I love this thing. A 500 GB USB external hard-drive that offers a pin number pad to get access to its contents. It can also encrypt the data on the drive as a secondary security measure. Also love that it’s bus-powered (it’s powered from your computer, so it doesn’t require yet another power cord for your collection.)
One wish for this is that they come out with a USB 3.0 version (for those who don’t know, that’s a faster version than the ubiquitous 2.0 that 99.99% of people have right now. computers with usb 3.0 capability are slowly hitting the market and will be the new standard soon, so all 2.0 external harddrives you have now will be uber slow by comparison.).
Another wish would be that the owner has options to check for what to do after x amount of failed attempts. Currently, it just locks you out after a set number of attempts and makes you wait a while before trying again. As the drive owner, I’d like the option of heavy-hitting penalties for failed attempts. One pin number flash drive I saw, after 10 failed attempts, will lock the drive and erase all data on it. May seem extreme, but at least it would be MY choice.
So, I went off of Chantix too soon….or….I’m weak and was unsuccessful. Either way, my opinion is that Chantix is right for me, so I’ll definitely use it again when I’m ready to try to quit smoking again. I’m very frustrated with myself right now. I was doing so well. fml
Awesome new router! Our old wireless router died and we decided on this one. Install was super quick and easy. We used our same name/password and everything in our house connected automatically. It’s blazing fast, too! Highly recommended.
I think I stopped taking Chantix too soon (I took it for 7 weeks), because I’m going to start smoking again. Next time I try it, I’ll either do the full 12 weeks or the 24-week run. I really did try this time. I hope I try again.

I don’t know how quitting Chantix affects others, but this is what I’ve experienced:
1. A few days after I weaned myself off of Chantix, I began craving cigarettes very strongly. After a couple of weeks some of the cravings are more intense (Chantix contains no nicotine, so I’d already gone through the heavy nicotine withdrawals). I don’t know what this means, but it’s what I’ve been experiencing. I’ve actually been close to smoking again, but that could just be my own failed attempt and not a Chantix withdrawal. I don’t know what’s going on yet.
2. My thoughts come in patches, instead of a normal flow. I have to stop and start my sentences when speaking, due to forgetting what I was saying. Not a normal “forgot where I was” kind of thing, but my mind goes blank in the middle of a sentence. The next word, the next sentence, the continued thought…simply stops. Randomly, suddenly, and frequently. All day and night. If the thought or story was simple and quick, I had no problem. Answering a question or replying to a comment on Facebook, for example, was easy. If someone called and asked a question that required a simple, short answer…then I had no problem. For me and my communicative personality, this has been a scary side-effect. Today, however, I noticed my synapses firing a bit better. I was able to express myself (almost) normally for much of the day. I’m praying that this is a sign that the proverbial fog is lifting.
Close to a month being smoke-free. I wish the random, sudden cravings would stop. I can go hours and hours now (finally!) without wanting a cigarette and then BLAMMO! … from out of nowhere a strong craving slaps me like a pimp.
I am $200.00 richer this month from not buying cigarettes. It’s all gone to lottery and scratch-offs, instead of something responsible 🙂
I want to stop taking the Chantix, but they recommend I continue for a while longer. I wish I knew if cravings would come back (or come back stronger) when I stop taking it. Just in case anyone’s reading this that wants to know, I’ll try my darndest to give updates.
