Death by chocolate?

Chocolate is always associated with such negative words like sinful or Devil’s food.  Why so bad when it tastes SO good? 

Perhaps because it consumes me.  Really.  I baked brownies last night when we had company over for dinner.  Even though I was full, I ate two.  And what was the first thing I put in my mouth when I woke up?  Another brownie — even before my morning coffee!  It’s sad, really.  My younger two kids catch me often sneaking sweet treats because I “smell like chocolate.”  My older two probably know better than to say something after all these years. 😉 

I complain often about how unhealthy I feel, how little energy I have, and how nothing I own fits me comfortably anymore.  Yet, here I am eating half a pan of brownies in the past 24 hours.

The first step in the road to recovery is to admit you have an addiction.  So here goes:

Hi, my name is Bethany.  And I’m completely addicted to chocolate. 

Now I just need to stop bringing it into my home.
