Hot Quit Newsletter, Issue #035: Smoke-free Men
August 02, 2008
Hi,

Here we are with your August 2008 Newsletter from
The Ultimate Quit Smoking Guide

A quote to think about...

"In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties."
~ Henri-Frederic Amiel 1828-1881

Smoke-free men
Men it seems need to express themselves more physically than women. A fantastic solution to this is described in our popular e-book Never Think About Smoking Again. This has proved to be a great idea for many men whilst quitting smoking and helped them cope easily with any withdrawals and their future smoke-free life.

To help even further, have a look at some of the ideas on AskMen. They have a Top Ten list of exclusive adventures to experience, such as Desert Storm — Marrakech, Morocco and Raging Rapids — Peru, South America.

Don't quit quitting
This poem was originally called Don't Quit, by Jill Woolf. Here it is equally effective to use for stopping smoking — renamed Don't Quit Quitting:

Don't quit when
The tide is lowest
For it's just about to turn

Don't quit over doubts
And questions,
For there's something you may learn.

Don't quit when
The night is darkest,
For it's just a while 'til dawn;

Don't quit when you've
Run the farthest
For the race is almost won

Don't quit when
The hill is steepest
For your goal is almost nigh

Don't quit, for you're
Not a failure
Until you fail to try.

You are being used?
Tobacco companies are in business to make a profit, just like other businesses. Nothing wrong with that, and if you have your own business or work for one, then promoting the products or services is a necessary part of a free competitive society. Fair enough again.

It's a bit on the nose though that tobacco companies say they don't target children, but with the declining sales to adults in established markets, they do try many tricks to get in new young users.

There's a new privately produced product called "Tasty Puff" which is fruit flavoured drops to put onto a person's first smoke or chew — what a great way to mask that first horrible taste and get the user hooked.

Respect for business and personal choice is fine and dandy, but do you really want to be a sucker for persuasive marketing and peer pressure? It sucks to know that each suck you take makes the tobacco companies tills go ka-ching, and yours go clunk.

Stop your sniffles
Quit smoking? Feeling cold or got the sniffles? Read about and experience the benefits of good old-fashioned Chicken Soup.

See you with the next Hot Quit Newsletter.

Warmly
