    You can use fruits as an alternative to sweets. For the cravings, there is no easy way to do that. The only way you can do that is determination. Your eagerness to stop eating too much sweet must be stronger. Make sure that your goals are met and never give in to the temptation.

    Pardon me for saying this. Addiction is all in the mind. You can quit sugar by having a firm resolve. First is to make a research on the ill effects of excessive sugar intake. Next is to focus on your health thai it can be ruined by your addiction to sugar. Focus on the positive and negative on sugar. After a week of concentration, quit taking sugar.

    I know that the feeling of having more and more sugar is not easy to overcome. Sweetness is very enticing but you should not allow the crave for sugar to overwhelm you. However, it could be that to do that is easier said than done, There is no easy way about it so you may try to gradually ease yourself out of the sugar dependency. You could start by having sugar free fruit juices in place of consuming sugary drinks. When you go to the store try to avoid buying the sweetened drinks and sugar-filled snacks, this could be a starting point to the downgrading your sugar intake.

    Alexandoy is right, your addiction is not real and you should talk to someone about this right away. Until that time you may use alternatives to sugar as, fruits or honey, maple syrup, stevia, coconut sugar, etc.
    You must stop consuming too much sugar, is not healthy at all and your body may suffer later!

    I wish you know the harmful effects of taking lots of sugar contents in the long-run. In as much as I know that it is hard to stop something you have formed the habit of doing especially when it comes to something that has to do with the mouth such as drinking and food intake, I feel that you have to always check the side effects of taking lots of sugar. Yeah, I know it can be sweet, but if you compare and contrast the risk in the future such as being diabetic, then you will be concerned more about reducing the amount you take every day.

    It may not be easy, but it takes your committed mind to stop what you've formed the habit of doing every day. I wish you luck on your quest to reduce your intake of sugar.

    It's really hard to cut on sugar and sweets but as what many people commented, you have to have a great amount of resolve to quit the habit. And if you knew the dangers of having too much sugar on your diet, you will eventually realize that sugar is not something to take easy. You might suffer from diabetes and other dreadful diseases if you continue on taking too much sugar. You might want to switch to using honey as an alternative to sugar.

    There are healthier alternatives for sugar such as a agave or pure honey, they might not give the same exact taste but it's still tastety. You may also eat more fruits which are sweet instead of an unhealthy bread or candy. I know it can be a bit tough but anyone can do it all one must do is find healthier alternatives of their favorite snacks.

    A lot of people are addicted to sugar and salt and the number has only increased, you can try using a sugar alternative or cut down a bit on the amount of sugar.

    I think starting to get used to consuming products with natural sugar is a great way to start getting rid of this kind of problem. You should start with some fruits.

    It would be very good for you.

    Yes, I think you can find many sugar alternatives, such as honey and fruits. It might be good to have someone for you to hold the accountability, perhaps you can keep track of your sugar intake daily or take a 30 day challenge of no sugar.

    I just joined a 30 day challenge "a better day, a better you" by The Modest Mom blog where the mission is to get rid of sugar and exercise. Perhaps you will get more motivation joining a group of people who are having the same target.

    I agree with what @kaka135@kaka135 suggested. If you find it hard to stop on your own, you must think about joining a support group focused on healthy living. You can set goals, monitor your growth and have a plan in place to reach your goals. Also, don't try and stop using sugar suddenly altogether. Try skipping some days and allow your body to get used to not taking sugar gradually. Say for example, you start by only having sugar on Mondays and Fridays. The rest of the week, you have honey or another suitable alternative to sugar. This way, your body is tricked into thinking its still taking sugar but you are gradually taking it away.

    How about Stevia, which Dr. Oz specialist he had on his show says it's one of the best to use or coconut sugar which is very pricey, so I get Stevia from Walmart-the cheapest store for Stevia, so far. I watch what I buy, read the labels and buy products with low sugar or no sugar added. Luckily more products are going this way of no sugar added. Some pastries are very low sugar and is not that sweet. I love no sugar added apple pies.

    So, I think you're doing great. I hope you can get good results. I know how hard it is to resist the "bad sugars", but the result is very worthwhile. You'll see. :)

    I think anytime you try to change an addiction you need to look first and see what kind of need the addiction is serving in your life. Unless you figure out what it is, even if you change your sugar addiction you might replace it with another addiction or go back to sugar. It happens!
