New group: Sugarholics Anonymous

Just in case you didn't get to the bottom of my long-winded treatise about going cold turkey on sugar, I started a new group called Sugarholics Anonymous.

Anyone struggling with sugar cravings, come join us! Active posters especially welcome.

sugar addiction

It amazes me how many products are out there to help people quit smoking but nothing for sugar aholics. Where's my patch. Sugar is just as addictive as a drug. You get that sugar high, it makes you feel better, and it is always in the back of your mind. Anyone have any suggestions on how to turn the craving off.

New Group: Sugarholics Anonymous

Once I have even a little bit of a sweet, it triggers me to eat more and more and more; yet I can't avoid it because I crave it so much. Trying artificial sweetners or sugar alcohols still trigger the sweet tooth and overeating. Supposedly Atkins induction phase is to cure this but when I tried that I still craved sweets and just ate Atkins desserts which really aren't any better than sugar probably. How do people deal with such strong cravings? Suggestions please.

My name is S************and I am a sugarholic

I really need that patch..Bad.
I volunteer to be in the first group for the clinical trials. The only thing that can get between me and my sweets is cold, hard, painful denial. It really is a physical need that is set off by the first taste of sugar.
Why is the medical world ignoring us! Why? Why?

Unfortunately (I guess) the only thing I have found to turn off the cravings is to stop giving in to them. It's torture for the first few days, but then the cravings completely disappear. If I give it enough time, I'm able to have a little bit here and there without wanting to binge b/c my tastes have adjusted and it's all so sweet - kind of like trying to drink Coke after drinking Diet Coke.

I am a sugarholic and would like to know whether there is actually a formal Sugarholism Anonymous. I live in South Africa and would like to start one if there isn't a group like that.
Please, can anybody tell me how to do that?

I love sweets! However, I found that the more sweets I had, the worse my migraines were. The migraines started when I was coming down from a sugar high. I would eat more sugar, but I was just pushing off the inevitable. I used to be addicted to swedish fish, bottle caps, etc. One day, my boss bought me a box of bottle caps. I could have hurt him! I was doing so well and he hands me a temptation. Well, that was over a month ago, and I still have some bottlecaps left in the box (usually I finish a box in a few hours). I have managed to give myself only two bottlecaps a day at the end of the work day. None on the weekends. I keep them at work hidden in a drawer and have two on my way out. By the time I've had them, I'm in my car, and the box is still at work. I'm not tempted to go back in the building to get more. This process has helped me a lot. Good luck!
