EFT Tapping To Help You Overcome Sugar Addiction

EFT Tapping To Help You Overcome Sugar Addiction

How To Get Rid Of sugar addiction With EFT

Do you frequently have a sweet tooth? Do your cravings and current mood reflect each other?

Even though everyone occasionally enjoys sweets, sugar addiction can be dangerous. This is due to the direct relationship between sugar cravings and stress hormones.

Your body desires more sugar when you are worried because you need more energy, and sugar is a quick go-to fix for most of us. However, if you can control your stress levels, your cravings will go away on their own and you will not be tempted to reach for anything sweet.

In order to address the root causes of stress and break the addiction, EFT Tapping can be an incredibly helpful therapy.

Mridula Nair, founder of Redesigned Thinking,  used to be addicted to sugar and had a constant sweet and chocolate craving. She was never successful in finding a long-term cure for her addiction.

Mridula then learned about EFT Tapping and decided to give it a try to see if it would reduce her sugar cravings. She was aware that her issue was ingrained and that her desires were a reflection of the more serious problems that she was experiencing.

After using EFT, she realised that her unresolved feelings of abandonment and loneliness—which led to feelings of wrath, guilt, humiliation, and fear—were the main source of her cravings.

She was able to successfully address all of these suppressed feelings using EFT, which allowed her to free herself from her stress and sugar addiction. Thankfully, as soon as she was able to deal with her emotional problems, the cravings disappeared.

Sugar Addiction Ended

 “I used to crave sweets all the time. I had tried various methods to overcome this and it only worked for some time. It was with EFT that I began to work through the layers.”

After experiencing the change in herself, Mridula Nair went on to become a certified EFT Practitioner.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT): EFT Tapping to overcome Sugar Addiction

Step 1:

First, Use EFT Tapping On What It Feels Like To Feel The Cravings

Explore the physical sensations in the body associated with cravings and use the physical tension tapping process to reduce the sensations.

Then use the EFT Tapping Points Process taught in detail during the EFT Practitioner Training. 


To get started, begin by investigating the physical nature of cravings. 

Connect with the cravings and notice where you feel them in the body. Then use the EFT Tapping for Physical Tension taught in detail during the EFT Practitioner Training to clear the surface feelings and feel calmer. 

Briefly, you can begin by asking yourself the following questions to explore further:

  • Where in the body do you experience the cravings?
  • What is the colour, texture, size, shape of the cravings in the body?
  • What are the sensations like? For example, rough or smooth.


Then measure the level of Addiction by asking: 

"What number is the craving at, where 10 is really high and 1 is not high at all." Just go with whatever comes up spontaneously, without thinking too much about it. 


Begin by Tapping on the Karate Chop or Side of the Hand EFT Tapping Points: 

"Even though I feel the craving to eat sweets and I feel it in my mouth and it's at a number 6 and it's red in colour and it feels smooth, I deeply and completely love and accept myself." (Repeat 3 times).


Then Tap on the facial and upper body EFT Tapping Points using these phrases:

  • Eyebrow: This craving...
  • side Of the Eye: So much craving...
  • Under the eye: Craving in my mouth...
  • Under the nose: It's a red colour...
  • Chin: At a number 6...
  • Collarbone: So smooth...
  • Under the arm: This craving...
  • Thumb: I feel it in my mouth...
  • Index Finger: So tempting...
  • Middle Finger: Really tempting...
  • Little Finger: The colour red...


Close the sequence by coming back to the EFT Karate Chop Tapping Points and repeat once: 

"Even though I feel the craving to eat sweets and I feel it in my mouth and it's at a number 6 and it's red in colour and it feels smooth, I deeply and completely love and accept myself."



Take a gentle breath in and out and take a sip of water.



At the end of the EFT Tapping, you can ask yourself the following questions:

  • What number is the addiction on now?
  • What happened?
  • How does it make you feel?

You can repeat this process by going back to Step 1 if you feel like the number could come down a little more.

Step 2:

Then Discover Past Experiences Of Feeling  Addicted And Clear Them 

Explore memories related to the physical tension and use the Tell the Story & the Movie Technique to clear it. 

To uncover the memories linked to cravings, you can ask questions like:

  • When have you felt these sensations before?
  • What do these sensations remind you of?
  • When did the sensations start? What happened?
  • Was there ever a time when you did not experience these symptoms?
  • What can trigger and bring on the symptoms?

Identify past events linked to the feeling of craving and resolve it with the help of tapping therapy.

You can ask the following questions:

  • When have you felt addicted to something before?
  • What happens to trigger it?
  • Who or what triggers it?

These questions will identify your past experiences associated with addiction. 

Step 3:

Explore Any Limiting Beliefs That Prevented You From overcoming Your Addiction

Limiting beliefs are thoughts that can be conscious or unconscious and can end up becoming responsible for self-sabotage, procrastination and low self-esteem, in an individual.

For cravings, first, uncover the limiting beliefs which can either be at the surface level or associated with the deeper root memories. Then shift them from stressful to empowering. For example, 

  •  “Something bad is going to happen” to “Everything is going to be OK"
  • "It not safe" to "I am safe now"

Step 4:

Close With Positive EFT Tapping to overcome Sugar Addiction

Examples of a positive tapping sequence might be:

  • “Even though I felt tempted, now, I am open to feeling confident about overcoming the cravings.”
  • “Even though I had these cravings, now, I open myself to the possibility of having no cravings and being healthy."
