Dear Sir,

Our efforts are limited to the amount of strength the Guru provides us, so long your recitation of Gurbani and Ardas to Guru ji is with faith and love, you will obtain the rewards as the Guru Ji awards. Based on what you've said, it seems your hearts in the right direction as your trying to change bad habits, what you need is strength from Guru Ji to overcome the bad habits and face the challenges in eliminating (i.e withdrawl symptoms and temptations). Keep trying and don't give up, even if you keep failing, keeping on trying, and keep faith that Guru Ji will help you overcome it. Have a strong will and Guru Ji's blessing and you will overcome this habit. I've seen alcoholics and drug abusers literally change into quite amazing and influential people, Your not any less, you have the potential to become the better person you desire in this life-time, don't waste it. Giving up tabacoo/smoking isn't easy if you've done it for a long time, the body will cling to an intoxicant that relieves a mind state it can't handle (i.e commonly stress etc) Since your desire is to overcome the bad habit, you'll have to face that mind state, praying to Guru Ji, reciting Gurbani in times your tempted will help a lot. Try taking those rehabilitation programs which have a lot of good experience with people who have gone through your situation. Start of by making a firm decision that your going to stop the bad habit, once you have the firm decision mentally, eliminate any thoughts that try to influence you to give in to the bad habit, naam simran will help a lot, after this slowly the need of the intoxicant will fade away. Remind yourself your hurting your body, mind and soul each time you use this intoxicant, don't let the bodies urges or fickle mind convey you into giving in. You'll love it when you'll have overcome the bad habit, just don't ever give up! I wish you the best!

Namastwang Akaale, Namastwang Kirpaale!
