Yes. Even though while I somewhat like crossants their appeal for me is far
from irresistitble this reflects more or less my experience.

I also think that a big  psychological help for people having a harsher
battle to fight against withdrawal is that when, in face to unlimited
quantities of excellent meat, fish, salad of which you do not want any more
for the time being, you crave a piece of bread, you can be certain that this
is not any kind of healthy "hunger", it is just addiction kicking in.
