God I'm good!... Just ask me!!!

:-P *GiGGLeS*

Hello. my name is VBF and I am a cigarettoholic...

Audience says "Hi VBF" has been 5 days since my last cigarette!!!!

*Audience CHEERS*

How good am I??? 5 days!!!!!!!??? FIVE DAYS FIVE DAY FIVE DAYS I TELL YOU!!!
Can you believe it? Coz I can't! It's just INSANE! I must be NUTS!... Oh that's right! I AM!!!! :-)

*sigh* So I can't believe I've actually done it! I've quit! And I GOT PAST DAY 3!!!

When ever I'm trying to quit a habit of mine, I usually CAN NOT get past the third day!!! Seriously... I am constantly buggering my diet on Day three!
It's the hardest day ever, because on the first day, it's exciting to make a drastic change for the better, so it's a bit like a fun challenge really.

The second day, you're so proud of yourself because you got through the first day, and you realise "Hey! I CAN Do this!"

But on the 3rd day... it's like... "OK IT'S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE!!!! I NEED MY FIX FFS!!!!!"

It's sooooo true!!!!

BUT!!! Once I get through the third day... my body seems to have adjusted as if to say "FINE! Be healthy! See if I care ffs!"
Third day is the HUMP day... and I'm sooooooooo glad I got through it!!!

You proud of me? *Flutters Eyelashes* Girl 3

Surprisingly... I haven't been gaining weight like I thought I would! I've been craving for nothing but junk since I quit - to occupy my mouth ffs! BUT Because we are so broke... we can't afford any treats, which means I HAVE to do without! LOL! So I've pretty much quit JUNK FOOD TOOO! :-O!!!

I've actually lost weight... because I've been pacing around the house, cursing under my breath - craving cigarettes! So without even realising... I've been getting exercise!!! And exercise + stress = WEIGHT LOSS! :-) YIPPEEEE!!! SO I'm not complaining!

PLUS!!! I have actually been cleaning the house!!! Only to keep myself busy of course... *phhh* as if I would clean for the sake of a clean house ffs! :-P

So I'll be Damned.... Taking up smoking was probably the best thing i ever did... because when it came time to quit... EVERYTHING changed for the better! :-)
I'm healthier... I'm keeping active... I'm saving money... Hubby wants to kiss me a lot more coz I don't stink of cigarette smoke *GiGGLeS* ... My teeth wont rot... I'm losing weight.... And I'm a better housewife!!!!

ooooo did I mention I've quit drinking too? :-)!

Yeah... I'm not a huge drinker these day's anyway... so it's no big deal! But I have ocassions coming up that I have promised myself not to drink at! Hubby even brought home a carton of Bundy Rums (My Favourite... which i like to call 'Liquid Chocolate' Because it's DELISH!!!) He got them for me as a Congratulations on quitting smoking!!!!

Bless his little cotton socks the sweetheart... BUT I'M NOT READY FOR ALCOHOL!!! Not while I'm trying to quit smoking.... no siree!!! I smoke like a chimney when i'm on the piss!!!

So I let him go down the road to his mates house and he shared the carton with them! *GiGGLeS*

Nuts aye??? I have no idea where all this discipline has come from!!!

Actually I lie.... I do know... and I should probably tell you...

I've been keeping quiet about this, because I don't want to jinx anything as I've been let down in the past! But people have been like "OMFG are you ok VBF???, It's not like you to be such a health freak!" And it's TRUE! It is not like me to be a health freak AT ALL!!!

And the truth is... I'm not doing it for me!

Hubby and I have decided to try for a baby again! :-) *hlkajhdufhwhefhabmns* SOOOO exciting!!!

We've had 2 miscarraiges in the past, which has been very devastating for me!
But this time, I'm doing everything properly to avoid any complications!!!
YES!! Thats WHY I have quit smoking and alcohol and Junk food! :-)

To be honest... I could never do it for myself, I don't give a rats arse about my own health (sad but true) but I'd change it all in a heart beat for the life of my own child! :-) THAT'S what's keeping me strong! :-)
Crazy eh? It's amazing the sacrifices we make for someone elses life!!!

