Hey Bang, well done! If temptation should rear its ugly head, here's a tip that helped my better half give up smoking.

Just wait fifteen minutes for it to pass.

Apparently that's the time it takes for a craving to come and go (& it's a LOT easier to do than a whole lifetime!)

"Never try to eat the whole elephant at one sitting"!

Good luck - you can do it!

No pic right now. My lights are dead. That is what I am going to get with my "booze" money.

WOW! Look at all the possibilities for things that you can use that $$ for! Your aquarium ... or a "Gourmet" meal instead of Mac-n-Cheese!!!!

That's great news! I actually thought you where kidding us about the vodka every time you mentioned it. Hmm... I highly recomend very dry, flavored sparkling water. As a fellow drinker of spirits the slight bitter and lot's of taste this has is pretty much interchangeble with my liccour cravings.
