... my name is Adrienne and I'm a sugar addict. Seriously, I never viewed sugar as a "drug" until recently. I have come to realize that I do well all day, every day until I give in to my craving for sweets with something sugary. I LOVE chocolate.... so instead of depriving myself, I would allow one piece to get rid of the craving. BUT once I had that one piece, I was more likely to want another piece later. Then more, and more, and MORE!! Before I knew it, I was back to "too much!" The past week I've been PMS-ing, which means the cravings are INTENSE. The first day I caved, just a little.... and then had the worse cravings to deal with for the rest of the day. The past 3 days I resisted altogether and have not had occurrences AT ALL... once the craving passed it was GONE! Feeling an added motivation today just from making this realization: sugar is my drug of choice, and I am a recovering addict!
