Made it to dubai, nearly 40 degrees whew can't stay outside to long.was a long trip but did have two short stops on the way much easier now I don't have to obsess about when I can have the next u no wot. I managed a couple of puff stops on my vapor but didn't even need any lozenges on the longest flights about 9 hours and 6 hours.hope everyone's doing OK.
One word says it all NOPE.
but wait theres more
hehe the benefits of quiting keep adding up .I realized today thet my blood circulation has improved heaps I have very salmon colored fingers now and don't have freezing feet when I go to bed. I gave blood again today and it did feel better knowing it must be a lot better than previous times. its not cause im a saint or anything ( maybe just a little) hehe I have hemochromatosis ,I cant process iron so I have to be bled off to dilute my blood and apparently its really good for newborns ,whod of guessed eh.Off to catch a plane shortly see you back in july.

Another 5 days bites the dust ,over 9 months now ,wow really didn't believe I could not smoke. Life is way better for me in every way really especially health, thank goodness, especially using the dreaded vapour (ecig) .Its been an interesting ride so far, at times really tuff but ive hung in there and not picked up a unowot when I really thought I wanted too.
Off to England ,Scotland and Ireland tomorrow really looking forward too that.Not sure how often Illl be able to get back on here but ill try when I can. We can stay quit if we really want to, and are willing to do whatever we need too.

only 100 more till one year.that seems a lot more doable than 265 days ago. loads of pluses from not smoking. Way better health, and it was pretty bad 8 months ago two bouts pneumonia poor breathing constant violent coughing that sometimes made me pass out for a few seconds, was really scarry ,, more money (apparently) don't stink anymore,on and on etc. ive had a simple quit program that ive stuck too. NOPE use vapor ( ecig) and especially NOPE.
Seems to be working so far .I don't miss the fags at all ,still like the smell of others smoking but no real temptation too have one.Its funny at times ive been hassled by smokers for vaping,its not the real thing.thats rite I say you can keep the real thing I prefer better health and living longer thanx.

Also 8 calendar months today as well .Pretty pleased about that .Back in chch for weekend .Having friends over for a bit of a sendoff ,though we still havnt found a permanent place to live in thames yet. Bit of a significant weekend for me as Monday will be 25 years since I last had a drink too. Very stoked about that. I guess we can do anything if we really put our minds and whole self to it. Hope you all have a great Anzac weekend.
