God Is Leading People To
Our "Quit Smoking Gods Way" Study
Because He Does Not Want His People To Smoke!!!


Words Spoken Directly To Me From God
Concerning Smoking And Receiving A Healing

Before I stopped smoking, God spoke very clear to me 24 years ago when I needed a healing.

God asked me...
"How can I heal one part of you when youíre damaging another?"


I knew exactly what He meant.
He meant how can He heal one part of me when Iím damaging another (my lungs) by smoking.
This tells me that He wants us to be "totally" healed in all areas of our bodies.
This also tells me that God wants us to do our part.
God is saying to give up the things that are hurting us first so that He can then heal us.
In other words, He was telling me, "What's the use if I heal one part of you if you continue to destroy another part?"
God is saying that smoking is such irresponsible care to the body that He gave us.
That was all I needed to hear and that was the start of it all and this study.
I did as this study instructs and stopped smoking immediately and then received my healing.
I believe that this is a direct revelation from God and a fact that He does not
want His people to smoke and that possibly smoking hinders us from receiving God's healings.


A Testimony That We Received Said...
"The Holy Spirit Whispered To My Spirit,
"Look For QUIT SMOKING GOD'S WAY On Google"

"I was in the office last Friday and I asked the Lord to lead my day. The Holy Spirit whispered to my spirit, "Look for QUIT SMOKING GOD'S WAY on Google..."


Ronnie From Kentucky Writes...
"I Smoked For 49 Years And I Am Free. Free, Free"

"Today has been 40 days since I prayed to be delivered from smoking and I haven't smoked since. I smoked for 49 years and I am free, free, free. My testimony is, it wasn't easy at times, but it wasn't too hard either cause my God helped me all the way. Thank You Jesus !!!"


Linda From Kentucky Writes...
"WOW, This Really Works - After Smoking 42 Years I Haven't Smoked For 12 Days"

"WOW, this really works. The prayers are being answered and people are being set free. I haven't smoked for 12 days now. That is a miracle since I smoked two packs plus a day for years and have been a smoker for 42 years."


Cindy From Pennsylvania Writes...
"After 36+ Years Of Smoking, I Am Free From It"

"God has been working on me for a few days now, so has satan. But this morning God and I won the battle, satan gave up and took the nasty cigarettes with him. I want to thank Val with all my heart for her encouraging email. It meant alot to me and helped me. After 36+ years of smoking, I am free from it and praise God that He led me to this website. I know I could not have quit smoking without God. I wish I had turned to Him years ago instead of trying to do it on my own. For those of you just finding this website, PLEASE give God a chance to help you quit smoking, it truely is the easiest way."


Heather From Florida Writes...
"I "WAS" A Smoker For Over 25 Years"

"Blessings to all in Jesus Christ, I praise our Awesome God with all that is in me and thank you all for your prayers and the wonderful and encouraging emails I have recieved from Christian Journey! I want to update you all on my new life as a non-smoker. It is now 2 months and our Loving Savior has filled my lamp anew with oil! Hallelujah! When I was a smoker, there always felt like a wall between me and God's Spirit, like I was empty of the Holy power that my Christian sisters and brothers seemed to experience. The joy and fullness that only God's Spirit can bring. Well, I have that joy now and let me say, "It's like my faith has grown wings!" My life hasn't gotten easier and my circumstances haven't changed overnight but I feel a hope and joy and peace that I didn't have before! I was a smoker for over 25 yrs and I really didn't think it was possible to quit but I know now that anything is possible with our God!!!!!"


Another Testimony That We Received Said...
"It Was Almost As Though God Himself Directed Me To This Website
I Could Literally Feel God Release Me From The Bondage"

"I was scrolling the net and came across this website, almost as though God Himself directed me to it. I prayed the prayer on here that very night and found myself breaking down in tears. It was as though I could literally feel God release me from the bondage that has held me captive for the past 12 years."

Have You Tried To Quit Smoking and Can't Seem To Do It On Your Own?

What Does The Bible Say About Smoking?

People often ask if there's a verse in the Bible that can tell us anything about whether or not smoking is bad in God's eyes. You won't find smoking addressed in the Bible because the use of tobacco isn't that old. It's origin doesn't go back that far. Here are a few historical dates concerning the discovery and use of tobacco.

