Help - serious sugar problems

I'm trying to cut back on my sweets, but I can't seem to do it.

I quit for a week several months ago, and it was great. But then I
started up again, and it is worse than ever. Cookies and candy are
about all I eat. Cookies seem like health food these days.

Can anyone help me out? Any good resources? Anyone want to give it a
shot with me? Maybe I need a partner.

I'm not doing this to lose weight. I just want to eat more healthy and
be a better example for my family. I also want to keep my teeth a
little longer and avoid all of the serious health problems I'm sure I'm
going to face if I keep this up.

Thanks!

Protesting the war in a newsgroup is like selling opera tickets at a
baseball game, people know why you are there, but thats NOT why they are
there.

They might be able to wean themselves off of sugar using Splenda.
Not the perfect solution, but sugar CAN be a real addiction!

One thing that has helped me kick some serious sweets cravings is uping my
water intake. It sounds funny but it's true. When I get a serious craving
for sweets, I drink a HUGE glass of water, munch a little ice and go for a
walk or find somethingto occupy myself.
Hope that helps.

Thank you for your message. I will try this. I always drink a lot of
water with my sweets. I never thought about just skipping the
sweets...

Thanks again.
