Hello humans. je m’appelle Ciaran Callam and I’m a sugar addict. For as far back as I can remember I’ve been literally, irrefutably and undeniably addicted to the sweet tasting white poison we all love to cram into our food. I can’t bear to think about how much money I’ve spent on candy, chocolates, and other forms of junk throughout my life because I know it’s a figure that would horrify me to see written on paper. You see; I’ve spent countless hours gorging my face on delicious carcinogens and while I’ve got to admit that these form some of the happiest memories of my life, the fact remains that I am addicted and that something desperately needs to change. I’ve done a lot of research into the harms of sugar and now that I know just how toxic it is to my health, I can’t justify putting it into my body anymore. There’s also the fact that I’ve been feeling the negative effects of having sugar in my diet for a few years now.  Whenever I eat sugary things, my thoughts and memory get hazy as all hell, my hayfever kicks into 5th gear, I feel physically sick and my vision actually deteriorates. Tis time for a change; so for the next 30 days I’m going cold turkey to once and for all beat my lifelong sugar addiction.

Wish a brother luck!

Day number 15

I’m gonna keep this post short and sweet because it’s quite late and I’ve still got quite a few other things that I need to do this evening. In a nutshell, I’ve eaten incredibly well today; all I’ve had is lots of vegetables, rice, chicken, turkey, beef and herbal tea. As I type these words, I can feel the hunger for sugar lurking deep within my mind, but I can also feel something else too. I also feel revulsion at the thought of what that stuff would do to me if I put it into my body and those two competing sensations are interesting to note. Revulsion is definitely the stronger emotion, but hunger is also commanding respect and the two are waging a epic battle for control of my psyche right now.Who will win?
