Self control is sometimes convincing yourself that what you like is bad for you.
I have 2 boxes if cookies in front of me for the last three months, and I’ve not eaten them because I think they are bad for me.
Worse than cigarettes? You ask.
I say, I don’t smoke, so yes, cookies are not as bad as cigarettes, but worse, because unlike cookies, which I love, cigarettes don’t come into the equation.
