    Please, I've been struggling a lot this year with smoking and don't want to make it a habit again. I use to chain smoke a couple years ago, but recently found myself picking up the habit again. When I'm stressed I'll buy a pack of cigarettes, smoke a couple and throw the pack out because I will feel Ill, then feel convicted for harming my body again and ask the Lord for forgiveness. I just started a job and all my co workers smoke which makes things worse with trying to avoid it, I don't want to keep using cigarettes as a means to cope with my stress. I use to read my bible every day and listen to k-love to cope with my stress as well as draw and play my ukulele, but I'm finding it harder every day to maintain those healthier ways to cope. I've prayed to the Lord, but I don't know if my heart was or is, in the right place right now for my prayers to be effective. I'm weak and need the power of God over my life to free me, I don't want this sin to have control over my life again.

    Get back in the daily routine of reading. Do you have a Bible app? You Version is free and lots and lots of translations. When your friends go to smoke, don’t go and open up and start reading. Find daily reading plans. Pray without ceasing.

    I will, also friend you ask God to give you strength in prayer. Most addictions,vices and temptation are too hard to overcome with our own disciple or will. We need Gods will to make us strong enough to break free from these worldly things that cling to us.

    God bless.

    I do have the bible app and started getting caught up on my bible plans again, thank you for the advice, the best thing I can do is keep myself busy while at work and pull out my bible app on my lunch breaks.

    Dear Heavenly Father,

    We gather here today in your name in hopes of lifting up our sister. Lord, we ask that you bless this woman with your wisdom in strength so that she may overcome the obstacles she is facing. We know that in your own perfect timing, you will heal her from her unwanted desires. And until you do, Father, we will continue giving you praise because we know you are forever faithful. And you know that we are forever grateful. We love you Jesus. In your precious name we pray, AMEN.
