The suspect: An Oreo cookie aka. Milk siren
The mission: Avoid the Oreo at all costs.Deflect its hypnotizing song.
Leave the house uncompromised.
suspected working its magic all morning since 3 a.m. the unearthly pull towards the cupboard was almost overwhelming. audio hallucinations started, attempting to talk me into a compromise.I deflected with a distraction technique, take out the trash.
I was able to avoid the cookie escape without it compromising my day.
:) all joking aside I really feel that it's inappropriate to keep trigger foods inside the house. I have a terrible problem with sugar. unfortunately I'm living with my parents as I finish my degree and I can't really dictate what they buy and keep in the cupboards. for me it's like walking a minefield every morning. you wouldn't keep a complete open bar in the presence of an ex alcoholic, or pain medication Within Reach or someone who had abused vicodin. so how come its rational to keep the trigger foods like sweets and candies within reach of a food addict?
I know it's about willpower. but you don't see anybody walking into an AA meeting with a bottle of hooch.
I wonder if I could just beg my parents not to stalk house with junk, or hide it so that I don't see it and not tell me about it... ever.
I'll try to see if I can strike up a compromise I'll post you guys on the mission impossible later.
