    Yuk! All those E's in them! Just a lot of rubbish!
    Now if you are talking CHOCOLATE especially milk CHOCOLATE - now that is adorable, georgous, delicous,yummy and er -- just about every other description you can think of!
    And I'm not the sort of person that can buy a bar and have a little bit every day - oh no!! the lot goes in one feel swoop!:D

    Think i would go cold turkey on them. Your addicted to the sugar. You'll feel better for not having them, after the shakes and withdrawals have passed. Your body will get used to eating natural sweet things, eg fruit etc and will be sooooooo much better for you.

    I have to do the cold-turkey approach. Once I've had a couple I can't stop and my cravings get worse instead of better.

    If I'm going to buy anything I get ice lollies. The Refresher ones are delicious (4 syns) and a bargain at £1 for a box of 8 or 10 (can't remember), or Mini Milks are lovely, or, my all time faves, Fab lollies.

    There's a recipe around somewhere but if you mix sugar free jelly with extra gelatine and set it on a plate so it's quite thin it can be made into something resembling a jelly snake!
    Might be worth a shot??

    I'm just the same with sweeties!
    Don't drink, don't smoke. Can take or leave chocs af crisps

    but sweeites are my downfall. I went cold turkey and look forward to weekend
    where I have saved syns for them. I have upped the diet coke ad
    fruit. I eat tones of raspberries ad melon and kiwi and grapes to hand
    so I never feel deprived.

    I am just the same, I can do without everything synful except sweets! I have been having the sugar free sweets from Marks and Spencers - 5.5 syns for a packet which maybe has in 15 sweets? You can get butterscotch and strawberry and cream... I thought being sugar free they may be lacking in taste but they're not at all! But I warn you, they are addictive!!
