When I want a cookie, or ice cream or come other sweet that will knock me off track, I look at the nutritional info. Usually its something crazy high for such a small amount and I remind myself that for that many calories I could find something way healthier. If I REALLY must have it, then I work around it.

Don't beat yourself up if you can't resist, but the whole point is to think twice before you pop something in your mouth.
