yeah, guys, i think deenan is right, unfortunately. as much as we want him to stop and be healthier, he has to do it himself if he wants to. i wish he would but thats his decision.

we, the fans of elijah, can only pray and hope for him and his health. but it really is just his right to stop.

thats all i'm going to say.

I've been a back and forth smoker for years.  It's not about knowing better.  It's not even about wanting to do better.  It's an addiction and addictions defy logic.


If it anybody who's considering quitting and battling nicotine addiction to read it....it CAN be done.  I did manage to get free from Tobacco once.  My husband managed to quit too. For good.

For anybody interested in quitting what I have seen work the best is the patch or cold turkey.  It helps if you have time off of work and your daily routine to focus on quitting.

Getting clean from tobacco does make a person suffer at first.  It feels AWFUL..and honestly the worst I've ever felt in my life.  But that feeling passes. 

There are lots of websites available and support groups for that.

For anybody suffering through "quitting" it may help to know they are not alone in what they are going through and that anybody who reads this certainly has my prayers and good thoughts.

It might also help to know that there IS light at the end of the tunnel and it does get easier.  Everybody finds there own thing to stop.  Mine was exercise, gum, candy and tea.  But your body will KNOW it' not tobacco so you still have to fight.

It's a fight and a struggle.  But if you convince yourself you CAN do it...you can.  If could get past it at one point anybody can.

Love and prayers out to anybody who's fighting the tobacco monster.

I agree. He needs help. We shouldn't just sit here and pretend nothing is wrong when most definitely there is. I, along with many others, do NOT want to see years taken off his life. Pray for him. It is possible that he will rid the habit, but it could take a while. I PRAY that he will no longer smoke soon. None want him to,.... die, to early.javascript:replaceText('%20:\'(')

I personally agree with Karin, Deenan, Jen and Valkyrie. Although I would love to see Elijah quit smoking, I also understand that?s it?s his choice. I think Fanofany928 has the best idea. We aren?t Elijah?s family and friends, so, as much as we?d like to, we really don?t have any right to say what he should or shouldn?t do. However, because we?re his fans and concerned about him, we can pray that he?ll soon break his addictive habit of smoking.

I was going to type that, about agreeing with them, lol.  I, too, would love to hear that Elijah has quite smoking.  But, as I've seen with relatives, and other friends that have smoked, it definitely has to be their idea.  I have a friend right now that keeps trying to quit, but it's so difficult for her.  She knows it's not good for her health, but it's just hard for her.  So I just try to be there for her if she ever asks for my help and support.
I've heard that quitting smoking is more difficult then quitting, I think it was cocaine, but I could be wrong about which thing it was. 

Anyway, I would happily show my support if he asked for everyone's support, and help in any little way I could.  But, not knowing him personally, I don't know how much help I could be.  But, believe me, I would do anything I could to help.

You're being a great friend ElijahForever, supporting her. I wish there's something else we fans can do to help Elijah quit smoking, but, there's a lot of power in prayer. Maybe if all us fans start and keep on praying, it'll help him to quit smoking. It's not much of a suggestion, but at least it's something we fans can do to help Elijah.
