Controlling your urge, unless you are suffering from some medical condition, can make you sick. We feel thirst because our body needs water for proper functioning. But keep one thing in mind that too much of anything is harmful. Even drinking too much water can cause water poisoning. So don't abstain yourself from eating sugar, but don't eat that too much.
If you are fond of eating something sweet then keep it in limit and take care of total carbohydrate intake and do some physical workout on regular basis.

Does exercising helps if i am fond of eating sweets ?
Yes, it definitely does. But most people don't do it regularly. Exercising can burn the extra calories that you intake in the form of sweetened food. Exercising keeps your weight in control, which is necessary to stay away from diabetes. Just keep monitoring you weight weekly. If you weight is increasing then it is something to worry.
