This is the part that hit me, "One of the trademarks of drug addiction is that addicts will pursue the drug even when they are suffering serious consequences for their usage. "

I don't do drugs, but food and sweets especially are my drug of choice in a way. I was driving for uber tonight and all I could think about is food and sweets. It was very hard. Sometimes I feel like I am drawn to it, I have to have it. Even though I know how much I eat of sweets would eventually kill me because of my weight and other possible medical condition caused by my weight.

It was a really slow night so I decided to come home because I could not stop thinking about food and how much I wanted to go to the dollar store and get me some gummy bears.

Some times you have to change your environment to conquer your addictions.

Father help me to have more self-control, free me from this addiction of sweets and food.

    BTDT with chocolate (and other sweets on occasion, too).........for me, keeping busy (and not having the stuff around) is key......

    I can relate to this 100% because I am addicted to sweets and food too. Even though it's bad for me and not healthy, u still eat it.

    I agree, change of environment is almost necessary. I work in a shipping Plaza where every type of food is available. I honestly think if I switch jobs, I'd lose the weight rapidly.
