I don't go down that aisle when I'm grocery shopping. I don't keep junk food in the house.
I get a craving in the middle of the day and make a SPECIAL TRIP to the store to buy my junk food. Like the other night when I walked to 7-11 to buy icecream. Didn't need it, didn't have it in the house, just got a craving and went and bought it. I clearly have NO self control. :/
oh, i hear you! one of the good things about my move is that the grocery store isn't very convenient to me anymore. before, i had the 24-hour sobey's right down the street, and i had no problems popping out at 10pm when a craving hit.
luckily here there isn't anywhere near me that is that convenient. my bigger issue now is just impulse buying at the grocery store because of sales. i don't even have a craving, i'm just compelled to buy junk because of the shiny sale sticker. and then once the junk is in the house, it gets consumed fairly quickly. then i have to rationalize with myself - you didn't want this before you came into the store, these things go on sale all the time, the savings on this will go into buying bigger pants, etc. etc. it's just easier (and more effective) not to put myself in a situation where i have to get into that debate.
