Sugar cravings?

Hey everyone, today is day 18

I woke up this morning at 3 am for a bowl of cereal lol, I have to laugh bc I rarely eat cereal and I don't eat sugar as often anymore. On a health kick so it's a lot of sherbet instead of ice cream kinda thing...

Did/does anyone else experience sugar cravings in the middle of the night during their early sobriety?

Yes, I experienced sugar cravings all day everyday in early sobriety
Healthier options are great , I recommend keeping a lot of fruit in the house too.

I have a problem with sugar addiction,it creeps up on me time and time again.I have just gone cold turkey again this week,sweets have been my problem this time,before that it was chocolate.

I am not newly sober,but I know more than a few people who have problems with sugar addiction.

Well done on your sober time.

My body requires sugar.......like greens I have been eating a lot of fruit which is weird cause I never used to eat fruit......now I munch on bowls of strawberries.......I got my sweet cereal too......honey smacks.......I got my kitkats......I don't mind eating the sweets......harm reduction and all that.

I find I can get to like/prefer pretty much anything, it's what the body gets used to imo. Ie. alcohol/ fatty food or when sober for a while, healthy food, although I totally get the sugar addiction. 1 day in I'm on the haribos like a man possessed

Well, alcohol is a sugar, so replacing it in early sobriety is a good idea.

They don't have plates of cookies at AA meetings just for something to look at, right?

I ate quite a bit of sugar for about three months. Now I'm back to healthier choices - but come the holidays, look out. Once I start it's really difficult for me to stop. Who me? Compulsive? Nah.

Sleeping is getting better also, forgot to add that.

I finally use my nutri-bullet, after it's been in the box for months lol. I blend kale, blueberries, avocado, banana's, apples, and flaxseeds into one pitcher for four days at a time. Drink it every morning after my run and it makes me feel full until lunchtime. Last two weeks, nothing but tuna and salmon for dinner with quinoa.

I've been meaning to kick red meat also so why not now, right
At day 18, I don't think about alcohol as much...the struggle I find, especially at night, is just keeping myself busy before bedtime. I'm doing this solo and I'm finding its getting better everyday. When I'm alone, I tell myself I wish I had a good friend right now...just to run with or even eat with but when I get out and about I kinda avoid people lol...weird I know. Its just for right now though, trying to enjoy this run with solitude (before my son gets back after the summer).
I've never been here before...

Some days it is liberating for sure.
