Urge Jar & Coffee

I have been doing so great with my urge jar and I absolutely LOVE it!

I am an “Early Entry” student which means I am finishing my BS and getting my MS at the same time (which allows me to have my BS and MS in one additional year as opposed to two), and I am an aide for a blind student during the mornings. My days are typically 12 hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and I’ll usually have a coffee somewhere in there, but I forgot to write it on my protocol page yesterday.

So I’m curious…is deciding to have a cup of coffee before class giving in to an urge? Should I just learn to be tired without the stimulant of caffeine? Or is it okay to plan on that cup of coffee? I’m drinking the coffee now, but just realized I didn’t plan for it and now I’m feeling a bit guilty.
