To break any addiction you have to be clear in your mind why you want to do so. Knowing why others want you to stop using an addictive substance is not as important as knowing why you yourself should stop using it. Personal conviction is more effective than the wishes and convictions of your parents, spouse or friends in fighting the confusion that develops in tempting situations.

The first step in managing a stressful painful past is to forgive the people who hurt you and leave them in the past where they belong. Do not continue carrying them in your mind and thereby marring your present. Cut the cords of bitterness binding them to your heart and reduce the tension in your life by forgiving and forgetting them so that you can reach forward into your future unencumbered.
If the urge to revenge hinders you from forgiving them, remind yourself that God says vengeance is His and He will repay. (Romans 12:19) Cry out to Him in prayer so that He can deal with all those who have hurt you. Scriptures you can pray include Lamentations 3:59 which asks God to judge your case Himself as He has seen how you have been wronged.
It is surprising how little the medical community knows about progesterone, especially the consequences of a progesterone deficiency. In many cases, these consequences can be prevented with the use of natural progesterone replacement. It is fairly easy to diagnose women with low progesterone levels because these women are the ones who have PMS, severe menstrual cramps, headaches with their periods, and breast tenderness. They will be estrogen-dominant and very often will wind up with complications such as fibroids in the uterus and fibrocystic disease of the breast.
Lilian Barbara Yeomans was born June 23, 1861 to Amelia and Augustus Yeomans. Her family was originally from Montreal, Canada. Her father was a physician and they moved to the United States in 1862, when he became doctor for the Northern Army during the Civil War. He died in 1878. Lilian decided to follow in her father’s footsteps, and so she attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to become a physician. Her mother, who was a woman of strong character and personality, joined her at the University and began studies to become a doctor herself.
Lilian graduated when she was 21 and passed an examination to practice medicine in Manitoba, Canada in 1882. Her mother graduated in 1883 and joined her daughter February of 1885 in Winnipeg. They specialized in women’s and children’s health issues. Lilian was surrounded with the problems of the poor and the unemployed. She served prostitutes, visited prisons, worked with alcoholics, and dealt with the social breakdown of people in a rapidly growing city. She also became addicted to drugs, which she had easy access to as a physician.
