Have you tried vaping? I heard that it has helped people trying to quit real cigarettes.




Don't worry, you're pretty. You'll find someone or they wll find you. Just don't be so picky that you reject anyone who isn't perfect.
Thank you, I believe love and marriage are to be met cannot beg, I also want to prepare oneself to become a good helper first. Believe that god has his own time

God's grace will guide you with the Holy Spirit. I know about depression and that is hard to deal with but just know that God loves you and -cares about you very much.

I have occasional anxiety also and pray each morning before I go to work for God to calm my fears. I understand about pressure also. I am glad that you are coming out slowly of the depression and anxiety. Yes, there are a lot of caring peeps on this site who genuinely care about each other including yourself.

God does have His own time but perhaps sooner rather that later for you. :)

Yes, I had hoped that the marriage would come sooner, but now it seems that god has not opened the door, I have to wait, the process is not easy, because I am a impatient person.

I actually have 3 containers of those that were given to me in a stop-smoking support group but haven't really tried them. I did try the patches but it appears that I am allergic to the adhesive as there was severe itching and they left square blotches on my skin that took over a month to finally fade away. Yes, I am going to try the lozenges.

This whole thing is becoming an embarrassment to me, I say that I am gong to quit but all I do is talk a good game, no positive action taken whatsoever. Yes, I am an addict but that is not an excuse but rather a statement of truth.

I did like your ideas about putting the $5 a day in a jar, save some money and treat my honey to a steak dinner and maybe buy her some flowers too and perhaps take a romantic get-away vacation too.

I do thank God that I decided to abstain from alcohol in 1992 or otherwise I would probably be an alcoholic too. I still like alcohol but I choose not to do that type of activity. I need the same mentality about smoking, that it is something that I enjoy but I choose to live rather than die. Live or die is really the two choices in this equation. May God allow me to choose wisely. He's rooting for me too to quit this filthy habit.
.
Nicotine gum (nicorttes) is what did it for me – I transferred the addiction from cigs to gum - for about 6 years. U get the nicotine fix without all the other harmful gunk. If you’re gonna be addicted it might as well be to the stupid gum ha ha.

Then perversely I came down with cancer (but not the sort that had anything to do with smoking tho…) But after God spared me I sorta forgot about the gum.

Good luck Tourist.

I'm a mess as well, but that's what makes God's glory even more beautiful!

I struggle with lust, impatience, getting easily offended, anger, lack of self confidence.

But through the love of Christ He is slowly transforming me and displaying what it means to live in His love everyday. Thank you God!
Yes, I understand you very much. I too am at war with loneliness, fear, desire, impatience and temperance, which rob me of joy and peace in my life.

These are some very hard things to deal with alone. I will pray for God to help you in these areas, especially the fear and loneliness. Even though Adam walked with the Lord in the Garden of Eden he was still lonely for someone of his kind so God took one of ribs and fashioned a woman for him. God said it is not good to be alone.

Thank you for your understanding and prayer, loneliness is really painful, which means I need to rely on God!

Perhaps that's the point of loneliness, when you feel down and out and a senses of isolation sets in you turn to God for your source of comfort, strength and understanding.
