Seven Days

I can barely keep my eyes open I am so tired. I worked hard today both physically and mentally.

I played a silly game today and don't know if I would have won had the universe not intervened on my behalf. There is this particular drink that I like and it was on promotion recently but in very short supply as of last week. I had this thought today, same as yesterday that if it was still there I would get this as a last time. I thought about this for hours but wasn't sure if I was going to be able to hold out or not. It was a bit like mental Russian roulette.

Sold Out! Thank goodness. I will never know if I would have gone for it or not. What I can say is the store was full of all kinds of other alcohol and I didn't give it a second thought. Also maybe I wasn't really as serious about it as I thought cos I know 2 other grocery stores in town carry it too at a slightly higher price and I didn't drive there to get it. 

The hope is the more days I have the harder it will be to give in. Please let that be the case, please.

I have nothing more in me tonight I just have to go to bed.

Seven days done.

    1. How right your words proved to be. Like your name I thought just one more and a week later had to say again NO MORE.

    1. Was good until about 3pm then I turned into the insatiable monster. Took me a week to get back to it.

  3. Yay, Ginger! Thinking of you...and I think you are correct, the longer you can go and get those days under your belt, you'll be a little less inclined to "poof" it all away with a drink.

  6. Wow you did so well Ginger! Something is definitely changing if you were able
    To decide against going to those other stores. You have a choice and are the only person controlling this. Even though it often seems like something else is controlling our fate. Keep at it girl!
