Pig Squeals

If I'm so smart, why do I still try to eat only a little chocolate? Why do I think I can have just one bite as a treat, and then let it go for some weeks or days? Why do I think "this time I won't binge?" The pig squeals, and I feed it; the pig squeals immediately for more, and I feed it; the pig continues to squeal and squeal and squeal. The pig, thinking only of its bottomless desire for sweets, chocolate whenever possible, squeals and squeals and squeals. I am so tired of the pig. Why do I continue to feed it? When will I ignore the squeals? When will I understand that the pig is not me?
