Hi Gillian and all,
You won’t believe it, but I did have a cake today (just as an experiment of course ): And I have to say, this idea of being ahead of addictive desire makes me wonderfully calm and free (so far).
As for sweet coffee, it’s not a real abstinence, I just hate the taste.
Thanks for the tip as always! It’s amasing how blind I can be about myself sometimes.
