Totally agree with this. The addiction model (or framework) is just a model. If it helps, great. For my part, I prefer to believe that I can do things I once considered impossible, like keeping Nutella in the house and eating only a spoonful or two every couple of weeks, leaving a portion of a delicious entree on my plate, etc.

I find moderation more freeing than abstinence, so I'm inclined toward models that support moderation. But that's just me.
