i love chocolate. in fact i think i am genuinely addicted. i have a king sized mars bar for breakfast and then various other confectionary delights througout the day.

and we always have a couple of massive bars of chocolate in the house for me. the girls aren't really that bothered by it.

so i decided yesterday to give up chocolate to save money, my teeth and my health.

i plan to be chocolate bar free for 3 weeks. that's the time it takes to kick a habit according to a random page i found on the internet. it wil be the mornings when i miss it most.

last night i watched as the girls ate the remains of my household chocolate store:

I really enjoy your site. It's fun seeing the world through your eyes! *G* I can understand both your love for chocolate and your need to stop consuming it. I have been trying to cut sugar out of my diet. There's some wonderful sugar-free chocolates out on the market now, though, which taste the same as regular. Though we aren't in the same countries (I'm in the US), I imagine you might be able to obtain some from here or discover the equivalent there. I like Russel Stover's, Sorbee and Este brands. Hershey's also makes some sugar-free chocolates as well.

Good luck!

thanks aravis. i've decided i should also give up the taste of chocolate. i think it must be psych-o-logical (emphasise the 'o' please) so if i can avoid anything chocolately that will be a good thing.

i had a banana this morning instead.

perhaps once i'm free from confecto-badness i'll search out your suggestions.

i gave up alcohol for a year once and near the end tried alcohol free lager and it actually tasted quite nice, so perhaps that's the way to go.

oh dear. no chocolate? i don't think i could manage with that. i keep a box of "chocolatey-coated" viva puffs in my office drawer (they're "cookies" with a graham wafer bottom, a smidgen of a "jam" or jelly-type substance, and a marshmallow on top, coated with what they call a "chocolatey" coating.

my gramma used to always buy carob chips, they're like chocolate chips but not chocolate. they're actually pretty good. especially stolen from the fridge when no one is looking...

After downing yet anoher little box of chocolate almonds for the third day in a row, i know its time to give up chocolate for a little while, its getting rediculous. i dont even enjoy it that much when I gorge myself on it.
its nice knowing others are trying to do the same.
