Coffee is not a craving for me it is an addiction I simply need it to function.

When I do crave a food or drink especially if it is a healthful one I usually satisfy it because I figure it is my system telling me it needs something.

I rarely crave sweets so I do usually satisfy that one too.

But avoiding the actual craving just means I eat more cos I try for something else and still end up with the thing I craved.

I refuse to put a lot of effort into a craving though so if it means I need to leave the house just to do that when I have perfectly good food/drink here, then, no I won't do that at all.
You have KFC there?!
And why the heck are you still awake.... or did you just leave the 'puter on?

squzie, when you see the time stamp on bilby's posts, just change the a.m. to p.m., and vice versa to calculate the time where she lives.

12 hours for you, 13 for me :)
expatgirl I can do that. I thought they were farther apart, but no wonder they're the only ones on (ok and you) at 2 am!!!

oh I know what I was thinking. I saw her still on when I posted..... which was 12 am her time. But she wasn't really there. She posted the KFC comment at 5 pm her time.

Ok I'm done scrambling my brain.

as far as cravings, I think it is good to give into them every now and again, or else you will just end up going overboard when you DO finally give in.

if it`s a Genuine Craving, then yes always, if it`s a fancy (would really really like) then no.
