Does choice actually exist?

Here's an example to illustrate what I mean:


Let's say I have a 'choice' between options A and B, and I pick A. Was that really my choice? Something or multiple things caused me to pick A. What if I chose those things? Well, something caused me to pick the cause that caused me to pick A. And so on. Whenever we come back to a choice, there's always something before it that caused it to happen. My point is, I was never going to pick B. It was impossible for me to pick B because something caused me to pick A. And under different circumstances, if something caused me to pick B, it would be impossible for me to pick A, meaning I never really had a choice. I was always going to pick B, and that was predetermined.
