   opt = raw_input("Enter Your Opt: ")
   opt = []

If you want to keep all history in memory:

history = []
while program_runs:
  opt = raw_input("Enter Your Opt: ")
log = file("log","w")
for opt in history:
  print >>log, opt

or just save along the execution:

log = file("log","w")
  while program_runs:
    opt = raw_input("Enter Your Opt: ")
    print >>log, opt

Decorate prints with time on your taste.
