* Stop Smoking Doctor

If you are a smoker, you are probably getting frustrated with the new anti-smoking laws in Spain (or possibly elsewhere) and may be thinking of quitting. If you are ready for a new and improved lifestyle and want to start living more healthily, try the techniques used by the Stop Smoking Doctor Dr. Alice Byram.

Dr. Byram offers a method that can be a positive and rewarding experience. The best long-term results are obtained by combining medication and cognitive behaviour therapy. The therapy is all about changing habits and is tailored according to the well documented stages people go through when they quit, such as elation, loss and normalization.

Stop smoking and start breathing now! Click here to read more...

* What can a teenager do in Marbella this summer?

One of our readers asks: “I have a long summer break ahead, about 3 months, and I have nothing to do. All my friends will either be out of town or out of the country and my family aren't planning any trips this year (they wouldn't let me travel on my own). I can't speak Spanish and I obviously can't drive yet, so is there anything you can suggest I do? I'm not a very 'outdoorsy' person but I just don't want to be stuck inside my house all summer! Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks “

It´s not the first time we have had this question, so we´ve got some answers. If you have a teenager in Marbella this summer, tell us what you do with them. Feel free to leave a comment on this page. .Click here if you are interested...
