Sugar Addiction: Find the Humor in Your Habit, Thanks to

I’m a big fan of relying on your sense of humor to get a proper perspective on your sugar habit.

In fact, I heartily encourage my private clients and members of my Break Free With Connie programs to laugh at their sugar addiction, which could pave the way to type 2 diabetes and hypoglycemia.

Chuckling and chortling about your unhealthy attachment to sweets and culprit carbs is a valuable part of the process of letting go.

My creative colleague Mike Adams of has a similar mindset about the importance of humor. Check out the clever cartoon about sugar addiction that he conceived, and which artist Dan Berger drew.

In case you’re in the dark, this cartoon is a funny take on some research, which reveals that rats, when given the option of drinking sugar water, went completely overboard in their attraction to the sweet substance. (We humans are very much like these sugar-crazed rodents.)

You can learn about this research in my book SUGAR SHOCK! in a chapter entitled, "Proof Pours In: New Studies Show That You Can Become Dependent on Sweets."

Many thanks to, which also features many other humorous cartoons.


Sugar was once my go-to "drug." Now, I'm an ex-sugar-addicted journalist. ALL 44 of my baffling ailments vanished after I reluctantly kicked the sweet stuff and quickie carbs in 1998. Now, I’m author of the expose, Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012), which gives you a simple, proven plan to kick sweets. My next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™ -- which I'm now completing -- will give you easy, tested tools to squash your cravings for sugar, salt and fatty foods. I’m also a motivational speaker, certified life coach, certified health coach, media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm also organizer for the upcoming Sugar World Summit.
