If you have planned to quit smoking as a New Year’s resolution, here is a compilation of important tips to quit smoking successfully and begin the New Year on a fresh note.

New Year's Resolution Quit Smoking

Remember this is an addiction. So you need to tell yourself about the harmful effects of smoking. Begin by maintaining a diary. Write a daily account of how good your body feels by reducing the dependency of the cigarette. Write positive things about how your body will benefit by stopping smoking on a daily basis.

Eat healthy and eat smart, nicotine withdrawal symptoms are common and you need to eat right to ensure your body feels good despite your addiction problem. Discuss with your doctor for a balanced diet plan. Include healthy food items in the menu.

Maintain an exercise routine. Exercising will keep your body and mind fit. When you have a good exercise routine planned, you tend to feel positive all over. You can set aside half an hour in the day for an exercise routine. Exercise makes you refreshed and the positive vibes will help you to forget the craving for the cigarette.

Maintain a list of rewards in your diary. Every day, reward yourself in any little way for not having smoked a cigarette. This will help you to be motivated throughout the day and look forward to stop smoking. You can plan for a relaxing bubble bath or treat yourself to a movie with a friend.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