  • 1492: Columbus Discovers Smoking.
  • 1497: Robert Pane, who accompanied Christopher Columbus on his second voyage in 1493, writes the first report of native tobacco use to appear in Europe.
  • 1564 or 1565: In England tobacco is introduced by Sir John Hawkins and/or his crew. For the next twenty years in England, tobacco is used chiefly by sailors, including those employed by Sir Francis Drake.
  • 1585: In England Sir Francis Drake introduces smoking to Sir Walter Raleigh
  • 1586: In England tobacco arrives in English society. In July 1586, some of the Virginia colonists returned to England and disembarked at Plymouth smoking tobacco from pipes, which caused a sensation.
  • 1600: In England Sir Walter Raleigh persuades Queen Elizabeth to try smoking.
  • 1610: In England Sir Francis Bacon writes that tobacco use is increasing and that it is a custom hard to quit.
  • 1612: In Jamestown John Rolfe raises Virginia's first commercial crop of "tall tobacco."
  • 1614: First sale of native Virginia tobacco in England; Virginia colony enters world tobacco market, under English protection.

Satan wants to destroy us in any way that he can like through sickness and disease. Another method that Satan will try is to get us addicted to smoking which will slowly kill us over the span of several years, How to quit smoking God's way destroying and contaminating numerous parts of the beautiful body that God made for us. It wasn't in God's plan for us to smoke. The devil gives you a taste for nicotine to destroy you. If you are a smoker remember the first puff you ever took? It wasn't that great and your lungs tried to reject the smoke from the start. You had to develop a liking for cigarettes. I've heard people say that it's like alcohol, partaking in moderation won't hurt you. Don't be fooled my friend. Very few people can smoke in moderation. One cigarette leads to another and to another and before you know it, your half a pack a day habit has gone up to 1 or 2 packs a day.

God may have made the tobacco plant but it is Satan who takes what God made, distorts it and uses it for evil purposes. Some may ask why God put the tobacco plant on earth it wasn't to be smoked. Well there is good things that it can be used for. The most promising field of research for tobacco involves the genetic engineering of tobacco plants to produce various substances such as industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals and consumer product ingredients. Tobacco has been called the "fruit fly of the plant kingdom" because of the ease with which it can be genetically engineered. There are countless possibilities for the use of tobacco, but current efforts are concentrating on engineering tobacco to produce vaccines, human enzymes and plastics.

Satan will try to deceive you and to get you to say that you feel fine How to quit smoking God's way and that the lung cancer, lip cancer, tongue cancer, throat cancer, heart disease, stroke or emphysema that everybody else is getting from smoking will never happen to you. If you smoke Satan will try to convince you that you deserve that cigarette as your reward for the hard task that you've just finished. Satan will try to convince you that a cigarette break will help calm your nerves through the bad times. He will try to convince you that a cigarette break will help you think better or will help you to make better decisions. He will try to convince you that a cigarette break will top off your breakfast, lunch, supper or that steaming cup of coffee. He will try to convince you that several cigarettes will help pass the time while driving, waiting, watching tv or even walking. For some a smoke is the first thing a person does in the morning and the last thing they do before going to sleep. Some even wake up in the middle of the night to have a smoke. Before long you have a pack of smokes on your person, in the car, at work, in the garage or your hobby space. You take them to the beach, shopping, to church, etc. You find yourself lighting up just because the sun came up in the morning. This nasty little habit eventually engulfs your whole life . . . and it doesn't take long. You soon find it has become a part of every aspect of your daily life.





Tobacco Use Causes More Than 5 Million Deaths Every Year
(Centers For Disease Control and Prevention)


On Average Smokers Die 13 To 14 Years Earlier Than Non-Smokers
(Centers For Disease Control and Prevention)


In 2009, 46.6 Million People Smoked And They Purchased More Than 315 Billion Cigarettes
(Centers For Disease Control and Prevention)


Second Hand Smoking Kills About 600,000 People Every Year
(World Health Organization)

Smoking used to be popular and the "cool" thing to do. Today it is more and more frowned upon and "uncool". Smoking only harms yourself if you smoke at a distance from other humans but if near others you are damaging their lives also. The World Health Organization stated that secondhand smoking kills about 600,000 people every year. Yes a smoker does have a right to smoke but a smoker DOES NOT have a right to harm others with it. Let's face it, every person DOES have a right to breath clean air. That's the way God intended it to be. Second hand smoke will harm non-smokers lungs too and cause breathing problems for children. If a pregnant mother smokes, she is risking her babies health. There is a greater chance that she will lose the baby during pregnancy or that it will be born too soon before the lungs are fully developed. Think of your own health too because statistics show that 1 in 3 smokers die early from smoking. It causes bad breath, brown stained fingers and nails, it ages your skin prematurely and causes cancer and emphezema. Not to mention how bad a smokers house, car, clothes and the smoker themselves stink like a dirty ashtray. To a smoker it really isn't that noticeable because your sense of smell is dulled. But once you quit smoking, within days your sense of smell and taste elevates dramatically and these odors will bother you also. Actually the stink of smoking will bother you more so than that of non-smokers.


