Hey fagoff. Only 8 days to go. Save a seat for me mate, I'm right behind you. Steak, eggs, onions and chips. My mouth is watering. Enjoy it mate. You deserve it☺

Profile image fagoff1 day ago

Had a client walk into the room yesterday, obviously just had a smoke, I nearly gagged man they stink .ooo yuk that used to be me. Even my wife has said I smell quite yummy now. I used to be very sensitive about smelling and avoided getting to close to people .don't need to bother anymore.yet another great reason not too unowot .

Having a better day today .I think I have got a full on cold ,not very pleasant but should pass soon hopefully .Had a horrible scary dream last nite ,don't know what that's about but was glad to wake up from it . I am curious ,hope it doesn't come across as critical .
Ive noticed quite a few bloggers seem in a great hurry to get off their NRT champix ,zyban etc. Whats the rush ?,some of us have smoked for 30/40 years or more ,that's a long time . What does 3 or 6 or 12 months matter in the big scheme of things, to keep using whatever we need to remain smokefree. Particularly when we are talking about the next 10/30 or however many years we are blessed with smokefree.Prior to this quit I have done the same with champix and zyban I didn't like the side affects and stopped using them early and ended up picking up a smoke again.
Not this time ,I aim to be come nicotine free ,when I am ready ,this has to be my quit ,no one else knows whats best for me ,though I do listen and consider others ideas.
Any way just a few thawts ,no offense meant .

Profile image Darren4 days ago

One more day, yes I would have said stop the NRT, but after thinking about it, as you say if you have smoked 30-40 years, what's the rush!! :)

Profile image Nickers764 days ago

So true Fagoff, and I am super glad to hear that you are feeling somewhat better today. I do hope this cold doesn't come to more than that! You just got to take YOUR quit journey as you are comfortable taking it :-) You're doing so great and what you are doing is working so keep up the great work just as you see fit to do it :-)

Profile image Axl2312614 days ago

Well said mate. I was one of those you mentioned. I was just keen to get off nrt. I realize now that I'd rather be on nrt than to risk my quit. Cheers mate, I've seen the light☺

Profile image cjtwo4 days ago

Thanks for your blog I will stay on my champix till the end unlike last time when I stopped taking it after 6weeks. have a great day :)

Profile image flower4 days ago

so true you know when you are ready to stop taking what ever you donot need to ask other people

Profile image Nana223 days ago

Wow, 89 days fagoff. You've been adding smokefree days while i wasn't looking. Fantastic. I agree with you re nrt. So much so that i've put myself back on patches fo a while. Still better than smoking.

Profile image SusyQ3 days ago

I so hear you! I smoked 30 years, there's no way that 3 months NRT will be enough! I am on my 8 months of lozenges. I expect to be on them for a wee while yet. Whatever I can do to keep my quit safe! Well done you! Not far to the hundy club now!

rough day

some days I feel like cancelling ,Was scratchy first thing, barked at the beloved. Went to the wrong place for a meeting twice ,new compressor arrived (-: something to feel good about,found its got a broken part on it )-:
has to go away to be fixed. Nor wester is blowing here and its hot. Im sneezing ,coughing and permanent runny nose. Have felt every emotion today from bad to good and back again.
But on the good side no cravings but even if I did nico&^%$# can go and get jumped on. I aint picking up. No matter what,I will get through this and feel better again. NOPE, Nope and Nope and OHAAT as well,just for today

Profile image josienz19584 days ago

It HAS to get better..............doesn't it??? Hope so, for your sake - best wishes x

Profile image Axl2312614 days ago

Hi fagoff. You get days like that. What can go wrong does go wrong. Tomorrow will be better mate☺

Profile image Thunderbirds are go4 days ago

Two blogs today, eh? You must be having a bad day. I'll give you a ((HUG)) but don't let your beloved see because it sounds like you two are annoyed with each other today. Good on ya for staying determined and always remember, the sun will come up tomorrow.

Profile image Fiona4 days ago

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO So awesome Fagoff! Keep rocking it. Yeah!

Profile image fagoff5 days ago

I must be a bit off today , got annoyed at my beloved and was a bit cross at her .Shes a list person, im a spontaneous person she loves the details I just do it, or don't. .I sometimes wonder how we ever get on ,but we do for 22 years now .We do still have our off days where we seem to clash ,but I do love her and wouldn't swap her for anything. Relationships are funny old things eh. You have to work at them and be flexible . Got some amends to make later (-: .On a good note I bought a HVLP spray gun to go with my new compressor ,which I will be using to repaint my old HQ.Thats like a big treat to celebrate quiting . Still NOPE. And grateful.

Profile image Nickers765 days ago

SO freaking exciting....sooooo close!!!!!!

Profile image Axl2312615 days ago

Only 12 more days mate! Being married is never boring, eh☺

Profile image Maanu5 days ago

I used to be a lot more spontaneous but I am slowly losing my facultys (memory) and finding I need to work from lists etc now or I forget stuff. Good idea to keep working at it that way you can have a happy and loving relationship for years to come.

Congrats On 88 days two big boned ladies (-8 They aren't fat they just have big bones

Profile image Axl23126116 November, 2014

Hi mate. That compressor will last a lot longer than $500 worth of tobacco. I'm starting to cough up that stuff too. I don't mind though, it's getting rid of all that @#$& from our lungs☺

Profile image aimee716 November, 2014

Super! That's great that you got a treat for yourself. Well done on all your stats :)

Profile image fagoff16 November, 2014

Profile image Nana2216 November, 2014

Good for you fagoff. It's a great reward for quitting and it will be of so much use to you over a long time, unlike unowots which went so quickly and needed to be replaced every day or 2.

Profile image fagoff13 November, 2014

Have been thinking about when to start getting off nicotine for good. So I have set my date at 2.12.14 ,That will be 100 days without a unowot. I think that will be a good number to have in my head to remind me I can go without unowots. So December the 2 its out with the ecig and in with the lozenges.

Profile image Nickers7613 November, 2014

YAY two celebrations in the one day :-) Well done Fagoff you are doing brilliantly!!! Keep up the great work :-)

82 fantastic days of unowotdom is fabulous fagoff, and it's good to start thinking about what comes next in this journey. Just be prepared to be a little flexible if you need to. As long as you're not unowoting, it's all good. Have a great day.
