Another idea would be to enter the kitchen with the intension of working through your experiences of addictive desire when you happen to notice them. And fully accept that you will most likely do this very badly, with lots of unconscious “mistakes” – and that’s okay and not a reason not to get hopeless about it.

Then later on, you think you managed to work through and not satisfy 5% of the time, that’s something to build on. And the more you allow the desire into your conscious awareness, the more control you’ll gain.

Your comment “my brain is fried from work” stand out too, and I wonder how practical it might be to take a 5 or 10 minute break before the kitchen work? Breathe, go stand outside, stretch, lay down, close your eyes, invite happy memories?
