I say bite the bullet, suck it up, and tough it out for a few days - then it's done. Your cravings will reduce drastically. The more you feed it, the more you fuel it. Change your mindset around it, too. If all you think is "I can't have it" then you'll just want it more and more and more. Tell yourself, "I can have it. I can eat whatever I want. I'm choosing not to. Maybe tomorrow."

allow yourself a little bit. I find people are a bit too restrictive on themselves, thus craving/needing/wanting it even more.

I'm an ice cream lover, so what I did is bought those dryer's dibs or whatever, and whenever I crave ice cream, I allow myself like five or six, rather than a whole serving.

You can do that with anything, just have a couple tastes and then you'll be satisfied, and don't have like 20 "tastes" a day. Just one or 2.

Have you tried fruit? If i really want sugar an orange or apple or melon or pineapple or any really sweet fruit helps a lot. no calorie drinks with artificial sweetener also help.

Addicted to sugar

I recommend the book--The Sugar Addict's Total Recovery Program--It is really working for me, particularly the potato (!?) at night. Good luck--Flexi

when you want sugar drink lemonade

Make a big bowl of lemonade and make it sweet with splenda for beberages,or whatever substitute of sugar you use when you get the crave drink slowly this sweet drink and it also will help you a lot with not felling hungry, tomatoe juice does that too, but if either way you can't figth is maybe it means your anxious so don go for sweets do something you has posponed or walk a little with your favorite music is better, go out withot money so you won't stop to buy water and ending buyin sweets, make an effort organize everything in your home and for your sake don't buy sweets keep the temptation far away.
best of lucks.
