What words can I use for 'restrict yourself to' or 'limit yourself to' or 'go for the worse choice because the better one is unavailable',
as in 'you can't use this simpler method, so you'll have to __ using a more difficult one'.
What came to mind was 'stick to', but I want to make it clear that the other method is more difficult.
Or you can say 'you can't use this simpler method, so you'll have to refrain from using it', but it doesn't mention anything about the limitation to using the specific harder one and only says you can't use the simple one.
edit: "resort to" (suggested by Jason Patterson's comment) is just what I need.
