I am addicted to sugar.

I know it sounds crazy. But I find it ironic that one tool I used to quit smoking was to imagine me before I started smoking. I was pretty healthy. But I forgot that I had an unhealthy relationship with sugar. 

My mom had hypOglycemia when I was younger, so she removed all the sugar in the house, changed our diets, and therefore prevented herself from getting diabetes. 

I used to sneak around in junior high and buy bags of candy with my babysitting money. Later I just got a job in a restaurant washing dishes, where I had access to all the desserts I cared for...then I actually became the dessert cook, and salad person. Around that time I started smoking. 

Now I really need to stop eating cookies! They are there at my work. Today I took some healthier cookies and ate them for breakfast, then before I remembered I was going to try not to eat cookies today, I ate 2 more at work. It just reminded me of smoking, and other addictions. Its weird. 

I have blood sugar issues myself, it's managable, but jeeze I need to manage my cookie habit. I know it makes me tired, and hungry for other foods. I am gaining weight. I am not even thinking of smoking, honestly I think then I would just be smoking and eating cookies. Part of it is that I quit drinking a couple of years ago. and alchohol is also sugar.ug. 

Otherwise HI everyone! How goes it? I am still here, I come here a little less these days. But am still here. 

I have been quit for 5 Months, 3 Weeks, 3 Days, 8 hours, 40 minutes and 31 seconds (176 days). I have saved $1,146.33 by not smoking 3,527 cigarettes. I have saved 1 Week, 5 Days, 5 hours and 55 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 10/9/2011 10:47 AM
