Sweet Temptation

“I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it” Mae West

Do you love sweets?

Who doesn’t enjoy sweets?

However, some folks hate sweets.

They may dislike sweets due to their diabetes or by nature.

You can add me to the list of people who avoid sweets at all costs.

I don’t hate sweets and I don’t consume sweets.

I’m not sure what the reason is.

Do you consider ‘temptation’ as a human weakness?


It’s an inborn error.

“Temptations are as thick as the leaves of the forest, and no one can be out of the reach of temptation unless he is dead”

Robert G Ingersoll

Why it’s difficult to control temptation?

“There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable”

Mark Twain

Mark Twain’s secret formula

“I deal with temptation by yielding to it”

The three sins of temptation

  1. Lust of the flesh
  2. Lust of the eyes
  3. Pride of life

Most dangerous temptations

Money, forbidden sex, envy, over eating and substances of abuse. (according to me)

Do you like to add to the list?


“Good habits result from resisting temptations” Ancient proverb

  1. Temptation is a part of human nature, and it can be difficult to resist. Everyone has their own triggers and weaknesses when it comes to temptation, whether it be sweets, money, or forbidden experiences. The key is to be aware of these temptations and to develop strategies to resist them.
