    in an article that i read it said it takes 28 days to break a habit, if in that 28 days, you have whatever habit it is that your trying to break free from, you have to re-start the 28 days again. so i thought i would start a thread any one is welcome to join in :)
    DAY 1
    so i will start i am going to have my milky coffees without sweeteners (i did take 3 out ready to put in my coffee this morning )
    :) then remembered i was trying to give them up :eek: and i am not going to have any chocolate will have nuts, seeds and dried fruit instead and syn them, i weighed out 25g which is 6.5 syns could not believe what a small amount it was 5 almonds,2 cashews.1 walnut half,4 sultanas, 2 hazlenuts 1 small dried apricot and few seeds :eek::eek:

    Hi there that's such a good idea and so true...I used to come home from work and raid the fridge and cupboards etc....for a few weeks I made myself go to the gym or out of the house so I wouldn't do it and it worked yay!! until I hurt my shoulder booo... so i'm going to try and break some habit of my own too and tomo should be a good day to start....i'm going to think about what habits are best for me to break!! well done on yours so far hon!!! you're doing great!! mwahXx

    Move your sweetners out of the usual place..It helps to break connection..I gave up sweetners in tea.It took about about a week went off tea for about 2 weeks now prefer it without sweetner or sugar

    day 12 weds 2nd march

    well last night i made my milky coffee and was feeling sorry for myself :sigh: so thought i would put sweeteners in my coffee - result coffee was too sweet and couldn't drink it so am back to no sweeteners it shows that if u abstain u do get used to it, still haven't had any choccie which i am amazed at :D especially with all the easter eggs calling me as i walk past them in the shops i am wondering how much longer i will last but can honestly say i haven't missed it :)

    This is a great idea! Well done for keeping it up. I think I'll try it myself. My one bad habit is eating when not hungry so that'll be a good one.
    All the best. Keep it up

    Wow, you're doing well :) its amazing it only takes a few short weeks to get used to not having something. I used to have toast & jam at suppertime everyday, even when I wasn't peckish, but gave up bread in February and I'm just not bothered by it now!

    Keep it up :D
