Leslie, it looks like you’re already understood that “a clear and firm commitment to get back on the program” is counter-productive as it denies choice and puts you back in the cell.

A lighter touch is better, and I suggest setting a Time between 30 mins and 3 hours, depending on what would represent a bit of a challenge for you. Then figure you’ll have some addictive desire during that period of time and form an intention to notice and work it though when it happens.

When you’ve got a Time in mind and you are not actually eating, then you can say, “so far, so good”.
