|Hello, heres a bit about my experiences
I'm Avi from India. I've been using sugar as a crutch since I was a kid as the thing I could use when I felt a sense of unease that could have been resolved in many healthier ways.

|Hey I'm Ellie
I am 28 and I am finally going completely cold turkey and quitting sugar for good. I have decided that I am going to go cold turkey because I have attempted to cut down gradually and have the best of world's before and its left me craving it more. So I am completely cutting it out my life.
So far I am 3 days and 15 hours into sugar free life style and I have so far managed to not eat sweets, chocolate or biscuits.
The other news is that I haven't eaten crisps or junk food.wooo

i have read the book and really, really want to do it. I just have trouble imagining a life without chocolate.
I am 56 years old and my addiction has increased greatly since the menopause.
I am scared of withdrawal and still being able to work.
Should I try to time giving up so the worst of it falls over a weekend? Is that possible.
Any help and encouragement much appreciated.
