hypnosis really made a difference in
my life, so do yourself a favor, invest
in your future and health—stop
smoking today. You, too, can be a
healthy non-smoker. This program
really works; it's great."
