I have been smoking for 7 or 8 years and I have quit so many times... My entire family smokes so it is hard... Cold turkey is the only way to go so prayers being requested for me to quit cold turkey right now successfully and never pick up another.. As well as for my family to get inspired to quit... And for everyone trying to quit... It's no good nobody is even enjoying smoking we just hate the thought of quitting... The Buddha said the root of all suffering is craving so may all sentient beings to be free of craving! Smoking is deteriorating not only my health but my spiritual progress because I am dominated by this craving! So I want to say May all sentient beings ruled by craving know that there a way to cease the suffering!
ye dharmā hetu prabhavā hetun,
teṣāṃ tathāgato hyavadat,
teṣāṃ ca yo nirodha,
evaṃ vādī mahāśramaṇa
All phenomena arise from causes;
Those causes have been taught by the Tathagata (Buddha),
And their cessation too has been proclaimed by the Great Shramana.
