Smoking Cigarettes: There is a Medical Purpose

Updated on December 20, 2016

A Personal Story

When I was around 9 years old, my sisters and I lined up to kiss our mother good-bye as she was leaving for work and we were on our way to school. In those days, a mother's lipstick came in flavors, and my mother wore cherry. One particular day, I thought to myself, "I want to get a real taste of this lipstick." So as I kissed my mother, I sneaked my little tongue to touch her lips. To my surprising alarm, my mother raised her hand as high and as far back as it could go and wacked the side of my head with all her strength. "Don't you EVER do that again!" she screamed.

I ran to my room and was starting to cry when God said, "Don't bother, there's nobody there." I stopped crying. I went to open my bedroom door and God was right, there was no one left in the house. So I went to the back door, triggered the lock and left for school.

What happened was that my eardrum had been shattered, which caused me excruciating pain for at least 25 years. In my late twenties to early thirties, I suffered ear infections (the opposite ear) that doctors commented were "the worst ear infections they had ever seen." One day I woke up and had to take a day or so off from work because I actually looked like "the Elephant Man" and my right ear had become infected again. But my eardrum was healing. I had survived the blow. Now I am in my early 60's. All that remains is the absolute and final healing of my tympanic. I suffer occasional loss of balance, but have found a remedy to cure the remainder of my ear problems - without pain and with the help of God.


The Last of the Healing

As a result of the natural healing of my tympanic, there began a twitch in my neck as the eardrums began balancing themselves. The twitch is the "go between" as my two ears struggle to balance my brain and vision as the left ear "copies" the right ear toward absolute new health. It is only painful sometimes, as I occasionally apply the use an earplug in my left ear to expedite the learning of my left ear. This causes a greater twitch, but it is not painful (the twitch). Only the left eardrum becomes painful when my ear "hears" the "death frequency."

I Smoke Cigarettes

The twitch in my neck also causes my tongue to suck on itself. This is not so indifferent from the innate baby mouth sucking that a new human being experiences. So, I suck on a cigarette to ease the pain and at the same time, the nicotine serves as a "medication" and the tar coats and soothes my throat in order that I not choke or lose my ability to speak and sing.

I sing to God. He has blessed me that I can copy the voices of famous artists such as Karen Carpenter, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt and Barbara Streisand, and I sing to God just like I used to when I was a kid, swinging on the swings in the park. Smoking has, in effect, saved my life from "death frequency" overwhelming my poor shattered drum. By the Grace of God I did not die that day when my mother wacked me...and by the Grace of God I will soon be able to sing in Church, to God, in a God House with others who celebrate all of God's goodness and thank Him for every day of their life...just like me.

      This is really uplintifg *sigh* I don't like that I have this problem and I try to keep things in perspective because I know the world doesn't revovle around myself but at times I just get the feeling that everyone is looking at me and judging me for my every mistake, it makes it hard to even interact with people without being even in the least anxious. This is uplintifg though and I will def turn my problems to the Lord because at this point he is the only one that can help me. Thanks for the post and your helping people like us by just talking about your situations and giving us all courage.
