    As a mother to fairly young children, I quite often have to open packets on chocolate bars etc :sigh: Now, I know I may sound a bit nuts, but I find that smelling the food gives me some weird relief from the cravings that I have for it! :eek: Does anyone else do this? Or am I really just the nutty Irish gal that my friends think I am!! :silly:

    I hope you are not mad as I do the exactly same thing! I have really got into cooking and being around food knowing I'm not tempted makes me feel impowered or I am trying to punish myself lol

    Tell me about it my boss come back from his holiday and bought me a massive bar of spanish chocolate! As he doesn't know I'm on this diet he was surprised I didn't scoff it down in 2 minutes like I would normally do. I just said thanks I will have it later. It took all my willpower and it is still in my drawer at work under lock and key!!!