Cigarette Price Facts
(Centers For Disease Control and Prevention)


Cigarettes are subject to both federal and state taxes.

On April 1, 2009 the federal cigarette tax increased to $1.01 per pack.

As of July 1, 2010 the average state cigarette excise tax rate was approximately $1.44 per pack, but varied from 17 cents in Missouri to $4.35 in New York.

In 1970 Average cost per pack was $0.38. Average tax per pack was $0.18.

In 2009 Average cost per pack was $5.33. Average tax per pack was $2.19

On Jan 1, 2014 New York City had the most expensive pack of smokes in the whole country. The cost was more than $14.00 a pack! This included $5.95 tax.
(They had the highest state cigarette tax of $4.35 a pack and New York City's $1.60 tax. Total tax $5.95, the highest in the country.)

On Jan 1, 2014, the average cost of a pack of cigarettes in the U.S. was $6.36.
Some states are higher, some are lower. But each pack of cigarettes creates
$35 dollars of health-related costs for the smoker.


The cost of a pack of cigarettes has sky rocketed depending on where you live. If you smoke, look at the chart below and see how much you are spending each year on cigarettes.

HOW MUCH DOES YOUR SMOKING HABIT COST YOU?
The cost of cigarettes vary from state to state.
The average price a pack of $6.36 (as of Jan 1, 2014) was used for the chart below.
Amount You Smoke a Day Daily Cost Weekly Cost Monthly Cost Yearly Cost
1 Cigarette $0.32 $2.23 $9.60 $116.80
1/2 a Pack $3.20 $22.40 $96.00 $1,168.00
1 Pack $6.36 $44.52 $190.80 $2,321.40
2 Packs $12.00 $84.00 $336.00 $4,368.00
3 Packs $18.00 $126.00 $504.00 $6,552.00
4 Packs $24.00 $168.00 $672.00 $8,736.00

Think of the things that you could be buying with that money if you quit smoking. A fun thing to do after you quit is to take some of that money and spend it on something for yourself that couldn't have bought before because of that nasty expensive habit. I knew a guy who quit and with the extra money bought himself a few DVD's each week as a reward.

BENEFITS YOUR BODY RECEIVES WHEN YOU QUIT

According to the American Cancer Society,
within 20 minutes of smoking that last cigarette,
the body begins a series of changes that continues for years.
All benefits are lost by smoking just one cigarette a day.
Time Span Since You Last Smoked A Cigarette Benefits
20 Minutes Blood pressure drops to normal. Pulse rate drops to normal. Body temperature of hands and feet increases to normal.
8 Hours Carbon monoxide level in blood drops to normal. Oxygen level in blood increases to normal.
24 Hours Chance of heart attack decreases.
48 Hours Nerve endings start regrowing. Ability to smell and taste is enhanced.
2 Weeks to 3 Months Circulation improves. Walking becomes easier. Lung function increases up to 30 percent.
1 to 9 Months Coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue, shortness of breath decrease. Cilia regrow in lungs, increasing the ability to handle mucus, clean the lungs and reduce infection. Body's overall energy increases.
1 Year Excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker.
5 Years Lung cancer death rate for the average former smoker (1 pack a day) decreases by almost half. Stroke risk is reduced to that of a non-smoker 5-15 years after quitting. Risk of mouth, throat and esophagus cancer is half that of a smokers.
10 Years Lung cancer death rate is similar to that of non-smokers. Precancerous cells are replaced. Risk of mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas cancer decreases.
15 Years Risk of coronary heart disease is that of a non-smoker.

The fact is that it is very hard to quit smoking without the help of Jesus Christ. He has already set you free from all oppression. THAT WHICH JESUS SETS FREE, IS FREE INDEED - John 8:36, Galatians 5:1. God's Word says if we ask anything, believing we will receive from God through Christ Jesus, we can have what we ask for - John 15:16, 14:13-14, 16:23-24. God tells you, IF YOU CAN BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM WHO BELIEVES - Mark 9:23. Remember also that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit 1 Corinthians 6:19. Make a decision today to defeat the lies of Satan and to quit the bad habit of smoking by stopping with the help of Jesus. Honor your body and the long life that God had originally planned for it.

A Testimony Of Success

Below is a testimony from a friend who grabbed hold of those words and put them into action:

"I smoked for many years and like you after failing time and time again to stop smoking by myself, I decided to turn it over to Jesus. Now understand, I was at the point that I wanted absolutely no more of smoking. I came to Christ that night and met Satan boldly head on with all authority that I had in me. I meant business and Satan knew it. You see this is a battle with the devil that you're entering into. You are actually going to war with the devil to save your health and he wants you to fail! This is purely a spiritual battle and no less. Satan is lurking around to see if he "MAY" shorten your life with smoking 1 Peter 5:8. Here it tells us that Satan walks around "LIKE A" roaring lion seeking whom he "MAY" devour. You have to give him permission to devour you. He doesn't have power unless you give it to him! He will try to lie to you and to deceive you as in the lies about smoking but in order for that to work, you have to accept the lies. You know that smoking is bad for you. Stand firm and use the power of Jesus name against him.

