Prayer request

Last night I was sitting on the couch, all comfy, with Josh Groban and Micheal Buble, and I was thinking how important it is for all us mommys to take some time out and just be....to relax, get back in tune with your soul. I was playing around on the computer, so I don't think I was relaxing to the max, that I could and should have been, but it was nice.

A prayer request: At the beginning of the year I made resolutions, now normally I don' tmake reolutions, but I did this time. They were;

1. Stop smoking
2. Quit chewing my nails
3. Quit drinking so much pepsi

Well I succeeded in quitting chewing my nails, and slowing down on pepsi, so I started to quit smoking. Well, pepsi helped my smoking cravings, so that started back up again, and chewing my nails went out the window too. I did manage to quit smoking for 10 days, and I have never felt better in my life....but.....here I am, pop in one nail chewed hand, smoke in the other!!

So I pray that God can give me the strength to do this, I KNOW I can, I just have to tell my brain that. Has anyone gone through similar troubles and have advice??

Those are some tough goals. I hope and pray that you succeed! I have an addiction to coffee so I feel your pain. Good luck. Keep us updated!

I can sympathize with you because my weakness is Diet Coke and Biting my Fingernails.

My husband is a smoker and, although he has never TRIED to quit, I know it would be difficult for him.

I'll pray for you hun! :)

I don't smoke but I am addicted to food and diet coke :) I am currently going through a study that is causing some MAJOR growth in my life and for the last 2 weeks I feel like i am moving in the right direction. I know about 10 people that have smoked for 10-20 years and have all stopped using the medicine that is out now...I have no idea how to spell it..chantex??? But also the site settingcaptivesfree.com has a study that is designed for smokers...it is under the substance bar...called Breathe of Life. I know for me...I kept trying to change all my bad habits out of my own self-control and willpower--and when things got old and hard...those 2 things never pulled through for me. Love your desire to change.

Hey there,
right my names lizzie... and i am 23... BUT i used to smoke... USED to.. i was on 40 a day then cut down cos i always said i would quit... then 20 a day, then 10-20 a day ... then i admitted to my mum that i smoked :( she wasnt happy (as u can imagine) and she said to me, "if u wont quit for yourself, quit for me" and it struck a chord with me... and i said ok... and she said New Year do it... so i did, and i havnt had a cigg ALL year, BUT i had to ask Gods help, if u make a thing with him, rather than do it urself it makes it easier.
AND... i bite my nails... so what i did... was...i said ok... i have 10 fingers and 10 nails... ill stop biting one by one... thumbs forst etc... and now i only have one nail i bite!!! and once u concentrate on biting only one or two... it gets so easier...

Let me know how it goes, but my prayers are with you
xxxxxxx

My story

Welcome to my blessed life!! Meet myself, a 32 year old stay at home momma. Meet hubby, who I have been married to for 14 years. We got married right out of high school, and while there have been many hardships, my husband is my best friend, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are living life with a 6 year old Grade oner, Gracie and 3 year old toddler, Alysha, which has its challenges, but we love every minute of it. God has blessed us with everything we need as well as tonnes of great friends and family.
