It's Always Somethin' (Almost Wordless Wednesdays)

Very bad habit.

Very bad and very expensive bad habit.

Very bad and very expensive bad habit gone for 78 days (hash marks never lie)

Still in rehab for this bad habit. Pray for me.

Smuggled this bad habit into rehab with me.

How bad can it be? Small bites with a small spoon every once in a while. Like hourly, maybe. And maybe a small spoonful on top of a Girl Scout Thin Mint a time or two. Is that a crime?

Hey, whatever it takes to get you over that first really bad habit, is fine with me.

Good for you on 78 days - and love the hash marks! I think I heard someone say "chocolate is like air - you have to have it". I'm going with that theory!

You are too funny! I'd go for the chocolate ganache ice cream too. Congratulation on your success! You're amazing!

I am so freakin' proud of you. Curious as to whether the rebhab has started tasting any different now that it's been a few months.

Congrats on 78 days! I'm trying to get a loved one to stop smoking. I know I can't nag them into it but it's driving me crazy :(

Wow....78 days, huh? I'm so impressed! I heard someone say that to quit one habit, you need to sub it with another. I'll take chocolate any day.

I know food really tastes great right now because you have your taste buds back.
The biggest advice I can give you, is to stay away from alcohol for a long time. I would get weak when I had a beer or cocktail.
And find something to do with your hands, let hold a book and read, sew, play piano, type on blog, anything.

A lot of us are proud of you. This is an important test for you to pass.

Way to go! Chocolate is a much better habit. And if you like chocolate ganache ice cream and want to make your own, the recipe in Baking from My Home to Yours is AMAZING!!

78 days!! Congratulations, Mags!! What is that chocolate ganache ice cream? I want some!! I used to smoke, so I think I deserve some, too?

Moogie said...

Mags.... you are so freakin funny.

I'm sorry it's been such a rough ride for you. I was one of the lucky ones and quit cold turkey back in the 70's and for some unknown (I am so grateful) reason, never craved another one.

I'm really proud of you! Hang in there. You're doing great. Who cares if an little chocolate helps? Go for it.

Enjoy your chocolate. It could never be as hard to kick as nicotine. Keeping the prayers going.

Chocolate = health food. 'Nuff said.
