Let them moan

Starting a new habit is hard.

The old habits don’t like it.

They moan and squirm and itch under the skin telling us to pick up the phone, the controller, the lighter, the bottle, the pipe, or the spoon; the implement of our addiction.

They whisper how hard it will be, how much we’ll ache and sweat, and how little it will do to make us happy.

But it’s never as bad as they say it will be, and most of the time, it’s better.

Let them moan.
