Pronunciation: shunk-ee

Sentence: Jim is such a shunkie.....he starts getting squirrelly about 10:00 am and climbs the walls till he gets a donut or candy bar. Then he eats 3 or 4 and starts crashing about 2:00. He's fortunate his metabolism is so high.

Etymology: junkie: technically slang for anyone who has an addiction to opiates usually but loosely applied to addiction to other substances as well. i.e. He's a sugar junkie. "Shunkie" is a fusion of those two words, "sugar" and "junkie"
