  1. thought I'd update. After running tests, blood work a colonoscopy, an endoscopy, and an upper G.I. the specialist all concur that there is no Krohn's and that it is a Ulcerative Colitis that is also irritated by reaction to lactose. What this means is daily meds (pills) twice a day, plus...
  2. Spoke with my mother tonight. She lives in Japan, I live in Florida. She's been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Doctors told her she has 6 months, maybe a little more to live. So you can imagine I'm feeling pretty bad right now,...actually pretty numb. Don't look forward to all this...
  3. Lets talk plain vaping for a minute. Since going bridgeless on my atty's I've been getting great performance out of them. I'm also finding my PT from HotVapes.com invaluable. I don't know if its 5v or not, but it blows away battery operation each and every time. I think its higher because the...
  4. ....how did I end up with my blog being entered three times? I tried deleting and editing but got a message stating I didn't have permission to do so. Must be part of the ugrade taking place. At least now I am able to edit this post. Maybe tomorrow I will be able to delete it, lol. Oh upgrades...
  5. At work right now and its been a long night. I am wiped out. But at least I can feel good about being smoke free for 55 days. Got my best friend, he is John too, into vaping. Was able to aquire a Blu Cig kit for him and gave it to him last night. Hopefully it will works out. He is one of those...
  6. Been a few weeks since I posted here. Just didn't really find the time to and when I did I wasn't really in the mood. Maybe I'll try just some short entries more often. Said that before, we'll see how that goes. Main thing is I bought a Tornado on the classifieds from Firhill. Was very cheap...
  7. Well where do we stand today? I'm at 29 days smoke free! Awesome, feels like I'm actually accomplishing something here. Of course I have spent way more than I ever thought I would on vaping and supplies, and of course you justify if all with "hey its to help me stop smoking". Had an atty die...
  8. Yes, my third week smoke free. Feels good knowing I made it this far despite all the little mental dramas I've suffered or put myself through. I'm finding things go different day to day. Seems I will have good days where I am not chain vaping or stressing over nic levels or blah, blah, blah,...
  9. Not vaping as much today. Felt pretty good actually. Slept in (was up late on ECF as usual lately;)) Weather was horrendous today, heat and humidity that kills on contact. But I got the yard mowed (front and back) and got a little exercising in. Good day overall, feeling pretty good right...
  10. Spent half an hour typing my latest blog entry, and when I went to post I got the "Server is too busy" message and lost it all!!!:facepalm: ARRRRGGGGG!!!!!!! Not going to do it all over so here is the long and short of it. 1-Vaping, it's a habit. Better than smoking, but still a habit....
  11. Well another week and still no cigarettes. Feeling good about that. Still get occassional thoughts about having one, but have no real desire to follow through. I am not willing to go and buy a pack just to have one smoke. The thought of back pedaling repulses me. And I am not about to bum a...
  12. Well had a little time so that I would post some more. As I mentioned yesterday, I am starting to notice smells really standing out. The cafeteria at work is starting to smell a heck of a lot nicer that I can recall in the past. Seems I can smell the food from further away than before. And I am...
  13. With all my ranting and raving, two points I forgot to add. First, I am not coughing as much as I used to. When I lay down to sleep, I will have a small coughing fit. It is slowly disipating, coughing less. Also when awake and walking about too. Not sputtering as much. Also less phlegm being...
  14. Well it has been one whole week now and no cigarettes. There have been urges, but not strong. More like the thought of having one. I suppose its the lingering thought of the satisfaction I held in the past when I had a smoke. Its not anything I can't overcome, it doesn't eat away at me, but it...
  15. Well its Monday afternoon. Woke up and started vaping, not really out of physical need, mostly psychological. Still smoke free so far. Will update in a day or two with some thoughts/insights that have been rolling around in my head. BTW, still smoke free. only had the urge twice last night at...
