You've got to break the habit. I used to eat loads of crap - biscuits, bread, chocolate, cakes etc but I decide to take a more paleo approach and, it's taken a while, but I am now into the habit of eating that way. I have certain things that I eat most days (eggs, salad, fruit, nuts, meat) and these make up the vast bulk of my diet. I relax a bit on weekends and have the occasional biscuit during the week but I have my main diet and I just stick to it through habit, meaning I don't have to think too hard about what I'm eating. I used to be addicted to sugar I'm sure, but I think I've broken that now.
One tip, if you can't ditch the chocolate, is to buy the darkest chocolate you can find (I get a 90% cocoa one from Sainsbury's) and just have a couple of little squares in the evening. It satisfies the cocoa craving (if you have one) and is so rich that you only want a little bit. Supposed to be good for you too.
