    New Year's Resolution...

    Hi,

    My name is Robert and I have been clean for 10 days.

    My New Year Resolution was to not get near the Sales Corner and so far I have succeeded.

    I am very proud of myself but there were a couple of times I almost lapsed. I had my finger on the left mouse button while the cursor was hovering over the link. I had sweat pouring down my brow - but I resisted!

    I don't know how much longer I can hold out. I was visiting up to 10X/day with too many purchases, then cold turkey.

    Any others..., should we meet somewhere??

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    As someone who is on the lookout for my first automatic watch I'm a little afraid of what comes after. Because right now I feel like I'm checking the sales corner + the bay all the time.

    Much better to accept and acknowledge your temptations that to fight them........

    I resolved not to buy another watch until my 40th birthday (October 2014). I have no chance of making it...
