Not 3D printing, but very important to me

Recommended Posts

I managed to go to Europe about a month ago. While there, I got sick....really sick. Sinus infection that had moved into my lungs as well. Bad enough so that I am about to start my second round of antibiotics to fully wipe this out. That is what I get for treating the symptoms instead of the infection for the last year. Yes, I thought things were fine with just my antihistamines. Well...nope.....

 

The upside? It hit me so hard and fast that I barely smoked two cigarettes when I got there it hurt so badly, and today makes 1 month of no smoking. And, just to let you know how bad I was, I have had no desire to smoke since.

 

So, after being a complete addict on smoking.....no shame in that since it is truly addictive, I have been smoke free for one month and ready to continue being smoke free. Even when the habit part starts in (not the addiction, but the actual habitual rituals of smoking...after eating, etc.) it lasts for about 2 seconds and is gone quite easily.

 

I have never been so happy to have gotten that sick in my live. LOL

 

Probably good for the printers too, eh? ;)

Hi kman, what a great news you have stopped smoking. Sorry it took feeling so miserable to put down the cigarettes, but if that will be the long lasting takeaway you may indeed come out better :) How will it also be better for your printers? So they are still white after using them for some time, instead of yellow-ish? ;)

I just think that any reduction in particulate pollution is better for everything and everybody as well in my apartment now. Still smoke free. Still fighting the infection though....that is what I get for treating the symptoms and not the illness. Just turned into a super nasty sinus infection. But....like you said, long term benefits in not smoking!

Exactly the same thing happend to my brother who was a chain smoker. Now nothing. All thanks to geting seriously ill!

It works!! I seriously recommend it to anybody who is considering smoking. Even though it sucks being that ill, it was actually better than all the attempts I made to quit prior to this.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
