    My problem? This is a challenge thread, if it was so easy it wouldn't need it's own thread. I am happy to admit I struggle with chocolate.

    It's great that you don't keep chips in the house and that's a useful strategy when you are in the house. Not so great when you are out and about and chocolate is on display everywhere (supermarket, newsagent, petrol station, work chocolate boxes, vending machines etc etc).

    But I stand by my comment, your comment was condescending.

    And I stand by my comment that there is a simple solution.

    I failed a tiny bit yesterday DS was choosing a treat and chose a marshmallow Santa... They were 2 for $1.50 so I had to buy 2 (had to?) I justified it with brilliant at the time reasons.

    1- I didn't want him having 2 that's way too much sugar hit for a toddler (even 1 was!)

    2- it's only a light coating of chocolate

    There was a fleeting 3rd reasoning that I would save it for him to have as a treat another day. Hahahahahhahaaha

    So what would a normal non-chocolate addicted person have done? Only bought 1 Santa? Or saved the Santa for DS another day? Neither of those thoughts could push their way to the rational part of my brain at the time though in hindsight it really does seem simple.

    I found that chocolate so disappointing. I was expecting more of a Reese's peanut butter flavour.

    I'm still going strong. Even yesterday, there was chocolate in the house but I managed to resist temptation and no chocolate was consumed!

    I agree that anything minty gets rid of cravings. I try to do this a lot but the chocolate often makes it into my mouth before the mint does!

    I have done almost three days no chocolate now. Been helped by the fact I have been feeling quite sick for most of that time so not wanted it anyway!

    DS had a choc covered gingerbread man at the xmas markets today. But I resisted and had a pretzel instead. Mmmm I love fresh doughy pretzels! Salt rather than sugar lol
