I love not smoking and helping others to quit and stay quit. God willing with a good attitude the news of my daughter in ICU is the doctors stopped the bleeding in stomach she is wake but not fully alert and now hour by hour the doctors watching due to the fact every time they move her or she moves she goes into cardiac arrest so the put on the heart stuff and we wait. Took awhile for me to get a blog going to share this test of faith and it just leaves me saying hmmm because I was wondering what to do and I remembered when all else fails think of others above yourself and know others are worse off than me. Now I didn't think of using nicotine at all throughout this day. I was hmmmmm thoughts of am I doing this ok. thanks for letting me babble.....just in shock of MY REAL reality of acceptance and detachment with agape love and to say I am grateful to BLOG hmmmmmmm and state a FACT taught to ME here...NOT ONE PUFF OVER ME by faith in My Lord Jesus thanks for listening and letting ME HMMMMMM babble.
Please take what helps and let go of the rest to be helpful is MY only aim thank you! Please remember I am talking about ME not anyone else thank you! I was taught over 30 YEARS ago to Think Think Think.... MY first thought is MY old way of Think! MY next thought is MY many many old and NEW seeds of this NEW life thoughts mixed and with a HUGE reminder.... NOT ONE PUFF OVER ME....with many PAST rushing thoughts of OLD NICOTINE AS A SOLUTION to make ALL the thoughts to STOP!!!! I was taught this is the SECOND Think which is called.....stinking thinking....in this middle of the SECOND Think is MY many many MIXED UP thoughts feelings of OLD and NEW choices choices choices! The next Think this NEW 3rd Think which these many many NEW Gods agape thoughts for ME ....always are whispered thoughts... so soft ... so gentle... so soothing that happens so peacefully .... the whispering constantly in joy... in hope in agape of LOVE ACTION this 3rd Think for ME was whispers of goodness faithfulness long suffering love kindness peacefulness gentleness self discipline self control and thoughts of obeying God FIRST and doing His will above MY own selfish will to become UNself and to ACCEPT Gods unconditional love for MYself ....FIRST.... because I was taught that I will NOT give away something I don't have.... how will I agape others if I will not agape MYself first! Gods agape love taught ME to love Myself to give agape love which is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF GOD...to freely give ALL away and lift others in prayer and to remember to take care of ME and Gods holy body temple for MY belief is God lives in ME because I CHOICE to accept and decided for MYself to receive freely Christ Jesus as MY Lord and Savior which God offers to all people the free gift of salvation. Then God blessed ME with seeing becomeanx tv commerical on quitting smoking so I came here and those STAYING NICOTINE FREE TAUGHT ME....educate YOURSELF on YOUR nicotine addiction.... ONLY YOU can decide deep inside IF you are a nicotine addict... NO ONE else can decided for YOU... its all on YOU just like NO ONE forced YOU to use nicotine in the beginning... YOU chose and decided to use nicotine.Just YOU. They taught ME to Think of daily CHECK list to take care of ME by loving ACTION ....by drinking lots of water to flush out MY body.... to exercising for better physical health NEW life care for ME... suggestions to find a hobby for MY hand to mouth habit to be put to good use by crocheting hats, scarfs for the homeless or crochet hats for cancer patients and to use MY mouth in prayer for ALL people as I crochet...to color...paint or letter writing or send cards to the elderly.. prayer for others through out the day.... thank God all day long for NOT using nicotine.. to come here to BLOG YOUR hope experience love on how your fighting the battle of recovering from nicotine in CHRIST JESUS VICTORY!!!! ...READ blogs and pass on what was given freely... this 3rd Think for ME is ACTION of Gods love.... the agape love that was given to ME with the ONLY pure motive to HELP to teach what I did when I was STUCK in the FIRST and SECOND Think with OLD self talk thoughts of defeat SHOUTING in MY mind MY will MY emotions this was deep in MY soul... this constant SHOUTING...you will use again... you will never quit using nicotine... your a failure... use nicotine..and I remember the 3rd Think... to pray so I did and ..I chose the THIRD Think and ask God for HELP... I was led here and I have been coming back regardless of who what where when with the THIRD ACTION THINK.... the newbee is the MOST important person to ME for the newbee keeps teaching ME to learn daily but for the grace of God go I and the newbee teaches ME to keep learning that nicotine is still killing people by their OWN choice to use nicotine... so I seek to HELP and LOVE just like God loved ME and gave ME a NEW day a NEW recovering family who lives in the THIRD Think each moment of this NEW day to be helpful by faith in Christ Jesus name amen YOUR CHOICE Think Think Think.
It is NOT what is in MY thoughts.... MY brain power... positive thinking... positive thought training.... new thinking habits... what I have experienced in MY life.... talking about ME not anyone else so please take what helps and let go of the rest to be helpful is MY only aim.... I learned through 38 YEARS of being addicted to nicotine... all the thoughts... thinking of plans.... ideas.... this time I will quit.... failed thoughts.... plans.... ideas.... then I confessed the SELF truth that was in MY heart to MY Lord Jesus...Dear Jesus if you dont take these cigs from ME I will smoke them until I drop dead in Jesus name amen...... in MY heart is the actions of MY heart truth of MY lusts of many many addictions... I thank God for the removal of many many addictions in all these YEARS and now in MY heart is thoughts of love for all those who want to quit using nicotine.... the question to MY self....in MY heart is to always run to God first tell him the truth about ME only ME that think I can do it.... I admit I wont do it if God doesnt help ME to stay quit no matter what in Jesus name amen to confess the truth in MY heart which he already knows... God waits for ME to surrender MY heart addictions and then God in his grace mercy and love sets ME free to choose MY heart truth not MY head knowledge thats SELF filled with ONE more time....one more plan or idea.....convincing MY self that it will be different this time.... this time I will control it... I failed again...... MY heart now says not one puff over me.... go blog and heart help some ONE...... happy new years EVE to all in Jesus name amen

Today I live nicotine free because I prayed and ask MY Higher Power who is God to teach ME to have Christ Jesus mind set to stay quit and and be joy filled! Please take what helps and let go of rest for to be helpful is MY only aim. I am NOT using nicotine to live or cope or hide or stuff MY feelings or any hidden thoughts that maybe I can stay nicotine free one day so I can use only a little... these sneaky thoughts of IF........NO! no more old mind games for ME! NO! Today! I made the decision to be in recovery from using nicotine by sharing how I was taught to STOP my obsessive thinking. It was suggested every time I received the thought of using nicotine to reject that thought by physically turning my head. This slight new way would lead me to capture old thoughts of using and deleting them by the turn of my head and say out loud No! I reject that thought in Jesus name and decide not one puff over me , amen. Then it was suggest I come and read the blogs here or blog to tell on MY thoughts to get HELP from all those here who live a life style of nicotine freedom! HOW they think and years later still come to teach others the ideas suggested to them by others who were here before them! New mind sets with DECISIONS that help ME STAY quit no matter what TODAY! Gentle hug and keep on keeping on TOGETHER! Thanks for letting ME be ME! Love unity is MY mindset to help all those who suffer from nicotine in Jesus name amen ✝️
I used nicotine for 38 years! I tried for years to quit using nicotine and failed. I kept trying to quit until I had enough failures put together that I and I am talking about me only.... surrender to the FACT I was powerless over nicotine and will not stop using so I fell to my knees asked Jesus to take my cigarettes away from me or I would use until I dropped dead from using. I awoke on January 6, 2011 with a cold turkey quit and I been coming here ever since to help anyone to not use nicotine one day at a time. Thanks for letting me share.
