my worst addiction is represented by sweets, <perhaps>.

I know "Perhaps" generally appears at the beginning of the sentence, but is it also possible to place it at the end of the sentence, after a comma?
For example: Today my worst addiction is represented by sweets, perhaps.
I seem to remember reading such a similar construction sometimes, but I don't know whether it was grammatically correct or wasn't.
Could you help me?

    I think it would be better if punctuated differently and more idiomatic: "Today, my worst addiction main weakness is represented by one for sweets - perhaps. But it could be for lying in bed instead of getting up." The word "perhaps" should be said in a self-questioning tone.
