    Before you started this challenge, did you think you were 'addicted' to sugar? How do you feel now?

    Avoiding sugar is difficult.  I find I can do it for a day pretty easily, but days 2-5 are very hard.  Then when it becomes routine, it seems easy again, until I cave in and have sugar, then it's totally back to square 1!
