I'm addicted to............
What would the world be like without {{CHOCOLATE}}?
I don't think it would be fun at all

Here's what Dr. Oz has to say about it:

Chocolate is similar, as University of Michigan researchers proved, using the medication naloxone.
Normally, this drug is used to treat heroin overdose, because it stops heroin from attaching to receptors on brain cells.
The research team gave naloxone, not to heroin addicts, but to chocolate lovers – people who really tended to binge on chocolate.

After infusing the drug intravenously, the researchers offered a tray of chocolate candies.
It turned out that chocolate had lost much of its appeal, showing that the lure of chocolate is not all taste and mouth-feel.
Rather, chocolate HIJACKS your brain chemistry,
triggering the same receptors that heroin affects, and when researchers block that brain effect with naloxone, much of chocolate’s attraction is gone.

Now I get brain chemistry has been HIJACKED!!
That explains a lot....I think I need to get me some {{NALOXONE}}

Got me giggling again!

I've always known that chocolate was my addiction! I seriously think there should be a way to hook up a bag with chocolate syrup to drip into my veins.

Shame on Dr. Oz for letting the world know our dirty little secret!

Hi! My name's Paula and I am a chocaholic!
