If you are
Temperate,

or have,

Temperance
,
this means that you have,
Moderation, or Restraint, or
Self-Control of the Appetite, Emotions, and other
Gratifications.

Peter said,
...And beside this, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;
and to knowledge temperance;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly 
kindness charity.  

I Peter I     
5-7      

Temperance is both a Virtue
and a Fruit of the Spirit
This Fruit is born in the Believer
as he walks 'in the Spirit',
away from fleshly sins and overindulgence, and ever more
closely with Christ; being filled
with His abundant life, might,
power
, strength, and
dominion  over sin
and   darkness.
   
The word 'Temperance'
comes from several Greek words which
give the sense that, to attain temperance, one
must give oneself wholly to the proposition of great vigor, dominion, might, power, strength.
For the Christian believer, however,
temperance is attained by abiding in
Christ
, and giving oneself wholly to His
abundant life, dominion, might,
strength, and, power.
