Hi Louise, Jane
Thank you Louise for your insight .. I think that this will REALLY help me as through Gillian’s course I have realised that I am a super complier and I have been really struggling to differentiate between ‘being good’ and really choosing.
Also Jane, I have tried thinking about eating sugar and running and so far it hasn’t worked BUT I realised that when quit drinking and had the urge to drink I repeated my mantra… I get more pleasure from running than drinking. This I now see engaged my PFC and the desire just melted away! I haven’t use a mantra with sugar.. and there are some doughnuts in a fabulous cafe in the Lake District which ARE as good as running! 🙂 but most sugary stuff is OK but the pleasure is really fleeting, whereas it is rare I don’t get back from my run with a huge grin on my face.
So now I have two strategies to try!
Good speaking with you ladies.
