I Snack When I'm on the SP Site

Saturday, December 03, 2011      10 comments

I noticed that, whenever I'm on this site at night, I tend to snack while reading the information that SP provides. Not a good habit to get into; good thing I'm not attending AA or NA, and I'd be tempted to do those substances while attending t... Read more
