Eeek - where did those craves come from?

I had some strong craves and angry feelings today. I even comtemplated buying 10 cigs. Instead, I recited 'Never take another puff' over and over, all the way home from the tube station.

Tomorrow, I have a busy day planned so I am hopeful, it will be crave free.

Thanks, Tinks

I forgot about the terrible threes. I feel better now I am home. Just a bad day at work and DH away so the stress was getting to me.

A wee glass of red wine while I cook dinner should help me unwind.:)

Glad you are feeling better. I had a good old Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr moment while cooking tea then watched the news & decided that the s**t letters I had opened which well & truly wound me up where nothing in the scale of things. Hope you enjoy your chocolate. I am going to tuck into some of my xmas chocs & don't care :eek:
