Thanks, Gillian. I’ve reread this several times. It’s definitely a new way of thinking that is slowly sinking in. So, instead of waking up in the morning (after a binge period) saying, ‘I’m really going to work on getting back on the program today,’ I can set a shorter time and say to myself, ‘I’ll notice addictive desire and work with it during this Time.’
Is that it?
Esther, your comment about ‘taking a stand’ being a helpful reframing of rigidity is great – thanks!
