I try this and it’s so hard. I always feel like I’m wasting an opportunity. I know it’s necessary and an important step but it’s getting hard for me to not take advantage of my time in any store. Maybe I need to take some time off.

I don't think you need to take time off. I do think you need to change your strategy or mindset. If you use every opportunity to lift you are changing the dynamic of risk. Every lift is a risk of getting caught. I like to keep my number of lifts to a minimum and keep my risk to reward very high.

For example, if I need to buy food I am not going to attempt a walk-out with a basket, half-basket, or with any quantity of items. I would much rather go lift one small and expensive item, flip it, and then go buy all the food I need. This of course does not factor into immediate need, if you have a vehicle, or any number of other personal choices that may be unique to your circumstances.
