self test A on the above           self test B on the above   


Beyond the taking of full personal responsibility for all of my actions, I heed my conscience, and, to some extent, incorporate self-denial and adherence to behavioral guidelines into my life. (Note: the origin of such guidelines, whether from work schedule, legal, marriage vow, military, financial, health, family, environmental, ethical, or religious considerations, can vary. And commitments differ. Monks and nuns commit to a life of asceticism, others to voluntary simplicity. For dieters, those battling addiction, athletes, those working a less than enjoyable job, etc, restraint may only last until a goal is attained.)


I have failed to restrain myself. Increasingly I feel trapped by my own behavior, and that —in my despairing moments—I have no choice to behave otherwise.  I am, to some extent, imprisoned by my brain biochemistry.  Simply put:
I can’t stop doing certain things, even though I need to, or must, to survive.
