Chunk of Chocolate Rehab: Never stop chocolate addiction?
Really! Never say never!!
I never at times thoughts I could ever heal my chocolate addiction esp when I started out in 2004…
I never felt I could ever love myself more than chocolate… as it had at times been like my best friend… and my main coping mechanism… for most of my life…
I never felt that I could heal my broken heart…
I never felt that I could ever be ready to meet the man of my dreams… I had no faith in that happening….
I never felt that I would ever love myself to think and feel that I was ever enough…
I never considered that I could walk past a shop selling chocolate without buying any….
I never dreamed I would be able to refuse chocolate..
It has happened and much much more and I'd love to help you do the same!
Chunk by chunk by chunk by chunk you can blast the 'never's,' out of your life for good when you take your chocolate addiction seriously and learn to heal your addiction to chocolate one chunk at a time!

Chunk of Chocolate Rehab: "What you resist, persists."
The trouble with an addiction to chocolate, is that
it can seem like it
is not that much..
'cos it's cheap
'cos no-one takes it seriously..
not even yourself..
and it often goes unnoticed ..
by yourself and
the emotional eating.. that
happens when you
eating it and ignoring your
feelings can just keep on
something happens, and you get so mad or so very sad…
and then you can resort to
eating A LOT more chocolate..
before you announce to the world…
I no longer want this to continue..
I want to face my chocolate addiction finally and
deal with why I am so addicted to it and
deal with those feelings that I have
been numbing and suppressing through eating
so much of it..
you know the ones.. not just
those feelings that you have in the middle of the night ..
but first thing in the morning..
in the afternoon..
well you know ANYTIME!!…
that you would rather not face…
Those are what I am talking about!!
I understand, as that was what happened to me…
in early 2004, heartbroken from a romance that went
horribly wrong, I just started to face my chocolate addiction..
it wasn't pretty..
it was hugely painful..
and something I would rather not repeat.. truth be told..
there was a place deep inside of me that was craving deep love and acceptance..
from well anyone… anyone who would give it to me…
apart from myself..
Even though I was a Life Coach at the time..
I did not really love myself.. hardly at all.
I had a self-hatred campaign running in my insides 24/7…
So I had just kept on eating chocolate ti contain these feelings..
Eventually it has to come out.. the truth..
and that was the time for me.
when I could avoid the pain inside of me…
I just surrendered…
Got support and started..
my process.. of learning to
love myself more than chocolate…
Truth be told just
liking myself at first instead of hating myself.
was a HUGE leap !!
It happened though.. maybe not overnight.
Today, I deeply love and accept myself!
Not 24/7, but at least 80% of the time which
as far as I am concerned is a miracle given where I started..
loathing myself 24/7!!!
Are you looking for this?
You can, you so can.
Learn from someone who has done it and who lives and breathes
I will be starting my Chocoholics Anonymous group. this month,
details will be annouced shortly, to be on my list for this email me with the subject heading: CA I'm in Carrie!,"
And I will add you to my exclusive list.
I trust that helps you realise that until you admit you are addicted to chocolate and then
decide to do something about it nothing
absolutely nothing changes..
as what you resist.. truly persists!
Love Carrie xx
Chunk of Chocolate Rehab:" Never let a stumble in the road be the end of the journey."
Are you struggling with your chocolate addiction?
Are you finding it very hard to stop binge eating chocolate?
Are you feeling it nearly impossible to stop eating it?
To be honest, this is normal and absolutely okay when you are addicted to chocolate.
I understand as I used to be you, so I really know how you feel.
During my Chocolate Rehab Programme, I explain, at the heart of it
what do to when you are feeling like giving up even trying to heal your chocolate addiction.
This happened to me many, many times.
It's very hard though when you are trying hard to heal something
like this, and it can be very lonely!
I understand this too.
It can be very isolating, as not many people
or take this addiction seriously…
I get it!
For me, this has been a real big reason
why I kept on with finishing writing my book
so that I could heal my own
addiction and actually then help a lot of others like you!
Really, this process of healing your
chocolate addiction one chunk at a time is a daily process
it is something that happens to you
each day. something that you
work on daily.
it is not something that happens as a one-off process.
And you will fail, you will feel like a stumble in the road
is the end of the journey you will
So many of us go through this. and we want to give up!
This is okay and totally natural!
I did this so many times.
When I got re-triggered and got back into binge cycles and found
it very hard to stop!
But the point of Chocolate Rehab
is that it is about learning to love yourself
NO MATTER how much chocolate you have just eaten
or just even EATING right in this moment…
When you learn to love yourself no matter how
much chocolate you are eating or have just eaten, then you will be able to
keep on picking yourself from
ANY stumbles in the road..
and start to heal your addiction to chocolate
one chunk at a time!
My process is not at all anti-chocolate!
It is just about balancing out your relationship with chocolate and
learning to love yourself more,
and learning to love yourself
Chunk of Chocolate Rehab: Place your hand on your
heart and say: " I love and accept you now,:
Say this x 3, ideally in front of a mirror and you
will likely feel a bit strange
to begin with but it will get easier!
The first time I did this I literally cried, as I did not
love myself at all, I hated myself..
Today it is so much easier, and whilst
I do not love myself 24/7, I so much better than
I have ever been i.e. no self-loathing!!
Try it and let me know how
you get on!
I trust that happens,
Love Carrie x

