yes, I've started taking sips in the mornings and evenings. It's really helped. I've also been thinking of cutting my prosphora into pieces and eating one every morning.
As to the OP, I find that taking a swig of Holy Water does well to quell the temptations.
My prosphora molded after four days when I used to do that.... does anyone know how to make it keep?
Bake it after you take it home. Cut it into small cubes and then toast them in an oven or toaster oven until they're hard - they should keep for a long time then. This is what a few of the Athonite monasteries do, and they give the dried Antidoron to people to have with Holy Water in the morning; I've got a 2+ year-old bag from one of the monasteries, and it's all still good.
