I gave up chocolate after an especially out-of-control holiday truffle fundraiser season when I worked at MANNA in 1994. It was clear to me then that I did not have the ability to regulate my chocolate intake and that I needed to just declare it to be off-limits. At the time, white chocolate was not readily available in the world, and I seemed to be able to keep a grip on myself in its presence, so I decided that white chocolate didn't "count."
Now that it is a suspect food, I'm feeling a bit deprived. I need to figure out a readily available gluten-free treat. Just knowing that I CAN get one, even if my weight-manager brain waves me off of it, would make me feel a lot better.
