does anyone else depend on gum and sucking candies to get them through the day? no one in my life even chews gum!
i've always loved candy, but i really upped the ante when i dug in hard to an eating disordered life and my dependence on little oral satisfaction went thru the roof.
i've got everything laid out in my bedroom -- lemon drops, root beer barrels, coffee nips, lifesavers, creme savers. and the gum -- if i'm out of gum, it's like a junkie without smack. thank god for all night drugstores.
most people notice that there's usually something in my mouth. often, i mindlessly shove in piece after piece of doublemint spearmint until there's a baseball-sized wad in my mouth.
i'd like to stop this constant suckling, and there are days when i utilize fewer but in a way, this is the last frontier.
