I'm finding it hard to adjust to the chill in the air
I hate wearing a hat 'cause it flattens my hair
I'm not ready for Christmas, it should still be July
It was a sweltering summer, but the time sure did fly

A new year approaches but I'm feeling behind
I can't seem to catch up in my body or mind
I'm feeling all fuzzy and kinda blue
When I'm not chasing buses I know not what to do

Off for some chocolate for that pick me up treat
Smooth, dark and tasty, it doesn't need to be sweet
I'm feeling a little bit sick of the stuff
But my brain seems to need it, isn't life tough?!

I'm stopping myself from poisoning my whole being
Time to detox so from chocolate I'm fleeing
Where can I hide and get through the cravings
(Giving up chocolate will increase my savings!!!!!!!)

So once again, I'm giving it up
Does "Cafe Mocha" count since it comes in a cup?
So long to my friend "Starbucks" so dear
So long chocolate balls and chocolate chips too I fear

I'll try once again, and I hope this time I won't fail
Cause I feel kinda sick and a little bit frail
Please no chocolates for me....not for a while
Once I've detoxed from chocolate, I'll have reason to smile!

Hey, good luck. You've got guts trying to kick the brown monster this time of year!

oH WOW! My hat is off to you too. I'm in the same boat you are, but with coffee; I can't function in the morning without it.

Great poem!

I had Scharffen Berger hot cocoa today!

All fuzzy and kinda blue... love it. Great picture.

At it again, eh? When are you just going to get the patch and be done with it? ;)

Love the poem, btw.

Ah Patti! T'were only it true! I wish there was a patch. I suppose I could have more dangerous addictions, but with the amount I eat I can't imagine what!
