At the temple of Apollo in Delphi is inscribed the ancient greek aphorism "know thyself". For many years I have altered this phrase for personal use to "NO thyself". Learning self control has been an ongoing goal of mine.

So Saturday, my son's 6th birthday became my last official day with Chocolate. I will abstain from chocolate for one year, until his 7th birthday. Today is day 2. Yesterday I withstood hot chocolate, a candy bar, and brownies. Today there is no chocolate in the house except for hot chocolate, and I've got cider to get me through the hot-drink craving.

*wish me a year of luck!*

Good luck! I don't think I could do that.
