That's a nice big pay rise for quitting fags. I been handing out vaporizers to friends and family to help them quit and still have more money than smoking dirty fags. ;)

Great you're feeling chirpy fagoff. That's certainly a tidy amount of moolah you've had to spend on much better stuff. Even better is the amount of toxins we've saved our lungs from.
Awesome job on 455 days of smokefreedom my friend. And long may "chipper" last.

Hey fagoff, and congrats on your 450 days smokefree. Well on the way to 5 Hundy now! Doesn't that feel surreal!!!!
You're right it's so good to have money to spend on what we want now - rather than what we "needed" to Smokes).
Keep it up my friend - and keep spending!!

Still NOPE. Ive just got home from a spiritual retreat ive been to all weekend at the Fransican retreat in Hillsborough.It was very inspiring and rejuvenating.I do feel calmer and more positive so it was well worth it. Since I moved up north I decided to be more open and ready for new positive experiences, anything for a happier more fulfilling life. Smoking may be off the agenda but having a better healthier life is much more possible now. Hope everyones doing ok.

Profile image nana5927 October, 2015

Its so cool to see these stats. The money side is so sad. I would have spent more because i hated buying just smokes so bought rubbish, plus many of us would have had a gp visit related to smoking. Thanks for sharing

Still NOPE. I think im finally shrugging off this horrible bug ive had for weeks and feeling a lot better. I also recognised that ive been stuck in a negative space for a while too. For me my mental ,emotional and spiritual condition are often reflected in my physical health. So ive been putting more effort into shrugging off negativity and embracing positivity. It seems to be working . Ive been busy building some outdoor furniture lately out of pine decking timber and I built a picnic table with a recycled rimu door I stained it all a light blue grey color and it does look good.The table came out quite antique looking .
Ive been reading a fantastic book by Richard Rohr,called learning to breath under water .Hes right on the money for what causes addictions and also how to overcome it .Its very inspirational, spiritual and practical too which I find more useful than some airy fairy books that are out there.
Great to see so many newbies on here .Its so wonderful to be free of the dreaded unowots, and there is so much support on here for everyone.
And we don't all have to be the same we are allowed to to find what works best for us and be accepted by others ,I like that. (-:
Have a great unowot free day peeps.

Profile image Ambs9321 October, 2015

Profile image Nana2221 October, 2015

I agree it is so great to be free of the unowots! Pleased to hear you're feeling a bit better fagoff. Sounds like you have some great projects to keep you out of trouble, and i bet you feel good knowing that you did that!
Have a great smokefree day.

Still NOPE. Gotta get used to being unemployed again now. Just have to remember to take it one day at a time. I don't find it easy doing nothing and I get bored very quickly watching rubbish on the box. I have a few projects to do so I will focus on those and taking it easy for while. I will keep an eye on the job front but wont be rushing into any thing. Might need to be on here a bit more often.

Profile image smokefreemep17 October, 2015

Hey fagoff.. its not easy on the job front at the mo good that you have a few projects. Congratulations on your stats :)

Profile image Nana2217 October, 2015

Fagoff my friend i just love seeing your brilliant numbers up there. 420 days of awesomeness - and no matter what else happens - they are hard earned and yours to keep.
At least the time you have can be used well to get your projects done, and enjoy the down time while you can i reckon.
I for one would be delighted if you spent more time here.
NOPE and ODAAT and a great smokefree weekend. So proud of you!

Profile image nanaturtle17 October, 2015

You will be most welcome on here more often fagoff. More the merrier I say. Stsy strong-awesome going :-)

Profile image yas0117 October, 2015

Wonderful stats.
Sorry to hear re job. Fingers x all comes right for you :)

Profile image aroha17 October, 2015

Hi fagoff, I hope those projects keep you busy. Congrats on your stats. I understand finding it difficult - when I have holidays I always book in some type of work in advance :-/ I'm terrible at not working.

Profile image Darren17 October, 2015

As you say keep doing things, I find boredom is a huge nicodemon enabler.

Stats Update: 414 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 414 days
Grams NOT smoked: 4140
Total savings: $5,520.00
Its still NOPE for me, pretty good really as the last few months have had some extremely trying moments. the new job has not worked out as well as I hoped and I finally had to realize that and so have resigned.Not an easy decision as new jobs at my age are not numerous and I know what its like constantly applying for jobs and having no luck. But my health both mental and physical are more important than staying somewhere that's no goof for me. On the positive side we like the coromandel peninsular and our new /old house that we have been renovating, so we plan to stay here.
I have had the odd thought of picking up a unowot when things were really tuff but thank God I didn't have to .Ive been quite crook with this constantly evolving bug that's going round but I seem to be getting better now and im finding it easier to stay positive a lot more. I havnt been up to much on the exercise front for ages now but im hoping too get more into that soon, its a bit difficult with short breath and not much energy.
its good to be alive and especially smokefree eh.

Profile image fagoff11 October, 2015

: good for me" hehe

Profile image Bub4411 October, 2015

Hi Fagoff it certainly is good to be alive and smokefree even through those trying moments good luck with your job hunting NOPE is the key and you've proved this by those 414 awesome days :)

Profile image Nana2211 October, 2015

And that shows the inner strength you have fagoff. So many people would just stick at a job they loathed out of fear of change. You know when it's right or wrong for you and i admire you for being proactive. I do hope you start feeling better and that theses loathesome bugs will leave you alone.
Your stats are so awesome my friend. Be ever so proud of them as i am. You have come such a long way in many ways in the last 414 days.
Take care fagoff.

Profile image nanaturtle11 October, 2015

Good on you for not smoking during these challenging times. Job issues sure can be stressful. I am trying to find one at present and it is not easy.

Profile image nana5911 October, 2015

Thanks for sharing. Reading these blogs lets me know there are ways around stress rather than smoking

Profile image AXL11 October, 2015

Mate, mate! Still one day ahead of me! Lol. Great to see you're still going strong. Way to go fagoff☺

Profile image jenstar11 October, 2015

well done fagoff - i decided a couple of years ago to never again stay in a role that wasn't happy in - it really isn't worth the added stress that comes with an unhappy work life, and you spend so much time there. Congrats on your stats they are looking great!

The Coromandel is awesome! Jealous!!
