Postponement Specificity Differentially Affects Desire and Consumption
For self-control facilitation, specific plans are thought to be superior to their unspecific counterparts.

Four experiments demonstrate that unspecific postponement but not specific postponement reduces consumption of a postponed temptation through a weakening of desire.
