    Like your name--are you Athena, the Wise One, or Aphrodite?

    Once addictive desire is ignited in the brain, whether in response to alcohol, gambling, shopping, relationships, or anything else, a lifelong battle has begun.
    I've battled addictions to tobacco, alcohol, and relationships. I seem to be OK now, although when it comes to chocolate...

      I see you are also a goddess! ;0)

      I relate to different goddesses at different times of my life. I never dreamed I'd have the nerve to imagine myself as Aphrodite, but the older I get, the more possible it seems. Maybe because the eyesight's going, and I've reached the point in life where I really don't give a damn what people think of me.

      Glad all your battling now is the chocolate demon. You're in good company!
