We all have habits. Some habits promote us and some habits demote us. The habit of doing Path every day, is one that really gives good feelings and personal empowerment and atunement.

The habit of smoking desensitizes the self and numbs you. I know a lot of people who have stopped smoking. Basically, the success lies in your committment.

If you are a smoker and want to praise God(do Path)(God loves to be remembered) then you should do Path. Do not do your devotion while you are smoking, of course. The good thing of this is that the stronger you become from your devotion to Gurbani.....the more likely you will find the strength and conviction to stop smoking.

God bless you, SKKK
