Pig limiting...

When using a choke to limit current, does more L = more or less current?
IIRC more L would increase the limiting action producing less current,
but I would like to make sure I'm right. About half of the parts I need
for a power controler are on the way, so it would be nice to know before
I power the thing up. I'm thinking I want to use a choke and a small
resistance like a heating element to control this. With the choke being
the main limiter.
