"I’m tired, it’s been a long day, that’s my way to relax… I need to find another way to relax that doesn’t require eating sweets in my room."
Let's get real. Sugar is satisfying, and as humans we are pleasure seeking creatures.
So how do you overcome a sugar habit that is so deeply gratifying in the immediacy, and yet so ultimately dissatisfying in the long run and even intermediate?
It's hard to quit sugar because you have conflicting feelings about sugar.
You want it, and you don't want it.
You are content, but you are not content.
You want the taste and bliss it brings... but you also want your health.
If you are nodding your head "Yes, that's me," then congratulations! Recognizing and examining this conflict is the first step to overcoming your sugar "addiction."
