Yes. Absolutely. An all-or-none choice about that item, for the present time, is a good way to go.

I want to add, though, that it’s not necessary to be or become abstinent. I may seem to be contradicting myself again, but there may well be times when you’ll eat these addictive things, and maybe just a small amount, in a way that seems right for you.

The skill of working through addictive desire delivers this flexibility, and I strongly believe this is much more sustainable and reasonable.

Everyone’s circumstances are so different, and for this reason it’s largely a matter of taking the ideas I teach and figuring out how to make use of them in your own situation.
