What's With The Sweet Stuff?!

I can't stop eating chocolate and other sweet and sickly foods. It's not like me as I've always been more of a savory sort of person! I've woken up, had my breakfast and then scarfed down a chocolate bar straight after. I need chocolate after every meal, it's weird.

Your body is craving sugar as alcohol is mostly sugars. Let yourself indulge for a while. No one ever got a ticket for driving under the influence of chocolate.

Yep me too. I have never been much for sweets. I mean I liked sweets and chocolate but never really had a craving for it. I could take it or leave it.

Now I have to have it at least once a day, specifically chocolate. Just a simple chocolate bar is the best.

Someone else mentioned popcorn. I have eaten more popcorn in the last two months then over the last year.

That's your body craving sugar and nice things. It passes, kinda. I still have a weird craving for the drink 'Sprite' every now and again. I always drank loads when I was using and every now and again I get an urge for it. Rarely ever act on it but it's just the sugar my body wants.

I too had an humongous sweet tooth when I quit. I bought a huge tub of marshmellow fluff( I know gross) and seriously dipped everything in it!!! It lasted a few weeks. Adding small protein packed snacks quiets then a little. Peanut butter, nuts, cheese.

Be gentle with yourself listen to your body. It is easier to loose 7 pounds then to quit drinking! We're all here for you.

Same here! I became a triple chocolate cupcake fan
But hey. I will focus on one thing at a time.
Staying sober is the first priority...

Plus...I was drinking so many calories with margaritas so I'm not worried..

If I can control drinking, controlling diet and exercising will be a piece of cake!
...uuu cake, need to stop by the bakery

Have a great weekend and stay strong!!
