A Word Of Caution

Hi Everybody,

I am writing this to share what happened in my last failed attempt. I hope it serves as a warning and proves of use to one of you:

I was half way through day 13 and was feeling totally comfortable and confident. Until I put on a jacket I hadn't worn for at least 2 weeks! inside was a full box of cigs and matches. I just calmly took one out and lit it. It was as if my brain tricked me into thinking it was fate and not my fault. Do you know what I mean?

I am alot more wary now and a lot less cock sure of myself. This is no ordinary kind of enemy!

Its like going twelve rounds with Tyson and hoping to win on points in the 12th.

So you are "out of site, out of mind" kinda person... My self, exactly the opposite.

I have always gone into panic mode when I don't have any or enough ciggies. So, now I dare my self by keeping an opened, half full, pack on my book shelf. It is half full for a purpose as well - no-one would notice if I took and smoked one. This reminds me that it is my decision not to.

Besides, if I really wanted a smoke... well I can literally climb mountines or go begging to get one anyways :) So for me its only a good thing to have a "dare pack" staring at me from the shelf, keeping me calm and letting me decide not to touch it.

I'm enjoying my new powers - be aware batman!
