  1. As a psychotherapist who specializes in non-substance abuse addictions, this is a great resource. So many people do not recognize that time on the internet can be just as destructive a coping mechanism for avoiding dealing with needed changes in your life as other forms of numbing out.

I just love those melty, velvety chocolates (although read the wrappers at your own peril, as they can cause serious indigestion.) If I don’t watch it, I can eat a dozen or so before I know it, so this might qualify as an addiction. A mild one, but still. So I was thinking, maybe I should do something about it… Next time I’m tempted to buy a bag of those delectable chocolates, I think I’ll try some of those little Hershey’s “Bliss” chocolates instead. Maybe that will cure me of my Dove addiction…
