Hello I am kat. I have gone To overeaters anonymous and found great help there, but I was needing something more. I have been binge free for 6 months now but I have started to notice a trend with my trigger foods. They where all high in sugar, fat and wheat. I now know that my overeating has been part of my food addiction. It is funny that when you start working the steps to fix one thing another one shows up. I have noticed lately that I have been eating large amounts of sugar and baked goods. I looked at the meal plan and thought the world is ending since that I cant have my Coke Zero:nightmare:. One more sign that I am a food addicit. I have always had that addictive personality, Yet I managed not to go to far the deep end. since I have decided to try and get absidant I am wondering how I am going to handle the holidays? I know that if I dont go cold turkey I will never do it. I am thankful that i have a supportaive husband and family with my decision. I am also seeing a therapist for my eating disorder.

The holidays are hard for anyone, and especially hard for us food addicts when the holiday is based on food! Thanksgiving is coming up, but it's definitely possible to become abstinent from all the forms of sugar, flour & wheat that we're addicted to and to stay abstinent on that day. There will be a phone meeting marathon the night before Thanksgiving and also all day on Thanksgiving. Information on this is here (scroll to bottom of page):
I (http://www.foodaddictsanonymous.org/phone-meetings)n the meantime, I'd suggest trying some meetings and continuing to come to Online Support to read and to share. Food Addicts Anonymous does work for food addicts, I definitely know that! Welcome, and keep coming back, Kat.
