Addiction is an illness, so I'd like to ask my fellow Lourdes group members to pray for my success in my attempt to cease smoking.

It's day one on the patch and lozenges the doctor gave me. So far so good. I've lit 4 cigarettes, but just held them.

In Christ,

"I will set my face against you, and you shall fall down before your enemies, and shall be made subject to them that hate you, you shall flee when no man pursueth you"

"Behold, O God our protector : and look upon the face of Thy Christ" (Ps. 79:20) Here is devotion to the face of Jesus Christ as prophesized by David."

For now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that doth not yield good fruit, shall be cut down, and cast into the fire.

Good job!  One minute at a time!  You can do this!   :pray3: :grouphug:

I adore Thee O Christ, and I bless Thee, because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph save souls!

"Don't waste time in your life trying to get even with your enemies. The grave is a tremendous equalizer. Six weeks after you all are dead, you'll look pretty much the same. Let the Lord take care of those whom you think have harmed you. All you have to do is love and forgive. Try to forget and leave all else to the Master."– Mother Angelica

Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.

And, good luck! Take lots of naps to pass the time. 48 hours and you'll be free!!

My prayers. Three of my siblings were able to give up smoking through prayer.
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

ETA: Sorry, I just noticed this was a group-specific thread. I won't post here again, but I'll be praying for Acolyte's success anyway.
