    Best word that fits the sentence

    Hi,

    Can you replace highlighted word with Other good word.

    (In below sentence, dislike is a normal word which means "you don't like it". But I need another word which shows "strong dislike feeling")


    "I want to eat Chocolates until I feel dislike towards it."


    Thanks
    Chakradhar

    I would use "get tired of them".

    In the following sentence, "dislike" is a normal word which means "you don't like it", but I need another word which shows "strong dislike feeling".


    "I want to eat Chocolates chocolate until I feel dislike towards it."
    Please note my corrections.

    In addition to Mike's suggestion, you could say '...until I feel nauseated by it' or '...until I'm sick of it'.

    Note '...chocolates ... them' or '...chocolate ... it'.

    Re: Best word that fits the sentence

    Shouldn't the first verb be 'wanted', since you no longer feel like eating chocolates?

    (Chakrandhar loves chocolates so much that) s/he wants to eat them until s/he gets tired of them.

    Chadrakhar, as I have said before 'Your clicks on 'Thank' were all the thanks we need.

    Please note that a better title would have been I want to eat chocolate.

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Re: Best word that fits the sentence

    I'd go with Rover's suggestions. We don't normally use tame expressions like "get tired of" or "dislike" with such a meaning.
    "I want to eat chocolate until I puke" is an example of what you might hear, though it's not so polite.
