Are you Addicted

Lizzann_ArOctober 29, 2012

well, maybe not addicted but can't seem to get enough of a certain junk food? I'm there now with Extreme Pringles and of course you gotta have a coke to wash it down with.

I was just recently introduced to Munchos potato crisps by my mother in law! I had never in all my years never had Munchos. I am now addicted to them. And I was having a hard time finding them, seems I am not the only one that is addicted!

I go by spells though, I will latch onto something (like the Munchos) and just can't get enough, then suddenly it's over run it's course. At one point in my life when I was young I was addicted to sweet tarts I ate so many it was affecting me because they contain a lot of acidic ingredients. I do still like them but rarely ever have any these days.

My husband is addicted to coffee he drinks it all day long.

No....I don't keep junk food in the house and I rarely go to fast food places.
I am at high risk for strokes and heart disease and I need to keep myself healthy so I can enjoy my grandchildren and so DH and I can travel.

I just stick to chocolate! Must be good for you, LOL, it's made from beans, and beans are vegetables! :)

No, I can't think of any junk food I'm addicted to. Amazing since I'm FAT...LOL I also don't have junk food in the house, well, some Lays chips for my husbands lunch I pack for him every day. But I don't eat them. I am addicted to coffee though, just love my coffee.

I'm addicted to Pepsi....used to be Coca Cola. I just recently quit taking pain pills for 5 years...due to my bad knees. I went through a week of withdrawal and a month of lethargy. I quit sodas at the same time. I have no desire to ever take another pill, but I went back to the Pepsi after about five days. I told someone, you could put a bottle of narcotic pills, a baggie of weed, a bottle of liquor, and a bottle of Pepsi on a table in front of me. The only one I would have a hard time resisting would be the Pepsi. :(

Bigack, same here with the Diet 7Up. Sometimes our grocery stores will have buy one get one free on Diet 7Up and I stock up on them. Someone mentioned on the baloney thread last week about it being fried. I tried that, on toast with a little mayo and a slice of tomato. Oh my goodness, I'm addicted! Have one every day now along with my Diet 7Up.

Unsweetened iced tea, I sweeten it with Sweet and Low. That is my weakness, if it is a good iced tea.

I was addicted to fast food having it 2-3X's a week, one reason I became vegetarian~~now I only get a bean burrito from Del Taco or veggie tacos at Bakers once in awhile. Gave up soda years and years ago. Slowly giving up chips a big addiction for me;(

My biggest addiction that is like drugs to me is sugar!! I am about 8 weeks off sugar~WHEW it is not easy. Been to a few b-day parties served cake to people and was not even tempted~~IF I have none at all I am fine, I am afraid one bite will set me back weeks;(

I do like my cuppa (tea w/sugar) and a cookie or piece of chocolate around 3 p.m. every day.

I was addicted to cigarettes and didn't even know it until I quit in 1971! I'd thought because I 'only' smoked three or four a day that it wasn't *serious*. Hah!

I almost never venture down the grocery store aisle where the soda and snacks fill the shelves. If we don't have 'em, we can't eat or drink 'em.

My down fall is any type of chewy candy or chocolate but I try buy it only once a month, Sometimes I can go longer without it.

One of my favourite candy is Bit O' Honey but only recently you can find it in a vintage candy store and it costs too much for a small bar. My sister is in St. Louis now and she bought me some last year so I told her to look out for some again this year. I thought maybe it might be in stores in the US for Halloween. When we were kids my Dad always brought it home for us.

I was definitely addicted to soda and I gave it up in June. I had one sip of my boyfriend's the other night and it was so sweet I could hardly stand it. So glad I'm off of it.

I don't really keep junk food in the house, but I would say the snack food I'm most addicted to is dill pickle flavored sunflower seeds. I can't remember who makes them but they are GOOD!

I drink about 3/4s of a pepsi every day, it's hard to let go of.

My 'addiction' beginning next month will be Starbucks eggnog lattes for the few seasonal weeks a year those are available. DH meets his friends for coffee on Sat and Sun mornings early and he'll bring one home to me when returning.

My only other food I miss like crazy if I don't have it regularly is Mexican food - We'll go to our favorite restaurant about once a week. Most of the week I'm pretty good but I do indulge in a less than heart healthy meal on weekends.

Candy, sweets, aren't that tempting to me. Savory or salty my biggest vices.

Just my nonfat lattes that I make twice daily. I gave up diet Coke this past year. First I quit buying it in the grocery store and now I don't order it when I eat out. I prefer raspberry iced tea instead when I eat out.

If I were to just be able to eat any old food and not get "fat" and sick I would eat potato chips, french fries and chips and salsa. Love all those!

Put me in the same camp as Arkansas Girl. I love all those!
I don't have a sweet tooth at all.

Salty tooth? For sure!

Starbucks Caramel Frapp 4x per week. I have it with non fat milk/ no whip so at least I am trying to be somewhat healthy :) I don't drink soda, only water or tea.

Right now I am munching on Olive oil kettle cooked potato chips (tuscan herb and garlic). They are soooo good.

While I haven't had them in a few years because I can down a bag by myself, I LOVE cheese curls. That's why I stay away from them. But, lately my DH has been buying Jalapeo Cheese Nips and they are quite addicting. I might as well be eating the curls.

Just lately; Famous Amos Chocolate Chip/Pecan cookies. They're small, so if I could stop at 2 or 3, I'd be ok. But 1/2 a box??? Not so good!

Coffee and dark chocolate. Oh but those are both food groups so I don't have to call them addictions. Do I?

Besides my love for peanut butter~

Mayonnaise on saltine crackers! Nothing else.

Mayonnaise on a slice of fruit cake!

Mayonnaise on vanilla wafers!

Used to love mayonnaise on baked beans!

Spoon of mayo and peanut butter together is outstanding :o)

I have never bought a jar of mayonnaise in my life. Ewwww.
I love cherries, and the season is over and I have to wait at least nine months. I also am addicted to tomatoes, but won't eat store bought. So another nine month wait.

Cheri, congratulations on you 60# weight loss--way to go!!

I am def a coffee addict. Saturday I couldn't figure out why I had a headache that wouldn't go away, even after ibuprofen. I had it all day long. Turns out my husband made the morning coffee with some decaf that our German guests had brought us as a gift. The writing was in German, so he didn't know it was decaf! What an eye opener, I really need my caffeine.

About the closest I can come on this would be a GOOD burger and fries. Good quality meat on a toasted bun with hot, crisp fries. But I'd hardly call that junk food. So I guess in the end, the answer is no.

I'm pretty darn fond of GOOD vanilla ice cream. Haagen Daz or homemade.
