In the year 2012 I did a magickal working to get my life back on track. I had been in a rut for quite some time. My energy level was very low. I decided to do a bit of candle magick on the Spring Equinox to get my life back in order. This was the year that I was able to quit smoking. I had many adventures in this year which were very exciting. I quit smoking on the day I received a Mars amulet in the mail from Amazon. I have been able to remain free of cigarettes ever since that amulet arrived.
