    I struggle with sugar addiction apparently (in denial because I ate so well, but the urge doesn't let up!), and in the throws of stress tend to want potato chips, Starburst, and ice-cream (like a recovering alcoholic I'll say that I've been two years off the Lays and Starburst, and almost a year wit...
