I am borderline addicted to eating Reese cups. I am extremely impulsive when it comes to candy. What's the best way to manage how much sweets I intake. What's a good alternative to eat instead?

Reese's : Shaquita - "pleasure shift" - find something else that replaces the joy of the Reese's. But make sure it is something healthy. This takes effort. For some it is getting a coffee or tea but find a replacement and eliminate the bad foods.
