    STOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKINGSTOP SMOKING

    One laser treatment in 1998 wasall my husband, who had smokedfor 35 years (3 packs a day),needed to stop smoking rightthere and then. I was amazed!He had tried to quit before and itwas so stressful for all of us, Itold him to please please startsmoking again. After histreatment in 1998, he not onlystopped, but he stopped withoutthe awful stress that we hadseen with other attempts. Thatis when I knew what I had to do.

    I decided that I had to help smokers and their families inconquering this powerful enemy. At Laser Therapy, I havehelped hundreds and hundreds of people quit smoking with justone treatment. They have come from all walks of life, and havetried a plethora of different methods only to relapse to smokingonce again. Many have told me about patches andpharmaceuticals they used and the troubles they had with them.There were also scores of loved ones who were affected in anegative manner because of anxiety issues and the stress thatsometimes comes with quitting. I have helped those who hadall but given up hope. Ive helped those that didnt even wantto quit for themselves but only for their loved ones. I am notagainst any method that will help a person succeed in theirquest to quit. My only question is, why not try something thathas an 85% success story, that is non-evasive and has zeroside effects? If, within six months of your treatment, forwhatever reason, you need to or would like to come back in,you can have a free booster. Of the few people that do comeback for a booster, it is near100% effective. And greatnews, Flex spendingreimburses for this treatment!I take great pride in knowingthat I had something to do tohelp someone be successful intheir goal to stop smoking. Itwarms my heart. Please visitmy website www.smokefreetimes.com to readtestimonies of others successstories and learn more aboutmy practice.~All the best, Susan Redhead,Laser Therapy

    This weeks athlete of the weekis a two sport athlete who has astrong passion for basketball.Jenna Horton, a senior at AverillPark High School, began playingbasketball when she was inkindergarten. Jennas brother,who has played basketball hisentire life, was the one to initiallyget her into the game. Horton fellin love with the sport quickly, andit has been a huge part of her lifeever since. Now, after a longjourney of early morningpractices and vigorous condi-tioning, Jenna has finally reached

    her final year on the Varsity team and we know its going to bea good one. Jennas position is the point guard, and she isdefinitely a thrill to watch on the court. Her favorite part aboutit is being able to play the game she loves with the girls whohave become her second family. Games for Horton are extremelyintense and a great event to be part of. If anyone knowsdedication when it comes to sports, its Jenna. Along withpracticing hard six days a week during the season, Hortonmakes a huge effort to stay in shape in the off-season as well.She runs Varsity track in the spring and also plays for AAUbasketball, a premier league. Being a dedicated athlete meanssacrificing your time by putting in extra work in the off-seasonand working hard in every game and practice, says the athlete.Jenna finds a lot of support and inspiration from her family. Hersisters and brother have guided her throughout her life andhelped her to become the person she is today. Also, Jennasparents have always been there to support her through thethick and thin, and she could not thank them enough for all thatthey have done. This year, Horton is taking Forensics,Participation in Government, Chic Lit (Womens Literature),Writers Workshop, Economics and Spanish. She plans to attenda four year school to major in psychology, though she isundecided as to where she would like to go. Off the courts, andoutside of the classroom, Horton is just like any other teenager.She loves to spend time relaxing with her family and friends.We wish Jenna and the rest of the Girls Varsity Basketball teamthe best of luck in the remainder of their season!
