All the sweets. Literally, everywhere I turn I am faced with chocolate something sprinkled with Holiday amazingness.
The plus side is I’m not a sugar crack head so I can have JUST ONE and stop.
The negative side is that many of you are in fact a sugar crack head, aka, you’re addicted to sugar, and the taste of one piece will drive you into a sugar relapse until the end of time.
Today we’re going to talk sugar addiction, because it is so very real. Many people have been consuming sugar for so long and it is a large part of their daily life. Because of these factors, they don’t even realize how bad their addiction truly is.
That is until they try to quit. Quitting sugar can be compared to quitting cigarettes or any other addictive substance. It’s hard, there are withdrawals, and you will probably relapse at least once. But, once you are free from sugar, you will feel so much better.
So how does all this apply to the Holidays?
Well, you need to identify whether you’re a sugar crack head or are clean from your sugar addiction. If you are in fact a sugar crack head still, you will not be able to eat just one cookie. You just won’t. And you need to recognize that. Know yourself and your limitations. If you can’t have just one then you probably shouldn’t have any at all.
If you are in “recovery” and can handle JUST ONE, then go for it! Everything in moderation is my take on life!
