Pull out the one tooth that craves sweets
The thing is, we used to not have any sugar, and what we call our sweet tooth is really our body's inability to handle sugar. We aren't supposed to eat a lot of it, and the sugar we are supposed to eat is in our foods. Once we start adding sugar in, we start craving more sugar. At best sugar is a trigger " food ", and at worst can be addictive.
The best way is cold turkey, but even done as NIRERIN did it, by weaning yourself off sugar, is a good thing. Once you are past eating sugar, everything you eat will taste better, and foods like fruit will taste super sugary, and even overcooked vegetables will taste sugary. I forgot my green beans yesterday, and they tasted like I added sugar, since I didn't remember till I heard them sizzling.
Even sugar alcohols cause me to have cravings, so while mints, and gum are sugar free, they might not do the trick.
