Help with gods word

I feel like god is telling me to quit smoking I was wondering if anyone knows any bible verses I can grab instead of a smoke.
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
not to condemn just points to ponder i smoke too :)

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (New International Version)

18Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 19Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

Romans 12:1-2

1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual[a] act of worship. 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Good on ya buddy your giving up a bad thing for the GOOD!!!

i did come in here with Bible Verse and now i Cant remember it.... now i feel stupid... but still grabbing any thign form the Bible is good rather than a Smoke i gotta say.. it HAS to be...

Love Simon!!!
LOVE that answer Ichthus! Absolutely you are right. Grabbing anything from the Bible is better than grabbing a smoke. And also grabbing many other things this world offers....like an extra bowl of ice cream for instance! OR...something far more serious.

How wise you are Porklion to want to replace with the WORD. Powerful stuff!

Many blessings......
very good choice to quit smoking........I started when i was 13 and just recently quit....
May 30th 2005 8:10 a.m. I put out my last smoke
good luck to ya ...you'll be glad ya did

2Cr 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,

Col 2:21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;

Col 2:22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

Col 2:23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
mark 7:18- and he saith unto them are ya so without understanding also?do ye not perceive that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man it can not defile him .
not to say i am saying its ok but i feel that he knows our heart and we tend to be a lil hard on ourselves,he paid the price for transgression mark 7:15 there is nothing without a man that entering into him can defile him but the things which come out of him those are they that defile the man, he says this 2 x's in mark following the phrase if any man have ears let him hear...... he also says the same thing in matt. so i would say it was important to understand that he justfies us that turn to him i know you know this but i also know sometimes we are hard on ourselves for things we allow ,romans delares this also 7:14 for we know that the law is spiritual but i am carnel sold under sin for that which i allow not: i would,
that do i not: but what i hate that do i.
7:6 if then i do that which i would not i concent unto the law that is good . 7:22 for i delight in the law of god after the inward man .
