Stats Update: 804 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 804 days

Total savings: $13,400.00
Wow I didn't realize id cracked 800 days, and not wasted all that money.
I'm still NOPING it along just keep doing what works for me.I sat beside a mate yesterday who was smoking it wasn't a pleasant experience at all.
I had zero interest in having one so I was pleased about that.
I have been enjoying better health lately and the warmer weather too.
My doctor thinks I probably have copd and will need to use the grunty inhallors always. I wish I had knocked off the dam unowots a lot sooner but I wasn't able to .The negative effects of smoking are insidious slowly working away inside us with every puff we have, by the time we notice them its sometimes too late to reverse the damage.
I am glad to be free of the unowots now and have learnt to practice acceptance with my current reduced physical abilities.
I have found Peace and contentment are possible in any circumstances, but sometimes require a bit of effort to achieve, especially acceptance.

Well done Fagoff. Very impressive.

Like you, i have done damage to my lungs. Was not aware that there was a problem until well after i stopped.
I participated in a study done by Medical Students on ex smokers, & my lung capacity was just satisfactory.. I was toid that if i was still smoking, i would now be in trouble

We may have dodged a bullet. The Jury is still out for me. 41 years is not going to repair it'self anytime soon.

Anyway. Congratulations on your 804 days. Impressive work.

Thanks for sharing your great stats 😊

Profile image Nana226 November, 2016

Hi mate - a belated congrats on more than 800 days smokefree!
I hear you about the damage we've caused ourselves, but you're absolutely right about accepting and making the most of health we do still have. And we know wer'e doing the best we can to stop further damage.
You deserve to be so very proud. I know i'm proud of what you've achieved.

On another topic......I watched and enjoyed the programme on Jean Batten.
I'm ashamed to say i looked ever so hard.....but just couldn't pick which backside was yours! lol.

Keep being proud my friend. You so deserve to be.

Not long now till 2 years. Feeling a bit more perky today ,I picked up another chest infection which takes the fun out of life .Been on the antibots and feeling much better now. Really enjoying the longer days and more sun here in coromandel. I was in Raro recently which was lovely and warm. I couldn't resist checking out customs on the way through. Fags still $ 5 a pack in Raro ,I noticed your only allowed one 50 gm of baccy or 50 cigs coming back into NZ. That would have peed me off 2 years ago but not now,hehe. Hope everyones doing well beating the nicodemon. I wish id been able to do it 20 years ago .It is great to be off the stinky things now though, it hasn't always been an easy ride but ive managed to stick with it and have no intention of ever picking up a unowot ever again.
It can be done just got to stick at it. NOPE NOPE NOPE.

Profile image Maanu19 August, 2016

Kia orana Fagoff or is it Malo lelei Great to see you doing so well in your quit and in your life. I'm off overseas (oz then indonesia) soon for some warmer climates. I don't like cold NZ winters

Profile image nanaturtle23 August, 2016

Hi fagoff-good the infections being dealt with. Would have been harder to shake if you still entertained the unowots.
Happy 2nd Breathday 😝 too! Silent one 🌟
I hope You're having a Good day xo πŸŽ‚πŸ’πŸ”†

Still NOPE. Nearly 2 years .Health is much better than 2 years ago ,but I am on a potent inhallor to help with breathing, bit annoying but that's the eventual cost of constant smoking really. I am grateful to be alive and smokefree. Have had to acclimatize to living life a bit slower and no strenuous activity.It amazes me to see so many young people smoking these days, a bit sad when you know the likely eventual result.

Profile image Bub447 August, 2016

nice to see those days stacking up yes its sad to see the younger smoking we were there once and didnt want to know the risks

Profile image Nana227 August, 2016

Hi fagoff. It's so awesome to see your brilliant stats today, and to know you're sooo close to the 2 years!
I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble still with breathing, but so happy that you've managed to kick the unowots. We can't do much about what is - except to be happy and grateful we're not making it worse eh.
Congrats on your 715 days smokefree my friend. That's something to always be so very proud of - and i'm very excited to see you so close to the next awesome milestone.
Love & hugs xx

Profile image smokefreemep7 August, 2016

Still nope. Getting close to 2 years. My health is way better, 40 years of regular smoking did do damage to my lungs .The doc has put me on some different medicine a puffer, Spiriva which has made a huge difference to being able to breath properly. Now I can breath in deeply and exhale for ages ,he reckons I may have to stay on it longterm which is a bugger but its great to breath properly again.I did a blood test and chest exray recently doc said to see him again in 6 weeks ,he didn't ask me to come in sooner so cant be any bad news from the tests, which is a relief. That's the trouble with tobacco the damage happens usually slowly and by the time you notice the harm your well down the track. It is good to be free of it .Its amazing how many people I see chewing on the nicotine gum years after quiting smoking, it reminds me that as long as I'm not smoking tobacco I'm doing good.Life keeps trucking on and its good to be alive and smokefree.

Profile image Thyme4me30 June, 2016

Great post fagoff and inspirational numbers. Isn't it ironic that many people mention money as a reason to give up the fags and yet very quickly as we move through our quit we appreciate the small things we hadn't noticed before like breathing deeply. I am so pleased you are enjoying your smokefree like and your post a reminder to us all

Profile image nanaturtle1 July, 2016

I agree fagoff
Its good to be alive and Smokefree
Congtats on Your achievements -Top blog
Stay strong πŸ˜ƒ πŸŒŸπŸ‘

Profile image AXL1 July, 2016

Hi mate. Great to see you're still going well in your quit. You should be on 678 days smokefree though. There was a glitch a month or so ago and some quit start dates had somehow changed. You quit the day before me which would make it 23 Aug 14. Go into "edit" on your home page and check your quit date. At the moment I'm 3 days ahead of you....you don't want that do you! You're doing great fagoff.

Profile image clarence the cat1 July, 2016

All I can say is hear hear!! So glad Spiriva is helping you. It has made my life bearable too. To be able to take a really deep breath and exhale for ages is something we all take for granted and by smoking we destroy that ability. Great blog Fagoff!

Profile image Nana221 July, 2016

You are doing good fagoff. You are doing fantastic!
Rapidly heading toward the 6 Hundy now. How cool is that!!!
Stay well and stay happy.
