Rehab for Chocoholics
I am writing to you today about Rehab for Chocoholics…mm many people laugh, really when they hear what I
have called my business! They are instantly curious and are intrigued to know more. Chocolics often laugh and either say they are happy with their addiction thank you very much or they actually ask me what I do rather intently!! LOL!
Why Rehab for Chocoholics Carrie?
Quite simply as I needed it first, and as there was not anything like it in the world in early 2004, I decided to take time off to create something, as I checked myself into my own ‘Chocolate Rehab,’ and started out my exploratory adventure seeing how I could overcome my addiction to chocolate. At first, I hold my hand up, it was very, very hard as I really did not know what to do, who to turn to or even how to do it. Added to this, very few people were taking in seriously, other than the handful of Hypnotists, or nutritionalists, who whilst I am sure they were effective in helping chocoholics, I felt I wanted something deeper and more wholistic, and dare I say… multi-level! I feel women are wired for the ‘multiple,’ approach, be it our brains, our feelings, our roles in life, or even our orgasms, and my instinct told me that I would be wanting a ‘multiple’ approach here, so I just kept going!
Today, I am in the process of adding a few extra layers of depth, to my Chocolate Rehab programme, and taking away a few layers too, so that it reflects who I am today which is a very different person to when I started out with this work in Australia in 2008. Essentially, my work is now more spiritual, it’s much lighter in both tone and in it’s intent and energy!
I have added the word ‘rehab,’ really as it sounded good, and also it was a way of triggering the world to take notice and take chocolate addiction seriously! LOL.! It does attract attention, and I have a good feeling that my work will help many women feel good about themselves, learn to love and accept themselves much more and help them to trust in who they are and follow their dreams, as they balance out their addiction to chocolate. I do feel that adding the word ‘rehab,’ is symbolic too, as it is about deeply going into one’s heart, body & spirit to really address the underlying issues which is of course what happens in rehab for say drugs or alcohol.
As ever, I look forward to hearing from you, and value your feedback and am open to your suggestions for future posts!
Love, giggles & light,
