Another of those "why do I bother" days. Feeling low & listless. Fortunately I exercise my lax self discipline on chocolate & chips instead of scotch & cigarettes, but I had a looooong conversation with myself to get over the urge to buy a packet of cigs. I KNOW I'll get no satisfaction or relief if I succumb. I KNOW relapsing will likely cost me thousands of dollars each year. I KNOW from past experience that they will taste awful, & that taste will linger for hours & will probably make me feel ill. I KNOW a relapse will make me feel like an absolute LOSER......& despite all that, I still entertain the temptation. The worst is over now. I've overindulged on sweets& don't feel so good but I live to fight another day
