I've got a really bad sweet tooth. I have a really tough time only eating one or two pieces of candy if I have more. I can't have a candy jar on my desk, near where I'm sitting, or anywhere near me really. Peppermints, mini candy bars, dinner mints, butterscotch, it doesn't matter what it is.
Once I have that first piece of candy, it almost feels impossible not to get another piece immediately after each piece is gone. I can go through a bag of candy that most people would have sitting in their house for months in about an hour.
For the most part, I just stay away from the candy isles at stores. Pretty much everyone else who lives in my apartment complex is nearly twice my age though, and if there's one thing old people love to do, it's give you candy. lol
I can't have candy in the apartment. I've tried putting the candy on the other side of the apartment thinking I'd be too lazy to get up and get it, but I'll be darned if I don't just keep getting up, walking to the other side of the apartment, and getting one piece at a time.
I don't want to give up candy completely. I just want to be able to have a
piece now and then.
