WHAT DOES CHOCAHOLIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

chocaholic

Chocoholic

A chocoholic is a person who craves or compulsively consumes chocolate. There is some medical evidence to support the existence of actual addiction to chocolate. However, the term is mostly used loosely or humorously to describe a person who is inordinately fond of chocolate. The word chocoholic, coined in 1968, is a portmanteau of "chocolate" and "alcoholic." 'Chocoholism' is quite common. In studies of food cravings, chocolate and chocolate confectioneries almost always top the list of foods people say they crave.
