Tell us about something you’ve tried to quit. Did you go cold turkey, or for gradual change? Did it stick?
Hehehehe, I’ve had so many things that I’ve tried to quit over the years. Biting my nails, picking scabs, eating too much junk food, telling my biological brother that he’s adopted… None of it really works. Well, except for the thing with my brother. We don’t really talk, and haven’t really for a number of years, so that one kind of just fizzled out on it’s own.
I did go through a period where I stopped biting my nails because I was introduced to manicures so I had to stop biting them… but then I somehow managed to stop looking after my nails and resumed to biting them again. I really should do something about that.
I’ve also been on a very, very slow course of trying to eat a lot healthier and cut down my sugar intake in my diet… this has proven to be quite a roller coaster. I will go through a phase where I might eat really healthy for lunch and dinner, and then one afternoon I’ll completely cave and absolutely annihilate a block of chocolate, or a couple of pastries etc. I think my biggest weakness would be biscuits. I need to start getting myself off biscuits (says me as I’m quite literally opening my drawer to pull out a couple of bikkies right now to have with the remnants of my Green Tea w/ Jasmine!).
Although lately I’ve become obsessed with cake. All I seem to want to eat is cake – to the point where I can literally taste it in my mouth without actually haven eaten any. I’m not sure what that’s called, but it’s not right. Even when I’m at the supermarket buying healthy food… the voice in me (which I’m pretty sure is just my stomach, but on speakerphone) just keeps saying “cake… cake… cake… cake…” and I know that if I were to actually buy a cake, I’d have no problems whatsoever in eating the entire thing. By myself. In one sitting. In less that ten minutes.
The worst part is probably the local supermarket at work… they have an entire shelf in their bakery section that is just different flavoured swiss rolls… There’s a chocolate one, and there’s a honey one.
And I want them both.
With a giant cup of tea… well, more like a bowl of tea.
How the hell do I get myself out of this one? How do I kick my cake-addiction??
