It’s a Sweet and dangerous thing

I am a sugar addict. No question about it! However I am trying VERY hard to become a recovering sugar addict. And I find it harder than I thought it would be.

… Not because I cannot do it but because of the people around me that have comments about it: “you can eat a little”, “don’t be silly you don’t need to stop eating sugar completely”, “just have sugar on the weekend”, “the body needs sugar too”, “here, have some dessert”, etc etc… I am so SICK of it! WHY DO I HAVE TO DEFEND MYSELF???!?!?! By being a recovering sugar addict I should just say “I am allergic to sugar” or maybe even “I am a diabetic” would that change the reactions and make them more supportive? Do I have to start lying  about why? You don’t offer an alcoholic a drink on the weekends, say that wine is good for blood circulation, or tell him that he can have it once and a while??? No, I didn’t think so.. to me sugar is a drug and to me sugar is a far worse drug then alcohol will ever be to me.. so please…

I don’t want sugar in my life anymore. I don’t want to want it, and I wish I never eat it again… I know I will have sugar again eventually just because it is so hard to avoid but if I know about it, and if I can do something about it – I do NOT want sugar. Understood?!

(I need to point out that my husband, Nutritionist and Health Clinician: Tony, and friend C have been HUGE supporters of my efforts so to those I am forever thankful)

Are you also fighting for what you believe in? (Health, life, religion, etc) Please share your thought and why your surroundings are making it so much harder for you then it has to be.

I am currently reading Lick the Sugar Habit by Nancy Appleton PhD – to get emotional support and also strength to push through as I am going through the toughest part of my recovery. A recovery filled with sweet dreams and cravings. It helps me to continually learn about the effects of sugar to our body and health.
