I Love Chocolate. Do You?
I have a confession to make.
My name is Ian and I am a chocoholic.
When I go shopping to the supermarket there are small imaginary beings who live behind the chocolate shelves and push boxes of chocolates and chocolate bars into my trolley. Does this happen to you?
Some days I can go all day without eating any chocolate and go to bed feeling very virtuous. Then at 3am or so I will get out of bed, half asleep, and roam the house in search of chocolate. This urge is incredibly strong. Do you do this?
When I visit other people I find myself looking around their homes for chocolate so I often keep a stash in my pocket for emergencies – especially for stressful situations. Do you?
Eating chocolate causes a chocolate high – a very wonderful feeling. But when it is over the low I experience can sometimes make you very sleepy. Are you the same?
I am a little bit overweight so if I lose 2 pounds I am happy and celebrate by eating some chocolate so that my weight graph is constantly horizontal. Is yours the same?
I know there are organisations (like Chocoholics Anonymous) to help me deal with my problem but I do not have the courage to pick up the phone or post on a site. Have you tried this?
If anyone has answered ‘yes’ to any of my questions I would love to hear from you. Any suggestions for cutting down on my chocolate consumption would be gratefully received.
But it has to be noted that I have absolutely NO INTENTION of giving it up completely – who could!?
