Up to a week ago, I too craved sugary foods. Best bet is just to stop cold turkey eating it. Mind over matter! Every night I would have to have something ( just thinking about it makes my mouth water.) Keep lots of fruits around as they to help to curve your sweet tooth.
I know how difficult it seems to stop doing it, and it's not any easier said then done, but you can totally do it!!
When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful.
Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.

Minty gum usually helps! Otherwise I would say indulge in a small amount of chocolate then wrap it up and put it somewhere you can't see it.
I have the dreaded chocolate cravings too! Honestly, what I do is I indulge when I feel it is appropriate-- To each his own there. But I don't want it to become something I do daily. I crave it more when I tell myself I can't have it. I CAN have anything I want. I can CHOOSE not to though. I merely tell myself instead of " You'll feel better if you just eat it" I say " Actually, I'll feel better if I don't. My body will feel better if I don't. Chocolate will exist for a long, long time. It's not going anywhere anytime soon."
I've heard that carob can also satisfying chocolate cravings-- And a small amount of a dark chocolate on fruit works for some people. Just depends on who you are and what works for you. :)
