Sugar Darling

C-A-N-D-Y. I’m pretty sure it was the first word I learned how to spell. I remember my mom spelling it to my dad in the kitchen as she shook her head no. I figured it out pretty quickly.

Most of my friends grew up snacking on sweets like I did. But I have always known that I liked it a little too much. I’d get out of bed and go to the kitchen in the middle of the night just to eat a spoonful of sugar. This was in elementary.

Over the years, I’ve tried to kick the habit through various means. Whenever it’s time to fast from something, I usually choose sugar because it’s definitely a sacrifice in my world. But after the 40 days are over with, I find myself binging on sugar again. Sometimes I’ll browse youtube for videos on sugar and my findings are pretty consistent.

Sugar is a drug.

It’s a legal drug that society gets hooked on while still in diapers. But it’s a drug. Yesterday I stumbled upon an article by Alicia Silverstone on her site www.TheKindLife.com. I love how she writes in the voice I remember from Clueless back in the day. Anyway, I was encouraged to read about her struggle with sugar in this article – Sugar-holics Anonymous.

Personally, I’m tired of being on and off the wagon when it comes to sweets. It needs to be a lifestyle change. God help me.

What’s your relationship like with sugar?
