Thanks Gillian, that’s helpful. I think changing my ‘all or nothing’ attitude is going to be key.
Interesting point about smoking. I gave up smoking about 10 years ago, and found it incredibly difficult to stop at the time. But now I never think about smoking, and certainly wouldn’t consider a cigarette as a treat these days. So I don’t ever smoke now but don’t feel prohibited about that at all. Perhaps I could feel that way about junk food one day!
