“The therapist said I can get over my fear of buffets. But first, I’ve got to want to help myself”

At a buffet, one helps one’s self. “Just been to a ‘fear of buffets’ help group. I was warned against signing up but I couldn’t help myself” is a joke that was posted on Twitter by GlennyRodge on March 19, 2014.
 
The joke often involves a therapist rather than a help group. “The therapist say I can get over my fear of buffets, but first I’ve got to want to help myself” was posted on Twitter by Steve Thornton on January 8, 2018. “The therapist said I can get over my fear of buffets…. But first, I’ve got to want to help myself” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on December 18, 2020.
 
 
Wikipedia: Buffet
A buffet is a system of serving meals in which food is placed in a public area where the diners serve themselves. A form of service à la française, buffets are offered at various places including hotels, restaurants, and many social events. Buffet restaurants normally offer all-you-can-eat food for a set price, but some measure prices by weight or by number of dishes.
