I have tried going without it before, the longest I've lasted was a month and it was extremely challenging. I will never understand people who say they don't like chocolate. They must be lying. When I was teaching in Cape Town I celebrated my 23rd birthday. The students and teachers bought me so much chocolate I nearly exploded! I hope they didn't think I was going to share it..." - Caroline Devane

Although we often do get into fights, we will always love each other by the end of the day. Thus, I cannot live without my family." -Akihan
