I like chocolate ..... don't I?

This article puts my chocolate cravings in an interesting light. Perhaps I'm one of those individuals with the low-dopamine-receptor gene variant, and that's what compels me to eat so much chocolate in one sitting.

Some people seem content with a few squares, but I will rapidly munch through an entire bar and be ready for more in due time.

I know it's very speculative, but ... could this also be the basis for my family's supposed "predisposition" to drug abuse? One gene, manipulating my response to everything from chocolate to alcohol?

Well, it's probably a collection of genes at least, but still...
