I have issues following other people's recipes. Like huge run-away-and-jump-into-bed issues, and toss-a-frozen-pizza into-the-microwave -while-weeping kinds of issues. But, like all problems in life, a solution can be found, so here's my recipe to non-overwhelming cooking:
So you’ve tried to quit smoking, or video games, or eating chocolate for the millionth time. Sometimes it works, and you can go without for days, maybe weeks, heck you can even make a month when the stars align. But there are some habits (or perhaps all) that just keep coming back. It feels like you’re trying to hold back a wall of goats; perhaps you hold them at bay for a little while but they’ll eventually eat through the barrier when you’re not paying attention.
Dealing with addictions doesn’t have to be so hard, but for people with ADHD, completely stopping an addiction can be the hardest thing they ever do (or don’t do).
