I received my tax refund on Tuesday. Knowing what danger I was in - having $5,000 cash in my account - I went on a spending spree. Paid all my bills online and even put money on bills that weren't due for another month or so in an attempt to empty my bank account. But the inevitable occurred and off I went to the club. I was out for 6 hours. And at the end of this time I'd spent $390. I didn't even see a win! Disgraceful. Now it's 2 days later and I've finally managed to empty my account. How sad it is to know that I can't be trusted to have cold cash in my hand. But there it is. The good thing is that this splurge is still stinging. Yesterday and the day before I didn't leave the house. And today I have to go into town. But I'm not going near the club as I haven't any money left which is a good thing. I'm going to try and continue with my "cold turkey" approach. As long as I have a project for myself around 3-5pm daily everything will be Ok. I've started cooking exotic recipes to fill in this time.
