Sugar addict

Sugar addict

Since having a Breakdown I have got a terrible unhealthy habit of eating chocolate a lot I am not over weight mainly because I suffer from Achalasia but I feel empty inside unless I can suck on something sweet. What I would like to know is there any of you the same. I know its unhealthy and will affect my health but this is where the name addiction comes in . Having something that you know is bad for you and cant stop.

  • Hey, I was already having nightmares before I saw this picture - ahhhhhh! 😲😲😲

  • I understand because I am a chocoholic. Use it like medication. Wanting it to push away that feeling of emptiness inside me. The fact is, it only feels good for a short time, and then you crave more. I don't smoke, I don't drink, I'm agoraphobic, so what

    else do I have right now but the pleasure I get from chocolate.

  • I feel it now more than ever since giving up gags cant drink booze which really i am glad because it helped ruin my life but a night without chocolate is an empty cold long night. My carer gave me half a tub of mixed celebrations from xmas plus I have nuttella I buy that dry cracker bread crispy put spread on and its lush llooking forward to it but try and space it out. Cant enjoy food because of achalasia. Glad to know I am not alone with thesr feelings.

  • What is achalasia?

  • Its like when people over weight get a ring put around the gullet forget the surgery name anyway in my case my sphincter just before food goes into stomach that muscle has stopped working mine is badly scarred and cant eat solids and my esophagus is now acting as my stomach very unplaesant feeling sick everyday in pain alot with spasms and high chance of esophageal cancer cells growing. Anyone can get this disease even children. Wouldn't wish it on my worse enemy. Look It up on Wikipedia. At first i was 17 st went down to about 8st in weeks people thought i had cancer even my doc been awful unlucky with health i blame very stressful chilhood you name it and I been through it Mad to think many go through life without one traumatized event others cant avoid it if they treid.

  • Oh I am so very sorry. I didn't mean to overstep my bounds, just had never heard of it before. Thank you for explaining it. We learn by others sharing. I wish you well x
