How do I curb my sugar addiction? It's getting serious.

I am seriously, seriously addicted to sugar. I've always had a sweet tooth, but when I quit smoking about a year and a half ago, my consumption of anything and everything sugary went haywire. It's reached the point where I eat enough sugar that I end up feeling ill almost daily and I feel cravings as intense for sugary things as I remember feeling for cigarettes. I'm maybe on the high end of normal, but am not considerably overweight as I exercise a good amount and eat healthily otherwise.
I guess I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions as to how I can get this sugar issue in check, if the exercise is balancing the effects of the sugar consumption at all, and how much sugar is reasonable to have. I only buy fruit to have at home, and that helps, but there are plenty of bakeries near my apartment and always sugary crap in the break room at work - at least with cigarettes, I didn't have to walk by a dish of them in the room next to my office every day. :(
