Leslie, if you’re asking about getting better at becoming aware of your addictive desire, even when it’s more subtle, I think using Times and/or Plans is the most effective way. The whole purpose there is to shine a light on addictive desire so you can see it more clearly.

It can also help if the food isn’t quite so readily available, which of course will depend a lot on the circumstances. You can still get to it and eat it, but opening a cupboard, and then a tin, and maybe then a wrapper, gives you time to become aware of what you’re doing? Might not be appropriate.

If you want to give me a real example, it would be easier for me to respond to that.
