I threw the chocolates away.
Every Christmas, my students bless me with the most thoughtful gifts. And chocolates tend to take up a bulk of them. I am so thankful that I work with families who are so giving. But I struggle with chocolate. I like it. I love it. I want some more of it. My biggest problem is that I cannot just stop with one if there is a whole box of it sitting around.
I tried though.
I tried to just have one. And then I even tried to freeze the box. Thinking that frozen chocolate wouldn’t be appealing because I’d have to pull one piece out at a time. No, I really just ended up eating it frozen. Then it lacked flavor. So my instincts said to try another piece. Maybe that was just that one piece that lacked flavor. So I threw that box out. But within a few days, the same dilemma appeared with another box. I had 4 boxes of chocolates hiding in the back of the cupboard. So, I finally had to throw them all away.
My house is empty of chocolate. I’m ok. I survived. I needed to clean house.
I like chocolate and still will. But I like to be in control of my life a lot more than I like this vice.
