Well it has been over a month and i have not given in. I have to say a thought popped into my head a few days ago as i drove past my local but i kept telling myself no. Was proud of how long i had lasted and i didnt want to start all over again! That demon saying ‘come on its been a month, whats $100 - you coukd win a few hundred!’ I just had to tell that voice to fu+k off!

I hope to continue! I also need to quit smoking but am worried i cant do both at the same time..... will give it a few more weeks before i try i think.

I honestly thought i woukd have slipped by now so very happy with myself.
