It could be that whatever you're partying with whether herbal or distilled is triggering the cravings. Since you already had this stuff in your home, it could also be more of a habit than a craving.

Depending on the who you believe, it takes 21-42 days to really begin to break a habit. Maybe if you put a treat in the fridge, like a nice beefy stir-fry, or the aforementioned chicken breast, before you go out, you'll start training yourself to eat those kinds of things when you get in after a night out. Tell yourself you're just going to ditch the sugary treats this weekend. Then do the same thing the next weekend - kind of a riff on just staying sober one day at a time, except this is candy one weekend at a time.
Good luck, and don't beat yourself up. Every week and every month, you are developing a new way to feed yourself. Eventually, you'll look back and be amazed at the little things you thought were so important that you don't even think of anymore.
