Sugar Addiction Quiz

Just about every addiction has its handy questionnaire that you will likely lie on the first time through. An astronaut’s wife took a similar alcoholism quiz in Cosmopolitan and when she finally stopped lying, she checked herself into rehab. In the HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon, the actress playing this woman depicted her as taking the quiz with a double rum and cola or other similar drink in hand.
