Hi. My Name Is Haizum.

And I am a sugar addict.

I read an article about sugar addiction just a little while ago and it occurred to me, how bad a sugar junkie I really am.

Massy only mentioned the words "chocolate cake" and, I kid you not, I started salivating.

I don't even remember having any dessert this week (I've limited myself to 3 [OH ALRIGHT, 2 DAMMIT!] a week), but apparently, I have. I don't know if that's my infamously goldfish-like memory at work, or the fact that I'm in denial.

Scary.

Whenever I admit to having an addiction to sugar, it was always accompanied with a sheepish laugh. Probably because I thought it was a ridiculous thing to be addicted to, and it shouldn't even be an issue. Apparently it is. :S

This article mentions things about this particular addiction, which aren't any different from those mentioned if you were talking about alcohol or cocaine. Again, scary.

Fortunately, I've gotten my self a Sugar Monitor. I am able to sway him sometimes to give me more leeway when it comes to chocolates, but he does this thing that makes me a little guilty about doing it. So we'll see how well this arrangement works out. :D

Wish me luck.

PS: If you want to know more about sugar addiction, A Look Inside Sugar Addiction is a good place to hang around.

Sugar addict? Good thing I'm not one though I'm seriously addicted to chocolate and icecream (baskin, haagen d & magnum) - in that case, I'm an INDIRECT sugar addict! :-)

Oh, welcome to the club! :D I think it's pretty normal for a girl to have cravings for desserts and candies.

Now, I just have to have that chocolate cheese cake. Nanti mo pi singgah sana Berry's Cake house ni! :D
