smoking habit

November, 1981
Dear Workers of Our Lady,
     One of our new members went to the Shrine with us October 31st. It was his first time. He has been a heavy smoker for 35 years and unable to break the habit.
     Since returning from the Shrine he hasn't had a smoke, and has no desire to smoke. He said he didn't ask Our Blessed Mother for that grace. Of course, She knew how he wished to break the habit.

Dear Veronica,
I started smoking at 18 years old. I always loved the smell of smoke. By age 62 I smoked 3-4 packs a day. I even woke up at night from sleep desiring a cigarette. I was addicted. I had a terrible temper which I would unlease on anyone who would dare to take it away. I`d tell my friends leave me to my one bad poison. One day I fell down in the street twice. I was having a stroke. I prayed so hard to Our Blessed Mother in the hospital, to help me not to smoke. I couldn't do it on my own. I even went to be hypnotized. It didn`t work. 
I`d close my eyes take a deep breath, kiss the holy rose and pray. I could hardly believe I had no desire.
     I never had withdrawals of any bad day. All my friends & relatives can`t believe it.
It's 2 years and my health is fine. I tell everyone about my miracle & blessing from Our Lady of Roses.  
God Bless & keep you well, from all harm.
I pray the roses are sent all over the world to help more people who need it more than I. I wish I could meet you so I can tell many other things that have happened to me and others. Thank you for caring.
     Please send me more roses to give to others.
