I have been smoking for a few years now and have joined a church in the last year. Recently I confided in one of my leaders at church that I smoke and was immediately told I should rethink and pray about it, because it isn’t the godly thing to do. Today I decided to find answers on why it isn’t godly because I have also found it helps me connect to the Lord. This has reassured me and given me another resource and story to share when I’m confronted again with why I smoke and say I follow Jesus. Thank you for sharing.
