Is Your Sugar Addiction Really About Sugar?

"sugar addiction"A lot of the time, it doesn’t really matter what the actual food is does it?

Oh sure, you might go through phases.

The red licorice phase.

The supermarket-brand choc-jam donut phase.

The family-size blocks of chocolate, the addiction to which there are of course sub-phases; everything from plain to black forest to caramel to snack flavour. And of course every other flavour in between, on one occasion or another.

Year after year of sugar addiction, of telling yourself that this is the last time, certainly gives you plenty of time to really test out your options.

But mostly, and even within the phases, you’re not picky enough to turn down anything that you know will satisfy your need for something sweet, are you? Not, at least, when the need to binge; to eat really hits you.

And when that need truly comes?

You need something sweet NOW. Something decadent. Something soft or hard or liquid or solid or expensive or cheap or homemade or bought, it doesn’t matter.

Nothing matters, except the sweet sweet release.

is your sugar addiction really about sugar?

And it is a release, isn’t it? This addiction, this need, this never-quite-satisfied monster within you.

It’s a release that means that finally, and once again, if even for a short while, you can escape the stress, the overwhelm, the confusion, the uncertainty. But most of all, most of all –

It’s escaping yourself.

A big part of my healing from bulimia and then binge eating was using a journal. I still use a journal, nearly every day. It’s a mental detox or purge and it is incredibly healing.

So today, or any day you feel that urge, pull out your journal and write.

Think about your relationship with food and binge eating.

What do you think you’re really addicted to? It’s not a particular food, is it? Even if you do have a favourite.

And it’s not even really about the sugar, the trans fats or sweet comfort starch, or gooey mess. Of course there is a physical addiction, a connection to sugar and all things sweet, but really, really what this is about is creating certain feelings within yourself.

For me it was always about a need to escape, a need to feel like everything else can fade away and like I can take control even if my method of taking control – binge eating – was actually all about losing control of what I really wanted; who I really wanted to be.

But let’s talk about you.

Get out your journal. And write. Write about your addiction, this thing that controls you, this monster that doesn’t want to let you escape.

Let it all out. Write as though your life depends upon it.

And somewhere in your writing, at the start or at the end or both, us this mantra –

“I am in control of my now. I create my reality. I can be free”

Whether or not you break free from attending my workshop,you are worth living an incredible life; a life you love.So whatever you do, you simply MUST find a way to get there.

And maybe it feels like this is not the right time for you, or that it’s too scary or you’re just not sure, but you know what?

It will never be the right time if you’re not careful. There will always be an excuse.

Maybe it’s time to finally acknowledge that, and step towards freedom.

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’ve created a place. A revolution of sorts. A HUB OF BADASSERY.

A place for learning, training, strategy and getting sh*t done.

A place where women unite to act fast, think later, to do in a day what most do in a week, in a week what most do in a month, in a month what most do in a lifetime or not at all. It’s a place for driven, fast-thinking, creative and utterly utterly purpose-driven ‘do what it takes’ women entrepreneurs who know that in order to live the life they truly CRAVE they must be willing to press play NOW.

It’s my Rich Chick Mastermind, and right now I have re-opened the doors, just for a few days. You can come join us either month by month, or VIP your fine self and receive access (yes really!) to every course I’ve ever created. You’ll also receive thousands of dollars worth of bonuses, plus all my NEW live content either way. And to top it off? You’ll get to come meet all the other driven badasses who are out there changing the world. Falling in to who they always WERE,

and who they know they must be.

Come join us gorgeous. Say yes to the life you really want. Say yes to doing what it takes. Say yes to falling into YOU, and being damn proud of it. Say yes to no fucks given that it is ‘supposed’ to be such and such way. YOU KNOW HOW IT’S MEANT TO FEEL FOR YOU.

And you know that that is the way.

Come see what I made you,
