I buy the candy and always have some left... I guess I don't want to disappoint the lil kiddies, but I find myself always in a state of sugar shock for the month afterwards...

Anyone else have this issue?

Hello.

Only you can control what you put in your mouth. I understand how difficult it can be, but you can do it. I have started referring to anything I should not eat as "poison". For me, it is, and this tactic seems to be working.

Another thing that has helped is that we no longer celebrate Halloween. We do not buy candy or have outdoor lights on Halloween night. No one has come to our door for years.

If you still have candy, either give it all away or throw it out. Your health is worth more than a bag of candy.

Like Dave, I don't hand out treats. I turn off the lights and go to bed!!!

I do not celebrate Halloween. In our apt. complex they do not allow the children to go around from apt to apt so no need for bags of candy or turn the lights out either.

The new complex I moved into people leave candy in bowls outside their doors on the shelf for anyone to help themselves. Some people provide different kinds of candy all year round. I will not be doing that. I only took one piece from someone and I felt like I was stealing so it will not be happening again. It's there for the taking but I don't feel right about it.
I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.

My mother donates her left over candy to the church.

Where I live, it's either feast or famine with the children coming. Some years we run out and have to turn out the lights, other years get so few it's amazing. Then I ask hubby to take the leftover in to his office or else we donate it to a church.
