Smoking Problems

Many Years ago in the our community there was a woman who liked smoking very much and even if she was pregnant she still smoked and injected her self with mandrax and she inhaled tobacco and when anybody tried to talk to her,he was bitten by the woman's husband.The husband said that it was his wifes choice to stay healthy or smoke when it was time for the woman to bring the new child to the world many times she bared blind or deaf childrens because of her character that made me fill like it was my mother so.One morning i woked and went to the womans home and found her smoking the moment she saw me she dropped the bhang and came to meet me and deep down my heart i got wind off that it was the work of God.
