Addiction is an issue affecting every family. One of the core issues with every addiction is the subconscious need to change the way you feel. People will reach for anything to alter their present moment and the best things for that are sugar, alcohol, tobacco and drugs. Each of these may lead into long-term addictions.
Sugar seems so benign because its everywhere and it can take control of your diet so easily that you would never suspect its role in addiction. It is now know to be more addictive than cocaine.
One of the worst aspects of sugar addiction is that it weakens your willpower and sets you up for other addictions.
Controlling your sugar cravings gives you a handle on all other cravings and should be the first step anyone takes to gaining control over their lives.
