Trying to Work Through Failure

I let it get the better of me.  When I ran out of my one ounce Thursday morning, I was not strong enough in my willpower to withstand and hold firm.  My failure led me to open my next ounce of pipe tobacco early, and now with it being Wednesday, I have consumed almost 1.5 ounces of pipe tobacco this week and it is only Wesnesday morning.  I have utterly failed and an angry at myself.

Some may say I am still better off than when I. Began this effort several weeks ago.  At that time when smoking my pipe freely, I was smoking about 4 ounces a week.  But, to me, not doing what I set out for myself to do is nothing but failure.  

I am at a loss on how to proceed at the moment.

Start over. Don't beat yourself up. Not a failure, just a slip.

The only way to regain your self-respect is by punishing yourself, Professor. No pipe tobacco at all for 3 days.
