I was a breast cancer stage 2patient on chemotherapy and was struggling with worse side effects due to smoking. I prayed a lot about this addiction and I came to a conclusion I had to quit smoking. I was also looking for different articles on the Internet, however, there was no useful information (except at least this one [link removed by a mod]). After unsuccessful results, I asked my boyfriend to invite a priest to our house (I wasn't able to leave home). Our conversations influenced all my life and helped me fight the ailment.
That's why I'm here - to help other people like my priest (now a good friend) helped me.
It's more about your mindset then the physical addiction, healing, and positive thinking must first take over your mind, start with faith in Jesus Christ our healer, work every minute with Him, talk to Him whenever the desire to smoke arises, plead for willpower and strength to resist smoking urges.

Hello everyone! My name is Teresa and I found this group through a google search "What do i do if my faith is dwindling". I read through a whole thread of someone who had the same concern/questions a few years ago and I found it to be most helpful. Thank you for this. I plan on exploring more topics in the coming days.

Hello everyone. I doubt anyone on here remembers me, but I used to spend a lot of time on this forum. I've been AWOL for a few years, but my brain is itching for some thoughtful, respectful philosophy. I'm glad to see that several veteran members are still active!
