I am on a "just have one normal sized bar of chocolate on Sunday for a treat" mission for 2013. Suffice to say it's killing me!
Especially as I got a mahoooosive box of Montezumas mixed chocolate bars for chrimbo and they are just too bloody good. But, I'm doing well as I did eat too much las year :(
You could gorge yourself stupid on it until you feel like throwing up, and then eat some more until you do throw up, and then eat just a little bit more.
Bet that will put you off it for a little while
Tend to work with me for alcohol. :)
As my mummy says,
If you don't put in your basket you won't eat it!
I limit myself to one piece of chocolate if a friend passes round some.
As mentioned above, the hard bit is when you are given multiple boxes at Christmas. I've been using the leftover as workout motivation. Only eat it if you've honestly worked hard enough :P I think I've got my money's worth from one small piece when I always feel I didn't quite try hard enough to deserve it!
Don't give up, just modify your tastes. Plain chocolate can be an acquired taste for many but it is offically health food these days so it's worth the effort.
Bars of 85% cocoa Ghanaian in the Co-op for 62p! Yum.
i tried giving up cadbury's once but my colleagues got so sick of my withdrawal misery (admittedly in combo with PMT it really wasn't pretty...)that they bought me a massive bar of dairy milk and begged me to eat the lot. i now consider that it would be utterly irresponsible and inconsiderate of me to risk causing those i care about any further such stress or unhappiness and so reluctantly continue to munch my way through those Dairy Milks and Double Deckers... ;)
Go and get your foot tickled by a Reflexologist. Apparently, one of the side effects of Reflexology can be changing your food tastes.
This problem is easily solved. D-O-N'-T G-I-V-E I-T U-P.
Dr Abseil, Ph.D. in Nutrition and Cocoa Studies)
serious about the PhD bit?
I eat a fair amount of 70-85% cocoa chocolates, I suspect most of the badness in chocolate is the sugar and the goodness in the cocoa,hence darker the better!
White chocolate on the other hand is a travesty.
> serious about the PhD bit?
Errr no, sorry... bad joke. The Ph.D. topic sounds convincing though??
At least it's not as addictive as Halva.

I've been hunting around for scientific evidence to support that claim and I'm screwed if I can find any...:)
Restrict yourself to belgian.
