QUIT CHOCOLATE DEPENDENCY
Most people enjoy eating some chocolate from time-to-time. For some people, eating chocolate is not just an occasional indulgence; it is a compulsion. Their thoughts are consumed by chocolate and they are overwhelmed with the craving to get their hands on some and eat it. They cannot put it down until it has all gone. No matter how much will power they sum on up, the chocolate craving wins every time.

‘Chocoholics’ exhibit many of the symptoms of chemical addiction. Sweet and high-fat foods, particularly chocolate, cause the neuro-hormones dopamine and serotonin to be released in the neuron synapse, making us feel happier.
Chocolate is made from the fermented fruit of the cacao tree. The main chemical component of cacao (or cocoa) is theobromine, which is a compound similar to caffeine. It is a mild stimulant. Loads of sugar, palm oil, and milk powder are added to overcome the rather unpleasant taste of cacao.
While scientists still do not know what chemicals in chocolate cause addiction, they think enkephalin a neuro-hormone may drive it.
Researchers at the University of Tampere in Finland found that self-proclaimed chocolate addicts salivated more in the presence of chocolate, and showed a more negative mood and higher anxiety. The researchers said chocolate addicts show many of the traits of chemical addiction.
Chocolate is the most frequently craved food in women with many describing themselves as chocoholics.
“Hi Peter I saw you in Darwin to help me give up my obsession with chocolate and happy to say I haven’t eaten chocolate since and have lost weight, thank you I am in contact to ask if you travel to Canberra as I have mentioned you to a friend who wants to give up smoking, cheers.” Linda B, Darwin NT
Chocoholics experience a compulsive habit of consumption, producing an instant yet temporary feeling of well-being. Abstinence can lead to withdrawal symptoms, such as headaches and agitation. This partly explains the cravings common in seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and pre-menstrual syndrome.
Although there are similarities between eating chocolate and hard drug use, researchers believe that chocolate addiction is not a true addiction at all. While chocolate does contain potentially mood-altering substances, these are all found in higher concentrations in other less appealing foods such as broccoli. The dopamine and serotonin argument seems to fall flat on its face!
The smell, the taste, the texture, and the associated emotional ‘high’ that some people get from chocolate help to create an extremely powerful craving that has a negative effect on the other aspects of life. Chocoholics get emotional satisfaction from eating chocolate, using it to soothe themselves and cover up other problems, loneliness, depression, and anxieties.
