I’m a chocoholic and I blame my addiction on my dear uncle Angelo who was a foreman for Nestle chocolate. Every Christmas and birthdays...till I was about 10 yrs old... he would bring me a case (24 bars) of Kit Kat bars, which I would devour in a few days. Nowadays, I’m into the more expensive chocolate…if it’s not 70% cocoa and dark chocolate (no milk chocolate for 0’s), I don’t touch it. Like all addictions, you’re always craving the better stuff. I’ve tried to control my cravings due to the fact that I find sugar in any form increases my stress and adrenaline levels (already high for type O’s)...which tends to wear me down and I usually get a cold sore to boot. I have one as we speak and I’m not happy about it because it is the first in many years. My chocolate consumption since the early part of the Christmas season has been on an all time 5 year high and I need to cut down.
All you Roman Catholics out there know that Lent started this week on Wednesday and I have decided to forgo the chocolate for 46 days in observation (I’m not a devout Catholic but what the hell…. I need all the help I can get).
For the rest of you out there...Catholic and non-Catholics alike... maybe this is a good time to completely give up some of those BTD avoid foods for 46 days and see how you feel when Easter finally comes around.... it just might resurrect a new and improved you!!
