Probably due to its addictive properties, cancer cells crave sugar.
A couple years ago I felt the Spirit telling me to avoid refined sugars.

One of my doctors once told me that sugar has the same chemical composition as alcohol so it is only natural that people react as if it were an addiction. I can do very well if I leave sugar alone but one piece of candy will throw me into a feeding frenzy where I can't get enough! It is truly amazing that it does act so much like a drug! (My drug of choice is chocolate, but cake or cookies will feed the addiction just as well!)

Thank God in all things!

Today's devotional

This is the part that hit me, "One of the trademarks of drug addiction is that addicts will pursue the drug even when they are suffering serious consequences for their usage. "

I don't do drugs, but food and sweets especially are my drug of choice in a way. I was driving for uber tonight and all I could think about is food and sweets. It was very hard. Sometimes I feel like I am drawn to it, I have to have it. Even though I know how much I eat of sweets would eventually kill me because of my weight and other possible medical condition caused by my weight.

It was a really slow night so I decided to come home because I could not stop thinking about food and how much I wanted to go to the dollar store and get me some gummy bears.

Some times you have to change your environment to conquer your addictions.

Father help me to have more self-control, free me from this addiction of sweets and food.


What are some of you addictions? Mine is soda and gummy bears.
