One unusual side effect of morphine is a very severe chocolate sweet tooth. At first I thought my new found craving for chocolate and sweet coffee had nothing to do with morphine. Then I read a book about junkies which talked all about how junkies sometimes live on nothing but water and chocolate bars, and explained the chocolate/ sweet cravings as a side affect of most opiates. (Not that I equate myself with a junkie). But that put it in context. I find that at work, I will got through five chocolate bars a day and have started to add tons of sugar to my morning latte. (Yes, I stop by the local coffee bar on the way to work for a latte with my morphine. Doesn't everyone??) Morphine and chocolate and coffee--something poetic and seductive in a mildly evil way about those words. Sounds like a song Lou Reed might write. (Actually, didn't the Rolling Stones write a song about morphine?)
