Im gunna end up the size of a house if i don't sort this out soon but the last 4 or 5 weeks i cant stop eating chocolate. every night i have to go and buy 3 chocolate bars and its driving me insane! what is wrong with me? i think it started as comfort eating as i was feeling low, but its got out of control now and its quite worrying that something so silly as chocolate can be so so so addictive!! HELP!!! how can i stop?

I dont have any answers but I am the same, just can't stop eating the stuff. Will be popping back to see if there are any miracle cures!!

Buy a bar of chocolate, stick it in the fridge so it's really hard, then grate a bit and only eat what you can pick up with the tip of your finger. You'll have a chocolatey taste in your mouth ages (any dentists reading this, don't hate me!) but you won't eat as much.

I have this problem too, as chocolate is my most serious temptation, and I am trying to find a way to stop.

First important step - I've seen some recent unflattering photos of myself and think "OK, if that's how I really look, it's time to call a halt to all this!" Another factor is the warmer weather is approaching, and I'll no longer be able to hide under a baggy jumper, or a big coat. The last "trick" is that any chocolate in the house goes into dd's special "treasure box" and I will not raid any sweets from there - in my mind, it's akin to an addict raiding their child's piggy bank to feed their habit.

So far, those 3 points have motivated me through the past week. Hopefully if I've made it through Easter without breaking down, I'm on my way to breaking the chocolate habit. Good luck with your own efforts!

Or try my 'giving up smoking' tip - every time you want to have some chocolate, clean your teeth.

(Am I redeeming myself with dentists here?!)

I need to be hypnotised or something to make me feel sick whenever i think of chocolate so that i wont be able to eat it!
