You'll get different opinions about how to handle the morning tea. I think I'd make the tea itself an S Event, rather than making all of Wednesday an S day. so treat the time you're with your friend as S, but as soon as the meeting is over you're back to an N day. That's what has worked best for me ...

Two bad habits when eating.

I'm on No S reboot # 567. Actually I'm kidding about 567 which is an exaggeration, but basically I'm back again. I'm starting with the basics and am on my first 21 day challenge. I live alone, and approximately 99% pf my eating is done alone. I've noticed that I'm eating too quickly. I was wondering...

Just that really.
Was doing well, but now I seem to be back in the binge cycle. Actually it's not even bingeing, it's more "inappropriate constant eating" accompanied by seemingly unctrollable urges to eat and eat.

Any suggestions ?

I've wobbled a lot since starting No S. I don't think the wobbling is over yet.
I just keep getting back on the horse. I'd love to be 100% compliant but I don't think that I ever will be. The sanity of eating the No S way is what keeps me coming back. It's simple, not necessarily easy.
