It is a habitual addiction that is making me really really ill.
I have no control and it is costing me my health.Has any one here had a sugar addiction that they have succeeded in ending and how did you do it?
Hi Marylin. I crave sugar too. So I've made the following substitutes:

Instead of hot coco --> chocolate flavored tea
Intead of apple cider --> apple cider flavored tea
Instead of doughbuts --> Bagel with cream cheese sprinkled with cinnamon (it's quite satisfying!)
Instead of frosting on strawberry shortcake --> Greek yogurt with strawberries
Instead of milk shake--> Coconut milk smoothie with fruits and veggies
