Saturday morning, and with the excitement of her Granny coming to visit today Tiny Girl decided that 6.15am was a good time to wake up. And when Tiny Girl wakes up, all her friends wakes up - and it was my turn on the early shift today (Mrs Antitrust had the benefit of a long lie after a night out).
An early start on Saturdays (long before I;m ready to get up) is usually the cue for a few smokes outside with a cup of tea. But.....no cigarettes today.
I've been occasionally grumpy today. Not sure if it's withdrawal, but my wife has been very tolerant. The hard part is that when I've been unreasonable she's gone outside for a fag. I've stayed indoors though!
The embarrassing part about Day 3 is that the visiting Granny is my Mum, and she didn't know I'd started smoking again after last year's 11 and a half month abstinence.
So at 44, I haven't yet shared the good news that I'm stopping again for fear of her disapproval that I started again. And I don't want to feel like I've let anyone down if I.........let's not go there, I'm not going to :rolleyes:
Although, she has brought a very nice bottle of whisky so I might spill the beans later on. Best not to have secrets and all that, and Mum's are very supportive - even when you're 44.
