  2. Sugar is a bad addiction. This week I have been drinking hot chocolate like crazy and running to the store to buy cookies. Sweets are my weakness, I always craved them. I always seem to go to food for comfort. It’s bad and I should find comfort in something that doesn’t involve consuming in a physical sense. I also feel bad mentally/emotionally after eating bad foods like that.

  3. Great video on sugar addiction. I agree with your comment about a society being addicted to sugar. I know for me, sugar supresses anxiety and anger. But the feeling doesn’t go away, just buried further inward. I hope you find work in social justice. It is well needed.
