Listen, there's no shame in struggling with impulse control. Many of us spend life chasing the ephemeral highs of a quick and easy dopamine hit, only to almost instantly find the feeling of joy replaced with one of regret, sadness, and shame. But then, when temptation rears its ugly head once more, we again find ourselves caving to it, indulging in what we shouldn't really be allowed. And the cycle repeats, ad infinitum. It seems as though there's no solution - until now.
We can't always have a Jiminy Cricket figure on our shoulders to hold us accountable for our decisions. And though you can ask those around you to help hold your urges in check, sometimes that just doesn't work. So how can you make sure you don't fall into the same old cycle?
