What is the difference between snorting cocaine and binging on doughnuts?
To your body, not much.
According to the most recent scientific studies, sugar is more addictive than cocaine. In fact, when given both sugar water and cocaine, lab rats choose sugar water over cocaine every time.
So, why is that we look down on drug users, people with eating disorders, alcoholics, cutters, etc. but food addicts are given a pass?
Is it so bad that Ariana Grande licked a few doughnuts to make a point?
Yeah, that’s pretty bad.
But the fact still remains that obesity is at an all-time high and it’s taking out more people than ever before. Your vice may be top-shelf vodka. Hers may be nose candy. And mine may be chocolate bars. Does my addiction make me better than you? Is my vice better than yours?
Considering that they all lead to the same place, the grave, I don’t think so.
You keep getting drunk every night, end up with liver disease and die of a brain aneurysm.
She keeps snorting cocaine and dies of an overdose.
I keep eating refined sugars and trans fat, get diabetes and heart disease, and die of a heart attack and with a few amputated limbs.
We are all addicts. And one addiction is not better than the other. They are all addictions. They all kill.
We all need to wake up, get clean, and move on.
Until next time pretty girl!
