My name is Rhonda and I'm addicted to candy and regular soda and junk food.
I never thought I had an addiction till I started reading a book on the addictions this guy was facing.
His symptoms he was facing were on the same basis of what I was dealing with in soda and sugar. I don't eat junk food or regular soda at home because, my boyfriend would never let me do that to myself when i'm on a diet.
I've done pretty good in the past couple months with my addiction at home. I eat yogurt and healthy cereal as my sweets, and drink diet soda instead of regular.
Then I go to school...Where the soda is, and the vending machines with candy, and friends who bring you bad fast food. Or when I go to the laundry mat I see soda and candy and no one else is around me. Thats when my addiction kicks in and I have to have soda and junk food and candy.
There are times when I just need that sugar that I might have a sip or two and end up throwing the soda away, It almost feels like I need a fix of that kind of stuff to make me feel better, but it ends up making me sick and guilty.
I'm trying to beat this addiction and I'm getting a little better, but it's no where near where I want to be. So that's why I wanted to join this team and be able to discuss this with people who are going through the same things.
