Long ago, when I read about this technique in a Psych class, I laughed and thought it was ridiculous. Now, decades later, I tried it and have eliminated two behaviors with it. One was sugar awhile ago. When I reached the point where I didn't want it anymore, I forced myself to have it. It was yucky and that thought remains. The other habit is one which is non-food and one that wasn't problematic, just annoying to me. I'd rather leave it at that.
I'm now working on coffee - again. I'm at the point where I don't want it, but forcing the one small mug a day. Again, it's absolutely yucky and I'm ready to stop. Hopefully, for good. Yes, I've been through this sooooo many times, but am ready to make it stick.
Today is my son's birthday. Had three, lost two, and this is my remaining wonderful son. Wishing all a wonderful day.
