How do I kick a sugar addiction?

It's genetic, my mom's side has always had huge issues as well. But for me, it feels like I'll never be well.

There are times where I'll practically black out, standing over an empty package of cookies. If there is no sweets, I'll throw anything together to make some quick dessert. White sugar is not a natural substance, it's built to be addictive. Has anyone else successfully overcome this? I also struggle with binge eating, but the sugar scares me as I've become pre-diabetic; but I can't seem to stop. It's like I have no control.

I've smoked, drank, done drugs; and stopped them without much thought or care. I've even been prescribed narcotics, but I don't have an issue. The only thing this addictive for me is sugar, and maybe pornography. (While the latter is an infrequent issue, when I feel the urge I have equally little control over it.) I don't think I'm an addictive personality; but I am a dangerously impulsive one.
