2 IOA The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, August 30, 1990 Helen Woodward To just say no to smoking is not always easy. Many tilnes we just substitute one bad habit lor another, but with careful thought, determination and understanding of the process, we can cleanse our bodies fronl the craving for nicotine. Several herbs are helplifl, but completely removing the nicotine from our bodies is the inlportant lacier to renlember. The sooner this sub- stance is eliminated lrom our bodies, the sooner our cravings will dlsaptxear. To break the habit of smoking try chewing lhe flowers of cha- momile. Anthemis nobilis, (Coin positae), is known as the true or common chamomile. The whole plant emits a pleasant scent, most often described as appte. and is of value to the cosmetic, culinary and medical industry. "the flowers, however, retain the quality ingredient to aid in de- toxifytng the system of nicotine. Although the taste appears sweet at first, chewing on tlte rather bitter root of the gentian. gentian offtcinalis (Gen- tlanaceae), is also worthy of con slderatlon in the non-smokinK effort. This exterlsive planl ~roup. nnnlbering aboul 180 species, can be found in all cli- mates with the exception of the extrenles of tile Arctic zones. Most conlnlon to tile lemperale regions and the high mountains, tile prevailing red flowered plant is lound in South Amerit:a and New Zealand while bhle gentians are nlore COIlllnon [O Etlrope. The yellow and white varieties of this veI3, hardy and stalely per eIInia] are considered rare. The nledical vahle of gentians \VaN firs| discovered by Gentius, an ancient King of lllyTia (180-167 B.C.) During the Middle Ages this herbal plant was extensively used as an antidote to poison. The dried roots of tile Frenctl Gentian ts considered of special excellence but tile German vari ely is tile most heavily exported followed by those froin Switzei land and Spain. For those working on the no smoking routine, do remember to drink large quantities of water to eliminate the nicotine from tile bloodstream and take sail- has and steam baths to further deto~fy the body, Military News-- Marine Pvt. Christopher B Workman, son of Fred A. and Sarah L. Workman of Route 4, Frankford, has conlpleted recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina. During the 13-week training cycle, Workman was taught the basics of battlefield survival. He was introduced to the lypical sional standards traditionally exhibited by Marines. Ite participated tn an active physical conditioning program and gained prol]ciency in a vari- ely of nlilitary skills including fil-Sl aid, rifle Inarksmanship and close order drill. Teamwork and self-discipline were emphasized ltlroughout the training cycle. A 1989 graduale of Green- daily routine that he will experio brier East High School, I.ewis- ence during his enlistment andburg, Workman joined the Ma-- studied the personal and profes- rine Corps in April.
