Why flour?

I understand why I should stop eating sugar – I’m completely convinced of the terrible effect it has on me (breakouts, cravings, weight gain, cavities…) and you’ve taught me about the effect it has on insulin which I didn’t know about.
However, I tend to resist the idea of not wanting flour. I feel it’s so much part of the French culture with bread (I make my own) that I’m not sure I could stop eating it forever. I feel I’m ready to give it a try but only for a short amount of time, until I reach my goal. Which means I’ll still want it and won’t be free around it.
So how can I see flour like sugar and stop wanting it?
Thank you!
