Why You Are Different
If you are a sugar addict, you can't "just say no" to ice cream, candy, soda, chocolate, or cookies. If you are a sugar addict, people have been saying "watch your calories," "exercise more," "clean up your room," "stop snacking on cookies," "stop drinking," "stop smoking," or "why don't you just ______" to you nearly all your life. You fill in the blank. The message is the same, although the content may vary.
