Stopping the Use of Cigarettes
By Alan R. McGillvray

I had been wanting to stop smoking cigarettes for some time. In my desire, I finally figured out that it was the first light-up in the morning that set the day. The idea that since it was that first cigarette that set me up for smoking for the day, why not just not light it up and set a whole different tone on the day. Well I tried that, and it WORKED. I still have not lit up that first cigarette of the day. That was some 3 & 1/2 years ago.

I still some times want a smoke but I still haven't lit that first one in the morning. Thank You LORD for the strength to stop cigarettes!!

Yours, in good health, and no smoking of cigarettes,
