Lion Red Red Blooded




Lion Red - Red Blooded.

Showed this to a friend who was to young to remember it. Adding to Music 2 because it's pretty catchy. It was a NZ ad from probably the 80's.

We are red blooded blood brothers.

Check it out if you haven't seen.

Added label "Eightys" "Alcohol".

Really with the amount of publicity about how bad tobacco is and the price rises they really need to concentrate on ALCOHOL a lot more. Make it as expensive as tobacco or something. Alcohol causes way more violence than cannabis or tobacco. Legalise Cannabis. But they never will because tobacco is similar and they are trying to get rid of that by 2025. They should decriminalise anyway. And provide medicinal.

Giving Up Smoking.

I stopped smoking on the 20th of September 2010. This was the fourth time this year that I had tried to give up. The first time time I did 11 days. The second time I did 30 Days. And the third time 32 Days. This time i'm sitting on about 60 days. Also this means that i haven't smoked for 4 months total out of 2010.

60 days is ok. I mean i'm wondering a little right now what a cigarette would be like. But I can so far seem to handle not actually smoking one.

I imagine if I started again it would be ever so hard to stop yet once more and that 60 days would be wasted.

One thing I think about is that things will change. The longer I go without one I think the desire should go away and i'll become less interested. My thoughts about cigarettes will change. It's like counting the days until it's so far that it's real hard to count and counting doesn't matter so much i guess.

I'm always guessing.

26 Days. Third Attempt. Quiting Smoking.

It's been 26 Days since I last had a smoke. Yay for me.

Advice for smokers trying to quit. Um. Try zyban. It's a pill u take or see your doctor and ask him to recommend a smoking pill.

This time I didn't really use zyban. One thing u should do is get rid of all your tobacco. Have none around. That includes friends with tobacco. Have no contact with tobacco at all.

I don't know how I was able to resist the temptation. It's like i had a voice or thought go off like "have a cigarette" and I was able to ignore it and it wasn't to painful and wasn't in control of me.

Having something to occupy yourself could help. I played alot of World of Warcraft. I used it as a crutch. And maybe some sort of reward system could help. Like rewarding yourself for how long a period of time you can go for without a cigarette.

I still count the days. So i'm still hanging out. Reading this won't really help you give up smoking but you should keep trying. I'll try think of some things.

I did find when i had a friend come round who smokes and my thinking was driving me crazy to have a cigarette that nicotine gum helped. It took a little while to kick in but it soon quietened everything down.

In NZ u can get nicotine gum really easy through some quitline. So i'm sure it will be easy to get in other countries hopefully. I found my first few pieces were completely digusting. It burnt. But it began tasting quite nice when i came back to it a few weeks later. It did help. But I have stopped using it as well though i might still for real tough times.

SO thats me 26 days. I'll keep writing. 23 of May I stopped. Had my last cigarette b4 I went to bed and that was me the next morning.

Quitting Smoking.

So I heard about a drug that you could get prescribed through a doctor that helps you give up smoking. It's called Zyban. It cost me $3 dollars for the prescription plus the doctors fee of about $40.

So far, I got it in January, I gave up for 11 days, the first time in 16 years, then started again, then I quit again for 32 days, then started again, and now i've quit again and i'm upto day 8.

It's still a struggle not smoking. I think about it often at the moment. I didn't use the drug much this time just took a few doses b4 i quit and then quit and stopped taking it. I am using nicotine lozenges. I have to this time beat my record of first 11 days and then 32 days.

At the moment a 30 gram of tobacco in New Zealand costs NZ $25.50.

Schizophrenia.


I have Schizophrenia. Thats what alot of doctors have told me. My work here on this page represents that for most perhaps. I can see it myself. I'm on medication. I guess i'll write here to bring awareness to the condition. Basically it's a mental illness that can include things like hallucinations and voices.

Some people would have seen the movie A Beautiful Mind with Russel Crowe. This could be used perhaps as something of what it is like. For myself it's like everything is garbled. I generally feel very sick all the time and it's hard to work and do even simple things. Creativity is something that doesn't come easily. I really don't know what to say about schizophrenia other than if the doctors are correct in there diagnoses of me that it can be very painful. Actually one doctor said the pain was all in my mind, as in i'm not in real pain so possibly it's not painful at all i'm just imagining it. Would I know when I was in pain?

How about that. I have a very poor memory now. Thats one thing i've noticed. Looking back at my life I wasn't very smart as alot of the decisions i've made have lead to my illness. It's a poor life for me now compared to what I had. Everyones reality is different. For one person the world is an awesome place to the other it's really bad. My life has degraded substantially. Most of my health problems can be traced back to marijuana and tobacco. I would say I had problems before that though that made the decisions for me to start smoking.

Skitzophrenia. It's a bad uncurable thing that affects many people. I haven't said much about it really. It does make life bad though. I hope you live the life of the dream yourselfs. I can never experience what could of been. I hope that I can live to the age of 72 which will be the year 2050 so I can still experience alot and have at least something to say for what happened. I still smoke cigarettes so my lifespan is proberly only another 20 years though. I hope my imaginary suffering goes away oneday. I could be imagining anything.

Yay It's My Birthday. 11 May 2007.

Just thought i'd make a post on my birthday. Im 29 today. 11 May 2007. I haven't had a very good last 10 years or so due to my cannabis addiction and smoking a lot of cigarettes. It only took me just under 5 years to get real sick after starting tobacco and cannabis at the age of 16. I've lived a horror story really. I'm still addicted. I'm hoping as I get older I will get some control back in my life and be able to be strong enough to eliminate cannabis and tobacco from my life. I feel quite out of control sometimes. At the moment i'm not doing to well. If I was rich I would proberly use a lot more cannabis. Life is complex.

I know that without drugs I would say life is the best thing but with drugs you lose yourself and life becomes much harder. I'm experiencing some bad things about life as most will, but I wasn't prepared for them. Anyway i'm 29 now. From experience I say run from drugs.

Gee I made some really bad mistakes in my life. Others are going to do the same. I think i've discovered something in life for myself and others, something like don't do drugs, I dunno something. I've discovered something but don't know how to pass it on or what it is even. Anyways, yay i'm 29. Hope one day I get better. Life can be really sad yes with no one to talk to because you can't talk yourself and also no one can help. Life is just hard sometimes. There are bad things..... My outlooks somewhat skewed unfortunately.

Ok.... thats enough..... Happy Birthday To Me.... Happy Birthday To Me. So Even Right Now Aren't We Changing Things.
