    I have rather a sweet tooth. If I give in today then I'd give in most days and I'd have diabetes before I know it.
    Are you dangerously close to it or something? I'm 23 and only given up a LOT of junk food very recently. And I'm fine (admittedly very lucky to be so).

    You have a point either way, of course. Each treat is just one step closer to that kind of destination. People just take chances and usually come out unscathed.

    Diabetes runs in my father's family, so I guess I have to keep it in mind. I've always been a decent weight but nonetheless weight obviously isn't the only indicator of bad health, so that shouldn't mislead. It's rather pathetic that I can confess I am addicted to sweet things, an addiction which surely nobody over 12 should have! I walk past a Spar on the way home and it takes all my willpower to make me continue walking past it, all too easily I could go in (and I have) and walk out with 2-4 bags of sweets, and then eat the lot whilst working that night. In the past I've done that several times a week. A sure-fire bad sign is that I find myself protesting 'But will I still be able to get through the evening if I don't?', the standard addict's question. It's only the fact that I've stopped carrying money that's helped me get around it, but regardless it's irritatingly difficult to shake off for good.

    The way I see it, when I do relent, it's a waste of money, it's bad for my health, it's bad for my teeth, and it makes it more likely that I won't be able to resist tomorrow. It's also juvenile, I'm meant to be 22 :no: Shouldn't I be addicted to whisky or something by now? I'm glad to hear that you came through it all unscathed, it's so easy to relapse.

    lol it is very bad, I'd thoroughly recommend you steer clear, but in terms of moving onto alcohol due to your age? lol.
    I do note how it's seemingly ok to be pretty addicted to alcohol because it is such a social norm in this country, but the same people will have an axe to grind with people who like their food. Hmm. Coincidence?

    I know you're pain with sweet foods. I am genuinely addicted.

    Not carrying money is honestly the best way to deal with it.

    Another sweets addict.
    I'm doing a good job staying away from cookies and chocolate ... the trouble is, then I can't stop myself and eat a ton of apples, oranges or cups of tea with honey.
    I must say, sugar addiction does exist, and it won't bloody go away. >_<
