You have a vice???
I have a pack of cigarettes in my cupboard that have been there for 2 years.
I don't smoke but back in the day every now and then... Usually with a cocktail I'd have one..
I haven't smoke one in years (once in Vegas in 2012).., but if I found that if I don't have them, I crave them but if I know I COULD have one, I don't.
Weird I know. Even after a glass of wine... Some days when I'm stressed w kids ill think to myself as I'm doing bath time, etc. "oh can't wait to have a drink and I'm gonna smoke one!!"... Just the thought some days makes me feel better. But once they're asleep, I'm over it.
It's like something "bad" I could do when I've been so good a responsible. Lol. But don't actually want it. Just knowing I could have it is appealing.
Anyone else w that type of thing? Candy? Chocolate? Liquor?
I hate soda. Lol. But that's so great you've cut it down. That's hard.
My best friend drinks diet coke constantly it seems and when she went cold turkey she was miserable with headache and the shakes.
I told her ... Everything in moderation. Set up the diet coke as a treat for you. Something to look forward to at then end if the day or at 3 when u get kids, etc.
Now it's a glass of wine here and there, haven't touched a cigarette since I quit. Too proud of myself after 18 years of smoking to go back.
Now.. hmm.. I stopped drinking all caffeine when I was pregnant so I guess drinking a soda is a huge deal when I do. The fiance knows to bring home a coke if I've had a bad day :)
