I think I have an addictive personality.
Meaning that I'm one of those people who are easily addicted to things, not that people get addicted to me.
It's probably a good thing that I don't drink, or I would be an alcoholic.
For me, it seems like everything is either all or nothing. If I'm reading novels, I read multiple books a week. When I index, I do batch after batch after batch. When I get into family history, my housework goes to pot. And if I'm eating sugar... well, I think you get the picture.
Luckily, it's not that I have a hard time quitting, it just that I haven't figured out that whole moderation thing.
Going a month without dessert was easier than I would ever had imagined, but now that I am done with that, I find myself right back in my same habits. I tend to graze through the afternoon, and sugar is my favorite. A handful of chocolate chips here, a slice of banana bread there. Unfortunately, it all adds up. Add dessert a couple of times a week and it's not a pretty picture.
So, once again, I have decided that some action is necessary. And so I will be participating in this. You're welcome to join (by tomorrow).
I'll let you know how it goes.
