Hell of a week

Posted in Hints and tips 20 Apr 2012

108 days smoke free so far. Well this week has been tough I am treading water at work waiting on the next job as such I have been sitting at someone else's desk just keeping busy. On Tuesday I finally opened the top drawer of the desk and bam. Sitting there is a cigarette lighter and half a pack of Winnie's my old brand of smokes. I picked up the pack opened it and smelt inside of it. OMG did they smell so good !!!!!! I put them straight back in the drawer and closed it. I have spent the rest of the week with this temptation right next to me. I'm proud to say I stayed strong. As good as those damn things smelt I know I am one puff away from commencing my addiction exactly where I left it 100 plus days ago. Enjoy the weekend everyone.

    Awesome willpower! You are the heavy weight champion of willpower dude! I'm on day 96 today and while working on building a chicken coup, stopped for about 20 seconds ... 20 long seconds and thought about going to the shop for a pack of smokes. Had there been a stray pack in the drawer, who knows. Well done to you Freakboy!!

    Wow Freakboy,
    Honestly that is some serious willpower you got going on. I really don't think I could have ignored that whole senario,If I picked up that packet I think i would have taken one and smoke it.
    Congrats to you, your willpower and your 100+ days xoxo
