It must be the only virtue I do have but I can definitely do Temperance, Practising self control, abstention and moderation, and resisting temptation. I think it comes down to being stubborn and refusing to be beaten (wonder who I get that from Dad?). I used to smoke about 40 a day until I got pregnant with Matt when I tried to give up but it was a horrid pregnancy and what could go wrong did go wrong so I only managed to cut down to 10 a day. After having him the amount I smoked crept back up again, never round him but all the same not good. Then I got pregnant with Kyle and I found it impossible to give up as I was that worried it was going to all go wrong so again I cut back. Kyle was born on 28th March 1996 and Pete and I gave up smoking on 1st April 1996 when he was 3 days old. I found it really easy as I was so busy with a 2 1/2 year old and a new born that I could easily find something to take my mind of it and every time I felt the urge I just picked up my gorgeous new baby.
I would like to add that I don't have empty packets of cigarettes lying about the place I had to send the boys out this morning to try and find me one on the street.
Anyone want 2 boys - they are going cheap, in fact I'll pay you to take them and I'll throw in free delivery too. Roll on next Monday when they go back to school and I don't have to listen to their petty bickering.
