I quit abusive relationship. I quit smoking. I quit vaping salt nicotine, yes, the one that vape bloggers tell you is impossible to quit. I overcame opioid drugs addiction that developed when I recovered after a surgery back in 2015.

My last addiction is sugar. Yesterday night was the night when I ate about 100 grams of it in one take, feeling like I need more and more to take that hunger away. It felt EXACTLY like when I was hitting my 50mg vape literally every 20 seconds no matter the headache and dizziness.

I’m already insulin-resistant. After I’ve eaten all that sugar I felt really thirsty and then it hit me. I don’t want diabetes. I don’t want to inject myself. And I’m already insulin-resistant. It’s not me who crave sugar, it’s my internal animal and it only understands the language of pain and fear of death.

After I quit it, I’m officially a superhuman. Addicted to nothing but self-expression. That’s what I like, that’s who I naturally am.

    if you want to get rid of sugar try keto diet

    Replace it with aspartame and rigorously measure everything you eat and document macros. The intellectual side of your brain can override the impulse side if you allow it to.

    @SortOfTested I think fear of death is a stronger motivator than cheats and replacements

    You're confusing process with fad. Waiting until you're near death to get motivation is a great way to die.

    One thing that helps me a lot is to make the drug less accessible and set the physical boundary - "NO I'm not going down that aisle in the store" or "NO I'm not going to the gas station to get snacks". But you got this bro!

    Dunno if it'll help you but when I need to stop eating (I've also had issues with this previously), I brush my teeth with the mintiest toothpaste I can find.

    Seems to help.

    Good job being healthier, by the way. Boubas should follow your example.

    ++ for Keto. It can be absolutely delicious, and encourages eating very well.

    Also, kale cheeseburger salads are probably the best salads, ever.

    Eat pasta instead! I don’t understand these fad diets but pasta or rice fire and fill me up! You wouldn’t want sugar after eating a big bowl of ziti

    @d-fanelli because both pasta and rice converts DIRECTLY to glucose inside your stomach.

    I used to put 3 sugars in my coffee so that’s way too much sugar considering I would go through av 6 cups a day. Now I use a couple of hermesetas, That was about 4 years ago. I smoked cigarettes and then cafe cremes for many years. I quit cold turkey over 2 years ago. That was the hardest thing I have ever done. Now due to lockdown I am drinking a bottle of wine every single day. I used to be alcohol free monday to friday. I am really struggling to quit and go back to my normal ways. Addiction is a gradual thing and is so hard to fight alone.
