Chocolate causes Serotonin (the chemical that makes you feel good emotionally) to increase Eliminating chocolate entirely is as difficult to do as quitting smoking, because if you eliminate chocolate, you'll want that serotonin fix even more How do you get more Serotonin? Smoking increases Serotonin in your body, but NO ONE would recommend you start smoking - or smoke more if you already do What else? Carbohydrates! All you have to do is fill up with cake & icing to raise your Serotonin, right?
NOT! To get the Serotonin levels you need & train your body to get by on lower levels, adjust your chocolate intake What has worked for me is to switch to a darker chocolate (Hershey's Dark Kisses?) & eat one at a time I let each one completely melt I have gone from 12 down to needing just 4 a day.

I like to buy my candy ahead of time, but I am afraid I will eat it. So I try to buy candy I don't like. 431
That would be easy because I only like chocolate candy. However, I want to give the trick or treaters chocolate. So I want to buy chocolate. Since I don't like peanut butter in my chocolate, I buy chocolate candy with peanut butter. Then I don't eat it!