Chunk of Chocolate Rehab: " Stay patient and trust the journey."
It's not always easy to keep going when you are trying to heal a chocolate addiction! It can be that one day you are feeling great and able to get help and support to deal with your emotions as they come up and on other days you are find that the only solution to get through the day is with chocolate. Do not feel bad or ashamed, this one chunk forward and two back, is just part of the process. It is better to just expect that you will fail your way through than try too hard and expect it to be perfect all the way!
The thing about healing any kind of addiction, such a chocolate is that as you start to unwrap each chunk of your addiction you might find that some are more difficult than others and you could need extra help and support , and that is not bad thing or nothing to be ashamed about at all!
My suggestions is just no matter what happens, even after a chocolate binge, just keep going, be gentle on yourself and do not allow yourself to stay too long in guilt, as that just serves to keep you stuck and feeling worse and worse. If you are feeling shame about a chocolate binge, or almost non-stop chocolate eating, just own it, and feel it, and let it go, and just start again. Love and accept yourself, no matter how much chocolate you are eating or have just eating, be patient and just trust the journey and keep on going!
Let me now how you get on, here or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Dearest Chocoholic, Chunk of Chocolate Rehab:
"It's hard to change when you are too busy making excuses. " Scott Stabile. Okay, is this you?
Are you always talking about how you are finally ready to heal your chocolate addiction,
but just keep on avoiding doing something about it?
Are you scared it will be too hard, or that it will never happen?
I used to feel like that especially when I first started to look into healing my own chocolate addiction,
it was an utter nightmare!
So, hard, no-one took chocolate addiction seriously apart from just on a nutritional level,
or the hypnotherapists-
and as wonderful as these things are I knew deep down it was
only part of the healing puzzle.
I always knew that to heal my chocolate addiction
I needed to look at it holistically, or it would not last!!
It took me ages, to unwrap my addiction to chocolate
. thankfully because I have done this, and I used to actually wake
up to wrappers under my pillow…
You do not need to take the many months it took me !
You cannot though rush this process of healing your chocolate addiction,
as you have to get really deep and get to know how you are feeling
and this can be utterly scary for many,
as they wear such a mask. I am not going to lie,
it was scary and can be scary,
but the more you practice being emotionally honest with yourself the easier it becomes.
It will be hard but will be utterly worth it !
By taking time to get to know yourself on a deeper level,
and look at loving yourself more than chocolate you will be
giving yourself the biggest gift you could ever give yourself!
The gift of learning to deeply love and appreciate yourself more than chocolate,
well more than anything,
as you are the most important person in your life,
surely that is worth you investing some time,

Chunk of Chocolate Rehab:" My only regret in life is that while I was there for everyone else, I forgot to be there for me. " Cheryl Richardson _ ( I Love her!! Thanks Cheryl smile emoticon )
MM. this is quite interesting hey.. many of you here I am sure are able to rescue and support and be there for others and avoid doing that very thing for you!! I see this a lot; especially from women to be honest!
I am not suggesting to not be there and help and support others, at all, it's the biggest gift you can ever give anyone in life, your time, your care and your loving attention. What is not healthy is that when you do this at the expense of doing it for yourself!!!!
How on earth do I start to do this Carrie?
Well, just by carving out a bit of time daily, yep I did write DAILY!
Even if just ten minutes and really check in with yourself.
How are you feeling, really, really feeling? What is going on that you know you need to deal with that you have been avoiding?
Your chocolate addiction, I am sure is masking this.
For example. what simple thing can I do to support myself here:
1. Acknowledge how you are feeling.
2. Sitting in that or those feelings.
3. Do you need help and support here to deal with them?
4. Reaching out for that support- yep really.
5. Do you need to put an action plan together to deal with a problem.
6. Do it.
7. Don't make it too much, just little things as they will add up!
8. Pat yourself on the back, give yourself a hug, you did good!!
9. Happy dance, well done, I'm thrilled for you, you gave yourself a bit of your precious loving care and attention to yourself!! Yay!
Whatever it is, just start getting really in touch with it and start putting a plan together to face it, feel it, and deal with it.
Your loving kind and precious time and attention will be so well spent on you, dearest chocoholic, you are more than worth it!
The beauty of taking a bit of time, on yourself is that it will benefit everything else in your life, every other relationship you have!!
I know it's like magic, it so is!!!!!
Remember you are a priceless, lovely person, whatever you are doing and however you are feeling, and yep even if you have just binged on chocolate, or are even now binging on chocolate!
You are beautiful, worthy of love, care and attention now and always!
Big hugs, and I trust that helps.
Just aim to carve out ten minutes a day, and let me know how that feels and what happens- I am excited for you!!
Chunk of Chocolate Rehab :" Your relationship with you sets the tone for every other relationship you have." Carol M. Barrett Awakening People
Love this. We have been taught to look for happiness, joy, and pleasure, and er well everything with others, with things, with chocolate even! If you are looking for love, kindness and well anything everywhere else but from yourself and for yourself, then whatever you get and receive from anyone, or anything else only goes so far if you do not love, respect and accept yourself! That's not to say that we cannot get happiness, pleasure, love and support from others, of course we can too!
But, if you do not have a healthy relationship with yourself, anything anyone can do only goes so far! Even chocolate if you have a relationship with chocolate, at the expense of yourself, then your relationships with anyone else are sorely limited.
To change this, starts with awareness, and then a decision to want to get help and support. It's not going to be super easy to change these habits of a lifetime and start to become your own best friend instead of own worst enemy, but it's so possible, one day at a time. It's a process, and you are so worth it! It's so possible.
To get help and support with this, you can hire me at the moment on a ' pay what you want,' basis, for a limited time, and get one-to-one support from me, someone who has healed from a chocolate addiction that went on for years, so I know how you feel!
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment and we will arrange a session.
I trust that helps, if you are feeling like your own worst enemy at the moment, that's okay, just be gentle on yourself, forgive yourself and right now commit to doing something about it. Change happens with a decision to, simple as.
