],{]HI Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2000 MUi rill"UV6 Lassen Letters: to the editor Continued from page 9 My story pertains to Hal. loween night. I live on one of the busiest streets when the children are heading toward the carnival. From 5 - 9 p.m., I was fortunate enough to greet 180 of Westwood's finest. All dressed up for this special oc- casion, none of them left their manners at home. "Thank you," "have a nice evening" and "happy Halloween," is all I heard. I started getting a little wor- ried when I had 22 in one group then 10 in the next, I'm thinking don't run out of treats, but they kept on com- ing. LaI.er the big kids started, as they "always do. I was so happy theycame, even some football players came, some of which have come to my house since they were two years old. They came to wish us happy Halloween, get a treat, and to visit a little. Talking like adults and yet still having a little fun. What's wrong with that? Their manners were wonderful, I was so proud of them. I went to work and noticed the streets, not one egg, not one smashed pumpkin, no candy wrappers, for this we need to thank the Westwood kids, and I certainly do. These children are Westwood's fu- ture and I think we'll all be just fine if we keep up the good work raising them as we are. I just want to say thank you and I'm looking forward to next year when I get to see all of you again at my door.

Some of the common causes can be grief (such as death of a loved one or pet), loss of a job, drug abus of over the counter or prescription medications such as cold remedies (cough/cold combinations-oral), antihistamines and decongestants, tricyclic antidepressants, and thyroid supplements, withdrawal from drugs, poor diet, hyperventilation syndrome and hyperthyroidism to name a few. However, this is not to say that there may be many other causes of anxiety. This list is not all inclusive. The causes of anxiety can include unlikely diseases and medications or other unexplained causes. According to a study that was sponsored by the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, and was published in the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout Nov. 26 I STAND, 1999 July issue of "The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry," more than 19 million Americans suffer from an anxiety disorder each year, making anxiety disorders the most common of all mental illnesses. However, less than one- third of sufferers receive appropriate treatment the study reported. Anxiety disorders are often accompanied by a mood disorder and/or substance abuse disorders in both adults and children. These co-morbid conditions may hinder diagnosis and treatment of underlying mental illness, causing secondary complications and unnecessary suffering. Anxiety disorders include panic disorder, phobias (such as social phobia and agoraphobia), obsessive- compulsive disorder, post- traumatic stress disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. Study has also shown that about 43 percent of people with anxiety disorders also are depressed or abuse alcohol or drugs. "In the past. tHJHANTEE anxiety disorders have been trivialized, and sufferers have been stigmatized and labeled as the worried well." Study clearly demonstrates that anxiety disorders are real mental illnesses that exact a tremendous toll on individuals and society," according to a statement made by Jerilyn Ross, M.A., L.I.C.S.W., President of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA).

The 24th annual American Cancer Society, Great Ameri- can Smokeout is being held Thursday, Nov. 16. The Smokeout is designed to help smokers kick the habit and to help youth understand the importance of never start- ing to smoke. The Great American Smoke- out promotion is the American Cancer Society's annual, na- tionally-recognized day when we ask smokers to put down their cigarettes, cigars, spit to- bacco, or any tobacco product because they all have the po- tential to cause cancer, after 23 years of service. Locally, the Lassen County Public Health, Tobacco Use Re- duction Program and North- eastern Rural Health has teamed up to offer support to those attempting to quit their tobacco habit. More informa- tion and free quit kits may be obtained by contacting Michelle Urrutia at 251-8357 or Larika Gibbs at 257-8000. Free cessation help is also offered by the California Smokers Helpline 14300-NO BUTTS. In 1999, 21 percent of smok- ers participated in the Great American Smokeout (approxi- mately 10,080,000 people), and of those participants, 11 per- cent reported that they were smoking less or not at all one to five days later. That is over 1,108,800 people who are well on their way to healthier, smoke free lives, thanks to the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout. The Great American Smoke. out is not just about adult smokers and cessation. As the times change and our under- standing of the addictive cycle of nicotine increases, we're working to prevent children from ever becoming smokers. More than 88 percent of cur- rent smokers started before they were 18 years old. That's why the Great American Smokeout is also focusing on promotions that will communi- cate to our children the social disadvantages of smoking, and provide them with the tools to recognize and avoid negative social influences.
