“My willpower is like a toddler: throws tantrums, wants instant gratification, and naps all the time. Good luck conquering cravings with that.” - Uknown


Cravings can be formidable adversaries, capable of derailing even the most determined pursuit of healthy habits. However, just as we’ve all learned and remembered to avoid touching hot stoves or irons, the potential to overcome cravings for good resides within each of us.

  • Think back to when you were a child and learned the valuable lesson of not touching a hot stove. Initially, you might have been enticed by curiosity or tempted by the allure of the flame. But after experiencing the discomfort of a burn, your brain made an indelible connection between pain and the act of touching a hot stove. This association remains ingrained in your memory, acting as a protective mechanism to prevent future harm.

  • Similarly, conquering cravings involves creating new associations within our minds. By recognizing the negative consequences of indulging in unhealthy cravings and linking them to feelings of regret, sluggishness, or guilt, we can establish a powerful deterrent. Through repetition, reinforcement, or intense experience these associations can become deeply ingrained, empowering us to resist cravings for good.


“I resist cravings the same way I resist doing chores: until the very last minute, when the pressure becomes unbearable.” - Uknown

Conquering cravings for good can have numerous benefits for our overall well-being. By employing proven techniques and strategies, we can experience the following advantages:

  1. Improved physical health: By conquering cravings, we can make healthier food choices, which can lead to improved physical health. Resisting the urge to indulge in unhealthy cravings reduces the consumption of processed foods, added sugars, and unhealthy fats, thus promoting weight management, reducing the risk of chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, and enhancing overall physical well-being.

  2. Increased mental clarity: Giving in to cravings often leads to short-term satisfaction but can leave us feeling mentally foggy and lethargic. By conquering cravings, we can experience increased mental clarity and focus. Making conscious choices aligned with our long-term goals promotes a clearer mind, improved cognitive function, and better overall mental well-being.

  3. Enhanced emotional balance: Cravings are often triggered by emotional factors such as stress, boredom, or sadness. By conquering cravings, we develop healthier coping mechanisms for dealing with emotions. We learn to address underlying emotional needs through alternative means, such as engaging in physical activity, practicing mindfulness, or seeking support from loved ones. This promotes emotional balance, resilience, and a greater sense of control over our emotions.

  4. Increased self-confidence: Successfully conquering cravings can boost our self-confidence and self-esteem. It reinforces our belief in our ability to make positive choices, stick to our goals, and overcome challenges. Each time we resist a craving, we build self-trust and develop a stronger sense of personal empowerment, which can extend to other areas of our lives.

  5. Long-term sustainable habits: Conquering cravings involves implementing proven techniques and strategies that promote sustainable habits. By developing mindful eating practices, utilizing NLP techniques, and creating a supportive environment, we establish a solid foundation for long-term success. These sustainable habits not only help us conquer cravings but also contribute to overall health and well-being in the long run.

  6. Greater sense of control: Cravings can often make us feel powerless and controlled by our desires. By conquering cravings, we regain control over our choices and actions. We become the drivers of our health and well-being, making conscious decisions that align with our values and goals. This sense of control spills over into other aspects of life, empowering us to take charge and make positive changes in various areas.

Client: “I want to end my cravings for chocolate once and for all, but after some time it always comes back.”

Vlad: “Have you chocolate with you? And what strategy have you used to distance yourself from the chocolate? What food you don’t like but occasionally eat it.”

Client: “Just a small Mars bar. I am reading articles about addiction to chocolate, and speaking with my friends and spouse. Then I go inside and tell myself I need to stop it and if I don’t see chocolate I am good, but when I go to a meal, party or just supermarket I feel crawling, start to taste it in my mouth and then I feel a compulsion, I buy it and eat it. And I am telling myself I shouldn’t. I’ve got already 2 kids and I want to give them an example as well. I don’t like pickle garlic scapes, I might eat them in the house of my in-laws.”

Vlad: “Thanks for the detailed information. I will facilitate your transformation from a compulsion to a negative association. What it means is, that you might still be able to see chocolate in different forms and products without ever again feeling the urge. It’ll be like pickle garlic scapes. You can eat them but don’t feel attraction. It’s that amenable to you?”

Client: “Yes. Yes and yes”

Scale of attractiveness

Vlad: “Please. Take your chocolate bar out of your purse and unwrap it. I will place this scale from minus 10 to + 10 with a peg into your hand and ask you what is your desire to have on the scale just now. Once you have responded please place the peg above the number.”

Client: “Before I have had some chocolate. I was keeping this for the evening. So my attraction is about 4.”

Vlad: “What would raise the attraction to 8?”

Client: “I am gloating now. Candles, good company, and wine.”

Vlad: “What would raise the attraction to 10?”

Client: “It’s the cherry bonbons while kissing.”

Vlad: “What would raise it to 12?”

Client: “I am content, happy, and enjoying my relationship by having chocolate cake with cherries on top.”

Vlad: “Now we will slide back as you will observe that you are in control. Go back to 10, after 8, 6, 4. What will make the attraction for chocolate number 2?”

Client: “It’s dark chocolate.”

Vlad: “What will make it 0?”

Client: “White chocolate.”

Vlad: “Now we start to move in minus numbers. Make it number -2.”

Client: “It’s after the date of use, several years old. Discolored.”

Vlad: “Make it number -4.”

Client: “Someone has sprayed the chocolate with a bear or some perfume”

Vlad: “Good. Now I want you to add some ingredient to chocolate that will bring it down to -7.”

Client: “I see the worms coming out of the chocolate and it’s smelling bad.”

Vlad: “Now I want you to turn the chocolate down to minus 10.”

Client: “The chocolate has inside of it hair and it has inside of it worms and it smells bad.”

