Much like the previous quote, the trickiest bit is the initial decision to quit. Decide once and for all, right now, that you will quit smoking.
“Pain is temporary. Quitting is forever.”
Lance Armstrong quote about stopping smoking
Ironically this quote was used for very very different purposed but it works here regardless. The pain of giving up will suck for a while, but grin and bear it and you will see the benefits of having quit smoking for years into the future.
“Health is not everything, but without health, everything else is nothing.”
Put this one here simply because it is so true. What do you have if you don’t have your health?

Quotes about Depression and Curing Depression Naturally
“Happiness does not depend upon who you are or what you have. It depends solely upon what you think.” –Dale Carnegie quotes about depression
Depression is caused, most of the time, by outside influences; by bad things that happen in life. But it’s important to remember that we have in ourselves the ability to become happy at all times. When suffering from depression it helps to remind yourself that depression is in your mind not outside. And if it’s in your mind, you DO have control over it.
“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” –Wayne Dyerquotes about depression
In many ways this quote seems harsh, but it is still important. At all times, we do have the ability to change what we doing and how we are feeling.
“What you are is what you have been, and what you will be is what you do now.” –Buddha quotes about depression
What you do right now (yes, right NOW) will create the day you have tomorrow. Choose to do something positive and it will make you feel more positive tomorrow. Even if it’s just getting out of bed, do it; it’s a positive step on the right path to curing depression naturally.
“Devote today to something so daring even you can’t believe you’re doing it.” –Oprah quotes about depression
It helps with depression to recognise that you do have options right now even if you are suffering from depression. Choose to do something positive, even if it seems difficult. Go for a walk, speak to a friend . .whatever it might be. Do one positive thing today that will help you cure depression naturally.
“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.” – Lao-Tzu quotes about depression
Depression is hard. Curing depression is hard too. But when you do beat depression you will have gained mastery over your own emotions, and that is a very real achievement.

Wayne Dyer Quotes on Meditation, Life, Change, Intention and More
Choose to do something loving and you will live in a reality of love. Choose to do something of hat and you will live in a world of hate. Your choice.
I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside.Quote by Wayne Dyer
We must accept the things that happen around us. Bad things will happen and there is little we can do about it. We can, however, find the inner strength to control the way we react to those things.
You’ll see it when you believe it.
Wayne Dyer quotes on meditation
Of course, “I’ll believe it when I see it” is the old saying. This is backwards, though. In truth, we must first believe in our ability to achieve something and, on succeeding in self belief we will then succeed in external reality.

We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same.
