I was tempted to do it, but I avoided the temptation. No, the temptation wasn't eating a high-calorie dessert. It wasn't spending money on something I didn't need. It wasn't skipping the homework for the class I am taking. All of those things are tempting, and sometimes I do give in, but this was something different.
It was the temptation to use an abbreviation while texting.
Now before you stop reading because you think that's not a temptation at all, or if so, it's just a trivial one, think about it from an English teacher's perspective.
