I think I am addicted to sugar as well, and it took a few days to get rid of those cravings. In the past I learned that giving in to the craving (having a little treat) just brought the cravings on more. If I am eating low carb and no sugary treats, voila! no cravings. But it takes a few days (maybe a week) for the withdrawal.

One thing I think is really impt is to be able to distinguish between hunger and cravings.

Also I find that a cup of green tea helps me when I feel like snacking. It seems to take that snacking urge away.
