I have given up sugar. No, I’m not asking for a pat on the back, I’ve simply done something I’ve always wanted to do. But that said, never in my wildest dreams did I ever realize just how addicted I’ve become to it and how difficult it would be to let go of. Gripped by a kind of cold turkey, and I’m not trying to be melodramatic here, I’ve staggered through the week surprised by it’s sheer power over me. You just don’t realize how a simple little thing like sugar can actually dominate and overwhelm your life. Suddenly, waking up to a day without it is not a pleasant thought. I can’t begin to imagine the impact on those whose addictions go way beyond that of sugar. However, I must say it seems to be getting a little better, but as I say this the red lights flash. I’m only too aware of the danger of that kind of thought, but I’m determined to beat this.
