Dear Mescalito... Good work !!!. You used delay/escape which is one of the techniques in DEADS ( DELAY, ESCAPE, ACCEPT,DISPUTE AND SUBSTITUTE). I'd recommend that after using this good technique you may want to go up higher to more elegant level methods where you work on your philosophy on the whole. For a more refined and longer lasting solution I'd suggest you pinpoint and keep a journal of what self-talks you use when you are in the 'urge' period. If you want to - you can look into the TUC cycle- where thoughts lead to urge and urge lead to cravings. A Method that stops you at the T level is good for you in the long run and will leave you with the level of willpower that the it found you in the first place. Wishing you well ...cheers.
