Keep chocolate in check: Stop Being A Chocoholic

Letting Go Of Chocolate Addiction Using NLP and Hypnotherapy

Let’s face it, most people enjoy eating chocolate.  It tastes good, there’s no doubt about it.  For some people, though, eating chocolate is not just an occasional indulgence; it is a compulsion and addiction.  Their thoughts are consumed by chocolate and they are overwhelmed with the craving to get their hands on some.  No matter how much will power they summon up, the chocolate craving wins every time.

Is Chocolate Addiction Real?

Scientifically speaking, no, but from a behavioural standing, yes.  The smell, the taste, the texture, and the emotional “high” that some people get from chocolate help to create an extremely powerful craving that has a negative effect on the other parts of your life.  In some cases, chocoholics get emotional satisfaction from eating chocolate, using it to soothe themselves and cover up other problems and anxieties in their lives.


When it come right down to it, if you’re a chocoholic then your thoughts are easily swayed toward thinking about chocolate.  The sight of it, the smell of it, even walking past the candy counter can trigger a very powerful craving.  It is so powerful, in fact, because it is a learned thought pattern that is so deep in your mind it has become an unconscious and automatic response to anything chocolate.  The only way to break the habit is to break the unconscious thought pattern and replace it with a new one that triggers a new behaviour.


Wouldn’t it be great to escape from that craving and take back control of your life?  You’ve probably tried to stop many times, but will power alone is not enough.  You need to actually re-train your mind and teach it a new way to think and respond when chocolate is near.  Because NLP and hypnotherapy work in combination with each other to re-train your conscious and unconscious mind, they are excellent tools for getting rid of your chocolate addiction.

How NLP And Hypnotherapy Can Help With Chocolate Addiction

Because chocolate addiction is so strongly based in your patterns of thought, it is an especially easy problem to resolve using NLP and hypnotherapy.  The techniques reach into your conscious mind and your unconscious mind, teaching you new patterns of thought that are more balanced and in control.  You will create the freedom for yourself to say “no” when chocolate is offered to you, or simply eat just one piece and end it at that.  Right now that may seem out of reach, but it is closer than you think if you tap into the benefits of NLP and hypnotherapy.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Chocolate addiction is usually resolved in just a single one-hour session, but some people find they need two or three sessions to completely overcome this addiction.
