Happy Hare Krishnas

These are all very good points. I hope that someone will start giving seminars on these most important issues. Hotel and restaurant managers have to go to school to learn these things. McDonald’s has a special school for managers. we should have that also.

If Krishna does not accept my Chocolates, Who should I offer them to?

Chocoholism is a faceitious word refering to an addiction to chocolate. A person who is addicted to chocolate is often described as a Chocoholic. However, most people who say they are chocoholics aren’t actually addicted to chocolate; they simply have a strong liking for the food.

[edit] Chemistry of Chocolate
Chocolate contains a variety of substances, some of which are addictive (such as caffeine–in trace quantities). These include:

Sugar - Chocolate (as opposed to Cocoa) contain large amounts of sugar.
Caffeine - The chemical present in coffee and tea.
Theobromine - Various theobromines are present.
Anandamide - An endogenous cannabinoid which is also naturally produced in the Human brain.
Tryptophan - An essential amino acid that is a precursor to Serotonin an important neurotransmitter involved in regulating moods.
Phenylethylamine - An endogenous amphetamine which is also naturally produced in the Human brain. Often described as a ‘love chemical’.
It may be possible for the human brain to become accustomed to chocolate at regular intervals.

Chocolate may be addictive and could negatively affect the health of a chocoholic if consumed in large amounts. Proponents of hypnotherapy claim that “chocoholism” can be treated through aversives, in effect forcing the addict to associate chocolate consumption with negative stimuli.

[edit] Origins of the word “Chocoholic”
Etymologically, “chocoholic” is a portmanteau of “chocolate” and “alcoholic”, though some linguists complain that the word, by construction, implies addiction to “chocohol” rather than “chocolate”, suggesting that “chocolatic” is a more appropriate neologism.
