    Smile snacks/ junk foods/junkies

    Eric stopped buying snacks/junk foods/junkies for a month in order to save money.



    Do all of the three underlined in the above come across as the same referents? What are other equivalents? Thanks.

    "Junkies" is generally understood to be drug addicts.

    The other two are ok; "fast food" is another alternative.
