Can you get addicted to chocolate?
I agree with the above replies but from a medical point of view, I dont think it is known as an addiction in the same way that some people are addicted to drugs and alcohol.
Regardless of whether it is officially recognised as an addiction or a craving, the feeling to the individual can be very similar.
"Although there are similarities between eating chocolate and drug use, generally researchers believe that chocolate “addiction” is not a true addiction. While chocolate does contain potentially mood-altering substances, these are all found in higher concentrations in other less appealing foods such as broccoli.
A combination of chocolate’s sensory characteristics — sweetness, texture and aroma — nutrients, and chemicals, together with hormonal and mood swings, largely explains chocolate cravings."

YES I BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN GET ADDICTED TO CHOCOLATE, YOU KNOW THOSE DOVE CHOCOLATE CANDY? I LOVE IT I WOULD PUT A HANDFULL OF THEM IN MY POCKET AND LEAVE THEM IN MY POCKETS FOR A FEW MINUTES, BY THEN THEY WOULD BE WARM AND SOFT AND SO RICH WHEN IT'S IN YOUR MOUTH. (CAN YOU TELL THAT I'M A CHOCOHOLIC.)
Yes you can get addicted to chocolate. My mom was a serious chocoholic. She used to eat chocolate like almost every night but now she can't anymore because she got diabetes from her bad habit. If your eating chocolates or sweets for that matter, eat it in moderation (to avoid the addiction)
yes you could, just like smoking ,anyone can get addicted to something. but its pretty rare, if its something that you have to have every day, and started to get withdrawel symptoms if you didnt have it, then that would be considered an addiction. otherwise you could just like it a lot!
addiction is something mentally occuring. it's not proven by any studies that it is a chemical in your brain but, you can be addicted to anything. it doesn't necessarily have to be drugs or alcohol. I happened to be addicted to pickles. =/ lmao.
anything that alters your mood or trait of thought can be addictive
and yes food has been known as an addictive thing (especially in america...)
You can pretty much get addicted to anything. I'm addicted to icecream on toast.0.o. Why do you think there are chocoholics? :) Britz
You certainly can. Addiction can be of anything. But it's espectially with alchohol, smoking, and drugs.
yes, I could eat chocolate for hours at a time, If I had enough and it wouldn't be that fattening.,
