Greetings,

No.

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Why would you think that? I was told you can even eat chocolate on Uposatha Days, which I do.
