A quote to think about...

"Show me a really great triumph that is not the reward of persistence.
Genius, when you look more closely at it, usually turns out to be the sum of uncommon dedication to a task."

~ Orison Swett Marden

"The sum of uncommon dedication to a task"
Sear these words onto your forehead, if you really want to achieve something important... including quitting smoking.

Even something commonplace, like learning to drive. Remember how you gripped the steering wheel and concentrated on all the things you had to do? Lives were at stake. You were totally focused on mastering this skill.

Same with success in any field... don't let anything sway you from your path. Set your goal and give it uncommon dedication.

The great quote above come from a timeless classic called Pushing To The Front, by Orison Swett Marden. You can read more about it and get yourself a free copy here.

That's showbiz
From The Hindu news, Bangalore, comes this report. It's under the heading of Entertainment, and it sure is!

"I am desperately trying to quit smoking," says Bollywood actor, Shah Rukh, as he launched a cancer drug developed by city-based Biocon.

Shah Rukh admitted that it's shameful what's he's doing, especially as both his parents died of cancer.

"I am trying my best to quit smoking. Smoking is a weakness, I am trying to reduce it, but it will take a while."

When a reporter questioned the rating of his new movie, 'Don,' which has smoking scenes in it, Shah Rukh said when he did the character, he insisted that when 'Don' (played by himself) puts a cigarette in his mouth, he also says "I am trying to quit it" when gang members offer him a light.

(My comment: Haha, that will fix the censors. Who's fooling who here? Sounds like money and fame come before honesty... although he did say he is trying to quit, or rather, he's going to take a while to try and reduce it.)

Stub out and veg out
Stub out your last ciggie and start on the big veg out. Sigh... well I know veggies aren't the fave topic of some of you, but them's tha breaks.

Your body is your temple, so they say, and when you no longer worship nicotine, you can worship your own body.

It NEEDS looking after if you've been a smoker, and you're the closet person to it, so take care of yourself, even if it means (no screwing up your face please), eating healthier, including veg and fruit.

For liberating food ideas go to Snack Attack and for brilliant guidelines on what and how to eat click here.

Go through all the links, read the info and you'll be set.

In fact you'll be more than that, you'll be bloomin beaming with health and energy - guaranteed!

And all this '5 servings of fruit and veg a day' palavar in the news, is not so scary.

Hey an apple is nearly 2 servings, a 100 grams of something else green or red under your belt is another serving, a cup (I don't mean a mug) of salady stuff is another serving, a teensy half cup of cooked veg is another serving - are we there yet? Ok, add a small spud or handful of some other fruit and Bob's your uncle.

See you with the next Hot Quit Newsletter.