EVEN Though I'm not even pregnant yet... and haven't even met the little shit! :-P *GiGGLeS*
I've even signed up to a preconception website and have a personalised ovulation calender plan!!! It guides me through the process and tells me when I'm most likely to fall pregnant and all the rest of it!
I wont get into details because some of the stuff they want to know is SOOO gross!!!


'What is your state of mucus?'

Damp & Sticky?
Dry & Sparse
Thick & Tacky?
Wet and more Profuse?
Wet, Stretchy & Slippery / raw egg white?


Oh crap! I just got into the details didn't I!

Sorry about that, I've got serious problems!


But HECK NO! I aint going as far as checking my mucus every week ffs! YUCK!!!!! Just tell me when Hubby will get lucky!!! :-P

Ahhhh so there you go!!! I'm all set up and ready to start cooking a bun in the oven!!!

ISN'T IT JUST EXCITING!!!!????!!!!??????? :-)


Have a great weekend kids!!!

I'm proud of you! You're not smoking. You're exercising! You're cleaning the house!

But no drinking? That's just crazy talk, VBF...

Utter Basketcase said...

Joey - *GiGGLeS* I refuse to give birth to a drunk baby ffs! I mean COME ON!!! At least wait until the kid is 3 before it has it's first beer!!! :-P xx

Lady in red said...

lol you are so funny

I gave up smoking for my first child but I actually ended up smoking more than ever during the pregnancy as I was so stressed out at the time but by the time he was born I was down to 1 per day then when he was 8 months I had my last cigarette hes now 20yrs!!

Utter Basketcase said...

Lady - WOW, Good for you! I love hearing that it IS possible to quit for EVER! Well... for 20 years and counting anyway! :-) My Mum smoked through her pregnancy with me too! I know plenty of people who have smoked during pregnancy and their babies have turned out fine!

But it's important to me to keep things as safe as I can because I just can not risk another miscarriage! xx

nitebyrd said...

TMI, babe, on the mucus! UGH!

You are rockin' with the no smoking! YAY! for you! (((HUGS & Sloppy Kisses)))

I'll add you to my Healing candle so you'll get some positive energy coming your way. For you and your future little giggler!

Utter Basketcase said...

Nite - *GiGGLeS* Wha? Whad I say? :-P *GiGGLeS* I can't help it ffs! I can't keep gross stuff a secret! :-D

Ooooo Thank you!!! Now no lighting cigarettes with that candle of yours! *sigh* xx

CrystalChick said...

WOW ~ awesome! I quit when I was pregnant, actually it made me horribly sick. But then like an ass I went back after awhile. Ick.
Finally, I decided when I had to start taking some hormonal medicines that it was an added risk to keep smoking so I quit and even tho I didn't stay on the meds long term I never went back to the cigs.
That was atleast 9 years ago. Hubby quit too but has had a harder time with it and even had hypnosis but it's been 2 years so I guess he's good now.

As for the drinking, once you have kiddies, you'll be needing a night of 'Kings' once in awhile. LOL Either that or a small flask that is easily concealed. HAHA You know, just for a swig here and there as the little buggers are wearing you down. LOLOLOL

OMG... on Ron's page I commented that sometimes you wander off from the computer for whatever reason and then come back to find you're still on someones page and they must think you are stalking them! LOL That JUST happened. LOL My girlfriend stopped by and I wandered away to do more chatting and left your page up. But now I'm back....
And now I'm going again. This time I'll log off for real. Have a happy *giggly* weekend. And have fun trying for the baby. ;)

Utter Basketcase said...

Crystal - I SOOO Love your comments!!!

GEES Smoking is a terrible addiction aint it!! It's just so damn addictive and hard to give up! Good on you and your Hubby for giving up! The more I hear about the quitting the stronger i get! :-)

LMFAO!!! I'll have Hubby set up a game of Kings next to the hospital bed once the kid is out! :-P *GiGGLeS*

LOL!!! Oh so you're not stalking me??? :-( Dammit! :-P It's ok... I can't work out my stats for the life of me!!! I would never have noticed! xx

Ron said...

