  • I would say if you know that something is bound to tempt you simply stay away from it. ex. If one is trying to give up alcohol I would goo places where it is around or being used until I got to a point in which the temptation was no longer there

  • ohhhh...but what about shopping and you see things on clearance and the store is practically giving the item away, how do you say NO to that?
