Everyone is addicted to something right? Sex, drugs, alcohol, technology, food, etcetera, etcetera. I have an addiction. It's candy. It's so bad. I just love it. I'm not talking pectin based chewy fruity candy; I'm talking good old fashioned chocolate. And not that "high in antioxidants, good for you" dark chocolate, I mean caramel chocolate. Chocolate with nouggat. Chocolate with almonds. I'm salivating.
I know that I should want to eat things that are natural and beautiful and good for me. I should want things that make me healthier. And I do, most days. I'll sit and eat steamed veggies, brown rice, and a grilled chicken and be satisfied. Maybe not fulfilled, but satiated. But then thoughts start creeping in. "One little Cadbury Cream egg." "Just a fun sized tootsie roll." "Just a little sweet after dinner."
If I could stop at just a little taste, I'd be fine. But one sugar filled treat turns into 3 or 10. I have no will power, no self control. If I'm on a new health kick, I might not think about candy for a week or even a month, but then I'll spot some sticky fingered kid with brown chocolate spots smeared on her face and I'll get weak.
Why can't candy be good for you? You know, like vitamins or kegals? If you don't share my candy affliction just sub in your vice for the word "candy" and "chocolate"
