You'd said "It is said oral gratification is one of the last desires to be over come also".... I'd be very interested as to where "it is said" as this is another area that I am trying to master. Most people approach this from a more dysfunctional standpoint (i.e. emotional eating - something that is generally not the case with me) but I would be interested to hear other's perspectives as to the spiritual developmental aspects of mastering oral gratification, etc. Do you have an author or source that you recommend? Thanks..
