I removed all tempting foods from my house, exercised moderation instead of full abstinence with sweet things, eliminated grains, IF'd, drank lots of raw Jersey grassfed milk, and still binged. DAILY. I had physical urges to get more sugar, even though it meant leaving the house and buying it, every 5 minutes.

Your contribution has been noted. If anyone comes to this thread looking for the "sugar isn't actually addicting and we should eat this processed refined white powder daily even though we avoid all processed foods" view, we will be sure to point them to you.
This is just one of many studies finding that sugar is as addictive as other super-refined feel-good white powders, namely, cocaine & heroin: Sugar as addictive as cocaine, heroin, studies suggest - New York Daily News
No need to reply; I've said my piece.
Yes, it does, and in two years, I have never before been tempted to use it, but have never before seen such rude, dismissive, pontificating, proselytizing behavior on MDA.
