I love everyone's posts who said that they brush their teeth! That has been a trick of mine because for whatever reason after I brush, I won't eat again at night. In answer to the question - yes - I do go to bed to avoid eating! Sometimes it is best to be far away from the temptation.
I ALWAYS have a snack before bed because otherwise severe hunger pangs WILL wake in the middle of the night, so as to your question - no!

No but maybe I should! I saw some things on other posts to drink water or herbal tea and now the one below me that mentioned eating popcorn to help and these are ideas I think I will try. Thanksgiving has thrown off my eating and cravings so I'm trying to get back to where I was.

I am a night owl. I can't go to bed before midnight or I will wake up an hour or two later and then I can't sleep. I always eat late, I don't have a cut off time for eating. I just always make sure I still have calories left for late night (healthy) snacks! I eat popcorn a lot or fruit. If you can't stop yourself from eating late, just stretch out your calories so you can have something later!

I have. Sometimes when I'm just ravenous, I know I've had enough to eat but just want more. Meaning, I'm not hungry. What helps is to just shut it down for the night.

Yes! Sometimes I'm successful, but other times I end up getting up in the middle of the night to eat.

yes I have - sometimes my husband has a snack late and it is hard to smell the food so I brush my teeth and go to bed a bit early if I have to in order to avoid eating too late in the evening - I typically eat around 6:30/7 so if I don't have dessert before 8:30 I won't eat anything else for the rest of the night - also I find water or tea helps me not eat before bed!

I don't go to bed hungry, and I don't eat when I'm not hungry any more, so the issue doesn't arise for me.

No. I just make it a point to not eat late at night. I had done this so long that it is no longer a problem for me.

No. I eat a late dinner (around 8pm) so I'm not hungry before bed.

Yes I have. Brushed my teeth or flossed, started a project or craft, anything to avoid the kitchen!
