Ah! So you just decided enough was enough, then?

Yes. Enough is enough.

"Enough is enough." Just remember that the next time you reach for the jelly beans -- you've done it before, you can do it again

It's as easy as you tell yourself it is, Bartmanhomer. If you say "it's not that easy" then it WON'T be easy. If you say "hey, I've done this before and even though it's tough, I'll do this" then you can make it happen. You have to be willing to be a little uncomfortable -- there are no magic pills here. It's YOUR hand that puts the sugar in YOUR mouth -- no one else.

Do you want to know how long it took me to quit the ice cream and cookies addiction, 2 to 3 months! It took me 2 to 3 months to get off that stuff! It`s not going to last for one day you know.

Then don't force yourself to do it in one day! Give yourself the time you need -- 2 to 3 months is reasonable -- just starting cutting back today. I believe you can do it, you've already done it before. But YOU have to believe it, Bartmanhomer. Remember, give yourself some slack.

All right I`ll do it. But what if I`ll relapse?

Dust yourself off and try again "enough is enough."
