Your Twelth Post and I must say a very good question. As I only know a little bit of how our minds work, I have sent a Copy to my Learned Buddist Bro. Will get back with reply ASAP.

@No one in particular.

It is in the mind. If appealing to a "higher power" helps your mind gain strength in any way, I have no argument. If something someone says helps strengthen your mind against the lie, more power to you.

In the end, the lie in the mind must be rejected.

What kind of a real man would let a stupid weed control his day? The answer is all of us who ever smoked. We think we are strong men but not when it comes to that weed. How could we let it happen? We believed the lie and continued to believe it every hour of every day. We believed we needed that weed even though it was killing us and spoiling our health.

Who dreamed up this lie, and who managed to get millions to believe it? How did so many get hooked? It has to rank as one of the biggest, if not the biggest scams in history. None of us would ever deliberately allow ourselves to be scammed until it comes to that cigarette. There is NOTHING good about that weed and there is EVERYTHING bad about it. Our intellect knows it is so, but the lie in our mind which tells us it is our friend has taken over our good sense.

We will smoke ourselves right into our graves knowing it is doing that, but the lie tells us it is our friend. How many friends will I allow in my life who I know are trying to kill me? Believing that a cigarette is a friend is the world's biggest lie.

The body can easily tolerate quitting. The mind, not so much until we reject the lie.

It is 99% mental.

@No one...

Regularly I read on here about some guy who is addicted to a bad Thai woman. She is eating up his money and destroying his mind. He is addicted to her. He keeps coming back for more.

EVERYONE tells him she is bad for him and to get away from her, but he is lying to himself, believing that he needs her. He doesn't listen and he goes back for more.

What is so different about a cigarette which steals our money and destroys us?

NO ONE on this forum, even smokers, will tell anyone that smoking is good. Everyone will admit that it steals our money and ruins our health. ALMOST EVERYONE here who smokes wishes he'd never started. Some are addicted to a woman and some to cigarettes and some to both. IT IS ALWAYS IN THE MIND AND IT IS ALWAYS A LIE.

Until the person with the bad woman or the cigarettes realizes for himself it is a lie and hates being in the trap, he will stay in that trap. No one can tell him different. He must see it for himself.

It is all mental.

It is all mental.

Yes, **all**.

When we die, we wake up and realize that what we think was our whole lifetime here on Earth was just a flicker of eye's worth of dreaming, what we thought was all of reality just a creation from whole cloth of our infinitely Creative Mind.

My typing this on my keyboard is just a figment of your own imagination.

That is reality.

So stop taking it all so seriously - go ahead and have that ciggie!

Your Twelth Post and I must say a very good question. As I only know a little bit of how our minds work, I have sent a Copy to my Learned Buddist Bro. Will get back with reply ASAP.

The Dalai Lama said " There is no theory of a Soul or a Self, niether on the level of Ordinary Beings, nor on that of a Budda. Non self{Anatana) is simply a natural aspect of the way in which every person exists. There is no Independant Self, that exists substanially from it,s own side, however, the Self, or Person, does exist dependant on the Psycophysical Aggregates. This Self, which is always an Individual, can only Exist in relation to it,s Aggregates." Descrates said, " I think there for I am." Budda would say "I think therefore there are Thoughts. No need for I am. Just an Endless Stream of Thought, that we create Our World.

I'm sorry. No offense intended but not only do I disagree, but I don't like the religion of others posted here.

Would I be so welcome if I quoted Bible verses as the way to be?
