Bloody hell, I am!!!HUNGRY, HUNGRY, HUNGRY!!
Never used to get this hungry when I smoked……..
It’s not often now but every now and then, for 1-2 days, I feel like if I let myself then I would eat and eat and eat and I never seem to get full……..
I go to make toast and I am almost dribbling, even though I have eaten 10 mins before or had my dinner half an hour ago?? Go figure……….and its just toast, we aren’t talking elaborate food, special chocolates or some gorgeous cheese…
I have become almost obsessed with food.You can imagine how I get in Paris (pastries,cheese and bread everywhere) or Italy (salame, cheese, bread)…..and Istanbul was exquisite torture. Mezze, Baklava, kunfa, Kebabs, oh the list was endless…Even Poland which on the face of it can look quite austere, isnt!! And don’t even get me started on here at home. I remember streets because of particular food shops.
So today, I go in search of the CHOCO-ADE biscuits that were re-released in NZ after a 20 year absence and NONE NONE NONE to be found!! Old mother Hubbard!! VERY distressing……….So i had to eat the 2nd most fav thingy , JAFFA CAKES………..
If I used to feel hungry when I smoked, well I would just have a smoke and you know, I never remember being that hungry or food making me salivate so much. Is this because I can taste it better since there is no smokes ‘blocking’ the true taste of the food?
I liked food, I always have but now I feel at times, it is almost bordering on obsessive. It’s not that I eat heaps, but i think about it and what I could make, and what I will make and then maybe what it will taste like……..Has Food taken the place of my smokes?
You know they say, we usually swap one addiction for another…………
What do you think?