You take the authority that Christ gave you

I wanted to be free from this bad habit so I first bound Satan in the name of Jesus (Boldly say "I bind you Satan in the name of Jesus"). Then with every bit of my commanding authority, I commanded him to depart from me (literally say, "I command you Satan and this addiction to smoking to depart from my body...I cast you out in the name of Jesus!"). Then I praised Jesus for my deliverance from smoking. You see, Satan is like an intruder in your home. Your body is the temple or home of the Lord. So if you have an intruder in your home (body) you first want to bind him up to stop him from any further damage. Then you want to get rid of him by casting him out of your home (body). Then praise Jesus for your deliverance. Thank him for giving you clean brand new lungs again. You don't have to beg or ask Christ over and over for this. YOU TAKE THE AUTHORITY THAT CHRIST GAVE YOU AND YOU CLEAN YOUR HOUSE! Make a promise to Him like I did that you will never again touch another cigarette to your lips. Instantly all cravings for nicotine left me, I felt like I received a new pair of lungs. Afterwards I actually had nightmares of myself smoking and I was petrified that I would have to stand before the Lord saying that I broke my promise to Him. But now I know that it was just the devil trying to scare me. That was 24 years ago and I have not had a craving for a cigarette since nor gained any weight. Put your faith into action, try Jesus, He works, praise God!

Most people when they try to quit smoking are not at that point where they are 100% ready to quit with all that they have. You have to be at the point where there is nothing else in life that you want more. You have to be totally ready to get rid of that stinking habit. You have to do your part in this battle by really "meaning it" and then God will do His part. If you don't 100% really "mean it"...it won't work. 99% won't work. Evidence of that is seen in one of the smoking testimonies that we received. A woman was in a prayer line and had been trying to quit smoking. She said she still smoked but very little. She said that the Lord spoke to her and said to "Mean It!" Since then she has not smoked anymore nor does she want to.

So to continue...I was at that point and I was angry. I was boiling and ready to go to battle. I commanded Satan to depart with such authority that I had him shaking in his boots and guess what...he took off! I had the victory and was left with no cravings and new lungs. I know that you can do it too. You see Satan doesn't want us to figure all this out. He doesn't want us to know that Jesus gave us authority to fight our own battles with him using the powerful name of "Jesus". Once you find this out, you now have a mighty weapon to use against him. When he sees that you will stand your ground, not back down and have mighty unwavering faith...HE WILL LEAVE!"

But I must tell you this. You may be "harassed" by the devil for making a promise like that. After I vowed to God that not another cigarette would touch my lips, the devil came to me in a dream and in the dream I was actually putting a cigarette to my lips to begin smoking. I woke up terrified AND relieved that it was only a dream. It made me realize how important it must be to give this up if satan himself came to me to scare me while I slept. He knows that God doesn't want us to smoke so his game is to put fear in us. But he won't win if you don't let him.

Your faith has to be strong so strengthen it by reading God's Word. Romans 10:17, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

In the name of Jesus

Praise God!

Here is a Prayer That You Can Pray To
Ask God To Deliver You From Smoking

Almighty God in the name of Jesus I come to you in prayer. Your Word tells me that I am free from Satan's bondage. For whom Jesus has set free is free indeed. Lord for years I have been in bondage to cigarettes, nicotine, smoking and doing harm to my body which is your temple. I place on your alter this bad habit and addiction. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I bind you up and command you spirit of addiction and smoking to depart from me and enter me no more. I will not take up eating as a substitute and I will not gain weight for I am completely free from this bondage. Praise God! Thank you Lord for my deliverance and I give you glory and honor forevermore. Amen.

An Aid To Help Stand In Faith or Build Your Faith
(Mark 4:14-20):

Quit smoking God's way Pray the prayer above and then print and cut out the two faith statements below. Place them inside the cellophane of your pack of cigarettes one on each side. If you are tempted to reach for a cigarette, read out loud the statement of faith. The reason I want you to read it out loud is so that you can "hear" the words. FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND HEARING BY THE WORD (Romans 10:17). IT IS THROUGH FAITH THAT WE PLEASE GOD (Hebrews 11:6).

I Have Been Delivered From
This Bondage, Desire, Addiction
and Habit To The Glory Of God!
Thank You Jesus I Am Free!
