Of all the things my father had the internal strength to stop on his own, cigarettes was the one thing he never could put away.

Do it. I did. My mom didn't. She's dead. Pancreatic cancer (smoking is the #1 cause). My dad didn't. He is almost dead. Throat and lung cancer. All because of smoking. You can and will quit!

May God give you strength to forever be done with the "wicked weed".

Stop postponing it. You could get seriously ill.

Lord grant you strength!

I say the best time to do it is when there is no imminent long fasting period, because you will begin to get food cravings to satisfy your need for the cigarette. Might as well be able to give in to that rather than the cigarette. Good luck! My father dropped his cigarette one day and said never again. He never again smoked.

Procrastination is the devil's tool.

Today is the day of salvation. Do it today starting with Great Vespers.

Know that I am praying for you.

και κορμί μου μοναχό,
αν εγώ δε σας παντρέψω
σαν τσιγάρο να καώ!

and lonely body,
if I don't marry you,
may I burn like a cigarette!
