Does it still count if you deliberately let yourself go?

Depends on what I have to control myself over. Shopping? Yeah, I've got self control. Pizza? There's no hope for me...

kind of. I believe there's nothing wrong with desires or giving in to them. If you want to eat a whole pizza or gallon of ice cream then go ahead. Sure it's unhealthy, but what isn't?

I dont think i understood this.

Oh they say that the ego-depletion effect may be false. Now i am confused, you said they were trying to prove the effect, but the article states that it may be false.

If i say no when i dont want too, i can only do so finite times? I dont get it. I mean i get it when there is a fresh pizza and your hungry, you stare at the pizza and say no, but the longer you stare the easier it is to give in. Is that what they mean?
