That's my view too.

If I like chocolate (and I do :)) and and my brain has been scanned 
destructively in order to make a copy then it's the copy that will 
experience the pleasure of eating chocolate, not me. Instead, I will 
subjectively experience nothing (death). That's not my idea of imortality.
