A poll for all three of my readers

I'm working on this strange little idea (which may die in vitro, but I'll work on it a little while longer), so I have a question for people.

Other than to stay alive, why do you eat?

Hmm. Off the top of my head:

- For the sensual pleasure of it: enjoyment of the way food tastes, smells, and looks; the crunch or gooey enjoyment of chewing; the warmth or cool of it in mouth and belly; etc.
- To satisfy an addiction or craving (i.e. coffee for caffeine, choco-holics, etc.).
- To commemorate a special occasion.
- To make an occasion more special.
- To socialize or to ease or lubricate social situation (e.g. at parties when you don't know what to do or say, you can make a trip to the buffet table or busy yourself with the dip to ease yourself into the social situation).
- Out of habit or boredom.
- As a replacement activity for something else (e.g. a lot of smokers substitute smoking with snacking when trying to quit.)
- As a treat or reward (e.g. "I just sold a story, so I'm treating myself to sushi!")
- As recreation.
