HOW ABOUT ANY OF YOU? This is what I use to BE like in MY using YEARS- please I am talking about ME not anyone else- please take what HELPS and let go of the rest - thank YOU. I use to smoke at people. I use to blame people. I use to ask other users for their cigs when I had none. I use to beg God in MY prayers for money to buy cigs. I use to buy cigs FIRST and then food for kids. I use to smoke when I was in hospital with double pneumonia and on oxygen - I would sneak in the bathroom with MY girlfriend - who I called to bring ME cigs. I use to pick up cig butts off streets on MY native american reservation given to ME by this government and told to STAY on MY side of town- do not go to the area of city belonging to the WHITE people ONLY- and when I was 4 years old with MY sister and this other child - WE - collected cig butts off those streets in a coffee can for MY grandma and WE smoked them before giving her OUR collection of cig butts. I use to smoke 50 cigs a day studying MY bible. I use to smoke 50 cigs to cope with MY day. I use to smoke over MY emotions - MY pride or being jealous of people - I craved attention to be the ONE- I use to smoke 50 cigs a day because I hated MYSELF and I hated MY life - I use to smoke over MY evil tormenting childhood memories - OH MY - the list can go to infinity! TODAY MARCH 16 , 2019 - Saturday and Only by God's grace by MY FAITH in MY Lord Jesus and HIS tender mercies and blessing ME for 8 years - I choose of MY OWN free will - to live a CHRIST JESUS life style and He doesn't use NICOTINE to live and neither DO I - amen.
