I could even EAT my words LOL

Day 6 and it is my first weekend nicotine free!

To keep my hands busy i have :

Taken my son to Tai Kwon do.

Swept , skimmed the leaves and backwashed the pool.

Finally got around to having a look at the IMAC with the faulty Nvidia 8800 GS

All three tasks a HUGE success, ONLY problem is its not enough to keep me busy , I am eating us out off house and home if i listed what i have eaten since i woke up at 5am you would all be gob smacked!

Not that I didn't eat "well" before umm err I am a 110kg south african man , and believe me we can eat, BUT not like this ! I am like a pregnant women i CANT STOP EATING hmm speaking of eating the kids easter eggs are starting to look DAMN fine!!

LOL i picture the ensuing dialogue

KIDS "Dad, its easter ! didn't you get easter eggs ?"

DAD "WTF NO easter eggs? Jees kids i could have sworn your mom had easter eggs on the grocery list ???, Gail ! why didn't you buy easter eggs"

MOM "I DID buy Eggs! , YOU ATE them ALL with no regard for the rest of the family"

hmmm better leave the Easter eggs where they are and look for easier pickings,

I wonder what Dog biscuits taste like ?

I once found myself absent-mindedly eating a handful of cat biscuits :o

Worryingly, they were rather tasty!

Poor you, Dude. I do understand how it is. I'm only just coming off the back of having to keep constantly occupied at weekends and I'm nearly four months in so it is a difficult time. May I suggest exercise? I found speed-walking/long walks/swimming/resistance exercise really helped (with the additional advantage that you can't eat whilst exercising :)).

Well done for hanging in there and for tackling your first weekend head-on. It does get easier I promise. :)

Hey Sa-Dude - are you on a diet? :)

Mind you, I've had Durban curry in a half loaf, cooked by a SA, and it is delicious!

I was going to suggest having a stock of vegetable crudities to hand, along with some sugar-free gum, but under the circumstances I have a sneaking suspicion that is seriously not going to cut the mustard! :D

Someone needs to warn your local supermarket that you've quit smoking...:)
