Chocoholics Anonymous

Hello, everybody! My name is Georgiana (Hi, Georgiana!) and I am... a chocoholic. (compassionate looks from the people in the circle). I'm here because I'm trying to give up eating chocolate. I've been eating it since I was very small, almost on a daily basis. I ate it when I was happy; when I was sad; at birthdays and other celebrations; if I felt like having something sweet at midnight; in the middle of Math lectures, just to get myself easier through the tedious formulas on probabilities.

It has hurt me in oh-so many ways, damaged my waistline and misled my brain, and still I find it hard to believe that I am giving it up. I have only begun to shed the addiction and it is so very, very difficult! Last week I was very proud of myself. I had received a chocolate candy on a colleague's nameday and I wanted to give it to someone else. And I did, although I kept it in my very pocket for almost half an hour, and all this time my fingers were over it, carressing it ever so gently (a young man wets his lips)...
But this evening I feel as if I won't be able to continue. Alone, boyfriend out of town for the weekend, no other vices to indulge in, fridge full of chocolate from St Nick... what am I to do? There's only so much self-control that a mere mortal can possess. Mum tried to tempt me with oranges. I ate two of them and drank some orange juice, to no avail. Not even an entire truckload of oranges can help me now! (Hang in there, you can do it!) I need - I covet - I must satisfy my craving! Oh, my sweet! I...
