Yes!

So leave room for planning for the possibility of an addictive desire to rise up? So make a plan with the addictive desire in mind?

Ideally, I make a plan with the plate in front of me. And ask before I say yes to cake: How will I feel if I eat this? What will the outcome be?

But, when I walk up the stairs already feeling gripped by it and know I’m going to eat one (at least), it might be helpful
to say ‘It’s likely I’ll feel an addictive desire for the treat tonight. I might not be able to work through it tonight but, for now, my plan will be to only eat one’

Is that on track, Gillian? Or off?

Thanks.
