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.
 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.
