Is chocolate addiction real?
Personally, I believe so.
Jessie Pavlenka, the American Personal trainer says:
” When you are powerless over something you are addicted to it. “
That was how I used to be….
As a teenager and during my twenties and lot of my thirties,, I literally could not walk past a shop without investing in my next ‘chocolatey fix.’
It was common for me to prefer a few bars of chocolate than deal with my stress, problems or indeed life.
Yes I would use my addiction to chocolate as way of numbing myself.
I numbed through eating a LOT of chocolate.
And not just a lot of chocolate..
It was the almost constant flow.. of it…
So, personally I do believe chocolate addiction exists
that it is real and alive and ‘kicking.’
As to whether people want to heal from it
chunk? Well that’s another story.
I know I created Chocolate Rehab™ out of sheer
desperation… as I finally realised just how
powerless I was with it.
My process is for chocoholics who wish to unwrap the heart of their addiction.
It is not anti-chocolate either, ie I do not ban it.
Rather it is about looking at addressing what you are numbing,
and learning to love and accept yourself
no matter how much chocolate
you might be eating or not eating.
I would love to hear your experiences.