Ok...can I just tell you how much I LOVE your friggin blog!!!

I feel like I'm doing DRUGS!

OK...and where did you find the ballerina??? I SCREAMMED when I saw her. She is so damn cute!!! And you know ME...I want to BITE her!!! I can just sit here for hours watching her dance!

Hey, that's GREAT about your cigarette freedom. I'm SOOO proud of you!

You go, GIRL!

And I'm so excited to hear about your thoughts on having a baby!!!!

And you know ME and babies!!!!

(can I rent it?)

Thank you for such a FUN, HAPPY, and WONDERFUL post, dear lady!!!

Jeff B said...

Good for you going smokeless!

Never started myself and consider that to be a real blessing. I hear its tough to give up. You've got a great motivating factor on your side though. Keep it up, your body and future baby will thank you for it.

Oh and no need to root for me - That's MY job! :-P xx

Rhea said...

Oh, no, you didn't just say that, did you? Rootin. YIkes.

I don't think I have an accent...I'm sure I do, but I know it isn't as bad as some of these small town people around here. I'm from the big city. lol Kind of.

I'll have to record myself talking and see what you think.

Utter Basketcase said...

Ronnie - GMFAO!!! You are too cute!!!

HAHAHAHA I Just realised what Balerina you're talking about! I totally forgot that I put that in there! :-) I was thinking... The devils not dancing? *GiGGLeS* Blonde!!!

It's sweet isn't it? I got it from Smiley Central! It's such a cute little wesite! You should check it out! :-)

hahaha of course you can rent my baby, as long as you promise not to bite it! :-P *GiGGLeS*

Thank you Farty Pants! :-) xx

Utter Basketcase said...

Rhea - *GiGGLeS* Oh TOTALLY! :-) I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to hear your voice! :-) xx

Rhea said...

Hmmm...I think "love to hear" really means "love to make fun of" hehehe

Utter Basketcase said...

Rhea - HAHAHAHA No of course not! :-P Hey... your accent can not POSSIBLY be as bad as mine!!! Do you honestly like that way Steve Irwan spoke? :-P *GiGGLeS* xx

Vi said...

Okay, the junk food not having... the smoking not having...

But giving up the BUNDY???????

Now that DID surprise me!

You GO girl!!!!

Utter Basketcase said...

Aunty Vi - *GiGGLeS* .... ok so maybe I mite be having a few sips of one now... *blushes* Juat a few!!! :-P xx

Rhea said...

I do like the way Steve Irwin spoke! (His death was so sad!)

I also love Claire's voice on LOST. Do you watch that show?

Utter Basketcase said...

Rhea - OMG ARE YOU KIDDING!!! HUBBY AND I ARE OBSESSED WITH LOST!!! :-O!!!!! *GiGGLeS* Well I certainly sound more like Claire than I do Steve! But still.. I hate the sound of my own voice!

COOL You must be HEAPS ahead of us in Lost! SO jealous if you are!!!

We're up to, the episode where Sun just had her baby!!! xx

Rhea said...

I'm totally obsessed with LOST too!! YAY! Someone to share my obsession with! (Hubby's not into the show, so I search desperately for people to talk about it with).

You're up to where we are, then, I think. That's the last episode I remember as well. We haven't had any new episodes in the last few weeks but they start up again in a week or two.

Rhea said...

Who's your favorite character?

I love Sayid...and DESMOND!! Claire's great too. So many fun characters to love...or love to hate. Scary Ben is incredible.

Utter Basketcase said...


LOL!!! I just yelled out to Hubby... "HUnny we have another Lost fan, IN TEXAS!!!"

Seriously he came running over and was "who?, what does she know? are they ahead? ARE THEY???"

*GiGGLeS* Yep we are total nutters over it omfg!

