Never Get Tempted

Date Posted: Feb. 16, 2021

It was mentioned in one of my journals that I stopped drinking coffee for good after enslavement of many years.  It's been six months since my last cup. I swore by it not to get tempted.

I'm winning...

So many self-taught advice saying, "remove the temptation" if you want to avoid the binge.  If you tend to check your mobile phone even before rising to pee in the morning, then, don't sleep with the phone!  The list could go on...

But it takes will power to really win with dependency.  I did not follow the above idea of removing the temptation.  Coffee is still around my premises and I'm with coffee drinkers.  I smell the aroma.  The temptation is ready to kill me anytime.  My motivation to avoid going back to the unwanted habit is simply this:  I imagine like being wrapped with a thick dark net -- I was a slave before, and now I am free.  That's it!  Imagine how petty it was -- it's just a teaspoon yet it ruled my days.  I should be the boss of the granules. 

And so I am...  and so you!

Coffee is not the vile but the uncontrollable dependency to it, like the other culprits in the hiding:  never get tempted to succumb even if it's within your reach.  Never light another stick.  Never smell the drink.  Never reach out for another pack.  Never have any careless agenda to cheat.  Never open the social media on business hours.  Never watch a movie when there is a strict deadline.  Never let the resistance rule!

The motivation is beyond denial or omission of source.  Never get tempted and mean it!
