    I had it bad, or should I say,
    IT
    had me bad.
    I can't recall when
    IT
    started running the show.

    In the beginning
    IT and I were cool.
    didn't matter if we hung around the house
    Or chilled having lunch with the girls.
    We were inseparable.

    family and friends could see

    IT was getting the best of me.
    repeatedly tried to convince me
    leave
    IT alone. But...as I said,
    we were inseparable, we didn't
    care what anyone said.

    Something strange occurred one day
    I went out and forgot
    IT.
    IT
    didn't like that too much
    nor was I feeling too good
    without
    IT.
    I ran back home for
    IT

    Thats when I realized
    IT had me.
    IT finally possessed me.
    Had me believing I couldn't make it
    without
    IT.
    had to have
    IT in the morning
    had to have
    IT after every meal
    had to have
    ITduring breaktime
    couldn't go to bed without
    IT.

    If it came between
    IT and food
    food would loose to
    IT....
    Used to feel bad if I didn't have
    IT,
    now I was feeling bad because of
    IT.

    Struggled and tried many times
    to single handedly free myself from
    IT.
    Putting up a good fight
    but always losing the battle.

    One frightening night the battle
    was overwhelming
    I labored gasping for air
    which didn't seem to be there

    I prayed to God, Please help me.
    I have tried desperately to free myself.

    IT
    is too strong.
    The alluring scent and taste
    overpowers me dragging me
    back to
    IT time after time.

    I need the strength of YOU
    to deliver me.
    Tonight I put my faith in YOU

    IT
    possesses me no more.
    I claim the VICTORY!


    A testimony. God delivered me from my addiction to cigarettes
