I'll indulge myself with meat/sugar/beer.
I'll indulge myself in some tennis.
Are the prepositions interchangeable in the sentences above? Would there be other prepositions I could use in the same sentences, without a change in meaning?
For "indulging myself" I would probably use "with":
- I want something sweet.
- Go on then. Indulge yourself.
- OK, but with what?
- With a large bar of chocolate!
However, I would say "I've been over-indulging on beer/chocolate". Note that even though it's "indulge myself" it's just "over-indulge" (without "myself").
I think this is because "to indulge yourself" means "to give yourself a treat" but "to over-indulge" means "to eat/drink too much of something".
