As a kid, I enjoyed chocolates and sweets, but I don’t think that would have qualified for a sweet tooth. A few years back, it was heart burn which forced me into a vicious cycle of seeking dessert after every meal. I didn’t realise it was heart burn. Nor did I realise that I was consuming too much sugar. With time, I just subscribed to the category of people who love sweets, and I was very happy being there.
With the current state of my body, I can almost do no exercise. I’ve thus been told to control sugar to control my weight. Someone said, “do it for six months” and I laughed. That is impossible. So in that moment of a challenge being thrown at me, I accepted one month as the duration. To stop desserts and chocolates. Right now, I am craving. It has been about 30 minutes now. Kind of struggling. Is this what addictions are about? Asking, because I have never had to give up a daily activity like smoking. Giving up Maggi and eggs is a different kind of challenge. And I have managed that one very well. But this seems to be a bloody difficult ask. I don’t think I will last too long.
What’s your poison?
