    Has anyone else found themselves sniffing everything that there family eats, my kids look at me like im from a different planet as I sit there with my nose in there bag of crisps, Or there sandwich. I find that if I sniff long enough I am satisfied. My favourite thing to sniff is cadbury`s chocolate.

    SONKIE (sniff sniff sorry I have my nose over a clemantine ) mmmmm

    OMG YES!! My daughter even disowned me at the cinema because I was lifting the perspex lids on all the pick'nmix and taking a mega whiff! lol

    I sniff absolutely every food!! I love sniffing McDonalds... and salt n vinegar crisps... and shepherds pie... and chocolate donuts...I sniff food everywhere! lol No shame and NO gain!

    I'm all in favour of sniffing food... it satisfies my cravings too sometimes.. so is definitely a thumbs up! AND... if anyone asks you can always tell a fib and say you lost your sense of smell for a while and are trying to get it back up to speed!! (well, I'm nowt if not inventive ;) )

    Carry on sniffing!!! :D :D

    HEE HEE glad I`m not alone, it is amazing how not eating makes your sense of smell so sharp. I definately will not be giving up the sniffing lol, it does satisfy cravings.

    I've always been a bit nervous of sniffing too much. But have every now and again had a really good sniff of something and it seemed to satify me. I would still be a bit nervous of sniffing everything though. Just in case.

    Sniffing fish and chips is torture, but sniffing crisps on occasion has definitely helped! :D

    Teehee. I couldn't sniff, but I did pretend to eat and it got me through many a tough time.

    I would actually act out taking a bar of something, opening the packet carefully, taking a bit and chewing...working it around my mouth and savouring. A few bites more and I could convince myself I had eaten it so I didn't need anything else.

    Cripes. Mad or what.:eek:

    Wow I wouldn`t be able to do that it would have my mouth watering, but if it works for you keep it up, you cant knock anything if it stops you from giving in.

    It's weird it worked for me. I was trained in a the art of "act as if" in a home once. It was considered therapy. You had to do repetitive tasks over and over again. In fact everything that happened you had to smile and pretend you wanted it that way.

    Bloody annoying at the time, but I got quite good at it, and it's served me well :)

    Reckoned that helped me believe I was really having it, though I suppose I could have just pretended that I didn't want the bloomin' thing in the first place, but that would have taken the fun out of it :D

    Wonder if this sort of therapy still exists? Anyone heard of it? It was actually called "Act as if...."

    Sonkie - what have your started!

    Ok I admit it, I sniff too!

    There, it's out in the open now, no going back!

    Today my son made a cheese and ham toastie. I sniffed in the delicious aroma of toasted bread, cheese and ham. Then I have it back to him.

    "Are you sure?" He asked with a sly grin. "Take it away." I replied decisively.

    alrighty, as it is confession time... I had a date with "Eric" and he took a swig of red wine and then kissed me so I could taste it! :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    It was yummy and I savoured the taste for ages! (good excuse for a long snog too!)... never been tempted to do that with food though - a bit too extreme... not a bliddy birdy up for regurgitated food! yukk! lol sorry.. rambling now...

    Sniffing definitely definitely gets the thumbs up from me!! Works a treat.. satisfies the old cravings.. :D

    sonkie...

    I have resisted being anywhere near food until i read this post so i thought i'd try it out.

    stood sniffing kevins sausage sandwich last night before handing it to him (got the oddest look lol) and it actually WAS satisfying just having a good whiff.

    So tried this again today before he went to work and this time he was having a big tuna/mayo salad sarnie. good god i nearly shoved it in my mouth! I think he knew it too cos he kinda was holding onto it very tight and resting back on one foot just incase he had to run quickly. he wouldnt let it get toooo near my nose either lol.