Vlad: “Now I want you to bring that chocolate bar to your nose, imagining that it’s full of worms, full of hair and it smells very very bad. Imagine taking a bite.”


Client: “I can’t!!!”

Vlad: “The experience will last. And you can apply it to other different assortment of products.

  • Develop a comprehensive plan: outlining the steps you need to take to achieve your desired change. Break down the plan into smaller, actionable tasks with deadlines. This will provide structure and clarity as you move forward.
  • Publicly announce your decision: Consider publicly announcing your decision to make a change. Share your intentions with friends, family, or a supportive community. By doing so, you create a sense of accountability and gather support from those around you.
  • Share everyday outcomes: Keep a record of your progress and share your everyday outcomes with your chosen community. This could be through social media, a blog, or a personal journal. Documenting your journey and sharing your experiences will not only provide a sense of accountability but also inspire others who may be facing similar challenges.

  • Identify your specific goals: Clearly define the areas of your life or aspects you want to change. Whether it’s improving your productivity, enhancing relationships, or developing new skills, having a clear understanding of your goals will help you narrow down the tools that align with your objectives.

  • Conduct comprehensive research: Begin by researching the various tools and methodologies available for personal change. Look for reputable sources such as books, articles, online resources, and scientific studies. Explore different frameworks, techniques, and practices that have proven to be effective in facilitating personal growth and transformation.

  • Consider your preferences and learning style: Take into account your preferred learning style and personal preferences when selecting tools. Some people thrive with structured programs or courses, while others prefer more flexible and self-directed approaches. Consider whether you prefer written materials, audio resources, interactive workshops, or one-on-one guidance.

  • Evaluate credibility and evidence-based approaches: Assess the credibility and evidence base of the tools you come across. Look for tools that are backed by research, supported by experts in the field, or have demonstrated success stories from individuals who have used them. Consider seeking recommendations from trusted sources or professionals in relevant fields.

  • Read reviews and testimonials: Explore reviews and testimonials from individuals who have used the tools you are considering. Pay attention to both positive and negative feedback to gain a balanced perspective. This can provide valuable insights into the effectiveness, usability, and potential limitations of the tools.

Engage in short-term trials or pilot projects to assess the compatibility and effectiveness of the tools for your personal change journey.

  • Iterate and adjust: As you engage with the selected tools, be open to iterating and adjusting your approach. Personal change is a dynamic process, and what works for one person may not work the same way for another. Be willing to adapt, modify, or combine different tools to find the best approach that suits your unique needs and circumstances.

  • Measure and track progress: Establish mechanisms to measure and track your progress as you utilize the chosen tools. This may involve setting milestones, keeping a journal, or using specific metrics to monitor your growth and change. Regularly evaluate whether the tools are aligning with your goals and delivering the desired outcomes.

  • Reflect and refine: Continuously reflect on your experience with the tools and refine your approach as needed. Reflect on what is working well, what challenges you are facing, and how you can optimize your use of the tools. Stay open to embracing new tools or modifying your existing toolkit based on your evolving needs and insights.

  1. Sharing what you have learned with the community can be incredibly beneficial, both for yourself and for others. Here are some reasons why sharing your knowledge and experiences can have a positive impact:
  • Personal growth and reflection: Sharing what you have learned deepens your understanding and helps you identify gaps in your knowledge.
  • Validation and support: Your words can provide validation and support to others who may be going through similar challenges.
  • Building community and connections: Sharing knowledge fosters a sense of community and creates opportunities for collaboration.
  • Inspiration and motivation: Your experiences and insights can inspire others to take action and pursue their goals.
  • Creating a ripple effect: Sharing knowledge can create a ripple effect of positive change in the community.
  • Receiving feedback and alternative perspectives: Sharing invites feedback, broadening your understanding and promoting growth.
  • Contributing to the common good: Sharing your knowledge empowers others and contributes to a culture of learning and improvement.

When sharing, consider using platforms like social media, blogs, or public speaking engagements. Tailor your approach to reach the specific audience you intend to connect with and consider their needs and preferences.

Remember, the act of sharing is a two-way street. Embrace the power of community and the collective wisdom that emerges when individuals come together to share and support one another on their paths of personal growth and transformation.


Meditation can be a powerful tool to help conquer cravings and develop greater control over them. Here is a proven technique that incorporates elements of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) called the Swish Pattern. Follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Set your intention: Begin by setting a clear and strong intention to conquer your cravings and develop a healthier relationship with the object of your craving.

  • Step 2: Find a quiet and comfortable space: Find a quiet place where you can sit comfortably without distractions. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to relax your body and mind.

  • Step 3: Visualize the craving: Bring to mind a vivid image or representation of the object of your craving. See your hands as through your eyes reaching for the object of your desire. See it clearly and notice any associated sounds, smells, or sensations.

  • Step 4: Create a replacement image, seeing yourself already living as the person who knows what to choose, buy, and eat and drawings are things of the past: Now, create a replacement image that represents a healthier alternative or a positive outcome that you desire. This image should be compelling and emotionally charged. Make it juicy, sparkling, life-size.

  • Step 5: Swish the images: Quickly and vividly switch your visualization to the desired state (free from the issue). Repeat this swishing motion back and forth 3-5 times. After each time clear your mind by saying the name of this article. Each time you switch, emphasize the contrast between the two states.

  • Step 6: Test the swish: To test the effectiveness of the swish pattern, intentionally bring up the image of the object you were craving. Notice the change.

  • Step 7. Come back with the sensation of well-being and knowing that it had passed.

Note: The Swish Pattern is a well-known NLP technique, but individual results may vary. If you’re struggling with severe cravings or addiction, it’s important to seek professional support and guidance.
