    My problem is that it is a quick little game and I always say "just one more" and an hour or two has slipped away before I realize!

    Exactly why I didn't take the bait past the first try.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    That's why they were sensibly allocating people one wordle a day, but no, people got greedy, more wordles and wordle-like things, more more more ... This is why we can't have nice things.

    Exactly. That's why I'm exerting self-control and waiting for daily Wordle. For the moment anyway.

    I am trying to refrain myself and stick to the daily game.

    My daughter turned me onto another Wordle variant called Quordle, where you get 9 attempts to solve 4 different words. After just 3 daily puzzles, it has become my favorite.

    One wordle a day is perfect. I only play on week days. I work for a couple hours and then take a break to make coffee in my french press. While it's steeping I play the day's wordle and then go get a cup of coffee and get back to work. Since it's on my work computer I can't share it to facebook or anywhere so it's truly just a thing for me. I've taken all six tries a few times but I've never not solved it. (knock on wood...)

    I've continued playing daily for the past 148 days, it's become a part of my daily morning routine. Disappointed this morning that for the first time in 82 days I failed to win, I guess I'll have to begin a new streak tomorrow.
