Chocolate is definitely a drug of choice among many! I know many a menstruating woman who, without chocolate, would have killed a few people by now.
While I am not one, I am sure that if I didn't have my coffee and cigarettes I would be unbearable... at least for a while!
A lot of things we consume on a daily basis have addictive qualities, physical or mental. Sugar is one of them that we ignore a lot. I once completely
cut sugar out of my diet (including fruit sugars), and got violently ill for 3 days afterwards. It wasn't my body that was making me ill, but the
yeast inside my body essentially revolting. It was terrible, but I learned that sometimes my cravings were not mine at all, but other organisms living
(harmlessly?) inside me that were causing them. I think twice now before picking up a pack of gummy-bears at 7-11!
