I knew it would be very hard, I did it so long.
But my faith and determination has made me strong.
I start each day with a prayer in my heart.
Not to reach for that first one just for a start.
I race to kitchen and the coffee pot.
I tell myself, wait till the coffee's hot.
But when I do my cup is filled.
My thoughts for a smoke has grown still.
All through the day I keep quite busy.
