I had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into when I started this chocolate fast.
On Sunday May 6, which was day two, I think I actually experienced withdrawal symptoms. My wife will say I was just depressed because I had to go to work the next day. But we all know she doesn't understand.
I crave chocolate constantly. I'm thinking about it ALL the TIME.
And I'm getting no empathy at home either. Here's Laura's take on it:
I just don't get this no chocolate for a month thing. It's preposterous. Just don't eat any. How hard is that? What's the big deal?
And to give you an idea of how my cards are stacked gene-wise, here's what my one of my sisters had to say:
YIKES!! 30 whole days without chocolate? I made it three days once or twice... and ONE time I made it for 10 days. It sucked.
So there you go. Maybe it's the chocolate withdrawal talking here, but it sure seems like everything's against me.
