Several years ago I was getting severe stomach cramps and intestinal cramps. I would be doubled over in pain and could not move without whimpering.
I finally saw the doctor and he said I was having a biological reaction to chocolate! Chocolate was a staple of my diet and if I wanted to relieve myself of the cramps I would have to give up chocolate...permanently.
What I decided to do was wean myself off. First it was cut the portion in half. After a week or so I did the full portion every other day. Then I went to half portion every other day. Then I went to quarter portion every day. Then I went to quarter portion every other day until I was clean. I could not have done it without the help of my parents and my wonderful fiance (now wife).
