About the time I think I can live without it, I break down and restock. Something about chocolate as a comfort food...a candy cravers delight...

I am a female, and what female does not crave chocolate at least once a month ;) I am diabetic.. so I have to be careful and have learned to go with out it.. except for 1 week a month.. Then I have to monitor and give up things for a little chocolate so my sugar levels stay where they need to be.

Diabetic here too. I have found eating the chocolate with lots of fiber (from something else usually), does the trick of spreading out the blood sugar rise.

I love chocolate! I try not to eat it every day or anything, but I need it lol. :) I'm very picky about my chocolate though. I don't like white chocolate, and I'm not keen on milk chocolate unless it has sufficient companions like wafer. I also don't like chocolate ice cream or anything that involves frozen chocolate.

Dollar stores are the worst. Chocolate is so cheap I can't help myself.

I believe that I could live without chocolate. I wouldn't be a happy camper though. Leaving chocolate alone for a while might actually be a good thing, for my waistline. But my taste buds would hate me!

I can't live without chocolate nor do I want to... it's a "feel good" food.

Nope, I consider it a food group all in it's own. Sometimes, chocolate is the only thing that keeps me from hurting people.

Yes I could live without it. I'm not a big lover of sweets, I will eat sweets sometimes but I have to have a craving for it.

Well I am glad to meet another addict. I love the milk chocolate the best, but won't turn away any good chocolate.

Well, I'm sure I could but I have no intention of trying. I love chocolate. I do control myself with it and don't eat it every day. But chocolate is a pure delight to me and I deserve some pure delight every once in a while.

Choclit?"IT'S ABSOLUTELY SINFUL!"as according to my wifewho at 5'5"and weighs 110 lbs.gobbles a box of chocolate covered macadamianuts in one sitting!Her penance,more exercises & chore time.As for me,I couldn't resist it either.But I don't think it's sinful,it just gives me the opportunity to buy myself new clothes...from XL to XXL! All of us in our family of 10 (8 kids and us)believe that chocolates give you that natural high...a touch of heaven though you have to work for it!!!Choclits-whether dark,milk,plain or mixed is discovered by a saint.

Have to say I am not a chocolate lover .. I quite like the smell of it ... but often go for weeks or even months before I buy any chocolate .. I'd much rather have savoury foods ... cheese in particular .. that's my weakness ...
