Yes, Sarah, you’ve got that right. I’d express it in a slightly different way, though.

The way I understand it is that when the limbic system becomes active with addictive desire, the aim (solution) is to get the frontal cortex (DLPFC) active.

Owning free choice is a huge part of that, so the ‘got to’s’ and ‘have to’s’ block your ability to activate that frontal part, just behind the forehead.
