Needless to say I have made it to Day 5, and I have taken on some large challenges through out the day that have tested me...
So I sat down at my computer this morning and a work colleague mentions that it's my wifes birthday on Sunday. Not wanting to miss it this year I decided to blaze into town and get sorted out.
Now what I am about to say is a bit mean but meant in the best possible way "Even the pensioners in Marks & Spencers plodding about at 1 kph didn't push me back to the smokes".
So feeling pretty good about my self I wondered back to my car and noticed two lovely ladies having a smoke outside... So I proceeded to walk past them and got a smell of the ciggy smoke... AND GOD DID IT SMELL GOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!
I am sorry everyone but I didn't find it at all horrible... Now for anyone who has read my posts they'll probably know that I actually enjoyed smoking, and my biggest problem is that I am not 100% committed to giving up. I don't really socialize at pubs or clubs and I use to smoke all on my own at the back of my garden.
Anyhow, the up shot of this is that I just thought to my self "Oh well" and plodded on not really that bothered about the experience.
So then my business partner turns up with some computer memory, now being absolute smarty pants, and I quote the statement we both made "What could possibly go wrong, we're only installing extra memory"... Every thing did do wrong... 6 hours later the memory is back in its packaging my video cards don't work together any more, two parts of the PC's case broke off (And not through me standing on it either!!), and I cannot use the PC for work, so I am going to have to crank up the old laptop for a few days.
Now please note, that this would normally of triggered a smoking relapse, and in the past (I may have mentioned on this forum before) I have been known to jump up and down repeatably on my computers before literally throwing them or kicking them out of the office (I believe I stabbed one straight through the motherboard once :)).
And after that experience I proceeded in to my house and changed three light bulbs and the fridge water filter.
All this without wanting a ciggy or getting angry ... Now that is a miracle...
