If saying "it wasn't really a choice because I could never choose that" worked, there would be all manner of criminals who would be set free on the defense they "didn't have a choice because they felt compelled" to do whatever it was. The real zinger there is many of them would be telling the truth - they really couldn't help themselves. Nevertheless, what they did was a crime, and they don't get a free pass because "it wasn't a choice".
Any other choice works the same way. You don't get to claim it's "not a choice" because you feel a compelling urge to choose any particular option. In fact, you'd have to create a convoluted circumstance in order to find a place where you literally can't choose, and those are few and far between and not relevant to our discussion, such as someone forcing you with threat of violence and the like.
