NEWS COMMENT: It’s so important to confide in somebody about abuse

Have your say

It’s a Choccy Horror Show in our house at the moment.

We’ve decided to take our annual holiday in May this year and my wife and I are keen to try to lose a couple of chins each so that we can bear to look back at our holiday photos without grimacing.

Behind every cupboard door lurks some form of delicious, enticing treat that’s screaming out to be wolfed down in seconds.

How can a person with any self-respect seriously choose an apple over a chocolate egg?

It doesn’t make any sense!

Apparently rationing is the way to make it work – break off a little and wrap the rest back up in foil.

Alternatively, and I think this may be our solution: open it, eat it all and work hard on one’s denial.
