    the task and has since turned an interesting shade of bronze Figure it will continue until it turns poo brown I pull the exhaust manifold again and once and for all fix the exhaust leak there I took the original cover to a DIY carwash to blast the curd off 2 to start the carwash then neither soap nor degreaser from the nozzle I took it to the shop and plunked into a sink of hot water and Simple Green for some rough scrubbing Then I dropped it in the solvent tank for a better cleaning Slippery when wet Next the whole thing went into the media blaster for the next to penultimate cleaning process Another bath in hot water and Simple Green to rinse away the fine particulates pretty much the same stuff they used in that Cash for Clunkers travesty a few years back so don t want any anywhere near the internals A few days later back at the fort I sprayed the cover down with Brake Kleen and parked it in front of a heater fan for an hour to dry and warm up it was one of the rare rainy days here in Phoenix Then

  • Smoke-Free! | DR1665
    even if that person is us We never have trouble quitting things we don t want to do The hardest part about quitting smoking is quitting something you just want to do First thing in the morning last thing before bed after meals in the car at the bar on break at work when you honestly genuinely do not want to smoke anymore you will quit The first week was pretty tough The second week was pretty tough In fact the entire first month was rough But every time I told a friend or family member how long I d gone without smoking they would cheer me on John took me out for a beer when I reached the three month mark We were going to do it again at six and nine months but it just became so normal to not smoke we kinda forgot 8 vs OVER 9 000 In 2012 I had a grand total of maybe 8 cigarettes Two of them were had over a couple Belgian beers in a 1 000 year old Abbey in England It was the wee hours of the morning and I was talking about rally and race cars with a professional driving instructor and rallyist who was also smoking After several hours of this I decided to splurge The other 6 smokes were randomly had over the course of the year even as recently as last month Like I said the cravings never seem to go away and when you find yourself watching the right movie where everyone is smoking and there just happens to be a half a pack left from a visitor or something you grab a smoke And it s disgusting That s right It s disgusting Go long enough without smoking and I guarantee you the

  • Chantix: Redux | DR1665
    or rain or even dirt on the air when I m outside And OMG food Cooking and eating food is just incredible after smoking I love being able to take a really deep breath and feel the energy that comes from increased oxygen in my blood I m looking forward to stuff like that again Why Haven t I Said Anything About This In part shame Who wants to blog about how they failed at something And what if someone learns I m smoking again decides Chantix isn t worth trying and isn t able to quit There s also a desire to not talk about quitting and just do it while also focusing on other topics here Gearbox Magazine education random automotive journalism commentary come to mind Right now I m very aware of my experience as I quit smoking and the thought that others might be hoping to see me succeed in quitting is a very powerful motivator to see it through this time I m still committed to quitting and very optimistic I ll get it done but if my sharing the on going experience with you please let me know and I ll share some more Career Modification for Gearheads A Question of Motivation Posted in brainstorm commentary random Tagged with Chantix FAIL HowTo WIN seca Thank you for posting this I can 100 relate to you experience while on Chantix I was able to kick the habit for about 5 months with the use of Chantix not including the month I was on it I no longer had cravings for cigarettes and never even thought about buying a pack anymore All of my friends were still smoking at that point and I fell for social smoking I started at one or two cigarettes while drinking with my friends I was soon back at 3 4 s a pack a day where I top out at All that being said I am on my third day of Chantix again Most of my friends have since quit leaving me and one other friend to be the last ones to stop I feel like I already have a head start as I haven t smoked in a car since I quit the first time I remember I used to reach for a cig every time I hopped in to go anywhere It was my biggest trigger I have experienced the lucid dreams for two nights now They aren t any crazier than before I started taking chantix but I awake with the feeling that I really did experience the events and I was thinking back to a memory It takes about 5 mins to shake the feeling off I do hope that it works out for you this time They say the more times you try to quit the more likely it is you will succeed I know and it seems you do too that chantix provides the final push to go from smoking to not smoking It
