    Default smoking

    Hi all,
    I have been aware of the health risks of this habit for sometime but it'sstarting to really bother me. Once again I have iritus whicj I am sure is because of my tobacco habit. Please pray that the Lord helps me quit before I get really sick. Its sometimes hard becaue my best friend also smokes and when we
    are in doors she smokes. So it's even more challeing to quit.

    Thanks in advance.

    Lifting you up in prayer to the Lord for deliverance from smoking.

    I'm not a bad guy. I'm just misunderstood.

    Galatians 6:14 - But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

    I used to smoke heavily. It took about six weeks for me to lose the urge to smoke, when I quit cold turkey, after a number of failed attempts. It's time for you to quit.

    It's hard to tell. I get colds very easily, and it seems likely to me my smoking contributed to that.

    Oh sister I can't lie, to quit smoking is a very hard thing. I know it was for me, even more so if you are around smokers all the time. I don't know if I could have stopped while being around smokers all the time. Also I had to have a nicotine supplement, I personally used the fruity Nicorette gum. I also believe that leaning on and giving it to God is necessary. I think it was 2 full years before I could smell a cigarette and not crave it, but I didn't just want to come to say how hard it is, and give only negatives. The MAIN thing I want to share is how worth it quitting is. I still feel it is one of the best things I have ever done (outside of real life stuff like being saved #1, being Married #2, My sons birth #3 & #4 things like that trump it by far). It is tough, but it is so very worth it so I say go for it and pray you can put it down, you will not regret it.

    Mat 5:30

    "If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell."


    I find this to be very true because, God used me losing all function in my right arm after a motorcycle wreak to lead me to Himself, Truth, and Salvation.

    Forgiveness Prayer:

    Lord Jesus, Divine Forgiver; make me an instrument of forgiveness
    This is the first day of the rest of my life.
    I forgive those who have hurt me deeply,
    I am leaving behind those things of the past and all my past failures and sins.
    I'm pressing on today, with a new beginning in You.
    Have your way, clear my conscience and mend my broken heart.
    Put joy where sorrow once rested.- In Jesus Name AMEN

    I am a smoker as well.
    I don't like it and long to give up.

    That may sound a bit weird but that's how I feel.

    My problem is that I'm frightened to fail, when I have quit and smoked at some point after have had a smoke, I give up giving up.

    I feel a failure.

    If I could resolve God loving me even though I smoke then maybe It would be easier to stop.
    I don't know I find it confusing.

    Been told because I smoke then I'm going to hell whilst smelling like it.

    we have some very dear friends that we've know for around 25yrs.- we met them when they
    called us to trim their horses - they both smoked way back then and I guess that he was in
    his early forties, but, they were and are very special to both of us, hub and me - anyway we
    kind of went our own separate ways as he got a job driving over-the-road, and we all know how
    things and relationships just continually change over the years, but of course not our feeling for
    how much we love them...anyway, he stopped-by the other day after not seeing him for quite some
    time on any kind of regular basis, and besides gaining a lot of very un-healthy weight, we couldn't help
    but notice that his 'smoking-habit' had taken a drastic turn, he could barely take-in a drag and when
    he did, he had a cough that would tear your heart to pieces...he is now in his early sixties, and we know
    that he will soon die, just by what we observed that day - the sadness and pain we feel for him and his is quite
    over-whelming, especially since the family were so into out-door life, 'riding and fishing, gardening',
    basically they just loved and enjoyed the out-doors and natural living in so many ways...the wife is in
    just as bad a condition as he is and their daughter is well on her way as she manifests their same
    toxic behavior...and then there are her children, who are constantly exposed to the same things...

    hub and I are both heavy, EX-Smokers and we do know that it is just a choice - we both quit in our twenties,
    me, (2)packs a day and hub (3), and sometimes when we drank, one after another after another and even
    if I woke-up in the night and couldn't sleep, I'd light up...we know what an 'all-consuming' HABIT it is...
    The Holy Spirit has since revealed why we were so dependent upon them...
    we didn't know each other then, and were both 'carnal'!
    the 'last-fruit' of The Spirit is TEMPORANCE, and we believe the reason that this is, is because
    it is the 'easiest-to-master', if it is a priority and desire...

    sorry for being so 'long-winded', but we feel such sadness and heartache, for the near future of
    our dear friends is written on the wall, and the last thing we want to witness is the terrible suffering
    that they will have to endure...