YOU ARE UP TO THE SAME AS US??? Wow thats weird!!! But I'm relieved! :-) We aren't missing out on much then! :-)

SAWYER all the way is my favourite! He is SUCH a goof ball! LOVE HIM! hmmmm I also like Jack! But I'm starting to hate Kate! She doesn't deserve either of them .... tart!!! *GiGGLeS* John Lock use to be my Fave... but he has gone a tad mental! :-P

OH AND CHARLIE :-(... I frikken Bawled my eyes out when he died!!!

OH this is sooo great!!! Before you, me and Hubby were the only ones I knew that were into Lost! :-) xx

Utter Basketcase said...

OMG Actually HURLEY is my fave!!! What am I on about! I Can't believe I forget about him! :-)

I just want to cuddle him to death! :-) xx

Rhea said...

Sawyer has some wonderful, hilarious comments that are just so mean they're funny.

Jack is great. I wanted Kate to end up with him. Kate's complicated. Sometimes I like her, sometimes I don't.

I cried when Charlie died also. I didn't want that to happen, but at least he went down in a blaze of glory.

Hurley is so funny and such a sweetie. The actor who plays him has a blog on blogger. I'll find it and send you the link.

I hated Juliet at first, but now I like her more.

I love all the mysteries on the island...and how evertime they answer one, ten more pop up. It's crazy!

Lady in red said...

my eldest is hooked on Lost he downloads it and watches on his laptop. I have seen bits here and there but not enughto figre out who anyone is.

Utter Basketcase said...


My heart is racing!!! :-O

hahaha I agree with you on all of that! I use to love Kate... but she's so frikken indecisive it bugs me! LOL

And isn't CRAZY how one closed door opens another!!! It's just insane how more mysteries keep popping up! But I love it! :-D

ooo I hope you find his blog! omg omg omg omg!!! :-) *GiGGLeS* xx

Utter Basketcase said...

Lady - Oh!!! but it's the BESTEST show ever!! :-) I feel terrible that you have missed out on it! You need to watch it from the start!!! BUT I warn you... it's VERY ADDICTIVE! :-) xx

Rhea said...

Here it is:

Utter Basketcase said...

Rhea - OMFG Are you fucking serious???? OMFG!!!!!! I think I'm going to drop dead with excitement!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Utter Basketcase said...

OMFG OMFG!!! I left a comment EEEEEEEKKKK I'm so star struck right now!!!! LOL!!!!!

I LOVE YOU RHEA!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you for like making my WHOLE YEAR!!! :-) xx

Rhea said...

ROFL VBF, you're cracking me up. Calm down, girl, calm down! You're going to hyperventilate!!

I was pretty excited too when a friend told me about Jorge/Hurley's blog. I had forgotten about it and then just remembered it again.

Utter Basketcase said...

*GiGGLeS InSaNeLy*

I can't believe he doesn't have like A GAZILLION comments!!! :-O!!!

We mustn't tell any one! We must keep it a secret and make him fall in love with us enough to fly us over to meet him!

Quick!!! I'll delete these comments like it never happened!!! You... you go and try and convince his commenters that it is NOT REALLY HIM to get rid of them!

And then... all shall go to plan!!

:-P *GiGGLeS* Only joking!!! I may be nutty but I'm not THAT nutty! :-D LMFAO!!

So... Do You know any other famous bloggers? *Flutters Eyelashes* :-P *hehehe* xx

Rhea said...

I'm afraid I don't really know any other famous bloggers. I have run across a few authors I like, but I don't think they're super famous.

I like your plan. Let's start a rumor that's not really him, then we can enjoy it for ourselves! I'd LOVE a trip to hawaii, great idea!!!

I like your crazy plans.

Rhea said...

AND, you have to post YOUR accent now!! Tag, you're it!

Utter Basketcase said...


Oh ffs... record my voice??? But I don't have the equipment to! :-(

I'll have to buy a microphone! (nice save really... gets me out of it for now! :-P) HEEEEEHEEEEEE xx
