ear stretching possible mishap?

I've been stretching my ears for the past two months or so, and just this morning i upgraded my size to a 00g (10mm). however im a little bit worried. ive heard terrible stories about poor lobe circulation and then the earlobes tissue just thinning and dying. my lobes arent thin, but im afraid of them dying. when i was at 0g (8mm) i noticed that the inside walls of my earholes were a little on the grey side but i just passed that off as dead skin cells, and i attempted to clean it out with alcohol. however the colour did not fade.

i use glass swirls to stretch my ears, as i dont find plastic tapers to be too appealing. and i stretch every two weeks. am i doing something wrong? should i be worried about the grey-ness of my inner walls? how do i fix it? and now that the winter season is coming (i live in the UK so it can get pretty cold) how do i prevent frost bite/poor ear circulation in my ears?

If there's grey at the side this would lead me to think of a lump of scar tissue - a blowout. I can't tell from your description though. Check to see if there is a lump there. If there is you're best going down a size or two to let it reabsorb. Oil massages will help!
You're better waiting longer between stretches, this is the best way to stop your ears falling off! The only times I've heard of it happening is when people stretch ridiculously fast. Using straight tapers can help too, by keeping the hole even all way around. Alcohol is also a bit too harsh for fresh stretches - use warm slightly salty water and soak it for 5 - 10 minutes each day, or alternatively just rinse them in the shower.
For keeping your stretches warm, it's best not to wear metal as it will absorb the cold from the air. Use natural materials or silicone if your ears are healed a bit, and glass if they aren't. Tunnels don't help either as the cold air goes through them, so it's plugs for winter!
