Am I Becoming A Chocoholic ?
« on: 07/02/2009 22:46:21 »
Dearest Chocoholicologists,

I am wondering if I am becoming a chocoholic !

Ewe see, up until three weeks ago, I never really was that bothered about choccy, and when I was, it had to be the milky stuff !

THEN, something happened, a revelation maybe.....and now look at this.





The third bar was finished yesterday !..it's been disposed of..I have polished off three bars of the heavy duty 85% stuff in three days/nights !!...and I really want some more !!


Am I addicted ?..How could I go from loathing the choc to luffing the choc ?
.. I am sure I read somewhere that the dark stuff is actuially good for ewe....is that true ?...but can there really be an addictive quaity to the choc !

Help me ...(send me some choc ..........from the dark side !)





Neil
Cold Turkey From No Choc ?..I'll Let Ewe know

Chocolate releases feel good chemicals in your brain (endorphins) ... you are now eating the Rolls Royce of chocolate (ok not the best of the best, but pretty good for mass consumers) you are experiencing cocoa euphoria... enjoy!





make sure you also eat lots of fruit to counteract the evacuation changes that will also be occurring.

Cocoa euphoria! don't you get that from watching clowns?

Choccy is addictive as the pleasure it causes in your brain must be repeated. I think I'm addicted to cheese and onion crisps, is that possible too?

THANK EWE JNA

The other bar was Green & Black and it was tres delish !

Well, I can't say I am having ' cold turkey' but the craving is there. Not enough for me to physically go out especially and buy a bar or eight....but if  a bar was here I would eat it !!..Yummy !

Hmmm...coco euphoria !!...I like that !...

yes, I already eat lots of fruit. Does choccy have a ' constipationinal' effect then ?

Of course, I have to watch my new trim figure too !  :)

I can certainly vouch for an addiction to crisps because wifeys weakeness is salt 'n' vinegar !...and she luffs those new fish 'n' chips flavoured ones too !!

apparently you have to eat dozens of bars in one sitting to be aware of the euphoric effects.. but even small amounts would produce the chemical.. subtle effects.


I don't blame you for not going out in the brrrr weather just for chocolate. See if your neighbour has some to steal.. erm  borrow.

But that might take a while if it does indeed induce constipational effects?!  :-\
