We all know the pain of a bitter sweet tooth, but if your father is an alcoholic, your pain will likely be even worse.
As Dr. David Storck, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, told Dr. Phil, “A family member is like a big candy bar, so if they’re not sweet enough to be a sweet tooth in their own family, they’re gonna be a bitter tooth in your own family.”
Dr. Storke, a family psychiatrist and the author of The Bitter Truth About Drinking, told The New York Times that there are three types of sweet tooth: bitter, sweet, and tinged.
A bitter sweet-toothed person may have difficulty understanding that sugar is not the reason why a drink is bitter.
And a sweet-toned person may find it hard to tolerate bitter tastes.
Dr. Storeck explained that bitter sweet teeth, on the other hand, are a lot more common.
“Bitter sweet-Toothed people are less likely to tolerate sweetness,” he said.
“They may have trouble getting through a sweet dessert.”
The sweet tooth can have an impact on the entire family, and is often linked to obesity, depression, and suicidal thoughts.
As the National Institute of Mental Health says, “Beverages that contain sugar, such as fruit juices, are not recommended for children younger than 6 years of age.
These drinks contain high levels of sugar and a high proportion of added calories.”
So how can you stop a bitter taste from taking over your life?
Dr. Mark L. Ressler, a professor of psychology at the University of Southern California, told Psychology Today, “You have to stop thinking about how sweet you feel.
And you have to start thinking about what it is that is bad about your life, not just what it means to be bitter.”
So it’s really important to think about how bitter you feel and the things you’ve learned from it. “
The way that bitterness affects people is that they’re so deeply invested in that bitterness.
You have to really make the effort to change it.””
Then, you need to try to find ways to get rid of it.
You have to really make the effort to change it.”
