Have to Rant…it has a ton of components…
Anyone who doesn’t think sugar is addictive has never tried to get somebody to quit it.
So I finally got the family on board with no sugar around Wifey who is facing the advanced stages of Type 1 Diabetes…well except her brother who finds it completely inconceivable to ask him to go with out sugar the 2 hours a week he is here per week visiting.
1st as somebody who has battled addiction my entire life both personally and with loved ones I have great empathy.
2nd is a huge wtf. Most arguments i get in are explaining that we should help other people whether we think they deserve it or not because it is just the right thing to do. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO A FAMILY THAT THEIR SISTER AND DAUGHTER DESERVES THEIR HELP!!!
Which brings us back full circle because these are the actions of addicts to not see past their own addictions. Or at least I just keep telling myself that.
EDIT: and all ice cream, pb and other junk food I eat is sugar free. Which brings up another point that they are not addicted to sweet or carbs. There is a ton of sugar free jelly, pb and diet sodas. Bananas and mangos etc. They wont eat it. If it were carbs they would be happy with a pile of rice. They aren’t.
