Just remember "milk milk milk..." And with this tiny pin, you won't forget!

There's an exercise in ACT: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, that helps to disarm and distance yourself from distressing thoughts:

First, paint a detailed picture of milk in your mind and sit with it for a minute. After that, repeat the word "milk" out loud over and over again for 30 seconds. And by the time you're done, the word "milk" loses its meaning.

This is to show you that words are inherently meaningless, and that meaning is learned. You're reading this text and understand the meaning, but a baby would just see a bunch of random shapes. Remembering this helps to ease psychological distress and help you more quickly move on from the thoughts.
