The little things in life often GET OUR GOAT!
The goat is a metaphor for your state of peacefulness.
When your goat is with you, you are calm and collected.
When your goat is stolen, you become angry and upset.
Those little things used to be an "opportunity to smoke,"
I just went shopping and something marked $4.99 was charged at $6.99. I wouldn't have paid the $2 extra for the item and I didn't see the up charge until I got home and looked at the receipt. I called the store and told them to have the butcher change the price so someone else wasn't overcharged and that I would bring my receipt the next time I came in.
This might have been a trigger to smoke if I had just quit.
We learn to get through by being conscientious, and,
THE ONLY WAY OUT IS THROUGH
