I Don't Know How To Control ItPeople get addicted to all kinds of different things and out of all those things I got addicted to chips. Yes, as in, I have to eat some regularly so I don't go crazy. I have another friend who went through the same thing, except she couldn't stop eating chips AND drinking soda all the time - if she didn't eat/drink it for too long she would be very irritable, quite angry, her hands got shaky and so on. Fortunately for her she has managed to give up on them.
I, on the other hand, am not THAT addicted, because I manage to exert a little bit of control over it, but still less than what I'd want. Now, see, I'm not fat, I have a healthy weight for my age and height and I want to maintain that, but it is very difficult to do so when I feel a craving for chips so often. I feel like I NEED to eat a bag of chips weekly to stay sane. It's been like this for a year now. There was a time when I ate a bag of chips almost every day, but then for a while I decided to give up on them - until I couldn't take it anymore and just had to have some chips. Now I do my best to not eat more than 160 grams of chips weekly, though even that amount is too much. That means just one bag of chips per week.
Still it scares how hard it is to resist. I don't know what they put on those chips, but I know I'm not the only eat who has trouble staying away from them. Sometimes I find myself walking to the store in zombie mode just so I can get some chips if I haven't eaten some in over a week. I once got food poisoning because of chips and my parents have asked me to stop eating them, so now I have to hide my habit from them. I don't even know how I got into this situation... alas, it could be a lot worse.
