I've had that same problem. Easiest thing to do is not have any junk food in the house. If I don't have it, I can't eat it. But I can't say I've completely conquered this habit. Try drinking hot tea (no caffeine) or some water.
Don't stop if you can't. Switch to healthy stuff. Munch on carrot sticks, cucumbers, an apple, or a banana.

It's a huge struggle. My husband and I always share an evening snack and decaf coffee about 9PM and, while I know it doesn't matter what time you eat, we always have a sweet snack and I know that's not what should be going in right before we go to bed at 10:30. I haven't been able to break the habit so far....

Make sure you have two snacks at night before you go to bed, that include protein and carbs, so you can sleep through 2 AM until you need to get up. Maybe some f/f milk and cereal, or peanut butter on toast. Cheese on toast.
