Addiction and Avoidance

One of my online friends recently began playing Candy Crush Saga... and now, like so many others, she is addicted to the game.  
As for me, I've scrupulously, carefully avoided the game, which I, too, love, during Lent.  I've also made sure not to read any books with the word "Chocolate" or any other sweets/treats in the title.
Those Cadbury Creme Egg commercials are more than enough!
