"A Message From My Body to Me"

From finally_done on 2/22/2004 7:50:30 AM

I don't know if this is the one you're looking for.
Someone sent this to be a few days ago.

Dear ..........

It has been x days since you have quit smoking. You
probably don't recognize me since you have been real busy
for about x years.
I am your body and I wanted to have a conversation with
There are some things I need to tell you and share with
You may need them now that you are recovering and I for
the first time can express them.

I am your lungs, your heart, your eyes, your liver, your
blood, your skin and your mind.
For x years, ......., you have been smoking and I have
been unable to talk to you.
It's not that there were times when I did not try, because
I did.
I sent you all sorts of signals to let you know I wanted
to talk to you and you were not able to hear me.
You passed it off as a morning cough or dizziness and
whatever you were doing for all those years was too strong
for me to fight.
I have been waiting for this conversation with you for

I must first tell you that we don't miss the smoke you
filled us with.
There were days when you were out, having a good time in
the summer sun and I was too.
I like the warm air and I even like the sun.
But, ........, even on those wonderful days you would take
the time to fill my lungs with smoke, my blood with carbon
monoxide and my brain with nicotine.
Every time I thought things were getting better and I was
ready to talk to you there would be a burst of all these
chemicals and I had to spend all of my energy, and YOUR
energy, ......., on trying to keep you alive.

I think you get the point now and I don't want to sound
critical although I may have come off that way.
What I really need to tell you is that for the past x days
I have been working hard with the rest of your body ,to
heal from a lot of years of neglect.
I guess I want to say THANK YOU.
Thank you, ......., for having the courage and the
strength to quit smoking.
If you have ever done anything right for me, by not
smoking you have given me a new life.
I need to tell you that it will take time for me to heal.
You know how long you smoked, ........ It will take a bit
of time to work with the lungs and the brain and the heart
but IT WILL HAPPEN. Every cell in your body congratulates
you... ....

I need to warn you about something.
One of the drugs that the brain thought it liked was
That's a bad drug.
It fooled me into thinking that I needed it.
I never picked up a cigarette in my life and you made me
addicted to Nicotine.
Hey, I know it was not your fault! But there will be some
difficulty the next few days and months. I, too, became
addicted to that drug and it will take some time before I
get rid of that.
But I have a promise that I want to give you now that I
can talk to you.
If you promise to not smoke and to give this your very
best shot, and I know how hard it is for you, I will
reward you with more than great health, ...........
And in time you will not only feel better but I will give
you something that you thought you lost a long time ago.
Remember your self-esteem and your image?
Well I know who you are and I want you to know that I LOVE
In time you will feel better and be so proud of what you
accomplished-This I promise you.

By the way!
In this process of getting better we will be doing a lot
of work inside.
So please feed me and water me like you would if you were
taking care of a beautiful Rose.
It's time that you started tolook after yourself with
love, understanding and compassion as well; we like that
Everything you give to me during this process I will
reward you with tenfold.

I believe in you, .......
I KNOW you can do this.
I don't want to have to wait another x years to have this
conversation with you.
Know that I love you and know that it is unconditional.
It seem at times like I am working against you but know
that I am working with you, .........., to heal US.

Just for Today, ......., please do not smoke. Thank you
for listening to me.
I love you!


Your lungs, heart, liver, blood, mind and skin and every
living cell in you.
