Have you ever been at an event and someone is offered a drink and they refuse. Maybe they are the designated driver, maybe a recovering alcoholic. Majority of the time, they will be offered a soda or water instead. No big deal.
Now imagine that same person is offered a slice of a cake and says no thanks. What usually occurs? Why not? Its just one slice. Whats the big deal? Or a comment that says, your too thin anyhow, eat up.
People do not understand that sweets can be just as addicting as alcohol or other drugs. I know personally, if I am at a party and there is a bowl of cookies, I am ok if do not eat any, but if I have one, one will lead to two, two to five and five to 10. Then maybe a slice of cake or ice cream as well.
Does anyone else experience this?
