OK, so Easter is nearly upon us and that dreaded moment for a chocoholic is rapidly heading your way, when you simply cannot offend your friend, partner or possibly even still your mom – and refuse, oh so absolutely refuse, that simply divine looking chocolate egg that’s been bought for you. Of course you promise yourself you’ll be really good, accept the gift graciously and politely but firmly say “Oh no, I couldn’t possibly open it now having only just finished eating …”. As a recovering chocoholic you will, of course, then just take it back to your place and absolutely not ever open it, but will perhaps just save it for when some friends come round instead, so they can eat it for you.
You can resist the Easter Egg!
Having spent the last three months shedding all the weight you put on over Christmas and the New Year, having ‘taken the vow’ to forget chocolate – resisting opening the Easter Egg is going to be no big deal at all. After all, since making that New Years resolution not to even buy any candies as part of your diet, you’ve not even thought about buying any chocolate and – if you don’t buy it you can’t eat it, simple really isn’t it? So far the diets gone really well, you’ve dropped two dress sizes, feel fitter than you have been for years and all because of your new strong will. But then, as a recovering chocoholic, with chocolate suddenly back in your life, the dark thoughts start to enter your head – “Mmm I wonder if my friends fancy coming round for girl’s night in, so they can eat the chocolate for me before I feel tempted”. Why only yesterday wasn’t everyone saying how they’d love see that blockbuster movie that’s just out for rental? Oh dear, you’ve already ordered the movie, but no one else can come around tonight, what shall you do?
Now you’ve done it!
Well needless to say you’re going to watch that movie and we all know how great it is to be on your own watching a movie! Next thing you know you’re feeling like ‘Billie no mates’ and that Easter Egg doesn’t look quite as big as it did and perhaps you could open it yourself and just have a little bit of it. But, we all know where this is going – it’s going to end in tears as just the same as for an alcoholic, one drink is never enough; and sure enough before you know it the whole egg is gone and you’re heading off to the all-night store for more … and another one bites the dust!
