Hot Quit Newsletter, Issue #026: Nicotine Noodles Anyone?
August 02, 2007
Hi

Here we are with your August 2007 Newsletter from
The Ultimate Quit Smoking Guide

A quote to think about...

"Have a word with yourself."
~ Suzanne Paul

Nicotine noodles anyone?
Thirty unlucky children in a village outside Phnom Penh in Cambodia, recently suffered vomiting from being poisoned with noodles made by a cook who chewed tobacco.

The cook didn't notice that her chewing wad had dropped into the flour as she talked. Police told Sieng Sang to keep her mouth closed when cooking and spruce up her hygiene habits.

Nicotine is a toxin and in high concentrates is a useful insecticide, but for youngsters, and a pregnant mother's developing baby, it only takes a small dose to cause harm.

There are many recorded cases of fatalities, such as the baby who died when spoon fed porridge that Dad had dropped some baccy into from his pipe; and the two young lads who died after eating a cigar.

Put this up where you can see it, and make yourself smile each day.

Care to stop smoking while you play on your free taxpayer funded video phone?
'Stomp' is a health trial run by Auckland University of NZ with $1.5 mil of government funding. Will they ever learn?

Years ago the latest bright idea from officials was to set up Area Health Boards and run almost free stop smoking clinics.

Guess who used them, mostly the wealthy. And why not, after all they recognize the value of a dollar. Trouble was that these clinics didn't perform, because they were staffed by clinically qualified people, only interested in pushing more drugs and patronizingly lecturing.

So millions of dollars later... here's their latest idea.

Apparently part of this $.1.5 mil is to give 200 smokers free video cellphones. It will then use motivational text and video messages to help participants stop smoking.

A much less drawn-out and enjoyable way to quit is with the Quit for Good Stop Smoking program and one week later you're free for life!

See you with the next Hot Quit Newsletter.
