hot here

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.

Stats Update: 275 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 275 days
Grams NOT smoked: 2750

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.

You deserve your trip to the UK mate. Try and keep in touch☺

Profile image Nana222 days ago

OMG. Is this trip work or personal fagoff? Youv'e kept very quiet about that!! Whatever the reason i do hope you have a fantastic time. Congratulations on 275 days smokefree my friend. I can't ever see you going back now. I'm so proud of you. You've worked really hard. Even if you can't get on here....just because you're away - doesn't mean you won't be in our thoughts. Safe travels fagoff!

Profile image fagoff20 May, 2015

I am definitely ready for a break,the last 3 months have been good but pretty trying really.anxieties better now but I think it takes a while to settle down again though.
I am very pleased that I haven't picked up a fag over this time.
I think I must be quite solid in my determination too not smoke because I haven't really come close to having a u no wot .that's pretty amazing for me. I've had a lot of help from my me upstairs and you lot have been great too,thanks so much.

Profile image Mr Lefty .20 May, 2015

Good effort Mate , just on 9 months , new job , new house , new life . I take My hat off to You .

Profile image Bruce C20 May, 2015

If AXL & you weren't both so stressed over it this wouild almost be funny.

I'd like to see you both carry on as non-smokers for the rest of your respective lives.

It's just a couple of typos guys. It's not worth either of you leaving the blogs over.

Profile image Nana2220 May, 2015

Fagoff, are you offended by Axl's typo? I believed you were joking around.

Profile image nanaturtle6 days ago

Fagoff-I just wanna wish you all the best with your Quit. It can get lonely out in the big ocean of life, you will be welcomed if you choose to return to shore. Take care ((( )))

Stats Update: 265 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 265 days
Grams NOT smoked: 2650
Total savings: $3,560.00
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. (-:

Profile image Nana2215 May, 2015

Great blog fagoff and great stuff being at 265 days smokefree!
I love your comeback to the smokers who hassle you about your e-cig. Let them stick that in their pipes and smoke it! LOL.

Profile image AXL15 May, 2015

Hi fagoff. I bet those smokers were rather vaping than smoking. 100 days to go to your breathday. Proud of you mate☺

Profile image Bruce C15 May, 2015

I think some smokers must be jealous of us. I have no other explanation for how negative they are about any quit method other than cold turkey.

Profile image Bub4415 May, 2015

Great going:)

Profile image Mumsy5915 May, 2015

Profile image Nana222 May, 2015

Oh, that's great fagoff. I have fingers, toes, and everything crossable crossed for you! A library card as well? Sounds like you're putting down roots alright. Good for you. It will be great when your beloved and pets can come up too - and will be so nice to have your own stuff around you again. I believe that you will never have to pick up a unowot ever again fagoff. You will fight your way through whatever life has in store for you - and you'll do it smokefree. Look at all you've achieved up to now - and i'll just bet you're not finished yet.
Do let us know how you get on with the house, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
