Gonna beat the sugar demon
Thursday, April 13, 2017
Controlling the sugar intake is the most challenging vice I have had to overcome in my life. Other vices were tough but not as tough as sugar. The challenge is that sugar is everywhere.
In beating other vices I didn't have to worry about the vice being hidden and snuck into my life multiple times a day and by so many I care about in my world. Most vices are a direct individual choice as to their use. But food, and the repetitive use of sugar, is so deeply rooted and openly accepted in our culture. Its a challenge we need to be aggressively fighting every day and is requiring a whole new set of rules in how I face it.
I am taking on this challenge as the biggest competitor I have yet had to face. I will beat this demon and remove it from my world, except where I consensually choose for it to be there, But it will not nonconsensually beat me.
