Giving Up

If you don’t know by now, I have a ridiculous fan-girl obsession with Kate from Kate Says Stuff. So when she posted this, I immediately wracked my brains to think of how I could fit in. From September 1 until December 31, Kate and her sister Kym will be giving up cigarettes and chocolate respectively. Being the obsessed fan-girl that I am, I am going to take the plunge too. Four months of no chocolate for me. One of the “rules” is that there is no pressure to quit forever, if I start the new year with a block of Cadbury in hand then that is OK.
Four months of no chocolate. Just the thought of it scares me. Though maybe that is why I need to “quit”. If just the thought of not having it is enough to make me anxious then maybe it has more control over me than I thought. I’d always prided myself on not having any addictions once I was no longer an alcoholic, but maybe I couldn’t see what was right under my nose the whole time. There is currently one lone Oreo in the house, so there is not even anything to tempt me. Oh, besides the chocolate mud spread. Damn, I’d forgotten that. Thankfully there is not much left and should easily be finished before September 1 rolls around.

So my darling readers, this is where I ask for help. I may not post very often, I may post some crazy deprived drivel or I may just loop out altogether for a while. But, I may conquer this with relatively little fallout. All I am asking is that you be patient with me, accept my decision and support me in making the changes I know in myself I need to make.

One thought on “Giving Up

  1. Smoker for many, many years. Have to give up to make sure my cat gets all the help she needs to stay alive pain-free as long as she wants. [She was the runt of the litter, but is the only survivor – her brother passed 18 months ago, and their sister went a few years before that]
