February 12 was my 6 month smoke free mark! The encouragement of all of you has been priceless. I know I couldn't have done it without the Lord's help and your prayers.

Bravo to all of you fighting the good fight! Please keep it up and stayed plugged in to the Source of your victory.
If any of you can relate to me- I was ashamed to admit to being a Christian and smoking- I had to mind my witness!
Keep going and pray, pray, pray for your deliverance! A hearty coach's pat on the back to all!

Praise God. My husband and I (both 52) quit smoking in October 2007. I had tried quitting many, many times but always came back. One time I had quit for a year. In October 07, my husband had a stroke, lost his feeling on the right side, but it all came back. We both quit. My husband changed his lifestyle for the better. It is 4 months, and my husband is a bit edgy still. But I have this feeling of peace that I am done with this harmful habit. Quit now, before other things complicate your life. Then you lean on the smoking rather than Christ. Stay quit, and lean on Him. God Bless.

This is all great and good news. I am still quit, although there has been a time or two it was a passing thought, emphasis on passing, and a weird thing, sometimes I have dreams about smoking.... I think that is soo weird. I am reminded how hard it was to quit and leave it at that.
As far as nicotine to help with a disease, there are ways to receive nicotine without smoking, so I would think you dont have to smoke. It is a personal decision. Paul said, "all things are lawful to me, but not all things are expedient."
I am glad to be in the rank of some quitters!!!!!!

Question for the quitters?
Okay I quit smoking in January !!! I have had some wonderfull days and then I have had some very very hard and stressfull days, The bad days I want to smoke alllllllll day long and it is wearing me down, I have asked several people who have quit how long does this endless struggle go on ??? And I get answers that depress me, I asked one and the answer was 8years !!! another said 20 years !!!! one said I could still smoke today ! GAK !!! The only thing that helps me is thinking that soon this struggle will go away and I will not spend days thinking about smoking, then when I hear that I have to fight for YEARS I feel like just giving up So What is the truth ??? Will it always be this hard?? Will I spend the rest of my life craving cigarettes??

I think it is different for each person. Pray for strength from God. I dream about smoking, and enjoying it sometimes. I hate that, I wake up feeling like I lost the battle sometimes, but then I realize it was just a dream....
My husband smokes, and there are times I think about just getting one of his, and then I remember how hard it has been to finally quit and allow it to be a passing thought. It is a moment by moment struggle. Do not give up, you do not have to give in. this is more about bringing your body into subjection. Self-control. I will be praying for you.

What helps sometimes is thinking that the craving=temptation. Thinking of the enemy standing in front of you blowing smoke in your face when you have the craving. And the enemy just smiling at the thought of you caving in, like he so expects it of you. This can make you more aware of the battle you are in. So sometimes it is so tough but you find other times, the feeling passes after a few deep breaths or whatever. Sometimes saying the name of Jesus outloud, knowing you are not in the battle alone. Quitting smoking is like coming out of a fog, I think you realize gee, why did I do that for so long? Much love to you going through this.

If the Lord be for us, who can be against us?
Wow, it has been 5 or 6 mos, one relapse. I did get a cig and took 3 puffs, but I really didnt want it, my mind did, but when I got it and took those puffs, my body was like, what do you think you are doing???? You cant trust your mind sometimes.
Resist the devil and he will flee from you!!!
