Seriously though, as someone who routinely changes their lancet every bank holiday as that at least guarantees it get changed a few times a year, I know exactly where you’re coming from! Take a look at Tim & I revealing our bad habits (they’re pretty similar to yours, especially mine!) https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/2011/02/video-blog-bad-habits/ . There’s a few more bad habits here – https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/2009/08/good-diabetic-bad-diabetic/

I grew up in the days of lines and frees, but DAFNE does build on that quite a lot. It’s a bit like being taught how to actually drive the car you’ve been bumping along in for the last few decades, it does make the journey a lot smoother. I’d say it’s worth a week off work.
