random question....
Do any of you have a craving for sweets since quiting pills? Cause I do :/ I never ate them much before and  now I cannot seem to get enough .... If you did will this go away because I need to lose weight not be gaining any more, and speaking of weight gain do any of you find it harder to lose since stopping?

Many have a sweet tooth after they clean up.  It should subside at some point.  I thought dropping weight was easier once i cleaned up as i took care of my body.

Yes! I found my appetite in general pretty soon after stopping the Tramadol. And sweets were at the top if the list, followed by mandarin chicken from the Chinese restaurant. I had no appetite on Tramadol. I had to force myself to eat and food tasted like cardboard. I'm happy to get to enjoy food again but I've gained five pounds at least. I'm ok with that, I was a bit gaunt. But I'm ready to stop now!

Same with me...no appetite while on Tamadol, and could never eat anything sweet.  Now I absolutely crave sugar and chocolate....those darn chocolate Easter eggs are calling my name all the time.  I've gained almost 10 pounds since quitting in just 6 weeks!), so I've got to start controlling my cravings, but I thought it's better to do things one step at a time...and cutting myself some slack until I have 3 months under my belt of no Tramadol.  I've got to get more active too...should help get rid if the extra lbs.

Ooo that's all i want, Is sweets...Not just candy but also sweet drinks, alot more pop ...oo and Orange juice, That has become my new addiction hahah

I went through it last time i detoxed to, it does go away (or did for me after about a month)
This time i've been craving them not as bad as last time though. But this time i've been way more hungry and eating way larger portions, last time i detoxed i actually lost like 10 pds after quitting this time i think i've already gained amost 10 just in the past week hahah

OMG yes!!!  It set in for me about a month after my c/t - and it was holiday time.  No shortage of cookies, cake, you name it.  And - my daughter is a pastry chef so ofcorse we had to be her "test subjects"!!!  It did seem to fade away after a few weeks .. . . :)

Good luck and congrats on your clean time!

well ....they say there is "growth" in recovery.I guess this is what they mean.
I quit all refined sugar products at the beginning of the year and it had really helped my mood,as excessive sugar is really not good for the body and mind.I was using it to feel better temporarily and saw what I was doing.We can easily switch addictions and depending on how old we are and our health,our diet and lack of exercise and other bad habits can kill us just as the opiates were
