If there's anything in the world I could ever be addicted to, it would be chocolate. However, I'm not actually addicted to it. During the India trip, I ate chocolate only once during the entire 3 weeks. Even now, sitting at home a lot, I don't eat much chocolate (thankfully I'm not snacking much at all).
Except I think chocolate is my go-to "drug" when I'm feeling anxious or stressed. I know I used to eat chocolate when I'd get back from an owner meeting. Yesterday, I got my first bank statement with zero in the incoming column and I took a closer look at my budget. And I opened a bag of Ghiradelli chocolate chips. My equivalent of pouring myself a glass of scotch.
So, is that an addiction? It's certainly self-medication!
