It's Really Very Difficult to 'Steal' Something...
The easiest way around this problem - and it really is a problem for a lot of people - is to fall back on one of the inhibitions that was dinned into your head when you were a child, and use it.
It's wrong to steal. You get into trouble if you become a thief. People don't like or trust thieves.
You know that, and I know it, and everybody else knows it, and in fact very few people can bring themselves to overcome that inhibition and take something that belongs to someone else - particular if that someone else is a child.
So if a tin of biscuits is labelled 'David's Biscuits', or 'Elaine's Cakes', you can't eat them without asking permission can you? Because they aren't yours, are they? And you aren't a thief, are you?
Some inhibitions are very good for you. They can make shedding a few pounds a lot easier. Use them!
