OK, Tiom. I am glad that you are able to attain jhanas.
– Of course, the jhanic experience is the same whether it is an Ariya jhana (with kama raga removed) and for anariya jhana (with kama raga suppressed).

Since you get to jhanas via breath meditation, these are definitely anariya jhana.
– But it is good to be able to get to any jhana.

The only thing I can say is that anariya jhanas do not get one to Nibbana (end of the rebirth process). But it is possible that you may not be interested in attaining Nibbana.
