Just Do it

Posted in Staying quit 29 Aug 2015

42 days now ... This is amazing grace! There have been moments when that craving comes, like after meals. I just don't give in.i start by taking deep breaths and then I clean up in the kitchen. After that I read devotionals or look up healthy recipes I can make .... You can do this ! Just focus on the good. Overcome evil with Good! Amen

My daughters and my son have been brothering me for years to quit. I have smoked for forty years a pac a day sometimes more. My youngest daughter bought me the book by Allen Carr s easy way to stop smoking which I had read twice through and I read through my highlights for the third time . Along with his book I used Gods word as well yo mediate through the process as Allen Carr mentions in his book that you have to have the same desire as you have to smoke but the desire to be switched to I don't smoke and I don't smoke yeah I m free and I used the passage from God s word where it says "to whom the son (Jesus) has set free is free indeed! (John 8:36) no cravings this is so easy, I have to thank my God, my daughters and Allen Carr's book. When I came to the day I decided to do this. I had a visit with my youngest daughter and she asked me if I read the book ... Of course twice through ... Well she said to me "just do it " ... I went to go see my doctor about possibly using nicotine replacement therapy but he doctor said to "just do it" I opened my bible to a passage in Numbers 13:30

Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”

Again there was the word and third time a confirmation from God " Just Do it"

I believe God has given me the grace to go through with this with so much ease I can hardly believe it my self. I have tried in the last to quit and it was such torture. There are no words to describe this freedom. Other than I can say I am truly free! Thank you Jesus

You Can Do It!
